On Generations in Elementary Particle Physics

Authors: Paul R. Gerber

Elementary Fermions come in generations, e.g. (electron, muon, tau), neutrino-triplet, etc., which is an experimental fact and sometimes apostrophized as a mystery [1] because a theoretical explanation is missing. That there are more than three generations is considered possible but unlikely. We show that generations follow from group-theoretical arguments and that their number is determined by the number of space dimensions.
