A New Empirical Approach to Quark and Lepton Masses

Authors: Kevin Loch

We present an alternative to the Koide formula and it’s extensions. By introducing two parameters k and alpha_f derived from charged leptons we are able to construct new empirical formulas that appear to relate all fundamental fermion pole masses. The predicted masses are in excellent agreement with known experimental values and constraints for heavy quarks and neutrinos. For light quarks we predict speculative pole masses of the same order of magnitude as μ=1GeV MS masses but higher by a factor of ~1.5. The condition where k^12=3.5 (exact) is also considered as it would allow ultra high precision predictions.
