### A Preon Model from Manasson's Theory

**Authors:** Fabrizio Vassallo

**Comments:** 9 pages.

V. Manasson has applied dissipative chaos theory to particle physics,
deriving a simple relation between the fine structure constant and
Feigenbaum delta constant. It is presented a preon model based on
Manasson's theory. The model is intended as a naive toy one, as it makes
use of unjustified assumptions, as e.g. the possibility of the existence of
neither fermionic nor bosonic particles in 3+1 spacetime.

### Solving the Fermion Flavor Problem using Renormalization Group Flow

**Authors:** Ervin Goldfain

**Comments:** 12 pages. This is a sequel to a paper published in Communications in Nonlinear Science and
Numerical Simulation 13 (2008) 1845-1850.

A long-standing puzzle of the current Standard Model for particle physics is that both leptons and quarks
arise in replicated patterns. Our work suggests that the number of fermion flavors may be directly derived
from the dynamics of Renormalization Group (RG) equations. Specifically, we argue that the number of
flavors results from demanding stability of the RG flow about its fixed-point solution.

### A Scalar-Energy Field That Predicts the Mass of The Electron-Neutrino

**Authors:** Michael Harney

**Comments:** 5 pages.

Using Wolff's model of spherical-wave centers, a scalar energy field is derived
between rest-energy of a particle and potential energy of a hypothetical space fabric. The
simple formula of mc^{2} = .5kx^{2} that results reveals a different elasticity constant k for each
particle, and based on the knowledge of electro-weak unification which requires the
constants k for the electron and neutrino to be the same, a mass for the electron-neutrino
is predicted to be 0.065 eV.
