Koide's Formula Follows from Nonlinear Dynamics of Quantum Fields

Authors: Ervin Goldfain
Comments: 2 pages

In this brief report we argue that Koide's formula arises from universal attributes of nonlinear dynamics in field theory. Feigenbaum scaling not only provides a natural paradigm for generating particle masses and coupling charges, but also a basis for understanding the family structure of fermions.

Running of Electromagnetic and Strong Coupling Constants

Authors: R. Wayte
Comments: 10 pages

The observed variation of the electromagnetic coupling constant α, seen in high energy e+e- → e+e- collisions, has been explained in terms of work done compressing the energetic electron. A simple monotonic law has been found, which describes how the electron tries to resist compression, without transmutation. Variation of the strong coupling constant αs has also been analysed in terms of effective work done compressing the gluon field within a proton's component parts.

The Fine Structure Constant and the Quark and Lepton Mixing Angles

Authors: J. S. Markovitch
Comments: 23 pages

The fine structure constant and the quark and lepton mixing angles are shown to arise naturally in the course of altering the symmetry of two algebraic identities. Specifically, the symmetry of the identity x2 = x2 is "broken" by making the substitution xnxn - yp on its left side, and the substitution xx - z on its right side, where p equals the order of the identity; these substitutions convert the above identity into the equation x2 - y2 = (x - z)2. These same substitutions are also applied to the only slightly more complicated identity (x/a)3 + x2 = (x/a)3 + x2 to produce this second equation (x3 - y3) / a3 + x2 - y3 = (x - z)3 / a3 + (x - z)2. These two equations are then shown to share a mathematical property relating to dz/dy, where, on the second equation's left side, this property helps define the special case (x3 - y3) / a3 + x2 - y3 = (103 - 0.13) / 33 + 102 - 0.13 = 137.036, an equation which incorporates a value close to the experimental fine structure constant inverse. Moreover, on the second equation's right side, this same special case simultaneously produces values for the sines squared of the mixing angles. Specifically, the sines squared of the leptonic angles φ12, φ23, and φ13 appear as 0.3, 0.5, and not larger than roughly 1/30 000, respectively; and the sines squared of the quark mixing angles θ12 and θ13 appear as 0.05, and close to 1/90 000, respectively. Despite closely mirroring so many experimental values, including the precisely-known fine structure constant, the above mathematical model requires no free parameters adjusted to fit experiment.

Symmetrically Reproducing Quark and Lepton Mass, Charge, and Generation

Authors: J. S. Markovitch
Comments: 4 pages

It is shown that a particle set possessing electric charges, masses, and weak couplings that coincide with those of the quarks and leptons can be produced with the aid of the symmetry of the cuboctahedron. Specifically, it is shown that small powers of 4.1, in combination with the constants 0.1 and 3, are useful in economically reproducing the quark and lepton masses, and that these small powers-and thereby the masses they represent-can be joined automatically with their correct values for charge and generation with the aid of cuboctahedral symmetry.

The Mass of the Higgs Boson Should be Zero

Authors: John Michael Williams
Comments: 3 pages

If the Higgs boson does mediate a vacuum coupling which gives all particles mass, then it should not itself be massive.
