Reflections on the Future of Particle Theory

Authors: Ervin Goldfain
Comments: 50 pages

Quantum Field Theory (QFT) lies at the foundation of the Standard Model for particle physics (SM) and is built in compliance with a number of postulates called consistency conditions. The remarkable success of SM can be traced back to a unitary, local, renormalizable, gauge invariant and anomaly-free formulation of QFT. Experimental observations of recent years suggest that developing the theory beyond SM may require a careful revision of conceptual foundations of QFT. As it is known, QFT describes interaction of stable or quasi-stable fields whose evolution is deterministic and time-reversible. By contrast, behavior of strongly coupled fields or dynamics in the Terascale sector is prone to become unstable and chaotic. Nonrenormalizable interactions are likely to proliferate and prevent full cancellation of ultraviolet divergences. A specific signature of this transient regime is the onset of long-range dynamic correlations in space-time, the emergence of strange attractors in phase space and transition from smooth to fractal topology. Our focus here is the impact of fractal topology on physics unfolding above the electroweak scale. Arguments are given for perturbative renormalization of field theory on fractal space-time, breaking of discrete symmetries, hierarchical generation of particle masses and couplings as well as the potential for highly unusual phases of matter which are ultra-weakly coupled to SM. A surprising implication of this approach is that classical gravity emerges as a dual description of field theory on fractal space-time.

The Higgs Boson and the Weak Force IVBs: Part V

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 10 Pages.

The IVBs (Intermediate Vector Bosons) are the field vectors (force carriers) of the weak force. The IVBs reconstitute (or revisit) the very energy dense, early metric of spacetime (during the "Big Bang"), and their mass is the probable consequence of the binding energy necessary to condense, compact, and/or convolute the spacetime metric to a particular symmetric energy state, defined by a specific force-unification era (such as the Electroweak Era, for instance), with a specific energy density and temperature. Originally, the "W" IVBs were indistinguishable from the early dense metric of which they were a part - the energy level of electroweak unification. The "Electroweak Era" (EW) existed from 10(-12) to 10(-35) seconds after the Big Bang, when collision energy exceeded 100 GEV and the temperature exceeded 10(15) Kelvins. During this time (a tiny fraction of a second in human terms) the whole of spacetime - the whole Cosmos - was in effect a single huge "W" IVB within which all the transitions of "identity" within the lepton family of particles (including the heavy leptons), and all the transitions of "flavor" within the quark family of particles (including quarks of the heavy baryons or "hyperons"), could take place freely without restriction or energy barriers (during the EW Era, quark and lepton families were unified among themselves, but quarks remained separate from leptons.) (See: Brian Greene: "The Fabric of the Cosmos", page 270, Knopf, 2004.)

Introduction to the Higgs Boson Papers

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 15 Pages.

Although I had heard about, read about, and wondered about the "Higgs boson" for years, I simply couldn't get a "feel" for this particle, mostly because I was unable to place it within any overall, coherent scheme of physical phenomena. I didn't want to believe in its reality, but I hadn't wanted to believe in the reality of the "W" and "Z" IVBs, either. Having eaten a large serving of humble pie with the discovery of these particles in the early 1980s at CERN, I was not eager for second helpings from the Higgs, so I kept searching for its conservation role. What finally broke the impasse for me was the article by Gordon Kane in Scientific American (and there is much else in this article I don't agree with), which mentioned there could be more than one Higgs boson. (See: "The Mysteries of Mass" by Gordon Kane, Scientific American , July 2005, pp. 41-48.) That idea allowed me almost immediately to "do my thing", which is the construction of General Systems hierarchies, using the "phase transition" energy levels, or force- unification symmetric energy states, as benchmarks for the four sequential steps of a weak force decay "cascade" from the "Multiverse" to "ground state" atomic matter in our universe, with one step allotted to each of the four forces as they joined (or separated from) the unification hierarchy, and one Higgs boson identifying each unified-force energy plateau. (See: "Table of the Higgs Cascade".) (On July 4, 2012, CERN announced the tentative discovery of a massive, Higgs-like boson, at 126 GEV on the LHC at Geneva, Switzerland.)

Nonlinear Theory of Elementary Particles: 5.the Electron and Positron Equations (Linear Approach)

Authors: Alexander G. Kyriakos
Comments: 18 pages.

The purpose of this chapter is to describe the mechanism of generation of massive fermions - electron and positron. The presented below theory describes the electron and positron mass production by means of breakdown of massive intermediate boson without the presence of Higgs's boson. It is shown that nonlinearity is critical for the appearance of fermions' currents and masses. Here is considered only the linear form of equations. The analysis of nonlinear forms will be making in the following chapter.

The Economical Expression of the Muon-, Neutron-, and Proton-Electron Mass Ratios

Authors: J. S. Markovitch
Comments: 6 pages

It is demonstrated that the proton-, neutron-, and muon-electron mass ratios may be expressed precisely and economically with the aid of two constants that derive from twin approximations of the fine structure constant.
