A Theorem Producing the Fine Structure Constant Inverse and the Quark and Lepton Mixing Angles

Authors: J. S. Markovitch
Comments: 4 Pages.

The value 137.036, a close approximation of the fine structure constant inverse, is shown to occur naturally in connection with a theorem employing a pair of related functions. It is also shown that the formula producing this approximation contains terms expressible using the sines squared of the experimental quark and lepton mixing angles, implying an underlying relationship between these constants. This formula places the imprecisely measured neutrino mixing angle θ13 at close to 8.09°, so that sin22θ13 ≈ 0.0777.

The W + Z = T Gauge Boson and Top Quark Experimental Mass and Energy Equality

Authors: Malcolm H. Mac Gregor
Comments: 15 pages, including 6 displays of experimental data systematics

Experimentally, the sum of the W and Z gauge boson masses is equal to the top quark t mass, to an accuracy of better than 1%. This unexpected mass relationship has no Standard Model explanation. It can be related to a precision mass equality in Fermilab and CERN proton-antiproton collision experiments, and to an empirical mass relation between the top-quark and the electron that ties together the lightest and heaviest particle states to 0.1% accuracy. These results, which do not appear to be accidental, can be used as a guide in classifying high-energy particle states. Since these relationships are between different types of particle states, they logically involve the particle energies E = mc^2 rather than their masses, since energies represent a universal property that is essentially independent of particle types and quantum numbers. Particle energies E are proportional to particle inertial masses m. The Standard Model quark energies correspond to constituent-quark masses. The experimental mass/energy relationships mentioned here can be fitted into a comprehensive particle generation formalism based on factor-of-137 kinetic-energy-to-particle-energy transformations in related boson, fermion and gauge boson energy production channels.

Exploring Terrestial Flux of Hypothetical Stable Micro Black Holes Produced in Particle Colliders Relative to Natural Cosmic Ray Exposure

Authors: Thomas B Kerwick
Comments: 4 Pages.

Although studies into the relation between the effects of hypothetical stable TeV-scale black holes produced in particle colliders relative to those which may be produced in nature due to cosmic ray (CR) collisions have already been conducted in some detail [1] this short paper re-explores the relationship between the two. Herein the same figures of CR flux and the planned number of collisions over the lifetime of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are used to determine a comparison between the two, though different results are concluded due to account taken to some less-considered differences between sub-Keplerian phenomena (<11.186km/s) and faster phenomena which would evade gravity capture. The relative flux and the consequential effects of such stable MBH are considered herein due to recently published research [2] which disputes the effectiveness of Hawking Radiation (HR) in the widely anticipated (though sometimes challenged [5][6][7]) evaporation of any such phenomena.

Disproof of Antimatter Antigravity

Authors: Kelly Loum
Comments: 1 page. See copyright notice in document

There has been much discussion, planning, and experimentation concerning the possibility that antimatter may be repelled by the gravity field of matter, and vice versa. This short paper dispels that myth.

The Short-Range or "Particle" Forces: Part II (Weak Force)

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 8 Pages. Original paper split in two parts due to excessive length.

@@The strong force is responsible for the binding of compound atomic nuclei and the binding of quarks in the class of heavy composite particles, the hadrons. Hadrons consist of baryons (containing 3 quarks) and mesons (containing quark-antiquark pairs). The weak force is responsible for the creation, destruction, and transformation of single, unpaired elementary particles (quarks and leptons). Both forces are to be understood in terms of energy, charge, and especially symmetry conservation. The strong force conserves whole quantum units of charge and achieves "least bound energy" nuclear configurations; the weak force ensures the invariance of all conserved parameters in elementary particles during the creation, destruction, or transformation of single, unpaired particles.

LHC 2012 Beyond Moriond: Hunt for Multi-Higgs

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr
Comments: 15 Pages.

Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg (quoted in New Scientist 7 March 2012) said: "One Higgs would be very sad ... If all we see at the LHC is one Higgs, it's not going to help us ... see clearly what the road ahead is ...” ...”. My view of the data from Tevatron and LHC presented at Moriond (7 Mar 2012 and (in version 2 of this paper) 11 Mar 2012) is that Steven Weinberg should be Very Happy. Instead of a single Standard Model Higgs at 125 GeV, I think the data indicates the following phenomena: 125 GeV - pion-type meson T0 (low-mass Tquark-antiUpquark); 126.5 GeV - pion-type meson T0c (low-mass Tquark-antiCharmquark); 136 GeV - SM Higgs (low state of 3-state Higgs); 195 GeV - SM Higgs (middle state of 3-state Higgs); 244 GeV - SM Higgs state near Higgs VEV (high state of 3-state Higgs). Matt Strassler in his 6 Dec 2011 guest post on Cosmic Variance proposed a flow chart for two phases in the LHC Hunt for Higgs: Phase 1 being Search for a Single Standard Model Higgs; Phase 2 including Search for 2 or more Higgs. My view is that Phase 1 has failed to clearly find a Single Standard Model Higgs so that the LHC should now in 2012 begin the Phase 2 Hunt for Multi-Higgs. Version 2 incorporates material from 11 Mar 2012 Moriond presentations. (References are included in the body of the paper and in linked material.)

A Soliton Model for Electric and Magnetic Charge

Authors: Paul J. Werbos
Comments: 2 Pages.

Many theorists in grand unification physics, empirical nuclear physics and other areas have had considerable interest in “soliton” models of particles as extended objects in space, starting from classical field theories. Perhaps the most famous are the Skyrme model ,and the Bogomolnyi-Prasada-Sommerfield (BPS) monopoles in a classical model field theory developed by ‘tHooft, Polyakov, Jackiw, Rebbi and others. But these models achieve stability (or near-stability) by exploiting a single topological charge, commonly interpreted as magnetic charge, which does not capture the complexity of what we see in nature. This brief note provides an example of a new type of classical field theory which would appear to allow two topological charges, left-handed and right-handed, with a closer link to the standard model of physics.
