Predicted more than 50 years ago this last missing ingredient of the Standard Model offers an explanation for the origin of mass and electro-weak forces.
However, all attempts to achieve the Grand Unification Theory (GUT) of Strong and Electro-weak interactions have remained elusive so far.
It also possesses the capacity of whole information technology industry chain of planning and design, electro-weak integration, information technology, industrial automation and operation and maintenance.
He pays tribute to the lattice calculations using supercomputers that are widely applied to quantum chromodynamics and some aspects of the electro-weak theory, but proposes and elaborates other analytical methods that can obtain possible values for the main physical parameters that define the corresponding theories.
In 1973, one of the predictions of electro-weak unification theory proposed by Prof.
In this model, the concept of quark generation and electro-weak charge values are connected with (and interpreted as) the discrete symmetries of icosahedron geometry at its 12 vertices.
of Torino), the June 2007 course "Strangeness and Spin in Fundamental Physics" at the "Enrico Fermi" International School of Physics (sponsored by the Societa Italiana di Fisica) dealt with recent discoveries concerning the quantum numbers of strangeness and spin, which both relate to basic properties of the fundamental quantum field theories describing strong and electro-weak interactions and their phenomenological applications and which, in instances like the partonic spin structure of the proton, are sometimes deeply correlated.
