So, what about the Standard Model?

It is now possible to state that the Standard Model is a gauge theory invariant under  symmetry group given by the direct product of the symmetry group of the strong interaction, , with that of electroweak interaction, which also contains the symmetry group of electromagnetic interaction . The general form involving these fields is where: indicate leptons … Continue reading So, what about the Standard Model?

Particles and forces

Beyond the force that holds us back in bed in the morning, there are other four fundamental forces, in Nature. At the present state of our knowledge, Nature is presented as the result of the composition of the four fundamental interactions (electromagnetic, weak, strong and gravitational) with a set of elementary particles which can be classified according … Continue reading Particles and forces
