Approaches to Fundamental Physics: An Assessment of Current by Ion-Olimpiu Stamatescu, Erhard Seiler

By Ion-Olimpiu Stamatescu, Erhard Seiler

This publication provides contributions on particle idea, quantum box thought, normal relativity, quantum gravity, string concept and cosmology. those signify the end result of diverse discussions, occurring one of the authors over a interval of numerous years, concerning the learn panorama of present-day primary theoretical physics. certainly, the consequent publication records their try, out in their respective and hugely really expert medical positions, to discover a manner of speaking approximately equipment, achievements and supplies of different methods which form the improvement of this box. it's hence additionally an try and elucidate the connections among those techniques, and current them no longer as disjoint ventures yet quite as points of a typical quest for realizing. Readers attracted to primary methods of theoretical physics will locate this publication hugely stimulating and enlightening.

Econophysics of Markets and Business Networks

Econophysicists have lately been particularly winning in modelling and analysing numerous monetary platforms like buying and selling, banking, inventory and different markets. The statistical behaviour of the underlying networks in those structures have additionally been pointed out and characterized lately. This ebook experiences the present econophysics researches within the constitution and functioning of those advanced monetary community structures.

This confinement behaviour should be a dynamical consequence of the Lagrangian, but up to now a one-milliondollar award for a proof of confinement is still waiting for a winner. Presently the problem can be tackled only in models or, numerically, in the lattice regularized version of QCD (see ‘Quantum Field Theory: Where We Are’ by K. ). We shall come back to this question in the discussion on the merits and deficiencies of the standard model. One consequence of confinement is the lack of a natural scheme to define the quark masses.

4 Incorporation of neutrino mixing will at least add nine new free parameters. 5 Extrapolation to the Near Future The purpose of this contribution is to give an account of the present experimentally well-established situation. G. Schmidt. An obvious way to reduce parameters is to embed the gauge groups of the standard model, that is SU (3) × SU (2) × U (1) into a simple group, for instance SU (5). In that case we have only one gauge coupling. Such a large symmetry is called a GUT (from grand unified theory) symmetry.

4. The most direct proof is the observation of a sizable flux of μ-neutrinos coming from the sun by the SNO collaboration. Since in the thermonuclear The Standard Model of Particle Physics 45 reactions on the sun only electron neutrinos are generated, this can be considered as direct proof of neutrino oscillations, especially as the total number of observed neutrinos, e together with μ-neutrinos, agrees very well with the prediction of the solar models. Since there are three different neutrinos, the mixing matrix is at least a three-by-three matrix, which is analogous to the CKM-matrix, except that it can contain two additional CP -violating phases.
