The Future of Elementary Particle Physics

- 1979

We live in interesting times. We have a theory, at last, of strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions. Many new accelerators are ahuilding to test our theory.

Universality of the basic interactions

- Physics
- 1974

Abstract We propose the unification of weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions within a gauge theory based on the chiral group of elementary fermions (quarks and leptons). Several consequences,… Expand

Unified gauge theories and the gravitational cut-off

- Physics
- 1977

Assuming that gravitation acts as a universal cut-off for strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions, some consequences are studied for a class of unified gauge theories using the renormalisation… Expand

The unification of physics

- Physics
- 1980

The strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions are described as different manifestations of a grand unified gauge theory. Candidates of unified theories based e.g. on the groups SU(5) and S0(10)… Expand

From superconductors and four-manifolds to weak interactions

- Physics
- 2007

The goal of this article is to describe the concept of “gauge symmetry breaking” and its applications to superconductors, four-manifold theory, and particle physics.

Symmetry and emergence

- Physics
- 2018

In a modern understanding of particle physics, global symmetries are approximate and gauge symmetries may be emergent. This view, which has echoes in condensed-matter physics, is supported by a… Expand

Unified Interactions of Leptons and Quarks

- Physics
- 1978

Since about 1970 a rather definite theoretical picture of the world of particle physics has emerged. This picture can be characterized by the following main aspects.

Unity of elementary particles and forces in higher dimensions.

- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2003

A model in which a unification of all the gauge and Yukawa forces as well as the gauge, Higgs, and fermionic matter particles is achieved in the framework of quantum field theory is presented. Expand

Heavy elementary fermions and proton stability in unified theories

- Physics
- 1975

Abstract The construction of renormalizable unified theories of the strong, electromagnetic and weak interactions requires the existence of thus far unobserved elementary fermions. Their properties… Expand

Supersymmetry, Supergravity and Particle Physics

- Physics
- 1984

We give a short introduction to N = 1 supersymmetry and supergravity and review the attempts to construct models in which the breakdown scale of the weak interactions is related to supersymmetry… Expand
