The Double Simplex:

Envisioning Particles & Interactions

Chris Quigg · DESY· 12 July 2004


The double simplex envisioning particles interactions

Wolfgang Pauli on the Downfall of Parity:


What would the world be like if the

What would the world be like, if the

gauge symmetry were unbroken?

Consider the effects of all the

gauge fields.


Mass terms connect lh rh fermions

Mass terms connect LH & RH fermions


Basis of the double simplex

Basis of the double simplex:

  • Lepton number as 4th color

B – L along vertical

LH, RH decorations at vertices


Mendele ev didn t know about noble gases

Mendele’ev didn’t know about noble gases


The double simplex envisioning particles interactions

Are quarks and leptons elementary?

What relationship of quarks to leptons?

Right-handed weak interactions?

New quarks and leptons?

New interactions linking quarks, leptons?

What relationship of LH & RH particles?

Nature of the right-handed neutrino?

Nature of the mysterious new force that hides electroweak symmetry?


The double simplex envisioning particles interactions

Are there different kinds of matter?

Are there new forces of a novel kind?

What do generations mean? How many?

Which quarks go with which leptons?

Is there a family symmetry?

What makes a top quark a top quark, and an electron an electron?

What is the (grand) unifying symmetry?

What hides it?
