That would knock many grand unified theories right off the table," Aviguone says.
She has also worked on supersymmetry, Standard Model observables, cosmological inflation, baryogenesis, grand unified theories, and aspects of string theory.
In a short time we should have direct confirmation, or otherwise, of the Grand Unified Theories when the first results from measurements of the lifetime of the proton are announced.
The method also helps physicists construct so-called grand unified theories, which attempt to unify the electroweak force with the strong force that binds particles within the nucleus.
Such models, including the so-called Grand Unified Theories, seek a common foundation for seemingly different forces of nature.
Often thought of as absolutely immutable, the proton might merely be extraordinarily long-lived, according to grand unified theories, which seek a common foundation for seemingly different forces of nature.
So-called grand unified theories, which mathematically tie together the electromagnetic, weak, and strong forces of nature, predict that magnetic monopoles--if they exist-- would be extremely heavy and move much more slowly than other subatomic particles.
So-called grand unified theories, which mathematically tie together the electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, predict that magnetic monopoles -- if they exist -- would have a large mass and move much more slowly than other subatomic particles.
Like other grand unified theories, the new scheme goes by its mathematical designation, SU(15), which describes the mathematical "group" that acts as a framework for the model.
Like other, previously studied grand unified theories, the new model predicts that matter is unstable and that protons eventually decay.
Grand Unified Theories are universally known as GUTs, and the opportunities are endless.
