In the general framework of reductionism, we expect our findings to have fundamental bearing on our understanding of SBTs revealing predictive tell-tale signatures of critical events of relevance in areas beyond many-body condensed matter physics, in elementary particle physics, primordial cosmological events and tipping points in nonlinear systems.
Perhaps it is not quite an exaggeration to remark here that most subsequent developments in both elementary particle physics and also hadron physics were advanced by YangMills' effort to generalize the gauge invariance [8].
In either version of the theory, the laws that govern elementary particle physics require that the boundary branes be flat as a pancake before they collide and that they stay that way afterwards.
