Regge trajectory

Regge trajectory

[′reg·ə trə‚jek·trē]
(particle physics)
The path followed by a Regge pole in the complex angular momentum plane as the center-of-mass energy is varied.
The relationship between the spin and mass of a sequence of hadrons, with successive hadrons increasing by 2 in spin and also increasing in mass, but with the same values of other quantum numbers; the hadrons are thought to correspond to energies at which a Regge pole passes near positive integers (or half integers).

Thus the spin strong gravity connection that produces the correct proton radius and the correct weak angle, also gives a reason why quarks do not exist outside of particles and can produce the observed Regge trajectory like behavior.
to produce the Regge trajectory like behavior of quark particle masses suggesting the possibility that mass may be spin quantized.
A Regge trajectory like spin quantum number based quantization pattern is given by Ne'eman and Sijacki [3] where the particle's measured mass vary about the predicted points.
