This is fine for WIMPs heavier than 20 times the electron mass. For WIMPs less than about 20 times the mass of the electron, however, there appears to be a problem arising from the electron binding.
These parameters under consideration in the present study include the ion & electron mass ratio, [m.sub.i]/[m.sub.p], their temperature ratio, [T.sub.e0]/[T.sub.i0], electron relative speed ([[xi].sub.V], as well as the initial speeds of plasma fluids along x, [U.sub.x0].
where m is the electron mass at zero temperature and [delta]m(T = 0) represents the radiative corrections from a vacuum and [delta]m(T) are the contributions from the thermal background at nonzero temperature T.
Note that, in (6), the first term is the bare electron mass, [m.sub.e], and the second term corresponds to the expected electron energy contribution to the mass operator, whereas the third term is the nontrivial virial contribution to the gravitational mass operator.

l = h / mc = 10 -13 cm should have rest mass 275 times larger than that of electron mass. The name mesotron was given to this exchange particle.
Here, [sigma] is the neutron spin; [m.sub.e] is the electron mass, [E.sub.e], [E.sub.v], [p.sub.e], and [p.sub.v] are the energies and momenta of the electron and neutrino, respectively; and [G.sub.F] is Fermi constant of weak interaction (obtained from the [mu]-decay rate).
That's still just one-third of the speed of electrons in graphene, but in principle the electron mass can be further reduced - and their speed increased - if different metals are used to coat the silicon, he added.
Figure 2 illustrates the calculated branch ing ratio as a function of [E.sub.[gamma],min] expressed in units of the electron mass. This leads to a value for the energy range 35 keV < [E.sub.[gamma]] < 100 keV of about 0.1%.
Therefore, the rest mass of the fundamental oscillator can be even smaller than the electron mass. Consequently, all elementary particles can be interpreted as eigenstates in a chain system of harmonic quantum oscillators, in which the rest mass of each single oscillator goes to zero.
