Those modifications, made in light of then-newer information on photon mass energy-absorption coefficients [13], on electron mass electronic (collision) stopping powers [14], [15], and on humidity corrections to air-ionization-chamber results [16], are given in Table 1.
Another interesting hypothesis could relate proton to electron mass ratio with fine structure constant and the number [2.
According to Muller's standard model, we can express the electron mass as a proton resonance and the proton mass as an electron resonance:
e] is the bare electron mass, e and v' are the electron charge and velocity, respectively; r' is a distance between electron and proton.
