As well-known, according to the present understanding, there are four fundamental interactions or forces: gravitational, electromagnetic, weak and strong interaction.
Presenting a striking contrast to the above is that it is able to account for a few problems, derived from the QCD and other existing theories, in the quantum mechanics described with the complex-sedenions, trying to improve the unification theory relevant to the four fundamental interactions to a certain extent.
These preliminary considerations feed the idea of implementing a model of fundamental interactions based on a appropriate mechanism of transport of matter/energy, sufficiently general to be suitably extended from sub-nuclear to infinite range interactions.

"Our goal is to try to understand the fundamental interactions between fluid mechanics and chemistry in turbulent combustion," says Jacqueline H.
The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying these fundamental interactions, however, are largely unknown.

Under construction on campus and operated by MSU, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security and industry.
The more general question that arises at this point is therefore: do eqs (1,1) provide themselves any hint also about the physical essence of the fundamental interactions? The standard model [8-11] provides a satisfactory description of the fundamental forces of nature.

Present data shows no deviation from the Standard Model of fundamental interactions, explains Binetruy (physics, U.
They will be obtained by extending a successful description of p+p to heavy ion reactions and vice versa.the answer to these questions will either clarify the long-standing problem how collectivity emerges from fundamental interactions, or it will necessitate qualitative changes to our interpretation of collective phenomena in p+p and/or heavy ion collisions.the pi is in a unique position to accomplish this goal, as she has spent her entire career working on different aspects of p+p and heavy ion collisions.
