Exceptional lie algebras at the very foundations of space and time
While describing the results of our recent work on exceptional Lie and Jordan algebras, so tightly intertwined in their connection with elementary particles, we will try to stimulate a critical
Next-to-minimal R-symmetric model: Dirac gaugino, Higgs mass and invisible width
We study a singlet extension of the minimal $U(1)_R$ symmetric model, which shares nice properties of Dirac gauginos and $R$-symmetric Higgs sector. At the same time, a superpotential coupling of
Exceptional Lie algebras, SU(3) and Jordan pairs: part 2. Zorn-type representations
A representation of the exceptional Lie algebras reflecting a simple unifying view, based on realizations in terms of Zorn-type matrices, is presented. The role of the underlying Jordan pair and
Trinification phenomenology and the structure of Higgs bosons
A bstractThe extension of the Standard Model to SU(3)L × SU(3)R × SU(3)C (the trinification group) augmented by the SO(3)G flavor group is considered. In our phenomenological treatment partly known
Generalized derivations and general relativity
We construct differential geometry (connection, curvature, etc.) based on generalized derivations of an algebra ${\cal A}$. Such a derivation, introduced by Bresar in 1991, is given by a linear
Unification and dark matter in a minimal scalar extension of the standard model
The six Higgs doublet model is a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM) that addresses dark matter and gauge coupling unification. Another Higgs doublet in the 5 representation of a discrete
