# Mass Dimension One Fermions

@article{Ahluwalia2019MassDO, title={Mass Dimension One Fermions}, author={Dharam Vir Ahluwalia}, journal={Mass Dimension One Fermions}, year={2019} }

In 2005, Dharam Ahluwalia and Daniel Grumiller reported an unexpected theoretical discovery of mass dimension one fermions. These are an entirely new class of spin one half particles, and because of their mass dimensionality mismatch with the standard model fermions they are a first-principle dark matter candidate. Written by one of the physicists involved in the discovery, this is the first book to outline the discovery of mass dimension one fermions. Using a foundation of Lorentz algebra it…
