Heavy Electrons in Cosmic Rays
Neddermeyer and Anderson1, on the basis of their experiments on the loss of energy by cosmic ray particles, have suggested that there are present in cosmic rays ‘new’ particles of mass greater than
Nature of the Nuclear Field
AN attempt to explain neutron-proton interaction made by Yukawa1 in 1935 has been brought to general notice2,3 in connexion with the new experimental evidence for the existence of a ‘heavy
Measurement of the Muon Lifetime
The only fundamental constituents of matter that are important for most of science are electrons, protons, and neutrons. It was thus a surprise when Carl D. Anderson and his student, Seth H.
The Discovery of the Muon and the Failed Revolution against Quantum Electrodynamics
When was the muon discovered? According to G. Bernardini, “the mu meson as a peculiar ionizing fraction of the bulk of cosmic rays was revealed by an experiment by Bothe and Kolhcrster in 1929.”’
Exclusive Scattering off the Deuteron
Exclusive processes are a special class of processes giving insight into the inner structure of hadrons. In this thesis we consider two exclusive processes and compute their total cross sections as
Particle physics models with four generations
In this thesis we consider extending the standard model of particle physics (SM) to include a fourth generation of elementary particles (SM4). The fourth generation would have to be sufficiently
Searches for Scharms and Gluinos with the ATLAS Detector
Following the extremely successful operation of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN during its first years of operation, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations announced the discovery of a new particle
Muon Physics : A Pillar of the Standard Model( Frontiers of Elementary Particle Physics, the Standard Model and Beyond)
Since its discovery in the 1930s, the muon has played an important role in our quest to understand the sub-atomic theory of matter. The muon was the first second-generation standard-model particle to
A Theory of the Muon; Explaining the Electron's Embarrassing Fat Cousin!
A theory of the muon is presented that explains the mass of the muon from a formula derived from the relativistic wave equations independently discovered by Lanczos, Weyl, and Van der Waarden using
