We demonstrate a model which captures certain attractive features of SU(5) theory, while providing a possible escape from proton decay. In this paper we show how ladder operators arise from the division algebras R , C , H , and O . From the SU(n) symmetry of these ladder operators, we then demonstrate a model which has much structural similarity to Georgi and Glashow's SU(5) grand unified theory. However, in this case, the transitions leading to proton decay are expected to be blocked, given… 
Three generations, two unbroken gauge symmetries, and one eight-dimensional algebra
Are octonions necessary to the Standard Model?
There have been a number of claims, going back to the 1970s, that the Standard Model of particle physics, based on fermions and antifermions, might be derived from an octonion algebra. The emergence
The Standard Model gauge symmetries and particle content from the minimal ideals of two Clifford algebras
Building upon previous works, it is shown that two minimal left ideals of the complex Clifford algebra $\mathbb{C}\ell(6)$ and two minimal right ideals of $\mathbb{C}\ell(4)$ transform as one

Trace dynamics, and a ground state in spontaneous quantum gravity
We have recently proposed a Lagrangian in trace dynamics, to describe a possible unification of gravity, Yang-Mills fields, and fermions, at the Planck scale. This Lagrangian for the unified entity
Exceptional Quantum Algebra for the Standard Model of Particle Physics
The exceptional euclidean Jordan algebra of 3x3 hermitian octonionic matrices, appears to be tailor made for the internal space of the three generations of quarks and leptons. The maximal rank
The Topological Origin of Quantum Randomness
The mathematical formalism involved in the argument based on virtual Dehn twists and torus splitting is non-trivial, and the resulting haptic model is so simple that it might be suitable for undergraduate courses and maybe even for High school classes.
Octonions, Exceptional Jordan Algebra and The Role of The Group $$F_4$$F4 in Particle Physics
Normed division rings are reviewed in the more general framework of composition algebras that include the split (indefinite metric) case. The Jordan–von Neumann–Wigner classification of finite
Octonions in Particle Physics through Structures of Generalised Proper Time
In considering the nature of the basic mathematical structures appropriate for describing the fundamental elements of particle physics a significant role for the octonions, as an extension from the
Multiperiod structure of electroweak phase transition in the 3-3-1-1 model
The electroweak phase transition (EWPT) is considered in the framework of 3-3-1-1 model for Dark Matter. The phase structure within three or two periods is approximated for the theory with many


The Algebra of Grand Unified Theories
The Standard Model is the best tested and most widely accepted theory of elementary particles we have today. It may seem complicated and arbitrary, but it has hidden patterns that are revealed by the

Generations: three prints, in colour
A bstractWe point out a somewhat mysterious appearance of SUc(3) representations, which exhibit the behaviour of three full generations of standard model particles. These representations are found in
Flipped SU(5) string vacua classification: A variation of the SO(10) breaking basis vector
In this paper, an extension of the classification of flipped SU(5) heterotic-string vacua from Faraggi, Rizos and Sonmez [Nucl. Phys. B886, 202 (2014)] with a variation of the SO(10) breaking α basis
