ConclusionIn conclusion, as of 1984 January, it may be stated that the existence of super-heavy monopoles and the phenomenon of nucleon decay, both of which are extremely important from the point of view of grand unification theories, are still very open questions. While there has been just one magnetic monopole candidate so far, there have been several as far as nucleon decay is concerned. The first candidates for nucleon decay came from the fine-grain calorimeters of KGF, and NUSEX; recently… 
Atomic Genetics and Origin of the Universe- Volume-3
The most talked hypothesis in physics is unification physics. It is being believed that before origin of the universe , four natural forces  which are mediated by four different particles (gluons,

The Lorentz invariant Dirac equation upon which our deepest understanding of the most fundamental Quantum Mechanics is based — exhibits perfect discrete symmetries of Charge Conjugation C ð Þ ,
Virtual black holes from the generalized uncertainty principle and proton decay
We investigate the formation of virtual black holes in the context of the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), as a mediator for a proton decay process which is forbidden by the standard model.
Practical Matter-Wave Antiballistic Defense Shield Technologies
This chapter is a review of the various principles required for implementing matter-wave defense shield technologies rather than a complete engineering manual.
`Shut The Front Door!':. Obviating the Challenge of Large-Scale Extra Dimensions and Psychophysical Bridging
This paper delineates a simple, inexpensive experimental design to ‘crack the so-called cosmic egg’ thereby opening the door to largescale extra dimensions (LSXD) tantamount to the regime of the unified field and thus awareness and constitutes a massive paradigm shift to Unified Field Theory.
Classifying the Computational Power of Stochastic Physical Oracles
Consider a computability and complexity theory in which the classical set-theoretic oracle to a Turing machine is replaced by a physical process, and oracle queries return measurements of physical

Investments on the capital market depends on the current political situation of the country, as well as on the movements of the global economy. In countries with unstable political situation, the


Neutrino backgrounds in the Kolar Gold Field nucleon decay experiment
The neutrino events recorded in the Kolar Gold Field Nucleon Decay detector are analysed here. It is shown that there is good agreement between the observations and the estimates based on the
Results from a new search for proton decay
The authors have searched for the decay of protons and neutrons bound in nuclei using Soudan 1, a 31.5-metric-ton iron-loaded concrete tracking calorimeter, instrumented with 3456 proportional tubes.
The early universe and high‐energy physics
15 billion years ago, an experiment was carried out that related to the interaction between cosmology and particle physics and the unification of physics in general. This is the experiment that we
Is Baryon Number Conserved
We suggest that baryon-number conservation may not be absolute and that an integrally charged quark may disintegrate into two leptons and an antilepton with a coupling strength GBmp2≲10−9. On the

Review of Future Nucleon Decay Experiments
At a time when the first results are becoming available from the IMB Water Chenenkov, the Kolar Gold Field and the Mont Blanc tracking calorimeters, it is appropriate to review the status and
Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field
The steady progress of physics requires for its theoretical formulation a mathematics that gets continually more advanced. This is only natural and to be expected. What, however, was not expected by
Upper limit on flux of cosmic-ray monopoles obtained with a three-loop superconductive detector
A three-loop superconductive monopole detector has been continuously operated for over 150 days. Its sensing area is 476 cm/sup 2/ (71 cm/sup 2/ loop area and 405 cm/sup 2/ near-miss area) for double
The K.G.F. Nucleon Decay Experiment
A 140 ton nucleon decay detector is in operation in the Kolar Gold Mines in India at a depth of 2300 metres since November 1980. The experimental details, the method of analysis and the results
