Standard Model Fermions and N=8 supergravity

  author={Krzysztof A. Meissner and Hermann Nicolai},
  journal={Physical Review D},
In a scheme originally proposed by M. Gell-Mann, and subsequently shown to be realized at the SU(3)xU(1) stationary point of maximal gauged SO(8) supergravity by N. Warner and one of the present authors, the 48 spin 1/2 fermions of the theory remaining after the removal of eight Goldstinos can be identified with the 48 quarks and leptons (including right-chiral neutrinos) of the Standard Model, provided one identifies the residual SU(3) with the diagonal subgroup of the color group SU(3)_c and… Expand
Standard model fermions and K (E10)
Abstract In recent work [1] it was shown how to rectify Gell-Mann's proposal for identifying the 48 quarks and leptons of the Standard Model with the 48 spin- 1 2 fermions of maximal SO(8) gaugedExpand
Standard Model Fermions and Infinite-Dimensional R Symmetries.
This proposal relies in an essential way on embedding the SU(8) R symmetry of N=8 supergravity into the (infinite-dimensional) "maximal compact" subgroup K(E_{10}) of the conjectured maximal duality symmetry E_{10}. Expand

Abstract A considerable amount of the standard model's three-generation structure can be realised from just the 8 C -dimensional algebra of the complex octonions. Indeed, it is a little-known factExpand
Conformal standard model and inflation
This thesis presents a possible inflation scenario as a consequence of non-minimal gravitational couplings in the Conformal Standard Model. That model consists, in comparison to the SM, of additionalExpand
