# The unfolded universe of elementary particles. A geometric explanation of the standard model structure

@article{Bennequin2016TheUU, title={The unfolded universe of elementary particles. A geometric explanation of the standard model structure}, author={Daniel Bennequin}, journal={arXiv: General Physics}, year={2016} }

We propose a geometric explanation of the standard model of Glashow, Weinberg and Salam for the known elementary particles. Our model is a generic Quantum Field Theory in dimension four, obtained by developing along a Lorentz sub-manifold the lagrangian of Einstein and Dirac in dimension twelve. The main mechanism which gives birth to the standard model is a certain gauge fixing of triality, which permits to identify the multiplicity of fermions, as seen from the four dimensional world, with…
