Unified field theories act to merge the internal symmetries of the standard model into a single group. Here we lay out something different. That is, instead of aiming to unify the internal symmetries, we demonstrate a sense in which the group transformations may be unified with the quarks and leptons that they act on. Similarly, the (3+1) Lorentz transformations may be united with the scalars, spinors, four-vectors and field strength tensors that they act on. These simplifications occur because… Expand

Charge quantization from a number operator
Abstract We explain how an unexpected algebraic structure, the division algebras, can be seen to underlie a generation of quarks and leptons. From this new vantage point, electrons and quarks areExpand

Evidently the fact that the observable universe is dominated by matter at the expense of anti-matter is considered a major unsolved problem. Using the mathematical modeling based on the algebra T :=Expand

Developing an approach defined in previous papers a correspondence between elementary particles and elements of a particular set of directed graphs said "glyphs" is made explicit. These can, in turn,Expand
Hyperquaternions: A New Tool for Physics
A hyperquaternion formulation of Clifford algebras in n dimensions is presented. The hyperquaternion algebra is defined as a tensor product of quaternion algebras $$\mathbb {H}$$H (or a subalgebraExpand

We argue that quaternions form a natural language for the description of quantum-mechanical wave functions with spin. We use the quaternionic spinor formalism which is in one-to-one correspondenceExpand
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 inExpand
Ontological-Phase Topological Field Theory
We thank Newton for inspiring strict adherence to hypotheses non-fingo, and claim reasonable a posteriori surety in positing the need for an Ontological-Phase Topological Field Theory (OPTFT) as theExpand

Hermitian Jordan Triple Systems, the Standard Model plus Gravity, and Alpha = 1/137.03608
A physical interpretation is given for some Hermitian Jordan triple systems (HJTS) that were recently discussed by Gunaydin (hep-th/9301050). Quadratic Jordan algebras derived from HJTS provide aExpand
The Octonions
The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. While somewhat neglected due to their nonassociativity, they stand at the crossroads of many interesting fields of mathematics.Expand
Dimensional Reduction
Using an octonionic formalism, we introduce a new mechanism for reducing 10 spacetime dimensions to 4 without compactification. Applying this mechanism to the free, 10-dimensional, massless (momentumExpand
Quark structure and octonions
The octonion (Cayley) algebra is studied in a split basis by means of a formalism that brings outs its quarkstructure. The groups SO(8), SO(7), and G 2 are represented by octonions as well as by 8 ×Expand
Quaternionic Spin
We rewrite the standard 4-dimensional Dirac equation in terms of quaternionic 2-component spinors, leading to a formalism which treats both massive and massless particles on an equal footing. TheExpand
Octonionic representations of GL(8,R) and GL(4,C)
Octonionic algebra being nonassociative is difficult to manipulate. We introduce left/right octonionic barred operators which enable us to reproduce the associative GL(8,R) group. Extracting theExpand
