Virtual black holes from the generalized uncertainty principle and proton decay

  title={Virtual black holes from the generalized uncertainty principle and proton decay},
  author={Salwa M. Alsaleh and A. Al-Modlej and A. Ali},
We investigate the formation of virtual black holes in the context of generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), as a mediator for a proton decay process which is forbidden by the standard model. Then, we calculate the lower bounds of the GUP deformation parameter by the experimental bound on the half life of the proton.
