# Weak interaction and the mechanisms for neutron stability and decay

@article{Pons2011WeakIA, title={Weak interaction and the mechanisms for neutron stability and decay}, author={Dirk J Pons and Arion Pons and Aiden J. Pons}, journal={Applied Physics research}, year={2011}, volume={7}, pages={1} }

Purpose – The decay of the neutron is well known from the perspective of empirical quantification, but the ontological explanations are lacking for why the neutron should be stable within the nucleus and unstable outside. A theory is developed to explain the reasons for decay of the free neutron and stability of the bonded neutron. Method – The Cordus theory, a type of non-local hidden-variable (NLHV) design, provided the mathematical formalism of the principles for manipulating discrete forces…

The order of the quantum chromodynamics transition predicted by the standard model of particle physics

- PhysicsNature

Finite-size scaling analysis shows that the finite-temperature QCD transition in the hot early Universe was not a real phase transition, but an analytic crossover (involving a rapid change, as opposed to a jump, as the temperature varied).
