A New Map of All the Particles and Forces

A New Map of All the Particles and Forces

This is an interesting new way to look at the standard model of particle physics that re-arranges things to better illustrate how different particles relate to each other.

The current diagram to present the standard model is below, this just shows the normal matter. I have one that shows anti matter too. In some ways this follows a similar layout to the periodic table

As an intermediate, diagram I actually like this diagram

standard model

Both the above diagrams are sourced from [1].

The new model called the 'double simple model' does look far more complex. However it has far more detail and better illustrates the relationship and interactions between the different forces / particles. You can view this at [1], while the paper describing how the team came up with this is at [2].

I have printed this, so it is something to discuss at the next STEM group meeting on the 12th March.

I think the paper at [2] has been around for a while, so this article is more on the Quanta Magazine article.

Muon g-2 experiment finds strong evidence for new physics

Just sharing this video posted by Fermilab to dioide.zone on Peertube. This is a really nice, beginner friendly explanation.

The first results from the Muon g-2 experiment hosted at Fermilab show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. Announced on April 7, 2021, these results confirm and strengthen the findings of an earlier experiment of the same name performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Combined, the two results show strong evidence that our best theoretical model of the subatomic world is incomplete. One potential explanation would be the existence of undiscovered particles or forces. This video explains what a muon is, how the Muon g-2 experiment works, and the significance of this result.
