Item description for Power of (Alpha): Electron Elementary Particle Generation With (Alpha)-quantized Lifetimes And by Malcolm H. MacGregor...
This book is centered on the most pressing unsolved problem in elementary particle physics the mass generation of particles. It contains physics that is not included in the Standard Model as it is now formulated, while at the same time being in conformity with the major results of the Standard Model, i.e. isotopic spins and interactions. It differs from the Standard Model in the treatment of masses and pseudoscalar mesons, and in the role assigned to the coupling constant . Presented in a careful and phenomenological way, the material can easily be followed by all physicists, both experimental and theoretical, and also by interested workers in other fields. The author s website 70mev.org gives additional information about the applications of the constant ? in particle physics.

One of the most important books of the decade Mar 7, 2010
Once upon a time, in the wake of Francis Bacon, science was all about learning from experience, from empirical data. True scientists really relish puzzles, and do not hesitate to get deep into the patterns which nature provides to us, and try to understand them. To the extent that people try to do real science, even now, in the world of physics other than gravity, this book is of central importance to the next big step forwards. The world of strong nuclear interactions is not understood at a fundamental level in the same detailed way that quantum electrodynamics is (though even there there are very important fundaemtal issues still in play). This really came home to me a few years ago, when I read The Skyrme Model by Makhankov, Ryubakov and Sanyuk (Springer 1994), which really laid out the huge gap between the airy theoretical world of quantum chromodynamics and the empirical world of "low energy" phenomena like nuclear explosions and laser fusion. ("They are closely related if you accept the approximation that 3 equals infinity.") To really come to terms in a fundamental way with what's going on in these nuclear interactions, we should not really be assuming on faith that our first guess from forty years ago, grounded in a small sliver of the experimental data, MUST be the whole story. (Tycho Brahe was much more of a true scientist than some of the superepicyclestring writers of today.) We really need to come to terms with what's really out there. This book spells out what is really out there, in a very big part of the empirical data -- as fascinating and important a mystery now as the spectral lines of atoms were in the days before quantum mechanics. Of course, Palazzi and others have also done very important work rounding out our understanding of these patterns. Still, I would feel a lot better if we could go ahead and develop more cost-effective access to space, so that we could do more of the really dicey experiments out there instead of down here. As one oblique but important example -- really big lasers for laser fusion might well be cheaper to build out there than down here, if we do justice to the transportation problem. Free vacuum, no need for building permits and no need to fight gravity.
