The Minimal Length Scale

... A NUCLEAR accelerator designed to replicate the Big Bang is under investigation by international physicists because of fears that it might cause ’perturbations of the universe’ that could destroy the Earth. One theory even suggests that it could create a black hole. ...

Some of these have been crudely tested already. I anticipate that in future work many more will be. In Item 189 Raj ...

... Colour in QCD The theory of the strong interaction, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), is very similar to QED but with 3 conserved “colour” charges In QED: • the electron carries one unit of charge • the anti-electron carries one unit of anti-charge • the force is mediated by a massless “gauge boson” – ...

... Particles are represented by fields. What is meant by this? → Discuss below! QFT’s are commonly formulated in so-called natural units featuring ~ = c = 1. → Mass, Energy, momentum, inverse time and length scales have the same physical dimension, known as mass dimension: [m] = [E ] = [p] = [t −1 ] = ...
