Elementary Particles and Emergent Phase Space by Piotr Żenczykowski

By Piotr Żenczykowski

The commonplace version of uncomplicated debris, even supposing very profitable, includes quite a few components which are installed via hand. knowing their foundation calls for going past the version and looking out for “new physics”. the current booklet elaborates on one specific idea touching on such physics. whereas the unique perception is 50 years outdated, it has no longer misplaced its attraction over the years. Its simple inspiration is that area — an area of occasions taken care of within the typical version as a classical heritage — is an idea which emerges from a strictly discrete quantum layer within the restrict of enormous quantum numbers.

This ebook discusses an extension of this view through exchanging area with part house. It combines the result of the author's study papers and areas them in a lot broader philosophical and phenomenological contexts, hence offering extra arguments in desire of the proposed replacement. The ebook could be of curiosity to the philosophically-minded readers who're prepared to consider unorthodox principles at the very nature of the world.
