    • Supersymmetric preon models with gauged colour-flavour symmetry

      We have conducted a search for globally supersymmetric preon models with gauged colour-flavour symmetries. Theories with both two- and three-preon composites, and colour-flavour groups from E6 down to the standard model, are examined under the following conditions: asymptotically-free metacolour, anomaly-free gauged symmetries, and Pauli principle obeyed. It is found that there are no models with three or more supersymmetric families. If supersymmetry is broken, one model with four families emerges. The purely fermionic preon theories can also be considered as the light sector of a chiral supersymmetric theory, with supersymmetry breaking at the preon level.

    • From two mesons and (V-A) weak currents to the standard model of quark and lepton interactions

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      This retrospective paper traces the conceptual evolution of two theories in which the author was involved—the two-meson theory (with H A Bethe) in 1947 and the universal (V-A) theory of weak interactions (with E C G Sudarshan) in 1957—into the present-day standard model of particle interactions. Part 1 is entitled ‘From the pion to QCD and pseudo-Goldstone bosons” and Part 2 “From the muon and neutrino to QFD and chiral anomalies’.
