The Generation Model and the Origin of Mass

Robson, B A


The origin of mass in the standard model of particle physics is discussed and some difficulties pointed out. An alternative model, the generation model, will be shown to lead to a different concept of mass: the mass of a body arises from the energy stored in the motion of its constituents, so that if a particle has mass, then it is composite. It is suggested that gravity is a residual interaction arising from the incomplete cancellation of the super-strong color interactions, which bind the...[Show more]
