Part 4 (seminar)

Why do we have three families of quarks and leptons in nature ? It is very fascinating if the quarks and leptons are composite states of more fundamental preons. I will show a very interesting approach based on supersymmetry to answer to the above fundamental question. You will see that exceptional groups play an important role.

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
