As I reported in an earlier post, two weeks ago seven physicists announced the observation of a new light boson of mass 38 MeV at the Nuclotron particle accelerator in Dubna, near Moscow. The new boson, named the E(38), is not predicted by the Standard Model of the strong and electroweak interactions, and if the observation is confirmed, it will be the first discovery of an elementary particle not predicted by the Standard Model, since the Standard Model became established in the 1970's.

In an article published on arXiv today, seven physicists have reported the observation of an unexpected new light boson, named the E(38), at the Nuclotron superconducting particle accelerator at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, near Moscow. A boson is a particle whose wave function returns to its original value when rotated through 360°, and the presently known elementary particles which are bosons are the photon, the gluons which bind quarks and other gluons together into protons, neutrons, and atomic nuclei, the W and Z vector bosons that transmit the weak nuclear force, the recently discovered Higgs boson candidate, and the graviton.

This is the second part of a ten-part post on the foundation of our understanding of high energy physics, which is Richard Feynman's functional integral.

Hello, and welcome to this new blog. I am Chris Austin, I work independently on high energy physics theory, in Maryport on the north-west coast of England.

With regard to the title of the blog, may I first apologize to Lewis Carroll for the take-off.
