       Motivation for Majorana Neutrinos from Special Empirical Hierarchies

In Part A, the core idea behind the space-times-time invariance as gravity was detailed. When one treats events as a 4-vector, the contraction of that 4-vector generates one number. When one treats events as quaternions, the square of a quaternion generates 4 numbers. If for two observers, the first number in the square is identical while the other three (I call space-times-time) are different, then the two observers are moving at a constant velocity relative to each other. The space-times-time proposal is exploring the case where the observers disagree about the interval, but have the same space-times-time.

The challenge of providing Ph.D. students in Physics with an overview of statistical methods and concepts useful for data analysis in just three hours of lectures is definitely a serious one, so I decided to take it as I got invited to the "Indian Summer School" in the pleasant lakeside town of Traunkirchen, Austria. 

In this blog, I will again define the space-times-time invariance proposal using simple graphics, an explanation intended for a wider audience, videos, and information for nerds. It is taken directly from my own web site that has nearly exactly the same information. In Part B, the equations of motion will be derived, something technical people would reasonably ask for.


An Overview

Category theory is a branch of mathematics which attempts a formalization in terms of simple elements and associations between them. A rather abstract construction, indeed, and certainly one above my head (I am an experimentalist, for god's sake!).

Nuclear Glue

The nucleus of an atom is made up of protons and neutrons.  Both have about the same weight although protons have a positive charge and neutrons have no charge (they are neutral).  Like charges such as protons produce a repulsive force against each other.  This then begs the question, what holds the nucleus together then if these positively charged protons are all pushing each other away while being crammed into the nucleus together?

Just a short post to remind anybody who has successfully completed a master in scientific disciplines that there is a chance to do research with the CMS experiment at CERN, earning a PhD in Physics or Statistics and becoming expert with Statistical Learning techniques, while being paid a salary much higher than mine.
        The SM neutrino hierarchies are special
This morning I received a copy of the book "WHAT NEXT ? White Paper of CSN1", a publication of the Italian INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics) addressing the question of what awaits us after the Higgs discovery, and what projects should be supported in the long-term future of HEP.
The book is the result of one year of work by many colleagues who have actively participated in four working groups and one task force, producing some preliminary studies of the discovery potential of this or that machine, and of the most important questions that need to be answered -and the projects that appear more suited to answer them. Editors of the work are Franco Bedeschi, Roberto Tenchini, and John Walsh.

The working groups were thus titled:

I was at the ICNFP 2015 Conference, spending two nights to prepare updated versions of two posters following an idea that I had on August 22 just before taking the plane for Crete (the possible space-time contradiction between the preonic vacuum and the macroscopic world, leading to Quantum Mechanics for standard matter), when an important result was posted to arXiv.org .
