Could the particles of the standard model be states of a smaller set of particles?


1 Answer 1


The linked questions asks:

What paper(s) or theory(s) describe or prove that the elementary particles that we have determined today cannot be made up of smaller more fundamental particles?

so it specifically includes theoretical evidence as well as experimental evidence.

    $\begingroup$ @CarlosGauss I see you've edited the question to say you're specifically interested in group theory reasons. That seems different enough from the original question to be useful so I've voted to reopen it. Note however that such theories do exist so the answer to our question is "yes". $\endgroup$ Oct 12, 2022 at 7:17
