Models for elementary particle masses
2004 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

We want to understand how the elementary particles, the fermions, receive their masses. The so-called Standard Model of contemporary particle physics does not explain which mass a fermion should get, why the fermions receive different masses and why the elementary particles are devided into three families, or generations. We start by looking into how the masses are generated in the Standard Model, continue with how other models explain how the fermions get their masses and finally we suggest our own model. In our model it is clear why the different elementary particles, the neutrinos, the charged leptons and the quarks, have different masses. We also have some tentative explanations as to why the fermions fall into three families.
