The 'Smart Dreamcatcher' (SD) Physical Particle Model

I. Day-dreams of the Hermit

  • András Juhász private


In this part we introduce the „Smart Dreamcacher” (SD) network, a visualization of hardly interacting elementary particle structures. The SD-network is a geometrical structure (3-uniform hypergraph) which allows a comprehensible explanation of quantitative characteristics of hadron particles at the level of elaboration by physics of 1970’s – 80’s.
The elementary particles correspond to special walks on the network in this representation. The SD-network itself implicates the laws and features of subatomic particles and the numeric values of their charges as a necessarily true unity explainable even for juniors.
The didactic explanation and the „References” section containing of animated Youtube videos, offer linkage to the world of physics for followers of different tends and orientations.
