and the related problem of fermion families. Recently I have put forward a new idea, in which fermion and vector boson states are constructed from constituents ('tetrons'), which take the geometrical form of a tetrahedron or a cube. The model encodes all observed structures and phenomena of elementary particle physics in group theoretic items of the tetrahedral group which is isomorphic to the permutation group S4. Details of the model like symmetry breaking, distribution of charges and mass generation are worked out. pdf-files to download (ordered according to time):

Space and Family, my first paper on the subject, contains the main idea and a geometrical interpretation, which is still relevant at this time e.g. for inclusion of gravity. Spacetime is considered discrete at very small distances, with only permutation symmetry transformations remaining relevant. When a fermion tetrahedron moves through a gravitational field, the directions of its 4 tetrons are given by the 4-bein which defines the gravitational field at that point.

World of Tetrons contains a first approach to the formation of vector bosons from tetrons

Development of the Tetron Model

Some Remarks on the Tetron Spin Problem

The History of the Tetron Model (in german)

Tetron Model Building

Chirality and Symmetry Breaking in a discrete internal Space, Internal space is interpreted as a vibrating 'crystal' or 'molecule' with pyritohedral symmetry, quarks and leptons being the normal modes of the vibrations.

Color and Isospin Waves from Tetrahedral Shubnikov Groups, an important supplement of the previous paper, in which internal spin waves are considered.

A microscopic Interpretation of the SM Higgs Mechanism, an extension to include the whole Standard Model symmetry breaking in the model

A Microscopic Approach to Quark and Lepton Masses and Mixings, an attempt to calculate the mass spectrum of quark and leptons

Particle Physics and Cosmology in the Microscopic Model, the latest paper on the subject, a complete review which includes also an interpretation of gravity in the tetron model

Some Conclusions to be drawn from the Tetron Model concerning Cosmology and Fundamental Constants:
General Relativity from Elasticity of Tetron Bonds
Space and Time Dependence of Fundamental Constants
About the Value 1/137 of the Fine Structure Constant
... and here is the paper that summarizes the results: Dark Energy and the Time Dependence of Fundamental Particle Constants

Finally, I present my archives of how the tetron model has developed between 2007 and 2017, and in particular in the important years 2012, 2013 und 2014, and of how ich nahezu jeden Stein umgewendet habe, um den der Weisen zu finden:
2007 2008a 2008b 2009 2010 2011 2012/13 2013 2014a 2014b
2018 QCD and the tetron model
2018 fundamental tetron interactions
