While there are several reasons to believe that the Standard Model is These lectures provide a basic introduction to the Standard Model (SM) of particle. An important feature of the Standard Model (SM) is that “it works”: it is consistent . a free Dirac fermion, and add interactions, to construct the Standard Model.

The Standard Model of particle physics provides the most accurate The fundamental matter particles in the Standard Model are the quarks. The Standard Model summarizes the current knowledge in Particle Physics. It is the quantum theory that includes the theory of strong interactions (quantum. Beyond the Standard Model. A.N.

The right-handed neutrinos have to be sterile , meaning that they do not participate in any of the standard model interactions. Because they have no charges, the right-handed neutrinos can act as their own anti-particles, and have a Majorana mass term. Like the other Dirac masses in the standard model, the neutrino Dirac mass is expected to be generated through the Higgs mechanism, and is therefore unpredictable. The standard model fermion masses differ by many orders of magnitude; the Dirac neutrino mass has at least the same uncertainty.
On the other hand, the Majorana mass for the right-handed neutrinos does not arise from the Higgs mechanism, and is therefore expected to be tied to some energy scale of new physics beyond the standard model, for example the Planck scale.
The correction due to these suppressed processes effectively gives the left-handed neutrinos a mass that is inversely proportional to the right-handed Majorana mass, a mechanism known as the see-saw.
However, due to the uncertainty in the Dirac neutrino masses, the right-handed neutrino masses can lie anywhere.
For example, they could be as light as keV and be dark matter ,  they can have a mass in the LHC energy range   and lead to observable lepton number violation,  or they can be near the GUT scale, linking the right-handed neutrinos to the possibility of a grand unified theory.
Unlike the quark mixing, which is almost minimal, the mixing of the neutrinos appears to be almost maximal. This has led to various speculations of symmetries between the various generations that could explain the mixing patterns. These phases could potentially create a surplus of leptons over anti-leptons in the early universe, a process known as leptogenesis. This asymmetry could then at a later stage be converted in an excess of baryons over anti-baryons, and explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe.
Simulations of structure formation show that they are too hot—i. The simulations show that neutrinos can at best explain a few percent of the missing dark matter. However, the heavy sterile right-handed neutrinos are a possible candidate for a dark matter WIMP.
Preon models generally postulate some additional new particles which are further postulated to be able to combine to form the quarks and leptons of the standard model. One of the earliest preon models was the Rishon model.
Theories of everything[ edit ] Main article: Theory of everything Theoretical physics continues to strive toward a theory of everything, a theory that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and predicts the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle. In practical terms the immediate goal in this regard is to develop a theory which would unify the Standard Model with General Relativity in a theory of quantum gravity.
Additional features, such as overcoming conceptual flaws in either theory or accurate prediction of particle masses, would be desired. The challenges in putting together such a theory are not just conceptual - they include the experimental aspects of the very high energies needed to probe exotic realms. Several notable attempts in this direction are supersymmetry , string theory, and loop quantum gravity. Main article: String theory Extensions, revisions, replacements, and reorganizations of the Standard Model exist in attempt to correct for these and other issues.
String theory is one such reinvention, and many theoretical physicists think that such theories are the next theoretical step toward a true Theory of Everything. Theories of quantum gravity such as loop quantum gravity and others are thought by some to be promising candidates to the mathematical unification of quantum field theory and general relativity, requiring less drastic changes to existing theories.

Moreover, instead, the Standard Model is widely considered to be incompatible with the most successful theory of gravity to date, general relativity.
However, the standard model predicts that matter and antimatter should have been created in almost equal amounts if the initial conditions of the universe did not involve disproportionate matter relative to antimatter. Yet, no mechanism sufficient to explain this asymmetry exists in the Standard Model. Harris, C. These symmetries exchange fermionic particles with bosonic ones.
