Accepted for Publication: Why Baryons Are Yang-Mills Magnetic Monopoles!

I am very pleased to report that the paper linked below, “Why Baryons Are Yang-Mills Magnetic Monopoles,” has been accepted for publication in Number 4, Volume 35, 2012 pp 401-468 of the Hadronic Journal.  This is due to be released in early January, 2013.

Why Baryons Are Yang-Mills Magnetic Monopoles Final for Publication

As you can see from elsewhere in this blog and in my various newsgroup posts, I have been advocating since 2005, the view that protons and neutrons and other baryons are Yang-Mills magnetic monopoles.  In this paper, I have finally developed the empirical proof, by predicting nuclear binding energies between such monopoles which accord with empirical binding data within a fraction of a percent, and by explaining how the nuclear binding energies relate to the energies which confine quarks within their respective nucleons.

If you want to start somewhere other than at the beginning, go to page 61 where you will see how I derive the up and down quark masses to six digit in MeV accuracy based on the electron rest mass and the deuteron binding energy, and where I show a predicted maximum available binding energy for ^56Fe of 493.028394 MeV.  The empirical data show that this nucleus has an empirical binding energy of 492.253892 MeV, which means that ^56Fe utilizes 99.8429093% of the energy predicted to be available, for actual binding.  The remaining 0.16% is used to continue to confine quarks within the nucleons that comprise ^56Fe, and this utilization of available binding energy is the maximum among all of the known nuclei, and sets the boundary between fusion and fission physics.

I believe that this will become big news as this work gains exposure and people begin to see what problems have been solved here.

Happy holidays to all!




  1. Your entire posting, “Accepted for Publication: Why Baryons Are Yang-Mills Magnetic Monopoles!
