Another huge crack in the Standard Model

Post by Giorgio »

Another nail in the coffin of the Standard Model and the need of invoking "dark entities" to sustain its validity.

Results are now at 3.1 Sigma of precision, still far from the 5 Sigma needed to validate a new scientific discovery, but we are at level where there is only 0.1% of possibility that these results are an error.
I am curious to see how the alternative models will match with these results , but it is indeed time that scientific communities start to look into a better model to match all the discrepancies that we are finding.
This will have implications also on all the modelling that has been done until now in simulating plasma soups in a fusion process.

Enjoy it:

"Test of lepton universality in beauty-quark decays"
This article presents evidence for the breaking of lepton universality in beauty-quark decays, with a significance of 3.1 standard deviations, based on proton-proton collision data collected with the LHCb detector at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. The measurements are of processes in which a beauty meson transforms into a strange meson with the emission of either an electron and a positron, or a muon and an antimuon.
If confirmed by future measurements, this violation of lepton universality would imply physics beyond the Standard Model, such as a new fundamental interaction between quarks and leptons.

In addition to the above LHCb results, in these days FERMILAB announced that their investigations in Muon-g verification has indicated a discrepancy with the standard model predictions with a precision of 4.2 Sigma or roughly 0,001% chance of these measurements being an error.

Should these 2 experiments reach a 5 sigma precision it would need a complete rewriting of our understanding of subatomic particles.

Interesting times ahead.
