An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything

A. Garrett Lisi

31 pages, 7 figures

(Submitted on 6 Nov 2007)

"All fields of the standard model and gravity are unified as an E8 principal bundle connection. A non-compact real form of the E8 Lie algebra has G2 and F4 subalgebras which break down to strong su(3), electroweak su(2) x u(1), gravitational so(3,1), the frame-Higgs, and three generations of fermions related by triality. The interactions and dynamics of these 1-form and Grassmann valued parts of an E8 superconnection are described by the curvature and action over a four dimensional base manifold."

This paper is visually a treat.

Too bad i can't print it out in color.

=========UPDATE==============

In post #7 here, Christine tells us that Bee has a discussion of quantum E8 theory at her blog:
