Main Question or Discussion Point
Is there a fundamental particle (like a Planck black hole) that has a finite radius?
Particles without any apparent internal structure. Quarks, electrons, etc..I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a fundamental particle
Maybe Quarks and Electrons are built from particles to small to be detected yet, sorta of like a planet compare to a single Atom is size or is it finally over?jhmar said:Particles without any apparent internal structure. Quarks, electrons, etc
This the QT view, particle physics give figures for the electron radius and atomic nuclei radii. Therefore they must have internal structure, its the old take your choice atitude.
If there was, it would be know as a Quantum Mono Wave?Loren Booda said:Is there a fundamental particle (like a Planck black hole) that has a finite radius?
What do you mean by that?kublai said:QT treats particles as wavy perturbations in a field of said particles, therefore no finite bounds, think fuzzy. Since QT is a nondeterministic, probablistic theory it could not allow for discrete, finite particles. The days are gone where particles were little round, hard balls. sigh
