I was wondering if Higgs theory offers an explanation for why the Koide formula gives such precise masses for the leptons? I would assume that any theory of mass would be able to predict the masses of particles, especially for ones where precise relations have been found between them like the leptons.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
