Fundamental Particles

  1. Apr 24, 2004 #1
    Perhaps this question has been addressed before, but, allow me to ask:

    What consitutes the classification of a "fundamental" particle?
    Does a fundamental particle have ANY half-life? Seems it would not.
    Is a fundamental particle completely impervious to destruction?

    Fundamental fermions do not decay, but "transform" one on another.
