Hello fellow physicsforumists.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently looking at the standard model and one of the key ingridients is to rotate the gauge eigenstates to the mass eigenstates by a transformation acting on their family index. The problem is that I can't really see what we are doing.

The mass eigenstates are such that the massterm coefficients matrices are diagonal. But how do we define gauge eigenstates to begin with?

Please, if you have the energy to write some word about this I would be thankful.

Best Regards

Kontilera
