The sub-atomic particles may be arranged as a series of square matrices. These may be called "particle matrices". Each particle matrix is a different size. The force carriers form the "core" of a matrix and the quarks or leptons (including anti-matter) form concentric square rings surrounding the bosons. The particle matrices may be stacked vertically with the core of each matrix aligned vertically. This arrangement is called "The Periodic Stack of Particles". This is a 3D representation of particle families. The location of a particle within the set of particle matrices may be defined using a set of quantum numbers. The quantum numbers for any particle may not be associated with any of it's physical properties. The quantum numbers which determine the location of a particle within the stack may be arranged as a "quantum matrix". A "Particle Number" (P) may be used to identify any sub-atomic particle. This is similar in concept to using an atomic number (Z) to represent a chemical element. The particle number is derived from the quantum numbers associated with a particle. Some particle numbers associate with particles as follows; P = 5 represents the up quark P = 15 represents the anti-top quark P = 31 represents the electron P = 37 represents a photon P = 49 represents a positron For further information and a display of the matrices please see; http://www.geocities.com/chemguy777/ Please refer to sections 32, 33, and 34.
