Recently I have managed to understand some basics of the Standard Model and even have written some note about it (see http://arxiv.org/abs/math.DG/0605709" [Broken]). The quark masses there are matrix quantities. Two tripples of quarks (the upper row - one from each generation and the lower row - one from each generation) have matix masses. I. e. the masses of 6 quarks are given by two 3x3 matrices. How such a matrix mass correlates with the famous Einsteins's formula E=mc^2. Especially its non-diagonal elements? I think this question is worth to discus here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
