I would like to ask what is mean by conservation of lepton and baryon? Does this imply conservation of mass? In addition, does this theory contradicts mass-energy conversion E=mc^{2}?

The conservation of lepton and baryon is a fundamental principle in particle physics that states that the total number of leptons and baryons in a closed system remains constant over time.
This principle is important because it helps to explain and predict the behavior of subatomic particles and their interactions. It is also a fundamental aspect of the Standard Model of particle physics.
The conservation of lepton and baryon is related to the conservation of energy and momentum through Noether's theorem, which states that for every symmetry in a physical system, there is a corresponding conservation law. The conservation of lepton and baryon is a result of the symmetries in the laws of physics.
According to the Standard Model, the conservation of lepton and baryon is a fundamental principle and cannot be violated. However, there are some theories that suggest it may be possible under certain extreme conditions, such as in the early universe or in high-energy particle collisions.
The conservation of lepton and baryon is experimentally verified through a variety of techniques, such as particle accelerators and detectors. By measuring the number and properties of particles before and after interactions, scientists can confirm that the total number of leptons and baryons remains constant.
