Standard Model Mathematical Representation

  1. Sep 17, 2012 #1
    Hello, everyone. I understand the Standard Model and all of its quarks, leptons and bosons, but could someone show me the equation and simply explain it? I haven't been able to find it or an explanation of how it relates to the graphical representation of the Standard Model. Thanks in advance!

    I doubt that.

    You need quantum field theory to "see" the particles and their interaction in the Standard Model lagrangian ("the equation"). Judging from your question, you probably do not have the required knowledge, so you can only accept that it can be done.

    Attached is the standard model Lagrangian. As for a simple explanation well...

    Thanks, it'd make for a great t-shirt!
