Indianapolis, Indiana-August 26, 2019 -- A new theory for the interactions that hold matter. Eshel Faraggi, an IUPUI physicist, proposed over the weekend a new way to understand how mass and the nucleus of atoms are made. The basic idea is that electric charge accounts for mass and holds together the proton, neutron, and nuclear structure of matter. The new approach does not require the strong nuclear force to act against the electric repulsion of the protons in the nucleus of atoms, which was the original motivation for inventing the strong force almost 100 years ago. Instead, a steady quantum state of the quarks under electromagnetism accounts for stability on the nuclear scale. The fundamental physics behind this approach is the Heisenberg uncertainty principal. The new theory is supported by a self consistent representation of the fundamental particles. It is anticipated that this revolutionary idea will be controversial and considered suspicious by many in the scientific community. More studies: experimental, phenomenological, and theoretical, will be required to better understand its validity and implications. The self-consistency and simplicity of the approach, and its ability to quantitatively reproduce the observable nucleons and nuclei suggest that in the future, the strong force may go the way of the ether and become an idea of the past. A report detailing the findings is attached to this release.
