- I've just read that some researchers managed to split an electron into 2 separate particles, the holon and the spinon, also, doesn't quarks also only exist within solids and get anihilated when in free space?
- The idea was first described by Yoichiro Nambu and subsequently by Vladimir Miransky, Masaharu Tanabashi, and Koichi Yamawaki ( Is the t Quark Responsible for the Mass of W and Z Bosons ? ) and developed into a predictive framework, based upon the renormalization group, by William A . Bardeen, Christopher T . Hill, and Manfred Lindner in the article Minimal Dynamical Symmetry Breaking of the Standard Model.
