The Standard Model of Particle Physics

The Standard Model of Particle Physics is a remarkable model that describes almost everything in Particle Physics. A very good summary of it is given by Wikipedia. You can get it by just typing The Standard Model on Google. I make the reservation that it does not need to accomodate dark matter because as it is shown in the paper A new model without dark matter for the rotation of spiral galaxies: the connections among shape, kinematics and evolution, found in this site,  dark matter does not exist at all in spiral galaxies and as it is well known it does not exist in elliptical galaxies, and thus, it simply does not exist, period. The list of achievements of the Standard Model is extremely long and can be found on the web.

A deeper view on the Standard Model is found in many books on Particle Physics. A quite profound analysis of the Standard Model is found in the paper The Standard Model: Alchemy and Astrology by J. D. Lykken (arXiv:hep-ph/0609274v1). Beyond the weaknesses of the Standard Model found in this article I add the following ones:  THE PROTON SPIN PUZZLE, THE EMC EFFECT, THE DISTRIBUTIONS OF ELECTRIC CHARGES INSIDE THE NUCLEONS as found by Robert Hofstadter in 1956 and Gerald Miller in 2007, and THE AD HOC CKM MATRIX ELEMENTS.
