Proton Neutron

Interests and propositions

1) Particle Physics

1.1) Compositeness of quarks and solutions of some intriguing problems in Particle Physics

I am interested in Physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) and I am the author of an alternative model to the SM in which quarks are composite particles. This model is different from the other ones found in the literature because, according to this model leptons are not composite particles, and each quark is composed of two prequarks (preons), called primons by me to differentiate the model from the previous models. My model is described in the  paper The Higgs-like bosons and quark compositeness, found in the section Selected Publications. According to this model the SM Higgs boson does not exist and the mass of  each quark in a hadron is generated by the interaction between  each pair of primons. The model, actually, has its origin in the distributions of electric charges found  by R. Hofstadter in 1956, and agrees well with the results of Gerald Miller who found a negative charge of (-1/3)e inside the positive core of the neutron.  The model solves also the so-called proton spin puzzle and paves the way for the understanding of the CKM matrix.

1.2) Hadron Spectroscopy

I am interested in baryon and meson spectroscopies. You find some papers on these subjects in the section Selected Publications.

1.3) Neutrino Physics

It is well known that neutrinos are quite elusive particles. In 2015 I intend to write a couple of papers on the solar neutrino problem proposing a completely new idea which solves the matter.

2) Astrophysics

2.1) Spiral Galaxies

I have recently published a paper on the formation of the spiral arms of spiral galaxies. Danvar’s logarithmic spiral is deduced for the first time from the old and good Newtonian Mechanics. The paper demonstrates the absence of dark matter in spiral galaxies. It was presented at the APS April Meeting 2013 in Denver, CO, USA. To see the paper go to the link


2.2) Fine Structure Constant

Some researchers have proposed that the fine structure constant may vary with time. Their conclusion is based on observations of absorption lines of distant quasars. I oppose this view and have another explanation for the phenomenon as described in paper 8 in the section Selected Publications.
