Particle Physics

Subatomic particles can be divided into material fermions, and the energy-like bosons.

Fermions

The fundamental particle making up all fermions is the darill. These combine to make the four generations of quarks and the corresponding four generations of leptons.

Each generation shows the +⅔ charged quark1, its -⅓ counterpart, and the corresponding lepton2 family.

  • I: up unique / down dream / electron e
  • II: centre charm / sprial strange / muon μ
  • III: top truth / bottom beauty / tau τ
  • IV: left love / right rhyme / yaon я

1 Both the prosaic and poetic names of the quarks are included.

2 Each lepton generation consists of the basic particle with charge 1, and a neutrino with charge 0.

Every fermion has an antiparticle of the opposite charge.
