Project Title

Fundamental Particles as Probes of Quantum Gravity

Project Summary

The statement, "there are problems incorporating quantum mechanics into general relativity" is necessarily based upon the use of an approximation technique because exact calculations are too difficult. It could well be that the standard approximation technique is giving wildly incorrect results. In that case quantum mechanics and general relativity would be perfectly compatible but one could only see it using a better approximation technique. It is proposed to develop such a technique and to apply it to realizing the old dream of computing fundamental particle masses from the energy contained in their force fields.
