Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

82 Scopus citations


A truly unified model of the basic gauge interactions, except for gravity, based on the exceptional group E8 is proposed. The fundamental fields belong to the smallest possible single representations for each spin. In addition to accounting for the three "observed" SU(5) families, this Letter predicts the existence of three more conjugate SU(5) families below 1 TeV.
