Researchers from IIP-UFRN propose new vision for limitations of the standard model

Published Tue, Sep 29, 2020
Described as an elementary particle similar to the electron, with an electric charge -1 and a spin of 1⁄2, but with a much larger mass, the muon is the subject of several studies that try to improve our understanding of the standard model of physics. An anomaly linked to this particle, the...
