Introduction

This is a brief look at the ideas behind the search for a Particle Periodic Table (PPT.) It includes an overview of the Pastures software package, the results so far and what is left to do in phases I, II and III.

Mr.I.J.Good of Virginia Polytechnic, wrote a letter to Nature, which included a model, not much better and not much worse than mine. The letter communicated two ideas. That any model could be used with particle pair mass ratios, including mine. That to prove the model, it is only necessary to find the definitive particle periodic table. Thereby the still unknown structures of sub-atomic particles, including mesons, baryons and leptons are found.

To aid this search, the Particle Structure Results program Pastures, was written, in Fortran 77. It is a research tool package, which includes a ready-to-run program, full documentation, particle data files, program source code in listing format and a worked example, to produce the Outlandish PPT. Each table can be identified, by the Electron Mass in Photons, which in this case is 227879226. The largest particle used has a mass 20,000 times larger than the electron, so double precision accuracy has to be used, to a maximum of nine thousand million million photons.

Only one result has been produced so far; the Outlandish one. This is not the definitive PPT. There are only 10 structures used and the particle mass error margin in MeV has been drastically reduced, in most cases, from the actual experimental collider results. A new Review of Particle Properties is due out in July 1998, but it is not expected that this will provide the answer to the drastic action.
The large table Outlandish PPT, has been supplemented, by deck of cards, card file and structure type order versions. Type order is the smallest version. With the deck of cards and card file versions being easier to read.

One thing in favour of the Outlandish PPT; it has all the desirable properties of a PPT. Some of these are;-
1. It has a unique equation for 44 particles.
2. It distinguishes between groups of up to three particles, which the Review treats as one particle.
3. It uses integer mass photon numbers, even if somewhat large.
4. It produces a very large particle pair mass ratio, which is without units, since unit divided by unit equals one.

Point 4 means that we can dispense with relativity, quantum mechanics, big bangs and black holes. A true return to Classical Particles of old. Only belt and bracers physics is needed.

Outstanding work for phase I is as follows;-
1. Find matches for more than 44 particle.
2. Find a match for type 9 (III 8 IV 18.)
3. Find a match for the Proton (938.27231 MeV.)

Phase II involves 48 structures, with the mathematical technology in place, but 38 problems for mathematicians still outstanding. An existing finished program called Moisture, needs to be updated with these structures, by some programmers.

Phase III involves 600 structures, with some innovative mathematics still outstanding.

Particle Model

This is not mainstream, such as the Standard Model, but is fringe science with only one supporter. It is a table tennis ball, with a pattern on it. The pattern is symmetrical to polyhedron models of the Platonic and Archimedian Solids, their duals and stellations thereof. With this symmetry, the dimensions of each particle are fixed, mass can be calculated and a classification system imposed. There is, however, one weak link, the counting system used for each polygon is taken to be directly proportional to its pattern on the sphere. In fact it is taken to be exact.

Three Equations

III An equilateral triangle has a mass of sumation N, which is equal to (N times N + N)/2, where N=1,2,3,... This is collapsed lattice counting, where mass = 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21,...
VI A six sided regular polygon has a mass of 1 + 6 times (N times N + N)/2, where mass = 7, 19, 37, 61, 91, 127,...
IV Given a square of sides N, it has a mass of N times int(2 times N/sqrt(3)) - int(N/sqrt(3)), where N=8, 9, 10,... For N=1, 2, 3,...,7 mass = N times N. The main series has mass = 68, 85, 105,..
All 10 structures in phase I are combinations of these three equations.
