Icosahedral Supersymmetry

Full Text PDF


The Exceptional Lie Algebra E6 used by the Author as a basis forthe Standard Model of the Elementary Particles is a subalgebra of the Lie algebra E8 which in turn is the Lie algebra of the icosahedral group by the McKay correspondence. It is possible to introduce a mass proportional toan entropy given by the the number of permutations of the elements of E6, E8 labeled by the Weyl group W. In this way the masses of the top-quark pair uu and electron are derived without any appeal to QCD and a mass of approximately 19 TeV is predicted for supersymmetric particles.
