This is part one of a three-part interview with the author of a cosmological theory called extended Standard Model, or xSM.
European amateur theoretical physicist Stig Sundman states that a simple particle model, which he has dubbed the 'extended Standard Model,' can explain why and how our present universe came to be and how it evolved over its billions of years of existence.
Mr. Sundman earned a Masters of Science degree through the Department of Engineering Physics at Helsinki University of Technology. There, Stig became interested in elementary particle physics, with his 1966 thesis titled 'Weak interaction and the hypothesis about a conserved vector current.'
The August 10, 2009 iTWire.com article 'Predictive Cosmology: Creation's secret revealed in muon-electron mass ratio = 206.768 283' went into detail about the three forces of nature that govern the microscopic world of elementary particles: electromagnetic, strong, and weak.
Stig Sundman claims that his theory explains both the cause and the purpose of these forces and presents as evidence a precisely computed theoretical value of the muon-electron mass ratio '” a ratio that has been generally regarded as theoretically incalculable.
Based on his papers and the iTWire article, Stig answers a series of questions about his theory as posed to him by iTWire science writer William Atkins. Some highlights of this first-of-three-part interview are:
'¢ A description of the initial stages of the universe.
'¢ The far-reaching consequences within xSM of the conservation laws of both energy and momentum.
'¢ The crucial role that the 'pressureless momentum equation' plays within xSM.
'¢ Additional predictions and explanations resulting from the xSM theory.
Please note: For people interested in discussing Stig's ideas in more detail, please email William Atkins at william.atkins 'at' itwire.com and he will relay the information to Mr. Sundman.
