Origin of mass 

The Standard Model of particle physics is the most successful quantum theory of our Universe. There are different flavours of quarks and leptons whose masses are hierarchical and apparently free parameters of the theory.   Moreover, there is a  bizarre mixing among different flavour  of quarks as well as among different flavours of neutral leptons (neutrinos) whose origin is still unknown.  In short, we need to understand the origin of mass of the matter of our Universe.  This is called the  Flavour Problem of  the Standard Model.

We have proposed new and original ideas to solve the Flavour problem of the Standard Model, and continuously exploring these ideas at experimental frontiers.  The related research articles are:

Applications are invited for one post of Junior Research Assistant to work on the UP CST sponsored project sanctioned with sanction letter No. CST/D-1301, dated 01-09-2022, entitled “A new paradigm for flavour problem” sanctioned for three years. The post is purely temporary and coterminous with the project.  Please write to for more details.  The deadline is 05-10-2022.

Our group members are Vartika Singh, Neelam Singh and Rishabh Singh Sisodia who are working particularly on the flavour aspects of the Standard Model,  and on a broad range of particle theory including QCD and beyond the standard model physics.
