On a Dual Standard Model

Conference paper
Part of the CRM Series in Mathematical Physics book series (CRM)


I describe various aspects of the construction of a dual standard model including how it may be possible to obtain the charge spectrum, the family structure, and spin of the known matter particles. I summarize the encouraging features of the model, the open problems, and the predictions indicated at this stage.
