Vertical-Horizontal Flavor Grand Unification

  • Kameshwar C. Wali
Part of the Lie Groups: History, Frontiers and Applications book series (LGR, volume 11)


This will be a very brief report on the work in progress in collaboration with Aharon Davidson. The problem of the replication of the fermionic generations and the basics of flavor dynamics have received a great deal of attention recently. As we heard from Georgi,1 there are no satisfactory answers.
