Description

In this talk, we will discuss, in basic terms, how the existence of extra dimensions of spacetime could help clarify some of the particle physics puzzles of today:

  • the origin of symmetries
  • the hierarchy problem
  • charge quantization
  • dark matter
  • the masses of elementary particles.

This discussion is just for fun since there is no empirical evidence of extra-dimensions, so they probably do not exist. Pero… ¿y si sí?
