Beauty Baryons and Neutrinos as Dark Matter
National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20899 U.S.A.
Beauty baryons and neutrinos are possibly the components of dark matter according to the model of strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions of elementary particles (the SWEEP model). In this model elementary particles are composed of only three basic particles: the pion, the neutrino, and the archyon or beauty baryon. All interactions are mediated by the pion field, so neutrinos and archyons in a region of space devoid of pions are subject only to gravitational interactions. Electromagnetic fields interacting only with the gravitational field may also exist as dark energy in such a region. The SWEEP model and the underlying relativistic quantum mechanics are reviewed briefly.
