Dear Professor Sheldon Glashow,

I am writing this email to let you know of my criticism on your theory of the Standard Model. Once we have corresponded similar emails, but you have stopped your response.

I believe this is a quite serious criticism that you should answer as a responsible scholar and author of the theory. I have corresponded many other researchers in this field but nobody came up with a single reasonable refutation against my argument. If I am misleading the public, then I believe you should be the one to correct me.

Here I also include your collegues, whom I welcome to join our discussion. Please forgive me if you find this email inappropriate.

You may find the preprint "Lorentz violation of the Standard Model"
(http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/hep-ph/0502142)
and more information on my homepage http://www.jcyoon.com and news group sci.physics.research such as

In this paper, I have investigated whether the unification of the Standard Model is rigorous enough to claim as a fundamental nature of nature.

Here is the outline of preprint.

1. No massive particle can be described by only one of left- and right-handed "chirality" fermion field according to the Dirac equations.

2. The Standard Model starts with the assumption of massless fermion labeling them as purely left- or right-handed chiral fermions. After the massless fermion obtained its mass term, they are still labeled as left- and right-handed fermion. If it is left- and right-handed chirality, then it contradicts with the Dirac equation as there is no massive fermion with purely one chirality. Also, these purely chiral fields do not even satisfy the equations of motion from the SM Lagrangian.

3. Therefore, the unification of electroweak interactions is at best Lorentz-violating approximation, not a fundamental property of nature.

For the experimental evidence, I would suggest SLAC E158 parity violating observation, since the parity violation of massive fermion is consistent with Lorentz violation; parity is the symmetry between left- and right-handed helicity in massive fermion and those two can be transformed into each other under Lorentz transformations. Therefore, if parity of massive fermion is violated, then it means Lorentz violation.
The reason for the Lorentz violation of SLAC E158 can also be found in both its calculation and experimental method. The matrix element, which is supposed to be Lorentz invariant, is divided into each helicity, which makes the matrix element Lorentz violating; the matrix element of left-handed helicity can vanish in a certain frame under the Lorentz transformation, where the left-handed helicity massive fermion is flipped into the right-handed one.

Again, I would like to apologize if this email waste your time and effort.

Thanks,
J.C. Yoon

Dear Professor Glashow,

I am sending this email to let you know I am still waiting for your response on my criticism against the Standard Model.

To reflect the seriousness of this issue, this email is addressed to administrational persons of your universities.
Please let me introduce this issue for them.

The Nobel Prize in 1979 was awarded for the electroweak interactions as

"for their contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles, ..."

A few years ago, I raised an inquiry whether or not this electroweak interaction is rigorous. And my careful investigation led to a conclusion that the unification of weak and electromagnetic interaction is only approximate with the implication of Lorentz violation.

You may find more information from:
Preprint: "Lorentz violation of the Standard Model"

Fully aware how bold this claim was, I have surveyed many experts in high energy physics for years and brought this issue to the public via an internet news group sci.physics.research, but even after this years of exhaustive scrutiny no reasonable refutation has been found.

I believe it is time for the author of theory to respond this criticism with responsibility.

Here I request his more elaborate response, available to the public through the news group, since it is a matter of public interest now.

Thanks,
J.C. Yoon
