Abstract

I suggest a minimal practical formal structure for a more fundamental theory than the Standard Model + GR and review a mechanism that produces such a structure.  The proposed mechanism has possibilities of producing non-canonical phenomena in SU(2) and SU(3) gauge theories which might allow conditional predictions that can be tested.

During my visit to PI, I hope also to discuss informally a separate project in pure QFT, a scheme to construct a new kind of QFT of extended objects (also described on my web page).
