Indian physicist Ashoke Sen today spoke on ‘search for a unified theory.’
Sen was speaking on the occasion of the second day of the sixteenth edition of the IIT Bombay’s science and technology festival-Techfest at Powai.
Higs boson was an extremely important discovery as it gave mathematical consistency to the standard particle theory.These elementary particles interact via various kinds of forces,observed Sen.
“Standard particle disregards gravitational force. Thus, inspite of this theory being mathematically consistent the theory fails at experimental level”,said Sen who had received the first Fundamental Physics award for his contribution to the ”String Theory” last year.
”Spring theory is a possible answer to this. Spring theory is automatically a quantum theory of gravity”,said Sen
