  • Tuesday, September 18, 2018
    Math Physics Seminar
    “Do Particles and Anti-particles Really Annihilate Each Other?”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room 343
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Michael Kiessling, Rutgers University

    Description: In this talk I present theoretical evidence, based on non-perturbative semi-classical quantization techniques, that what appears as the annihilation of Positronium (Ps) may in reality be just another electromagnetic transition from the hydrogenic pseudo-ground state of Ps to a true quantum-mechanical ground state near zero energy, caused by the magnetic interactions of the particles. This ground state cannot be found by perturbing around the hydrogenic pseudo-ground state using the usual Feynman diagram techniques. Once in this tightly bound near-0 energy ground state, Ps would behave effectively like an ultralight neutral spin-0 boson --- the very type of particle currently thought to be the most likely explanation for the mysterious dark matter in the universe.
