Koide’s Formula Follows from Nonlinear Dynamics of Quantum Fields

Ervin Goldfain


In this brief report we argue that Koide’s formula arises from universal attributes of nonlinear dynamics in field theory. Feigenbaum scaling not only provides a natural paradigm for generating particle masses and coupling charges, but also a basis for understanding the family structure of fermions.
