Abstract:

We generalize relativistic quantum mechanics and the Standard Model of elementary particle physics by considering a finite limit for the smallest measurable length. The resulting theory of Space-Time Quantization is logically consistent and accounts for all possible particle states by means of four new quantum numbers. They specify possible variations of wave functions at the smallest possible scale in space and time, while states of motion are defined by their large-scale variations. This theory also provides insight into the nature and properties of dark matter particles. It can facilitate their detection and identification because of a very strict conservation law.
