The quantum properties of non-point particles

Quantum theory: it’s unreal We know that everything in the universe including particles have physical size. Even so for the past 50 years, the Standard Model of particle physics which many say has given us the most complete mathematical description of the particles and forces that shape our world ignores this fact and treats them […]
