A new study published in Physical Letters B by Dr. Shaaban Khalil, Director of the Center for Theoretical Physics, has been highlighted by Nature Middle East (NME).
The study, titled “TeV scale leptogenesis in B−L model with alternative cosmologies”, discusses how string theory can explain the presence of an unknown particle right after the Big Bang that allows there to be more matter than antimatter, effectively making the universe full of stars and planets.
In view of the recent illegal posts on the Facebook page of the City, we became aware of false information that is being circulated around regarding our professional procedures.
