Holonomy papers (vol. 6 & 7) submitted to arXiv

It takes about a year and half but finally I have managed to write up. In the vol.6 paper we applied the mass generation prescriptions of scalars to fermions, which was done in this summer, but further efforts had to be made to apply the prescription to an electroweak model in the other vol.7 paper. Having reached some level of understanding, we now consider the incorporation of QCD and study the origin of generations, eventually trying to build a theory beyond the standard model.

Demolition of parents' house in Jiyugaoka

Since age 14 until 23 I lived in the house with my parents, sister and a maltese dog. Days of study and baseball. It seems like just a yesterday.
I heard that my grandfather Taiichi and his family moved to Jiyugaoka (from Hibarigaoka in Takarazuka City) after the World War II. So the Abe family stayed in the place for more than 60 years, however, after my grandmother Yayoi's passing away last year my uncle and parents decided to leave the place. Good Bye!
