Fundamental symmetry

The many-body effect and amplification effect of fundamental symmetry breaking may be related to the origin of life, e.g., the way in which the spiral structure of DNA only twists clockwise and the fact that the amino acids necessary for life to exist are only of the L type. By focusing on the effects of amplifying symmetry breaking in the atomic nucleus medium of heavy elements, we aim to elucidate the breaking mechamisms in nature in the journey from elementary particles to atoms, and finally to complex particles.
