It is a common lore that the standard model cannot be correct (even when neutrino masses are taken into account). The following arguments are given:
- The standard model predicts the wrong vacuum energy (much higher than the observed value, even including the cosmological constant)
- The standard model does not explain of dark matter
- The standard model contains Landau poles
- The standard model does not explain - maybe contradicts - the observed matter/antimatter asymmetry
- The standard model - QFT - has infinities
- The top mass and the Higgs mass could potentially make the standard model unstable / unrenormalizable / wrong
Which other arguments do exist? It would also be great to have a reference to one or several lists. I will add the answers to this question as they come up.
There are also various arguments that the standard model is not complete; this is obvious, as
7. The standard model does not explain its 25 or so fundamental parameters.
8. The standard model does not contain gravity.
These two points however, do not make the standard model wrong, as they do not contradict it; they just make it incomplete. Indeed, the question is: Why exactly can't the standard model be correct? And: Are the points 1 to 6 valid?
