1. In Current Science, a positron is a subatomic particle having the same mass as an electron and a numerically equal but positive charge. The positron is considered a form of anti-matter.
2. In Neu Theory, a positron is fragment of proton core spinrise matter equal in mass to the electron, with a positive charge shell. See protino.
A positron is created to conserve the laws of number and form during physical transformations.
A positron is not anti-matter, as only a piece of ordinary spinrise matter plus an ordinary positive electric charge shell are involved.
The emission of a positron is one method of neutron creation, i.e., a helion in a large nucleus becomes unstable, creating a neutron and emitting a positron.« Back to Glossary Index
