The daemon kernel of the sun

Daemon-stimulated proton decay is capable of providing an appreciable part of the Sun luminosity L as well as non-electron flavour component in the solar neutrino flux. This follows, firstly, from our experiments on detection of negative daemons in Earth-crossing orbits, which give Δex ≈ 1 µs for the decay time of a daemon-containing proton, and, secondly, from an estimate of the total number of daemons which could be captured by the Sun from the Galactic disc (up to about 2.4 × 1030). Because of their huge mass (about 3 × 10−5 g), the captured daemons settle down to the Sun's centre to form there a kernel a few centimetres in size. The outside protons diffuse gradually into the kernel to decay there with a release of energy. If this process generates a noticeable part of L, physically sound estimates of the parameters of an isothermal kernel can be obtained under the assumption that it consists mainly of negative daemons. Proton decay maintains a high temperature of the daemon gas (up to about 1011-1012 K), which makes it physically collisionless and prevents kernel collapse into a black hole.
