The masses of a l l fundamental elementary particles (those with a lifetime > 10-24 sec) can be calculated with an inaccuracy of approx. 1% using the equation m/melectron = N/2α where α is the coupling constant of quantum electrodynamics (also known as fine structure constant) (= 1/137.036), and N is an integer variable. This is the by far most accurate and most comprehensive approach to calculate the particle masses.
