Particle states appearing at energy scales of Q > 1TeV will be theorised, and introduced into an extension of the Standard Model of particle physics. Such states have the ability to change the running of the strong, weak and electromagnetic couplings with energy, and are capable of unifying these couplings into a single coupling at high energy. Once the potential for unification has been ascertained, successful particle state structures can then be embedded into representations of SO(10), or combinations thereof, such that SO(10) GUT models can be generated.
