    like vs. as in

    Is this sentence correct:

    1) A neurtino's antimatter partner is called a geoneutrino, and like other antimatter-matter interactions, when the two meet they annihilate.

    Page 3: Neutrinos

    I have a problem with 'like other antimatter-matter interactions', but maybe 'like' here is the equivalent of 'as is the case with'.... Then the sentence will sort of work, although 'the two' in question don't meet in 'other antimatter-matter interactions'.

    Like doesn't bother me, to be honest, and it has the meaning you suggest. I would put a comma before like. I would not use annihilate like that- I would add each other.
