Novel Higgs potentials from gauge mediation of exact scale breaking.

Abel, Steven and Mariotti, Alberto (2014) 'Novel Higgs potentials from gauge mediation of exact scale breaking.', Physical review D., 89 (12). 125018 .


We present a gauge mediation principle for beyond standard model theories where exact UV scale invariance is broken in a hidden sector. The relevant configurations are those in which the standard model and a hidden sector emanate from a scale invariant pair of UV theories that communicate only via gauge interactions. We compute the radiatively induced Higgs potential which contains logarithmic mass-squared terms that lead to unusual Higgs self-couplings. Its other couplings are unchanged.
