Radiative symmetry breaking from interacting UV fixed points.

Abel, Steven and Sannino, Francesco (2017) 'Radiative symmetry breaking from interacting UV fixed points.', Physical review D., 96 (5). 056028.


It is shown that the addition of positive mass-squared terms to asymptotically safe gauge-Yukawa theories with perturbative UV fixed points leads to calculable radiative symmetry breaking in the IR. This phenomenon, and the multiplicative running of the operators that lies behind it, is akin to the radiative symmetry breaking that occurs in the supersymmetric standard model.
