Complete asymptotically safe embedding of the standard model.

Abel, Steven and Mølgaard, Esben and Sannino, Francesco (2019) 'Complete asymptotically safe embedding of the standard model.', Physical review D., 99 (3). 035030.


We present and discuss the “Tetrad Model”, a large color/flavor embedding of the Standard model which has an interacting ultraviolet fixed point. It is shown that its extended-Pati-Salam symmetry is broken radiatively via the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism, while the remaining electroweak symmetry is broken when mass-squared terms run negative. In the IR the theory yields just the Standard Model, augmented by the fact that the Higgs fields carry the same generation indices as the matter fields. It is also shown that the Higgs mass-squareds develop a hierarchical structure in the IR, from a UV theory that is asymptotically flavor symmetric, opening up an interesting direction for explaining the emergence of the observed flavor structure.
