We investigate the possibility to find an ultraviolet comple tion of the simple extensions of the Standard Model where baryon number is a local symmetry. In the context of suc h theories one can understand the spontaneous breaking of baryon number at the low scale and the proton stab ility. We find a simple theory based on SU(4)C⊗ SU(3)L⊗SU(3)R where baryon number is embedded in a non-Abelian gauge symme try. We discuss the main features of the theory and the possible implications for exp… CONTINUE READING
