A Higgsless model for strong, electroweak and gravitational interactions is proposed. This model is based on the local symmetry group SU(3)×SU(2)L×U(1)×C,where C is the local conformal symmetry group. The natural minimal conformally invariant form of total Lagrangian is postulated. It contains all standard model fields and gravitational interaction. Using the unitary gauge and the conformal scale fixing conditions, we can eliminate all four real components of the Higgs doublet in this model… 
A Higgs-Free Model for Fundamental Interactions
A model for strong, electroweak and gravitational interactions based on the local symmetry group G = SU(3) × SU(2) L × U(1) × C where C is the local conformai symmetry group is proposed. The natural
Conformal Symmetry Breaking in Einstein-Cartan Gravity Coupled to the Electroweak Theory
We develop an alternative to the Higgs mechanism for spontaneously breaking the local SU(2)xU(1) gauge invariance of the Electroweak Theory by coupling to Einstein-Cartan gravity in curved spacetime.
We point out an important role of conformal invariant observables in the formulation of quantum cosmology with a normalizable wave function which bears a direct relationship to the Friedmann
Gravity, as a classical regularizator for the Higgs field, and the genesis of rest masses and charge
The classical Einstein–Standard Model system with conformally invariant coupling of the Higgs field to gravity is investigated. We show that, while the structure of the field equations for the matter
Conformally invariant model of the early universe
A model of the early universe in the Einstein theory of gravitation, supplemented by a conformalty invariant version of the Weinberg—Salam model, is considered. The conformai symmetry principle leads
Generation of vector boson masses in Electroweak Model without dynamical symmetry breaking
The vector boson masses are generated by transformation of the free (without any potential term) Lagrangian of the Electroweak Model from Cartesian coordinates to a coordinates on the sphere S3,
Topological origin of vector boson masses in Electroweak Model
The topological mechanism for generation of vector boson masses in the Electroweak Model is discussed. Vector boson masses are automatically generated by transformation of the free Lagrangian from
Proper Time Dynamics in General Relativity and Conformal Unified Theory
The paper is devoted to the description a measurable time-interval (“proper time”) in the Hamiltonian version of general relativity with the Dirac-ADM metric. To separate the dynamical parameter of


Mass Generation in the Standard Model without Dynamical Higgs Field
We call attention to the fact that the gauge symmetry $SU(3)\times SU(2)_{_L}\times U(1)$ of the Standard Model can be easily and naturally extended by the local conformal symmetry connected with the
Einstein Gravity as a Symmetry Breaking Effect in Quantum Field Theory
This article gives a pedagogical review of recent work in which the Einstein-Hilbert gravitational action is obtained as a symmetry-breaking effect in quantum field theory. Particular emphasis is
Dynamical symmetry breaking and the standard model of electroweak interactions
In a version of the standard model the Higgs boson is replaced by a doublet (B + , B 0 ) of vector bosons, and the masses of gauge bosons and fermions are generated by the dynamical breaking of the
Mass Generation for Gauge Fields without Scalars
We present an alternative to the Higgs mechanism to generate masses for non-abelian gauge fields in (3+1)-dimensions. The initial Lagrangian is composed of a fermion with current-current and
Scale Covariant Theory of Gravitation and Astrophysical Applications
By associating the mathematical operation of scale transformation with the physics of using different dynamical systems to measure space-time distances, we formulate a scale-covariant theory of
General relativity as the low-energy limit in higher derivative quantum gravity
The curvature induced phase transition in quantum R2-gravity with matter is investigated. The renormalization group approach is used to calculate the effective potential with accuracy to linear
