@article{Wan2019BeyondSM, title={Beyond Standard Models and Grand Unifications: anomalies, topological terms, and dynamical constraints via cobordisms}, author={Zheyan Wan and Juven C. Wang}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2019}, volume={2020}, pages={1-93} }

We classify and characterize fully all invertible anomalies and all allowed topo- logical terms related to various Standard Models (SM), Grand Unified Theories (GUT), and Beyond Standard Model (BSM) physics. By all anomalies, we mean the inclusion of (1) perturbative local anomalies captured by perturbative Feynman diagram loop calculations, classified by ℤ free classes, and (2) nonperturbative global anomalies, classified by finite group ℤ N torsion classes. Our work built from [31] fuses the…
