The possibility of physics beyond the Standard Model is studied. The requirement of finiteness of the zero-point energy density and pressure or the requirement of the Lorentz invariance of the zero-point stress-energy tensor in Minkowski space–time, implies regularization sum rules on the number of degrees of freedom and mass of fundamental particles spectrum. The consequences of these sum rules on the existence of particles beyond the Standard Model are studied. If these sum rules are to be…

A Class of Elementary Particle Models Without Any Adjustable Real Parameters

Conventional particle theories such as the Standard Model have a number of freely adjustable coupling constants and mass parameters, depending on the symmetry algebra of the local gauge group and the

Lorentz Invariance and the Zero-Point Stress-Energy Tensor

Some 67 years ago (1951), Wolfgang Pauli noted that the net zero-point energy density could be set to zero by a carefully fine-tuned cancellation between bosons and fermions. In the current article,

On the Invariant regularization in relativistic quantum theory

The formal method of regularization of mathematical expressions of sums of products of different types of $\ensuremath{\delta}$-functions is first applied to the example of vacuum polarization. It is

Vacuum energy, cosmological constant and Standard Model physics

The conditions for the cancellation of one loop contributions to vacuum energy (both U.V. divergent and finite) coming from the Standard Model (SM) fields are examined. It is proven that this is not

Making the Case for Conformal Gravity

We review some recent developments in the conformal gravity theory that has been advanced as a candidate alternative to standard Einstein gravity. As a quantum theory the conformal theory is both

The Cosmological Constant and Lorentz Invariance of the Vacuum State

One hope to solve the cosmological constant problem is to identify a symmetry principle, based on which the cosmological constant can be reduced either to zero, or to a tiny value. Here, we note that

Effective theory of flavor for Minimal Mirror Twin Higgs

A bstractWe consider two copies of the Standard Model, interchanged by an exact parity symmetry, P. The observed fermion mass hierarchy is described by suppression factors ϵni$$ {\upepsilon}^{n_i} $$

Minimal mirror twin Higgs

A bstractIn a Mirror Twin World with a maximally symmetric Higgs sector the little hierarchy of the Standard Model can be significantly mitigated, perhaps displacing the cutoff scale above the LHC

Intrinsically Quantum-Mechanical Gravity and the Cosmological Constant Problem

We propose that gravity be intrinsically quantum-mechanical, so that in the absence of quantum mechanics the geometry of the universe would be Minkowski. We show that in such a situation gravity does
