Bottom quark and tau lepton masses in a toy ${\rm SU}(6)$

  title={Bottom quark and tau lepton masses in a toy \$\{\rm SU\}(6)\$},
  author={Ning Chen and Yingdong Mao and Zhaolong Teng},
We study a toy SU(6) model with the symmetry breaking pattern of the extended 331 symmetry of SU(3) c ⊗ SU(3) W ⊗ U(1) X . A “fermion-Higgs mismatching” symmetry breaking pattern is proposed for more realistic model building. Within such symmetry breaking pattern, only one Higgs doublet develops vacuum expectation value for the spontaneous electroweak symmetry breaking, and gives tree-level top quark mass. A natural VEV splittings in the 331 breaking Higgs fields gives tree-level masses to both…

A two-generational ${\rm SU}(7)$ model with extended weak sector: mass hierarchies, mixings, and the flavor non-universality

We study a possible gauge symmetry breaking pattern in an SU(7) grand unified theory, which describes the mass origins of all electrically charged SM fermions of the second and the third generations.



Fermion masses and mixing in extended technicolor models

We study fermion masses and mixing angles, including the generation of a seesaw mechanism for the neutrinos, in extended technicolor (ETC) theories. We formulate an approach to these problems that

Quark and lepton masses from top loops

Assuming that the leptons and quarks other than top are massless at tree level, we show that their masses may be induced by loops involving the top quark. As a result, the generic features of the

Predictive Dirac and Majorana neutrino mass textures from SU(6) grand unified theories

We present simple and predictive realizations of neutrino masses in theories based on the $SU(6)$ grand unifying group. At the level of the lowest-dimension operators, this class of models predicts a

Observation of Higgs Boson Decay to Bottom Quarks.

The main contribution to this result is from processes in which Higgs bosons are produced in association with a W or Z boson (VH), and are searched for in final states including 0, 1, or 2 charged leptons and two identified bottom quark jets.

SU(3) x U(1) gauge theory of weak and electromagnetic interactions

We describe an SU(3) x U(1) gauge theory of weak and electromagnetic interactions and study its experimental implications. In this theory all nonsinglet fermions are assigned to triplet

Radiative neutrino mass in 3-3-1 scheme

We propose a new radiative mechanism for neutrino mass generation based on the 3-3-1 electroweak gauge group. Lepton number is a symmetry of the Yukawa sector but spontaneously broken in the gauge

Question of Peccei-Quinn symmetry and quark masses in the economical 3-3-1 model

We show that there is an infinite number of U(1) symmetries like Peccei-Quinn symmetry in the 3-3-1 model with minimal scalar sector---two scalar triplets. Moreover, all of them are completely broken
