The derivation of Feynman rules for unparticles carrying standard model quantum numbers is discussed. In particular, this note demonstrates that an application of Mandelstam's approach to constructing a gauge-invariant action reproduces for unparticles the vertices one obtains through the usual minimal coupling scheme; other non-trivial requirements are satisfied as well. This approach is compared to an alternative method 0801.0892 that has recently been constructed by A. L. Licht.

Anomalies, unparticles, and Seiberg duality

We calculate triangle anomalies for fermions with non-canonical scaling dimensions. The most well known example of such fermions (aka unfermions) occurs in Seiberg duality where the matching of

Holographic Unhiggs

We propose an extra-dimensional approach to the unparticle Higgs (Unhiggs). The non-local 4D Unhiggs action is derived as the boundary effective action of a local 5D theory. We review the mechanism

The AdS/CFT/Unparticle Correspondence

We examine the correspondence between the anti-de Sitter (AdS) description of conformal field theories (CFTs) and the unparticle description of CFTs. We show how unparticle actions are equivalent to

Some issues in a gauge model of unparticles

We address in a recent gauge model of unparticles the issues that are important for consistency of a gauge theory, i.e., unitarity and the Ward identity of the physical amplitudes. We find that

Holographic unparticle Higgs boson

We propose an extra-dimensional approach to the unparticle Higgs. The nonlocal 4D unparticle Higgs action is derived as the boundary effective action of a local 5D theory. We review the mechanism to

Non-local Higgs actions: tree-level electroweak constraints and high-energy unitarity

We consider electroweak symmetry breaking by a certain class of non-local Higgs sectors. Extending previous studies employing the Mandelstam condition, a straight Wilson line is used to make the

Unparticle Phenomenology—A Mini Review

We review some collider phenomenology of unparticle physics, including real emissions and virtual exchanges of unparticle. Existing experimental constraints from collider physics as well as

Unparticle actions and gauge invariance

We show that the requirement of gauge invariance is not enough to fix the form of interactions between unparticles and gauge fields, thus revealing a wide new class of gauged unparticle actions. Our



Operator Coupling of Gauge Fields and Unparticles

We show that it is possible to couple gauge fields to unparticles without the use of path integrals in the unparticle effective action. This is done by treating the unparticle field as a vector in an

Gauge Fields and Unparticles

We show that a rigorous path integral method of introducing gauge fields in the UnParticle lagrangian leads to somewhat different and more complicated vertexes than those currently used.
