Higgs-gauge unification without tadpoles

  title={Higgs-gauge unification without tadpoles},
  author={C. Biggio and Mariano Quir{\'o}s},
In orbifold gauge theories localized tadpoles can be radiatively generated at the fixed points where U(1) subgroups are conserved. If the Standard Model Higgs fields are identified with internal components of the bulk gauge fields (Higgs-gauge unification) in the presence of these tadpoles the Higgs mass becomes sensitive to the UV cutoff and electroweak… CONTINUE READING
