Higgs mechanism in the Randall-Sundrum model

  author={Antonino Flachi and David J. Toms},
We consider the dimensional reduction of a bulk scalar field in the Randall-Sundrum model. By allowing the scalar field to be nonminimally coupled to the spacetime curvature we show that it is possible to generate spontaneous symmetry breaking on the brane. e-mail:antonino.flachi@ncl.ac.uk e-mail: d.j.toms@newcastle.ac.uk
