# Natural Extensions of Electroweak Geometry and Higgs Interactions

@article{Canarutto2014NaturalEO, title={Natural Extensions of Electroweak Geometry and Higgs Interactions}, author={Daniel Canarutto}, journal={Annales Henri Poincar{\'e}}, year={2014}, volume={16}, pages={2695-2711} }

We explore the possibility that the Higgs boson of the standard model be actually a member of a larger family, by showing that a more elaborate internal structure naturally arises from geometrical arguments, in the context of a partly original handling of gauge fields which was put forward in previous papers. A possible mechanism yielding the usual Higgs potential is proposed. New types of point interactions, arising in particular from two-spinor index contractions, are shown to be allowed.
