# Scalar democracy

@article{Hill2019ScalarD, title={Scalar democracy}, author={Christopher T. Hill and Pedro A. N. Machado and A. E. Thomsen and Jessica Turner}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2019} }

We conjecture that there exists a scalar bound state for every pair of fundamental fermions at a UV (`composite') scale, $\Lambda\gg v_{\text{weak}}$. This implies a large number of universally coupled, sub-critical Higgs doublets. All but the Standard Model Higgs are `dormant,' with large positive squared masses and each receives a small vacuum expectation values via mixing with the Standard Model Higgs. Universal couplings, modulo renormalization group running effects, flips the flavor… Expand

LHC probes of the 10 TeV scale

- Physics
- 2019

The usual range of new particle masses, up to a few TeV, searched for at the LHC may be substantially extended if ultraheavy diquark particles exist. A diquark scalar, $S_{uu}$, that interacts… Expand

Stability of the Higgs sector in a flavor-inspired multi-scale model

- Physics
- 2020

We analyze the stability of the Higgs sector of a three-site model with flavor-non-universal gauge interactions, whose spectrum of non-Standard-Model states spans three orders of magnitude. This… Expand

Light neutrino masses from gravitational condensation: the Schwinger–Dyson approach

- Physics
- 2019

In this work we demonstrate that non-zero neutrino masses can be generated from gravitational interactions. We solve the Schwinger-Dyson equations to find a non-trivial vacuum thereby determining the… Expand

Natural top-bottom mass hierarchy in composite Higgs models

- Physics
- 2020

We consider composite two-Higgs doublet models based on gauge-Yukawa theories with strongly interacting fermions generating the top-bottom mass hierarchy. The model features a single "universal"… Expand

PRIVATE HIGGS AT THE LHC

- Physics
- 2012

We study the LHC phenomenology of a general class of "Private Higgs" (PH) models, in which fermions obtain their masses from their own Higgs doublets with Yukawa couplings, and the mass hierarchy is… Expand

Is the Higgs Boson Associated with Coleman-Weinberg Dynamical Symmetry Breaking?

- Physics
- 2014

The Higgs mechanism may be a quantum phenomenon, i.e., a Coleman-Weinberg potential generated by the explicit breaking of scale symmetry in Feynman loops. We review the relationship of scale… Expand

Flavor-phenomenology of two-Higgs-doublet models with generic Yukawa structure

In this article, we perform an extensive study of flavor observables in a two-Higgs-doublet model with generic Yukawa structure (of type III). This model is interesting not only because it is the… Expand

Neutrino Masses and Mixings in Gauge Models with Spontaneous Parity Violation

- Physics

Unified electroweak gauge theories based on the gauge group SU(2)/sub L/ x SU(2)/sub R/ x U(1)/sub B/-L, in which the breakdown of parity invariance is spontaneous, lead most naturally to a massive… Expand

We estimate constraints on the existence of a heavy, mostly sterile neutrino with mass between 10 eV and 1 TeV. We improve upon previous analyses by performing a global combination and expanding the… Expand

The total inclusive cross section for charged and neutral Higgs production in heavy-quark annihilation is presented through NNLO QCD. It is shown that, aside from an overall factor, the partonic… Expand

We introduce Higgs democracy in the Yukawa sector by constructing a model with a private Higgs and a dark scalar for each fermion thus addressing the large hierarchy among fermion masses. The model… Expand
