Abstract Classically scale-invariant models are attractive not only because they may offer a solution to the long-standing gauge hierarchy problem, but also due to their role in facilitating strongly supercooled cosmic phase transitions. In this paper, we investigate the interplay between these two aspects. We do so in the context of the electroweak phase transition (EWPT) in the minimal scale-invariant theory. We find that the amount of supercooling generally decreases for increasing scalar…

Spontaneous breaking of conformal symmetry has been widely exploited in successful model building of both inflationary cosmology and particle physics phenomenology. Conformal Grand Unified Theory
Remark on the QCD-electroweak phase transition in a supercooled Universe
In extensions of the Standard Model with no dimensionful parameters the electroweak phase transition can be delayed to temperatures of order 100 MeV. Then the chiral phase transition of QCD can
Dynamical symmetry breaking and fermion mass hierarchy in the scale-invariant 3-3-1 model
We propose an extension of the Standard Model (SM) based on the $SU(3)_C\otimes SU(3)_L\otimes U(1)_X$ (3-3-1) gauge symmetry and scale invariance. Maintaining the main features of the so-called
Transformation of scalar couplings between Coleman-Weinberg and MS schemes
The Coleman-Weinberg (CW) renormalization scheme for renormalization-group improvement of the effective potential is particularly valuable for CW symmetry-breaking mechanisms (including the
Scale genesis by dark matter and its gravitational wave signal
Classical scale invariance (CSI) may shed light on the weak scale origin, but the realistic CSI extension to the standard model requires a bosonic trigger. We propose a scalar Dark Matter(DM) field
Supercool Composite Dark Matter beyond 100 TeV
Dark matter could be a composite state of a confining sector with an approximate scale symmetry. We consider the case where the associated pseudo-Goldstone boson, the dilaton, mediates its
Phase transition dynamics and gravitational wave spectra of strong first-order phase transition in supercooled universe
Phase transition dynamics may play important roles in the evolution history of the early universe, such as its possible roles in electroweak baryogenesis and dark matter.We systematically discuss and

Within a recently proposed classically conformal model, in which the generation of neutrino masses is linked to spontaneous scale symmetry breaking, we investigate the associated phase transition and
Cosmological consequences of nearly conformal dynamics at the TeV scale
Nearly conformal dynamics at the TeV scale as motivated by the hierarchy problem can be characterized by a stage of significant supercooling at the electroweak epoch. This has important cosmological

We perform a systematic analysis of an extension of the Standard Model that includes a complex singlet scalar field and is scale invariant at the tree level. We call such a model the Minimal Scale
Gravitational waves from conformal symmetry breaking
We consider the electroweak phase transition in the conformal extension of the standard model known as SU(2)cSM. Apart from the standard model particles, this model contains an additional scalar and
QCD-Electroweak First-Order Phase Transition in a Supercooled Universe.
TLDR
It is shown that, depending on the model parameters, a dramatically different scenario may happen: A first-order, six massless quark QCD phase transition occurs first, which then triggers the electroweak symmetry breaking, which potentially rich in cosmological consequences.
Conformal realization of the neutrino option
It was recently proposed that the electroweak hierarchy problem is absent if the generation of the Higgs potential stems exclusively from quantum effects of heavy right-handed neutrinos which can
