• When a light scalar dilaton $\sigma$ and the light-quark vector mesons $V=(\rho,\omega)$ are incorporated into an effective scale-invariant hidden local symmetric (sHLS) Lagrangian, scale symmetry for $\sigma$ and local gauge symmetry for $V$, both invisible in QCD in the vacuum, arise as emergent symmetries at a density above $n_{1/2}\sim 2n_0$, a phenomenon highly relevant for massive compact stars, hitherto unobserved in standard chiral pertubative approaches. What takes place involves a… CONTINUE READING
