Electroweak unification into a five-dimensional SU(3) at a TeV
The Weak Mixing Angle From TeV Scale Quark-Lepton Unification
Unified theories based on an extended left-right symmetric group, SU(4) × SU(2)4, are constructed in five dimensions. The compactification scale is assumed to be only a loop factor above the weak
A Half-Composite Standard Model at a TeV and Sin 2 θ W
We apply a recently proposed mechanism { in which an SU (3) symmetry predicts the weak mixing angle { to construct realistic theories with composite quarks and leptons at a TeV. Although the models
TeV scale 5D SU(3)W unification and the fixed point anomaly cancellation with chiral split multiplets
A possibility of 5D gauge unification of SU(2)L × U(1)Y in SU(3)W is examined. The orbifold compactification allows fixed points where SU(2)L × U(1)Y representations can be assigned. We present a few
A G2 Electroweak Model
The minimal SU(3) model for electroweak unification has been proposed and analyzed in the literature. The main attraction of this model is its prediction of the weak mixing angle which holds
Exceptional electroweak model
We consider a gauge extension of the electroweak sector of the standard model based on the group G{sub 2}xSU(2)xU(1). The exceptional group G{sub 2} is the smallest rank two group that contains SU(3)


Unification without unification
The logarithmic running of the gauge couplings alpha_1, alpha_2 and alpha_3, indicates that they may unify at some scale M_GUT ~ 10^16. This is often taken to imply that the standard model gauge
Logarithmic unification from symmetries enhanced in the sub-millimeter infrared
In theories with TeV string scale and sub-millimeter extra dimensions the attractive picture of logarithmic gauge coupling unification at 10{sup 16} GeV is seemingly destroyed. In this paper we argue
Phenomenology, astrophysics and cosmology of theories with submillimeter dimensions and TeV scale quantum gravity
We recently proposed a solution to the hierarchy problem not relying on low-energy supersymmetry or technicolor. Instead, the problem is nullified by bringing quantum gravity down to the TeV scale.
