Strong, electromagnetic, and weak forces were unified in the Standard Model (SM) with spontaneous gauge symmetry breaking. These forces were further conjectured to be unified in a simple Lie group gauge interaction in the Grand Unification (GUT). In this work, we propose a theory beyond the SM and GUT by adding new gapped topological sectors consistent with the nonperturbative global anomaly matching and cobordism constraints (especially from the baryon minus lepton number B−L and the mixed… Expand

Anomaly and Cobordism Constraints Beyond Grand Unification: Energy Hierarchy
A recent work [2006.16996] suggests that a 4d nonperturbative global anomaly of mod 16 class hinting a possible new hidden gapped topological sector beyond the Standard Model (SM) and Georgi-GlashowExpand
Gauge Enhanced Quantum Criticality Beyond the Standard Model
Standard lore ritualizes our quantum vacuum in the 4-dimensional spacetime (4d) governed by one of the candidate Standard Models (SMs), while lifting towards one of Grand Unifications (GUTs) atExpand
The anomaly that was not meant IIB
Type IIB supergravity enjoys a discrete non-Abelian duality group, which has potential quantum anomalies. In this paper we explicitly compute these, and present the bordism group that controls them,Expand

Quantum 4d Yang-Mills theory and time-reversal symmetric 5d higher-gauge topological field theory
We explore various 4d Yang-Mills gauge theories (YM) living as boundary conditions of 5d gapped short-/long-range entangled (SRE/LRE) topological states. Specifically, we explore 4d time-reversalExpand
AdjointQCD4, deconfined critical phenomena, symmetry-enriched topological quantum field theory, and higher symmetry extension
Recent work explores the candidate phases of the 4D adjoint quantum chromodynamics (QCD4) with an SU(2) gauge group and two massless adjoint Weyl fermions. Both Cordova-Dumitrescu and Bi-SenthilExpand
Origin of families and $SO(18)$ grand unification
We exploit a recent advance in the study of interacting topological superconductors to propose a solution to the family puzzle of particle physics in the context of SO(18) [or more correctly,Expand
A Non-Perturbative Definition of the Standard Models
The Standard Models contain chiral fermions coupled to gauge theories. It has been a long-standing problem to give such gauged chiral fermion theories a quantum non-perturbative definition. ByExpand
Symmetries and Strings in Field Theory and Gravity
We discuss aspects of global and gauged symmetries in quantum field theory and quantum gravity, focusing on discrete gauge symmetries. An effective Lagrangian description of Zp gauge theories showsExpand
Dai-Freed anomalies in particle physics
Abstract Anomalies can be elegantly analyzed by means of the Dai-Freed theorem. In this framework it is natural to consider a refinement of traditional anomaly cancellation conditions, whichExpand
Braiding Statistics and Link Invariants of Bosonic/Fermionic Topological Quantum Matter in 2+1 and 3+1 dimensions
Topological Quantum Field Theories (TQFTs) pertinent to some emergent low energy phenomena of condensed matter lattice models in 2+1 and 3+1D are explored. Many of our field theories areExpand
Anomaly matching in the symmetry broken phase: Domain walls, CPT, and the Smith isomorphism
Symmetries in Quantum Field Theory may have 't Hooft anomalies. If the symmetry is unbroken in the vacuum, the anomaly implies a nontrivial low-energy limit, such as gapless modes or a topologicalExpand
Topological invariants for gauge theories and symmetry-protected topological phases
We study the braiding statistics of particlelike and looplike excitations in two- (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) gauge theories with finite, Abelian gauge group. The gauge theories that we considerExpand
