  • We consider a confining Yang-Mills theory without goldstone bosons which could describe the bosonic sector of the weak interactions. This model can be gauge invariantly regularized on a lattice. Our strong coupling analysis of the low-lying bound state spectrum indicates that the vector isotriplet bound state (the right quantum number to represent the {ital W} boson) could be the lightest state if the mass of the pseudoscalar isosinglet is raised sufficiently by the effect of the chiral anomaly (in analogy with the {eta}{prime} mechanism of QCD). Our results go beyond the strong coupling results of Schlereth, extending the analysis awaymore » from the infinitely strong coupling limit. This is an important analytic support to our intensive lattice Monte Carlo simulation of the spectrum of this theory.« less
  • The mass equations of the Higgs boson [phi][sub [ital s]][sup 0] and the gauge bosons [ital W] and [ital Z] are expounded in a dynamical symmetry-breaking model of Nambu--Jona-Lasinio type with three quark-lepton generations and a heavier degenerate fourth [ital U]-fermion generation. The equation of [ital m][sub [phi][ital s]][sup 0] with an explicit momentum cutoff dependence and derived approximate formula of [ital m][sub [phi][ital s]][sup 0] are numerically solved and a more stringent mass constraint [ital m][sub [ital U]]+[ital m][sub [ital t]][le][ital m][sub [phi][ital s]][sup 0][le]2[ital m][sub [ital U]] is proven. The results show that the determination of the Higgsmore » boson mass will be the most important experimental test of the model with heavy [ital U] fermions. The mass of the [ital W] boson is argued to be independent of the momentum cutoff and almost independent of the masses of the heavy [ital t] quarks and [ital U] fermions. Its equation could take the form in the standard model and is dominated by light fermions. The mass of the [ital Z] boson, in addition to having the same feature as [ital m][sub [ital W]], will be affected by the weak isospin breaking caused by the mass difference [ital m][sub [ital t]][minus][ital m][sub [ital b]]. Such an effect makes not only the mass equation of the boson but also the [beta] function responsible for the running of the gauge coupling constants [ital g][sub 1] and [ital g][sub 2] in the mass equation deviate from the respective standard forms. It is also argued that if the electroweak gauge bosons were replaced by composites of fermions then the possibility of the existence of heavy [ital U] fermions would be removed.« less
  • We discuss the case of simultaneous mixing of gauge bosons and mixing of fermions in a model-independent way and for a variety of extra-fermion representations. In this context we analyze a class of lepton family-violating processes, namely, Z{r_arrow}e{bar {tau}}, Z{r_arrow}{mu}{bar {tau}}, Z{r_arrow}e{bar {mu}}, {mu}{r_arrow}ee{bar e}, {tau}{r_arrow}ee{bar e}, {tau}{r_arrow}{mu}{mu}{bar {mu}}, {tau}{r_arrow}e{mu}{bar {mu}}, and {tau}{r_arrow}{mu}e{bar e} in the presence of one extra neutral gauge boson Z{sup {prime}} with universal, nonuniversal, or family-changing couplings. We derive bounds on the combined effect of Z-Z{sup {prime}} mixing and ordinary{endash}exotic lepton mixing. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • We study the emission of fermion and gauge boson degrees of freedom on the brane by a rotating higher-dimensional black hole. Using matching techniques, for the near-horizon and far-field regime solutions, we solve analytically the corresponding field equations of motion. From this, we derive analytical results for the absorption probabilities and Hawking radiation emission rates, in the low-energy and low-rotation case, for both species of fields. We produce plots of these, comparing them to existing exact numerical results with very good agreement. We also study the total absorption cross section and demonstrate that, as in the nonrotating case, it hasmore » a different behavior for fermions and gauge bosons in the low-energy limit, while it follows a universal behavior - reaching a constant, spin-independent, asymptotic value - in the high-energy regime.« less
  • We discuss the aspects of the little Higgs model with the SU(4){sub L}xU(1){sub X} electroweak gauge group as an alternative solution to the naturalness and fine-tuning issues. We introduce anomaly-free fermion spectra, and present their interactions with the physical gauge bosons. We also discuss some phenomenological implications of these fermions and the extra gauge bosons based on recent experimental results.
