Title: Nonminimal quartic inflation in classically conformal U ( 1 ) X extended standard model

Abstract

We propose quartic inflation with nonminimal gravitational coupling in the context of the classically conformal U (1) X extension of the standard model (SM). In this model, the U(1) X gauge symmetry is radiatively broken through the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism, by which the U(1) X gauge boson (Z ' boson) and the right-handed Majorana neutrinos acquire their masses. We consider their masses in the range of O (10 GeV ) - O (10 TeV) , which are accessible to high-energy collider experiments. The radiative U (1) X gauge symmetry breaking also generates a negative mass squared for the SM Higgs doublet, and the electroweak symmetry breaking occurs subsequently. We identify the U(1) X Higgs field with inflaton and calculate the inflationary predictions. Because of the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism, the inflaton quartic coupling during inflation, which determines the inflationary predictions, is correlated to the U(1) X gauge coupling. With this correlation, we investigate complementarities between the inflationary predictions and the current constraint from the Z' boson resonance search at the LHC Run 2 as well as the prospect of the search for the Z' boson and the right-handed neutrinos at the future collider experiments.
