Sterile Neutrinos, Black Hole Vacuum and Holographic Principle
Abstract
We construct an effective field theory (EFT) model that describes matter field interactions with Schwarzschild miniblackholes (SBH's), treated as a scalar field, $$B_0(x)$$. Fermion interactions with SBH's require a random complex spurion field, $$\theta_{ij}$$, which we interpret as the EFT description of "holographic information," which is correlated with the SBH as a composite system. We consider Hawking's virtual black hole vacuum (VBH) as a Higgs phase, $$\langle B_0 \rangle =V$$. Integrating sterile neutrino loops, the field $$\theta_{ij}$$ is promoted to a dynamical field, necessarily developing a tachyonic instability and acquiring a VEV of order the Planck scale. For $N$ sterile neutrinos this breaks the vacuum to $$SU(N)\times U(1)/SO(N)$$ with $N$ degenerate Majorana masses, and $(1/2)N(N+1)$ NambuGoldstone neutrinoMajorons. The model suggests many scalars fields, corresponding to all fermion bilinears, may exist bound nonperturbatively by gravity.
