Title: Hidden modulus in the extended Veneziano-Yankielowicz theory

Abstract

The issue of domain walls in the recently extended Veneziano-Yankielowicz theory is investigated and we show that they have an interesting substructure. We also demonstrate the presence of a noncompact modulus. The associated family of degenerate solutions is physically due to the presence of a valley of vacua in the enlarged space of fields. This is a feature of the extended Veneziano-Yankielowicz theory. Unfortunately the above properties do not match the ones expected for the domain walls of N=1 super Yang-Mills.

  • We investigate the vacuum structure of pure SU(N) N=1 super Yang-Mills theory. The theory is expected to possess N vacua with associated domain walls. We show that the newly extended version of the low energy effective Lagrangian for super Yang-Mills theory supports the Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) domain wall solutions associated with any two vacua aligned with the origin of the moduli space. For the two color theory the domain wall analysis is complete. We also find new non-BPS domain wall solutions connecting any two vacua of the underlying SU(N) super Yang-Mills theory not necessarily aligned. When two vacua are aligned withmore » the origin of the moduli space these solutions are the BPS ones. We also discuss the generic BPS domain wall solutions connecting any two vacua within the extended Veneziano-Yankielowicz theory.« less
  • Using the standard auxiliary field method, we derive from the extended Nambu{endash}Jona-Lasinio model an effective meson action containing vector and axial-vector mesons in addition to Goldstone bosons. The vector and axial-vector mesons in this effective action transform as gauge fields of hidden local symmetry {ital G}{sub local}=[U({ital n}){sub {ital L}}{times}U({ital n}){sub {ital R}}]{sub local}. Here, the realization of enlarged hidden local symmetry is accomplished via the introduction of two kinds of {open_quote}{open_quote}compensating{close_quote}{close_quote} fields. For obtaining the intrinsic-parity-violating part of the action, we generalize the standard gauged Wess-Zumino-Witten action such that it also contains two kinds of {open_quote}{open_quote}compensators{close_quote}{close_quote} in addition tomore » the usual Goldstone bosons as well as the vector and axial-vector mesons. This generalized gauged Wess-Zumino-Witten action turns out to have {ital G}{sub global}{times}{ital G}{sub local} symmetry, where {ital G}{sub global} is the usual U({ital n}){sub {ital L}}{times}U({ital n}){sub {ital R}} global chiral symmetry while {ital G}{sub local} is the U({ital n}){sub {ital L}}{times}U({ital n}){sub {ital R}} hidden local symmetry. This means that {ital G}{sub local} has no gauge anomaly and its associated vector and axial-vector mesons can be regarded as gauge bosons of {ital G}{sub local}. The introduction of the coupling with the external electroweak fields requires us to gauge some appropriate subgroup of {ital G}{sub global}. To make it consistent with the anomaly structure of QCD is a nontrivial problem. We explain how this can be done, following the recent suggestion by several authors. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • Motivated in part by the several observed anomalies involving CP asymmetries of B and B{sub s} decays, we consider the standard model with a 4th sequential family (SM4) which seems to offer a rather simple resolution. We initially assume T-invariance by taking the up and down-quark 4 x 4 mass matrix to be real. Following Friedberg and Lee (FL), we then impose a hidden symmetry on the unobserved (hidden) up and down-quark SU(2) states. The hidden symmetry for four generations ensures the existence of two zero-mass eigenstates, which we take to be the (u,c) and (d,s) states in the upmore » and down-quark sectors, respectively. Then, we simultaneously break T-invariance and the hidden symmetry by introducing two phase factors in each sector. This breaking mechanism generates the small quark masses m{sub u}, m{sub c} and m{sub d}, m{sub s}, which, along with the orientation of the hidden symmetry, determine the size of CP-violation in the SM4. For illustration we choose a specific physical picture for the hidden symmetry and the breaking mechanism that reproduces the observed quark masses, mixing angles and CP-violation, and at the same time allows us to further obtain very interesting relations/predictions for the mixing angles of t and t'. For example, with this choice we get V{sub td} {approx} (V{sub cb}/V{sub cd}-V{sub ts}/V{sub us}) + O({lambda}{sup 2}) and V{sub t'b}{approx}V{sub t'd{sm_bullet}}(V{sub cb}/V{sub cd}), V{sub tb'}V{sub t'd{sm_bullet}}(V{sub ts}/V{sub us}), implying that V{sub t'd} > V{sub t'b}, V{sub tb'}. We furthermore find that the Cabibbo angle is related to the orientation of the hidden symmetry and that the key CP-violating quantity of our model at high energies, J{sub SM4} {triple_bond} Im(V{sub tb}V{sub t'b*}V{sub t'b{prime}}V{sub tb'*}), which is the high-energy analogue of the Jarlskog invariant of the SM, is proportional to the light-quark masses and the measured Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa quark-mixing matrix angles: |J{sub SM4}|A{sup 3}{lambda}{sup 5} x ({radical}(m{sub u}/m{sub t}) + {radical}m{sub c}/m{sub t'}-{radical}(m{sub d}/m{sub b}) + {radical}m{sub s}/m{sub b'}) {approx} 10{sup -5}, where A {approx} 0.81 and {lambda} = 0.2257 are the Wolfenstein parameters. Other choices for the orientation of the hidden symmetry and/or the breaking mechanism may lead to different physical outcomes. A general solution, obtained numerically, will be presented in a forthcoming paper.« less
  • We study hidden extended superconformal symmetries in superstring theories. It is shown that N = 1 and 2 locally supersymmetric strings actually possess N = 2 and 4 extended global superconformal symmetries, respectively. We also discuss how these hidden larger symmetries on the world sheet give rise to the spacetime supersymmetries and construct the supercharges using only symmetry generators on the world sheet.
  • We study the phase diagram of two weakly coupled one-dimensional dipolar boson chains at half-odd-integer fillings. We find that the system contains a rich phase diagram. Four different phases are found. They are the Mott insulators, the single-particle resonant superfluid, the paired superfluid, and the bond-density or interchain density waves. Moreover, the Mott insulating phase can be further classified according to a hidden string order parameter, which is analogous to the one investigated recently in the one-dimensional boson Mott insulator at integer fillings.
