Top quark and Higgs boson masses from wormhole physics

Technical Report:

Abstract

This paper, brings together quantum field theory on S{sub 4} with the Coleman wormhole hypothesis, which imposes constraints on terms in the gravitational Lagrangian. In particular, it investigates the effect of matter fields on the trace anomaly, which is related to the curvature terms, by the use of the renormalization group equations. A toy model of a non-conformally coupled Higgs boson to a single top quark is considered. By numerically solving the renormalization group equations for the couplings of the model, preferred values of the particle masses were found for various values of the bare non-conformal coupling. By making the ad-hoc assumption that the tree-level, Higgs boson trace anomaly, vanishes on shell, a unique prediction can be made within this model for the masses of both the Higgs and the Top. 20 refs., 12 figs.
