Electroweak vacuum stability in classically conformal B  L extension of the standard model
Here, we consider the minimal U(1) _{B  L } extension of the standard model (SM) with the classically conformal invariance, where an anomalyfree U(1) _{B  L } gauge symme try is introduced along with three generations of righthanded neutrinos and a U(1) _{B  L } Higgs field. Because of the classi cally conformal symmetry, all dimensional parameters are forbidden. The B  L gauge symmetry is radiatively bro ken through the Coleman–Weinberg mechanism, generating the mass for the U(1) _{B  L } gauge boson (Z' boson) and the righthanded neutrinos. Through a small negative coupling between the SM Higgs doublet and the B  L Higgs field, the negative mass term for the SM Higgs doublet is gener ated and the electroweak symmetry is broken. We investigate the electroweak vacuum instability problem in the SM in this model context. It is well known that in the classically conformal U(1) _{B  L } extension of the SM, the electroweak vacuum remains unstable in the renormalization group anal ysis at the oneloop level. In this paper, we extend the anal ysis to the twoloop level, and perform parameter scans. We also identify a parameter region which notmore »

We also identify a parameter region which not only solve the vacuum instability problem, but also satisfy the recent ATLAS and CMS bounds from search for Z ' boson resonance at the LHC Run2. Considering selfenergy corrections to the SM Higgs doublet through the righthanded neutrinos and the Z ' boson, we derive the naturalness bound on the model parameters to realize the electroweak scale without finetunings.},
