Title: Asymptotically safe clockwork mechanism

Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate that safe quantum field theories can accommodate the clockwork mechanism upgrading it to a fundamental theory a lá Wilson. Additionally, the clockwork mechanism naturally sources Yukawa hierarchies for safe completions of the Standard Model. As proof of concept, we investigate a safe Pati-Salam clockwork structure.
