A fundamental theory of mass generation


A team of four theoretical physicists, Francesco Sannino from Cp3-Origins at the University of Southern Denmark, Alessandro Strumia from CERN theory division and Pisa Univ., Andrea Tesi from the Enrico Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago in US, and Elena Vigiani from Pisa University have recently published in the Journal of High Energy Physics their work "Fundamental partial compositeness, JHEP11(2016)029 ".

They demonstrated that it is possible to construct fundamental theories in which the Higgs is composite and that are able to provide mass to all known particles. Differently from the standard model Higgs scenario, in which no new physics is predicted till the Planck scale, these theories predict hundreds of new composite particles to be discovered at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN or at future colliders. The new fundamental dynamics encompasses the Composite Higgs paradigm pioneered by D.B. Kaplan and H. Georgi, Phys. Lett. B136, 183 (1984), Nucl. Physics B365 (1991), 259-278.
