EPJ Plus – Alternative Electroweak Model without a Higgs

While the hunt is on for the Higgs at the LHC, model building continues to explore also other scenarios. Here, an ultraviolet complete electroweak model is presented that assumes running coupling constants described by energy-dependent entire functions. Contrary to the conventional formulation the action contains no physical scalar fields and no Higgs particle, even if the foreseen masses for particles are compatible with known experimental values.

In addition the vertex couplings possess an energy scale for predicting scattering amplitudes that can be tested in current particle accelerators. As a result the paper provides an essential alternative to the current established knowledge in the field and addresses an issue that might soon be resolved, as the Large Hadron Collider could provide the experimental evidence of theexistence or non-existence of the Higgs boson.
