Dynamical generation of fermion masses in a warped extra dimension

14 Dec 2018, 15:20


Mr. Javier Castellano (JGU Mainz)


We explore the possibility of dynamically generating bulk fermion masses with an odd bulk scalar in warped extra dimensions. The odd bulk scalar acquires vacuum expectation value (VEV) along the extra-dimension and its Yukawa interactions with bulk fermions generate their bulk masses. The zero-mode localization of fermions along the warped extra dimension naturally explain the observed flavor structure and 4D fermion mass hierarchy of the SM fermions. We study the phenomenological implications of first KK mode of the scalar field and its interaction with SM Higgs, which is localized at the IR brane.
