Symmetry Breaking and Symmetry Contraction

Project Details


Symmetry is the unique central organizing principle in modern theoretical physics. We have just achieved significant breakthroughs on dynamical symmetry breaking in high energy theory models and on the symmetry contraction perspective for understanding the formulation of various basic dynamical theories and their connections. The new project proposal aims at further developments on both fronts targeting the bigger prizes behind.The frontier on the concrete part of high energy theory related to TeV/LHC scale phenomenology is about a deep understanding of electroweak symmetry breaking and modelling the physics beyond. A supersymmetric standard model is one important and the most popular candidate. The Higgs mechanism is really like the Laudau-Ginzburg phenomenological theory in superconductivity, behind which we seek the BCS theory of the true dynamics. That points the direction to theory of dynamical electroweak
