SHEP Friday Seminar - Roman Zwicky - Event

4th of November, 2022  @  13:00 - 14:15
46/5081 and on Teams

Event details

​I will advocate a phase of gauge theories where the long distance scale symmetry is spontaneously broken by the quark condensate. This phase allows for massive hadrons and requires a dilaton, a genuine goldstone boson, which restores the Ward identities. I will discuss this on the example of the gravitational form factors. I will discuss the response of this system to explicit scale breaking of quark masses. At the end I will speculate that QCD itself and the Higgs sector could be of this type.
