A HIGGSFREE MODEL FOR FUNDAMENTAL INTERACTIONS. Part I: Formulation of the Model
Abstract
We show that the local conformal group $C$ is a natural symmetry group of strong, electroweak and gravitational interactions. A model for these interactions invariant under the local symmetry group $G=SU(3)\times SU(2)_{L}\times U(1)\times C$ is postulated. It contains all Standard Model and gravitational fields, however the Higgs mass term $\mu^2\Phi^{\dagger}\Phi$ is forbidden. Using the unitary gauge and the conformal scale fixing conditions we can eliminate all four real components of the Higgs field in this model. In spite of that the tree level masses of vector mesons, leptons and quarks are automatically generated and they are given by the same formulas as in the conventional Standard Model. The gravitational sector of the model is also analyzed and it is shown that the model admits in the classical limit the Einsteinian form of gravitational interactions. We propose several experimental tests which can discriminate between the HiggsFree and the Standard Models.
