G2HDM: Gauged Two Higgs Doublet Model
Abstract
A novel model embedding the two Higgs doublets in the popular two Higgs doublet models into a doublet of a nonabelian gauge group SU(2)_{ H } is presented. The Standard Model SU(2)_{ L } righthanded fermion singlets are paired up with new heavy fermions to form SU(2)_{ H } doublets, while SU(2)_{ L } lefthanded fermion doublets are singlets under SU(2)_{ H }. Distinctive features of this anomalyfree model are: (1) Electroweak symmetry breaking is induced from spontaneous symmetry breaking of SU(2)_{ H } via its triplet vacuum expectation value; (2) One of the Higgs doublet can be inert, with its neutral component being a dark matter candidate as protected by the SU(2)_{ H } gauge symmetry instead of a discrete Z _{2} symmetry in the usual case; (3) Unlike LeftRight Symmetric Models, the complex gauge fields ( W _{1} ^{'} ∓ W _{2} ^{'} ) (along with other complex scalar fields) associated with the SU(2)_{ H } do not carry electric charges, while the third component W _{3} ^{'} can mix with the hypercharge U(1)_{ Y } gauge field and the third component of SU(2)_{ L }; (4) Absence of tree level flavour changing neutral current is guaranteed by gauge symmetry; and etc. In this work, we concentrate on the mass spectra of scalar and gauge bosons in the model. Constraints from previous Z' data at LEP and the Large Hadron Collider measurements of the Standard Model Higgs mass, its partial widths of γγ and Zγ modes are discussed.
