Family structure from periodic solutions of an improved gap equation

Blumhofer, Andreas; Hutter, Marcus


Fermion mass models usually contain a horizontal symmetry and therefore fail to predict the exponential mass spectrum of the Standard Model in a natural way. In dynamical symmetry breaking there are different concepts to introduce a fermion mass spectrum, which automatically has the desired hierarchy. In constructing a specific model we show that in some modified gap equations periodic solutions with several fermion poles appear. The stability of these excitations and the application of this...[Show more]
