19 -- Part 3: .1 Show that

- The strength of neutral current processes is compared to charged current processes.

- There are surprising features in (22.173) and (22.174).

- We shall return to this after discussing (22.173) if we considered the typical divergence of a scalar particle in a loop.
- The sensitivity is only a function of time.

- The fermion mass in the numerator is square.

- Consider the contribution from the longitudinal components of the W's.
- The W+ and Z0 allowed three of the four Higgs components to become massive.
- The'swallowed' Higgs fields to fermions are determined by the same Yukawa couplings that were used to generate the fermion mass.

- We have not yet discussed the H symmetry of the assumed minimal Higgs sector.

- It is a natural consequence of having the symmetry broken by an SU(2)L doublet Higgs field or any number of doublets.

- There may be some extra symmetry in (22.8) which is special to the doublet structure.

- W is 1.

- The requirement of a massless photon is a consequence of the global SU(2) symmetry of the interactions and the vacuum under.

- The component is global SU (2).

- The numerator has 2 in it.
- This question can now be answered.

- The symmetry is broken by the quark mass difference.

- The gauge interactions of the quarks obey the same symmetry as the transformation on the L components, except that it is global.
- The R components are decoupled from the gauge dynamics and we are free to make the transformation if we want.

- I re 22.

- H would act like a c.

- We will r e tu r n to th is p a r ticu lar d e tail.

- After all, be so dramatic.

- The sensitivity of the St andard Model is only logarith mic.

- The 2 s.d.
- has been ruled out by searches that rule out a Higgs mass less than 120 GeV.

- H 115 GeV.

- The screening was shown to be a consequence of the isospin SU(2) symmetry we have just discussed.

- The situation was different with the top quark.

- The W and Z particles were discovered in 1983, but the data was not very sensitive to virtual effects.

- H is 60 GeV.

- This is a triumph for both theory and experiment.
- The quantum fluctuations of a new particle could pin down its mass so precisely.
- Nature has made use of a renormalizable, spontaneously broken, non-Abelian gauge theory.

- The feature of the'real' top events is noteworthy.

- The real process is much faster than W. Consider the production of a pair of t-ts.
- The strong interactions which should eventually 'hadronize' them will not play a role until they are separate.
- If they travel close to the speed of light, they can only travel up to 16 m before they die.
- T's tend to decay before they experience the QCD interactions.
- This fast decay of the t quark means that there will be no t-t 'toponium'.

- The discovery of the missing particle in the Standard Model is of paramount importance now that the t quark is real.

- We should end this chapter with a review of the Higgs physics.

- The particles in this world are massless.

- In particle physics, a lot of effort has gone into examining various analogous 'dynamical sy mmetry b reaking' th eories.

- I am as to b e ad m itted th at th is p ar t o f th e Stan d ar d Mo d el ap p ear s to b e th least satisfacto r y.
- The Yukawalike fermion couplings are both unconstrained and different in magnitude.
- All of these are renormalizable, but they are not calculable and have to be taken from experiment.

- A commonly held view is that the 'Higgs Sector' is on a somewhat different footing than the rest of it.
- It could be seen as more of a 'phenomenology' than a 'theory'.
- We may be able to mentio n a point in this connection.
- The term would usually be just the mass term of the field.
- The matter is more delicate in the Higgs case.

- The scale of 'new physics' is very high.

- There is nothing like a dramatic 'fine-tuning' problem when it comes to mass corrections.

- There is a good reason for this in the case of the electron mass.
- To contain only logarith ms of the cut-off, self-energ y corrections must be proportional to their mass.

- Thehierarchy problem is a problem.
- One would really like to understand far better if we stress that we ar e d ealin g h er e with an a so lu tely cr.

- The scale at which the Standard Model ceases to be a calculable theory will be shown in the next section.
- The kind of physics that might enter at energies of a few TeV is suggested.
- For example, 'technicolour' models think that the Higgs field is a result of some new heavy air in g id.
- A seco n d p o ssib ility is a protective sy mmetry that can be put alongside fermions in super multiplets.
- The third possibility is that of large extra dimensions.

- H can't be too large.
- We have considered violations of unitarity by the lowest order d iagrams before.
- The high-energy behavior can be seen between different lowestorder diagrams.
- They are related to their renormalizability.
- There is a process in which two W's scatter from each other.
- An unexpected result can be understood at first sight.

- The scattering of longitudinal W's is the result of the scattering of the three Goldstone bosons.

- H gets bigger than a certain value.
- It is reminiscent of the original situation with the four-fermion current- current interaction itself.
- This could be a clue that we need to replace the Higgs theory.
- The line of reasoning seems to imply that the Higgs boson will be found at a mass well below 1 TeV, or that some weak interactions will become strong with new physical consequences.
- The construction of the LHC was motivated by this 'no lose' situation.

- The Standard Model predicts some aspects of the Higgs production and decay processes.

- This excludes a lot of possibilities in decay and production.

- The cross-section is the same for pp and p-p colliders.

- If you want to verify, use the Higgs Couplings given in appendix Q.

- The law of combination is not commutative.

- An infinite group is a set that does not have a finite number of elements.

- The inverse is the usual matrix inverse.

- Although matrix multiplication is not commutative in general, it happens to be for certain matrices.
- The way the four matrices are combined is the same as the way the four numbers are combined.

- We are concerned with various kinds of coordinate transformations, not only spacetime ones but also internal ones.
- The elements of a group are specified by three real parameters.
- There are two ways to define the axis of the rotation.
- Three of the real parameters are for 3D rotation and three are for pure velocity transformations.

- The values of eight real parameters are used to specify the matrices of SU(3).

- If we are given the form of the group elements in the neighbourhood of any one element, we can'move out' from that neighbourhood to other nearby elements using the mathematical procedure known as 'analytic continuation'.

- In all pairs of indices,'s are anti-symmetric.

- The Lie algebra of the group is satisfied by these g enerators.
- The ey have the same algebra.

- There is a method for getting matrix representations of Lie algebras.

- This is the same as the number of independent mutually commuting generators.

- One particular representation of the generators can be obtained by considering the general form of a matrix in the group which is infinitesimally close to the unit element.

- The SU(3) algebra is satisfying.

- The coefficients on the right-hand side are not related to the SO(3) structure constants.

- As required,'s satisfy the group algebra.

- Let's return to the correspondence between SU and SO.

- The identity matrix of SU (2) is not clearly defined by our theorem.
- In the Copyright 2004, the SU(2) matrices cannot be said to represent rotation.

- Up to a sign, SU (2) matrices provide a representation of SO (3).

- The groups are isomorphic if wefactor out this sign.
- A more precise way of saying this is given in Jones.

- First, we consider (N.1).

- 4 can be exposed and dealt with by a renormalization scheme like we did with the cut-off procedure.
- The difference between the simple cut-off regularization we used in chapter 10 and the one we used in chapter 11 is that the gauge invariance is preserved.

- The necessary mathematics was developed by Grassmann and applied to quantum amplitudes by Berezin.

- Grassmann numbers can be added and subtracted in a variety of ways.
- We need to integrate over Grassmann numbers for our application.
- As with ordinary numbers and functions, integration would be an inverse of differentiation.
- Let's start with differentiation.

- We must approach Grassmann integ ratio via an inve r.

- The path integral formalism uses this property to make manipulations similar to those in section 16.4 but with Grassmann numbers.

- We need a convention about the order in which the integrals are to be performed.

- Since our application will be to Dirac fields, which are complex-valued, we need to introduce complex Grassmann numbers, which are built out of real and imaginary parts in the usual way.

- Under complex conjugation, O.14 is consistent.

- The path integral formalism requires some Gaussian integrals over Grassmann variables, which we are ready to evaluate.

- When written in 'discretized' form, this result isficient to establish the assertion m ad e in section 16.4 concerning the integral.

- Gaussian integrals over complex Grassmann variables are proportional to the inverse of the determinant.

- They are equivalent.
