TGD Counterpart for Higgs-Like Particle

Matti Pitkänen


This article is second article devoted to the TGD based interpretation as a pion-like state of scaled up variant of hadron physics. The original proposal was that the TGD counterpart of Higgs does not cause massivation of weak bosons. It however turned out that the most elegant option corresponds to a situation in which weak gauge bosons receive their mass via Higgs mechanism applying also in the case of pion, which is  pseudo-scalar state. The problem is that only one of the four pion-like states remains in the spectrum so that the identification as M89 pion fails. The resolution of the problem is simple: the pion  in question is Euclidian pion assignable to a flux tube connecting opposite throats of wormhole contact having Euclidian signature of induced metric whereas ordinary Minkowskian M89 pion connects throats of separate wormhole contacts.  Higgs mechanism is exactly similar to that in standard model as far as gauge bosons are considered. The absence of direct linear fermionic couplings saves from large radiative corrections to the tachyonic mass term causing the hierarchy problem.  The tachyonic mass term has a microscopic origin and is describable as bilinear coupling of Higgs like doublet and its conjugate to YM action density and corresponding instanton density developing a vacuum expectation values in Euclidian space-time regions identifiable as the lines of generalized Feynman diagrams. The model predicts anomalously large production of electro-weak gauge bosons mediated by bilinear couplings to YM action and instanton density.  The comparison of the predicted anomalous production rate with experimental surplus gives very reasonable estimate for an overall magnitude of the coupling parameters consistent with the estimate obtained using   p-adic length scale hypothesis. The couplings to fermions are radiative and cannot be proportional to masses. This could explain the failure to find the decays to tau pairs.  Also a connection with the dark matter researches reporting signal at 130 GeV and possibly also at 110 GeV suggest itself: maybe also these signals also correspond to pion-like states.
