With this thesis the author contributes to the development of a nonmainstream
but long-standing approach to electroweak symmetry breaking
based on an analogy with superconductivity. Electroweak symmetry
breaking is assumed to be caused by dynamically generated masses of
typical fermions, i.e., of quarks and leptons, which in turn assumes a new
dynamics between quarks and leptons. Primarily it is designed to generate
fermion masses, and electroweak symmetry breaking is an automatic
consequence..
the summary of the topic, the first main part of the thesis addresses
the question as to whether the masses of known quarks and leptons provide
sufficiently strong sources of electroweak symmetry breaking. It is
demonstrated that neutrino masses subject to the seesaw mechanism are
indispensable ingredients. The other two parts of the thesis are dedicated
to the presentation of two particular models: The first model is based on
the new strong Yukawa dynamics and serves as a platform for studyingthe ability to reproduce fermion masses. The second, more realistic model
introduces a flavor gauge dynamics and its phenomenological consequences
are studied.
Although interest in this type of model has waxed and waned over the
years, following the discovery of the Standard-Model-like Higgs particle,
it is regaining its relevance.
