Dynamical Gauge Symmetry Breaking in Strongly Coupled Lattice Theories    [PDF]

Simon Catterall, Aarti Veernala
We show how a strongly coupled lattice theory consisting of just fermions and gauge fields can exhibit a dynamical Higgs mechanism through the formation of a gauge invariant four fermion condensate. Furthermore, we show evidence that this lattice Higgs phase survives into the continuum limit where the broken symmetries are to be interpreted as chiral gauge symmetries.
