Quigg's Questions

杂谈

分类: 知识
1. What is the agent of electroweak symmetry breaking?
Is there a Higgs boson? Might there be several?
2. Is the Higgs boson elementary or composite? How does
it interact with itself? What shapes the Higgs potential—
or, more generally, triggers electroweak symmetry breaking?
3. Does the Higgs boson give mass to fermions, or only to
the weak bosons? What sets the masses and mixings of
the quarks and leptons? (How) is fermion mass related
to the electroweak scale?
4. Will new flavor symmetries give insights into fermion
masses and mixings?
5. What stabilizes the Higgs-boson mass below 1 TeV?
6. Do the dierent charged-current behaviors of left-handed
and right-handed fermions reflect a fundamental asymmetry
in nature’s laws?
7. What will be the next symmetry we recognize? Are
there additional heavy gauge bosons? Is nature supersymmetric?
Is the electroweak theory contained in a
grander unified theory?
8. Are all flavor-changing interactions governed by the
standard-model Yukawa couplings? Does “minimal flavor
violation” hold? If so, why? At what scale?
9. Are there additional sequential quark and lepton generations?
Or new exotic (vector-like) fermions?
10. What resolves the strong CP problem?
11. What are the dark matters? Might dark matter have a
flavor structure?
12. Is electroweak symmetry breaking an emergent phenomenon
connected with strong dynamics? How would
that alter our conception of unified theories of the strong,
weak, and electromagnetic interactions?
13. Is electroweak symmetry breaking related to gravity
through extra spacetime dimensions?
14. What resolves the vacuum energy problem?
15. (When we understand the origin of electroweak symmetry
breaking,) what lessons will electroweak symmetry
breaking hold for unified theories? . . . for inflation?
. . . for dark energy?
16. Will experiments reveal unexpected phenomena in strong
interactions?
17. What explains the baryon asymmetry of the universe?
Are there new CP-violating phases in charged-current
interactions?
18. Are there new flavor-preserving phases? What would
observation, or more stringent limits, on electric-dipole
moments imply for theories beyond the standard model?
19. (How) are quark-flavor dynamics and lepton-flavor dynamics
related (beyond the gauge interactions)?
20. At what scale are the neutrino masses set? Is the neutrino
its own antiparticle?
. . . and finally . . .
21. How are we prisoners of conventional thinking?
