Field Localization and the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Mass Generation Mechanism in an Alternative 5-Dimensional Brane Model
Physics and Astronomy
We consider a five-dimensional brane world model with a single brane which is distinct from the well known Randall-Sundrum model. We discuss the similarities and differences between our brane model and the Randall-Sundrum brane model. In particular we focus on the localization of five-dimensional fields with different spins—spin 0, spin 1 / 2 , and spin 1—to the brane, and a self-consistent mass-generation mechanism. We find that the brane model studied here has different (and in some cases superior) localization properties for fields/particles with different spins to the brane, as compared to the original five-dimensional brane models. In addition this alternative five-dimensional brane model exhibits a self-generation mechanism which recalls the self-consistent approach of Nambu and Jona-Lasinio.
