I Can complex spacetime solve the Higgs hierarchy problem?

  1. Nov 28, 2017 #1
    thus far the LHC hasn't found any evidence of SUSY or technicolor.

    thus far it's just 1 fundamental scalar

    there is an extensive literature on the Higgs hierarchy problem with various proposals and solutions offered

    has there been any scientific papers and research on the physical properties of fundamental scalars, like the higgs, on complex-valued spacetimes?

    is there a higgs hierarchy problem, and problems with sensitivity at the cut off
    if it is a scalar on spacetimes that also have complex, with both imaginary space and time components

    or to express it another way, since thus far only 1 fundamental scalar, the higgs, has been discovered by the LHC, can one possible solution to higg's hierarchy problem be that spacetime has hidden dimensions with complex values?

    it's higg's mass term that creates the problem, does changing the higgs on a complex spacetime change the properties of the mass term, removing it as the source of the hierarchy problem

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    Kodama.. as an avid researcher of BSM. Is it possible to proceed with Superstring theory if there is no SUSY below the planck scale? Or could Superstring accommodate SUSY even if it inside the planck scale?

    I've thought a lot about the Hierarchy Problem. Scale Symmetry seems to be a good approach. Where did you hear about spacetime
    that "has hidden dimensions with complex values?" Can you give an example so others know what you meant and can reply too?

    Also is there any connection of the Higgs Hiearchy Problem to the Cosmological Constant problems? I mean.. in both, the quantum dynamics can't seem to contribute to the tree term of the Higgs and even the vacuum.. perhaps we have a fundamental misunderstanding of some kind?
