LHC famously did not find any evidence of SUSY(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

other proposals such as Technicolor extradimensions compositeness have come up empty.

it seems natural SUSY is not the solution to the hierarchy problem

is it plausible? if it works, what are its implications to SUSY and other BSM theories?

surely a nobel prize would be awarded to Matthew McCullough and Gian Giudice if their predictions on photons are bourne out.

since the purpose of this theory is to offer an explanation with no new particles

how does this impact supersymmetry?

i.e is clockwork theory compatible with all the new additional particles SUSY requires?

and since a major motivation of supersymmetry is to solve the naturalness problem

it seems nature has chosen something else entirely

how does the clockwork theory reconcile with

A Clockwork Theory

Gian F. Giudice, Matthew McCullough

(Submitted on 20 Oct 2016)

The clockwork is a mechanism for generating light particles with exponentially suppressed interactions in theories which contain no small parameters at the fundamental level. We develop a general description of the clockwork mechanism valid for scalars, fermions, gauge bosons, and gravitons. This mechanism can be implemented with a discrete set of new fields or, in its continuum version, through an extra spatial dimension. In both cases the clockwork emerges as a useful tool for model-building applications. Notably, the continuum clockwork offers a solution to the Higgs naturalness problem, which turns out to be the same as in linear dilaton duals of Little String Theory. We also elucidate the similarities and differences of the continuum clockwork with large extra dimensions and warped spaces. All clockwork models, in the discrete and continuum, exhibit novel phenomenology with a distinctive spectrum of closely spaced resonances.
