abstract

  • A new theory makes testable predictions: (1) Higgs fields have an unconventional equation of motion. (2) Fermions have a second-order coupling to gauge fields. (3) Fermion propagators are modified at high energy. (4) There are new scalar bosons which are supersymmetric partners of spin 1/2 fermions. (5) Since W-bosons gravitate differently from fermions and massless gauge bosons, there is a very small violation of the equivalence principle. Other features of the theory have implications for cosmology, including the values of cosmological parameters, a mechanism for scale-invariant density fluctuations, and a candidate for dark matter.
