Title Fermion Mass Hierarchy in Grand Gauge-Higgs Unification with Localized Gauge Kinetic Terms
Abstract Grand gauge-Higgs unification of five dimensional SU(6) gauge theory on an orbifold S^1/Z_2 with localized gauge kinetic terms is discussed.The Standard model (SM) fermions on one of the boundaries and some massive bulk fermions coupling to the SM fermions on the boundary are introduced, so that they respect an SU(5) symmetry structure.The SM fermion masses including top quark are reproduced by mild tuning the bulk masses and parameters of the localized gauge kinetic terms.Higgs potential analysis shows that the electroweak symmetry breaking occurs by introducing additional bulk fermions in simplified representations.The localized gauge kinetic terms enhance the magnitude of the compactification scale, which helps Higgs boson mass large.Indeed the observed Higgs boson mass 125 GeV is obtained.
