A Relation between the Scales of Weak and Strong Interactions?

  • Christof Wetterich
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 50)


I explore the possibility that long distance physics determines the Fermi scale independently of the precise parameters of the short distance scalar potential. Then the ratio between the scales of weak and strong interactions would become predictable.
