Scalar field theory in the strong self-interaction limit    [PDF]

Marco Frasca
Standard Model with a classical conformal invariance holds the promise to give a better understanding of the hierarchy problem and could pave the way for beyond the standard model physics. So, we give here a mathematical treatment of a massless quartic scalar field theory with a strong self-coupling both classically and for quantum field theory. We use a set of classical solutions recently found and show that there exists an infinite set of infrared trivial scalar theories with a mass gap. Free particles have superimposed a harmonic oscillator set of states. The classical solution is displayed through a current expansion and the next-to-leading order quantum correction is provided. Application to the Standard Model would entail the existence of higher excited states of the Higgs particle and reduced decay rates to WW and ZZ that could be already measured.
