Gauge-Higgs Unification on the Lattice

F. Knechtli (Wuppertal)

The existence of extra spatial dimensions is theoretically appealing. Since the works of Kaluza and Klein the idea evolved to one of the possible extensions of the Standard Model of elementary particles that will be tested by the experiments of the LHC accelerator at CERN. In this talk the focus will be on Gauge-Higgs Unification scenarios where the Higgs particle is a relic of the extra dimensional gauge field components. Recent efforts to understand these models (both analytically and by using Monte Carlo simulations) by discretizing them on a Euclidean space-time lattice will be described.
