Triplicated trinification

S. Willenbrock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Gauge-coupling unification is just as successful in the standard model with six Higgs doublets as it is in the minimal supersymmetric standard model. However, the gauge couplings unify at 1014 GeV, which yields rapid proton decay in the SU(5) model. I propose that the grand-unified gauge group is instead SU(3)c × SU(3)L × SU(3)R, in which baryon number is conserved by the gauge interactions.
