ABSTRACT A possible explanation for the appearance of light fermions and Higgs bosons on the four-dimensional domain wall is proposed. The mechanism of light particle trapping is accounted for by a strong self-interaction of five-dimensional pre-quarks. We obtain the low-energy effective action which exhibits the invariance under the so called \tau-symmetry. Then we find a set of vacuum solutions which break that symmetry and the five-dimensional translational invariance. One type of those vacuum solutions gives rise to the domain wall formation with consequent trapping of light massive fermions and Higgs-like bosons as well as massless sterile scalars, the so-called branons. The induced relations between low-energy couplings for Yukawa and scalar field interactions allow to make certain predictions for light particle masses and couplings themselves, which might provide a signature of the higher dimensional origin of particle physics at future experiments. The manifest translational symmetry breaking, eventually due to some gravitational and/or matter fields in five dimensions, is effectively realized with the help of background scalar defects. As a result the branons acquire masses, whereas the ratio of Higgs and fermion (presumably top-quark) masses can be reduced towards the values compatible with the present-day phenomenology. Since the branons do not couple to fermions and the Higgs bosons do not decay into branons, the latter ones are essentially sterile and stable, what makes them the natural candidates for the dark matter in the Universe.

    ABSTRACT: In this work we present a refined method for the localization of spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ fermions on the 5D braneworld paradigm. We begin by proposing a more natural ansatz for the Yukawa coupling in the 5D bulk fermionic action, that guarantees the localization of the ground states for the 4D fermions with right or left chirality. Furthermore, we show that the fermion ground states localization allow us to show the absence of tachyonic modes in the left and right-chiral Kaluza-Klein mass spectrum. More precisely, we show that localization of gravity in the 5D braneworld implies the localization of the spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ fermions.

    ABSTRACT: Nonlinear SUSY approach to preparation of quantum systems with pre-planned spectral properties is reviewed. Possible multidimensional extensions of Nonlinear SUSY are described. The full classification of ladder-reducible and irreducible chains of SUSY algebras in one-dimensional QM is given. Emergence of hidden symmetries and spectrum generating algebras is elucidated in the context of Nonlinear SUSY in one- and two-dimensional QM.

    ABSTRACT: We briefly review the mechanism of fermion localization on a domain wall (“thick brane”) generated by a topologically nontrivial vacuum configuration of scalar fields. We propose an extension of the scalar field coupling to fermions that endows the fermions with an axial mass. In the case of several flavors and fermion generations, this extension can lead to the appearance of the Standard Model Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix. We also consider a model with two scalar doublets that ensures an additional mechanism of CP-parity violation.
