We present the minimal non-supersymmetric Grand Unified $SO(10)$ Model, which is compatible with all the phenomenological constraints. The Higgs sector, containing a real 54-plet, a complex 126-plet and a complex 10-plet breaks the symmetry to Standard Model via Pati-Salam symmetry with D-parity at an intermediate scale consistent with current neutrino data. Threshold correction introduced by...

In this talk, I will show the realization of U(1) hypercharges with two different formalisms, superconnection and noncommutative geometry(NCG). In both cases, the Standard Model hypercharges are derived instead of being assigned. This is a hint for the underlying relation between superconnection formalism and NCG formalism, both of which interpret the Higgs as a gauge field in the discrete...

The primary goal of any future hadron collider is to discover new physics (NP) associated with a high mass scale, $M$,
beyond the range of the LHC. In order to maintain the same {\it relative} mass reach for NP, $M/{\sqrt s}$, as $\sqrt s$
increases, Richter recently reminded us that the required integrated luminosity obtainable at future hadron colliders
(FHC) must grow rapidly, $\sim...

I will present the basics of the Hilbert series technique in the context of constructing group-invariant Lagrangians. This technique provides a fast way to calculate the number of operators of a specified mass dimension for a given field content, and is a useful cross check on more well-known group theoretical methods. In addition, at least when restricted to invariants without derivatives,...

We consider possible extensions of the standard model that are not only completely
asymptotically free, but are such that the UV fixed point is completely UV attractive. All
couplings flow towards a set of fixed ratios in the UV. Motivated by low scale unification,
semi-simple gauge groups with elementary scalars in various representations are
explored. The simplest model is a version of...

Dark sector states, uncharged under SM gauge interactions, can be invoked to explain neutrino masses or cosmic dark matter. These states may have baryon number violating interactions. We outline some aspects of phenomenology originating from such interactions. Possible signals at nucleon decay experiments or the LHC are discussed.
