Oral Presentation Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model


Dr Gennady Kozlov (JINR)


We study the dark matter particle, the dark photon (DP), in the decay of the Higgs-like boson. The nature of dark matter is maintained through the hidden sector including the effects of breaking of the scale invariance. The model is based on the additional $U^{\prime}(1)$ gauge group associated with light DP.
The interaction between DP and quarks is mediated by the derivative of the scalar - the dilaton. The latter appears in the conformal sector which triggers the electroweak symmetry breaking.
Upper limits are set on the DP mass, the mixing strength between the standard photon and DP. The model does allow to estimate the DP mass with the value of 4.5 MeV. The maximal value of the scale invariance breaking constant is also reported.
