Description

Global and local Weyl invariant theories can solve the hierarchy problem and generate all mass scales spontaneously, initiated by a dynamical process of “inertial spontaneous symmetry breaking” that does not involve a potential. I will discuss how inflation readily occurs in a scale invariant version of Starobinsky (R2) inflation and how an hierarchy of mass scales may be generated, stable against both Standard Model and gravitational quantum corrections.
