De Sitter covariant gauge theory in grand unification


  • Lorenzo C. Chan ⋅ PH National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines Diliman


We discuss an alternate SO(10) theory of grand unification in de Sitter space such that a residual SU(5)xU(1) theory is obtained in ordinary space time. This theory predicts the fust set of scalars involved in spontaneous breaking of SU(5)xU(1) into SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) and accommodates the results of standard SU(5), including massless neutrinos. The scalars appear as gauge fields in the de Sitter theory.
