Unification in AdS5 via Deconstruction

Dr. Hyung Do Kim (Ohio State University)


Running of gauge couplings in AdS5 is examined using deconstruction. The running is logarithmic even in AdS5 on the contrary to the expectation of power law and the predictability is maintained. Warped extra dimension allows us to have TeV scale new particles (Kaluza-Klein states) and to have a unification at high energy scale. Recently developed idea of deconstruction shows the nice feature of warped gauge theory clearly.
