This is a technical (may be trivial?) question about this sigma scalar field advertised by Chamseddine and Connes to improve the electroweak vacuum stability involved by the weak mass of the already found Higgs-like particle.

Is it a scalar or a pseudo scalar field?

(motivation: I was looking for a possible connection with Majoron models)

  • $\begingroup$ The undiscovered scalar field is supposed to mix with the Higgs field. Can a scalar field mix with a pseudoscalar field? $\endgroup$ – Peter Shor Jul 13 '13 at 11:43
  • $\begingroup$ You have a habit of asking rambling 'philosophical' questions and then peppering them with weakly related technical questions. This is very bad form, since the whole point of StackExchange is to figure out the best answer to a single answerable question. I am voting to put this question on hold until you decide which of your two questions is the question you want answered. $\endgroup$ – user1504 Jul 13 '13 at 16:15

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, much better. I don't think I can remove my close vote but I think the question is fine now. $\endgroup$ – user1504 Jul 13 '13 at 18:05
