We investigate whether inclusion of dimension 6 terms in the Standard Model Lagrangian may cause the unification of the coupling constants at a scale comprised between 10(14) and 10(17) GeV. Particular choice of the dimension 6 couplings is motivated by the spectral action. Given the theoretical and phenomenological constraints, as well as recent data on the Higgs mass, we find that the unification is indeed possible, with a lower unification scale slightly favored.

Abstract

We investigate whether inclusion of dimension 6 terms in the Standard Model Lagrangian may cause the unification of the coupling constants at a scale comprised between 10(14) and 10(17) GeV. Particular choice of the dimension 6 couplings is motivated by the spectral action. Given the theoretical and phenomenological constraints, as well as recent data on the Higgs mass, we find that the unification is indeed possible, with a lower unification scale slightly favored.
