# Intersecting Brane Models of Particle Physics and the Higgs Mechanism

@article{Cremades2002IntersectingBM, title={Intersecting Brane Models of Particle Physics and the Higgs Mechanism}, author={Daniel Cremades and Luis E. Ib{\'a}{\~n}ez and Fernando G. Marchesano}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2002} }

We analyze a recently constructed class of D-brane theories with the fermion spectrum of the SM at the intersection of D6-branes wrapping a compact toroidal space. We show how the SM Higgs mechanism appears as a brane recombination effect in which the branes giving rise to U(2)_L \times U(1) recombine into a single brane related to U(1)_{em}. We also show how one can construct D6-brane models which respect some supersymmetry at every intersection. These are quasi-supersymmetric models of the… Expand
