Z' from SU(6)$\times$SU(2)_h GUT, Wjj anomaly and Higgs boson mass bound

By Jihn E. Kim and Seodong Shin


A general electroweak scale $Z'$ is applied in a supersymmetric SU(6)$\timesSU(2)_h$ grand unification model, to have a $\Z_6$ for the hexality. We briefly show that there cannot exist any baryonic U(1)$'_B$ in any subgroup of E$_6$. Any effect that requires sizable $Z'$ couplings to quarks like the reported Wjj anomaly of CDF, if observed, implies a substantial $Z'$ coupling to leptons or Higgs doublets. The kinetic mixing considered in a supersymmetric model from E$_6$ is restricted by the gauge coupling unification and neutrino mixing. The mass of $Z'$ is strongly constrained by the electroweak $\rho_0$ parameter. We conclude that $Z'$ mass much above 10 TeV is favored by considering the neutrino mixing and proton decay constraint in supersymmetric models. In this sense, the CDF $Wjj$ anomaly cannot be fitted to any electroweak model descending from E$_6$. Furthermore, if $Z'$ is found at several hundred GeV, any grand unification group embedded in E$_6$ such as SU(6)$\times$SU(2), SO(10), SU(5)$\times$U(1), SU(5), SU(4)$\times$SU(4), and SU(3)$^3$, needs fine-tuned gauge couplings. We also discuss the U(1)$'$ effect on the tree level mass of the lightest MSSM Higgs boson.Comment: 1 figure, 6 page
