Higgs, dark sector and the vacuum: From Nambu-Goldstone bosons to massive particles via the hydrodynamics of a doped vacuum

Fedi, Marco

Here the physical vacuum is treated as a superfluid, fundamental quantum scalar field, coinciding with dark energy and doped with particle dark matter, able to produce massive particles and interactions via a hydrodynamic reinterpretation of the Higgs mechanism. Here the Nambu-Goldstone bosons are circularly polarized phonons around the edge of the Brillouin zone of vacuum's quasi-lattice and they give mass to particles by triggering quantized vortices, whose dynamics reproduces any possible spin. Doped vortices also exert hydrodynamic forces which may correspond to fundamental interactions.
