It has been a long dream that the current human size is not so special. It will be business as usual after a scale transformation.
Scale Transformation The weight a unit area of bone could sustain has to change, too.
Scale transformation in QFT In high energy, the masses of all particles may be ignored and a scale invariant theory will emerge. Fundamental particle masses will break scale symmetry From studying scale invariant QFT, like massless free field, physicists found the theory is invariant under Minkowski space inversion I From translation Twe can generate anew symmetry. Special conformal transformation
Special Conformal Transformation Conformal group: Transformations that preserve the form of the metric up to a factor. It preserve the angle between two 4 vectors It includes Poincare transformations, scale transformation and …
It is widely believed that unitary interacting scale invariant theories are always invariant under the full conformal group. (only proven in 2D) The properties of a scale invariant theory are usually determined by a set of operators which is eigenfunctions of the scaling operator D. Conformal invariance severely restricts the two point function of these operators. They are not eigenfunction of mass operator P 2. They have a continuous spectrum. S. Coleman et al have shown that under some conditions, a scale invariant theory is also comformally invariant (including all renormalizable field theory)
Field theories generally exhibit scale invariant UV fixed point (often free) and scale invariant IR fixed point (often trivial, meaning non-interacting). What if the IR fixed point is non-trivial? In QFT, it is more complicated due to the presence of renormalization scale. The coupling constant depends on μ. For dimensionless g we get a dimensionful parameter Λ. Scale invariance is broken.Dimensional transmutation unless ……. at some pointFixed Point At fixed point, scale invariance is recovered.
For an SU(3) gauge theory with N F massless Dirac fermion Two loop β function has a non-trivial zero.
UV IR non-trivial IR fixed point This asymptotic free gauge theory with massless fermions has a Banks-Saks (BS) Model Scale invariance
BZ ModelDimensional transmutation Scale invariant theory
BZ Model Scale invariant theory If it becomes strong interacting near IR fixed point, massless fermions operators which are eigenfunctions of scale transformation D unparticles Integrate out degrees of freedom which is usually of order They will stay since they have continuous spectra. O U is of dimension d u
Unparticle propagator Scale invariance almost determines unparticle propagator completely. Scale invariance dictates the left scale with dimension 2 d U. This is identified as the phase space factor for n massless final particles. Unparticle with dimension d U looks like a non-integer number d U of particles.
take time order and Fourier transformation The usual factor for a normal field operator well defined for negative P 2 The cut has to chosen at positive timelike P 2. Unparticles have continuous spectra of masses. For non-integer d U there is a cut in the space of P 2. The cut could be seen as a combination of continuous poles.
This is really no surprise since unparticle has continuous mass spectrum.

Unparticles are a hidden sector, like heavenly god They are so unlike us, normal, earthly particles. Seeing them needs to be so rare that it’s called a miracle.
To increase its importance in our earthly life and to teach us his message, God needs an incarnation, ie. becoming a human form. Unparticles needs to be given SM gauge quantum numbers. That miracle still doesn’t happen everyday means that scale invariance needs to be broken in the low energy and will manifest itself as energy gets higher.
Scale invariance most likely will be broken anyway. P. Fox, A. Rajaraman and Y. Shirman PRD 2007 The scale invariance supposedly will be broken at conformal window For the window to be not too narrow, Nonrenormalizable couplings will be suppressed. Unparticles will be unaccessible.

However, we don’t need non-renormalizable terms to access unparticle in case they are incarnated, ie. has SM quantum number. Imagine the following scenario: Make sure we didn’t see unparticle until LHC The conformal window is about two degrees of magnitude Non-renormalizable interaction could be ignored. We ask the same question Howard asked: How does a SM flavored or colored unparticle look like in collider?
Two hurdles to overcome: How do we introduce scale invariance breaking effects? How do we flavor or color a unparticle?
How do we introduce scale invariance breaking effects? Parameterize the breaking with an infrared cutoff.
Parameterize the breaking with an infrared cutoff m. It reduced to Georgi’s unparticle propagator as and reduced to particle propagator with mass m as
How do we flavor or color a unparticle? Gauge interaction of unparticles
How do we flavor or color a unparticle? Gauge interaction of unparticles The unparticle propagator naively will imply a non-local Lagrangian: For gauge symmetry, insert a Wilson Line Vertex of a Gluon coupled to two unparticles.

Option II My suggestion is to use the representation of unparticle as bulk field in extra dimensional model
The unparticle propagator contains a cut for timelike P. A cut line can be decomposed into a collection of point poles with the gap goes to zero! An unparticle may correspond to a collection of particles!
Scale invariance It suggests a collection of non-interacting particles created by operator O with continuous mass distribution. Start with a discrete form: mass gap Scaling
Kaluza-Klein Modes of Bulk Field Bulk Fields contains Kaluza-Klein (KK) States Ψ n with wavefunctions: due to periodicity. The extra-dimension wave number E-p relation KK states look like having 4D masses ……. Towers of particles appear in extra dimensional models.
Kaluza-Klein Modes of Bulk Field ……. Non-compact extra dimensions gives towers of particles with continuous mass distribution. Assume only deconstructed unparticle see the non-compact extra dimension. Even gravity won’t see it. Or the gravity is localized! RSII
Assume that density of states For m extra dimensions Density of states is proportional to the hyper sphere shell: ADD realization W.Y. Keung Consider ADD with m extra dimensions and a bulk scalar field is a KK state
