Higgs field from brane and dilaton.


I discuss the formulation of Yang-Mills-Higgs system in gauge-invariant variables a la Faddeev, Niemi, Chernodub. Then model is derived by Kaluza-Klein reduction from higher-dimensional gravity with 3-brane. This derivation constrains some parameters of the theory and suggests that modulus of the Higgs field may be associated with units of length and thus hidden in the metric tensor (or dilaton). One more please note the unusual time of this talk.
