Grand unification of gauge couplings and fermionic representations remains an appealing proposal to explain the seemingly coincidental structure of the Standard Model. However, to realise the Standard Model at low energies, the unified symmetry group has to be partially broken by a suitable scalar potential in just the right way. The scalar potenti...

We propose that the electroweak and flavour quantum numbers of the Standard Model (SM) could be unified at high energies in an SU(4) × Sp(6)_{L}× Sp(6)_{R} anomaly-free gauge model. All the SM fermions are packaged into two fundamental fields, Ψ_{L} ∼ (4,6,1) and Ψ_{R} ∼ (4,1,6), thereby explaining the origin of three families of fermions. The SM Higgs...

Abstract : The quantum chromodynamics axion with a decay constant near the Grand Unification (GUT) scale has an ultralight mass near a neV. We show, however, that axion-like particles with masses near the keV–PeV range with GUT-scale decay constants are also well motivated in that they naturally arise from axiverse theories with dark c gauge groups...

Various theoretical considerations suggest that baryon number should be violated. Nucleon decay, which typically appears within the context of unified theories, would provide a definitive signature of baryon number violation. In this dissertation, we report on the search results for $p \rightarrow e^+X$, $p \rightarrow \mu^+$ (where $X$ is an invis...
