Abstract

By dimensional reduction of pure gauge theories (with gauge group G) over a compact coset space S/R, one obtains four-dimensional theories where scalar fields and a symmetry breaking potential appear naturally. We present a complete analysis (including the fermion sector) of all unified models with simple G which are spontaneously broken to SU3 × U1, and which can be obtained by this technique with the added restriction that S ⊂ G. Such models only exist when G is an exceptional group; however, the surviving fermions do not have the correct quantum numbers. The paper also provides an exhaustive list of SU3 embeddings in the exceptional groups.
