Mass Creation from Extra Dimensions


In this work we consider a mechanism for mass creation based on the periodicity condition dictated from the compactification of extradimensions. It is shown that the existence and the compactification of extradimensions are the origin for creating particle mass in ordinary 4-dimensional space-time. Mass of Higgs particles themselves would be also originated from the geometric topology of extradimensions.
