We present lattice simulation results corresponding to an SU(2) pure gauge theory defined on the orbifold space E_4 x I_1, where E_4 is the four-dimensional Euclidean space and I_1 is an interval, with the gauge symmetry broken to a U(1) subgroup at the two ends of the interval by appropriate boundary conditions. We demonstrate that the U(1) gauge boson acquires a mass from a Higgs mechanism. The mechanism is driven by two of the extra-dimensional components of the five-dimensional gauge fielddoi:10.1016/j.nuclphysb.2007.01.023 fatcat:n74fdj4acra7vil6yvzqx5423y
