We present ongoing investigations of a four-dimensional lattice field theory with four massless reduced staggered fermions coupled through an SU(4)-invariant fourfermion interaction. As in previous studies of four-fermion and Higgs–Yukawa models with different lattice fermion discretizations, we observe a strong-coupling phase in which the system develops a mass gap without breaking any lattice symmetry. This symmetric strong-coupling phase is separated from the symmetric weak-coupling phase by a narrow region of four-fermi coupling in which the system exhibits long-range correlations.
