Status of a minimal composite Higgs theory
We analyze three sets of gauge ensembles in our extended physics program of a particularly important BSM gauge theory with a fermion doublet in the two-index symmetric (sextet) representation of theExpand

Analysis of polymorphisms in 16 genes in type 1 diabetes that have been associated with other immune-mediated diseases
BackgroundThe identification of the HLA class II, insulin (INS), CTLA-4 and PTPN22 genes as determinants of type 1 diabetes (T1D) susceptibility indicates that fine tuning of the immune system isExpand

Triviality and the Higgs mass lower bound
In the minimal Standard Model, it is commonly believed that the Higgs mass cannot be too small, otherwise Top quark dynamics makes the Higgs potential unstable. Although this Higgs mass lower boundExpand

The deconfinement phase transition of Sp(2) and Sp(3) Yang-Mills theories in 2+1 and 3+1 dimensions
Abstract Some time ago, Svetitsky and Yaffe have argued that—if the deconfinement phase transition of a ( d +1)-dimensional Yang–Mills theory with gauge group G is second order—it should be in theExpand

Another weak first order deconfinement transition: three-dimensional SU(5) gauge theory
We examine the finite-temperature deconfinement phase transition of (2+1)-dimensional SU(5) Yang-Mills theory via non-perturbative lattice simulations. Unsurprisingly, we find that the transition isExpand

Chiral symmetry breaking in nearly conformal gauge theories
We present new results on chiral symmetry breaking in nearly conformal gauge theories with fermions in the fundamental representation of the SU(3) color gauge group. The number of fermion flavors isExpand

Exceptional confinement in G(2) gauge theory
Abstract We study theories with the exceptional gauge group G (2). The 14 adjoint “gluons” of a G (2) gauge theory transform as {3}, { 3 } and {8} under the subgroup SU (3), and hence have the colorExpand

How light can the higgs be
Abstract It is widely believed that, for a given Top mass, the Higgs mass has a lower bound: if mHiggs is too small, the Higgs vacuum is unstable due to Top dynamics. From vacuum instability, theExpand

Twelve massless flavors and three colors below the conformal window
We report new results for a frequently discussed gauge theory with twelve fermion flavors in the fundamental representation of the SU(3) color gauge group. The model, controversial with respect toExpand

Can the nearly conformal sextet gauge model hide the Higgs impostor
Abstract New results are reported from large scale lattice simulations of a frequently discussed strongly interacting gauge theory with a fermion flavor doublet in the two-index symmetric (sextet)Expand
