A bstractOne of the most challenging hurdles to the construction of realistic composite Higgs models is the generation of Yukawa couplings for the Standard Model fermions. This problem can be successfully addressed in approximate conformal theories that admit a marginally relevant mixing between composite fermionic operators and the SM fermions. I argue that SU(3) gauge theories with light Dirac flavors in the fundamental representation feature all the ingredients under theoretical control…
