Conformal symmetry vs. chiral symmetry breaking in the SU(3) sextet model

We present new results for the SU(3) “sextet model” with two flavors transforming according to the two-index symmetric representation of the gauge group. The simulations are performed using

The running coupling of the minimal sextet composite Higgs model

A bstractWe compute the renormalized running coupling of SU(3) gauge theory coupled to Nf = 2 flavors of massless Dirac fermions in the 2-index-symmetric (sextet) representation. This model is of

Electroweak interactions and dark baryons in the sextet BSM model with a composite Higgs particle

The Electroweak interactions of a strongly coupled gauge theory are discussed with outlook beyond the Standard Model (BSM) under global and gauge anomaly constraints. The theory is built on a minimal

SU(3) sextet model with Wilson fermions

We present our final results for the SU(3) sextet model with the non-improved Wilson fermion discretization. We find evidence for several phases of the lattice model, including a bulk phase with

A new method for the beta function in the chiral symmetry broken phase

We describe a new method to determine non-perturbatively the beta function of a gauge theory using lattice simulations in the p-regime of the theory. This complements alternative measurements of the

Nearly Conformal Composite Higgs Model.

The phenomenology of the model is studied and the amount of tuning required to ensure consistency with current direct and indirect bounds on new physics is discussed, highlighting the role of the dilaton field.

Mass anomalous dimension in sextet QCD

We extend our previous study of the SU(3) gauge theory with N_f=2 flavors of fermions in the sextet representation of color. Our tool is the Schroedinger functional method. By changing the lattice

Dilaton Effective Field Theory

We review and extend recent studies of dilaton effective field theory (dEFT) that provide a framework for the description of the Higgs boson as a composite structure. We first describe the dEFT as

Spectroscopy of the BSM sextet model

As part of our ongoing lattice study of SU(3) gauge theory with two flavors of fermions in the two-index symmetric representation (the sextet model), we present the current status of the pseudoscalar

Glueball spectrum in a gauge theory with two dynamical scales

We investigate the glueball spectrum of a strongly coupled gauge theory with two dynamical scales. The main tool is the use of the gauge/gravity duality. The model we study has a known graviational

We report extended simulation results and their new analysis in two important gauge theories with twelve fermion flavors in the fundamental SU(3) color representation and two fermions in the sextet

Evidence for a conformal phase in SU(N) gauge theories

We discuss the existence of a conformal phase in SU(N) gauge theories in four dimensions. In this lattice study, we explore the model in the bare parameter space, varying the lattice coupling and

We extend our previous study of the SU(3) gauge theory with N_f=2 flavors of fermions in the sextet representation of color. Our tool is the Schroedinger functional method. By changing the lattice

Orientifold theory dynamics and symmetry breaking

We show that it is possible to construct explicit models of electroweak symmetry breaking in which the number of techniflavors needed to enter the conformal phase of the theory is small and weakly

Conformal or walking? Monte Carlo renormalization group studies of SU(3) gauge models with fundamental fermions

Strongly coupled gauge systems with many fermions are important in many phenomenological models. I use the 2-lattice matching Monte Carlo renormalization group method to study the fixed point

Spectrum of SU(2) lattice gauge theory with two adjoint Dirac flavours

An SU(2) gauge theory with two fermions transforming under the adjoint representation of the gauge group may appear conformal or almost conformal in the infrared. We use lattice simulations to study
