In multiscale and topcolor-assisted models of walking technicolor, relatively light spin-one technihadrons ρT and ωT exist and are expected to decay as ρT → W πT, ZπT and ωT → γπT. For MρT ≃ 200GeV and MπT ≃ 100GeV, these processes have cross sections in the picobarn range in ¯ pp colisions at the Tevatron and about 10 times larger at the Large Hadron Collider. We demonstrate their detectability with simulations appropriate to Run II conditions at the Tevatron.

Can a light technipion be discovered at the Tevatron if it decays to two gluons
Abstract In multiscale and topcolor-assisted models of walking technicolor, light, spin-one technihadrons can exist with masses of a few hundred GeV; they are expected to decay as ρ T → Wπ T . For MExpand

Collider phenomenology of technihadrons in the technicolor straw man model
We discuss the phenomenology of the lightest SU(3)C singlet and non-singlet technihadrons in the Straw Man Model of low-scale technicolor (TCSM). The technihadrons are assumed to be those arising inExpand

Production of a neutral scalar associated with a photon at the LHC in the topcolor-assisted technicolor model

Two Scale Technicolor
Abstract Walking technicolor theories naturally have fermions belonging to different technicolor representations and, therefore, at least two distinct energy scales below 1 TeV. We study a simplifiedExpand
Topcolor assisted technicolor
A condensate, tt, arising from O(TeV) scale “topcolor”, in addition to technicolor (and ETC) may naturally explain the gauge hierarchy, the large top quark mass, and contains a rich system ofExpand

Spontaneously broken technicolor and the dynamics of virtual vector technimesons.
This work proposes spontaneously breaking technicolor, thus liberating techniquarks and suppressing large resonance contributions to the electroweak [ital S] parameter, and proposes a Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model with additional interactions. Expand

It is argued that top-color-assisted technicolor provides a dynanamical explanation for electroweak and flavor symmetry breaking and for the large mass of the top quark without unnatural fine-tuning and a class of models realizing this scenario are exhibited. Expand
Self-breaking technicolor
Abstract We propose a scenario in which the electroweak symmetry is spontaneously broken by an SU(4) technicolor gauge interaction which also manages to break itself completely. The technicolor gaugeExpand
Topcolor: top quark condensation in a gauge extension of the standard model
Abstract We describe a color embedding, SU(3) c →SU(3) 1 ×SU(3) 2 , that is designed to break electroweak symmetries through top quark condensation. The minimal scheme of Bardeen, Hill and LindnerExpand
Chiral hierarchies and flavor-changing neutral currents in hypercolor.
Dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking in asymptotically free theories with a slowly running coupling is analyzed, finding that in hypercolor theories this behavior generates sufficiently large fermion masses for a higher value of M than naively expected. Expand
