In this note we examine the properties of deconstructed Higgsless models for the case of a fermion whose SU(2) properties arise from delocalization over many sites of the deconstructed lattice. We derive expressions for the correlation functions and use these to establish a generalized consistency relation among correlation functions. We discuss the form of the W boson wavefunction and show that if the probability distribution of the delocalized fermions is appropriately related to the W…

Deconstructed Higgsless models with one-site delocalization
In this note we calculate the form of electroweak corrections in deconstructed Higgsless models for the case of a fermion whose weak properties arise from two adjacent $SU(2)$ groups on the
Multigauge-boson vertices and chiral Lagrangian parameters in Higgsless models with ideal fermion delocalization
Higgsless models with fermions whose $SU(2)$ properties are ``ideally delocalized,'' such that the fermion's probability distribution is appropriately related to the $W$ boson wave function, have
Unitarity and Bounds on the Scale of Fermion Mass Generation
Author(s): Chivukula, RS; Christensen, ND; Coleppa, B; Simmons, EH | Abstract: The scale of fermion mass generation can, as shown by Appelquist and Chanowitz, be bounded from above by relating it to
A Three site Higgsless model
We analyze the spectrum and properties of a highly deconstructed Higgsless model with only three sites. Such a model contains sufficient complexity to incorporate interesting physics issues related
Ideal fermion delocalization in five dimensional gauge theories
We discuss ideal delocalization of fermions in a bulk $SU(2)\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}SU(2)\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}U(1)$ Higgsless model with a flat or warped extra dimension. So as

Patterns of Custodial Isospin Violation from a Composite Top
In this paper we consider the effects of top-quark compositeness on the electroweak parameters T^ and S^ and the ZbLbL coupling. We do so by using an effective field theory analysis to identify
One Loop Corrections to the Rho Parameter in Higgsless Models
A large class of deconstructed Higgsless model is known to satisfy the tree-level experimental bounds on the electroweak precision parameters. In particular, an approximate custodial symmetry insures
Fermiophobic gauge boson phenomenology in 221 models
Models with extra gauge symmetry are well-motivated extensions of the Standard Model. In this paper, we study an extended gauge model with a heavy neutral gauge boson $Z'$ which is fermiophobic.
If no Higgs then what?
A bstractIn the absence of a Higgs boson, the perturbative description of the Standard Model ceases to make sense above a TeV. Heavy spin-1 fields coupled to W and Z bosons can extend the validity of

We calculate the form of the corrections to the electroweak interactions in the class of Higgsless models which can be deconstructed to a chain of SU(2) gauge groups adjacent to a chain of U(1) gauge
Structure of corrections to electroweak interactions in Higgsless models
Recently, Higgsless models of electroweak symmetry breaking have been proposed. Based on compactified five-dimensional gauge theories, these models achieve unitarity of electroweak boson

Higgsless theory of electroweak symmetry breaking from warped space
We study a theory of electroweak symmetry breaking without a Higgs boson, recently suggested by Csaki et al. The theory is formulated in 5D warped space with the gauge bosons and matter fields
Curing the Ills of Higgsless models: The S parameter and unitarity
We consider various constraints on Higgsless models of electroweak symmetry breaking based on a bulk SU(2){sub L}xSU(2){sub R}xU(1){sub B-L} gauge group in warped space. First we show that the S
Low energy strong electroweak sector with decoupling.
It is conceivable that degenerate BESS has low mass spin-one states and gives quite visible signals at existing or forthcoming accelerators, and it is worthwhile to fully develop the model, together with its possible generalizations, and to study the expected phenomenology.

We examine the phenomenology of a warped 5-dimensional model based on SU(2)L× SU(2)R× U(1)B−L model which implements electroweak symmetry breaking through boundary conditions, without the presence of
