# Lectures on Technicolor and Compositeness

@article{Chivukula2000LecturesOT, title={Lectures on Technicolor and Compositeness}, author={R Sekhar Chivukula}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2000} }

Lecture 1 provides an introduction to dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking. Lectures 2 and 3 give an introduction to compositeness, with emphasis on effective lagrangians, power-counting, and the 't Hooft anomaly-matching conditions.

### A Duality as a Theory for the Electroweak Interactions

- Physics
- 2002

We present a model based on a SU(2) confining theory which is dual to the standard model. This duality allows to calculate the electroweak mixing angle and the Higgs boson mass. Possible tests of…

### Strong dynamics, composite Higgs and the conformal window

- Physics
- 2016

We review recent progress in the lattice investigations of near-conformal non-abelian gauge theories relevant for dynamical symmetry breaking and model building of composite Higgs models. The…

### The electroweak symmetry breaking riddle

- Physics
- 2010

I present a concise review of the Higgs problem which plays a central role in particle physics today. The Higgs of the minimal Standard Model is so far just a conjecture that needs to be verified or…

### Lattice studies of quantum chromodynamics-like theories with many fermionic degrees of freedom

- PhysicsPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
- 2011

An elementary introduction to the study of gauge theories coupled to fermions with many degrees of freedom, candidates for non-perturbative extensions of the Higgs sector of the standard model.

### Tasi 2009 lectures: The Higgs as a Composite Nambu-Goldstone Boson

- Physics
- 2010

This is an introduction to theories where the Higgs is a composite Nambu-Goldstone boson of a new strongly-interacting dynamics not much above the weak scale. A general discussion is presented based…

### Lectures on Walking Technicolor, Holography, and Gauge/Gravity Dualities

- Physics
- 2010

Dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking is an appealing, strongly coupled alternative to the weakly coupled models based on an elementary scalar field developing a vacuum expectation value. In…

### Muon anomalous magnetic moment constrains models with excited leptons

- Physics
- 2001

We explore the possibility of the existence of excited leptons in the light of recent data on muon $g - 2$ from BNL. We have been able to put stringent bounds on the relevant parameter space.

### The Electroweak Theory

- PhysicsIntroduction to the Standard Model and Beyond
- 2021

After a short essay on the current state of particle physics, the author reviews the antecedents of the modern picture of the weak and electromagnetic interactions and then undertakes a brief survey…

### Beyond the standard model: Expectations at the LHC

- Physics
- 2004

In this talk, I review the main motivations for expecting new physics at the TeV energy scale, that will be explorable at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.

### Ineffective Supersymmetry: Electroweak Symmetry Breaking from Extra Dimensions

- Physics
- 2001

Recently, a mechanism for electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) was discussed, in which the scale of EWSB is set by the scale of an additional dimension R ~ Tev^-1. The mechanism involves…
