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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

    Introduction to the Standard Model and Beyond

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

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

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
