@article{Dietrich2005LightCH, title={Light composite Higgs boson from higher representations versus electroweak precision measurements: P}, author={D. Dietrich and Francesco Sannino and K. Tuominen}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2005} }

We investigate theories in which the technifermions in higher dimensional representations of the technicolor gauge group dynamically break the electroweak symmetry of the standard model. Somewhat surprisingly, for the two-index symmetric representation of the gauge group the lowest number of techniflavors needed to render the underlying gauge theory quasiconformal is two. This is exactly one doublet of technifermions with respect to the weak interactions promoting these theories to ideal… Expand

This paper investigates the properties of composite scalars made mainly of technifermions and finds that for realistic values of the gauge coupling, the scalars will not be narrow resonances, and concludes that unless the technicolor coupling at the E TC scale is unrealistically weak and the ETC coupling is very close to the critical curve, these light states will have large widths.
