Minimal Walking Technicolour, the Top Mass and Precision Electroweak Measurements

  title={Minimal Walking Technicolour, the Top Mass and Precision Electroweak Measurements},
  author={Nick Evans and Francesco Sannino},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology},
We consider a minimal technicolour theory with two techniflavours in the adjoint representation of an SU(2) technicolour gauge group which has been argued to feature walking dynamics. We show how to naturally embed this theory in an extended technicolour model capable of generating the top quark mass. We investigate the precision constraints and conclude that such models, in the light of the most recent precision data fit, are not ruled out.

Dark Majorana particles from the minimal walking technicolor theory

We investigate the possibility of a dark matter candidate emerging from a minimal walking technicolor theory. In this case, techniquarks as well as technigluons transform under the adjoint

Gauge coupling unification via a technicolor model

We show that the recently proposed minimal walking technicolor theory together with a small modification of the standard model fermionic matter content leads to an excellent degree of unification of

Minimal walking technicolor: Setup for collider physics

Different theoretical and phenomenological aspects of the minimal and nonminimal walking technicolor theories have recently been studied. The goal here is to make the models ready for collider

Minimal supersymmetric technicolor

We introduce novel extensions of the Standard Model featuring a supersymmetric technicolor sector. First we consider $\mathcal{N}=4 $ Super Yang–Mills which breaks to $\mathcal{N}=1$ via the

Dynamical Electroweak Symmetry Breaking at the LHC on Supercomputers and in the Sky (Asymmetric Dark Matter)

I briefly review the basic challenges and virtues of models breaking the electroweak symmetry dynamically. I will then introduce the (ultra) minimal walking technicolor models whose construction has

This work consists of an overview part and three research papers. The subject of this work is a class of models for dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, and new generations of fermionic matter.

Technicolor and Beyond: Unification in Theory Space

I will briefly review the salient features of models of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking together with the traditional extensions needed to provide masses to the standard model fermions in

The Electroweak Phase Transition in Nearly Conformal Technicolor

We examine the temperature-dependent electroweak phase transition in extensions of the standard model in which the electroweak symmetry is spontaneously broken via strongly coupled, nearly conformal
