Abstract We construct a prototype of topcolor-assisted technicolor in which, although both top and bottom quarks acquire some mass from extended technicolor, strong U (1) couplings of technifermions are isospin symmetric and all gauge anomalies vanish. There is a mechanism for mixing between the light and heavy generations and there need be no very light pseudo-Goldstone bosons.

A NEW MODEL OF TOPCOLOR-ASSISTED TECHNICOLOR

- Physics

Abstract I present a model of topcolor-assisted technicolor that can have topcolor breaking of the desired pattern, hard masses for all quarks and leptons, mixing among the heavy and light… Expand

Anomalous Wtb Couplings and b → sγ in the Topcolor Assisted Technicolor Models

Using topcolour-assisted technicolour models, we give the anomalous Wb couplings arising from the exchange of the new gauge bosons (ETC gauge boson, colorons and Z') and calculate their contributions… Expand

Precision electroweak constraints on top-color assisted technicolor

- Physics
- 1996

Using precision electroweak data, we put limits on “natural” top-color assisted technicolor models. Generically the new U(1) gauge bosons in these models must have masses larger than roughly 2 TeV,… Expand

Anti-B-B Mixing Constrains Topcolor-Assisted Technicolor

- Physics

We argue that extended technicolor augmented with topcolor requires that all mixing between the third and the first two quark generations resides in the mixing matrix of left-handed down quarks.… Expand

Rc constrains topcolour-assisted technicolour models

We consider the Z → c branching ratio Rc in the context of topcolour-assisted technicolour (TC2) models. We find that the main corrections to Rc in TC2 models come from the neutral top-pion π0t and… Expand

We consider the contributions of the extra gauge boson Z' to the like sign τ production processes e−γ → e+(μ+)τ−τ−, induced by the tree-level flavor changing interactions. Since these rare production… Expand

Phenomenology of the top mass in realistic extended technicolor models

- Physics

Abstract Extended technicolor (ETC) theories typically require ETC gauge bosons lighter than of order 1 TeV, to perturbatively generate the t quark mass. We point out that explicit models of t − b… Expand

Abstract Walking technicolor theories naturally have fermions belonging to different technicolor representations and, therefore, at least two distinct energy scales below 1 TeV. We study a simplified… Expand

This work proposes spontaneously breaking technicolor, thus liberating techniquarks and suppressing large resonance contributions to the electroweak [ital S] parameter, and proposes a Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model with additional interactions. Expand

Scale-invariant hypercolor model and a dilaton.

- Physics, Medicine

A scale-invariant hypercolor model with a nontrivial ultraviolet fixed point having large anomalous dimension is proposed, which resolves the notorious flavor-changing neutral-current problem in hypercolor models and predicts a Nambu-Goldstone boson (dilaton) associated with the spontaneous breakdown of the scale invariance.

This paper discusses the prospects for making a renormalizable version of this ``top bootstrap'' scenario using a strongly coupled spontaneously broken gauge interaction, and argues that these models are somewhat similar to the extended technicolor models, but with a ``technicolor'' force, providing the mass-generation mechanism for the top quark.
