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.

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 lightExpand
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 contributionsExpand
Precision electroweak constraints on top-color assisted technicolor
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
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 andExpand
Electroweak chiral Lagrangian for a hypercharge-universal topcolor model
Abstract Electroweak chiral Lagrangian for a hypercharge-universal topcolor model is investigated. We find that the assignments of universal hypercharge improve the results obtained previously fromExpand
Collider phenomenology of technihadrons in the technicolor straw man model
We discuss the phenomenology of the lightest SU(3)C singlet and non-singlet technihadrons in the Straw Man Model of low-scale technicolor (TCSM). The technihadrons are assumed to be those arising inExpand
Production of the lightest neutral technipion at the First Muon Collider

Probing Topcolor-Assisted Technicolor Models from Like-Sign τ Pair Production in eγ Collisions
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 productionExpand
Phenomenology of the top mass in realistic extended technicolor models
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 − bExpand


Two Scale Technicolor
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 simplifiedExpand
Self-breaking technicolor
Abstract We propose a scenario in which the electroweak symmetry is spontaneously broken by an SU(4) technicolor gauge interaction which also manages to break itself completely. The technicolor gaugeExpand
Spontaneously broken technicolor and the dynamics of virtual vector technimesons.
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
Topcolor: top quark condensation in a gauge extension of the standard model
Abstract We describe a color embedding, SU(3) c →SU(3) 1 ×SU(3) 2 , that is designed to break electroweak symmetries through top quark condensation. The minimal scheme of Bardeen, Hill and LindnerExpand
Raising the sideways scale
Extended hypercolor theories have been plagued with inherent flavor-changing effects occurring above experimental levels. The problem may be alleviated in a scenario in which hyper-color interactionsExpand
Flavor conserving CP violation in invisible axion models
Abstract We estimate the size of CP violating effects in invisible axion models, using the techniques of effective field theories and effective chiral theories. We find, in particular, that theExpand
Scale-invariant hypercolor model and a dilaton.
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.

CP violation without elementary scalar fields
Dynamically broken gauge theories of electroweak interactions provide a natural mechanism for generating CP violation. Even if all vacuum angles are unobservable, strong CP violation is notExpand
