Walking technicolor and the Zbb vertex
Abstract A slowly running technicolor coupling will affect the size of non-oblique corrections to the Zb b vertex from extended technicolor dynamics. We show that, while “walking technicolor” reducesExpand
Non-oblique corrections in extended technicolor theory
We study radiative corrections to the Zbb vertex generated by the ETC gauge bosons, “diagonal” as well as sideways. The non-oblique corrections are generally large in a realistic ETC model, althoughExpand
Current bounds on technicolor with scalars
Abstract Technicolor with scalars is the simplest dynamical symmetry breaking model and one in which the predicted values of many observables may be readily calculated. This Letter applies currentExpand
The oblique corrections from the diagonal ETC interaction
Abstract We study the effect of the diagonal extended technicolor(ETC) gauge boson on the oblique correction parameters. It is shown that the T parameter is unacceptably large when the Zbb vertexExpand
Topcolor assisted technicolor
A condensate, tt, arising from O(TeV) scale “topcolor”, in addition to technicolor (and ETC) may naturally explain the gauge hierarchy, the large top quark mass, and contains a rich system ofExpand
Strong extended technicolour interactions and the Zbb̄ vertex
Abstract LEP precision measurements of the Zb b vertex coupling are sufficiently accurate to see the non-oblique corrections from the heavy gauge boson responsible for the large top mass in standardExpand
Technifermion representations and precision electroweak constraints
Abstract We discuss the selection of fermion representations in technicolor models with a view toward minimizing technicolor contributions to the precision electroweak S parameter. We present andExpand
Virtual corrections on the Zbb vertex from charged PGBs and the new electroweak data
In the one-generation technicolour model, the one-loop virtual corrections on the Zbb vertex from the P+or- and P8+or- can be rather large; the shift delta Rb=(Rb-RbSM)/RbSM in the range of 0-9.6% inExpand
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
Possible explanation of the Zbb vertex anomaly in one-family technicolor models.
It is shown that in the one-family technicolor model recently proposed by the authors all the {ital S, {ital T}, and {ital U} parameters can be consistent with the experimental bounds while the observed anomaly of {ital R}{sub {ital b}} is naturally explained. Expand
