Minimal Walking Technicolour, the Top Mass and Precision Electroweak Measurements

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

Strong dynamics and electroweak symmetry breaking

Z boson propagator correction in technicolor theories with extended technicolor effects included

We calculate the Z boson propagator correction, as described by the S parameter, in technicolor theories with extended technicolor interactions included. Our method is to solve the Bethe-Salpeter

Extended technicolor models with two extended technicolor groups

We construct extended technicolor (ETC) models that can produce the large splitting between the masses of the $t$ and $b$ quarks without necessarily excessive contributions to the $\rho$ parameter or

Strong interactions in air showers

We study the role new gauge interactions in extensions of the standard model play in air showers initiated by ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays. Hadron-hadron events remain dominated by quantum

Ultraviolet extension of a model with dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking by both top-quark and technifermion condensates

We construct and analyze an ultraviolet extension of a model in which electroweak symmetry breaking is due to both technifermion and top-quark condensates. The model includes dynamical mechanisms for
