Using new insights into strongly coupled gauge theories arising from analytic calculations and lattice simulations, we explore a framework for technicolor model building that relies on a non-trivial infrared fixed point, and an essential role for QCD. Interestingly, the models lead to a simple relation between the electroweak scale and the QCD confinement scale, and to the possible existence of exotic leptoquarks with masses of several hundred GeV. Electroweak symmetry breaking and fermion mass… Expand

We point out that the flavor problem in theories with dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking can be effectively decoupled if the physics above the TeV scale is strongly conformal, and the… Expand

Determination of new electroweak parameters at the ILC – sensitivity to new physics

- Physics

We present a study of the sensitivity of the International Linear Collider (ILC) to electroweak parameters in the absence of a light Higgs boson. In particular, we consider those parameters that have… Expand

Holographic walking technicolor from D-branes

Abstract We investigate a model of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking via a dual gravitational description. The gravity dual is obtained by embedding a D 7 – D 7 ¯ pair of branes into a type IIB… Expand

A Higgslike Dilaton

We examine the possibility that the recently discovered 125 GeV higgs-like resonance actually corresponds to a dilaton: the Goldstone boson of scale invariance spontaneously broken at a scale f .… Expand

Perturbative corrections to technicolor

The full solution of technicolor (TC) Schwinger-Dyson equations should include radiative corrections induced by extended technicolor (ETC) (or other) interactions. We verify that when TC is embedded… Expand

Glueball spectrum in a gauge theory with two dynamical scales

A bstractWe investigate the glueball spectrum of a strongly coupled gauge theory with two dynamical scales. The main tool is the use of the gauge/gravity duality. The model we study has a known… Expand

Strong dynamics and electroweak symmetry breaking

The breaking of electroweak symmetry, and origin of the associated “weak scale,” vweak = 1/ q 2 √ 2GF = 175 GeV, may be due to a new strong interaction. Theoretical developments over the past decade… Expand

Abstract We address the problem of accounting for light neutrino masses in theories with dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking. We discuss this in the context of a class of (extended) technicolor… Expand
