Postmodern Technicolor

  title={Postmodern Technicolor},
  author={T. Appelquist and J. Terning and L. Wijewardhana},
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… CONTINUE READING
