  • 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 gauge bosons and technifermions are not confined by the technicolor force, but get large masses. Starting with a single technidoublet, one emerges with a complete standard model family of technifermions after the symmetry breaking is complete. This suggests a boad new avenue for model building.
