  • 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 have led to viable models and mechanisms that are consistent with current experimental data. Many of these schemes feature a privileged role for the top quark, and third generation, and are natural in the context of theories of extra space dimensions at the weak scale. We review various models and… CONTINUE READING
