We investigate the physical spectrum of vector-like SU(N) gauge theories with infrared coupling close to but above the critical value for a conformal phase transition. We use dispersion relations, the momentum dependence of the dynamical fermion mass and resonance saturation. We show that the second spectral function sum rule is substantially affected by the continuum contribution, allowing for a reduction of the axial vector - vector mass splitting with respect to QCD-like theories.

Spectrum of SU(2) gauge theory with two fermions in the adjoint representation
We present preliminary results of lattice simulations of SU(2) gauge theory with two Wilson fermions in the adjoint representation. This theory has recently attracted considerable attention becauseExpand
Higgs critical exponents and conformal bootstrap in four dimensions
A bstractWe investigate relevant properties of composite operators emerging in non-supersymmetric, four-dimensional gauge-Yukawa theories with interacting conformal fixed points within a preciseExpand
Phase diagrams of SU(N) gauge theories with fermions in various representations
We minimize the one-loop effective potential for SU(N) gauge theories including fermions with finite mass in the fundamental (F), adjoint (Adj), symmetric (S), and antisymmetric (AS) representations.Expand
Dynamic AdS/QCD and the spectrum of walking gauge theories
We present a simple AdS/QCD model in which the formation of the chiral condensate is dynamically determined. The gauge dynamics is input through the running of the quark bilinear’s anomalousExpand
Conformal Dynamics for TeV Physics and Cosmology
We introduce the topic of dynamical breaking of the electroweak symmetry and its link to unparticle physics and cosmology. The knowledge of the phase diagram of strongly coupled theories plays aExpand
Conformal windows of Sp(2N) and SO(N) gauge theories
We study the nonperturbative dynamics of nonsupersymmetric asymptotically free gauge theories with fermionic matter in distinct representations of the SO(N) and Sp(2N) gauge groups. We use differentExpand
The Electroweak Phase Transition in Nearly Conformal Technicolor
We examine the temperature-dependent electroweak phase transition in extensions of the standard model in which the electroweak symmetry is spontaneously broken via strongly coupled, nearly conformalExpand
Exploring Models for New Physics on the Lattice
Strongly-coupled gauge theories are an important ingredient in the construction of many extensions of the standard model, particularly for models of electroweak symmetry breaking in which the HiggsExpand
Studies of Conformal Behavior in Strongly Interacting Quantum Field Theories
Author(s): Gasbarro, Andrew | Abstract: In this dissertation, we present work towards characterizing various conformal and nearly conformal quantum field theories nonperturbatively using aExpand
Behavior of the S parameter in the crossover region between walking and QCD-like regimes of an SU(N) gauge theory
We consider a vectorial, confining SU(N) gauge theory with a variable number, N{sub f}, of massless fermions transforming according to the fundamental representation. Using the Schwinger-Dyson andExpand
