Chiral symmetry of QCD with twelve light flavors

We study QCD with twelve light flavors at intermediate values of the bare lattice coupling. We contrast the results for the order parameter with different theoretical models motivated by the physics

An elementary introduction to the study of gauge theories coupled to fermions with many degrees of freedom, candidates for non-perturbative extensions of the Higgs sector of the standard model.

Strong dynamics, composite Higgs and the conformal window

We review recent progress in the lattice investigations of near-conformal non-abelian gauge theories relevant for dynamical symmetry breaking and model building of composite Higgs models. The

Extreme technicolor & the walking critical temperature

We map the phase diagram of gauge theories of fundamental interactions in the flavor-temperature plane using chiral perturbation theory to estimate the relation between the pion decaying constant and

Ultraviolet extension of a model with dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking by both top-quark and technifermion condensates

We construct and analyze an ultraviolet extension of a model in which electroweak symmetry breaking is due to both technifermion and top-quark condensates. The model includes dynamical mechanisms for

Infrared evolution and phase structure of a gauge theory containing different fermion representations

We study the evolution of an asymptotically free vectorial SU(N) gauge theory from the ultraviolet to the infrared and the resultant phase structure in the general case in which the theory contains

Exploring the conformal window: SU(2) gauge theory on the lattice

We study the SU(2) gauge theory on the lattice with different numbers of fermions in the fundamental representation of the gauge group to explore the gauge theory phase diagram. We find evidence for

Strong conformal dynamics at the LHC and on the lattice

Conformal technicolor is a paradigm for new physics at the LHC that may solve the problems of strong electroweak symmetry breaking for quark masses and precision electroweak data. We give explicit

Phase Diagram of Strongly Interacting Theories

We summarize the phase diagrams of SU, SO and Sp gauge theories as function of the number of flavors, colors, and matter representation as well as the ones of phenomenologically relevant chiral gauge



Lattice study of the conformal window in QCD-like theories.

The extent of the conformal window for an SU(3) gauge theory with N{f} Dirac fermions in the fundamental representation is studied to present lattice evidence that the infrared behavior is governed by a fixed point.

Scales of chiral symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics

Computer simulations indicate that the range of the force responsible for chiral symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics is relatively short, independent of confinement, and depends strongly on

On-shell improved lattice gauge theories

By means of a spectrum conserving transformation, we show that one of the 3 coefficients in Symanzik's improved action can be chosen freely, if only spectral quantities (masses of stable particles,

Remarks on the Chiral Phase Transition in Chromodynamics

The phase transition restoring chiral symmetry at finite temperatures is considered in a linear $\ensuremath{\sigma}$ model. For three or more massless flavors, the perturbative
