Mixed gluinos and sgluons from a new SU(3) gauge group

I study supersymmetric models in which the QCD gauge group is the remnant diagonal subgroup from the spontaneous breaking of an SU(3)×SU(3) gauge group at a multi-TeV scale. In renormalizable models

Top quark condensation from broken family symmetry

We investigate the vacuum alignment in a fully dynamical “moose” model which breaks electroweak symmetry with a top quark condensate and show how the prefered vacuum depends on the explicit masses of

One-loop helicity amplitudes for top quark pair production in Randall-Sundrum model

In this paper, we show how to calculate analytically the one-loop helicity amplitudes for the process $ q\bar{q} \to t\bar{t} $ induced by KK gluon, using the spinor helicity formalism. A minimal set

BOOTSTRAP OF THE SCALAR SECTOR IN TOP–ANTITOP SCATTERING AMPLITUDE

Based on the top-condensate model of Nambu and Bardeen et al., it is pointed out that a bootstrap of the scalar sector occurs in top–antitop scattering amplitude in that the ladder sum of Higgs pole

A model of quark and lepton compositeness

In the chiral SU(15) gauge theory presented here, the quarks and leptons are bound states (“prebaryons”) of massless preons. The Standard Model charges of the preons imply 3 generations of quarks and

Top-color-assisted supersymmetry

It is known that the supersymmetric flavor changing neutral current problem can be avoided if the squarks take the following mass pattern: namely, the first two generations with the same chirality

Massive color-octet bosons: bounds on effects in top-quark pair production

A critical survey of the existing direct and indirect constraints on massive spin-one color octets is presented. Since such new degrees of freedom appear in any extension of the color gauge group to

Renormalization-group equations and asymptotic conditions are used to obtain top-quark mass predictions. In the standard model with an explicit Higgs mechanism, our analysis becomes identical to the

FORMATION OF COMPOSITE HIGGS BOSONS FROM QUARK-ANTIQUARKS AT LOWER ENERGY SCALES

We study how the simple predictions of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model of composite Higgs bosons are modified when quark interactions more singular than the nonderivative four-quark interaction are

Is the t Quark Responsible for the Mass of W and Z Bosons

Based on the dynamical model having a large anomalous dimension γm≃2, we propose that the t quark condensate is responsible for the mass of W and Z bosons within the framework of the

Electroweak symmetry breaking by fourth-generation condensates and the neutrino spectrum.

A dynamical generalization of the seesaw mechanism is proposed based upon the BCS theory in which a neutrino condensate gives rise to right-handed-neutrino Majorana masses and all associated spin-zero bosons are composite.
