We study the chiral properties of an SU(3) gauge theory with N{f} massless Dirac fermions in the fundamental representation when N{f} is increased from 2 to 6. For N{f}=2, our lattice simulations lead to a value of psi psi/F{3}, where F is the Nambu-Goldstone-boson decay constant and psi psi is the chiral condensate, which agrees with the measured QCD value. For N{f}=6, this ratio shows significant enhancement, presaging an even larger enhancement anticipated as N{f} increases further, toward… Expand
