  • A fifth force, of technicolor type, responsible for breaking the electroweak theory is an intriguing extension of the standard model. Recently new theories have been shown to feature walking dynamics for a very low number of techniflavors and are not ruled out by electroweak precision measurements. We identify the light degrees of freedom and construct the associated low energy effective theories. These can be used to study signatures and relevant processes in current and future experiments.
