Holographic technicolor model and dark matter
We investigate the strongly coupled minimal walking technicolor model (MWT) in the framework of a bottom-up holographic model, where the global $SU(4)$ symmetry breaks to $SO(4)$ subgroup. In theExpand
HIP-2012-04 Scalar Mediated Fermion Masses for Technicolor
This thesis begins by presenting the general features of technicolor models from a model building perspective. Next, a bosonic technicolor model, based on the Next-to-Minimal Walking TechnicolorExpand

This work consists of an overview part and three research papers. The subject of this work is a class of models for dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, and new generations of fermionic matter.Expand
Composite dark matter and Higgs
A bstractWe investigate the possibility that Dark Matter arises as a composite state of a fundamental confining dynamics, together with the Higgs boson. We focus on the minimal SU(4)×SU(4)/SU(4)Expand
Dark Matter constraints on composite Higgs models
A bstractIn composite Higgs models the pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone Boson (pNGB) nature of the Higgs field is an interesting alternative for explaining the smallness of the electroweak scale with respectExpand
Dark matter in (partially) composite Higgs models
A bstractWe construct composite and partially composite Higgs models with complex pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone (pNGB) dark matter states from four-dimensional gauge-Yukawa theories with stronglyExpand
A model for dark matter, naturalness and a complete gauge unification
We consider dark matter in a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM) which breaks electroweak symmetry dynamically and leads to a complete unification of the SM and technicolor couplingExpand
Effective Theories of Dark Mesons with Custodial Symmetry
Dark mesons are bosonic composites of a new, strongly-coupled sector beyond the Standard Model. We consider several dark sectors with fermions that transform under the electroweak group, as ariseExpand
Asymmetric accidental composite dark matter
The goal of this work is to find the simplest UV completion of Accidental Composite Dark Matter Models (ACDM) that can dynamically generate an asymmetry for the DM candidate, the lightest dark baryonExpand
Fundamental composite (Goldstone) Higgs dynamics
A bstractWe provide a unified description, both at the effective and fundamental Lagrangian level, of models of composite Higgs dynamics where the Higgs itself can emerge, depending on the way theExpand


Strong interactive massive particles from a strong coupled theory
Minimal walking technicolor models can provide a nontrivial solution for cosmological dark matter, if the lightest technibaryon is doubly charged. Technibaryon asymmetry generated in the earlyExpand
Dark Majorana particles from the minimal walking technicolor theory

The WIMP of a Minimal Technicolor Theory
We consider the possibility that a massive fourth family neutrino, predicted by a recently proposed minimal technicolor theory, could be the source of the dark matter in the universe. The model hasExpand
Dark Matter from new Technicolor Theories
We investigate dark matter candidates emerging in recently proposed technicolor theories. We determine the relic density of the lightest, neutral, stable technibaryon having imposed weak thermalExpand
Light composite Higgs boson from higher representations versus electroweak precision measurements: P

Detecting technibaryon dark matter
Abstract The technibaryon constitute a possible dark matter candidate. Such a particle with electroweak quantum numbers is already nearly ruled out as the dominant component of the galactic darkExpand
Dynamical Stabilization of the Fermi Scale: Phase Diagram of Strongly Coupled Theories for (Minimal) Walking Technicolor and Unparticles

Minimal Walking Technicolour, the Top Mass and Precision Electroweak Measurements
We consider a minimal technicolour theory with two techniflavours in the adjoint representation of an SU(2) technicolour gauge group which has been argued to feature walking dynamics. We show how toExpand
Gauge coupling unification via a technicolor model
We show that the recently proposed minimal walking technicolor theory together with a small modification of the standard model fermionic matter content leads to an excellent degree of unification ofExpand
Standard model solution of the baryogenesis problem
Abstract Recent studies of electroweak baryogenesis have led to the conclusion that the standard electroweak theory cannot explain the baryonic asymmetry of the universe. The reason is threefold.Expand
