Light Composite Higgs: The Third Way to Electroweak Symmetry Breaking - Part 2

Sunrise (Fermilab)



All experimenters these days are educated in Supersymmetry, and I understand that, at Fermilab, everyone also is familiar with Technicolor. But there is a third interesting class of models of electroweak symmetry breaking in which the Higgs boson is light and weakly coupled but has composite or other structure at a smaller scale. This class of models includes Little Higgs theories and various types of models with extra space dimensions. If Supersymmetry is being taken down by the LHC results (still a debatable statement), these models should be going up. So, I would like to review such models and their signatures for the LPC experimenters Title: LPC Topic of the Week: Michael Peskin Description: Community: CMS Meeting Access Information: - Meeting URL http://evo.caltech.edu/evoNext/koala.jnlp?meeting=MDMaM8292uDuDM9v9iD99D - Phone Bridge ID: 478 8577 Central Standard Time (-0600) Start 2012-02-23 15:00 End 2012-02-23 18:00 Japan Standard Time (+0900) Start 2012-02-24 06:00 End 2012-02-24 09:00 Central European Time (+0100) Start 2012-02-23 22:00 End 2012-02-24 01:00 Eastern Standard Time (-0500) Start 2012-02-23 16:00 End 2012-02-23 19:00 Pacific Standard Time (-0800) Start 2012-02-23 13:00 End 2012-02-23 16:00
