Abstract:
The intuition that Higgs coupling deviations from the Standard Model favor natural theories of electroweak symmetry breaking can be made quantitatively precise. In particular I will show how modifications of O(5%-20%) imply the existence of new bosonic states near the TeV scale, needed to stabilize the electroweak vacuum. The new states responsible for the deviations and, in some cases, the new bosonic states are observable at the LHC and I will discuss their phenomenology.
