Description

Composite Higgs models imagine a new, strongly-coupled gauge force underlying electroweak symmetry breaking. Although significant insight into these models can be gained using effective theories, lattice calculations offer a unique opportunity to study the underlying strongly-coupled dynamics from first principles. Given an ultraviolet completion of a composite Higgs model, lattice can predict the various low-energy constants of the corresponding effective theory from a handful of fundamental parameters. Lattice studies can also give more general insights into e.g. symmetry-breaking patterns, and has the chance to reveal dynamical surprises in new strongly-coupled theories. I will give a brief overview of current and future lattice work focused on application to composite Higgs scenarios.
