Lattice calculations are in progress to study SU(2) gauge theory with one Dirac fermion in the fundamental representation. This model bears some resemblance to QCD but there are also essential differences, such as an enlarged global symmetry and an absence of Goldstone bosons. The model contains a dark matter candidate that remains naturally stable over cosmological timescales.
