Description

The clockwork mechanism is an elegant framework to generate exponential hierarchies in a theory with only $O(1)$ numbers to start with. I will present some of the recent theoretical and phenomenological developments, first introducing the mechanism by using dark matter as an example of clockwork model building, then discussing the robustness of the clockwork solution to the hierachy problem and the possible origins of the clockwork in the UV from extra-dimensional constructions.
