Particle Physics Seminar: Numerical Exploration of Symmetry Breaking Patterns for Composite Higgs
Yaakov Kolodner, TAU
In the talk I will start with a short review of composite Higgs, its motivations, techniques, and theories: Chiral spontaneous symmetry breaking, non-linear sigma model, partial compositeness. I will present the specific model on which we worked: An SU(4) color gauge model with fermions in two representations which contains top partners. also will look at the theorie's couplings to the SM. Finally, I will present the numerical exploration of the low energy potential and some theoretical constructions used in order to understand and extrapolate from these numerical results.
