  1. 1. Cosmological implications of a QCD-like composite Higgs model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Hristina Georgieva Hristova; [2021]
    Keywords : composite Higgs; technicolor; gravitational waves; LISA; phase transition; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Some of the shortcomings of the Standard Model of particle physics are the 'unnatural' value of the mass of the Higgs boson and the fact that the model cannot account for the process of baryogenesis - a mechanism which generates the observed asymmetry between matter and anti-matter in the Universe. The former is related to the fundamental scalar nature of the Higgs boson, connected to quadratic divergences in the mass corrections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Chirally Symmetric Technicolor Model: A possible origin of the Higgs Boson

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Jacob Taxén; [2015]
    Keywords : standard model; higgs; techicolor; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates a possible extension to the Standard Model: the Chirally Symmetric Technicolor Model. The motivation is to explain the origin of the electroweak interaction scale by introducing a new interaction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chirally Symmetric Technicolor extension to the Standard Model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Jim Lundgren; [2014]
    Keywords : particle physics; technicolor; Higgs; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis a chirally symmetric technicolor model is investigated as an extension to the Standard Model. The extension is based on low-energy QCD, with a linear sigma model used to induce the additional degrees of freedom corresponding to the lightest particles of the new techni-sector. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Chirally Symmetric Technifermion Sector

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Astrid Ordell; [2014]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the low-energy effective field theory of a new technicolor extension. The extension preserves the Standard Model Higgs boson and introduces a chirally symmetric technifermion sector, in the framework of the gauged linear sigma model. READ MORE
