Half-Composite Higgs: a UV completion to the SM?

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Francesco Coradeschi.

The paradigm of Composite Higgs (CH) identifies the latter with a pseudo Nambu-Goldstone boson emerging from a Chiral Symmetry Breaking of a new “Hypercolor” confining gauge sector. The issue of generating couplings of the CH to Standard Model (SM) fermions poses a hard challenge, especially in view of the flavour structure of the SM itself. In this talk, I shall investigate a theoretically interesting – and hopefully viable – alternative to Partial-Compositeness scenarios: the re-introduction of an elementary scalar, acting as a bridge between the elementary and composite sectors, and providing a (virtually) simple UV completion of the SM.

This talk is part of the HEP phenomenology joint Cavendish-DAMTP seminar series.
