Non-minimal composite Higgs models with dark matter

Description
I will present a class of models in which the Higgs and an additional scalar field are pseudo-Goldstone bosons. I will show that, for appropriate symmetry-breaking patterns, the extra scalar is a to be a good dark matter candidate. All couplings and masses -and therefore all low-energy observables- are predicted, provided the model accounts for
the whole relic abundance in the universe.
