We present a non perturbative study of SU(2) gauge theory with two
fundamental Dirac flavours.
This theory provides a minimal template which is ideal for a wide
class of Standard Model extensions featuring novel strong dynamics.
After reviewing our findings for the Goldstone bosons and spin-1
spectrum, we present our new results for the sigma and eta states.
We evaluate the relevant...

We construct a prototype BSM model where the Higgs boson is a pseudo
Nambu-Goldstone boson by combining 4 light (massless) flavors and 8
heavy flavors. In the infrared, the SU(4) chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken , while in the ultraviolet it exhibits the properties of the $N_f=12$ conformal fixed point. The running coupling of this system ``walks" and the energy range of walking can...

Motivated by tentative signals of new physics at the LHC, which seems to imply the presence of large mass hierarchies, we investigate the theoretical possibility that these could arise dynamically in new strongly-coupled gauge theories extending the standard model of particle physics.

Recent simulations suggest the existence of a very light singlet scalar
in QCD-like theories that may be lying just outside the conformal window.
Assuming that the lightness of this scalar can be explained by an
approximate dilatation symmetry, we develop an effective field theory
framework for both the pions and this light scalar, the "dilatonic meson."
We argue that a power counting...

We consider applications of a recently developed effective field theory
for a dilatonic meson and pions. We contrast the leading-order behavior
of masses with that in a theory with only pions, comment on
next-to-leading order, and argue that the effective theory breaks down at
the sill of the conformal window, as it should.

Formulations of lattice supersymmetry over the last decade have been able to significantly reduce the amount of fine-tuning necessary in order to obtain the correct continuum limit.
