Electroweak symmetry breaking in a warped dimension

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Various possibilities for electroweak symmetry breaking in a warped extra dimension are considered. If a Higgs boson is localized near the IR brane the gauge hierarchy problem can be addressed. By further requiring that the Higgs be a pseudo Nambu-Goldstone boson, a naturally light Higgs boson mass, compared to the IR scale can be obtained. Alternatively, electroweak symmetry can be broken by IR boundary conditions leading to a Higgsless scenario which is dual to technicolor-like theories. Finally, electroweak symmetry breaking can be an emergent phenomena where the W, Z bosons are composite and there is no Higgs mechanism.
