Strong dynamics beyond the Standard Model

In this research programme, we investigate possible microscopic structure of the Higgs boson, as well as alternative mechanisms for the electroweak symmetry breaking and the generation of flavours. Employing techniques of Lattice Gauge Theory, non-perturbative studies of quantum field theories that may lead to the composite-Higgs scenario can be performed. This research avenue contains at least the two following directions:

  • The dilaton Higgs boson
  • The Goldstone Higgs boson
