Michael Peskin, Title: Exploring Randall-Sundrum models of gauge-Higgs unification
Asher Peres (502)
I will review some principles of model-building for Randall-Sundrum models in which the Higgs boson is realized as the 5th component of a gauge field and the Higgs potential arises from fermion condensation. The simplest case of an SO(5) gauge field gives a fairly constrained model. I will describe some features of this model in relation to precision electroweak, Higgs boson couplings, and top quark couplings.
