Is there a unique candidate theory for a bound state model of electroweak symmetry breaking with light vectors and heavy scalars?
Abstract
We show that there is only one confining nonabelian gauge theory with fermions that has no Goldstone bosons, maximal mixing with CPodd glue via the chiral anomaly in the pseudoscalar channel, and with only one isospin group. Because of the possibility that the scalar states are lifted above the vector states, it is the candidate theory for describing composite weak bosons. We discuss whether the lightest (isosinglet) vector mass can be consistently adjusted to zero in a lattice construction of the theory and find that the isotriplet vector mass may well reproduce the weak boson mass. Some phenomenological consequences and the existence of a cold dark matter candidate are mentioned.
