EPJ Plus - Discovering Technicolor

Cartoon of the Minimal Walking Technicolor Model extension of the SM.

At present there are no known elementary scalar fields. A possible candidate is the as yet undiscovered Higgs particle; however it could well be that this elusive particle is instead composite. This possibility is exhaustively examined in this article, which is both tutorial and extensive review, classifying the diverse technicolor models as extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics.

These model extensions are then compared with electroweak precision data, the spectrum of states common to most such models are identified, and their decays and associated experimental signals for the LHC illustrated, including the implementation in event generators important for searches at the LHC. This timely review provides the most complete and up-to-date benchmarks for the potential discovery of technicolor models.
