125 GeV Higgs boson from a not so light technicolor scalar

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Assuming that the observed Higgs-like resonance at the Large Hadron Collider is a technicolor isosinglet scalar (the technicolor Higgs), we argue that the standard model top-induced radiative corrections reduce its mass toward the desired experimental value. We discuss conditions for the spectrum of technicolor theories to feature a technicolor Higgs with the phenomenologically required dynamical mass. We consider different representations under the technicolor gauge group and employ scaling laws in terms of the dimension of the representation. We also summarize the potential effects of walking dynamics on the mass of the technicolor Higgs.
