Composite BSM physics on the lattice

My talk will describe recent results from lattice simulations of SU(4) gauge theory with simultaneous fermions in two different representations. The motivation for studying such a theory is twofold. First, this theory is closely related to a theory of physics beyond the Standard Model which was recently proposed in the literature. In this model, the Higgs boson is a composite particle, and the top quark is a partially composite particle. Second, theories of this sort represent a new direction in the study of gauge dynamics and thus provide many opportunities to test our qualitative understanding of strongly coupled physics.
