IAS title: Talk 2: 'Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Scenarios and Their Signals'.
Abstract: Prof Csaki presents a survey of recent ideas for new mechanisms for electroweak symmetry breaking and TeV scale physics. For supersymmetric theories he reviews the “little hierarchy problem” and explains what the potential ways of evading it are. He comments on buried/hidden higgs models and their signals at the LHC. After a short summary of strongly coupled (technicolor‐type) models he spends the rest of the lecture on summarizing the various warped extra dimensional scenarios. He explains why and how the original Randall‐Sundrum model has been augmented over the past decade, and what the most popular version of the model currently is. If one wants to resolve the little hierarchy of the Randall‐Sundrum models as well, one needs to consider either higgsless of composite pseudo‐Goldstone higgs models. He summarizes the main features of these theories as well as their expected experimental signals.
