Abstract

Precision electroweak data, a light higgs and LHC searches for new spin one particles are all very constraining on technicolor models. We use a holographic model of walking techicolor (WTC) gauge dynamics, tuned to produce a light higgs and low S parameter, to estimate the range of possible vector(ρ) and pseudo-vector(A) resonance masses and couplings as a function of the number of colours and the number of flavours of techni-singlet and techni-doublet quarks. The resulting models predict techni-hadron masses and couplings above the current limits from dilepton resonance searches at the LHC because their masses are enhanced by the strong coupling extending into the multi-TeV range, while couplings to Standard Model fermions are partly suppressed. The models emphasize the contortions needed to continue to realize technicolor, the need to explore new signatures beyond dilepton for LHC and also motivate a 100 TeV proton collider.
