Composite extensions of the Standard Model

Experimental evidence shows that the Standard Model is incomplete. In this project we will explore strongly coupled extensions of the Standard Model, which are promising in addressing some of the theoretical problems of the Standard Model. In particular, we will study composite Higgs models, with and without gauged scalar fields. We will use rigorous numerical methods based on the lattice field theory to investigate the non-perturbative dynamics of the candidate models and obtain quantitative information to test the models against experiments.
