Ofri Telem (Cornell University): “Continuum Naturalness”

Seminar Organizer

Traditional searches for fermionic top partners have focused on particles that can be described by Breit-Wigner resonances. We consider a broader setting in which the top and gauge partners responsible for cutting off the Higgs potential are not particles, but rather gapped continuum states at a critical point. For concreteness, we realize this critical point in a 5D soft wall setting and construct a fully calculable composite Higgs model with continuum top and gauge partners.
