Goldstone meets Higgs at the LHC
Abstract: After the recent discovery at the LHC of a Higgs-like particle with mass around 125 GeV, it is mandatory to reassess the viability of the proposed solutions to the hierarchy problem of the electroweak scale. In this talk we will focus on compositeness as the fundamental idea, with the Higgs arising as a Goldstone-boson of the new strong dynamics. We will present this old proposal with all its modern developments, and discuss its exciting phenomenological implications, including the prospect of non-minimal scalar sectors and its significance for Higgs couplings.
