Event details

A very appealing solution to the hierarchy problem of the Standard Model is that

the Higgs particle might be a composite particle originating from new physics.

This general scenario has a number of concrete possible realisations, that require

non-perturbative theoretical methods.

I illustrate a selection of these possibilities with model calculations that use gauge-gravity dualities,

lattice gauge theories and effective field theories.
