In this seminar, I’ll discuss recent results from lattice simulation of a candidate model of physics beyond the Standard Model. In systems of interest, the Higgs arises as a Goldstone boson of a new strongly coupled sector in the UV, while the top quark obtains its large mass through the mechanism of partial compositeness. This talk will introduce a recent model of partial compositeness due to Ferretti and present preliminary lattice results. From the lattice perspective, one novel feature of Ferretti’s model is the presence of dynamical fermions in multiple different representations.
