Title: Studies of Minimal Walking Technicolor on the lattice

Abstract: Minimal Walking Technicolor (MWT) models have been proposed to explain the mechanism for Electroweak symmetry breaking by replacing the fundamental Higgs particle with a new strongly interacting sector, in which the Higgs is composite. In view of the recent discovery of the Higgs particle and the experimental searches for MWT by the ATLAS collaboration, it is relevant to understand MWT models quantitatively in more detail. I will present some of our recent lattice studies of two MWT models, the SU(2)a and the SO(4)v models, aimed at determining the details of the strong dynamics and provide inputs for the experimental searches.
