2 Outline Quick Review of Sakai-Sugimoto model The D4-D8-D8 system as an EWSB model Enhanced symmetries from extra dimensions General lessons from stringy AdS/Technicolor Basic Question: What might AdS/QCD be good for besides QCD?

3 QCD from strings D  U D4 x x x x x Witten; Csaki,Ooguri,Oz,Terning; … Massless fluctuations of D4 branes describe non-supersymmetric SU(N) gauge theory Antiperiodic BC’s on fermions break SUSY U 

4 Adding massless chiral quarks D4 D  U D4 x x x x x D8 x x x x x x x x x Sakai,Sugimoto; c.f. Kruczenski,Mateos,Myers,Winters (not chiral) Massless fluctuations of D4 branes describe non-supersymmetric SU(N) gauge theory Strings stretching from D4’s to D8’s are massless chiral quarks The U-tube Confinement,  SB U 

5 The D4-D8-D8 System D  U D4 x x x x x D8 x x x x x x x x x Sakai,Sugimoto; Antonyan,Harvey,Jensen,Kutasov; Aharony,Sonnenschein,Yankielowicz  SB D8 There is a one-parameter set of D8-brane configurations that minimize the D8-brane action. Confinement

6 QCD bound state masses and interactions 1)Probe brane limit: Assume N f ¿ N (Karch,Katz) 2)Determine shape of D8-brane by minimizing D8-brane action in D4-brane background 3)Fluctuations of the D8-brane describe bound states of quarks; D8-brane action determines their masses, decay constants, form factors, couplings, …

7 This is not QCD! KK scale ~ confinement scale: can’t separate additional physics from QCD states of interest (c.f. Polchinski-Strassler). Quarks are massless so far (but some debate: see Evans-Threlfall). Chiral symmetry breaking scale can be separated from confining scale. We ignore 4 dimensions on the D8-brane. Large-N-iness reflected in spectral functions, etc.

8 D4 brane geometry  period: The U-tube

9 Probe brane limit D8-brane action Stationary Solution:

10 Probe brane limit Induced metric on D8-brane:

11 Vector mesons on the D8-branes SU(N f ) gauge fields live on the D8-branes – identify 4D modes with vector mesons

12 Vector mesons on the D8-branes Solve equations of motion for modes of the vector field Symmetric modes are identified with vector resonances Antisymmetric modes are identified with axial vector resonances Vector and axial vector masses alternate Vector Axial Vector

13 What other physics might AdS/QCD describe? Condensed matter? (Son; Hartnoll,Herzog,Horowitz) Electroweak sector?

14 Holographic Technicolor Hirn,Sanz; Piai; Agashe,Csaki,Grojean,Reece; Hong,Yee,… AdS/QCD is like QCD. Technicolor is like QCD. Hence, AdS/QCD is like technicolor.

15 QCD and Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Quarks are charged under electroweak symmetry, which in the quark sector is a gauged subgroup of the chiral symmetry £ U(1) B-L. q L q R +q R q L charged under SU(2) W £ U(1) Y, Invariant under U(1) EM Even in the absence of any other source of EWSB, nonvanishing h q L q R +q R q L i breaks EW to EM, gives small mass to W, Z bosons. But we need more EWSB -- lot’s more!

16 Technicolor Assume a new asymptotically free gauge group factor G TC with N F techniquark flavors Gauge a SU(2) £ U(1) subgroup of the chiral symmetry ( £ U(1) B-L ) Identify with electroweak gauge invariance The chiral condensate breaks the electroweak symmetry to U(1) EM The good: No fundamental scalars – no hierarchy problem The bad: Estimates of precision electroweak observables disagree with experiment ! walking TC may be better The ugly: No fermion masses ! Extended Technicolor Weinberg,Susskind

17 Minimal Technicolor Gauge group: G TC £ SU(2) £ U(1) SU(2) technifermion doublet Q L =(U,D) L SU(2) technifermion singlets U R, D R Technifermion condensate = 4  f 3 (No Standard Model fermion masses yet, doesn’t satisfy electroweak constraints…) Breaks Electroweak Symmetry

18 Question: Can the D4-D8 system give us insight into how to cure the problems with technicolor models? Answer: Yes. Well, sort of.

19 Gauging the EW symmetry on the D8 branes Decompose the D8-brane gauge fields in modes Turn on non-vanishing solutions at boundaries (zero modes) These solutions correspond to sources for the electroweak currents Decay constants are read off of couplings between sources and resonances

20 Precision Electroweak Constraints Particle Data Group

21 Chiral Symmetry Breaking in QCD/Technicolor Nonvanishing breaks chiral symmetry to diagonal subgroup (Isospin) JJ J Goldstones

22 Oblique Parameters Oblique corrections describe influence of new physics on vacuum polarization corrections to electroweak observables -- Parametrized by three quantities that can be calculated from matrix elements of products of electroweak currents: S,T,U Peskin,Takeuchi; Golden,Randall; Holdom,Terning S: measures neutral gauge boson kinetic terms T: measures relation between m W and m Z U: measures relation between W and Z kinetic terms In most acceptable models, T and U are protected by a custodial symmetry. Sikivie,Susskind,Voloshin,Zakharov

23 The trouble with technicolor The S parameter in QCD-like technicolor theories is estimated to be too large to be consistent with precision electroweak measurements JJ J

24 Constraints on S,T PDG

25 The SS S Parameter – first few contributions

26 The S Parameter – sum over all modes Factor of 10 too big g 2 N=4 , N=4

27 Separating the Standard Model from New Physics JE,Tan (to appear) The S parameter is more precisely defined with respect to a Reference Standard Model with some Higgs mass.

28 Peskin,Takeuchi Reference Standard Model contributions to S SM : Reference Higgs mass Define

29 1/N corrections to S-parameter Inconsistency in AdS/QCD due to large-N with N=3: Poles for real q 2 ! implies zero-width resonances. But, decay rates can be calculated from meson couplings, do not vanish. Solution: Self-consistently, we can assume location of poles predicts spectrum, but fix analytic properties of spectral functions by including hadronic loop corrections.

30 Include Goldstone loops, use vector meson dominance:           + …+  V = Result (preliminary): S parameter even larger than expected from scaled-up QCD estimates. Calculated by AdS/QCD

31 Other phenomenology This model doesn’t satisfy electroweak constraints yet, but what else could be predicted in the model? Technibaryons appear as skyrmions. Vector Axial Vector New states predicted (KK modes)

32 Can the model be saved? The lightest resonances contributed negatively to S. We can try to truncate the model consistently at some scale before S becomes too positive.

33 Brane in a Box Raise the confinement scale with respect to the chiral symmetry breaking scale: Put the D8 branes in a box (but this isn’t string theory anymore!) For small enough box, naively S decreases, but the electroweak sector becomes strongly coupled at the TeV scale so it is hard to calculate

34 Deconstruction Deconstruct the extra dimension: Replace gauge fields in extra dimension by a finite tower of massive resonances Resulting theory is reminiscent of little Higgs models, analysis should be similar.

35 Summary so far The D4-D8 system can be interpreted as a technicolor model The S parameter is too large, as in estimates from Real World QCD Still need to add Standard Model fermions, masses Extra states predicted (KK modes) – expect technihadron resonances + large extra dimension

36 Enhanced Symmetries from Extra Dimensions Intriguing lesson from the D4-D8 system: Enhanced gauge and global symmetries are a generic feature of extra-dimensional models with multiple-UV regions. In the D4-D8 system a single 5D SU(2) gauge field gives rise to an enhanced SU(2) £ SU(2) symmetry in the low-energy 4D theory (c.f. Son,Stephanov). What else might enhanced symmetries be good for?

37 Higgsless EWSB Hirn,Sanz/Csaki,Grojean,Murayama,Pilo,Terning z=  z=R 0 SU(2) L £ SU(2) R U(1) Y = T R 3 + (B-L)/2 £ U(1) B-L SU(2) L £ SU(2) R ! SU(2) D SU(2) R £ U(1) ! U(1) Y photon: m=0 W,Z: m 2 ~ 1 / R 0 2 log(R 0 /  ) m KK ~ R 0 Spectrum

38 WV EWSB Carone,JE,Sher; Hirayama,Yoshioka To reproduce Standard Model fermion couplings without extra ultralight modes, we embed the model in 6D. z IR UV zSU(2) SU(2) lives on a D4 brane w/ double-UV geometry  U(1) B-L U(1) B-L lives on a flat D4 brane The two D4 branes intersect at two UV boundaries (z L,L  ) (z R,0)

39 WV EWSB z IR UV zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Boundary Conditions: Neumann + effects of localized decoupled Higgs doublet at (z R,0) L  < R 0 : Ultralight B  profile approximately uniform

40 WV EWSB z IR UV zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Ultralight spectrum:

41 Standard Model fermion couplings z IR zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Left-handed fermions localized at z L Right-handed fermions localized at z R All fermions are in SU(2) doublets Quarks: B-L charge 1/3 Leptons: B-L charge -1 Left-handed doublet Universal fermion couplings

42 Standard Model fermion couplings z IR zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Massless and Ultralight modes: Left-handed doublet

43 Standard Model fermion couplings z IR zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Left-handed doublet

44 Standard Model fermion couplings z IR zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Left-handed doublet

45 Standard Model fermion couplings z IR zSU(2)  U(1) B-L (z L,L  ) (z R,0) Right-handed doublet Right-handed fermion couplings similar, also consistent with Standard Model

46 Hidden custodial symmetry Both weak SU(2) gauge group and SU(2) custodial symmetry arise from a single 5D SU(2) gauge group.

47 Precision Electroweak Constraints ! For L  ¿ R 0 and  R /R 0 = : S=3.9, T=0.04 Perhaps S can be reduced by adding brane kinetic terms, adding Majorana masses, or otherwise modifying the model Can’t simply allow fermions to propagate in the bulk because they are charged under localized gauge fields PDG

48 Standard Model Fermion Masses Mass matrix M can be isospin and CP violating. Can add Majorana masses for right-handed neutrinos. c.f. Aharony,Kutasov

49 An SU(3) GUT from multi-UV geometries? UV Low-energy theory like trinification model? Glashow,Weinberg IR
