Testing Technicolor Physics

Simulated data showing protons colliding to form a Higgs boson that decays into hadrons, electrons.

An example of simulated data modeled for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider. Here, following a collision of two protons, a Higgs boson is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. DeGrand's theories represent an alternative to the standard model.

Map of technicolor particle theories showing the numbers of colors and flavors of quarks.

Above is a map of technicolor particle theories that Thomas DeGrand studies. The axes represent (horizontal) the number of colors and (vertical) the number of flavors of quarks. The different colors describe different kinds of color structure for the quarks. The shaded bands are where theorists (D. Dietrich and F. Sannino) predict that there are "unparticle" theories.
