Theories where the Higgs boson is a composite particle elegantly solve the hierarchy problem. This idea has been recently investigated in the framework of 5-dimensional warped models that, according to the AdS/CFT correspondence, have a 4-dimensional holographic interpretation in terms of strongly coupled field theories. We present a minimal model in which the Higgs arises as a pseudo-Goldstone boson and the electroweak symmetry is dynamically broken. This model can successfully solve the flavor problem and pass all the electroweak precision tests. To cite this article: R. Contino, A. Pomarol, C. R. Physique 8 (2007).

Les théories dans lesquelles le boson de Higgs apparaît comme une particule composite apportent une solution élégante au problème de hiérarchie. Ce scénario a récemment connu un regain dʼintérêt dans le contexte de théories dans des espaces courbés à cinq dimensions qui sont, selon la correspondence AdS/CFT, une description holographique de théories en couplage fort à quatre dimensions. Nous présentons ici un modèle minimale où le Higgs est un pseudo boson de Goldstone tandis que la symétrie électrofaible est brisée de façon dynamique. Ce modèle est en accord avec tous les tests de précisions et peut également prétendre à une solution du problème de saveur. Pour citer cet article : R. Contino, A. Pomarol, C. R. Physique 8 (2007).
