“Lattice Technicolor: Gauge Theories in the Presence of an Infrared Fixed Point”
In this talk I will report on our recent computation of the low-lying mesonic and gluonic states of SU(2) gauge theory with two adjoint fermions, the simplest realization of a Walking Technicolor model. We performed lattice simulations focusing on the chiral regime of the theory while keeping the systematic errors under control. Particular emphasis will be put on the comparison of the spectrum of the two channels, and on the emerging hierarchy. I will discuss the implications of these findings and will outline a strategy for discriminating between the (near-)conformal and the confining scenario. Aside from the results for the specific model we believe to have pointed out a valid approach to study many models in the proximity of an IR fixed point.
