Résumé: I discuss the infrared mass spectrum of stronglycoupled gauge theories, thatinduce the Higgs as a composite pseudoNambuGoldstone boson. The set ofcomposite states accompanying the Higgs is determined by the symmetries of thetheory. Here we estimate their mass spectrum by nonperturbative techniquesinspired by QCD, as well as by exploiting gaugegravity duality. 1 CompositeHiggs: motivations and relevant energy scales As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)did not find new states significantly coupled to the Standard Model (SM) belowthe TeV scale, any SM extension by such heavy states suffers from a littlehierarchy problem, as the mass of the scalar Higgs boson lies close to the 100GeV scale. Still, some SM extensions have the potential to address the bighierarchy between the TeV scale and the Planck scale. One possibility is toavoid elementary scalar fields, and assume the observed Higgs is a compositeobject, with a compositeness scale f 1 TeV. This scenario requires a stronglycoupled sector, whose spectrum generically includes several additional compositestates besides the Higgs. The mass of the lowestlying states cannot exceed ∼4πf , and some could be significantly lighter and within the LHC reach. Definitepredictions for the mass spectrum require to specify the stronglycoupled theoryin the ultraviolet (UV). Here we will assume it is a gauge theory of fermions,that confines in the infrared. We will estimate its mass spectrum in some welldefined approximations, by employing nonperturbative techniques inspired by QCD1) , as well as gaugegravity duality techniques 2). In models where the Higgsis a pseudoNambuGoldstone boson (pNGB) the electroweak scale, v 246 GeV, isinduced in two steps. The theory has a global (flavour) symmtry G F , that isspontaneously broken to a subgroup H F at the scale f. The electroweak symmetrySU (2) L × U (1) Y is embedded in 91

Résumé: We investigate newphysics contributions to $b\rightarrow s \ell \ell $ transitions in the context of an effective field theory extension of the Standard Model, including operator mixing at one loop. We identify the few scenarios where a single Wilson coefficient, $C/\Lambda ^2 \sim 1/\mathrm{TeV}^2$, induces a substantial shift in the lepton flavour universality ratios $R_K$ and $R_{K^*}$ at one loop, while evading Zpole precision tests, collider bounds, and other flavour constraints. Novel fits to the present data are achieved by a lefthanded current operator with quarkflavour indices (2, 2) or (3, 3). Interestingly, the running of the Standard Model Yukawa matrices gives the dominant effect for these scenarios. We match the favoured effectivetheory scenarios to minimal, singlemediator models, which are subject to additional stringent constraints. Notably, we recognise three viable instances of a leptoquark with one coupling to fermions only. If the anomalies were confirmed, it appears that oneloop explanations have good prospects of being directly tested at the LHC.

Résumé: In the absence of direct evidence of new physics, any ultraviolet theory can be reduced to its specific set of lowenergy effective operators. As a case study, we derive the effective field theory for the seesaw extension of the Standard Model, with sterile neutrinos of mass $M>m_W$. We systematically compute all Wilson coefficients generated at one loop. Hence, it becomes straightforward to (i) identify the seesaw parameters compatible with the smallness of neutrino masses; (ii) compute precision lepton observables, which may be sensitive to scales as large as $M\sim 10^3$ TeV; and (iii) establish sharp correlations among those observables. We find that the flavourconserving Wilson coefficients set an upper bound on the flavourviolating ones. The lowenergy limits on $\mu\to e$ and $\tau\to e,\mu$ transitions suppress flavour violation in $Z$ and Higgs decays, as well as electric dipole moments, far beyond the experimental reach. The bounds from the universality of $G_F$ and the invisible $Z$ width are more stringent than present and future limits on $\tau\to e,\mu$ transitions. We also present a general spurion analysis, to compare the seesaw with different models, thus assessing the discriminating potential of the effective approach.

Résumé: Partial compositeness as a theory of flavor in the lepton sector is assessed. We begin presenting the first systematic analysis of neutrino mass generation in this context, and identifying the distinctive mass textures. We then update the bounds from charged lepton flavor and CP violating observables. We put forward a U(1)$^{3}$ × CP symmetry of the composite sector, in order to allow the new physics to be not far above the TeV scale. This hypothesis effectively suppresses the new contributions to the electron EDM and μ → eγ, by far the most constraining observables, and results in a novel pattern of flavor violation and neutrino masses. The CP violation in the elementarycomposite mixing is shown to induce a CKM phase of the correct size, as well as orderone phases in the PMNS matrix. We compare with the alternative possibility of introducing multiple scales of compositeness for leptons, that also allow to evade flavor and CP constraints. Finally, we examine violations of lepton flavor universality in Bmeson semileptonic decays. The neutralcurrent anomalies can be accommodated, predicting strong correlations among different lepton flavors, with a few channels close to the experimental sensitivity.

Résumé: The clockwork mechanism is a novel method for generating a large separation between the dynamical scale and interaction scale of a theory. We demonstrate how the mechanism can arise from a sequence of stronglycoupled sectors. This framework avoids elementary scalar fields as well as ad hoc continuous global symmetries, both of which are subject to serious stability issues. The clockwork factor, q, is determined by the consistency of the strong dynamics. The preserved global U(1) of the clockwork appears as an accidental symmetry, resulting from discrete or U(1) gauge symmetries, and it is spontaneously broken by the chiral condensates. We apply such a dynamical clockwork to construct models with an effectively invisible QCD axion from TeVscale strong dynamics. The axion couplings are determined by the localisation of the Standard Model interactions along the clockwork sequence. The TeV spectrum includes either coloured hadrons or vectorlike quarks. Dark matter can be accounted for by the axion or the lightest neutral baryons, which are accidentally stable.
