In this dissertation, we revisit the prospects of a strongly interacting theory for the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector of the Standard Model, after the discovery of a Higgs-like boson at 125GeV. As the LHC constrains new phenomena near the Higgs mass, it is natural to assume that the new scale is of order 1TeV. This mass gap might indicate strongly interacting new physics. This work is of quite general validity and model independence. With only a few parameters at the Lagrangian level, multiple channels (possibly with new physics resonances) are describable, and many BSM theories can be treated. It will be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers, and is accessible to newcomers in the field. Many calculations are given in full detail and there are ample graphical illustrations.
Dr. Rafael L. Delgado is a young post-doc in the field of strongly interacting effective field theories. His doctoral research has been performed in the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM).
He has maintained scientific collaborations with Profs. M.J.Herrero (UAM-IFT/CSIC in Madrid) and D.Espriu (UB in Barcelona); and Drs. J.J.Sanz-Cillero (IFT/CSIC and UCM) and A.Castillo (UNAL, Colombia). Furthermore, he has contributed the LHCHXSWG at CERN and performed 3 research stays at the University of Southampton, MPI für Physik in Munich and SLAC. He produced 9 accepted papers in peer-reviewed journals, one of them in the 'Highlights of 2014' of the Journal.
