Abstract: My talk will describe recent results from lattice simulations of SU(4) gauge theory with simultaneous fermions in two different representations. The motivation for studying such a theory is twofold. First, this theory is closely related to a theory of physics beyond the Standard Model that was recently proposed in the literature. In this model, the Higgs boson is a composite particle, and the top quark is a partially composite particle. Second, theories of this sort represent a new direction in the study of gauge dynamics and thus provide many opportunities to test our qualitative understanding of strongly coupled physics.
