I discuss production and detection at the Tevatron collider of pairs of light (MπT = 100–200GeV) color-singlet technipions that are expected in all nonminimal models of technicolor. Gluon fusion production rates can be as large as O(1 pb). Topcolor-assisted technicolor is required to prevent top quarks from decaying at t → πT^+b. An intriguing consequence of this is that the decays πT^+ → τ+ντ, and may also be suppressed so that πT^+ → W^+γ and πT^0 → γγ are significant. These modes have spectactular signatures at the Tevatron.

(SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERS, 1998-08-01)We re-examine the calculation of the transverse spin-diffusion coefficient in a dilute degenerate spin-polarized Fermi gas, for the case of s-wave scattering. The special feature of this limit is that the dependence of the ...
Lane, Kenneth; Eichten, Estia (Elsevier Science BV, 1995-06-15)We construct a prototype of topcolor-assisted technicolor in which, although both top and bottom quarks acquire some mass from extended technicolor, strong U(1) couplings of technifermions are isospin symmetric and all ...
Lane, Kenneth (American Physical Society, 1999-10-01)We discuss the production and decay rates of the lightest colorsinglet technihadrons, spin-one ρT and ωT and spin-zero πT , in a minimal “straw-man” model of low-scale techicolor. The revised ρT and ωT decay rates affect ...
