Title: Searching for the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking  

Abstract: The standard model of particle physics has been very successful at explaining all collider experiments to date. However, it does not give a well-motivated explanation for why the electroweak symmetry should be spontaneously broken. Recently several new possible theories have been suggested to cure this shortcoming. I describe the motivations and the consequences of some of these new theories, including large and warped extra dimensions, higgsless and little higgs models.  

Stimulants available 15 minutes before the talk. This seminar will take place during the TeVnu workshop.  Please note change of time due to unavoidable travel difficulties.  There will be another speaker on a related topic at 13:00.
