- Abstract: A number of interesting models of new physics, including composite Higgs and composite dark matter scenarios, imagine new strongly-coupled gauge interactions that give rise to compositeness. The phenomenology of these models is typically studied using low-energy effective theories, but calculations in the underlying strongly-coupled theory can predict low-energy constants from a handful of fundamental parameters, as well as giving new insights beyond the effective description. I will review recent efforts using lattice gauge theory to study theories beyond QCD, with an eye towards BSM physics.
