Abstract

Partial top quark compositeness is a crucial aspect of theories with strong electroweak symmetry breaking. Together with the heavy top partners that lift the top quark mass to its observed value, these theories predict correlated modifications of the top quark’s electroweak couplings. Associated measurements therefore provide direct constraints on the ultraviolet structure of the underlying hypercolour dynamics. In this paper we employ a minimal version of top compositeness to discuss how measurements related to the top’s electroweak gauge interactions can inform the potential composite nature of the TeV scale. In doing so, we identify the dominant factors that limit the BSM sensitivity. Extrapolating to a future 100 TeV hadron collider, we demonstrate that top quark measurements performed at highest precision can provide additional information to resonance search by performing a representative resonant top partner search that specifically targets the correlated resonant electroweak top partner signatures.
