Abstract

I will review some principles of model-building for Randall-Sundrum models in which the Higgs boson is realized as the 5th component of a gauge field and the Higgs potential arises from fermion condensation.  The simplest case of an SO(5) gauge field gives a fairly constrained model.  I will describe some features of this model in relation to precision electroweak, Higgs boson couplings, and top quark couplings.
