Abstract

The holographic basis is a novel tool which allows for a quantitative description of elementary/composite mixing in holographic duals of warped models. We apply this tool to bulk fermions in a slice of AdS5 and determine the precise admixture of elementary source field and composite resonances forming the standard model fermions. In particular, for the phenomenologically important case of an IR localized right-handed top quark, we show that the massless eigenstate is approximately a 50/50 elementary-composite admixture. We also translate, in a simple yet quantitative manner, several of the phenomenological successes enjoyed by warped models to the language of partial compositeness. © 2008 Th..
