The vectorlike twin Higgs
Abstract
Here, we present a version of the twin Higgs mechanism with vectorlike top partners. In this setup all gauge anomalies automatically cancel, even without twin leptons. The matter content of the most minimal twin sector is therefore just two twin tops and one twin bottom. The LHC phenomenology, illustrated with two example models, is dominated by twin glueball decays, possibly in association with Higgs bosons. We further construct an explicit fourdimensional UV completion and discuss a variety of UV completions relevant for both vectorlike and fraternal twin Higgs models.
