Technicolor (physics)

Technicolor models are GUT theories which do not have a scalar Higgs field. Instead, they have a larger number of fermion fields than the Standard Model and involve a larger gauge group. This larger gauge group is spontaneously broken down to the Standard Model as fermion condensates form.

The Schwinger model is an excellent toy model to get a feel for such models.
