Dark Matter and Composite Weak Bosons

Harald Fritzsch
Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich

The weak bosons are composite particles. The scalar boson, observed at the Large Hadron Collicer, is not a Higgs boson, but a p-wave excitation of the neutral weak boson. The mass spectrum of the excited bosons is discussed, as well as the decays of these particles into weak bosons and photons. One of the new neutral fermions is stable and provides the dark matter in the universe.
