Title: Natural Seesaw in Warped/Composite Higgs framework
and its LHC Signals

Abstract: I will show how a natural seesaw model for SM
neutrino mass arises within the general framework of a
warped extra dimension (dual to composite Higgs in 4D). It
starts out as an attempt at implementing the high-scale
seesaw mechanism. I will first carefully determine what
the underlying dynamical picture really is. Motivated by
this physical understanding, LHC signals of TeV-mass SM
singlet neutrinos within a specific model for the
electroweak gauge sector will be discussed. Some of these
channels are similar to those studied in 4D left-right
(LR) symmetric models, but nonetheless the two can be
distinguished. While other signals are more characteristic
of the 5D/composite framework, i.e., are absent in 4D LR
models.
