"Little Higgs and Superlatives"
Little Higgs models revive the old idea of the Higgs being a pseudo-Goldstone boson. These models are motivated by the little hierarchy problem and present many interesting signatures for the LHC. In this talk I will review the Little Higgs mechanism and describe some of the models in the literature. I will then describe some of the problems with existing models, and conclude by discussing a new model that I worked on with Jesse Thaler and Martin Schmaltz (arXiv:1006.1356 [hep-ph]).
