Common exotic LHC signatures in underlying models with a composite Higgs

We classify underlying models with a confining gauge group and fermions, which contain a composite Higgs and vector-like fermion top partners in their bound-state spectrum. All of these models are found to contain light (potentially sub-TeV) pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone resonances (pNGBs) beyond the Higgs. In the first part of the talk we present bounds from existing LHC searches and new search strategies for directly produced pNGBs.
In the second part of the talk we discuss the impact of pNGBs on vector-like quark searches at LHC. We show that ``exotic decays'' of vector-like quarks into SM quarks and pNGBs are the norm and commonly appear with large rates. We identify the contributing particle content and novel top partner decays that occur most commonly, provide effective Lagrangians, benchmarks, and a brief discussion of phenomenological bounds and newly occurring final states.
