As part of an ongoing programme to study Sp(2N) gauge theories as potentialrealisations of composite Higgs models, we consider the case of Sp(4) on the lattice, bothas a pure gauge theory, and with two Dirac fermion flavors in the fundamental representation.In order to compare results between these...

Abstract: As part of an ongoing programme to study Sp(2N) gauge theories as potentialrealisations of composite Higgs models, we consider the case of Sp(4) on the lattice, bothas a pure gauge theory, and with two Dirac fermion flavors in the fundamental representation.In order to compare results between these two cases and maintain control oflattice artefacts, we make use of the gradient flow to set the scale of the simulations. Wepresent some technical aspects of the simulations, including preliminary results for thescale setting in the two cases and results for the topological charge history.
