A natural generalization of the standard Randall-Sundrum framework and its phenomenological implications

In the first part of the talk, I will introduce a very natural extension of well-motivated extra-dimensional framework of Randall-Sundrum type. Such a generalization is motivated by (null) results from both high energy (LHC) and low energy (flavor, CP, and electroweak precision) experiments. In particular, null results from the LHC led us to consider the possibility that little hierarchy may exist. In addition to the consistency with low energy bounds, our generalization can address the question of the form of TeV scale new physics we can expect. I will argue that such new physics appearing at the TeV scale is in the form of vector-like confinement with new states interacting with SM through mostly flavor universal couplings. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss several exciting signals probable at the LHC and in future colliders.
