Composite gauge bosons

  1. Sep 25, 2015 #1
    Buried in a recent talk by John Ellis, the following passage:
    Reference 92 is Weinberg & Witten 1980, reference 93 is a talk by Zohar Komargodski at the same meeting.

    Is Ellis's thought accurate? I don't think anyone thought the Weinberg-Witten theorem ruled out composite gauge bosons, only certain types of composite gravitons. It didn't even rule out things like Sakharov's induced gravity.

    It makes me thing about getting bosons easily from spin networks.
