    Composite Weak Bosons at the LHC


    The weak bosons and the leptons and quarks are composite
    particles. Their constituents are bound by a superstrong gauge
    force. The Standard Model is a low energy approximation, which
    fails above 0.5 TeV. No Higgs particle exists. The electroweak mixing is a dynamical
    process and fixes the scale of the superstrong force to about 0.5
    TeV. At energies above 0.5 TeV many excitations of the weak bosons
    exist, which decay mainly into W and Z bosons. Events with many
    weak bosons should be observed soon at the LHC.
