A new technique to protect the Higgs' masses

In the last few years the author has been working on a generalization of Yang-Mills theories and its implications for the high energy standard model. In the talk the author will review the (rather substantial) advances made in this last year. Particularly interesting is the fact that this generalization gives protection to the scalar bosons from acquiring high masses from quantum corrections (loops) and that it actually can be realized as a standard Yang-Mills theory in a higher dimensionality.
