# Is Connes model a composite Higgs in disguise?

Most of the 5-dimensional Higgs models can be seen, if I understand correctly, as models where the Higgs is a composite.

Now, is this true for Connes models? It is a model of extra dimensions too, in some sense. And when you look at the papers, at some moment a product of two symbols is substituted by a single $\phi$, so it seems that some composition is at work.

why is the Higgs composite in extra dimension models? Do you mean little Higgs. –  Ron Maimon Jul 26 '12 at 5:33
