I was looking at pdf file of the presentation of a conference talk. The speaker discusses two types of "mechanisms" for stabilizing the weak scale and calls them "weakly coupled" and "strongly coupled". The examples are:
Weakly coupled: SM with a light Higgs, SUSY, Little Higgs, Twin Higgs, Large extra dimensions, Universal extra dimensions.
Strongly Coupled: Technicolor, Topcolor, Top See Saw, Composite Higgs, Randall-Sundurm warped extra dimension models.
I need to understand what makes one such beyond standard model theory to be weakly coupled and another to be strongly coupled, in general and especially why large/universal extra dimension and Randall-Sundrum models belong to two separate groups.
Perhaps I should emphasize where my doubt is: I understand why theories like technicolour are thought to be "strongly coupled" but I do not at all understand why theories involving say Randall-Sundrum extra dimensional models are also so. When we say Randall-Sundrum warped extra dimension model, we mean a particular kind of background on which different types of interactions take place. But why should all interactions taking place in such a background will have to be strongly coupled? How does background spacetime decide whether an (or all) interaction(s) will be strongly coupled?
Or does this have anything to do with the fact that in (classical) GR, spacetime is dynamically determined and is coupled with matter and energy content of the universe and may be due to quantum gravity effects this strong/weak nature of interactions are/is manifested. But what is the way to explain that?
