Abstract

We examine the oblique correction phenomenology of one-family technicolor with light pseudo Nambu-Goldstone bosons. From loop calculations based on a gauged chiral Lagrangian for technicolor we are led to conclude that even though loops with light Nambu-Goldstone bosons give a negative contribution to S measured at the Z pole, this effect is not sufficiently large to unambiguously counter the "S argument" against one-family technicolor. This result cannot be guessed a priori, but must be explicitly calculated. Our analysis entails an extended version of the STU oblique parametrization of Peskin and Takeuchi. In principle, this extended formalism (STUVWX) must be used when there are light new particles in loops.
