Abstract

We derive the S parameter of the electroweak radiative corrections in a scaled-QCD technicolour and using a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model for hadronic low energy interactions. In this framework deviations from low energy QCD can be quantitatively deduced. We induce explicit chiral symmetry breaking in the NJL model through the current-quarks mass term. It is shown that the prediction for the S parameter can be sensitively reduced with respect to the chiral prediction.
