The standard approach to build a quantum field theory is to have free fields and interactions among them as separate parts such that the interactions could always be switched off. However, in an extreme case, a composite field with tightly bound ingredient particles may not have a free particle description. Understanding how such exotic composite fields manifest in observed universe is an interesting question both for theoretical understanding and new physics explorations. A model is studied to probe effects of such exotics in presence of the Standard Model Higgs using the method of lattice simulations. The goal is to probe the model by calculating one and two point correlation functions in different regions of the parameter space of the model.
