Dark photon decay beyond the Euler-Heisenberg limit

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Samuel D. McDermott, Hiren H. Patel, and Harikrishnan Ramani

We calculate the exact width for a dark photon decaying to three photons at one-loop order for dark photon masses ${m}^{′}$ below the ${e}^{+}{e}^{−}$ production threshold of $2{m}_{e}$. We find substantial deviations from previous results derived from the lowest order Euler-Heisenberg effective Lag...

NNLO QCD corrections to associated $WH$ production and $H→b\overline{b}$ decay

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Fabrizio Caola, Gionata Luisoni, Kirill Melnikov, and Raoul Röntsch

We present a computation of the next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO) QCD corrections to the production of a Higgs boson in association with a $W$ boson at the LHC and the subsequent decay of the Higgs boson into a $b\overline{b}$ pair, treating the $b$ quarks as massless. We consider various kinemat...

Twist-3 contributions to wide-angle photoproduction of pions

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): P. Kroll and K. Passek-Kumerički

We investigate wide-angle ${π}^{0}$ photoproduction within the handbag approach to twist-3 accuracy. In contrast to earlier work both the 2-particle as well as the 3-particle twist-3 contributions are taken into account. It is shown that both are needed for consistent results that respect gauge inva...

Fully differential Higgs boson pair production in association with a $Z$ boson at next-to-next-to-leading order in QCD

Author(s): Hai Tao Li, Chong Sheng Li, and Jian Wang

We present a fully differential next-to-next-to-leading order QCD calculation of the Higgs pair production in association with a $Z$ boson at hadron colliders, which is important for probing the trilinear Higgs self-coupling.

Author(s): Tommi Alanne, Nicolas Bizot, Giacomo Cacciapaglia, and Francesco Sannino

We provide a general classification of template operators, up to next-to-leading order, that appear in chiral perturbation theories based on the two flavor patterns of spontaneous symmetry breaking $\mathrm{SU}({N}_{\mathrm{F}})/\mathrm{Sp}({N}_{\mathrm{F}})$ and $\mathrm{SU}({N}_{\mathrm{F}})/\math...

Cosmological bounds on non-Abelian dark forces

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Lindsay Forestell, David E. Morrissey, and Kris Sigurdson

Non-Abelian dark gauge forces that do not couple directly to ordinary matter may be realized in nature. The minimal form of such a dark force is a pure Yang-Mills theory. If the dark sector is reheated in the early Universe, it will be realized as a set of dark gluons at high temperatures and as a c...

Lepton-number-charged scalars and neutrino beamstrahlung

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Jeffrey M. Berryman, André de Gouvêa, Kevin J. Kelly, and Yue Zhang

Experimentally, baryon number minus lepton number, $B−L$, appears to be a good global symmetry of nature. We explore the consequences of the existence of gauge-singlet scalar fields charged under $B−L$–dubbed lepton-number-charged scalars (LeNCSs)—and postulate that these couple to the standard mode...

Spontaneous $CP$-violation in the simplest little Higgs model and its future collider tests: The scalar sector

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Ying-nan Mao

We propose spontaneous $CP$ violation in the simplest little Higgs model. In this model, the pseudoscalar field can acquire a nonzero vacuum expectation value. This leads to a mixing between the two scalars with different $CP$ charge, which means that spontaneous $CP$ violation occurs. It is also a ...

Recently, it was shown in K. Agashe et al. [Phys. Rev.

A natural seesaw mechanism for obtaining the observed size of SM neutrino masses can arise in a warped extra-dimensional/composite Higgs framework.

Author(s): B. Theodore Zhang, Kohta Murase, Shigeo S. Kimura, Shunsaku Horiuchi, and Peter Mészáros

Recent results from the Pierre Auger Collaboration have shown that the composition of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) becomes gradually heavier with increasing energy. Although gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been promising sources of UHECRs, it is still unclear whether they can account for the A...

Inflaton fragmentation in $E$ models of cosmological $α$-attractors

2018-04-23T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Fuminori Hasegawa and Jeong-Pyong Hong

Cosmological $α$-attractors are observationally favored due to the asymptotic flatness of the potential. Since its flatness induces the negative pressure, the coherent oscillation of the inflaton field could fragment into quasistable localized objects called I-balls (or “oscillons”). We investigated...

The gravitational entropy and no-hair conjectures seem to predict contradictory future states of our Universe. The growth of the gravitational entropy is associated with the growth of inhomogeneity, while the no-hair conjecture argues that a universe dominated by dark energy should asymptotically ap...

The Rindler horizon in Minkowski spacetime can be implanted with supertranslation hair by a matter shock wave without planar symmetry, and the hair is observable as a supertranslation memory on the Rindler family of uniformly linearly accelerated observers. We show that this classical memory is acco...

Thermodynamic equilibrium with acceleration and the Unruh effect

2018-04-16T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): F. Becattini

We address the problem of thermodynamic equilibrium with constant acceleration along the velocity field lines in a quantum relativistic statistical mechanics framework. We show that for a free scalar quantum field, after vacuum subtraction, all mean values vanish when the local temperature $T$ is as...

Greybody factors for a minimally coupled scalar field in a three-dimensional Einstein-power-Maxwell black hole background

2018-04-16T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Grigoris Panotopoulos and Ángel Rincón

In the present work we study the propagation of a probe minimally coupled scalar field in Einstein-power-Maxwell charged black hole background in ($1+2$) dimensions. We find analytical expressions for the reflection coefficient as well as for the absorption cross section in the low energy regime, an...

$\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetric mechanics on curved spaces

2018-04-16T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Nikolay Kozyrev, Sergey Krivonos, Olaf Lechtenfeld, Armen Nersessian, and Anton Sutulin

We present $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetric mechanics on $n$-dimensional Riemannian manifolds constructed within the Hamiltonian approach. The structure functions entering the supercharges and the Hamiltonian obey modified covariant constancy equations as well as modified Witten–Dijkgraaf–Verlinde–Ver...

Abelian tensor models on the lattice

2018-04-16T10:00:00+00:00

Author(s): Soumyadeep Chaudhuri, Victor I. Giraldo-Rivera, Anosh Joseph, R. Loganayagam, and Junggi Yoon

We consider a chain of Abelian Klebanov-Tarnopolsky fermionic tensor models coupled through quartic nearest-neighbor interactions. We characterize the gauge-singlet spectrum for small chains ($L=2,3,4,5$) and observe that the spectral statistics exhibits strong evidence in favor of quasi-many-body l...
