  • -Deformed Morse and Oscillator Potential

    • Abstract: We studied the -deformed Morse and harmonic oscillator systems with appropriate canonical commutation algebra. The analytic solutions for eigenfunctions and energy eigenvalues are worked out using time-independent Schrödinger equation and it is also noted that these wave functions are sensitive to variation in the parameters involved.

  • Asymptotic Behaviour of the QED Perturbation Series

    • Abstract: I will summarize the present state of a long-term effort to obtain information on the large-order asymptotic behaviour of the QED perturbation series through the effective action. Starting with the constant-field case, I will discuss the Euler-Heisenberg Lagrangian in various dimensions and up to the three-loop level. This Lagrangian holds the information on the N-photon amplitudes in the low-energy limit, and combining it with Spinor helicity methods explicit all-N results can be obtained at the one-loop and, for the “all +” amplitudes, also at the two-loop level. For the imaginary part of the Euler-Heisenberg Lagrangian, an all-loop formula has been conjectured independently by Affleck, Alvarez, and Manton for Scalar QED and by Lebedev and Ritus for Spinor QED. This formula can be related through a Borel dispersion relation to the leading large-N behaviour of the N-photon amplitudes. It is analytic in the fine structure constant, which is puzzling and suggests a diagrammatic investigation of the large-N limit in perturbation theory. Preliminary results of such a study for the dimensional case throw doubt on the validity of the conjecture.

  • Probing the Anomalous FCNC Couplings at Large Hadron Electron Collider

    • Abstract: We investigate the anomalous flavour changing neutral current (FCNC) interactions of top quark through the process . We calculate the signal and background cross sections in electron-proton collisions at Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) with a 7 TeV proton beam from the LHC and a new 60 GeV electron beam from energy recovery linac (ERL). We study the relevant background processes including one electron and three jets in the final state. The distributions of the invariant mass of two jets and an additional jet tagged as -jet are used to account for signal and background events after the analysis cuts. We find upper bounds on anomalous FCNC couplings of the order of at LHeC for a luminosity projection of   together with the fast simulation of detector effects. As a matter of interest, we analyze the sensitivity to the couplings , and find an enhanced sensitivity to at the LHeC when compared to the results from the HERA.

  • A Quantum Space behind Simple Quantum Mechanics

    • Abstract: In physics, experiments ultimately inform us about what constitutes a good theoretical model of any physical concept: physical space should be no exception. The best picture of physical space in Newtonian physics is given by the configuration space of a free particle (or the center of mass of a closed system of particles). This configuration space (as well as phase space) can be constructed as a representation space for the relativity symmetry. From the corresponding quantum symmetry, we illustrate the construction of a quantum configuration space, similar to that of quantum phase space, and recover the classical picture as an approximation through a contraction of the (relativity) symmetry and its representations. The quantum Hilbert space reduces into a sum of one-dimensional representations for the observable algebra, with the only admissible states given by coherent states and position eigenstates for the phase and configuration space pictures, respectively. This analysis, founded firmly on known physics, provides a quantum picture of physical space beyond that of a finite-dimensional manifold and provides a crucial first link for any theoretical model of quantum space-time at levels beyond simple quantum mechanics. It also suggests looking at quantum physics from a different perspective.

  • Phase Transition of Black Holes in Brans–Dicke Born–Infeld Gravity
           through Geometrical Thermodynamics

    • Abstract: Using the geometrical thermodynamic approach, we study phase transition of Brans–Dicke Born–Infeld black holes. We apply introduced methods and describe their shortcomings. We also use the recently proposed new method and compare its results with those of canonical ensemble. By considering the new method, we find that its Ricci scalar diverges in the places of phase transition and bound points. We also show that the bound point can be distinguished from the phase transition points through the sign of thermodynamical Ricci scalar around its divergencies.

  • Coulomb-Type Interaction under Lorentz Symmetry Breaking Effects

    • Abstract: Based on models of confinement of quarks, we analyse a relativistic scalar particle subject to a scalar potential proportional to the inverse of the radial distance and under the effects of the violation of the Lorentz symmetry. We show that the effects of the Lorentz symmetry breaking can induce a harmonic-type potential. Then, we solve the Klein-Gordon equation analytically and discuss the influence of the background of the violation of the Lorentz symmetry on the relativistic energy levels.

  • Supersymmetry across the Hadronic Spectrum

    • Abstract: Semiclassical light-front bound-state equations for hadrons are presented and compared with experiment. The essential dynamical feature is the holographic approach; that is, the hadronic equations in four-dimensional Minkowski space are derived as holograms of classical equations in a 5-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. The form of the equations is constrained by the imposed superconformal algebra, which fixes the form of the light-front potential. If conformal symmetry is strongly broken by heavy quark masses, the combination of supersymmetry and the classical action in the 5-dimensional space still fixes the form of the potential. By heavy quark symmetry, the strength of the potential is related to the heavy quark mass. The contribution is based on several recent papers in collaboration with Stan Brodsky and Guy de Téramond.

  • Exact Computations in Topological Abelian Chern-Simons and BF Theories

    • Abstract: We introduce Deligne cohomology that classifies fibre bundles over 3 manifolds endowed with connections. We show how the structure of Deligne cohomology classes provides a way to perform exact (nonperturbative) computations in Chern-Simons theory (BF theory, resp.) at the level of functional integrals. The partition functions (and observables) of these theories are strongly related to topological invariants well known to the mathematicians.

  • Mixing in the Minimal Flavor-Violating Two-Higgs-Doublet Models

    • Abstract: The two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM), as one of the simplest extensions of the Standard Model (SM), is obtained by adding another scalar doublet to the SM and is featured by a pair of charged Higgs, which could affect many low-energy processes. In the “Higgs basis” for a generic 2HDM, only one scalar doublet gets a nonzero vacuum expectation value and, under the criterion of minimal flavor violation, the other one is fixed to be either color-singlet or color-octet, which are named as type III and type C 2HDM, respectively. In this paper, we study the charged-Higgs effects of these two models on the mixing, an ideal process to probe New Physics (NP) beyond the SM. Firstly, we perform a complete one-loop computation of the box diagrams relevant to the mixing, keeping the mass and momentum of the external strange quark up to the second order. Together with the up-to-date theoretical inputs, we then give a detailed phenomenological analysis, in the cases of both real and complex Yukawa couplings of the charged Higgs to quarks. The parameter spaces allowed by the current experimental data on the mass difference and the CP-violating parameter are obtained and the differences between these two 2HDMs are investigated, which are helpful to distinguish them from each other from a phenomenological point of view.

  • Nonequilibrium Dynamics of the -Model Modes on the de Sitter Space

    • Abstract: The two-dimensional -model with the de Sitter target space is locally canonic in the north pole diamond of the Penrose diagram in the cosmological gauge. The left and right moving modes on the cylindrical base space are entangled among themselves and interact with the de Sitter metric. Firstly, we show that the untangled oscillators can be obtained from the entangled operators by applying a set of Bogoliubov transformations constrained by the requirement that the partial evolution generator be diagonal. Secondly, we determine the nonequilibrium dynamics of the untangled modes in the nonequilibrium thermofield dynamics formalism. The thermal modes are represented as thermal doublet oscillators that satisfy partial evolution equations of Heisenberg-type. From these we compute the local free one-body propagator of an arbitrary mode between two times. Thirdly, we discuss the field representation of the thermal modes. We show that there is a set of thermal doublet fields that satisfy the equal time canonical commutation relations, are solutions to the -model equations of motion, and can be decomposed in terms of thermal doublet oscillators. Finally, we construct a local partial evolution functional of Hamilton-like form for the thermal doublet fields.

  • Top Partner Production at Collider in the Littlest Higgs Model with
           -Parity

    • Abstract: In the framework of the littlest Higgs Model with -parity, we discuss the top partner production at future collider. We calculate the cross sections of the top partner production processes and associated production processes of Higgs and top partner under current constraints. Then, we investigate the observability of the -odd top partner pair production through the process in the dilepton channel for two -odd top partner masses  GeV at  TeV. We analyze the signal significance depending on the integrated luminosity and find that this signal is promising at the future high energy collider.

  • Dreibein as Prepotential for Three-Dimensional Yang-Mills Theory

    • Abstract: We advocate and develop the use of the dreibein (and the metric) as prepotential for three-dimensional SO() Yang-Mills theory. Since the dreibein transforms homogeneously under gauge transformation, the metric is gauge invariant. For a generic gauge potential, there is a unique dreibein on fixing the boundary condition. Topologically nontrivial monopole configurations are given by conformally flat metrics, with scalar fields capturing the monopole centres. Our approach also provides an ansatz for the gauge potential covering the topological aspects.

  • Big Bang as a Critical Point

    • Abstract: This article addresses the issue of possible gravitational phase transitions in the early universe. We suggest that a second-order phase transition observed in the Causal Dynamical Triangulations approach to quantum gravity may have a cosmological relevance. The phase transition interpolates between a nongeometric crumpled phase of gravity and an extended phase with classical properties. Transition of this kind has been postulated earlier in the context of geometrogenesis in the Quantum Graphity approach to quantum gravity. We show that critical behavior may also be associated with a signature change in Loop Quantum Cosmology, which occurs as a result of quantum deformation of the hypersurface deformation algebra. In the considered cases, classical space-time originates at the critical point associated with a second-order phase transition. Relation between the gravitational phase transitions and the corresponding change of symmetry is underlined.

  • Charges and Electromagnetic Radiation as Topological Excitations

    • Abstract: We discuss a model with stable topological solitons in Minkowski space with only three degrees of freedom, the rotational angles of a spatial Dreibein. This model has four types of solitons differing in two topological quantum numbers which we identify with electric charge and spin. The vacuum has a two-dimensional degeneracy leading to two types of massless excitations, characterised by a topological quantum number which could have a physical equivalent in the photon number.

  • The Bekenstein-Hawking Corpuscular Cascading from the Back-Reacted Black
           Hole

    • Abstract: Exciting peculiarities of Planck-scale physics have immediate effects on the Bekenstein-Hawking radiation emitted from black holes (BHs). In this paper, using the tunneling formalism, we determine the Bekenstein-Hawking temperature for the vector particles from a back-reacted black hole (BBH) constructed from a conformal scalar field surrounded by a BTZ (Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli) BH. Then, under the effect of the generalized uncertainty principle, we extend our calculations for scalar particles to understand the effects of quantum gravity. Then, we calculate an evaporation time for the BBH, the total number of Bekenstein-Hawking particles, and the quantum corrections of the number. We observe that remnants of the BH evaporation occur and that they affect the Bekenstein-Hawking temperature of the BBH as well as the total number of Bekenstein-Hawking particles.

  • Space-Time Defects and Group Momentum Space

    • Abstract: We study massive and massless conical defects in Minkowski and de Sitter spaces in various space-time dimensions. The energy momentum of a defect, considered as an (extended) relativistic object, is completely characterized by the holonomy of the connection associated with its space-time metric. The possible holonomies are given by Lorentz group elements, which are rotations and null rotations for massive and massless defects, respectively. In particular, if we fix the direction of propagation of a massless defect in -dimensional Minkowski space, then its space of holonomies is a maximal Abelian subgroup of the AN group, which corresponds to the well known momentum space associated with the -dimensional -Minkowski noncommutative space-time and -deformed Poincaré algebra. We also conjecture that massless defects in -dimensional de Sitter space can be analogously characterized by holonomies belonging to the same subgroup. This shows how group-valued momenta related to four-dimensional deformations of relativistic symmetries can arise in the description of motion of space-time defects.

  • A Review of Elliptic Flow of Light Nuclei in Heavy-Ion Collisions at RHIC
           and LHC Energies

    • Abstract: We present a review of the measurements of elliptic flow () of light nuclei (, , , , and ) from the RHIC and LHC experiments. Light (anti)nuclei have been compared with that of (anti)proton. We observed a similar trend in light nuclei to that in identified hadron with respect to the general observations such as dependence, low mass ordering, and centrality dependence. We also compared the difference of nuclei and antinuclei with the corresponding difference of of proton and antiproton at various collision energies. Qualitatively they depict similar behavior. We also compare the data on light nuclei to various theoretical models such as blast-wave and coalescence. We then present a prediction of for and using coalescence and blast-wave models.

  • Thermodynamic Analysis of Gravitational Field Equations in Lyra Manifold

    • Abstract: Considering the Einstein field equations in Lyra manifold and applying the unified first law of thermodynamics as well as the Clausius relation to the apparent horizon of FRW universe, we find the entropy of apparent horizon in Lyra manifold. In addition, the validity of second law of thermodynamics and its generalized form are also studied. Finally, we use the first law of thermodynamics in order to find the horizon entropy of static spherically symmetric spacetimes. Some results of considering (anti)de-Sitter and Schwarzschild metrics have also been addressed.

  • Noncommutative Spacetime Symmetries from Covariant Quantum Mechanics

    • Abstract: In the last decades, noncommutative spacetimes and their deformed relativistic symmetries have usually been studied in the context of field theory, replacing the ordinary Minkowski background with an algebra of noncommutative coordinates. However, spacetime noncommutativity can also be introduced into single-particle covariant quantum mechanics, replacing the commuting operators representing the particle’s spacetime coordinates with noncommuting ones. In this paper, we provide a full characterization of a wide class of physically sensible single-particle noncommutative spacetime models and the associated deformed relativistic symmetries. In particular, we prove that they can all be obtained from the standard Minkowski model and the usual Poincaré transformations via a suitable change of variables. Contrary to previous studies, we find that spacetime noncommutativity does not affect the dispersion relation of a relativistic quantum particle, but only the transformation properties of its spacetime coordinates under translations and Lorentz transformations.

  • Planck-Scale Dual-Curvature Lensing and Spacetime Noncommutativity

    • Abstract: It was recently realized that Planck-scale momentum-space curvature, which is expected in some approaches to the quantum-gravity problem, can produce dual-curvature lensing, a feature which mainly affects the direction of observation of particles emitted by very distant sources. Several gray areas remain in our understanding of dual-curvature lensing, including the possibility that it might be just a coordinate artifact and the possibility that it might be in some sense a by-product of the better studied dual-curvature redshift. We stress that data reported by the IceCube neutrino telescope should motivate a more vigorous effort of investigation of dual-curvature lensing, and we observe that studies of the recently proposed “-Minkowski noncommutative spacetime” could be valuable from this perspective. Through a dedicated -Minkowski analysis, we show that dual-curvature lensing is not merely a coordinate artifact and that it can be present even in theories without dual-curvature redshift.

  • SppC Based Energy Frontier Lepton-Proton Colliders: Luminosity and Physics

    • Abstract: Main parameters of Super proton-proton Collider (SppC) based lepton-proton colliders are estimated. For electron beam parameters, highest energy International Linear Collider (ILC) and Plasma Wake Field Accelerator-Linear Collider (PWFA-LC) options are taken into account. For muon beams, 1.5 TeV and 3 TeV center of mass energy muon collider parameters are used. In addition, ultimate collider which assumes construction of additional 50 TeV muon ring in the SppC tunnel is considered. It is shown that luminosity values exceeding can be achieved with moderate upgrade of the SppC proton beam parameters. Physics search potential of proposed lepton-proton colliders is illustrated by considering small Björken region as an example of SM physics and resonant production of color octet leptons as an example of BSM physics.

  • CFT and Logarithmic Corrections to the Black Hole Entropy Product Formula

    • Abstract: We examine the logarithmic corrections to the black hole (BH) entropy product formula of outer horizon and inner horizon by taking into account the effects of statistical quantum fluctuations around the thermal equilibrium and via conformal field theory (CFT). We argue that, in logarithmic corrections to the BH entropy product formula when calculated using CFT and taking into account the effects of quantum fluctuations around the thermal equilibrium, the formula should not be universal and it also should not be quantized. These results have been explicitly checked by giving several examples.

  • A Thermodynamic Approach to Holographic Dark Energy

    • Abstract: We propose a method to relate the holographic minimal information density to de Broglie’s wavelength at a given universe temperature . To figure this out, we assume that the thermal length of massive and massless constituents represents the cut-off scale of the holographic principle. To perform our analysis, we suppose two plausible universe volumes, that is, the adiabatic and the horizon volumes, that is, and , respectively, assuming zero spatial curvature. With these choices in mind, we evaluate the thermal lengths for massive and massless particles and we thus find two cosmological models associated with late and early cosmological epochs. We demonstrate that both models depend upon a free term which enters the temperature parametrization in terms of the redshift . For the two treatments, we show evolving dark energy terms which can be compared with the CDM quintessence paradigm when the barotropic factor takes the formal values and , respectively, for late and early eras. From our analyses, we nominate the two models as viable alternatives to dark energy determined from thermodynamics in the field of the holographic principle.

  • Emerging Translational Variance: Vacuum Polarization Energy of the Kink

    • Abstract: We propose an efficient method to compute the vacuum polarization energy of static field configurations that do not allow decomposition into symmetric and antisymmetric channels in one space dimension. In particular, we compute the vacuum polarization energy of the kink soliton in the model. We link the dependence of this energy on the position of the center of the soliton to the different masses of the quantum fluctuations at negative and positive spatial infinity.

  • A Correlation between the Higgs Mass and Dark Matter

    • Abstract: Depending on the value of the Higgs mass, the Standard Model acquires an unstable region at large Higgs field values due to RG running of couplings, which we evaluate at 2-loop order. For currently favored values of the Higgs mass, this renders the electroweak vacuum only metastable with a long lifetime. We argue on statistical grounds that the Higgs field would be highly unlikely to begin in the small field metastable region in the early universe, and thus some new physics should enter in the energy range of order of, or lower than, the instability scale to remove the large field unstable region. We assume that Peccei-Quinn (PQ) dynamics enters to solve the strong CP problem and, for a PQ-scale in this energy range, may also remove the unstable region. We allow the PQ-scale to scan and argue, again on statistical grounds, that its value in our universe should be of order of the instability scale, rather than (significantly) lower. Since the Higgs mass determines the instability scale, which is argued to set the PQ-scale, and since the PQ-scale determines the axion properties, including its dark matter abundance, we are led to a correlation between the Higgs mass and the abundance of dark matter. We find the correlation to be in good agreement with current data.

  • Dynamical System Analysis of Interacting Hessence Dark Energy in Gravity

    • Abstract: We have carried out dynamical system analysis of hessence field coupling with dark matter in gravity. We have analysed the critical points due to autonomous system. The resulting autonomous system is nonlinear. So, we have applied the theory of nonlinear dynamical system. We have noticed that very few papers are devoted to this kind of study. Maximum works in literature are done treating the dynamical system as done in linear dynamical analysis, which are unable to predict correct evolution. Our work is totally different from those kinds of works. We have used nonlinear dynamical system theory, developed till date, in our analysis. This approach gives totally different stable solutions, in contrast to what the linear analysis would have predicted. We have discussed the stability analysis in detail due to exponential potential through computational method in tabular form and analysed the evolution of the universe. Some plots are drawn to investigate the behaviour of the system (this plotting technique is different from usual phase plot and that devised by us). Interestingly, the analysis shows that the universe may resemble the “cosmological constant” like evolution (i.e., CDM model is a subset of the solution set). Also, all the fixed points of our model are able to avoid Big Rip singularity.

  • -Dimensional Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau Oscillator under a Magnetic Field in the
           Presence of a Minimal Length in the Noncommutative Space

    • Abstract: Using the momentum space representation, we study the (2 + 1)-dimensional Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau oscillator for spin 0 particle under a magnetic field in the presence of a minimal length in the noncommutative space. The explicit form of energy eigenvalues is found, and the wave functions and the corresponding probability density are reported in terms of the Jacobi polynomials. Additionally, we also discuss the special cases and depict the corresponding numerical results.
