  • Spin and Pseudospin Symmetry in Generalized Manning-Rosen Potential

    • Abstract: Spin and pseudospin symmetric Dirac spinors and energy relations are obtained by solving the Dirac equation with centrifugal term for a new suggested generalized Manning-Rosen potential which includes the potentials describing the nuclear and molecular structures. To solve the Dirac equation the Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used and also applied the Pekeris approximation to the centrifugal term. Energy eigenvalues for bound states are found numerically in the case of spin and pseudospin symmetry. Besides, the data attained in the present study are compared with the results obtained in the previous studies and it is seen that our data are consistent with the earlier ones.

  • Energy Conditions of Built-In Inflation Models in Gravitational Theories

    • Abstract: We examine the validity of energy conditions of built-in inflation models in gravitational theories. For this purpose, we formulate the inequalities of energy conditions by assuming the flat and nonflat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe. We find the feasible constraints on the constants of integration and evaluate their possible ranges graphically for the consistency of these energy conditions for flat, closed, and open universes. We constrain the constants of integration for flat space-time from the inflation epoch while the closed and open universe constants are constrained from late universe.

  • Resonance and Associated Production at Future Higgs Boson Factory: ILC and
           CLIC

    • Abstract: We study the prospects of the model with an additional boson to be a Higgs boson factory at high-energy and high-luminosity linear electron positron colliders, such as the ILC and CLIC, through the Higgs-strahlung process , including both the resonant and the nonresonant effects. We evaluate the total cross section of and we calculate the total number of events for integrated luminosities of 500–2000 fb−1 and center of mass energies between 500 and 3000 GeV. We find that the total number of expected events can reach 106, which is a very optimistic scenario and it would be possible to perform precision measurements for both and Higgs boson in future high-energy colliders experiments.

  • Vacuum Condensate, Geometric Phase, Unruh Effect, and Temperature
           Measurement

    • Abstract: In our previous work the possibility to use the Aharonov-Anandan invariant as a tool in the analysis of disparate systems has been shown, including Hawking and Unruh effects, as well as graphene physics and thermal states. We show that the vacuum condensation, characterizing such systems, is also related with geometric phases and we analyze the properties of the geometric phase of systems represented by mixed state and undergoing a nonunitary evolution. In particular, we consider two-level atoms accelerated by an external potential and interacting with a thermal state. We propose the realization of Mach-Zehnder interferometers which can prove the existence of the Unruh effect and can allow very precise measurements of temperature.

  • Beam Purity for Light Dark Matter Search in Beam Dump Experiments

    • Abstract: This paper reviews the search for light dark matter in beam dump experiments with a special emphasis on the necessity of beam purity for precise background rejection at the sensitivities aimed at these experiments. As a case study we cite the P348 experiment which has test beam time in Fall 2015 at the SPS H4 beam line at CERN and aims to search for the gauge boson, , which as per one model of dark matter mediates a weak interaction between ordinary matter and dark matter via mixing of these “dark photons” with ordinary photon. The experiment aims to probe the still unexplored area of mixing strength and masses  MeV by using 10–300 GeV electron beam from the CERN SPS. This paper presents the simulation results for rejection of background due to beam impurity, by tracking the incoming particles with Micromegas detectors at a level <.

  • On Productions of Net-Baryons in Central Au-Au Collisions at RHIC Energies

    • Abstract: The transverse momentum and rapidity distributions of net-baryons (baryons minus antibaryons) produced in central gold-gold (Au-Au) collisions at 62.4 and 200 GeV are analyzed in the framework of a multisource thermal model. Each source in the model is described by the Tsallis statistics to extract the effective temperature and entropy index from the transverse momentum distribution. The two parameters are used as input to describe the rapidity distribution and to extract the rapidity shift and contribution ratio. Then, the four types of parameters are used to structure some scatter plots of the considered particles in some three-dimensional (3D) spaces at the stage of kinetic freeze-out, which are expected to show different characteristics for different particles and processes. The related methodology can be used in the analyses of particle production and event holography, which are useful for us to better understand the interacting mechanisms.

  • Virial Theorem for Nonrelativistic Quantum Fields in Spatial Dimensions

    • Abstract: The virial theorem for nonrelativistic complex fields in spatial dimensions and with arbitrary many-body potential is derived, using path-integral methods and scaling arguments recently developed to analyze quantum anomalies in low-dimensional systems. The potential appearance of a Jacobian due to a change of variables in the path-integral expression for the partition function of the system is pointed out, although in order to make contact with the literature most of the analysis deals with the case. The virial theorem is recast into a form that displays the effect of microscopic scales on the thermodynamics of the system. From the point of view of this paper the case usually considered, , is not natural, and the generalization to the case is briefly presented.

  • Noether Gauge Symmetry of Dirac Field in (2 + 1)-Dimensional Gravity

    • Abstract: We consider a gravitational theory including a Dirac field that is nonminimally coupled to gravity in 2 + 1 dimensions. Noether gauge symmetry approach can be used to fix the form of coupling function and the potential of the Dirac field and to obtain a constant of motion for the dynamical equations. In the context of (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity, we investigate cosmological solutions of the field equations using these forms obtained by the existence of Noether gauge symmetry. In this picture, it is shown that, for the nonminimal coupling case, the cosmological solutions indicate both an early-time inflation and late-time acceleration for the universe.

  • Production of Kaon and in Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions at Ultrarelativistic
           Energy from a Blast-Wave Model

    • Abstract: The particle production of Kaon and is studied in nucleus-nucleus collisions at relativistic energy based on a chemical equilibrium blast-wave model. The transverse momentum spectra of Kaon and at the kinetic freeze-out stage from our model are in good agreement with the experimental results. The kinetic freeze-out parameters of temperature and radial flow parameter are presented for the FOPI, RHIC, and LHC energies. And the resonance decay effect is also discussed. The systematic study for beam energy dependence of the strangeness particle production will help us to better understand the properties of the matter created in heavy-ion collisions at the kinetic freeze-out stage.

  • Pion Transverse Momentum Spectrum, Elliptic Flow, and Interferometry in
           the Granular Source Model for RHIC and LHC Heavy Ion Collisions

    • Abstract: We systematically investigate the pion transverse momentum spectrum, elliptic flow, and Hanbury-Brown-Twiss (HBT) interferometry in the granular source model for the heavy ion collisions of Au-Au at  GeV and Pb-Pb at  TeV with different centralities. The granular source model can well reproduce the experimental results of the heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We examine the parameters involved in the granular source model. The experimental data of the momentum spectrum, elliptic flow, and HBT radii for the two collision energies and different centralities impose very strict constraints on the model parameters. They exhibit certain regularities for collision centrality and energy. The space-time structure and expansion velocities of the granular sources for the heavy ion collisions at the RHIC and LHC energies with different centralities are investigated.

  • Recognizing Critical Behavior amidst Minijets at the Large Hadron Collider

    • Abstract: The transition from quarks to hadrons in a heavy-ion collision at high energy is usually studied in two different contexts that involve very different transverse scales: local and nonlocal. Models that are concerned with the spectra and azimuthal anisotropy belong to the former, that is, hadronization at a local point in space, such as the recombination model. The nonlocal problem has to do with quark-hadron phase transition where collective behavior through near-neighbor interaction can generate patterns of varying sizes in the space. The two types of problems are put together in this paper both as brief reviews separately and to discuss how they are related to each other. In particular, we ask how minijets produced at LHC can affect the investigation of multiplicity fluctuations as signals of critical behavior. It is suggested that the existing data from LHC have sufficient multiplicities in small intervals to make the observation of distinctive features of clustering of soft particles, as well as voids, feasible that characterize the critical behavior at phase transition from quarks to hadrons, without any ambiguity posed by the clustering of jet particles.

  • The Unified Hydrodynamics and the Pseudorapidity Distributions in Heavy
           Ion Collisions at BNL-RHIC and CERN-LHC Energies

    • Abstract: The charged particles produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions are divided into two parts. One is from the hot and dense matter created in collisions. The other is from leading particles. The hot and dense matter is assumed to expand according to unified hydrodynamics and freezes out into charged particles from a space-like hypersurface with a fixed proper time of . The leading particles are conventionally taken as the particles which inherit the quantum numbers of colliding nucleons and carry off most of incident energy. The rapidity distributions of the charged particles from these two parts are formulated analytically, and a comparison is made between the theoretical results and the experimental measurements performed in Au-Au and Pb-Pb collisions at the respective BNL-RHIC and CERN-LHC energies. The theoretical results are well consistent with experimental data.

  • Transverse Momentum Spectra of and at Midrapidity in + Au, Cu + Cu, and

    • Abstract: We analyze transverse momentum spectra of and at midrapidity in + Au, Cu + Cu, and collisions at  GeV in the formworks of Tsallis statistics and Boltzmann statistics, respectively. Both of them can describe the transverse momentum spectra and extract the thermodynamics parameters of matter evolution in the collisions. The parameters are helpful for us to understand the thermodynamics factors of the particle production.

  • Properties of Full Jet in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions from Parton
           Scatterings

    • Abstract: The properties of fully reconstructed jet are investigated in p + p and Pb + Pb collisions at = 2.76 TeV within a multiphase transport (AMPT) model with both partonic scatterings and hadronic rescatterings. A large transverse momentum () asymmetry of dijet or photon-jet arises from the strong interactions between jet and partonic matter. The -dependent jet fragmentation function in Pb + Pb collisions is decomposed into two contributions from different jet hadronization mechanisms, that is, fragmentation versus coalescence. The medium modification of differential jet shape displays that the jet energy is redistributed towards a larger radius owing to jet-medium interactions in heavy-ion collisions. Jet triangular azimuthal anisotropy coefficient, , which shows a smaller magnitude than the elliptic coefficient , decreases more quickly with increasing jet , which can be attributed to a path-length effect of jet energy loss. All of these properties of full jet are consistent with the jet energy loss mechanism in a stronglyinteracting partonic matter in high-energy heavy-ion collisions.

  • Azimuthally Integrated HBT Parameters for Charged Pions in Nucleus-Nucleus
           Interactions versus Collision Energy

    • Abstract: The energy dependence of spatiotemporal characteristics of particle emission region is studied for charged pions produced in nuclear collisions. No dramatic change is observed for the HBT parameters with increasing of the center-of-mass (c.m.) energy per nucleon-nucleon pair, , for of a few GeV to a few TeV. The emission duration is obtained to be almost independent of the c.m. energy within the measurement uncertainties. The analytic function is suggested for a smooth approximation of the energy dependence of the main HBT parameters. The fits demonstrate reasonable agreement with the experimental data. Predictions are made for future LHC and FCC experiments.

  • Freeze-Out Parameters in Heavy-Ion Collisions at AGS, SPS, RHIC, and LHC
           Energies

    • Abstract: We review the chemical and kinetic freeze-out conditions in high energy heavy-ion collisions for AGS, SPS, RHIC, and LHC energies. Chemical freeze-out parameters are obtained using produced particle yields in central collisions while the corresponding kinetic freeze-out parameters are obtained using transverse momentum distributions of produced particles. For chemical freeze-out, different freeze-out scenarios are discussed such as single and double/flavor dependent freeze-out surfaces. Kinetic freeze-out parameters are obtained by doing hydrodynamic inspired blast wave fit to the transverse momentum distributions. The beam energy and centrality dependence of transverse energy per charged particle multiplicity are studied to address the constant energy per particle freeze-out criteria in heavy-ion collisions.

  • A Review on ϕ Meson Production in Heavy-Ion Collision

    • Abstract: The main aim of the relativistic heavy-ion experiment is to create extremely hot and dense matter and study the QCD phase structure. With this motivation, experimental program started in the early 1990s at the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) and the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) followed by Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven and recently at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. These experiments allowed us to study the QCD matter from center-of-mass energies () 4.75 GeV to 2.76 TeV. The ϕ meson, due to its unique properties, is considered as a good probe to study the QCD matter created in relativistic collisions. In this paper we present a review on the measurements of ϕ meson production in heavy-ion experiments. Mainly, we discuss the energy dependence of ϕ meson invariant yield and the production mechanism, strangeness enhancement, parton energy loss, and partonic collectivity in nucleus-nucleus collisions. Effect of later stage hadronic rescattering on elliptic flow () of proton is also discussed relative to corresponding effect on ϕ meson .

  • The Profile of Inelastic Collisions from Elastic Scattering Data

    • Abstract: Using the unitarity relation in combination with experimental data about the elastic scattering in the diffraction cone, it is shown how the shape and the darkness of the inelastic interaction region of colliding protons change with increase of their energies. In particular, the collisions become fully absorptive at small impact parameters at LHC energies that results in some special features of inelastic processes. Possible evolution of this shape with the dark core at the LHC to the fully transparent one at higher energies is discussed that implies that the terminology of the black disk would be replaced by the black toroid. The approach to asymptotics is disputed. The ratio of the real to imaginary parts of the nonforward elastic scattering amplitude is briefly discussed. All the conclusions are only obtained in the framework of the indubitable unitarity condition using experimental data about the elastic scattering of protons in the diffraction cone without any reference to quantum chromodynamics (QCD) or phenomenological approaches.

  • Energy Dependence of Slope Parameter in Elastic Nucleon-Nucleon Scattering

    • Abstract: The diffraction slope parameter is investigated for elastic proton-proton and proton-antiproton scattering based on all the available experimental data at low and intermediate momentum transfer values. Energy dependence of the elastic diffraction slope is approximated by various analytic functions. The expanded “standard” logarithmic approximations with minimum number of free parameters allow description of the experimental slopes in all the available energy range reasonably. The estimations of asymptotic shrinkage parameter are obtained for various domains based on all the available experimental data. Various approximations differ from each other both in the low energy and very high energy domains. Predictions for diffraction slope parameter are obtained for elastic proton-proton scattering from NICA up to future collider (FCC/VLHC) energies, for proton-antiproton elastic reaction in FAIR energy domain for various approximation functions.

  • Exact Solution of the Curved Dirac Equation in Polar Coordinates: Master
           Function Approach

    • Abstract: We show that the () curved Dirac equation in polar coordinates can be transformed into Schrodinger-like differential equation for upper spinor component. We compare this equation with the Schrodinger equation derived from shape invariance property of second order differential equations of mathematical physics. This formalism enables us to determine the electrostatic potential and relativistic energy in terms of master function and corresponding weight function. We also obtain the spinor wave function in terms of orthogonal polynomials.

  • Bianchi Type-V Bulk Viscous Cosmic String in Gravity with Time Varying
           Deceleration Parameter

    • Abstract: We study the Bianchi type-V string cosmological model with bulk viscosity in theory of gravity by considering a special form and linearly varying deceleration parameter. This is an extension of the earlier work of Naidu et al., 2013, where they have constructed the model by considering a constant deceleration parameter. Here we find that the cosmic strings do not survive in both models. In addition we study some physical and kinematical properties of both models. We observe that in one of our models these properties are identical to the model obtained by Naidu et al., 2013, and in the other model the behavior of these parameters is different.

  • Effects of the Variation of SUSY Breaking Scale on Yukawa and Gauge
           Couplings Unification

    • Abstract: The present analysis addresses an interesting primary question on how do the gauge and Yukawa couplings unification scales vary with varying SUSY breaking scales , assuming a single scale for all supersymmetric particles. It is observed that the gauge coupling unification scale increases with whereas third-generation Yukawa couplings unification scale decreases with . The rising of the unification scale and also the mass of the color triplet multiplets is necessary to increase the proton decay lifetime; the analysis is carried out with two-loop RGEs for the gauge and Yukawa couplings within the minimal supersymmetric SU(5) model, while ignoring for simplicity the threshold effects of the heavy particles, which could be as large as a few percentages.

  • Form Factor Near the Mass Shell

    • Abstract: The generalized Ward-Takahashi identity (gWTI) in the pion sector for broken isotopic symmetry is derived and used for the model-independent calculation of the longitudinal form factor of the vector vertex. The on-shell is found to be proportional to the mass difference of the pions and the difference between the vector isospin and scalar isospin pion radii. A numerical estimate of the form factor yields a value two times higher than the previous estimate from the quark model. Off-shell form factors are known to be ambiguous because of the gauge dependence and the freedom in the parameterization of the fields. The near-mass-shell appears to be an exception, allowing for experimental verification of the consequences of the gWTI. We calculate the near-mass-shell using the gWTI and dispersion techniques. The results are discussed in the context of the conservation of vector current (CVC) hypothesis.

  • Similarity Solution for Free Convection Flow of a Micropolar Fluid under
           Convective Boundary Condition via Lie Scaling Group Transformations

    • Abstract: The free convective flow of an incompressible micropolar fluid along permeable vertical plate under the convective boundary condition is investigated. The Lie scaling group of transformations is applied to get the similarity representation for the system of partial differential equations and then the resulting systems of equations are solved using spectral quasi-linearisation method. A quantitative comparison of the numerical results is made with previously published results for special cases and the results are found to be in good agreement. The results of the physical parameters on the developments of flow, temperature, concentration, skinfriction, wall couple stress, heat transfer, and mass transfer characteristics along vertical plate are given and the salient features are discussed.

  • Discovery Potential for the Neutral Charmonium-Like by Annihilation

    • Abstract: Inspired by the observation of charmonium-like , we explore the discovery potential of the neutral production by antiproton-proton annihilation with an effective Lagrangian approach. By investigating the process including the signal and background contributions, it is found that the center of mass energy ≃ 4.0–4.5 GeV is the best energy window for searching the neutral , where the signal can be clearly distinguished from background. The relevant calculations not only are helpful to search for the neutral in the future experiment but also will promote the understanding of the nature and production mechanism of neutral better.

  • Quasi-Normal Modes: The “Electrons” of Black Holes as
           “Gravitational Atoms”' Implications for the Black Hole
           Information Puzzle

    • Abstract: Some recent important results on black hole (BH) quantum physics concerning the BH effective state and the natural correspondence between Hawking radiation and BH quasi-normal modes (QNMs) are reviewed, clarified, and refined. Such a correspondence permits one to naturally interpret QNMs as quantum levels in a semiclassical model. This is a model of BH somewhat similar to the historical semiclassical model of the structure of a hydrogen atom introduced by Bohr in 1913. In a certain sense, QNMs represent the “electron” which jumps from a level to another one and the absolute values of the QNMs frequencies, “triggered” by emissions (Hawking radiation) and absorption of particles, represent the energy “shells” of the “gravitational hydrogen atom.” Important consequences on the BH information puzzle are discussed. In fact, it is shown that the time evolution of this “Bohr-like BH model” obeys a time dependent Schrödinger equation which permits the final BH state to be a pure quantum state instead of a mixed one. Thus, information comes out in BH evaporation in agreement with the assumption by ’t Hooft that Schröedinger equations can be used universally for all dynamics in the universe. We also show that, in addition, our approach solves the entanglement problem connected with the information paradox.

  • A Study of Transverse Momentum Distributions of Jets Produced in -, -,
           -Au, Au-Au, and Pb-Pb Collisions at High Energies

    • Abstract: The transverse momentum distributions of jets produced in -, -, -Au, Au-Au, and Pb-Pb collisions at high energies with different selected conditions are analyzed by using a multisource thermal model. The multicomponent (mostly two-component) Erlang distribution used in our description is in good agreement with the experimental data measured by the STAR, D0, CDF II, ALICE, ATLAS, and CMS Collaborations. Related parameters are extracted from the transverse momentum distributions and some information on different interacting systems is obtained. In the two-component Erlang distribution, the first component has usually two or more sources which are contributed by strong scattering interactions between two quarks or more quarks and gluons, while the second component has mostly two sources which are contributed by harder head-on scattering between two quarks.

  • Effect of Generalized Uncertainty Principle on Main-Sequence Stars and
           White Dwarfs

    • Abstract: This paper addresses the effect of generalized uncertainty principle, emerged from different approaches of quantum gravity within Planck scale, on thermodynamic properties of photon, nonrelativistic ideal gases, and degenerate fermions. A modification in pressure, particle number, and energy density are calculated. Astrophysical objects such as main-sequence stars and white dwarfs are examined and discussed as an application. A modification in Lane-Emden equation due to a change in a polytropic relation caused by the presence of quantum gravity is investigated. The applicable range of quantum gravity parameters is estimated. The bounds in the perturbed parameters are relatively large but they may be considered reasonable values in the astrophysical regime.
