    Get PDF
    We give an algebraic approach to the study of Hitchin pairs and prove the tensor product theorem for Higgs semistable Hitchin pairs over smooth projective curves defined over algebraically closed fields kk of characteristic 00 and characteristic pp, with pp satisfying some natural bounds. We also prove the corresponding theorem for polystable bundles.Comment: To appear in Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 61 (2011

    An analogue of the Narasimhan-Seshadri theorem and some applications

    Full text link
    We prove an analogue in higher dimensions of the classical Narasimhan-Seshadri theorem for strongly stable vector bundles of degree 0 on a smooth projective variety XX with a fixed ample line bundle Θ\Theta. As applications, over fields of characteristic zero, we give a new proof of the main theorem in a recent paper of Balaji and Koll\'ar and derive an effective version of this theorem; over uncountable fields of positive characteristics, if GG is a simple and simply connected algebraic group and the characteristic of the field is bigger than the Coxeter index of GG, we prove the existence of strongly stable principal GG bundles on smooth projective surfaces whose holonomy group is the whole of GG.Comment: 42 pages.

    Single Field Baryogenesis

    Full text link
    We propose a new variant of the Affleck-Dine baryogenesis mechanism in which a rolling scalar field couples directly to left- and right-handed neutrinos, generating a Dirac mass term through neutrino Yukawa interactions. In this setup, there are no explicitly CP violating couplings in the Lagrangian. The rolling scalar field is also taken to be uncharged under the B−LB - L quantum numbers. During the phase of rolling, scalar field decays generate a non-vanishing number density of left-handed neutrinos, which then induce a net baryon number density via electroweak sphaleron transitions.Comment: 4 pages, LaTe

    Semistable principal bundles-II (positive characteristics)

    Get PDF
    Let H be a semisimple algebraic group and let X be a smooth projective curve defined over an algebraically closed field k. The principal aim of this paper is to prove the existence and projectivity of the moduli spaces of principal H-bundles on X for fields of characteristic p, p > Ψ, where Ψ is a certain representation-theoretic index associated to H. The projectivity is a consequence of the semistable reduction theorem for principal H-bundles
