    ATLAS on-Z Excess Through Vector-Like Quarks

    Get PDF
    We investigate the possibility that the excess observed in the leptonic-Z+Z +jets +\slashed{E}_T ATLAS SUSY search is due to pair productions of a vector-like quark UU decaying to the first-generation quarks and ZZ boson. We find that the excess can be explained within the 2σ\sigma (up to 1.4σ\sigma) level while evading the constraints from the other LHC searches. The preferred range of the mass and branching ratio are 610<mU<760610 < m_{U} < 760 GeV and Br(U→Zq)>0.3{\rm Br}(U \rightarrow Z q) > 0.3-0.450.45, respectively.Comment: 8 pages, 2 figure

    Heavy WIMP through Higgs portal at the LHC

    Get PDF
    LHC constraints on Higgs-portal WIMPs are studied. Scalar, vector and anti-symmetric tensor fields are considered. They are assumed to be heavier than a half of the Higgs boson mass. We investigate 8 TeV LHC results on signatures of the vector boson fusion, mono-jet and associated production of the ZZ boson, which proceed via virtual exchange of the Higgs boson. We show that Higgs-portal interactions of the vector and tensor WIMPs are constrained to be less than 0.43 and 0.16, respectively, while those for the scalar are very weak. Prospects of the 14 TeV LHC are also discussed.Comment: 14 pages, 3 figure

    Unitarity Bounds on Dark Matter Effective Interactions at LHC

    Get PDF
    The perturbative unitarity bound is studied in the monojet process at LHC. The production of the dark matter is described by the low-energy effective theory. The analysis of the dark matter signal is not validated, if the unitarity condition is violated. It is shown that the current LHC analysis the effective theory breaks down, at least, when the dark matter is lighter than O(100) GeV. Future prospects for s\sqrt{s} = 14 TeV are also discussed. The result is independent of physics in high energy scales.Comment: 14 pages, 12 figures; v2: footnotes and references are added; figures are slightly change

    Radiative CP Phases in Supergravity Theories

    Get PDF
    In this letter, we point out that possible sources of CP violation originate from radiative corrections to soft terms which are ubiquitous in supergravity theories and also in other high-energy frameworks of supersymmetry breaking. With these radiative phases of gaugino masses and scalar couplings, a complex phase of Higgs holomorphic mass parameter is generated via renormalization-group running down to low energy. It is found that its phase value is mainly controlled by wino as well as gluino, which generally receive different radiative corrections to their complex phases, even if the leading part of mass parameters follow from the universality hypothesis. The radiatively generated phases are constrained by the existing experimental bounds on electric dipole moments, and may be detectable in future measurements. They are also found to be available for the cancellation mechanism to be worked.Comment: 14 pages, 5 figures, references adde

    Future Prospects for Stau in Higgs Coupling to Di-photon

    Get PDF
    We study future prospects of the stau which contributes to the Higgs coupling to di-photon. The coupling is sensitive to new physics and planned to be measured at percent levels in future colliders. We show that, if the excess of the coupling is measured to be larger than 4 %, the lightest stau is predicted to be lighter than about 200 GeV by taking vacuum meta-stability conditions into account. Such a stau can be discovered at ILC. Moreover, we show how accurately the stau contribution to the coupling can be reconstructed from the information that is available at ILC. We also argue that, if the stau mixing angle is measured, the mass of the heaviest stau can be predicted by measuring the Higgs coupling, even when the heaviest stau is not yet discovered at the early stage of ILC.Comment: 16 pages, 4 figures, 1 table; references added, to be published in JHE
