    LHC results and prospects: Beyond Standard Model

    Full text link
    We present the results and prospects for searches beyond the Standard Model (SM) at the LHC by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. The minimal supersymmetric extension of the SM has been investigated in various configurations and lower limits are set on the s-particle masses. The searches for other scenarios of physics beyond the SM are also presented and lower limits on the mass scale are derived in a large variety of models (new heavy gauge bosons, extra-dimensions, compositeness or dark matter). The prospects for physics using 300 /fb and 3000 /fb of data at the high luminosity LHC are also shown.Comment: Talk presented at the International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders (LCWS13), Tokyo, Japan, 11-15 November 201

    Analyticity in spaces of convergent power series and applications

    Full text link
    We study the analytic structure of the space of germs of an analytic function at the origin of \ww C^{\times m} , namely the space \germ{\mathbf{z}} where \mathbf{z}=\left(z\_{1},\cdots,z\_{m}\right) , equipped with a convenient locally convex topology. We are particularly interested in studying the properties of analytic sets of \germ{\mathbf{z}} as defined by the vanishing locus of analytic maps. While we notice that \germ{\mathbf{z}} is not Baire we also prove it enjoys the analytic Baire property: the countable union of proper analytic sets of \germ{\mathbf{z}} has empty interior. This property underlies a quite natural notion of a generic property of \germ{\mathbf{z}} , for which we prove some dynamics-related theorems. We also initiate a program to tackle the task of characterizing glocal objects in some situations

    Numerical simulations of galaxy evolution in cosmological context

    Full text link
    Large volume cosmological simulations succeed in reproducing the large-scale structure of the Universe. However, they lack resolution and may not take into account all relevant physical processes to test if the detail properties of galaxies can be explained by the CDM paradigm. On the other hand, galaxy-scale simulations could resolve this in a robust way but do not usually include a realistic cosmological context. To study galaxy evolution in cosmological context, we use a new method that consists in coupling cosmological simulations and galactic scale simulations. For this, we record merger and gas accretion histories from cosmological simulations and re-simulate at very high resolution the evolution of baryons and dark matter within the virial radius of a target galaxy. This allows us for example to better take into account gas evolution and associated star formation, to finely study the internal evolution of galaxies and their disks in a realistic cosmological context. We aim at obtaining a statistical view on galaxy evolution from z = 2 to 0, and we present here the first results of the study: we mainly stress the importance of taking into account gas accretion along filaments to understand galaxy evolution.Comment: 6 pages - Proceedings of IAU Symposium 254 "The Galaxy disk in cosmological context", Copenhagen, June 2008 - Movies available at http://aramis.obspm.fr/~bournaud/stargas35small.avi and http://aramis.obspm.fr/~bournaud/stargasZ35_small.av

    Tensor product and irregularity for holonomic D-modules

    Full text link
    Let M be a complex of D-modules with bounded holonomic cohomology on a complex manifold. In this note, we prove that if the derived tensor product of M with itself is regular, then M is regular.Comment: To appear at C. R. Acad. Sci. Pari

    Experimental Evidence on Inequity Aversion and Self-Selection between Incentive Contracts

    This paper reports on the results of an experiment testing whether the agents selfselect between a competitive payment scheme and a revenue-sharing scheme depending on their inequity aversion. Average efficiency should be increased when these payment schemes are endogenously chosen by agents. We show that the choice of the competition is negatively affected by disadvantageous inequity aversion and risk aversion. In the second half of the experiment, the effect of individual preferences is indirect through the effect of past results. The self-selection of agents increases the efficiency of the competitive scheme but not that of the revenue-sharing scheme, due to a heterogeneity of behaviors.performance pay ; incentives ; self-selection ; inequity aversion ; competition ; revenue-sharing scheme
