### Scalar Kaluza-Klein modes in a multiply warped braneworld

The Kaluza-Klein (KK) modes of a massive scalar field on a 3-brane embedded
in six dimensional multiply warped spacetime are determined. Due to the
presence of warping along both the extra dimensions the KK mass spectrum splits
into two closely spaced branches which is a distinct feature of this model
compared to the five dimensional Randall-Sundrum model. This new cluster of the
KK mode spectrum is expected to have interesting phenomenological implications
for the upcoming collider experiments. Such a scenario may also be extended for
even larger number of orbifolded extra dimensions.Comment: 10 pages, Revte

### Scalar kinks and fermion localisation in warped spacetimes

Scalar kinks propagating along the bulk in warped spacetimes provide a thick
brane realisation of the braneworld. We consider here, a class of such exact
solutions of the full Einstein-scalar system with a sine-Gordon potential and a
negative cosmological constant. In the background of the kink and the
corresponding warped geometry, we discuss the issue of localisation of spin
half fermions (with emphasis on massive ones) on the brane in the presence of
different types of kink-fermion Yukawa couplings. We analyse the possibility of
quasi-bound states for large values of the Yukawa coupling parameter $\gamma_F$
(with $\nu$, the warp factor parameter kept fixed) using appropriate, recently
developed, approximation methods. In particular, the spectrum of the low--lying
states and their lifetimes are obtained, with the latter being exponentially
enhanced for large $\nu \gamma_F$. Our results indicate quantitatively, within
this model, that it is possible to tune the nature of warping and the strength
and form of the Yukawa interaction to obtain trapped massive fermion states on
the brane, which, however, do have a finite (but very small) probability of
escaping into the bulk.Comment: 22 pages, 4 figures, RevTex

### Report of the GDR working group on the R-parity violation

This report summarizes the work of the "R-parity violation group" of the
French Research Network (GDR) in Supersymmetry, concerning the physics of
supersymmetric models without conservation of R-parity at HERA, LEP, Tevatron
and LHC and limits on R-parity violating couplings from various processes. The
report includes a discussion of the recent searches at the HERA experiment,
prospects for new experiments, a review of the existing limits, and also
theoretically motivated alternatives to R-parity and a brief discussion on the
implications of R-parity violation on the neutrino masses.Comment: 60 pages, LaTeX, 22 figures, 2 table

### Search for associated Higgs boson production using like charge dilepton events in p(p)over-bar collisions at root s=1.96 TeV

We present a search for associated Higgs boson production in the process p (p) over bar -> W/ZH -> l(+/-)l'(+/-) + X in ee, e mu, and mu mu final states. The search is based on data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at root s = 1.96 TeV corresponding to 5.3 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity. We require two isolated leptons (electrons or muons) with the same electric charge and additional kinematic requirements. No significant excess above background is observed, and we set 95% C. L. observed (expected) upper limits on ratio of the production cross section to the standard model prediction of 6.4 (7.3) for a Higgs boson mass of 165 GeV and 13.5 (19.8) for a mass of 115 GeV

### Matter-gravity interaction in a multiply warped braneworld,

The role of a bulk graviton in predicting the signature of extra dimensions
through collider-based experiments is explored in the context of a multiply
warped spacetime. In particular it is shown that in a doubly warped braneworld
model, the presence of the sixth dimension, results in enhanced concentration
of graviton Kaluza Klein (KK) modes compared to that obtained in the usual
5-dimensional Randall-Sundrum model. Also, the couplings of these massive
graviton KK modes with the matter fields on the visible brane turn out to be
appreciably larger than that in the corresponding 5- dimensional model. The
significance of these results are discussed in the context of KK graviton
search at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).Comment: 13 pages, 2 table

### Domain wall generation by fermion self-interaction and light particles

A possible explanation for the appearance of light fermions and Higgs bosons
on the four-dimensional domain wall is proposed. The mechanism of light
particle trapping is accounted for by a strong self-interaction of
five-dimensional pre-quarks. We obtain the low-energy effective action which
exhibits the invariance under the so called \tau-symmetry. Then we find a set
of vacuum solutions which break that symmetry and the five-dimensional
translational invariance. One type of those vacuum solutions gives rise to the
domain wall formation with consequent trapping of light massive fermions and
Higgs-like bosons as well as massless sterile scalars, the so-called branons.
The induced relations between low-energy couplings for Yukawa and scalar field
interactions allow to make certain predictions for light particle masses and
couplings themselves, which might provide a signature of the higher dimensional
origin of particle physics at future experiments. The manifest translational
symmetry breaking, eventually due to some gravitational and/or matter fields in
five dimensions, is effectively realized with the help of background scalar
defects. As a result the branons acquire masses, whereas the ratio of Higgs and
fermion (presumably top-quark) masses can be reduced towards the values
compatible with the present-day phenomenology. Since the branons do not couple
to fermions and the Higgs bosons do not decay into branons, the latter ones are
essentially sterile and stable, what makes them the natural candidates for the
dark matter in the Universe.Comment: 34 pages, 2 figures, JHEP style,few important refs. adde
