    Leptoquark Contribution to the Higgs Boson Production at the LHC Collider

    In this report we study how a light-scalar leptoquark could affect the Higgs boson production cross-section at the LHC collider. We construct the most general renormalizable and gauge invariant effective Lagrangian involving the standard model particles and a scalar, isoscalar leptoquark, \eta. The total cross-section for pp -> H+X is then calculated for different values of the unknown parameters \lambda_eta, m_eta and m_H.(Here \lambda_eta is the coupling associated with the Higgs-leptoquark interaction.) We find that if \lambda_eta is moderately large and m_eta is around a few hundred GeV, then the cross-section is significantly larger than the standard model value.Comment: 9 pages, 4 postscript figure

    Limits on excited tau leptons masses from leptonic tau decays

    Full text link
    We study the effects induced by excited leptons on the leptonic tau decay at one loop level. Using a general effective lagrangian approach to describe the couplings of the excited leptons, we compute their contributions to the leptonic decays and use the current experimental values of the branching ratios to put limits on the mass of excited states and the substructure scale.Comment: 10 pages, 6 figures, to be published in Phys.

    Production of Doubly Charged Higgs Bosons at Linear e-e- Colliders

    Get PDF
    Production of doubly charged Higgs bosons via the s-channel process e-e- -> H-- -> l-l- at future linear collider energies is studied by taking into account initial state radiation (ISR) and beamstrahlung (ISR + BS), final state radiation (FSR) and detector smearing effects. The discovery bounds of lepton flavour conserving and violating couplings are obtained for doubly charged Higgs bosons. It is found that future linear colliders with centre of mass energies and will be able to probe the doubly charged Higgs bosons with diagonal couplings down to 10^-4 and 10^-3, respectively.Comment: 22 pages, 12 figures, 4 table

    Non-thermal Leptogenesis and a Prediction of Inflaton Mass in a Supersymmetric SO(10) Model

    Full text link
    The gravitino problem gives a severe constraint on the thermal leptogenesis scenario. This problem leads us to consider some alternatives to it if we try to keep the gravitino mass around the weak scale m3/2∼100m_{3/2} \sim 100 GeV. We consider, in this paper, the non-thermal leptogenesis scenario in the framework of a minimal supersymmetric SO(10) model. Even if we start with the same minimal SO(10) model, we have different predictions for low-energy phenomenologies dependent on the types of seesaw mechanism. This is the case for leptogenesis: it is shown that the type-I see-saw model gives a consistent scenario for the non-thermal leptogenesis but not for type-II. The predicted inflaton mass needed to produce the observed baryon asymmetry of the universe is found to be MI∼5×1011M_I \sim 5 \times 10^{11} GeV for the reheating temperature TR=106T_R = 10^6 GeV.Comment: 9 pages, 2 figures; the version to appear in JCA
