    Model Independent Extra-dimension signatures with ATLAS

    Get PDF
    The generic missing transverse energy signals at LHC for theories having large extra dimensions are discussed. Final states of jets plus missing energy and photons plus missing energy are simulated in the ATLAS detector. The discovery limit of LHC and the methods to determine the parameters of the underlying model are discussed.Comment: 29 page

    High-Mass Supersymmetry with High Energy Hadron Colliders

    Full text link
    While it is natural for supersymmetric particles to be well within the mass range of the large hadron collider, it is possible that the sparticle masses could be very heavy. Signatures are examined at a very high energy hadron collider and an very high luminosity option for the Large Hadron Collider in such scenarios

    Study of stop and sbottom at LHC

    Full text link
    In supersymmetric models a gluino can decay into tbχ~1±tb\tilde{\chi}^{\pm}_1 through a stop or a sbottom. The decay chain produces an edge structure in the mtbm_{tb} distribution. Monte Carlo simulation studies show that the end point and the edge height would be measured at the CERN LHC by using a sideband subtraction technique. The stop and sbottom masses as well as their decay branching ratios are constrained by the measurement. We study interpretations of the measurement.Comment: 3 pages, 2 eps files, style files are included, talk at PASCOS'03, Mumbai, India, January 3-8, 200

    On Time-Space Noncommutativity for Transition Processes and Noncommutative Symmetries

    Full text link
    We explore the consequences of time-space noncommutativity in the quantum mechanics of atoms and molecules, focusing on the Moyal plane with just time-space noncommutativity ([x^μ,x^ν]=iθμν[\hat{x}_\mu ,\hat{x}_\nu]=i\theta_{\mu\nu}, \theta_{0i}\neqq 0, θij=0\theta_{ij}=0). Space rotations and parity are not automorphisms of this algebra and are not symmetries of quantum physics. Still, when there are spectral degeneracies of a time-independent Hamiltonian on a commutative space-time which are due to symmetries, they persist when \theta_{0i}\neqq 0; they do not depend at all on θ0i\theta_{0i}. They give no clue about rotation and parity violation when \theta_{0i}\neqq 0. The persistence of degeneracies for \theta_{0i}\neqq 0 can be understood in terms of invariance under deformed noncommutative ``rotations'' and ``parity''. They are not spatial rotations and reflection. We explain such deformed symmetries. We emphasize the significance of time-dependent perturbations (for example, due to time-dependent electromagnetic fields) to observe noncommutativity. The formalism for treating transition processes is illustrated by the example of nonrelativistic hydrogen atom interacting with quantized electromagnetic field. In the tree approximation, the 2s1s+γ2s\to 1s +\gamma transition for hydrogen is zero in the commutative case. As an example, we show that it is zero in the same approximation for θ0i0\theta_{0i}\ne 0. The importance of the deformed rotational symmetry is commented upon further using the decay Z02γZ^0 \to 2\gamma as an example.Comment: 13 pages, revised version, references adde

    Measurements in Gauge Mediated SUSY Breaking Models at LHC

    Get PDF
    Characteristic examples are presented of scenarios of particle production and decay in supersymmetry models in which the supersymmetry breaking is transmitted to the observable world via gauge interactions. The cases are chosen to illustrate the main classes of LHC phenomenology that can arise in these models. A new technique is illustrated that allows the full reconstruction of supersymmetry events despite the presence of two unobserved particles. This technique enables superparticle masses to be measured directly rather than being inferred from kinematic distributions. It is demonstrated that the LHC is capable of making sufficient measurements so as to severely over-constrain the model and determine the parameters with great precisionComment: 45 pages, 35 Figure

    Lepton Flavor Violation at the LHC

    Get PDF
    Recent results from Super Kamiokande suggest νμντ\nu_\mu-\nu_\tau mixing and hence lepton flavor violation. In supersymmetric models, this flavor violation may have implications for the pattern of slepton masses and mixings. Possible signals for this mixing in the decays of sleptons produced at the LHC are discussed. The sensitivity expected is compared to that of rare decays such as τμγ\tau\to \mu\gamma.Comment: 14 pages, 9 figure

    Measurements in SUGRA Models with Large tan beta at LHC

    Full text link
    We present an example of a scenario of particle production and decay in supersymmetry models in which the supersymmetry breaking is transmitted to the observable world via gravitational interactions. The case is chosen so that there is a large production of tau leptons in the final state. It is characteristic of large tan beta in that decays into muons and electrons may be suppressed. It is shown that hadronic tau decays can be used to reconstruct final states.Comment: 15 pages, 12 figure

    Universality in the Electroproduction of Vector Mesons

    Full text link
    We study universality in the electroproduction of vector mesons using a unified nonperturbative approach which has already proved to reproduce extremely well the available experimental data. In this framework, after the extraction of factors that are specific of each vector meson, we arrive at a reduced integrated elastic cross section which is universal. Our calculations suggest a finite infrared behavior for the strong coupling constant.Comment: 22 pages, 10 figure
