Heavy quark physics by Aneesh Vasant Manohar( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding the physics of heavy quarks gives physicists the opportunity to test the predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics and the Standard Model." "The book begins with a review of the standard model, followed by the basics of heavy quark spin-flavor symmetry and how it can be applied to the classification of states, decays and fragmentation. Heavy quark effective theory is then developed, including the radiative and 1/m[subscript Q] corrections, and applied to the study of hadron masses, form factors, and inclusive decay rates. The authors also discuss the application of chiral perturbation theory to heavy hadrons."

Brane models and the hierarchy problem by Walter D Goldberger( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has been recently proposed that higher-dimensional field theory models in the presence of extended defects ("branes") may play a role in addressing the gauge hierarchy problem. In this thesis we consider several aspects of such field theories. First we perform the Kaluza-Klein reduction of a bulk scalar field propagating in the scenario of Randall and Sundrum, which consists of a region of five-dimensional anti-deSitter space bounded by two three-branes. We then propose a simple mechanism, based on the dynamics of a bulk scalar field, for stabilizing the modulus field (the "radion") corresponding to the size of the compact dimension in the Randall-Sundrum scenario. Some implications of this stabilization mechanism for low-energy phenomenology are described. Next, we investigate the one-loop quantum corrections to the radion effective potential. We show that for large brane separation, the quantum effects are power suppressed and therefore have a negligible effect on the bulk dynamics once a classical stabilization mechanism is in place. Finally, we study the ultraviolet divergence structure of field theory in the presence of branes and find that brane-localized divergences arise both at the classical and quantum level. We show how to interpret the classical divergences by the usual regularization and renormalization procedure of quantum field theory."

Baryon number violation beyond the standard model by Bartosz Fornal( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis describes simple extensions of the standard model with new sources of baryon number violation but no proton decay. The motivation for constructing such theories comes from the shortcomings of the standard model to explain the generation of baryon asymmetry in the universe, and from the absence of experimental evidence for proton decay. However, lack of any direct evidence for baryon number violation in general puts strong bounds on the naturalness of some of those models and favors theories with suppressed baryon number violation below the TeV scale. The initial part of the thesis concentrates on investigating models containing new scalars responsible for baryon number breaking. A model with new color sextet scalars is analyzed in more detail. Apart from generating cosmological baryon number, it gives nontrivial predictions for the neutron-antineutron oscillations, the electric dipole moment of the neutron, and neutral meson mixing. The second model discussed in the thesis contains a new scalar leptoquark. Although this model predicts mainly lepton flavor violation and a nonzero electric dipole moment of the electron, it includes, in its original form, baryon number violating nonrenormalizable dimension-five operators triggering proton decay. Imposing an appropriate discrete symmetry forbids such operators. Finally, a supersymmetric model with gauged baryon and lepton numbers is proposed. It provides a natural explanation for proton stability and predicts lepton number violating processes below the supersymmetry breaking scale, which can be tested at the Large Hadron Collider. The dark matter candidate in this model carries baryon number and can be searched for in direct detection experiments as well. The thesis is completed by constructing and briefly discussing a minimal extension of the standard model with gauged baryon, lepton, and flavor symmetries
Baryon and lepton numbers in particle physics beyond the standard model by Jonathan Mark Arnold( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works presented in this thesis explore a variety of extensions of the standard model of particle physics which are motivated by baryon number (B) and lepton number (L), or some combination thereof. In the standard model, both baryon number and lepton number are accidental global symmetries violated only by non-perturbative weak effects, though the combination B-L is exactly conserved. Although there is currently no evidence for considering these symmetries as fundamental, there are strong phenomenological bounds restricting the existence of new physics violating B or L. In particular, there are strict limits on the lifetime of the proton whose decay would violate baryon number by one unit and lepton number by an odd number of units. The first paper included in this thesis explores some of the simplest possible extensions of the standard model in which baryon number is violated, but the proton does not decay as a result. The second paper extends this analysis to explore models in which baryon number is conserved, but lepton flavor violation is present. Special attention is given to the processes of [Mu] to e conversion and [Mu] → e[Gamma] which are bound by existing experimental limits and relevant to future experiments. The final two papers explore extensions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) in which both baryon number and lepton number, or the combination B-L, are elevated to the status of being spontaneously broken local symmetries. These models have a rich phenomenology including new collider signatures, stable dark matter candidates, and alternatives to the discrete R-parity symmetry usually built into the MSSM in order to protect against baryon and lepton number violating processes

Flavor SU(3) predictions for charmed baryon and B-meson decays by Martin J Savage( )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The predictions of the SU(3) flavor symmetry of the strong interactions for the weak decay of charmed baryons and B-mesons are detailed. It is hoped that comparison between these predictions and experiment will shed some light on the underlying dynamics involved in these weak decays. Although only a few decay modes of the charmed baryons and B-mesons have been studied experimentally it is hoped that the next generation of B-factories and even Z-decays at LEP will provide enough events to test these predictions
