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 higherdimensional 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 KaluzaKlein reduction of a bulk scalar field propagating in the scenario of Randall and Sundrum, which consists of a region of fivedimensional antideSitter space bounded by two threebranes. 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 RandallSundrum scenario. Some implications of this stabilization mechanism for lowenergy phenomenology are described. Next, we investigate the oneloop 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 branelocalized 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."

Flavor SU(3) predictions for charmed baryon and Bmeson 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 Bmesons 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 Bmesons have been studied experimentally it is hoped that the next generation of Bfactories and even Zdecays at LEP will provide enough events to test these predictions

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 neutronantineutron 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 dimensionfive 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

The LeeWick standard model
by
Mark B Wise(
)
1 edition published in 2010 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This article reviews some recent work on a version of the standard model (the LeeWick standard model) that contains higher derivative kinetic terms that improve the convergence of loop diagrams removing the quadratic divergence in the Higgs boson mass. Naively higher derivative theories of this type are not acceptable since the higher derivative terms either cause instabilities (from negative energies) or a loss of unitarity (from negative norm states). Lee and Wick provided an interpretation for such theories arguing that theories with higher derivative kinetic terms can be unitary and stable if the states associated with the massive propagator poles, that arise from the higher derivatives, have widths and hence decay and are not in the spectrum of the theory
