From physical concept to mathematical structure : an introduction to theoretical physics by
Lynn E. H Trainor(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1978 and 2019 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<P>The text takes an innovative approach to theoretical physics. It surveys the field in a way that emphasizes perspective rather than content per se, and identifies certain common threads, both conceptual and methodological, which run through the fabric of the subject today.</P>

Heavy Quark Physics(
)
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Understanding the physics of heavy quarks gives physicists the unique opportunity to test the predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics and the Standard Model. First published in 2000, this introductory text on this exciting area of highenergy physics begins with a review of the standard model, followed by the basics of heavy quark spinflavor symmetry and how it can be applied to the classification of states, decays and fragmentation. Heavy quark effective theory is then developed 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. Written by two world leading experts, the presentation is clear and original, with problems provided at the end of each chapter. This lucid volume provides graduate students with an ideal introduction to the physics of heavy quarks, and more experienced researchers with an authoritative reference to the subject

Brane models and the hierarchy problem by

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 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."

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 1 WorldCat member library 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 nonperturbative weak effects, though the combination BL 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 BL, 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 Rparity symmetry usually built into the MSSM in order to protect against baryon and lepton number violating processes
