Handbook of LHC Higgs cross sections: 4. Deciphering the nature of the Higgs sector
This Report summarizes the results of the activities of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group in the period 2014-2016. The main goal of the working group was to present the state-of-the-art ofExpand
Photon spectra from WIMP annihilation
If the present dark matter in the Universe annihilates into standard model particles, it must contribute to the fluxes of cosmic rays that are detected on the Earth and, in particular, to theExpand
Inverse amplitude method in chiral perturbation theory
Based on a dispersive approach, we apply the inverse amplitude method to unitarize one-loop SU(2) and SU(3) chiral perturbation theory. Numerically, we find that this unitarization technique yieldsExpand
Electroweak Physics
The status of precision electroweak measurements as of summer 2002 is reviewed. The recent results on the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and on neutrino-nucleon scattering are discussed.Expand
Evolution of density perturbations in f(R) theories of gravity
In the context of f(R) theories of gravity, we study the evolution of scalar cosmological perturbations in the metric formalism. Using a completely general procedure, we find the exact fourth-orderExpand
Unitarized chiral perturbation theory for elastic pion-pion scattering
Abstract The low-energy two-pion elastic scattering is calculated within the framework of the one-loop chiral perturbation theory in combination with the Pade approximant method for the partial waveExpand
Effective Lagrangians for the Standard Model
The notion of effective lagrangian global symmetries in quantum field theory the non-linear model anomalies the symmetries of the standard model the effective lagrangian for QCD the standard modelExpand
Brane-world dark matter.
We show that, in the context of brane-world scenarios with low tension tau=f(4), massive brane fluctuations (branons) are natural dark matter candidates. We calculate the present abundances for bothExpand
Shear viscosity in a CFL quark star
We compute the mean free path and shear viscosity in the color-flavor locked (CFL) phase of dense quark matter at low temperature T, when the contributions of mesons, quarks and gluons to theExpand
Black Holes in f(R) theories
In the context of f(R) theories of gravity, we address the problem of finding static and spherically symmetric black hole solutions. Several aspects of constant curvature solutions with and withoutExpand
