The Physics Programme Of The MoEDAL Experiment At The LHC
The MoEDAL experiment at Point 8 of the LHC ring is the seventh and newest LHC experiment. It is dedicated to the search for highly-ionizing particle avatars of physics beyond the Standard Model,Expand
Spacetime curvature and the Higgs stability during inflation.
The standard model Higgs effective potential is computed including UV-induced curvature corrections at one-loop level and it is found that for a high inflationary scale a large curvature mass is generated due to renormalization group running of nonminimal coupling ξ. Expand
Thermal Schwinger pair production at arbitrary coupling
We calculate the rate of thermal Schwinger pair production at arbitrary coupling in weak external fields. Our calculations are valid independently of many properties of the charged particlesExpand
The end of locked inflation
We investigate the end of the inflationary period in the recently proposed scenario of locked inflation, and consider various constraints arising from density perturbations, loop corrections,Expand
Search for magnetic monopoles with the MoEDAL forward trapping detector in 2.11 fb -1 of 13 TeV proton-proton collisions at the LHC
Abstract We update our previous search for trapped magnetic monopoles in LHC Run 2 using nearly six times more integrated luminosity and including additional models for the interpretation of theExpand
Non-Gaussianity from resonant curvaton decay
We calculate curvature perturbations in the scenario in which the curvaton field decays into another scalar field via parametric resonance. As a result of a nonlinear stage at the end of theExpand
Prospects for Fundamental Physics with LISA
In this paper, which is of programmatic rather than quantitative nature, we aim to further delineate and sharpen the future potential of the LISA mission in the area of fundamental physics. Given theExpand
On the anisotropy of the gravitational wave background from massless preheating
When a light scalar field is present during inflation, its value varies on superhorizon scales, modulating the preheating process at the end of inflation. Consequently, the amplitude of theExpand
Anisotropies in the gravitational wave background from preheating.
If future direct detection GW experiments are capable of detecting the GW produced by preheating, they should also be able to detect this effect, which could eventually provide a powerful way to distinguish between different inflationary and pre heating scenarios. Expand
Lattice calculation of non-Gaussianity from preheating
If light scalar fields are present at the end of inflation, their non-equilibrium dynamics such as parametric resonance or a phase transition can produce non-Gaussian density perturbations. We showExpand
