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

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

Oddballs and a Low Odderon Intercept
The authors report an odderon Regge trajectory emerging from a field theoretical Coulomb gauge QCD model for the odd signature J{sup PC} (P = C = -1) glueball states (oddballs). The trajectoryExpand

QCD and strongly coupled gauge theories: challenges and perspectives
We highlight the progress, current status, and open challenges of QCD-driven physics, in theory and in experiment. We discuss how the strong interaction is intimately connected to a broad sweep ofExpand

The quark–gluon vertex in Landau gauge QCD: Its role in dynamical chiral symmetry breaking and quark confinement
The infrared behavior of the quark–gluon vertex of quenched Landau gauge QCD is studied by analyzing its Dyson Schwinger equation. Building on previously obtained results for Green functions in theExpand

On neutron stars in $f(R)$ theories: Small radii, large masses and large energy emitted in a merger
Abstract In the context of f ( R ) gravity theories, we show that the apparent mass of a neutron star as seen from an observer at infinity is numerically calculable but requires careful matching,Expand

Thermal rho and sigma mesons from chiral symmetry and unitarity
We study the temperature evolution of the rho and sigma mass and width, using a unitary chiral approach. The one-loop pipi scattering amplitude in chiral perturbation theory at Tnot equal0 isExpand

Dynamically Induced Scalar Quark Confinement
We employ a functional approach to investigate the confinement problem in quenched Landau gauge QCD. We demonstrate analytically that a linear rising potential between massive quarks is generated byExpand

Coulomb gauge approach to qq̄g hybrid mesons
An effective Coulomb gauge Hamiltonian, Heff, is used to calculate the light (uūg), strange (ss̄g) and charmed (cc̄g) hybrid meson spectra. For the same two parameter Heff providing glueball massesExpand

Two infrared Yang-Mills solutions in stochastic quantization and in an effective action formalism
Three decades of work on the quantum field equations of pure Yang-Mills theory have distilled two families of solutions in Landau gauge. Both coincide for hig (Euclidean) momentum with knownExpand
