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,
Symmetries and conservation laws in non-Hermitian field theories
Anti-Hermitian mass terms are considered, in addition to Hermitian ones, for PT-symmetric complex-scalar and fermionic field theories. In both cases, the Lagrangian can be written in a manifestly
Lifshitz-type Quantum Field Theories in Particle Physics
This introduction to Lifshitz-type field theories reviews some of its aspects in Particle Physics. Attractive features of these models are described with different examples, as the improvement of
Vacuum polarization in thermal QED with an external magnetic field
The one-loop vacuum polarization tensor is computed in QED with an external constant, homogeneous magnetic field at finite temperature. The Schwinger proper-time formalism is used and the
Spontaneous symmetry breaking and the Goldstone theorem in non-Hermitian field theories
We demonstrate the extension to parity-time (PT)-symmetric field theories of the Goldstone theorem, confirming that the spontaneous appearance of a field vacuum expectation value via minimization of
Magnetic Monopole Search with the Full MoEDAL Trapping Detector in 13 TeV pp Collisions Interpreted in Photon-Fusion and Drell-Yan Production.
This search for magnetic monopoles in Run 2 using the full trapping detector with almost four times more material and almost twice more integrated luminosity provides the best current laboratory constraints for monopoles with magnetic charges ranging from two to five times the Dirac charge.
Gauge invariance and the Englert-Brout-Higgs mechanism in non-Hermitian field theories
We discuss $\mathcal{P}\mathcal{T}$-symmetric Abelian gauge field theories as well as their extension to the Englert-Brout-Higgs mechanism for generating a mass for a vector boson. Gauge invariance
Non-Hermitian extension of gauge theories and implications for neutrino physics
A bstractAn extension of QED is considered in which the Dirac fermion has both Hermitian and anti-Hermitian mass terms, as well as both vector and axial-vector couplings to the gauge field. Gauge
Black hole interference patterns in flavor oscillations
Motivated by neutrino astronomy, we consider a plane wave of coupled and massive flavours, scattered by a static black hole, and describe analytically and numerically the corresponding oscillation
