Dark Matter Candidates from Particle Physics and Methods of Detection
The identity of dark matter is a question of central importance in both astrophysics and particle physics. In the past, the leading particle candidates were cold and collisionless, and typicallyExpand

Rock burst process of limestone and its acoustic emission characteristics under true-triaxial unloading conditions
Abstract The rock failure process is associated with acoustic emission (AE). Hence, violent rock failure processes such as rock burst under different stress paths in laboratory can be studied usingExpand

Protophobic Fifth-Force Interpretation of the Observed Anomaly in ^{8}Be Nuclear Transitions.
Recently a 6.8σ anomaly has been reported in the opening angle and invariant mass distributions of e^{+}e^{-} pairs produced in ^{8}Be nuclear transitions. The data are explained by a 17 MeV vectorExpand

Superweakly interacting massive particles.
We investigate a new class of dark matter: superweakly interacting massive particles (super-WIMPs). As with conventional WIMPs, super-WIMPs appear in well motivated particle theories with naturallyExpand

Naturalness and the Status of Supersymmetry
For decades, the unnaturalness of the weak scale has been the dominant problem motivating new particle physics, and weak-scale supersymmetry has been the dominant proposed solution. This paradigm isExpand

Particle physics models for the 17 MeV anomaly in beryllium nuclear decays
The $6.8\ensuremath{\sigma}$ anomaly in excited $^{8}\mathrm{Be}$ nuclear decays via internal pair creation is fit well by a new particle interpretation. In a previous analysis, we showed that a 17Expand

ForwArd Search ExpeRiment at the LHC
New physics has traditionally been expected in the high-$p_T$ region at high-energy collider experiments. If new particles are light and weakly-coupled, however, this focus may be completelyExpand

Saltatory relaxation of the cosmological constant
Abstract We modify and extend an earlier proposal by Brown and Teitelboim to relax the effective cosmological term by nucleation of branes coupled to a three-index gauge potential. MicroscopicExpand
