The LHCb detector at the LHC
The LHCb experiment is dedicated to precision measurements of CP violation and rare decays of B hadrons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (Geneva). The initial configuration and expected… Expand
Determination of jet energy calibration and transverse momentum resolution in CMS
Measurements of the jet energy calibration and transverse momentum resolution in CMS are presented, performed with a data sample collected in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of… Expand
Strings on orbifolds
String propagation on the quotient of a flat torus by a discrete group is considered. We obtain an exactly soluble and more or less realistic method of string compactification.
Algebras, BPS states, and strings
Abstract We clarify the role played by BPS states in the calculation of threshold corrections of D = 4, N = 2 heterotic string compactifications. We evaluate these corrections for some classes of… Expand
The M2-M5 brane system and a generalized Nahm's equation
Abstract We propose an equation that describes M2-branes ending on M5-branes, and which generalizes the description of the D1–D3 system via Nahm's equation. The simplest solution to this equation… Expand
Electroweak measurements in electron positron collisions at W-boson-pair energies at LEP
Electroweak measurements performed with data taken at the electron-positron collider LEP at CERN from 1995 to 2000 are reported. The combined data set considered in this report corresponds to a total… Expand
Observation of a new boson at a mass of 125 GeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC
Results are presented from searches for the standard model Higgs boson in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s)=7 and 8 TeV in the CMS experiment at the LHC, using data samples corresponding to… Expand
I-brane inflow and anomalous couplings on D-branes
We show that the anomalous couplings of D-brane gauge and gravitational fields to Ramond - Ramond tensor potentials can be deduced by a simple anomaly inflow argument applied to intersecting D-branes… Expand
Instantons and (super-) symmetry breaking in (2+1) dimensions
Abstract The connection between instantons and the breaking of supersymmetry and ordinary symmetries is studied in a variety of (2+1)-dimensional gauge theories.
Second quantized mirror symmetry
We propose and give strong evidence for a duality relating Type II theories on CalabiYau spaces and heterotic strings on K3× T 2 , both of which have N = 2 spacetime supersymmetry. Entries in the… Expand
