Nongeometric flux compactifications
We investigate a simple class of type-II string compactifications which incorporate nongeometric ``fluxes'' in addition to ``geometric flux'' and the usual H-field and R-R fluxes. TheseExpand
A facility to search for hidden particles at the CERN SPS: the SHiP physics case.
This paper describes the physics case for a new fixed target facility at CERN SPS. The SHiP (search for hidden particles) experiment is intended to hunt for new physics in the largely unexploredExpand
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
Generalized flux vacua
We consider type II string theory compactified on a symmetric T6/2 orientifold. We study a general class of discrete deformations of the resulting four-dimensional supergravity theory, includingExpand
Illuminating dark photons with high-energy colliders
A bstractHigh-energy colliders offer a unique sensitivity to dark photons, the mediators of a broken dark U(1) gauge theory that kinetically mixes with the Standard Model (SM) hypercharge. DarkExpand
Long-Lived Particles at the Energy Frontier: The MATHUSLA Physics Case.
We examine the theoretical motivations for long-lived particle (LLP) signals at the LHC in a comprehensive survey of Standard Model (SM) extensions. LLPs are a common prediction of a wide range ofExpand
Exotic decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson
We perform an extensive survey of nonstandard Higgs decays that are consistent with the 125 GeV Higgs-like resonance. Our aim is to motivate a large set of new experimental analyses on the existingExpand
Simplified Models for LHC New Physics Searches
This document proposes a collection of simplified models relevant to the design of new-physics searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the characterization of their results. Both ATLAS andExpand
Dark Sectors 2016 Workshop: Community Report
This report, based on the Dark Sectors workshop at SLAC in April 2016, summarizes the scientific importance of searches for dark sector dark matter and forces at masses beneath the weak-scale, theExpand
