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. These
A facility to search for hidden particles at the CERN SPS: the SHiP physics case.
It is demonstrated that the SHiP experiment has a unique potential to discover new physics and can directly probe a number of solutions of beyond the standard model puzzles, such as neutrino masses, baryon asymmetry of the Universe, dark matter, and inflation.
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 of
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. Dark
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 existing
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, including
Long-Lived Particles at the Energy Frontier: The MATHUSLA Physics Case.
A model-independent approach is developed to describe the sensitivity of MATHUSLA to BSM LLP signals, and a general discussion of the top-down and bottom-up motivations for LLP searches are synthesized to demonstrate the exceptional strength and breadth of the physics case for the construction of the MATH USLA detector.
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 and
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, the
