US Cosmic Visions: New Ideas in Dark Matter 2017: Community Report
This white paper summarizes the workshop "U.S. Cosmic Visions: New Ideas in Dark Matter" held at University of Maryland on March 23-25, 2017.
Model independent determination of the axial mass parameter in quasielastic neutrino-nucleon scattering
Quasielastic neutrino-nucleon scattering is a basic signal process for neutrino oscillation studies. At accelerator energies, the corresponding cross section is subject to significant uncertainty due
Extraction of the proton radius from electron-proton scattering data
We perform a new analysis of electron-proton scattering data to determine the proton electric and magnetic radii, enforcing model-independent constraints from form factor analyticity. A wideranging
Factorization and Sudakov resummation in leptonic radiative B decay
Soft-collinear effective theory is used to prove factorization of the $\stackrel{\ensuremath{\rightarrow}}{B}\ensuremath{\gamma}l\ensuremath{\nu}$ decay amplitude at leading power in
Low energy analysis of ?N??N? in the standard model
The production of single photons in low energy (~1 GeV) neutrino scattering off nucleons is analyzed in the Standard Model. At very low energies, E(nu) nu(e) is discussed. In particular, single
Topological Physics of Little Higgs Bosons
Topological interactions will generally occur in composite Higgs or Little Higgs theories, extra-dimensional gauge theories in which A5 plays the role of a Higgs boson, and among the pNGB's of
Standard Model anatomy of WIMP dark matter direct detection II: QCD analysis and hadronic matrix elements
Models of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) specified at the electroweak scale are systematically matched to effective theories at hadronic scales where WIMP-nucleus scattering observables
Lorentz invariance in heavy particle effective theories
Employing induced representations of the Lorentz group (Wigner's little group construction), formalism for constructing heavy particle effective Lagrangians is developed, and Lagrangian constraints
Anomaly mediated neutrino-photon interactions at finite baryon density.
New physical processes based on the axial vector anomaly and described by the Wess-Zumino-Witten term that couples the photon, Z-boson, and the omega-meson are proposed that induce neutrino-photon interactions at finite baryon density.
