Alternative signature of TeV strings: Reduction in QCD jet production

  title={Alternative signature of TeV strings: Reduction in QCD jet production},
  author={Kin-ya Oda and Nobuchika Okada},
  journal={Physical Review D},
In string theory, it is well known that any hard scattering amplitude inevitably suffers exponential suppression. We demonstrate that, if the string scale is ${M}_{s}l2\mathrm{TeV},$ this intrinsically stringy behavior leads to a dramatic reduction in the QCD jet production rate with very high transverse momenta ${p}_{T}g~2\mathrm{TeV}$ at CERN LHC. This suppression is sufficient to be observed in the first year of low-luminosity running. Our prediction is based on the universal behavior of…

QCD effects in the decays of TeV black holes

In models with ``large'' and/or warped extra dimensions, the higher–dimensional Planck scale may be as low as a TeV. In that case black holes with masses of a few TeV are expected to be produced

Measuring the Spin of Invisible Massive Graviton Excitations at Future Linear Colliders

We consider the production process e−e+→Gγ of invisible gravitons (G) at future linear colliders. We discuss whether the angular distribution of the photon (γ) can be used to measure the spin of the

Geometric cross sections of rotating strings and black holes

We study the production cross section of a highly excited string with fixed angular momentum from an ultrahigh energy collision of two light strings. We find that the cross section exhibits geometric

Rotating black holes at future colliders: Greybody factors for brane fields

We study theoretical aspects of the rotating black hole production and evaporation in the extra dimension scenarios with TeV scale gravity, within the mass range in which the higher dimensional Kerr

TeV strings and collider probes of large extra dimensions

Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali have proposed that the fundamental gravitational scale is close to 1 TeV, and that the observed weakness of gravity at long distances is explained by the presence

TeV strings and the neutrino-nucleon cross section at ultrahigh energies.

It is shown that duality of the scattering amplitude forces the existence of a tower of massive leptoquarks that mediate the process in the s channel, and a sum rule for the production rate of resonances with different spin at each mass level is found.

String Theory Beyond the Planck Scale

Correspondence principle for black holes and strings

For most black holes in string theory, the Schwarzschild radius in string units decreases as the string coupling is reduced. We formulate a correspondence principle, which states that (i) when the

Black hole production in TeV-scale gravity, and the future of high energy physics

If the Planck scale is near a TeV, black hole production should be possible at colliders, as well as by cosmic rays. I begin with a review of the two approaches to TeV-scale gravity, large extra
