Brane worlds at the LHC: branons and KK gravitons

  title={Brane worlds at the LHC: branons and KK gravitons},
  author={Jos{\'e} Alberto Ruiz Cembranos and Rafael L. Delgado and Antonio Dobado},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We explore the viscosities of a photon gas by means of the Euler-Heisenberg effective theory and quantum electrodynamics at zero electron chemical potential. We find parametric estimates that show a very large shear viscosity and an extremely small bulk viscosity (reflecting the very weak coupling simultaneously with a very approximate dilatation invariance). The system is of some interest because it exemplifies very neatly the influence of the breaking of scale invariance on the bulk viscosity…

Disformal scalars as dark matter candidates: Branon phenomenology
Scalar particles coupled to the Standard Model fields through a disformal coupling arise in different theories, such as massive gravity or braneworld models. We will review the main phenomenology
Nonminimal scalar-tensor theories
We compute the spectrum of scalar models with a general coupling to the scalar curvature. We find that the perturbative states of these theories are given by two massive spin-0 modes in addition to
Relaxing the W ′ Constraint on Compact Extradimension
In this paper, we study the constraint on brane tension and compactification scale for models with brane fluctuations using the results from the direct search of W ′ at 13 TeV LHC, with an integrated
Probing the braneworld hypothesis with a neutron-shining-through-a-wall experiment
The possibility for our visible world to be a 3-brane embedded in a multidimensional bulk is at the heart of many theoretical edifices in high-energy physics. Probing the braneworld hypothesis is
Magnetic dipole moments for composite dark matter
We study neutral dark matter candidates with a nonzero magnetic dipole moment. We assume that they are composite states of new fermions related to the strong phase of a new gauge interaction. In

The center of our Galaxy is a complex region characterized by extreme phenomena. The presence of the supermassive Sagittarius A* black hole, a high Dark Matter density and an even higher baryonic
On scalar and vector fields coupled to the energy-momentum tensor
A bstractWe consider theories for scalar and vector fields coupled to the energy-momentum tensor. Since these fields also carry a non-trivial energy-momentum tensor, the coupling prescription
Backreaction mechanism in multifluid and extended cosmologies
One possible explanation for the present observed acceleration of the Universe is the breakdown of homogeneity and isotropy due to the formation of non-linear structures. How inhomogeneities affect


Thermodynamics and cosmological constant of non-local field theories from p-adic strings
We develop the thermodynamics of field theories characterized by non-local propagators. We analyze the partition function and main thermodynamic properties arising from perturbative thermal loops. We
Dark matter from R2 gravity.
This work points out that this modification of Einstein gravity at high energies necessarily introduces new degrees of freedom and analyzes the possibility that these new gravitational states can provide the main contribution to the nonbaryonic dark matter of the Universe.
The Newtonian limit at intermediate energies
We study the metric solutions for the gravitational equations in Modified Gravity Models (MGMs). In models with negative powers of the scalar curvature, we show that the Newtonian Limit (NL) is well
In the context of f(R) modified gravity theories, we study the Kerr-Newman black hole solutions. We study nonzero constant scalar curvature solutions and discuss the metric tensor that satisfies the
Isotropy theorem for cosmological Yang-Mills theories
We consider homogeneous non-Abelian vector fields with general potential terms in an expanding universe. We find a mechanical analogy with a system of N interacting particles (with N the dimension of
Thermal duality and Hagedorn transition from p-adic strings.
We develop the finite temperature theory of p-adic string models. We find that the thermal properties of these nonlocal field theories can be interpreted either as contributions of standard thermal
Isotropy theorem for cosmological vector fields
We consider homogeneous Abelian vector fields in an expanding universe. We find a mechanical analogy in which the system behaves as a particle moving in three dimensions under the action of a central

CPT analysis with top physics
We discuss the possibility of observing CPT violation from top anti-top production in hadronic colliders. We study a general approach by analyzing constraints on the mass difference between the top
