The standard model particles can be gauged in an anomaly free way by three possible gauge symmetries namely ${L_e-L_\mu}$, ${L_e-L_\tau}$, and ${L_\mu-L_\tau}$. Of these, ${L_e-L_\mu}$ and ${L_e-L_\tau}$ forces can mediate between the Sun and the planets and change the perihelion precession of planetary orbits. It is well known that a deviation from the $1/r^2$ Newtonian force can give rise to a perihelion advancement in the planetary orbit, for instance, as in the well known case of Einstein's… 

Viability of ultralight bosonic dark matter in dwarf galaxies

The dark matter distribution in dwarf galaxies holds a wealth of information on the fundamental properties and interactions of the dark matter particle. In this paper, we study whether ultralight

Dark photon bursts from compact binary systems and constraints

In this work, we consider the burst signal of the dark photon, the hypothetical vector boson of the U (1) B or U (1) B − L gauge group, generated by a compact binary star system. The absence of the

The evidence of gravitational wave was first indirectly confirmed by the orbital period loss of Hulse-Taylor binary system which agrees well with the Einstein’s general relativistic prediction. The

Gravitational radiation from binary systems in massive graviton theories

Theories with massive gravitons have peculiarity called the van Dam-Veltman-Zakharov discontinuity in that the massive theory propagator does not go to the massless graviton propagator in the zero

Constraints on ultralight axions, vector gauge bosons, and unparticles from geodetic and frame-dragging effects

The geodetic and frame-dragging effects are the direct consequences of the spacetime curvature near earth which can be probed from the Gravity probe B satellite. The satellite result matches quite



Inflation and long-range force from a clockwork D term

Cosmic inflation driven by the vacuum energy associated with the $D$ term of a supersymmetric Abelian gauge group and a possible existence of long-range force mediated by an ultralight gauge boson

Discovering leptonic forces using nonconserved currents

Differences in lepton number (i.e., $ L _e - L _\mu $, $ L _e - L _\tau $, $ L_\mu - L _\tau $, or combinations thereof) are not conserved charges in the Standard Model due to the observation of

Neutrino nonstandard interactions via light scalars in the Earth, Sun, supernovae, and the early Universe

Non-standard interactions (NSI) of neutrinos with matter mediated by a scalar field would induce medium-dependent neutrino masses which can modify oscillation probabilities. Generating observable

Constraints on fifth forces through perihelion precession of planets

The equivalence principle is important in fundamental physics. The fifth force, as a describing formalism of the equivalence principle, may indicate the property of an unknown theory. Dark matter is

Probing muonic forces with neutron star binaries

We show that gravitational wave emission from neutron star binaries can be used to discover any generic long-ranged muonic force due to the large inevitable abundance of muons inside neutron stars.

The orbital period of the binary neutron star systems decrease due to mainly quadrupole gravitational radiation which agrees with the observation to within one percent. Other types of radiation such

Ultra light particles $(m_a \sim 10^{-21}eV-10^{-22}eV)$ with axion-like couplings to other particles can be candidates for fuzzy dark matter (FDM) if the axion decay constant $f_a\sim 10^{17}GeV$.
