Memory effects of gravitational waves from astronomical events or primordial universe might have the information of new physics. It is intriguing to observe that the memory effect exists in electrodynamics as a net momentum kick, while the memory effect in gravity appears as a net relatively displacement. In particular, Winicour has shown that the B-mode memory, which characterizes parity odd global distribution of memory, does not exist. We study the memory effect in axion electrodynamics and…

Memory effect in Yang-Mills theory with an axion

We study the empirical realization of the memory effect in Yang-Mills theory with an axion-like particle, especially in view of the classical vs. quantum nature of the theory. We solve for the

Exploring String Axions with Gravitational Waves

We explore the string axion dark matter with gravitational waves in Chern–Simons gravity. We show that the parametric resonance of gravitational waves occurs due to the axion coherent oscillation.

Exploring the string axiverse and parity violation in gravity with gravitational waves

We show that the parametric resonance of gravitational waves (GWs) occurs due to the axion coherent oscillation and the circular polarization of GWs is induced by the Chern–Simons coupling. However,

Asymptotic symmetries and Weinberg’s soft photon theorem in Minkd+2

Abstract We show that Weinberg’s leading soft photon theorem in massless abelian gauge theories implies the existence of an infinite-dimensional large gauge symmetry which acts non-trivially on

Electromagnetic waves propagating in the string axiverse

It is widely believed that axions are ubiquitous in string theory and could be the dark matter. The peculiar features of the axion dark matter are coherent oscillations and a coupling to the
