Tunneling potentials for the tunneling action: gauge invariance

Abstract We formulate a procedure to obtain a gauge-invariant tunneling rate at zero temperature using the recently developed tunneling potential approach. This procedure relies on a consistent

Domain walls seeding the electroweak phase transition

Topological defects can act as local impurities that seed cosmological phase transitions. In this paper we study the case of domain walls, and how they can affect the electroweak phase transition in

A Minimal Dark Matter Model for Muon g-2 with Scalar Lepton Partners up to the TeV Scale

The E989 experiment at the Fermi National Laboratory reported a 4.2σ discrepancy between the measured magnetic dipole moment of the muon, and its prediction in the Standard Model (SM). In this study,

Gravitational waves from first-order electroweak phase transition in a model with light sgoldstinos

Abstract We study previously unexplored possibility of triggering the first order electroweak phase transition (EWPT) by interactions of the Standard Model (SM) particles with the sector responsible

Model-independent energy budget for LISA

We provide an easy method to obtain the kinetic energy fraction in gravitational waves, generated during a cosmological first-order phase transition, as a function of only the wall velocity and

Detection of Early-Universe Gravitational Wave Signatures and Fundamental Physics

Detection of a gravitational-wave signal of non-astrophysical origin would be a landmark discovery, potentially providing a significant clue to some of our most basic, big-picture scientific questions

Gravitational waves in models with multicritical-point principle

The multicritical-point principle (MPP) provides a natural explanation of the large hierarchy between the Planck and electroweak scales. We consider a scenario in which MPP is applied to the Standard

Analytic thin wall false vacuum decay rate

We derive a closed-form false vacuum decay rate at one loop in the thin wall limit, where the true and false vacua are nearly degenerate. We obtain the bounce configuration in D dimensions, together

Computing the gauge-invariant bubble nucleation rate in finite temperature effective field theory

Abstract A gauge-invariant framework for computing bubble nucleation rates at finite temperature in the presence of radiative barriers was presented and advocated for model-building and

Generalized escape paths for dynamical tunneling in QFT

We present a formalism based on the functional Schrodinger equation to analyse time-dependent tunneling in quantum field theory at the semi-classical level. The full problem is reduced step by step

Motivated by the recent work of Chigusa, Moroi, and Shoji, we propose a new simple gradient flow equation to derive the bounce solution which contributes to the decay of the false vacuum. Our
