Motivated by the seesaw mechanism for neutrinos which naturally generates small neutrino masses, we explore how a small grand-unified-theory-scale mixing between the standard model Higgs boson and an otherwise massless hidden sector scalar can naturally generate a small mass and vacuum expectation value for the new scalar which produces a false vacuum energy density contribution comparable to that of the observed dark energy dominating the current expansion of the Universe. This provides a…

Metastability of the false vacuum in a Higgs-seesaw model of dark energy
In a recently proposed Higgs-Seesaw model the observed scale of dark energy results from a metastable false vacuum energy associated with mixing of the standard model Higgs particle and a scalar
A new scheme for neutrino mass generation and relevant new physics
We propose a new scheme for neutrino mass generation through a modification of the standard Higgs mechanism implemented by introducing an unconventional tiny vacuum breaking to the charged Higgs
Phenomenology for the Large Hadron Collider
The search for physics Beyond the Standard Model is the underlying motivation for the physics programme of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In this thesis we will present studies into the Large
Cosmological dynamics of gravitating hadron matter
Anisotropic cosmologies are studied in the case where the matter source is given by the Skyrme model which is an effective description of low energy QCD. The dynamical evolution of the
Renyi Holographic Dark Energy models in Teleparallel gravity
In this paper, we have investigated the physical behaviour of cosmological models in the framework of modified Teleparallel gravity. This model is established using a Renyi holographic “dark energy
Cosmic acceleration from a single fluid description
We here propose a new class of barotropic factor for matter, motivated by properties of isotropic deformations of crystalline solids. Our approach is dubbed Anton-Schmidt's equation of state and
Model-independent reconstruction of f(T) teleparallel cosmology
We propose a model-independent formalism to numerically solve the modified Friedmann equations in the framework of f(T) teleparallel cosmology. Our strategy is to expand the Hubble parameter around


Quarks and Leptons
Abstract We review the physics of quarks and leptons within the framework of gauge theories for the weak and electromagnetic interactions. The Weinberg-Salam SU(2) × U(1) theory is used as a
