High-precision muon decay predictions for ALP searches

  title={High-precision muon decay predictions for ALP searches},
  author={Prabir Banerjee and Ant{\'o}nio M. Coutinho and T. Engel and Andrea Gurgone and A. Signer and Yannick Ulrich},
We present an improved theoretical prediction of the positron energy spectrum for the polarised Michel decay µ + → e + ν e ¯ ν µ . In addition to the full next-to-next-to-leading order correction of order α 2 in the electromagnetic coupling, we include logarithmically enhanced terms at even higher orders. Logarithms due to collinear emission are included at next-to-leading accuracy up to order α 4 . At the endpoint of the Michel spectrum, soft photon emission results in large logarithms that…

Looking forward to lepton-flavor-violating ALPs

We assess the status of past and future experiments on lepton flavor violating (LFV) muon and tau decays into a light, invisible, axion-like particle (ALP), a. We propose a new experimental setup for

A bstractThe Standard Model prediction for μ-e scattering at Next-to-Next-to-Leading Order (NNLO) contains non-perturbative QCD contributions given by diagrams with a hadronic vacuum polarization

Hunting for ALPs with lepton flavor violation

We examine the low-energy signatures of axion-like particles (ALPs) in lep- ton flavor violating (LFV) processes. By using a dimension-5 effective Lagrangian, we compute the most general ALP

Probing charged lepton flavor violation with axion-like particles at Belle II

We study charged lepton flavor violation associated with a light leptophilic axion-like particle (ALP), X, at the B-factory experiment Belle II. We focus on production of the ALP in the tau decays τ

Collider probes of axion-like particles

A bstractAxion-like particles (ALPs), which are gauge-singlets under the Standard Model (SM), appear in many well-motivated extensions of the SM. Describing the interactions of ALPs with SM fields by

Leading logarithmic calculations of QED corrections at LEP

We present the leading logarithmic third order, O(β 3 ), corrections to the electron structure functions in QED. For the non singlet component we present exact Monte Carlo algorithm and compare
