We show that the LHC will be able to differentiate between a four-dimensional model with quantum gravity at ~1 TeV where the (massless) graviton becomes strongly coupled to standard model particles at 1 TeV and brane world type models with a large extra-dimensional volume and massive Kaluza-Klein gravitons. We estimate that the 14 TeV LHC could put a limit of the order of ~5 TeV on the four dimensional Planck mass in a model independent way. Comment: 9 pages

A Review of Quantum Gravity at the Large Hadron Collider
The aim of this paper is to review the recent developments in the phenomenology of quantum gravity at the Large Hadron Collider. We shall pay special attention to four-dimensional models which areExpand
Quantum gravity at the LHC
We study the production of massless gravitons at the LHC and compare our results to those obtained in extra-dimensional models. The signature in both cases is missing energy plus jets. In case ofExpand
Simulating graviton production at hadron colliders
Spin-2 particles and in particular gravitons are predicted in many new physics scenarios at the TeV scale. Depending on the details of models such new states might show up as a continuum, masslessExpand
Unitarity bounds on low scale quantum gravity
We study the unitarity of models with low scale quantum gravity both in four dimensions and in models with a large extra-dimensional volume. We find that models with low scale quantum gravity haveExpand
On the unitarity of linearized General Relativity coupled to matter
We consider the unitarity of the S-matrix for linearized General Relativity coupled to particle physics models. Taking renormalization group effects of the Planck mass into account, we find that theExpand
Astrophysical evidence for an extra dimension: phenomenology of a Kaluza Klein theory
In this brief review we discuss the viability of a multidimensional geometrical theory with one compactified dimension. We discuss the case of a Kaluza Klein fifth dimensional theory, addressing theExpand
Phenomenology of Graviton Production
In exact sciences, the word “phenomenology” is employed to relate empirical observations of phenomena with theories that attempt to describe it. Comparison between theory and experiment is achievedExpand

Quantum Gravity and Extra Dimensions at High-Energy Colliders
Recently it has been pointed out that the characteristic quantum-gravity scale could be as low as the weak scale in theories with gravity propagating in higher dimensions. The observed smallness ofExpand
Quantum gravity at a TeV and the renormalization of Newton's constant
We examine whether renormalization effects can cause Newton's constant to change dramatically with energy, perhaps even reducing the scale of quantum gravity to the TeV region without theExpand

The very successful 2010–2012 operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has changed the landscape of particle physics. The long-awaited Higgs boson has been discovered, and—yet—there are no signsExpand
New dimensions at a millimeter to a Fermi and superstrings at a TeV
Abstract Recently, a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem has been proposed which does not rely on low energy supersymmetry or technicolor. The gravitational and gauge interactions uniteExpand
Collider signatures of new large space dimensions
Recently, Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali have proposed that there are extra compact dimensions of space, accessible to gravity but not to ordinary matter, which could be macroscopically large.Expand
A Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension
We propose a new higher-dimensional mechanism for solving the hierarchy problem. The weak scale is generated from the Planck scale through an exponential hierarchy. However, this exponential arisesExpand

We examine the LHC phenomenology of quantum black holes in models of TeV gravity. By quantum black holes we mean black holes of the smallest masses and entropies, far from the semiclassical regime.Expand
Black hole bound on the number of species and quantum gravity at CERN LHC
In theories with a large number N of particle species, black hole physics imposes an upper bound on the mass of the species equal to M-Planck/root N. This bound suggests a novel solution to theExpand
