The 3.6 \sigma discrepancy between the predicted and measured values of the anomalous magnetic moment of positive muons can be explained by the existence of a new dark boson Z_\mu with a mass in the sub-GeV range, which is coupled predominantly to the second and third lepton generations through the L_\mu - L_\tau current . After a discussion of the present phenomenological bounds on the Z_\mu coupling, we show that if the Z_\mu exists, it could be observed in the reaction \mu+Z \to \mu+Z+Z_\mu…

Search for muon-philic new light gauge boson at Belle II

Abstract Motivated by the long-lasting 3.5σ discrepancy in the anomalous magnetic moment of muon, we consider a new muon-specific force mediated by a light gauge boson, X, with mass m X  < 2m

Dark matter interactions with muons in neutron stars

Neutron stars contain a significant number of stable muons due to the large chemical potential and degenerate electrons. This makes them the unique vessel to capture muonphilic dark matter, which

(g − 2)e, μ and strongly interacting dark matter with collider implications

Abstract The quest for new physics beyond the Standard Model is boosted by the recently observed deviation in the anomalous magnetic moments of muon and electron from their respective theoretical

No-lose theorem for discovering the new physics of (g−2)μ at muon colliders

We perform a model-exhaustive analysis of all possible beyond Standard Model (BSM) solutions to the $(g-2)_\mu$ anomaly to study production of the associated new states at future muon colliders, and

Searching for muonic forces with the ATLAS detector

The LHC copiously produces muons via different processes, and the muon sample will be large at the high-luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). In this work we propose to leverage this large muon sample and utilize

Implication of hidden sub-GeV bosons for the (g−2)μ , Be8−He4 anomaly, proton charge radius, EDM of fermions, and dark axion portal

We discuss new physics phenomenology of hidden scalar ($S$), pseudoscalar ($P$), vector ($V$) and axial-vector ($A$) particles coupled to nucleons and leptons, which could give contributions to

New physics explanations of aμ in light of the FNAL muon g − 2 measurement

Abstract The Fermilab Muon g −2 experiment recently reported its first measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment $$ {a}_{\mu}^{\mathrm{FNAL}} $$ a μ FNAL , which is in full agreement with

Neutrino tridents at DUNE

The DUNE near detector will collect an unprecedented large number of neutrino interactions, allowing the precise measurement of rare processes such as neutrino trident production, i.e. the generation

Minimal Realization of Light Thermal Dark Matter.

We propose a minimal UV-complete model for kinematically forbidden dark matter (DM) leading to a sub-GeV thermal relic. Our crucial realization is that the two-Higgs-doublet model can provide a light




Abstract The mean stopping power for high-energy muons in matter can be described by 〈− dE / dx 〉= a ( E )+ b ( E ) E , where a ( E ) is the electronic stopping power and b ( E ) is the energy-scaled
