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…

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

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

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

Invisible $K_L$ decays in the SM extensions

In the Standard Model (SM) the branching ratio for the decay $K_L \to \nu \bar{\nu}$ into two neutrinos is helicity suppressed and predicted to be very small $ \leq O(10^{-17})$. We consider two

Probing new physics scenarios of muon g − 2 via J/ψ decay at BESIII

The disagreement between the standard model prediction and the experimental measurement of muon anomalous magnetic moment can be alleviated by invoking an additional particle which is either a vector

Low scale seesaw models for low scale U(1)Lμ−Lτ symmetry

We propose models for neutrino masses and mixing in the framework of low scale $U(1)_{L_\mu-L_\tau}$ gauge extension of the standard model. The models are designed to spontaneously break




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
