On the phenomenology of a non-linear $U(1)_{\rm Y}$ sector

  title={On the phenomenology of a non-linear \$U(1)\_\{\rm Y\}\$ sector},
  author={Paolo Fabritiis and P. C. Malta and Jos'e Abdalla Helayel-Neto},
In this work we perform a non-linear extension of the U(1)Y sector of the Standard Model leading to novel quartic effective interactions between the neutral gauge bosons. We study the induced non-linear effects through high-energy processes resulting in three photons, namely, Z-boson decay and electron-positron annihilation. We also discuss the scattering of neutral gauge bosons induced at tree level. Available experimental data on these processes do not yield viable lower bounds on the mass… Expand

Non-abelian effects in non-linear quantum electrodynamics and in Z0 decay into three photons
Abstract The three-photon decay mode of the neutral weak boson Z0 is studied as an example of a more general class of reactions such as the light by light and the Delbruck scatterings, the splittingExpand
Quartic Gauge Boson Couplings ∗
We review the recent progress in studying the anomalous electroweak quartic gauge boson couplings (QGBCs) at the LHC and the next generation high energy ee linear colliders (LCs). The main focus isExpand
Scattering of W and Z bosons at high-energy lepton colliders
We present a new study of quasi-elastic W and Z scattering processes in high-energy $$e^+e^-$$e+e- collisions, based on and extrapolating the low-energy effective theory which extends the standardExpand
The price of an electroweak monopole
Abstract In a recent paper, Cho, Kim and Yoon (CKY) have proposed a version of the SU ( 2 ) × U ( 1 ) Standard Model with finite-energy monopole and dyon solutions. The CKY model postulates that theExpand
▪ Abstract We review studies of the trilinear gauge-boson couplings at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider from data collected by the CDF and DO collaborations during the period 1992–1996. TheExpand
Light-by-Light Scattering Constraint on Born-Infeld Theory.
The recent measurement by ATLAS of light-by-light scattering in LHC Pb-Pb collisions is the first direct evidence for this basic process. We find that it excludes a range of the mass scale of aExpand
Study of multiphoton final states and tests of QED in e + e - collisions at √s up to 209 GeV
The process e+ e- -> n gamma with n =2 is studied at centre-of-mass energies ranging from \root(s)=192 to 208 GeV. The data sample corresponds to a total integrated luminosity of 427 1/pb. The totalExpand
Electromagnetic Properties of the Z Boson II . Ward Identities for ZT 7 and ZZ 7 Green ' s Functions
Using the invariance under BRS transformations we derive Ward identities for . the Z77 and ZZ7 Green's functions. Anomalous contributions to these identities are also obtained using the path integralExpand

The lowest-dimensional effective Lagrangians describing the decay of a neutral massive vector boson into three photons are considered and a generalization of some earlier results appearing in the literature is generalized. Expand
Electroweak monopoles with a non-linearly realized weak hypercharge
We present a finite-energy electroweak-monopole solution obtained by considering non-linear extensions of the hypercharge sector of the Electroweak Theory, based on logarithmic and exponentialExpand
