Parton Distribution Functions, $\alpha_s$ and Heavy-Quark Masses for LHC Run II

We determine a new set of parton distribution functions (ABMP16), the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s$ and the quark masses $m_c$, $m_b$ and $m_t$ in a global fit to next-to-next-to-leading order

Extra $$Z^{\prime }$$Z′s and $$W^{\prime }$$W′s in heterotic-string derived models

The ATLAS and CMS collaborations recently recorded possible excess in the di-boson production at the di-boson invariant mass at around 2 TeV. Such an excess may be produced if there exist additional

Gauge kinetic mixing and leptophobic Z ′ in E 6 and SO ( 10 )

We examine the influence of gauge kinetic mixing on the couplings of a TeV scale ${Z}^{\ensuremath{'}}$ in both ${E}_{6}$ and $\mathrm{SO}(10)$ models. The strength of such mixing, which arises due

Discovery and identification of extra gauge bosons

The discovery potential and diagnostic abilities of proposed future colliders for new heavy neutral ($Z'$) and charged ($W'$) gauge bosons are summarized. Typical bounds achievable on $M_{Z',W'}$ at

DYTurbo: fast predictions for Drell–Yan processes

Drell–Yan lepton pair production processes are extremely important for standard model (SM) precision tests and for beyond the SM searches at hadron colliders. Fast and accurate predictions are

Measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry in Z/γ∗ → μ+μ− decays and determination of the effective weak mixing angle

A bstractThe forward-backward charge asymmetry for the process qq¯→Z/γ∗→μ+μ−$$ q\overline{q}\to Z/{\gamma}^{\ast}\to {\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{-} $$ is measured as a function of the invariant mass of the

An update on vector boson pair production at hadron colliders

We present numerical results (including full one-loop QCD corrections) for the processes $p\overline{p}$ and $p\stackrel{\ensuremath{\rightarrow}}{p}{W}^{+}{W}^{\ensuremath{-}},$

Classification of nonsupersymmetric Pati-Salam heterotic string models

We extend the classification of fermionic $\mathbb{Z}_2\times\mathbb{Z}_2$ heterotic string orbifolds to non--supersymmetric Pati--Salam (PS) models in two classes of vacua, that we dub $\tilde

$$Z'$$s and sterile neutrinos from heterotic string models: exploring $$Z'$$ mass exclusion limits

We investigate the impact of sterile neutrinos on the decay rate of extra $$Z'$$ Z ′ s with mass in the TeV range in heterotic string derived models. We explore the impact of sterile neutrinos
