Theory for Baryon Number and Dark Matter at the LHC

  journal={Physical Review D},
We investigate the possibility to test the simplest theory for spontaneous baryon number violation at the Large Hadron Collider. In this context the baryon number is a local gauge symmetry spontaneously broken at the low scale through the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism. This theory predicts the existence of a leptophobic neutral gauge boson and a fermionic dark matter candidate with baryon number. We study the gauge boson and Higgs decays, and explore the connection between collider signatures…

We investigate a simple theory where baryon number (B) and lepton number (L) are local gauge symmetries. In this theory B and L are on the same footing and the anomalies are canceled by adding a

We investigate the dark matter and the cosmological baryon asymmetry in a simple theory where baryon (B) and lepton (L) number are local gauge symmetries that are spontaneously broken. In this model,

Simple models are proposed where the baryon and lepton number are gauged and spontaneously broken near the weak scale. The models use a fourth generation that is vector-like with respect to the

Gauge theory for baryon and lepton numbers with leptoquarks.
New extensions of the standard model are found which predict the existence of fermions that carry both baryon and lepton numbers (i.e., leptoquarks) and the local baryonic and leptonic symmetries can be broken at a scale close to the electroweak scale.

A wider framework involving the existence of generations with exotic SU(2){sub {ital L}}{direct product}U(1){ sub {ital Y}} quantum numbers is considered, which allows us to derive a spectrum of fermions which contain the known quarks and leptons.

Hidden GeV-scale interactions of quarks.
A tight upper limit on the gauge coupling of light Z(') bosons is imposed by the anomaly cancellation conditions in conjunction with collider bounds on new charged fermions, allowing quark couplings as large as 0.2 for a mass of a few GeV.
