Experimental measurements of the ratios \( R\left({D}^{\left(\ast \right)}\right)\equiv \frac{\Gamma \left(B\to {D}^{\left(*\right)}\tau v\right)}{\Gamma \left(B\to {D}^{\left(*\right)}\ell v\right)}\left(\ell =e,\mu \right) \) show a 3.9σ deviation from the Standard Model prediction. In the absence of light right-handed neutrinos, a new physics contribution to b → cτν decays ...

We propose that the intrinsic geometry of holographic screens should be described by the Newton-Cartan geometry. As a test of this proposal, we show that the evolution equations of the screen can be written in a covariant form in terms of a stress tensor, an energy current, and a momentum one-form. We derive the expressions for the stress tensor, energy density, and momentum ...

We have computed the self-energies and a set of three-particle vertex functions for massless QCD at the four-loop level in the \( \overline{\mathrm{MS}} \) renormalization scheme. The vertex functions are evaluated at points where one of the momenta vanishes. Analytical results are obtained for a generic gauge group and with the full gauge dependence, which was made possible by ...

We further explore the connection between holographic O(n) tensor models and random matrices. First, we consider the simplest non-trivial uncolored tensor model and show that the results for the density of states, level spacing and spectral form factor are qualitatively identical to the colored case studied in arXiv:1612.06330. We also explain an overall 16-fold degeneracy by ...

We study what happens to the N , Δ and Ω baryons in the hadronic gas and the quark-gluon plasma, with particular interest in parity doubling and its emergence as the plasma is heated. This is done using simulations of lattice QCD, employing the FASTSUM anisotropic N f = 2 + 1 ensembles, with four temperatures below and four above the deconfinement transition temperature. Below T c ...

This is an addendum to the article JHEP 11 (2015) 205 [1]. The figures 3 (right), 4 (right) and 5 are updated with published results on non-prompt J/ψ-meson production from the CMS collaboration [2].

We study diffusion and butterfly velocity (v B ) in two holographic models, linear axion and axion-dilaton model, with a momentum relaxation parameter (β) at finite density or chemical potential (μ). Axion-dilaton model is particularly interesting since it shows linear-T -resistivity, which may have something to do with the universal bound of diffusion. At finite density, there are ...

We show how to construct seven-dimensional half-maximally supersymmetric consistent truncations of 11-/10-dimensional SUGRA using SL(5) exceptional field theory. Such truncations are defined on generalised SU(2)-structure manifolds and give rise to seven-dimensional half-maximal gauged supergravities coupled to n vector multiplets and thus with scalar coset space \( ...

We numerically construct asymptotically AdS 4 solutions to Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton theory. These have a dipolar electrostatic potential turned on at the conformal boundary \( {S}^2\times {\mathrm{\mathbb{R}}}_t \). We find two classes of geometries: AdS soliton solutions that encode the full backreaction of the electric field on the AdS geometry without a horizon, and neutral ...

Using the approach based on conformal symmetry we calculate the three-loop (NNLO) contribution to the evolution equation for flavor-nonsinglet leading twist operators in the \( \overline{\mathrm{MS}} \) scheme. The explicit expression for the three-loop kernel is derived for the corresponding light-ray operator in coordinate space. The expansion in local operators is performed and ...

We study maximally supersymmetric Anti-de Sitter backgrounds in consistent \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) truncations of type IIB supergravity compactified on the Sasaki-Einstein manifold T 1,1. In particular, we focus on truncations that contain fields coming from the nontrivial second and third cohomology forms on T 1,1. These give rise to \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) super-gravity coupled to two ...

The Einstein equations describing the black-brane dynamics both in Minkowski and AdS background were recently recast in the form of coupled diffusion equations in the large-D(imension) limit. Using such results in the literature, we formulate a higher-order perturbation theory of black branes in time domain and present the general form of solutions for arbitrary initial conditions. ...

At low energies or temperatures, maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on \( {\mathbb{R}}^{(t)}\times {S}^1 \) with large N gauge group SU(N ) and strong t’Hooft coupling is conjectured to be dual to the low energy dynamics of a collection of D0-branes on a circle. We construct thermal states in the gravitational side of the correspondence where we find a first-order phase ...

We study supersymmetric (SUSY) models in which the muon g −2 discrepancy and the dark matter relic abundance are simultaneously explained. The muon g − 2 discrepancy, or a 3σ deviation between the experimental and theoretical results of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, can be resolved by SUSY models, which implies at least three SUSY multiplets have masses of \( \mathcal{O}(100) ...

Future hadron colliders will have a remarkable capacity to discover massive new particles, but their capabilities for precision measurements of couplings that can reveal underlying mechanisms have received less study. In this work we study the capability of future hadron colliders to shed light on a precise, focused question: is the higgs mass of 125 GeV explained by the MSSM? If ...

We examine the low-lying quarter BPS spectrum of a 2d conformal field theory with target Sym N (K3) at various points in the moduli space, and look at a more refined count than the ordinary elliptic genus. We compute growth of the spectrum at both the symmetric orbifold point, as well as at the supergravity point in the moduli space. Finally we do a decomposition of the spectra ...

We investigate the ultraviolet (UV) behaviour of 6D N=1 supersymmetric effective (Abelian) gauge theories compactified on a two-torus (T 2) with magnetic flux. To this purpose we compute offshell the one-loop correction to the Wilson line state self-energy. The offshell calculation is actually necessary to capture the usual effective field theory expansion in powers of (∂/Λ). ...

The complex Langevin method and the generalized Lefschetz-thimble method are two closely related approaches to the sign problem, which are both based on complexification of the original dynamical variables. The former can be viewed as a generalization of the stochastic quantization using the Langevin equation, whereas the latter is a deformation of the integration contour using the ...

We study the holographic entanglement entropy and mutual information for Lorentz boosted subsystems. In holographic CFTs at zero and finite temperature, we find that the mutual information gets divergent in a universal way when the end points of two subsystems are light-like separated. In Lifshitz and hyperscaling violating geometries dual to non-relativistic theories, we show that ...

We consider high-mass systems of two or more particles that are produced by QCD hard scattering in hadronic collisions. We examine the azimuthal correlations between the system and one of its particles. We point out that the perturbative QCD computation of such azimuthal correlations and asymmetries can lead to divergent results at fixed perturbative orders. The fixed-order ...

In our recent work, we proposed a differential operator for the evaluation of the multi-dimensional residues on isolated (zero-dimensional) poles. In this paper we discuss some new insight on evaluating the (generalized) Cachazo-He-Yuan (CHY) forms of the scattering amplitudes using this differential operator. We introduce a tableau represen-tation for the coefficients appearing in ...

A brane construction of an integrable lattice model is proposed. The model is composed of Belavin’s R-matrix, Felder’s dynamical R-matrix, the Bazhanov-Sergeev-Derkachov-Spiridonov R-operator and some intertwining operators. This construction implies that a family of surface defects act on supersymmetric indices of four-dimensional \( \mathcal{N} \) = ...

We find that the equations describing T-branes with constant worldvolume fields are identical to the equations found by Banks, Seiberg and Shenker twenty years ago to describe longitudinal five-branes in the BFSS matrix model. Besides giving new ways to construct T-brane solutions, this connection also helps elucidate the physics of T-branes in the regime of parameters where their ...

Hellerman et al. (arXiv:1505.01537) have shown that in a generic CFT the spectrum of operators carrying a large U(1) charge can be analyzed semiclassically in an expansion in inverse powers of the charge. The key is the operator state correspondence by which such operators are associated with a finite density superfluid phase for the theory quantized on the cylinder. The dynamics ...
