Abstract Measurements of differential cross sections dσ/dϕ* and double-differential cross sections d2σ/dϕ*d|y| for inclusive Z boson production are presented using the dielectron and dimuon final states. The kinematic observable ϕ* correlates with the dilepton transverse momentum but has better resolution, and y is the dilepton rapidity. The analysis is based on data collected...

AbstractThe Holographic Wess-Zumino (HWZ) consistency condition is shown through a step by step mapping of renormalization group flows to Hamiltonian systems, to lead to the Holographic anomaly. This condition codifies how the energy scale, when treated as the emergent bulk direction in Holographic theories, is put on equal footing as the other directions of the space the field...

Abstract We investigate the bounds on light pseudoscalars that arise from a variety of collider searches. Special attention is thereby devoted to the mass regions [3, 5] GeV and [9, 11] GeV, in which a meaningful theoretical description has to include estimates of non-perturbative effects such as the mixing of the pseudoscalar with QCD bound states. A compendium of formulas that...

AbstractIn this paper we explore a new approach to studying three-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) super-Yang-Mills on a lattice. Our strategy is to complexify the Donaldson-Witten twist of four-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) super-Yang-Mills to make it amenable to a lattice formulation and we find that lattice gauge invariance forces the model to live in at most three dimensions...
