Title: Effective Field Theory of Gravity to All Orders
Comments: 30 pages + appendices and references
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (gr-qc); High Energy Physics - Theory (hep-th)

We construct the general effective field theory of gravity coupled to the Standard Model of particle physics, which we name GRSMEFT. Our method allows the systematic derivation of a non-redundant set of operators of arbitrary dimension with generic field content and gravity. We explicitly determine the pure gravity EFT up to dimension ten, the EFT of a shift-symmetric scalar coupled to gravity up to dimension eight, and the operator basis for the GRSMEFT up to dimension eight. Extensions to all orders are straightforward.

Title: The phase diagram of the Polyakov Nambu Jona-Lasinio approach for finite chemical potentials
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Theory (hep-th)

We extend the SU(3) (Polyakov) Nambu Jona-Lasinio in two ways: We introduce the next to leading order contribution (in $N_c$) in the partition function. This contribution contains explicit mesonic terms. We introduce a coupling between the gluon field and the quark degrees of freedom which goes beyond a simple rescaling of the critical temperature. With both these improvements we can reproduce, for vanishing chemical potentials, the lattice results for the thermal properties of a strongly interacting system like pressure, energy density, entropy density, interaction measure and the speed of sound. Also the expansion parameter towards small but finite chemical potentials agrees with the lattice results. Extending the calculations to finite chemical potentials (what does not require any new parameter) we find a first order phase transition up to a critical end point of $T_{CEP}= 110\ MeV$ and $\mu_q = 320\ MeV$. For very large chemical potentials, we find agreement with pQCD calculations. We calculate the mass of mesons and baryons as a function of temperature and chemical potential and the transition between the hadronic and the chirally restored phase. These calculations provide an equation of state in the whole $T,\mu$ plane an essential ingredient for dynamical calculations of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions but also for the physics of neutron stars and neutron star collisions.

Title: Flavoured leptogenesis and ${\rm CP}^{μτ}$ symmetry
Comments: 31 pages, 14 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We present a systematic study of leptogenesis in neutrino mass models with $\mu\tau$-flavoured CP symmetry. In addition to the strong hierarchical $N_1$-dominated scenario ($N_1$DS) in the `two flavour regime' of leptogenesis, we show that one may choose the right-handed (RH) neutrino mass hierarchy as mild as $M_2\simeq 4.7 M_1$ for a perfectly valid hierarchical $N_1$DS. This in turn reduces the lower bound on the allowed values of $M_1$, compared to what is stated in the literature. The consideration of flavour effects due to the heavy neutrinos also translate into an upper bound on $M_1$. It is only below this bound that the observed baryon-to-photon ratio can be realized for a standard ${ N_1}$ domination, else a substantial part of the parameter space is also compatible with $N_2$DS. We deduce conditions under which the baryon asymmetry produced by the second RH neutrino plays an important role. Finally, we discuss another interesting scenario where lepton asymmetry generated by $N_2$ in the two flavour regime faces washout by $N_1$ in the three flavour regime. Considering a hierarchical light neutrino mass spectrum, which is now favoured by cosmological observations, we show that at the end of $N_1$-leptogenesis, the asymmetry generated by $N_2$ survives only in the electron flavour and around $33\%$ of the parameter space is consistent with a pure $N_2$-leptogenesis.

Title: Boosted $W/Z$ Tagging with Jet Charge and Deep Learning
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We demonstrate that the classification of boosted, hadronically-decaying weak gauge bosons can be significantly improved over traditional cut-based and BDT-based methods using deep learning and the jet charge variable. We construct binary taggers for $W^+$ vs. $W^-$ and $Z$ vs. $W$ discrimination, as well as an overall ternary classifier for $W^+$/$W^-$/$Z$ discrimination. Besides a simple convolutional neural network (CNN), we also explore a composite of two CNNs, with different numbers of layers in the jet $p_{T}$ and jet charge channels. We find that this novel structure boosts the performance particularly when considering the $Z$ boson as signal. The methods presented here can enhance the physics potential in SM measurements and searches for new physics that are sensitive to the electric charge of weak gauge bosons.

Title: A generator of forward neutrons for ultra-peripheral collisions: $\textbf{n$\mathbf{_O^O}$n}$
Comments: 25 pages, 14 figures
Subjects: Nuclear Theory (nucl-th); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

The study of photon-induced reactions in collisions of heavy nuclei at RHIC and the LHC has become an important direction of the research program of these facilities in recent years. In particular, the production of vector mesons in ultra-peripheral collisions (UPC) has been intensively studied. Owing to the intense photon fluxes, the two nuclei participating in such processes undergo electromagnetic dissociation producing neutrons at beam rapidities. Here, we introduce the $\textbf{n$\mathbf{_O^O}$n}$ (pronounced noon) Monte Carlo program, which generates events containing such neutrons. $\textbf{n$\mathbf{_O^O}$n}$ is a ROOT based program that can be interfaced with existing generators of vector meson production in UPC or with theoretical calculations of such photonuclear processes. $\textbf{n$\mathbf{_O^O}$n}$ can also be easily integrated with the simulation programs of the experiments at RHIC and the LHC.

Title: EW-QCD interference in hadronic vector bosons at LHC
Comments: 10 pages, 16 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

The analysis of hadronic vector boson decays at LHC does not normally allow for interference with QCD production. These effects are studied here using the Sherpa package and can move by several GeV/c 2 the peak positions experiments would reconstruct. However, their impact depends strongly on the kinematics involved. The shifts expected in boosted W and Z bosons, which have been the subject of experimental study, are explored for the first time. The effects in the channels examined are all very small or negligible, but this may not true if lower transverse momenta are analysed, for example in the experimental trigger systems.

Title: Intrinsic three-body nuclear interaction from a constituent quark model
Comments: 8 pages, 1 figure
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); Nuclear Theory (nucl-th)

We study the short distance part of the intrinsic three-nucleon interaction in a constituent quark model with color-spin interaction. For that purpose we first calculate the transformation coefficient between the tribaryon configuration and their corresponding three baryon basis. Using a formula for the intrinsic three-body interaction in terms of a tribaryon configuration, we find that after subtracting the corresponding two-baryon contributions, the intrinsic three-body interaction vanishes in flavor SU(3) symmetric limit for all quantum numbers for the three nucleon states. We further find that the intrinsic three-body interaction also vanishes for flavor-spin type of quark interaction.

Title: CIMBA: fast Monte Carlo generation using cubic interpolation
Authors: Philip Ilten
Comments: 16 pages, 6 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Experiment (hep-ex)

Monte Carlo generation of high energy particle collisions is a critical tool for both theoretical and experimental particle physics, connecting perturbative calculations to phenomenological models, and theory predictions to full detector simulation. The generation of minimum bias events can be particularly computationally expensive, where non-perturbative effects play an important role and specific processes and fiducial regions can no longer be well defined. In particular scenarios, particle guns can be used to quickly sample kinematics for single particles produced in minimum bias events. CIMBA (Cubic Interpolation for Minimum Bias Approximation) provides a comprehensive package to smoothly sample predefined kinematic grids, from any general purpose Monte Carlo generator, for all particles produced in minimum bias events. These grids are provided for a number of beam configurations including those of the Large Hadron Collider.

Title: Towards the meV limit of the effective neutrino mass in neutrinoless double-beta decays
Comments: 16 pages, 6 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Experiment (hep-ex)

In this paper, we emphasize why it is important for future neutrinoless double-beta ($0\nu\beta\beta$) decay experiments to reach the sensitivity to the effective neutrino mass $|m^{}_{\beta\beta}| \approx 1~{\rm meV}$. Assuming such a sensitivity and the precisions on neutrino oscillation parameters after the JUNO experiment, we fully explore the constrained regions of the lightest neutrino mass $m^{}_1$ and two Majorana-type CP-violating phases $\{\rho, \sigma\}$. The implications for the neutrino mass spectrum, the effective neutrino mass $m^{}_\beta$ in beta decays and the sum of three neutrino masses $\Sigma \equiv m^{}_1 + m^{}_2 + m^{}_3$ relevant for cosmological observations are also discussed.

Title: Renormalization group improved pressure for cold and dense QCD
Comments: 16 pages and 7 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Theory (hep-th); Nuclear Theory (nucl-th)

We apply the renormalization group optimized perturbation theory (RGOPT)to evaluate the QCD (matter) pressure at the two-loop level considering three flavors of massless quarks in a dense and cold medium. Already at leading order ($\alpha_s^0$), which builds on the simple one loop (RG resummed) term, our technique provides a non-trivial non-perturbative approximation which is completely renormalization group invariant. At the next-to-leading order the comparison between the RGOPT and the pQCD predictions shows that the former method provides results which are in better agreement with the state-of-the-art $higher \, order$ perturbative results, which include a contribution of order $\alpha_s^3 \ln^2 \alpha_s$. At the same time one also observes that the RGOPT predictions are less sensitive to variations of the arbitrary $\overline {\rm MS}$ renormalization scale than those obtained with pQCD. These results indicate that the RGOPT provides an efficient resummation scheme which may be considered as an alternative to lattice simulations at high baryonic densities.

Title: Neutrino Mass Spectrum for Co-Bimaximal Mixings from Quantum Gravity
Authors: Bipin Singh Koranga (Department of Physics, Kirori Mal college, University of Delhi, India)
Comments: 10 pages. arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:1006.5553, arXiv:0810.4394
Journal-ref: Int. J. Modern Theo. Physics, 2019, 8(1)
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We consider non-renormalizable interaction term as a perturbation of the conventional neutrino mass matrix. Quantum gravitational (Planck scale )effects lead to an effective $SU(2)_L\times U(1)$ invariant dimension-5 Lagrangian involving neutrino and Higgs fields,On symmetry breaking, this operator gives rise to correction to the neutrino masses and mixing. The gravitational interaction $M_X=M_{pl}$ which gives rise to additional terms in neutrino mass matrix. We also assume that, just above the electroweak breaking scale, neutrino masses are nearly degenerate and their mixing is Co-bimaximal mixing by assuming mixing angle $\theta_{13}\neq0 = 10^{o}$, $\theta_{23}=\frac{\pi}{4}$, $\tan\theta_{12}^ 2 = \frac{1-3sin\theta_{13}^2}{2} = 34^{o}$ and Dirac phase $\delta=\pm\frac{\pi}{2}$.There additional term can be considered to be perturbation of the GUT scale Co-bimaximal neutrino mass matrix. The relation consider with solar and atmospheric neutrino oscillation data predicted above GUT scale $m_1' \simeq 0.00001eV-0.00003eV$, $m_2' \simeq 0.00008eV-0.00012$, and $m_3' \simeq 0.000207eV-000320eV$.

Title: How to include exclusive $J/ψ$ production data in global PDF analyses
Comments: 14 pages, 6 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We compare the cross section for exclusive $J/\psi$ photoproduction calculated at NLO in the collinear factorization approach with HERA and LHCb data. Using the optimum scale formalism together with the subtraction of the low $k_t<Q_0$ contribution from the NLO coefficient function to avoid double counting we show that the existing global parton distribution functions (PDFs) are consistent with the data within their uncertainties. However, at low $x$ the uncertainties of the present global PDFs are large. On the other hand, the accuracy of the LHCb data are rather good. Therefore, these data provide the possibility to directly measure the gluon PDF over the very large interval of $x$, $10^{-6}<x<10^{-2}$, at a fixed low scale.

Title: Neutrino mass model with a modular $S_4$ symmetry
Comments: 13 pages, 3 figures, 2 tables. arXiv admin note: text overlap with arXiv:1908.07457, arXiv:1907.04716, arXiv:1907.13520
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We propose a predictive lepton model under a modular $S_4$ symmetry, and the neutrino mass matrix arises from a combination of canonical seesaw at tree level and radiative seesaw at one-loop level. Supposing the Majorana neutrino to be embedded into doublet under $S_4$, the lightest neutrino mass is zero. In addition, we show predictions for phases, mixings, and masses such as the effective mass for the neutrinoless double beta decay and the total mass of neutrinos that originate from the specific textures due to the assignment of $S_4$ and its modular weight. The modular weight also plays an important role in stabilizing the DM candidate.

Title: $keV$ scale dark matter, baryogenesis and neutrinoless double beta decay in minimal extended seesaw
Comments: 34 pages, 10 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We have studied $keV$ scale dark matter (DM), neutrinoless double beta decay (NDBD) and baryogenesis within minimal extended seesaw (MES). A generic model based on $A_4\times Z_4$ flavor symmetry is used to explain both normal and inverted hierarchy mass pattern of neutrino and also to accommodate the $keV$ ranged sterile netrino mass. Significant results on effective neutrino mass are observed in presence of $keV$ sterile neutrino in NDBD. In order to validate DM within this model, we have checked decay width and relic abundance of the heavy neutrino flavor and which constrained sterile neutrino DM mass. Baryogenesis is also studied simultaneously within this framework and Dirac CP phase get constrained with the results. Co-relation among the observable and model parameters are also carried out within this framework.

Title: Nucleon-antinucleon annihilation at LEAR
Authors: Claude Amsler
Comments: 27 pages, 29 figures, Invited talk at the ECT* workshop on Antiproton-nucleus interactions and related phenomena
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); Nuclear Experiment (nucl-ex); Nuclear Theory (nucl-th)

This report is a historical review of the salient results in low energy antiproton-proton and antineutron-proton annihilation obtained at the Low Energy Antiproton Ring (LEAR), which was operated at CERN between 1983 and 1996. The intention is to provide guidelines for future experiments at the CERN AD/ELENA complex and elsewhere. In the spirit of this workshop, hadron spectroscopy - one of the cornerstones at LEAR - is briefly mentioned, while emphasis is put on the annihilation mechanism on one and two nucleons, the final state multiplicity distributions and the contributions from quarks, in particular in annihilation channels involving strangeness.

Title: Dynamical resolution scale in transverse momentum distributions at the LHC
Comments: 16 pages, 7 figures
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

The QCD evolution of transverse momentum dependent (TMD) distribution functions has recently been formulated in a parton branching (PB) formalism. In this approach, soft-gluon coherence effects are taken into account by introducing the soft-gluon resolution scale and exploiting the relation between transverse-momentum recoils and branching scales. In this work we investigate the implications of dynamical, i.e., branching scale dependent, resolution scales. We present both analytical studies and numerical solution of PB evolution equations in the presence of dynamical resolution scales. We use this to compare PB results with other approaches in the literature, and to analyze predictions for transverse momentum distributions in $Z$-boson production at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Title: Particles propagation on a torus
Authors: Peng Guo
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Lattice (hep-lat); Strongly Correlated Electrons (cond-mat.str-el); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

Based on variational principle and Faddeev method, we present a general framework toward finding propagating solutions of multiple interacting particles on a torus. Two different versions of multiple particles secular equations are presented. Version one shows a close relation between propagating solutions on a torus and infinite volume dynamics. Second may be more suitable and robust for the task of lattice QCD data analysis. The proposed formalism may also be useful for the study of few-body interaction effect on electronic band structure in condensed matter physics.

Title: X-ray Intra-day Variability of the TeV Blazar Mrk 421 with Suzaku
Comments: 16 pages, 3 figures, 3 tables, accepted by ApJ
Subjects: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena (astro-ph.HE); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

We present X-ray flux and spectral analyses of the three pointed Suzaku observations of the TeV high synchrotron peak blazar Mrk 421 taken throughout its complete operational duration. The observation taken on 5 May 2008 is, at 364.6 kiloseconds (i.e., 101.3 hours), the longest and most evenly sampled continuous observation of this source, or any blazar, in the X-ray energy 0.8 - 60 keV until now. We found large amplitude intra-day variability in all soft and hard bands in all the light curves. The discrete correction function analysis of the light curves in soft and hard bands peaks on zero lag, showing that the emission in hard and soft bands are cospatial and emitted from the same population of leptons. The hardness ratio plots imply that the source is more variable in the harder bands compared to the softer bands. The source is harder-when-brighter, following the general behavior of high synchrotron peak blazars. Power spectral densities of all three light curves are red noise dominated, with a range of power spectra slopes. If one assumes that the emission originates very close to the central super massive black hole, a crude estimate for its mass, of ~ 4 * 10^{8} M_{\odot}, can be made; but if the variability is due to perturbations arising there that are advected into the jet and are thus Doppler boosted, substantially higher masses are consistent with the quickest seen variations. We briefly discuss the possible physical mechanisms most likely responsible for the observed flux and spectral variability.

Title: Electron-positron pair production in frequency modulated laser fields
Comments: 8 pages, 6 figures
Subjects: Quantum Physics (quant-ph); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

The momentum spectrum and the number density of created electron-positron pairs in a frequency modulated laser field are investigated using quantum kinetic equation. It is found that the momentum spectrum presents obvious interference pattern. This is an imprint of the frequency modulated field on the momentum spectrum, because the momentum peaks correspond to the pair production process by absorbing different frequency component photons. Moreover, the interference effect can also be understood qualitatively by analyzing turning point structures. The study of the pair number density shows that the number density is very sensitive to modulation parameters and can be enhanced by over two orders of magnitude for certain modulation parameters, which may provide a new way to increase the number of created electron-positron pairs in future experiments.

Title: Dark matter searches with the IceCube Upgrade
Authors: Sebastian Baur (for the IceCube Collaboration)
Comments: Presented at the 36th International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC 2019). See arXiv:1907.11699 for all IceCube contributions
Subjects: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena (astro-ph.HE); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are well-motivated candidates for Dark Matter (DM). WIMP models often include self-annihilation into Standard Model particles such as neutrinos which could potentially be detected by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. Various searches for a dark matter induced signal have been performed with the existing IceCube detector. However, since there is so far no evidence for WIMPs at TeV scales, more attention is brought to DM candidates at GeV masses, for which the IceCube detector is not sensitive due to its energy threshold. The IceCube collaboration is currently preparing the construction of the IceCube Upgrade which is planned to be deployed in the 2022/2023 South Pole summer season. The IceCube Upgrade will consist of 7 new in-ice strings with about 700 additional optical sensors. This dense sensor array inside the IceCube-DeepCore volume will enhance the reconstruction capability of few-GeV neutrinos. We present first studies on the potential improvements of this upgrade on IceCube's sensitivity to Dark Matter annihilating in the Galactic Center.

Title: Multi-messenger tests of cosmic-ray acceleration in radiatively inefficient accretion flows
Comments: 15 pages, 6 figures, 3 tables
Subjects: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena (astro-ph.HE); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph)

The cores of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) have been suggested as the sources of IceCube neutrinos, and recent numerical simulations have indicated that hot AGN coronae of Seyfert galaxies and radiatively inefficient accretion flows (RIAFs) of low-luminosity AGNs (LLAGNs) may be promising sites of ion acceleration. We present detailed studies on detection prospects of high-energy multi-messenger emissions from RIAFs in nearby LLAGNs. We construct a model of RIAFs that can reproduce the observational features of the current X-ray observations of nearby LLAGNs. We then calculate the high-energy particle emissions from nearby individual LLAGNs, including MeV gamma rays from thermal electrons, TeV--PeV neutrinos produced by non-thermal protons, and sub-GeV to sub-TeV gamma rays from proton-induced electromagnetic cascades. We find that, although these are beyond the reach of current facilities, proposed future experiments such as e-ASTROGAM and IceCube-Gen2 should be able to detect the MeV gamma rays and the neutrinos, respectively, or else they can place meaningful constraints on the parameter space of the model. On the other hand, the detection of high-energy gamma rays due to the electromagnetic cascades will be challenging with the current and near-future experiments, such as Fermi and Cherenkov Telescope Array. In an accompanying paper, we demonstrate that LLAGNs can be a source of the diffuse soft gamma-ray and TeV--PeV neutrino backgrounds, whereas in the present paper, we focus on the prospects for multi-messenger tests which can be applied to reveal the nature of the high-energy neutrinos and photons from LLAGNs.

Title: Thermal Broadening of Bottomonia: Lattice Non-Relativistic QCD with Extended Operators
Subjects: High Energy Physics - Lattice (hep-lat); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); Nuclear Theory (nucl-th)

We present lattice non-relativistic QCD calculations of bottomonia correlation functions at temperatures $T \simeq 150-350$ MeV. The correlation functions were computed using extended bottomonia operators, and on background gauge-field configurations for 2+1-flavor QCD having physical kaon and nearly-physical pion masses. We analyzed these correlation functions based on simple theoretically-motivated parameterizations of the corresponding spectral functions. The results of our analyses are compatible with significant in-medium thermal broadening of the ground state S- and P-wave bottomonia.

Title: Using SPTpol, Planck 2015, and non-CMB data to constrain tilted spatially-flat and untilted non-flat $Λ$CDM, XCDM, and $φ$CDM dark energy inflation cosmologies
Comments: 24 pages, 14 figures, 6 tables
Subjects: Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics (astro-ph.CO); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (gr-qc); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Theory (hep-th)

We use six tilted spatially-flat and untilted non-flat dark energy cosmological models in analyses of South Pole Telescope polarization (SPTpol) cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, alone and in combination with Planck 2015 CMB data and non-CMB data. All best-fit cosmological models have CMB anisotropy power spectra that do not provide good fits to the SPTpol data, differing at the 2 to 3$\sigma$ level. In all models, there is no significant difference between the model that best fits the SPTpol data and the one that best fits the Planck CMB and non-CMB data. When the smaller angular scale SPTpol data are used jointly with either the Planck data alone or with the Planck CMB and the non-CMB data to constrain untilted non-flat models, spatially-closed models remain favored over their corresponding flat limits. When used in conjunction with Planck data, non-CMB data (baryon acoustic oscillation measurements in particular, from six experiments) have significantly more constraining power than the SPTpol data.
