Quantum behavior of the John Lagrangian from the Fab Four class of Covariant Galileons is stud- ied. We consider one-loop corrections to the John interaction due to cubic scalar field interactions. Counter Terms are calculated, one of them belongs to the Fab Four class, the other one to Covariant Galileons. Read More

Radiaitve mechanism of conformal symmetry breaking in a comformal-invariant version of the Standard Model is considered. The Coleman-Weinberg mechanism of dimensional transmutation in this system gives rise to finite vacuum expectation values and, consequently, masses of scalar and spinor fields. A natural bootstrap between the energy scales of the top quark and Higgs boson is suggested. Read More

The neutrino and Higgs sectors in the SU(2}_1 X SU(2)_2 X U(1)_Y model with lepton-flavor non-universality are discussed. We show that active neutrinos can get Majorana masses from radiative corrections, after adding only new singly charged Higgs bosons. The mechanism for generating neutrino masses is the same as that shown in Zee models. Read More

This report was prepared in the context of the LPCC "Electroweak Precision Measurements at the LHC WG" and summarizes the activity of a subgroup dedicated to the systematic comparison of public Monte Carlo codes, which describe the Drell-Yan processes at hadron colliders, in particular at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This work represents an important step towards the definition of an accurate simulation framework necessary for very high-precision measurements of electroweak (EW) observables such as the $W$ boson mass and the weak mixing angle. All the codes considered in this report share at least next-to-leading-order (NLO) accuracy in the prediction of the total cross sections in an expansion either in the strong or in the EW coupling constant.

Radiative muon and tau lepton decays are described within the model-independent approach with the help of generalized Michel parameters. The exact dependence on charged lepton masses is taken into account. The results are relevant for modern and future experiments on muon and tau lepton decays. Read More

Von Neumann's procedure is applied for quantization of General Relativity. We quantize the initial data of dynamical variables at the Planck epoch, where the Hubble parameter coincides with the Planck mass. These initial data are defined via the Fock simplex in the tangent Minkowskian space-time and the Dirac conformal interval. Read More

QED radiative corrections to elastic electron-proton scattering at low energies are discussed. Corrections to the electron line and effects due to vacuum polarization are computed. Higher order effects are estimated for the conditions of the experiment on the electric and magnetic proton form factors by A1 Collaboration. Read More

Radiatively induced symmetry breaking is considered for a toy model with one scalar and one fermion field unified in a superfield. It is shown that the classical quartic self-interaction of the superfield possesses a quantum infrared singularity. Application of the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism for effective potential leads to the appearance of condensates and masses for both scalar and fermion components. Read More

This article presents new features of the MCSANC v.1.20 program, a Monte Carlo tool for calculation of the next-to-leading order electroweak and QCD corrections to various Standard Model processes. Read More

New model is suggested, where the Casimir mechanism is the source of masses and conformal symmetry breaking at the Planck epoch in the beginning of the Universe. The mechanism is the Casimir energy and associated condensate, which are resulted from the vacuum postulate and normal ordering of the conformal invariant Hamiltonian with respect to the quantum elementary field operators. It is shown that the Casimir top-quark condensate specifies the value of the Higgs particle mass without involving the Higgs tachyon mass, which is put equal to zero. Read More

A mechanism of radiatively induced breaking of the conformal symmetry in the Standard Model is suggested. The system of one scalar (Higgs) and one fermion (top-quark) fields with Yukawa and $\phi^4$ interactions is considered. The infrared instability of the Coleman-Weinberg effective potential for this system leads to the appearance of a finite renormalization scale and thus to breaking of the conformal symmetry. Read More

The problem of the description of two interacting particles is considered. It is shown that it can be reduced to the description of one particle in an external static potential even in a relativistic case. The method is based on the Maupertuis least action principle. Read More

Interaction of charged leptons with photons is considered for the case when one of the lepton legs is off the mass shell. The effect due to off-mass-shell shift in the anomalous magnetic moment is computed within one-loop approximation. Possible contributions of this effect in the muon $g-2$ measurements are discussed. Read More

Process of electron-positron annihilation into $\eta(\eta')2\pi$ is described within the extended NJL model in the energy range up to about 2 GeV. Contributions of intermediate vector mesons $\rho(770)$ and $\rho(1450)$ are taken into account. Results for the $\eta2\pi$ channel are found to be in a reasonable agreement with experimental data. Read More

The {\tt SANC} computer system is aimed at support of analytic and numeric calculations for experiments at colliders. The system is reviewed briefly. Recent results on high-precision description of the Drell-Yan processes at the LHC are presented. Read More

The ZFITTER project is aimed at the computation of high-precision theoretical predictions for various observables in high-energy electron-positron annihilation and other processes. The stages of the project development are described. Accent is made on applications to the analysis of LEP data. Read More

Isolated lepton momenta, in particular their directions are the most precisely measured quantities in pp collisions at LHC. This offers opportunities for multitude of precision measurements. It is of practical importance to verify if precision measurements with lep- tons in the final state require all theoretical effects evaluated simultaneously or if QED bremsstrahlung in the final state can be separated without unwanted precision loss. Read More

The low energy Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation, Higgs particle mass value, and the new observational cosmological data are considered as evidence of the condensate mechanism of conformal symmetry breaking at the quantum level. The condensate mechanism occurs by means of normal ordering of field operators in QCD, Minimal Standard Model of electroweak interactions without the Higgs potential, and the Dirac conformal General Relativity with long range forces. Read More

A mechanism of spontaneous conformal symmetry breaking based on field condensates in the Standard Model of strong and electroweak interactions is suggested. It is shown that an existence of the top quark condensate can supersede the tachyon mass term in the Higgs potential in the standard mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking. Considering the ratio of a field condensate to the corresponding mass power (depending on quantum statistics) for various fields as a conformal invariant, we obtain the Higgs boson mass to be about $130\pm 15$ GeV. Read More

The decay width $\tau\to\pi\omega\nu$ in the framework of the extended NJL model is calculated. The contributions of the intermediate vector mesons $\rho(770)$ and $\rho'(1450)$ are taken into account. The computed partial width and the spectral function of the decay $\tau\to\pi\omega\nu$ are in satisfactory agreement with experimental data. Read More

The Sommerfeld-Gamow-Sakharov factor is considered for the general case of arbitrary masses and energies. It is shown that the scalar triangular one-loop diagram gives the Coulomb singularity in radiative corrections at the threshold. The singular part of the correction is factorized at the complete Born cross section regardless of its partial wave decomposition. Read More

The Hamiltonian approach to the General Relativity is formulated as a joint nonlinear realization of conformal and affine symmetries by means of the Dirac scalar dilaton and the Maurer-Cartan forms. The dominance of the Casimir vacuum energy of physical fields provides a good description of the type Ia supernova luminosity distance--redshift relation. Introducing the uncertainty principle at the Planck's epoch within our model, we obtain the hierarchy of the Universe energy scales, which is supported by the observational data. Read More

Electromagnetic interactions of the ground and first radial excited states of $\eta$ and $\eta'$ mesons in the framework of the extended $U(3)\times U(3)$ NJL model are considered. The radial excitations are described with the help of polynomial form factor of the second order over the inner quark momentum. The solution of the $U_A(1)$ problem by means of 't Hooft interaction is taken into account. Read More

The processes of electron-positron annihilation into $\pi^0\gamma$ and into $\pi'(1300)\gamma$ are considered within the NJL model. Intermediate vector mesons $\rho^0$, $\omega$, $\rho'(1450)$, and $\omega'(1420)$ are taken into account. The latter two mesons are treated as the first radial excited states. Read More

The process of electron-positron annihilation into a pair of $\pi^0$ and $\omega$ mesons is considered in the framework of the SU(2)$\times$SU(2) Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model. Contributions of intermediate photons, $\rho(770)$ and $\rho'(1450)$ vector mesons are taken into account. It is shown that the bulk of the cross section at energies below 2 GeV is provided by the process with intermediate $\rho'(1450)$ state. Read More

Radiative decays $\pi^0({\pi^0}')\to\gamma+\gamma$, ${\pi^0}'\to\rho^0(\omega)+\gamma$, ${\rho^0}'(\omega')\to\pi^0+\gamma$, and ${\rho^0}'(\omega')\to{\pi^0}'+\gamma$ are considered in the framework of the non-local SU(2)$\times$SU(2) NJL model. Radially excited mesons are described with the help of polynomial form factor $f({k^\bot}^2)$, where $k^\bot$ is the quark momentum transverse to the external meson momentum. In spite of mixing of the ground and excited meson states in this model, the decay widths of $\pi^0\to\gamma+\gamma$ and $\rho^0(\omega)\to\pi^0+\gamma$ are found to be in good agreement with experimental data as in the standard local NJL model. Read More

The General Relativity formulated with the aid of the spin connection coefficients is considered in the finite space geometry of similarity with the Dirac scalar dilaton. We show that the redshift evolution of the General Relativity describes the vacuum creation of the matter in the empty Universe at the electroweak epoch and the dilaton vacuum energy plays a role of the dark energy.

We present the achievements of the last years of the experimental and theoretical groups working on hadronic cross section measurements at the low energy e+e- colliders in Beijing, Frascati, Ithaca, Novosibirsk, Stanford and Tsukuba and on tau decays. We sketch the prospects in these fields for the years to come. We emphasise the status and the precision of the Monte Carlo generators used to analyse the hadronic cross section measurements obtained as well with energy scans as with radiative return, to determine luminosities and tau decays.

NLO QCD corrections to charged and neutral current Drell-Yan processes and their implementation in the computer system SANC are considered. On the partonic level both quark-antiquark and quark-gluon scattering channels are taken into account. Subtractions of the collinear singularities in the massive case are compared with ones in the MS-bar scheme. Read More

In this note we summarize the status of the standard SANC modules (in the EW and QCD sectors of the Neutral Current branch - version 1.20 and the Charged Current branch - version 1.20). Read More

The manifestly Lorentz covariant formulation of quantum electrodynamics disregards Coulomb instantaneous interaction and its consequence - instantaneous bound states (IBS's). In this article we consider the way of construction the IBS generating functional using the operator generalization of the initial data in the Dirac Hamiltonian approach to QED. Read More

The mechanism of particle mass generation in the Standard Model is discussed. It is shown that non-zero vacuum expectation value of a scalar field together with the proper symmetry of the Lagrangian allow a certain class of scalar field potentials providing generation of gauge boson and fermion masses and keeping the electroweak sector of the model unchanged. Applying the minimality principle and certain additional conditions one can reduce the number of free parameters in the model. Read More

General Relativity and Standard Model are considered as a theory of dynamical scale symmetry with definite initial data compatible with the accepted Higgs mechanism. In this theory the Early Universe behaves like a factory of electroweak bosons and Higgs scalars, and it gives a possibility to identify three peaks in the Cosmic Microwave Background power spectrum with the contributions of photonic decays and annihilation processes of primordial Higgs, W, and Z bosons in agreement with the QED coupling constant, Weinberg's angle, and Higgs' particle mass of about 118 GeV.

The measurements of the Collins and Sivers asymmetries of identified hadrons produced in deep-inelastic scattering of 160 GeV/c muons on a transversely polarised 6LiD target at COMPASS are presented. The results for charged pions and charged and neutral kaons correspond to all data available, which were collected from 2002 to 2004. For all final state particles both the Collins and Sivers asymmetries turn out to be small, compatible with zero within the statistical errors, in line with the previously published results for not identified charged hadrons, and with the expected cancellation between the u- and d-quark contributions.

Radiative corrections to the neutral current Drell--Yan-like processes are considered. Complete one-loop electroweak corrections are calculated within the SANC system. Theoretical uncertainties are discussed. Read More

One-loop radiative corrections to the leptonic tensor in high energy bremsstrahlung on heavy nuclei are calculated. Virtual and real photon radiation is taken into account. Double bremsstrahlung is simulated by means of Monte Carlo. Read More

The contribution of the sub-process $\gamma q \to q' l_1\bar{l}_2$ in hadron-hadron interactions is considered. It is a part of one-loop electroweak radiative corrections for the Drell-Yan production of lepton pairs at hadron colliders. It is shown that this contribution should be taken into account aiming at the 1% accuracy of the Drell-Yan process theoretical description. Read More

The effect of the collinear photon radiation by charged particles is considered in the second order of the perturbation theory. Double and single photon radiation is evaluated. The corresponding radiation factors are obtained. Read More

A version of the Standard Model is considered, where the electroweak symmetry breaking is provided by cosmological initial data given for the zeroth Fourier harmonic of the Higgs field $<\phi>$. The initial data symmetry breaking mechanism removes the Higgs field contribution to the vacuum energy density, possible creation of monopoles, and tachion behavior at high energies, if one imposes an ``inertial'' condition on the Higgs potential $\textsf{V}_{\rm Higgs}(<\phi>)=0$. The requirement of zero radiative corrections to this {\em inertial} condition coincides with the limiting point of the vacuum stability in the Standard Model. Read More

This Report summarises the activities of the "SM and Higgs" working group for the Workshop "Physics at TeV Colliders", Les Houches, France, 2-20 May, 2005. On the one hand, we performed a variety of experimental and theoretical studies on standard candles (such as W, Z, and ttbar production), treating them either as proper signals of known physics, or as backgrounds to unknown physics; we also addressed issues relevant to those non-perturbative or semi-perturbative ingredients, such as Parton Density Functions and Underlying Events, whose understanding will be crucial for a proper simulation of the actual events taking place in the detectors. On the other hand, several channels for the production of the Higgs, or involving the Higgs, have been considered in some detail. Read More

ZFITTER is a Fortran program for the calculation of fermion pair production and radiative corrections at high energy e+e- colliders; it is also suitable for other applications where electroweak radiative corrections appear. ZFITTER is based on a semi-analytical approach to the calculation of radiative corrections in the Standard Model. We present a summary of new features of the ZFITTER program version 6. Read More

Radiative corrections to the charged current Drell-Yan processes are revisited. Complete one-loop electroweak corrections are calculated within the automatic SANC system. Electroweak scheme dependence and the choice of the factorization scale are discussed. Read More

Recently, various cross sections of e+e- annihilation into hadrons were accurately measured in the energy range from 0.37 to 1.39 GeV with the CMD-2 detector at the VEPP-2M collider. Read More

In this article we have summarized the status of the system SANC version 1.00. We have implemented theoretical predictions for many high energy interactions of fundamental particles at the one-loop precision level for up to 4-particle processes. Read More
