In this paper, new index coding problems are studied, where each receiver has erroneous side information. Although side information is a crucial part of index coding, the existence of erroneous side information has not yet been considered. We study an index code with receivers that have erroneous side information symbols in the error-free broadcast channel, which is called an index code with side information errors (ICSIE). Read More

In this paper, we first propose interference alignment (IA) scheme for uplink transmission of multiple-input-mulitple-output (MIMO) cellular network with a help of relay which operates in halfduplex mode. The proposed scheme only requires global channel state information (CSI) knowledge at relay and no transmitter beamforming and time extension is required at user equipment (UE), which differs from the conventional IA schemes for cellular network. We derive the feasibility condition of the proposed scheme for the general network configuration and analyze the degrees-of-freedom (DoF) performance of the proposed IA scheme. Read More

We study the leading effective interactions between the Standard Model fields and a generic singlet CP-odd (pseudo)Goldstone boson. Two possible frameworks for electroweak symmetry breaking are considered: linear and non-linear. For the latter case, the basis of leading effective operators is determined and compared with that for the linear expansion. Read More

We analyze the prospects for resonant di-Higgs production searches at the LHC in the $b\bar{b} W^+ W^-$ ($W^{+} \to \ell^{+} \nu_{\ell}$, $W^{-} \to \ell^{-} \bar{\nu}_{\ell}$) channel, as a probe of the nature of the electroweak phase transition in Higgs portal extensions of the Standard Model. In order to maximize the sensitivity in this final state, we develop a new algorithm for the reconstruction of the $b \bar{b} W^+ W^-$ invariant mass in the presence of neutrinos from the $W$ decays, building from a technique developed for the reconstruction of resonances decaying to $\tau^{+}\tau^{-}$ pairs. We show that resonant di-Higgs production in the $b\bar{b} W^+ W^-$ channel could be a competitive probe of the electroweak phase transition already with the datasets to be collected by the CMS and ATLAS experiments in Run-2 of the LHC.

A precise measurement of the Higgs $h \to Z \gamma$ decay is very challenging at the LHC, due to the very low %SM $h \to Z \gamma\, (Z \to \ell \ell)$ branching fraction and the shortage of kinematic handles to suppress the large SM $Z \gamma$ background. We show how such a measurement would be significantly improved by considering Higgs production in association with a hard jet. We compare the prospective HL-LHC sensitivity in this channel with other Higgs production modes where $h$ is fairly boosted, e. Read More

We show that simple Two Higgs Doublet models still provide a viable explanation for the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe via electroweak baryogenesis, even after taking into account the recent order-of-magnitude improvement on the electron-EDM experimental bound by the ACME Collaboration. Moreover we show that, in the region of parameter space where baryogenesis is possible, the gravitational wave spectrum generated at the end of the electroweak phase transition is within the sensitivity reach of the future space-based interferometer LISA.

Simplified dark matter models have been recently advocated as a powerful tool to exploit the complementarity between dark matter direct detection, indirect detection and LHC experimental probes. Focusing on pseudoscalar mediators between the dark and visible sectors, we show that the simplified dark matter model phenomenology departs significantly from that of consistent ${SU(2)_{\mathrm{L}} \times U(1)_{\mathrm{Y}}}$ gauge invariant completions. We discuss the key physics simplified models fail to capture, and its impact on LHC searches. Read More

In this paper, degrees of freedom (DoF) is investigated for the $M\times N$ single input single output (SISO) X channel with alternating channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT). It is known that the sum DoF of 2-user SISO X channel with synergistic alternating CSIT is the same as the sum DoF of 2-user $(M=N=2)$ SISO X channel with perfect CSIT [8]. In this paper, such 2-user X channel schemes are extended to the general $M\times N$ X channel. Read More

The existence of a 750 GeV di-photon spin-0 resonance $S$ would imply the additional presence of new particles beyond the Standard Model, coupling directly to $S$ and electromagnetically charged. For an $SU(2)_{\mathrm{L}}$ singlet $S$, we explore the possibility of probing the $SU(2)_{\mathrm{L}}$ and $U(1)_{\mathrm{Y}}$ quantum numbers of the new states at the LHC by measuring/constraining the $WW$, $Z\gamma$ and $ZZ$ decays of $S$. We obtain robust prospects on the required LHC integrated luminosity to discover the new decay modes of $S$, and discuss the implications of these measurements for probing the electroweak nature of the new states. Read More

We study the prospects for probing a gauge singlet scalar-driven strong first order electroweak phase transition with a future proton-proton collider in the 100 TeV range. Singlet-Higgs mixing enables resonantly-enhanced di-Higgs production, potentially aiding discovery prospects. We perform Monte Carlo scans of the parameter space to identify regions associated with a strong first-order electroweak phase transition, analyze the corresponding di-Higgs signal, and select a set of benchmark points that span the range of di-Higgs signal strengths.

We present the activities of the 'New Physics' working group for the 'Physics at TeV Colliders' workshop (Les Houches, France, 1-19 June, 2015). Our report includes new physics studies connected with the Higgs boson and its properties, direct search strategies, reinterpretation of the LHC results in the building of viable models and new computational tool developments. Important signatures for searches for natural new physics at the LHC and new assessments of the interplay between direct dark matter searches and the LHC are also considered. Read More

Higgs portal interactions provide a simple mechanism for addressing two open problems in cosmology: dark matter and the baryon asymmetry. In the latter instance, Higgs portal interactions may contain the ingredients for a strong first order electroweak phase transition as well as new CP-violating interactions as needed for electroweak baryogenesis. These interactions may also allow for a viable dark matter candidate. Read More

Large mass splittings between new scalars in two-Higgs-doublet models (2HDM) open a key avenue to search for these new states via exotic heavy Higgs decays. We discuss in detail the different search channels for these new scalars at the LHC in the presence of a sizable mass splitting, i.e. Read More

LHC data in Run 2 hint at the existence of a resonance with the mass around 750 GeV which decays into 2 photons. Microscopic particle physics models fitting the data invoke new fields beyond the Standard Model which carry electric charge. Regardless of the details of the spectrum and couplings among the extra fields, they have a cumulative effect on the running of the electroweak gauge couplings at high energies. Read More

In this paper, we propose new coupled codes constructed by overlapping circular spatially-coupled low-density parity-check (SC-LDPC) codes, which show better asymptotic and finite-length decoding performance compared to the conventional SC-LDPC codes. The performance improvement comes from the property that the proposed codes effectively split into two separated SC-LDPC codes with shorter chain length during the decoding process. We verify that the property of the proposed codes is valid in asymptotic setting via analysis tools such as the density evolution and the expected graph evolution. Read More

Current discussions of the allowed two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM) parameter space after LHC Run 1 and the prospects for Run 2 are commonly phrased in the context of a quasi-degenerate spectrum for the new scalars. Here we discuss the generic situation of a 2HDM with a non-degenerate spectrum for the new scalars. This is highly motivated from a cosmological perspective since it naturally leads to a strongly first order electroweak phase transition that could explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. Read More

We investigate the potential for the eLISA space-based interferometer to detect the stochastic gravitational wave background produced by strong first-order cosmological phase transitions. We discuss the resulting contributions from bubble collisions, magnetohydrodynamic turbulence, and sound waves to the stochastic background, and estimate the total corresponding signal predicted in gravitational waves. The projected sensitivity of eLISA to cosmological phase transitions is computed in a model-independent way for various detector designs and configurations. Read More

We explore the possibility of explaining the recent $\sim 750$ GeV excesses observed by ATLAS and CMS in the $\gamma\gamma$ spectrum in the context of a compelling theory of Naturalness. The potential spin-zero resonance responsible for the excesses also requires the existence of new heavy charged states. We show that both such features are naturally realized in a see-saw Composite Higgs model for EWSB, where the new pseudo-Goldstone bosons are expected to be comparatively heavier than the SM Higgs, and the new fermions have masses in the TeV range.

We examine the `diboson' excess at $\sim 2$ TeV seen by the LHC experiments in various channels. We provide a comparison of the excess significances as a function of the mass of the tentative resonance and give the signal cross sections needed to explain the excesses. We also present a survey of available theoretical explanations of the resonance, classified in three main approaches. Read More

We discuss how the intensity and the energy frontiers provide complementary constraints within a minimal model of neutrino mass involving just one new field beyond the Standard Model at accessible energy, namely a doubly charged scalar $S^{++}$ and its antiparticle $S^{--}$. In particular we focus on the complementarity between high-energy LHC searches and low-energy probes such as lepton flavor violation. Our setting is a prime example of how high- and low-energy physics can cross-fertilize each other. Read More

A cosmological first order electroweak phase transition could explain the origin of the cosmic matter-antimatter asymmetry. While it does not occur in the Standard Model, it becomes possible in the presence of a second Higgs doublet. In this context, we obtain the properties of the new scalars $H_0$, $A_0$ and $H^{\pm}$ leading to such a phase transition, showing that its key LHC signature would be the decay $A_0 \rightarrow H_0 Z$, and we analyze the promising LHC search prospects for this decay in the $\ell \ell b\bar{b}$ and $\ell \ell W^{+} W^{-}$ final states. Read More

The Higgs portal to scalar Dark Matter is considered in the context of non-linearly realised electroweak symmetry breaking. We determine the dominant interactions of gauge bosons and the physical Higgs particle $h$ to a scalar singlet dark matter candidate. Phenomenological consequences are also studied in detail, including the possibility of distinguishing this scenario from the standard Higgs portal in which the electroweak symmetry breaking is linearly realised. Read More

Mono-$X$ signatures are a powerful collider probe of the nature of dark matter. We show that mono-Higgs and mono-$Z$ may be key signatures of pseudo-scalar portal interactions between dark matter and the SM. We demonstrate this using a simple renormalizable version of the portal, with a Two-Higgs-Doublet-Model as electroweak symmetry breaking sector. Read More

As a metric for amplitude fluctuation of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal, cubic metric (CM) has received an increasing attention because it is more closely related to the distortion induced by nonlinear devices than the well-known peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). In this paper, the properties of CM of OFDM signal is investigated. First, asymptotic distribution of CM is derived. Read More

A cosmological first order electroweak phase transition could explain the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. Such a phase transition does not occur in the Standard Model, while it becomes possible with the existence of a second Higgs doublet in Nature. We obtain the properties of the new scalars $H_0$, $A_0$ and $H^{\pm}$ that lead to such a phase transition, showing that its characteristic signature at LHC would be the observation of the decay $A_0 \rightarrow H_0 Z$. Read More

Precise measurements of SM particles properties at the LHC allows to look for heavy New Physics in the context of an Effective Field Theory (EFT). These searches, however, often rely on kinematic regions where the validity of the EFT may be compromised. In this paper we propose to address this issue by comparing with benchmark models. Read More

We examine the production of dark matter by decaying topological defects in the high mass region $m_{\mathrm{DM}} \gg m_W$ of the Inert Doublet Model, extended with an extra U(1) gauge symmetry. The density of dark matter states (the neutral Higgs states of the inert doublet) is determined by the interplay of the freeze-out mechanism and the additional production of dark matter states from the decays of topological defects, in this case cosmic strings. These decays increase the predicted relic abundance compared to the standard freeze-out only case, and as a consequence the viable parameter space of the Inert Doublet Model can be widened substantially.

We describe a muon track reconstruction algorithm for the reactor anti-neutrino experiment Double Chooz. The Double Chooz detector consists of two optically isolated volumes of liquid scintillator viewed by PMTs, and an Outer Veto above these made of crossed scintillator strips. Muons are reconstructed by their Outer Veto hit positions along with timing information from the other two detector volumes. Read More

The existence of a second Higgs doublet in Nature could lead to a cosmological first order electroweak phase transition and explain the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. We obtain the spectrum and properties of the new scalars $H_0$, $A_0$ and $H^{\pm}$ that signal such a phase transition, and show that the observation of the decay $A_0 \rightarrow H_0 Z$ at LHC would be a `smoking gun' signature of these scenarios. We analyze the LHC search prospects for this decay in the $\ell \ell b\bar{b}$ and $\ell \ell W^{+} W^{-}$ final states, arguing that current data may be sensitive to this signature in the former channel as well as there being great potential for a discovery in either one at the very early stages of the 14 TeV run. Read More

Quantum scale invariance in the UV has been recently advocated as an attractive way of solving the gauge hierarchy problem arising in the Standard Model. We explore the cosmological signatures at the electroweak scale when the breaking of scale invariance originates from a hidden sector and is mediated to the Standard Model by gauge interactions (Gauge Mediation). These scenarios, while being hard to distinguish from the Standard Model at LHC, can give rise to a strong electroweak phase transition leading to the generation of a large stochastic gravitational wave background in possible reach of future space-based detectors such as eLISA and BBO. Read More

We discuss the connection between the origin of neutrino masses and their mixings which arises in a class of scenarios with radiatively induced neutrino masses. In these scenarios, the neutrino mass matrix acquires textures with two entries close to zero in the basis where the charged-lepton mass matrix is diagonal. This results in specific constraints on the neutrino mixing parameters, which leads to the prediction of (i) a normal ordering of neutrino masses with the lightest neutrino mass in the $\sim$ meV range and (ii) testable correlations among the various mixing angles, including a nonzero $\theta_{13}$ angle with its exact value correlated with the values of the atmospheric angle $\theta_{23}$ and the $CP$ phase $\delta$. Read More

We investigate resonant di-Higgs production as a means of probing extended scalar sectors that include a 125 GeV Standard Model-like Higgs boson. For concreteness, we consider a gauge singlet Higgs portal scenario leading to two mixed doublet-singlet states, h_1,2. For m_h_2 > 2 m_h_1, the resonant di-Higgs production process p p -> h_2 -> h_1 h_1 will lead to final states associated with the decaying pair of Standard Model-like Higgs scalars. Read More

Let $p$ be an odd prime such that $p \equiv 3\;{\rm mod}\;4$ and $n$ be an odd integer. In this paper, two new families of $p$-ary sequences of period $N = \frac{p^n-1}{2}$ are constructed by two decimated $p$-ary m-sequences $m(2t)$ and $m(dt)$, where $d = 4$ and $d = (p^n + 1)/2=N+1$. The upper bound on the magnitude of correlation values of two sequences in the family is derived using Weil bound. Read More

The nature of the electroweak phase transition in two-Higgs-doublet models is revisited in light of the recent LHC results. A scan over an extensive region of their parameter space is performed, showing that a strongly first-order phase transition favours a light neutral scalar with SM-like properties, together with a heavy pseudo-scalar (m_A^0 > 400 GeV) and a mass hierarchy in the scalar sector, m_H^+ < m_H^0 < m_A^0. We also investigate the h^0 -> gamma gamma decay channel and find that an enhancement in the branching ratio is allowed, and in some cases even preferred, when a strongly first-order phase transition is required. Read More

A minimal extension of the standard model to naturally generate small neutrino masses and provide a dark matter candidate is proposed. The dark matter particle is part of a new scalar doublet field that plays a crucial role in radiatively generating neutrino masses. The symmetry that stabilizes the dark matter also suppresses neutrino masses to appear first at three-loop level. Read More

Peak power control for multicarrier communications has been a long-lasting problem in signal processing and communications. However, industry and academia are confronted with new challenges regarding energy efficient system design. Particularly, the envisioned boost in network energy efficiency (e. Read More

Particle production at the end of a first-order electroweak phase transition may be rather generic in theories beyond the standard model. Dark matter may then be abundantly produced by this mechanism if it has a sizable coupling to the Higgs field. For an electroweak phase transition occuring at a temperature T_EW ~ 50-100 GeV, non-thermally generated dark matter with mass M_X > TeV will survive thermalization after the phase transition, and could then potentially account for the observed dark matter relic density in scenarios where a thermal dark matter component is either too small or absent. Read More

For a high-rate case, it is difficult to randomly construct good low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes of short and moderate lengths because their Tanner graphs are prone to making short cycles. Also, the existing high-rate quasi-cyclic (QC) LDPC codes can be constructed only for very restricted code parameters. In this paper, a new construction method of high-rate regular QC LDPC codes with parity-check matrices consisting of a single row of circulants with the column-weight 3 or 4 is proposed based on special classes of cyclic difference families. Read More

In this paper, a new low-complexity demodulation scheme is proposed for interleaved orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) downlink system with N subcarriers and M users using circular convolution. In the proposed scheme, each user's signal is extracted from the received interleaved OFDMA signal of M users by using circular convolution in the time domain and then fast Fourier transformed in the reduced size N over M. It is shown that the computational complexity of the proposed scheme for the interleaved OFDMA downlink system is much less than that of the conventional one. Read More

Selected mapping (SLM) is a suitable scheme, which can solve the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) problem. Recently, many researchers have concentrated on reducing the computational complexity of the SLM schemes. One of the low complexity SLM schemes is the Class III SLM scheme which uses only one inverse fast fourier transform (IFFT) operation for generating one orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal sequence. Read More

There have been lots of efforts on the construction of quasi-cyclic (QC) low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with large girth. However, most of them are focused on protographs with single edges and little research has been done for the construction of QC LDPC codes lifted from protographs with multiple edges. Compared to single-edge protographs, multiple-edge protographs have benefits such that QC LDPC codes lifted from them can potentially have larger minimum Hamming distance. Read More

There are many selected mapping (SLM) schemes to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals. Beginning with the conventional SLM scheme, there have been proposed many low-complexity SLM schemes including Lim's, Wang's, and Baxely's SLM schemes typically. In this paper, we propose an adaptive generation (AG) method of OFDM signals in SLM schemes. Read More

In this paper, for an odd prime $p$, the differential spectrum of the power function $x^{\frac{p^k+1}{2}}$ in $\mathbb{F}_{p^n}$ is calculated. For an odd prime $p$ such that $p\equiv 3\bmod 4$ and odd $n$ with $k|n$, the differential spectrum of the power function $x^{\frac{p^n+1}{p^k+1}+\frac{p^n-1}{2}}$ in $\mathbb{F}_{p^n}$ is also derived. From their differential spectrums, the differential uniformities of these two power functions are determined. Read More

In this paper, for an odd prime $p$ such that $p\equiv 3\bmod 4$, odd $n$, and $d=(p^n+1)/(p^k+1)+(p^n-1)/2$ with $k|n$, the value distribution of the exponential sum $S(a,b)$ is calculated as $a$ and $b$ run through $\mathbb{F}_{p^n}$. The sequence family $\mathcal{G}$ in which each sequence has the period of $N=p^n-1$ is also constructed. The family size of $\mathcal{G}$ is $p^n$ and the correlation magnitude is roughly upper bounded by $(p^k+1)\sqrt{N}/2$. Read More

In this paper, a new peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction scheme for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is proposed based on the selected mapping (SLM) scheme. The proposed SLM scheme generates alternative OFDM signal sequences by cyclically shifting the connections in each subblock at an intermediate stage of inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT). Compared with the conventional SLM scheme, the proposed SLM scheme achieves similar PAPR reduction performance with much lower computational complexity and no bit error rate (BER) degradation.

In this paper, a new decoding scheme for low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes using the concept of simple product code structure is proposed based on combining two independently received soft-decision data for the same codeword. LDPC codes act as horizontal codes of the product codes and simple algebraic codes are used as vertical codes to help decoding of the LDPC codes. The decoding capability of the proposed decoding scheme is defined and analyzed using the paritycheck matrices of vertical codes and especially the combined-decodability is derived for the case of single parity-check (SPC) and Hamming codes being used as vertical codes.

Standard electroweak baryogenesis in the context of a first order phase transition is effective in generating the baryon asymmetry of the universe if the broken phase bubbles expand at subsonic speed, so that CP asymmetric currents can diffuse in front of the wall. Here we present a new mechanism for electroweak baryogenesis which operates for supersonic bubble walls. It relies on the formation of small bubbles of the symmetric phase behind the bubble wall, in the broken phase, due to the heating of the plasma as the wall passes by. Read More
