The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a multi-TeV high-luminosity linear e+e- collider under development. For an optimal exploitation of its physics potential, CLIC is foreseen to be built and operated in a staged approach with three centre-of-mass energy stages ranging from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV. The first stage will focus on precision Standard Model physics, in particular Higgs and top-quark measurements. Read More

The gauge coupling unification can be achieved at a unification scale around 5 x 10^{13} GeV if the Standard Model scalar sector is extended with extra Higgs-like doublets. The relevant new scalar degrees of freedom in the form of chiral Z* and W* vector bosons might "be visible" already at about 700 GeV. Their eventual preferred coupling to the heavy quarks explains the non observation of these bosons in the first LHC run and provides promising expectation for the second LHC run. Read More

The dilepton final states, e+e- and mu+mu-, are the most clear channels for new heavy neutral resonances search. Their advantage is that the main irreducible background from the Standard Model Drell-Yan process contributes usually two orders of magnitude lower than the expected signal under the peak region. In this paper we are focused on the search of the excited neutral bosons Z*. Read More

We consider the generation of sound waves in the air medium between electrodes at the voltages near electrical breakdown in the presence of the time dependent constituent of the electric field. Within the standard multicomponent hydrodynamic model of the weakly ionized gas it is shown that the generation of sound is possible due to instantaneous character of the ionization equilibrium. The influence of the electronegative ions on the sound intensity is also discussed. Read More

It was recently proposed to extend the Standard Model by means of new spin-1 chiral $Z^*$ and $W^{*\pm}$ bosons with the internal quantum numbers of the electroweak Higgs doublets. These bosons have unique signatures in transverse momentum, angular and pseudorapidity distributions of the final leptons, which allow one to distinguish them from other heavy resonances. With 40 pb$^{-1}$ of the LHC proton-proton data at the energy 7 TeV, the ATLAS detector was used to search for narrow resonances in the invariant mass spectrum of $e^+e^-$ and $\mu^+\mu^-$ final states and high-mass charged states decaying to a charged lepton and a neutrino.

In this review phenomenological consequences of the Standard Model extension by means of new spin-1 chiral fields with the internal quantum numbers of the electroweak Higgs doublets are summarized. The prospects for resonance production and detection of the chiral vector $Z^*$ and $W^{*\pm}$ bosons at the LHC energies are considered. The $Z^*$ boson can be observed as a Breit-Wigner resonance peak in the invariant dilepton mass distributions in the same way as the well-known extra gauge $Z'$ bosons. Read More

The main distribution for a bump search is the dilepton invariant mass distribution with appropriated cut on an absolute value of pseudorapidity difference Delta_eta = |eta_1 - eta_2| between the two leptons. The background from the Standard Model Drell-Yan process contributes mainly to the central pseudorapidity region Delta_eta = 0. By contrast, the excited bosons lead to a peak at Delta_eta = 1. Read More

New strategy for resonance search in dijet events at the LHC is discussed. The main distribution used for a bump search is the dijet invariant mass distribution with appropriated cuts. The crucial cut, which is applied to maximize signal significance, is on (pseudo)rapidity difference between the two jets. Read More

With this note we would like to draw attention to a possible novel signal of new physics in dijet data at the hadron colliders. Usually it is accepted that all exotic models predict that these two jets populate the central (pseudo)rapidity region where y_{1,2} ~ 0. Contrary, the excited bosons do not contribute into this region, but produce an excess of dijet events over the almost flat QCD background in chi = exp|y_1-y_2| away from this region. Read More

A simple reference model for anomalously interacting bosons is proposed and implemented in the CompHEP package. This allows preparing for an experimental search of these bosons at powerful colliders, such as Tevatron and LHC. New signatures and some experimental consequences are shortly considered. Read More

We study phenomenological consequences of the Standard Model extension by the new spin-1 chiral fields with the internal quantum numbers of the electroweak Higgs doublets. There are at least three different classes of theories, all motivated by the hierarchy problem, which predict new vector weak-doublets with masses not far from the electro-weak scale. We discuss resonance production of these neutral chiral Z* bosons at hadron colliders. Read More

We study phenomenological consequences of the Standard Model extension by the new spin-1 fields with the internal quantum numbers of the electroweak Higgs doublets. We show, that there are at least three different classes of theories, all motivated by the hierarchy problem, which predict appearance of such vector weak-doublets not far from the weak scale. The common feature for all the models is the existence of an SU(3) gauge extension of the weak SU(2) group, which is broken down to the latter at some energy scale around TeV. Read More

The status of the chiral tensor particles in the extended electroweak model, their experimental constraints, signatures and the possibilities for their detection at the new colliders are reviewed. The characteristic interactions of the chiral tensor particles in the early Universe plasma and the corresponding period of their cosmological influence is determined. The dynamical cosmological effect, namely the speeding of the Friedmann expansion due to the density increase caused by the introduction of the new particles, is evaluated. Read More

The resonance production of new chiral spin-1 excited bosons, Z*, and their detection through the Drell-Yan process in the first physical runs at the CERN LHC are considered. The new neutral chiral bosons can be observed as a Breit-Wigner resonance peaks in the invariant dilepton mass distribution in the same way as the well-known hypothetical gauge bosons, Z'. However, unique new signatures of the chiral bosons exist. Read More

At present it is generally believed that ``new physics'' effects contribute to leptonic anomalous magnetic moment, a_l, via quantum loops only and they are proportional to the squared lepton mass, (m_l)^2. An alternative mechanism for a contribution by new physics is proposed. It occurs at the tree level and exhibits a linear rather than quadratic dependence on m_l. Read More

The resonance production of new chiral spin-1 bosons and their detection through the Drell--Yan process at the CERN LHC is considered. Quantitative evaluations of various differential cross-sections of the chiral bosons production are made within the CalcHEP package. The new neutral chiral bosons can be observed as a Breit--Wigner resonance peak in the invariant dilepton mass distribution, as usual. Read More

It is known that the discrepancy in pion spectral functions extracted from positron-electron annihilation and tau decay leads to different predictions for the muon anomalous magnetic moment. We will show that this discrepancy effects also the extraction of the Cabibbo angle from the hadronic tau decays. The corrections to the tau branching fractions, corresponding to the presence of new centi-weak tensor interactions, allow us to extract the Cabibbo angle from tau decays in agreement with its other precision determinations. Read More

Direct constraints on the masses of new heavy bosons by the Tevatron data are discussed. Some excesses in the experimental data are interpreted as a resonance production of new charged and `leptophobic' neutral chiral bosons with masses around 500 GeV and 700 GeV, respectively. The interpretation was provided on the basis of the theoretical model, proposed by the author about 15 years ago. Read More

The production of new spin-1 chiral bosons at the hadron colliders, the Fermilab Tevatron and the CERN LHC, is considered. The masses of the chiral bosons can be determined on the basis of experimental data of precise low-energy experiments, which already indicate indirectly their existence. They can explain, for example, the serious 4. Read More

The possibility of production of new spin-1 chiral particles at the hadron colliders the Tevatron and the LHC is considered. Their coupling constants to ordinary fermions can be fixed using the hypothesis about a dynamical generation of kinetic terms for the bosons and assuming an universality of interactions of these particles. The masses of the chiral particles can be predicted from experimental data of precise low-energy experiments, which already indicate indirectly the existence of such new particles. Read More

The pion beta decay pi^+ -> pi^0 e^+ nu proceeds through pure weak vector hadronic currents and, therefore, the theoretical prediction for it is more reliable than for the processes with axial-vector current contribution. For example, recently the pion beta decay has been used for V_ud determination. The main aim of this letter is to point that kaon beta decay K^0 -> K^+(pi^+ pi^0) e^- nu-bar analogously can be used for this purpose. Read More

We have found in [1] new conditions for a total neutrino conversion in the case of neutrino oscillations taking place in a medium, consisting of n = 2 (or 3) alternating layers with constant densities $N_1$ and $N_2$. It is claimed in [4] that our results are particular case of enhancement of neutrino oscillations, which was suggested earlier by other authors and was widely discussed in the literature. We refute these claims, confirming the novelty of our results. Read More

The recent results of the PIBETA experiment strongly suggest the presence of a non-(V-A) anomalous interaction in the radiative pion decay. The same interaction should inevitably contribute to the neutron decay and in particular it should affect the V_ud determination. This paper is dedicated to the prediction of the eventual discrepancy in V_ud extracted from the super-allowed Fermi transitions and from the polarized neutron decay. Read More

The pure lepton decay of the polarized muon is considered, accounting for a new tensor interaction which is outside of the Michel local interactions. This interaction leads to new energy distribution and polarization of the final charged lepton. The presence of such a type of interaction is strongly required for the description of the latest experimental results on the weak radiative pion decay in the full kinematic region. Read More

Recently a strong indication for a deviation from the standard model (SM) has been obtained by PIBETA Collaboration. Namely, SM fails to describe the energy distribution and the branching ratio of the radiative decays of the positive pions at rest in the high-E_gamma/low-E_e kinematic region. The previous experiment at ISTRA facility, testing the radiative decays of negative pions in flight in a wide kinematic region has alarmed about the same effect, although statistically less significant. Read More

The inserting of antisymmetric tensor fields into the standard electroweak theory may explain the recent experiments on pi -> e nu gamma and K -> pi e nu decays. New intermediate particles can induce the destructive interference in the pion decay and the nonzero tensor and scalar form factors in the kaon decay. Read More

The preliminary results of PIBETA experiment strongly suggest the presence of non V-A anomalous interactions in the radiative pion decay. We assume that they arise as a result of the exchange of new intermediate chiral spin-1 bosons which interact anomalously with matter. Their contribution into the tau-decay leads to violation of the CVC hypothesis at the same level as detected experimentally. Read More

The preliminary results of PIBETA experiment strongly suggest the presence of non V-A anomalous interactions in the radiative pion decay. Without a guiding idea about the nature of these new interactions it is very difficult to interpret and fit experimental data. We assume that they arise as a result of the exchange of new intermediate chiral bosons which interact anomalously with matter. Read More

A simple explanation of the dynamic properties of vector mesons is given in the framework of extended Nambu - Jona-Lasinio quark model. New mass relations among the hadron vector resonances are derived. The results of this approach are in good accordance with the QCD sum rules, the lattice calculations and the experimental data. Read More

We present a review of cosmological nucleosynthesis (CN) with neutrino oscillations, discussing the different effects of oscillations on CN, namely: increase of the effective degrees of freedom during CN, spectrum distortion of the oscillating neutrinos, neutrino number density depletion, and growth of neutrino-antineutrino asymmetry due to active-sterile oscillations. We discuss the importance of these effects for the primordial yield of helium-4. Primordially produced He-4 value is obtained in a selfconsistent study of the nucleons and the oscillating neutrinos. Read More

We study opportunities for future high-precision experiments in kaon physics using a high-intensity proton driver, which could be part of the front-end of a muon storage ring complex. We discuss in particular the rare decays $K_L\to\pi^0\nu\bar\nu$, $K^+\to\pi^+\nu\bar\nu$, $K_L\to\pi^0e^+e^-$, and lepton-flavour violating modes such as $K_L\to\mu e$ and $K\to\pi\mu e$. The outstanding physics potential and long-term interest of these modes is emphasized. Read More

We show that the hadron vector resonances are described by fields transforming according to different inequivalent representations of the Lorentz group: (1/2,1/2) and (1,0)+(0,1). The vector representation (1/2,1/2) is well studied and corresponds to the gauge fields. On the other hand, the chiral representations (1,0) and (0,1) are described by the second rank antisymmetric tensor fields, for which interaction theory has not yet been constructed. Read More

We discuss the oscillations effects on neutrinos in the early Universe and update the cosmological constraints on the oscillation parameters. It is shown that sterile LOW solution to the solar neutrino problem is almost completely excluded from cosmological nucleosynthesis considerations. Two possibilities for the relaxation of this constraint are discussed: high primordial helium-4 yield and a relic lepton asymmetry present at nucleosynthesis epoch. Read More

We analyze the effects of lepton asymmetry on neutrino oscillations and on cosmological nucleosynthesis with active-sterile oscillating neutrinos. It is shown that small lepton asymmetries, L < 0.01, whose direct kinetic effect on nucleosynthesis is negligible, still effect nucleosynthesis considerably through their influence on oscillating neutrinos. Read More

We discuss rare kaon decays that violate charged-lepton flavour conservation in supersymmetric theories with and without R parity, in view of possible experiments using an intense proton source as envisaged for a neutrino factory. In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, such decays are generated by box diagrams involving charginos and neutralinos, but the limits from \mu -> e \gamma, \mu-e conversion and \Delta m_K constrain the branching ratios to challengingly small values. However, this is no longer the case in R-violating theories, where such decays may occur at tree level at rates close to the present experimental limits. Read More

All known elementary vector particles, the photon, Z, W and the gluons, are described by the gauge theory. They belong to the real representation (1/2,1/2) of the Lorentz group. On the other hand inequivalent representations (1,0) and (0,1) also correspond to particles with spin 1. Read More

We show that the arguments forming the basis for the claim that the conditions for total neutrino conversion derived and studied in detail in [1,2] ``are just the conditions of the parametric resonance of neutrino oscillations supplemented by the requirement that the parametric enhancement be complete'', given in [4] have flaws which make the claim physically questionable. We show also that in the case of the transitions in the Earth of the Earth-core-crossing solar and atmospheric neutrinos the peaks in the relevant transitions probabilities $P_{a b}$, associated with the new conditions, $max P_{a b} = 1$, are of physical relevance - in contrast to what is suggested in [4]. Actually, the enhancement of $P_{a b}$ in any region of the corresponding parameter space are essentially determined by these absolute maxima of $P_{a b}$. Read More

The neutrino oscillation enhancement in the Earth-type medium mantle - core - mantle is discussed. It is noted that the total conversion is possible both for a resonant matter density and a nonresonant one. A useful parameterization, for the representation of the transition probability for neutrinos and antineutrinos in a single plot, is proposed. Read More

We have provided a numerical study of the influence of the resonant active-sterile neutrino oscillations between electron and sterile neutrinos, on the primordial production of helium-4. The evolution of the neutrino ensembles was followed selfconsistently with the evolution of the nucleons, using exact kinetic equations for the neutrino density matrix and the nucleon number densities in momentum space, from the time of neutrino decoupling till the freeze-out of nucleons at 0.3 MeV. Read More

In this article we discuss lepton asymmetry effect on BBN with neutrino oscillations. We argue that asymmetry much smaller than 0.01, although not big enough to influence directly the nucleosynthesis kinetics, can effect considerably BBN indirectly via neutrino oscillations. Read More

We discuss a mechanism for producing baryon density perturbations during inflationary stage and study the evolution of the baryon charge density distribution in the framework of the low temperature baryogenesis scenario. This mechanism may be important for the large scale structure formation of the Universe and particularly, may be essential for understanding the existence of a characteristic scale of 130h^{-1} Mpc (comoving size) in the distribution of the visible matter. The detailed analysis showed that both the observed very large scale of the visible matter distribution in the Universe and the observed baryon asymmetry value could naturally appear as a result of the evolution of a complex scalar field condensate, formed at the inflationary stage.

The extrema of the probabilities of the transitions $\nu_{\mu} (\nu_e) \to \nu_e (\nu_{\mu;\tau})$, $\nu_{2} \to \nu_e$, etc. of neutrinos passing through a medium consisting of i) two layers of different constant densities or ii) three layers of constant density, of which the first and the third are identical but differ in density from the second (e.g. Read More

A new effect of total neutrino conversion is possible when neutrino propagates through multi-layer medium of nonperiodic constant density layers. The effect can take place in the oscillations in the Earth of the Earth-core-crossing solar and atmospheric neutrinos. Read More

Assuming two-neutrino mixing takes place in vacuum, we study in detail the conditions under which the $\nu_2 \to \nu_{e}$ and $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_{e}$ ($\nu_e \to \nu_{\mu(\tau)}$) transitions in the Earth are strongly enhanced by the neutrino oscillation length resonance when the neutrinos cross the Earth core. We show, in particular, that the neutrino oscillation length resonance is operative also in the $\bar{\nu}_{\mu} \to \bar{\nu}_{s}$ transitions at small mixing angles. The properties of the $\nu_2 \to \nu_{e}$ and $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_{e}$ ($\nu_e \to \nu_{\mu(\tau)}$) transition probabilities in the corresponding resonance regions are examined. Read More

In this work we present the results of our numerical analysis of the effect of lepton asymmetries L on neutrino oscillations and consequently on helium production in a model of cosmological nucleosynthesis with active-sterile neutrino oscillations. We performed detail calculations of the neutron-proton ratio till its freezing and the subsequent synthesis of helium-4 for a wide range of values of the initial lepton asymmetry 10^{-4}-10^{-10} and for the complete set of mixing parameters of the oscillation model described in hep-ph/9707282: \delta m^2 \le 10^{-7} eV^2 and any \vartheta. We have found that there are significant modifications of neutrino number densities and energy distributions over a large range of values of the initial asymmetry. Read More

We study the nonresonant oscillations between left-handed electron neutrinos nu_e and nonthermalized sterile neutrinos nu_s in the early Universe plasma. The case when nu_s do not thermalize till 2 MeV and the oscillations become effective after nu_e decoupling is discussed. The evolution of neutrino ensembles was described numerically by integrating the kinetic equations for the neutrino density matrix in momentum space. Read More

The anomalous value of the tensor form factor in the kaon decay K -> pi e nu and the destructive interference in pion decay pi -> e nu gamma can be simultaneously described by admixture of a tensor interaction in the standard V-A one. It is shown that the same tensor interaction can describe recent HERA data at very large Q^2. Read More

We studied nonequilibrium oscillations between left-handed electron neutrinos and nonthermalized sterile neutrinos. The exact kinetic equations for neutrinos, written in terms of neutrino density matrix in momentum space were analyzed. The evolution of neutrino density matrix was numerically calculated. Read More

Predictions for the muon decay spectrum are usually derived from the derivative-free Hamiltonian. However, it is not the most general form of the possible interactions. Additional simple terms with derivatives can be introduced. Read More

It is shown that in the one-flavour NJL model the vector and axial-vector quasiparticles described by the antisymmetric tensor field are generated. These excitations have tensor interactions with quarks in contrast to usual vector ones. Phenomenological applications are discussed. Read More
