We classify three dimensional evolution algebras over a field having characteristic different from 2 and in which there are roots of orders 2, 3 and 7. Read More

We associate to a real projective variety $X$ two convex cones which are fundamental in real algebraic geometry: the cone $P_X$ of quadratic forms nonnegative on $X$, and the cone $\Sigma_X$ of sums of squares of linear forms. The dual cone $\Sigma_X^\ast$ is a spectrahedron and we show that its convexity properties are closely related to homological properties of $X$. For instance, we show that all extreme rays of $\Sigma_X^\ast$ have rank one if and only if X has Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity two. Read More

We develop an operator-theoretical method for the analysis on well posedness of partial differential equations that can be modeled in the form \begin{equation*} \left\{ \begin{array}{rll} \Delta^{\alpha} u(n) &= Au(n+2) + f(n,u(n)), \quad n \in \mathbb{N}_0, \,\, 1< \alpha \leq 2; u(0) &= u_0; u(1) &= u_1, \end{array} \right. \end{equation*} where $A$ is an closed linear operator defined on a Banach space $X$. Our ideas are inspired on the Poisson distribution as a tool to sampling fractional differential operators into fractional differences. Read More

Given a real projective curve with homogeneous coordinate ring R and a nonnegative homogeneous element f in R, we bound the degree of a nonzero homogeneous sum-of-squares g in R such that the product fg is again a sum of squares. Better yet, our degree bounds only depend on geometric invariants of the curve and we show that there exists smooth curves and nonnegative elements for which our bounds are sharp. We deduce the existence of a multiplier g from a new Bertini Theorem in convex algebraic geometry and prove sharpness by deforming rational Harnack curves on toric surfaces. Read More

Compressed sensing is a technique for recovering an unknown sparse signal from a small number of linear measurements. When the measurement matrix is random, the number of measurements required for perfect recovery exhibits a phase transition: there is a threshold on the number of measurements after which the probability of exact recovery quickly goes from very small to very large. In this work we are able to reduce this threshold by incorporating statistical information about the data we wish to recover. Read More

A novel hadron calorimeter is being developed for future lepton colliding beam detectors. The calorimeter is optimized for the application of Particle Flow Algorithms (PFAs) to the measurement of hadronic jets and features a very finely segmented readout with 1 x 1 cm2 cells. The active media of the calorimeter are Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) with a digital, i. Read More

The NA48/2 Collaboration at CERN has accumulated unprecedented statistics of rare kaon decays in the Ke4 modes: Ke4(+-) ($K^\pm \to \pi^+ \pi^- e^\pm \nu$) and Ke4(00) ($K^\pm \to \pi^0 \pi^0 e^\pm \nu$) with nearly one percent background contamination. The detailed study of form factors and branching rates, based on these data, has been completed recently. The results brings new inputs to low energy strong interactions description and tests of Chiral Perturbation Theory (ChPT) and lattice QCD calculations. Read More

We study evolution algebras of arbitrary dimension. We analyze in deep the notions of evolution subalgebras, ideals and non-degeneracy and describe the ideals generated by one element and characterize the simple evolution algebras. We also prove the existence and unicity of a direct sum decomposition into irreducible components for every non-degenerate evolution algebra. Read More

The excess of cosmic-ray positrons in the energy range from 10 GeV to few hundred GeV reported by PAMELA and AMS experiments is not consistent with a pure secondary origin and requires the introduction of a source term. The presence of anisotropies in the positron arrival directions would be a distinctive signature of their origin. Current measurements are consistent with isotropy and limits to a dipole anisotropy have been established. Read More

We prove that the determinantal complexity of a hypersurface of degree $d > 2$ is bounded below by one more than the codimension of the singular locus, provided that this codimension is at least $5$. As a result, we obtain that the determinantal complexity of the $3 \times 3$ permanent is $7$. We also prove that for $n> 3$, there is no nonsingular hypersurface in $\mathbf{P}^n$ of degree $d$ that has an expression as a determinant of a $d \times d$ matrix of linear forms while on the other hand for $n \le 3$, a general determinantal expression is nonsingular.

Let $X$ be a complex Banach space. The connection between algebra homomorphisms defined on subalgebras of the Banach algebra $\ell^{1}(\mathbb{N}_0)$ and the algebraic structure of Ces\`{a}ro sums of a linear operator $T\in \mathcal{B}(X)$ is established. In particular, we show that every $(C, \alpha)$-bounded operator $T$ induces - and is in fact characterized - by such an algebra homomorphism. Read More

A set $S\subset \mathbb{R}^n$ is a nonnegativity witness for a set $U$ of real homogeneous polynomials if $F$ in $U$ is nonnegative on $\mathbb{R}^n$ if and only if it is nonnegative at all points of $S$. We prove that the union of the hyperplanes perpendicular to the elements of a root system $\Phi\subseteq \mathbb{R}^n$ is a witness set for nonnegativity of forms of low degree which are invariant under the reflection group defined by $\Phi$. We prove that our bound for the degree is sharp for all reflection groups which contain multiplication by $-1$. Read More

A joint measurement is presented of the branching fractions $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ and $B^0\to\mu^+\mu^-$ in proton-proton collisions at the LHC by the CMS and LHCb experiments. The data samples were collected in 2011 at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, and in 2012 at 8 TeV. The combined analysis produces the first observation of the $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ decay, with a statistical significance exceeding six standard deviations, and the best measurement of its branching fraction so far.

The NA48/2 Collaboration at CERN has accumulated and analysed unprecedented statistics of rare kaon decays in the $K_{e4}$ modes: $K_{e4}(+-)$ ($K^\pm \to \pi^+ \pi^- e^\pm \nu$) and $K_{e4}(00)$ ($K^\pm \to \pi^0 \pi^0 e^\pm \nu$) with nearly one percent background contamination. It leads to the improved measurement of branching fractions and detailed form factor studies. New final results from the analysis of 381 $K^\pm \to \pi^\pm \gamma \gamma$ rare decay candidates collected by the NA48/2 and NA62 experiments at CERN are presented. Read More

Let $X\subseteq \mathbb{P}^m$ be a totally real, non-degenerate, projective variety and let $\Gamma\subseteq X(\mathbb{R})$ be a generic set of points. Let $P$ be the cone of nonnegative quadratic forms on $X$ and let $\Sigma$ be the cone of sums of squares of linear forms. We examine the dimensions of the faces $P(\Gamma)$ and $\Sigma(\Gamma)$ consisting of forms in $P$ and $\Sigma$, which vanish on $\Gamma$. Read More

We define a statistical measure of the typical size of short words in a linear code over a finite field. We prove that the dual toric codes coming from polytopes of degree one are characterized, among all dual toric codes, by being extremal with respect to this measure. We also give a geometric interpretation of the minimum distance of dual toric codes and characterize its extremal values. Read More

A symmetry $SU(2,2)$ group in terms of ladder operators is presented for the Jacobi polynomials, $J_{n}^{(\alpha,\beta)}(x)$, and the Wigner $d_j$-matrices where the spins $j=n+(\alpha+\beta)/2$ integer and half-integer are considered together. A unitary irreducible representation of $SU(2,2)$ is constructed and subgroups of physical interest are discussed. The Universal Enveloping Algebra of $su(2,2)$ also allows to construct group structures $(SU(1,1), SO(3,2), Spin(3,2))$ whose representations separate integers and half-integers values of the spin $j$.

This report summarizes the work of the Energy Frontier Higgs Boson working group of the 2013 Community Summer Study (Snowmass). We identify the key elements of a precision Higgs physics program and document the physics potential of future experimental facilities as elucidated during the Snowmass study. We study Higgs couplings to gauge boson and fermion pairs, double Higgs production for the Higgs self-coupling, its quantum numbers and $CP$-mixing in Higgs couplings, the Higgs mass and total width, and prospects for direct searches for additional Higgs bosons in extensions of the Standard Model.

Let X be a real nondegenerate projective subvariety such that its set of real points is Zariski dense. We prove that every real quadratic form that is nonnegative on X is a sum of squares of linear forms if and only if X is a variety of minimal degree. This substantially extends Hilbert's celebrated characterization of equality between nonnegative forms and sums of squares. Read More

A ladder structure of operators is presented for the Jacobi polynomials, J_n^(a,b)(x), with parameters n, a and b integers, showing that they are related to the unitary irreducible representation of SU(2,2) with quadratic Casimir C_SU(2,2)=-3/2. As they determine also a base of square-integrable functions, the universal enveloping algebra of su(2,2) is homomorphic to the space of linear operators acting on the L^2 functions defined on (-1,+1) x Z x Z/2.

In this paper we discuss decays of the Higgs boson to quarkonia in association with a photon. We identify a new mechanism for producing such final states in Higgs decays that leads to predictions for the decay rates that differ by an order of magnitude from previous estimates. Although the branching ratios for these processes are still small, the processes are experimentally clean, and the H \to J/\psi+gamma decay should be observable at a 14 TeV LHC. Read More

This paper proposes a Higgs factory located in the Tevatron tunnel. It is based on a photon collider by using a recirculating e- linac and fiber laser technology. The design goal is 10,000 Higgs per year. Read More

DNA is the most important biological molecule, and its hydration contributes essentially to the structure and functions of the double helix. We analyze the microhydration of the individual bases of nucleic acids and their methyl derivatives using methods of molecular mechanics (MM) with the Poltev-Malenkov (PM), AMBER and OPLS force fields, as well as ab initio Quantum Mechanics (QM) calculations at MP2/6-31G(d,p) level of theory. A comparison is made between the calculated interaction energies and the experimental enthalpies of microhydration of bases, obtained from mass spectrometry at low temperatures. Read More


From the 2002 data taking with a neutral kaon beam extracted from the CERN-SPS, the NA48/1 experiment observed 97 $\Xi^{0}\rightarrow \Sigma^{+} \mu^{-} \bar{\nu}_{\mu}$ candidates with a background contamination of $30.8 \pm 4.2$ events. Read More

A new particle with mass ~ 125 GeV that resembles the Higgs boson has recently been discovered by ATLAS and CMS. We propose a low-energy gamma-gamma collider as a cost- and time-efficient option for a Higgs factory capable of studying this particle in detail. In the past, this option has been suggested as a possible application of the CLIC two-beam accelerator technology (the CLIC Higgs Experiment, CLICHE) or as an option for the ILC. Read More

A strong candidate for the Standard Model Scalar boson, H(126), has been discovered by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments. In order to study this fundamental particle with unprecedented precision, and to perform precision tests of the closure of the Standard Model, we investigate the possibilities offered by An e+e- storage ring collider. We use a design inspired by the B-factories, taking into account the performance achieved at LEP2, and imposing a synchrotron radiation power limit of 100 MW. Read More

The maximum cut problem for a quintic del Pezzo surface ${\rm Bl}_{4}(\mathbb{P}^2)$ asks: Among all partitions of the 10 exceptional curves into two disjoint sets, what is the largest possible number of pairwise intersections? In this article we show that the answer is twelve. More generally, we obtain bounds for the maximum cut problem for the minuscule varieties $X_{a,b,c}:={\rm Bl}_{b+c}(\mathbb{P}^{c-1})^{a-1}$ studied by Mukai and Castravet-Tevelev and show that these bounds are asymptotically sharp for infinite families. We prove our results by constructing embeddings of the classes of $(-1)$-divisors on these varieties which are optimal for the semidefinite relaxation of the maximum cut problem on graphs proposed by Goemans and Williamson.

We prove that linearizing certain families of polynomial optimization problems leads to new functorial operations in real convex sets. We show that under some conditions these operations can be computed or approximated in ways amenable to efficient computation. These operations are convex analogues of Hom functors, tensor products, symmetric powers, exterior powers and general Schur functors on vector spaces and lead to novel constructions even for polyhedra.

Weighted cup-length calculations in singular cohomology led Farber and Grant in 2008 to general lower bounds for the topological complexity of lens spaces. We replace singular cohomology by K-theory, and weighted cup-length arguments by considerations with biequivariant maps on spheres to improve on Farber-Grant's bounds by arbitrarily large amounts. Our calculations are based on the identification of key elements conjectured to generate the annihilator ideal of the toral bottom class in the ku-homology of the classifying space of a rank-2 abelian 2-group.

As first observed by the NA48/2 experiment at the CERN SPS, the $\p0p0$ invariant mass (M00) distribution from $\kcnn$ decay shows a cusp-like anomaly at M00=2m+, where m+ is the charged pion mass. An analysis to extract the pi pi scattering lengths in the isospin I=0 and I=2 states, a0 and a2, respectively, has been recently reported. In the present work the Dalitz plot of this decay is fitted to a new empirical parameterization suitable for practical purposes, such as Monte Carlo simulations of K+- -> pi+- pi0 pi0 decays.

Work of Dolgachev and Castravet-Tevelev establishes a bijection between the $2^{n-1}$ weights of the half-spin representations of $\mathfrak{so}_{2n}$ and the generators of the Cox ring of the variety $X_n$ which is obtained by blowing up $\mathbb{P}^{n-3}$ at $n$ points. We derive a geometric explanation for this bijection, by embedding ${\rm Cox}(X_n)$ into the even spinor variety (the homogeneous space of the even half-spin representation). The Cox ring of the blow-up $X_n$ is recovered geometrically by intersecting torus translates of the even spinor variety. Read More

We prove that the Cox ring of a smooth rational surface with big anticanonical class is finitely generated. We classify surfaces of this type that are blow-ups of the plane at distinct points lying on a (possibly reducible) cubic. Read More

We consider the question of which zero-dimensional schemes deform to a collection of distinct points; equivalently, we ask which Artinian k-algebras deform to a product of fields. We introduce a syzygetic invariant which sheds light on this question for zero-dimensional schemes of regularity two. This invariant imposes obstructions for smoothability in general, and it completely answers the question of smoothability for certain zero-dimensional schemes of low degree. Read More

We survey the construction of the Cox ring of an algebraic variety X and study the birational geometry of X when its Cox ring is finitely generated. Read More

The Hilbert scheme H^d_n of n points in A^d contains an irreducible component R^d_n which generically represents n distinct points in A^d. We show that when n is at most 8, the Hilbert scheme H^d_n is reducible if and only if n = 8 and d >= 4. In the simplest case of reducibility, the component R^4_8 \subset H^4_8 is defined by a single explicit equation which serves as a criterion for deciding whether a given ideal is a limit of distinct points.

Let X be a del Pezzo surface of degree one over an algebraically closed field (of any characteristic), and let Cox(X) be its total coordinate ring. We prove the missing case of a conjecture of Batyrev and Popov, which states that Cox(X) is a quadratic algebra. We use a complex of vector spaces whose homology determines part of the structure of the minimal free Pic(X)-graded resolution of Cox(X) over a polynomial ring. Read More

Let X be a smooth projective variety with torsion-free Picard group. We introduce complexes of vector spaces whose homology determines the structure of the minimal free resolution of the Cox ring of X over the polynomial ring and show how the homology of these complexes can be studied by purely geometric methods. As an application of these techniques we give a simple new proof of a characterization of the Cox rings of Del Pezzo surfaces (of degree >1) conjectured by Batyrev and Popov. Read More

Anomalous production of low-energy photons from the galactic center have fueled speculations on the nature and properties of dark matter particles. In particular, it has been proposed that light scalars may be responsible for the bulk of the matter density of the universe, and that they couple to ordinary matter through a light spin-1 boson. If this is the case, then such particles may be produced in the quasi-elastic low-energy scattering of electrons off protons. Read More

We introduce the notion of monomial group action and study some of its consequences for Groebner basis theory. As an application we prove a conjecture of V. Batyrev and O. Read More

There are many possibilities for new physics beyond the Standard Model that feature non-standard Higgs sectors. These may introduce new sources of CP violation, and there may be mixing between multiple Higgs bosons or other new scalar bosons. Alternatively, the Higgs may be a composite state, or there may even be no Higgs at all. Read More

The processes of coherent bremsstrahlung (CB) and coherent pair production (CPP) based on aligned crystal targets have been studied in the energy range 20-170 GeV. The experimental arrangement allowed for measurements of single photon properties of these phenomena including their polarization dependences. This is significant as the theoretical description of CB and CPP is an area of active theoretical debate and development. Read More

We review the recent experimental and theoretical progress in the determination of |V_{ud}| and |V_{us}|, and the status of the most stringent test of CKM unitarity. Future prospects on |V_{cd}| and |V_{cs}| are also briefly discussed. Read More

Once Supersymmetry is discovered, exploring the phases of supersymmetric parameters will be one of the most important tasks of future colliders. We analyze the possibilities of investigating the phases of the cMSSM via their effects on the Higgs sector through radiative corrections. Within two benchmark scenarios we compare the capabilities of the LHC, the ILC and a future gamma gamma collider. Read More

The CERN-NA-59 experiment examined a wide range of electromagnetic processes for multi-GeV electrons and photons interacting with oriented single crystals. The various types of crystals and their orientations were used for producing photon beams and for converting and measuring their polarisation. The radiation emitted by 178 GeV unpolarised electrons incident on a 1. Read More

This report summarizes a study of the physics potential of the CLIC e+e- linear collider operating at centre-of-mass energies from 1 TeV to 5 TeV with luminosity of the order of 10^35 cm^-2 s^-1.
