We calculate the invariant and helicity amplitudes for the transitions $\Lambda_b~\to~\Lambda^{(\ast)}(J^P)~+~J/\psi$ where the $\Lambda^{(\ast)}(J^P)$ are $\Lambda(sud)$-type ground and excited states with $J^P$ quantum numbers $J^P=\frac12^{\pm},\frac32^{\pm}$. The calculations are performed in the framework of a covariant confined quark model previously developed by us. We find that the values of the helicity amplitudes for the $\Lambda^\ast(1520,\,\frac32^-)$ and the $\Lambda^\ast(1890,\,\frac32^+)$ are suppressed compared with those for the ground state $\Lambda(1116,\,\frac12^+)$ and the excited state $\Lambda^\ast(1405,\,\frac12^-)$.

An efficient representation of the concentration dependence of the excess Gibbs free energy Gex for saline solutions is proposed. The analytic form of Gex includes one term responsible for concentration dependence of Gex at low salt concentrations and two terms of Margules type dependent on powers of mole fractions of the components. These terms contain four parameters dependent on temperature and pressure. Read More

We discuss possible new physics (NP) effects beyond the standard model (SM) in the exclusive decays $\bar{B}^0 \to D^{(\ast)} \tau^- \bar{\nu}_{\tau}$. Starting with a model-independent effective Hamiltonian including non-SM four-Fermi operators, we show how to obtain experimental constraints on different NP scenarios and investigate their effects on a large set of physical observables. The $\bar{B}^0 \to D^{(\ast)}$ transition form factors are calculated in the full kinematic $q^2$ range by employing the covariant confined quark model developed by our group. Read More

These notes are an introduction to General Relativity as a Quantum Effective Field Theory, following the material given in a short course on the subject at EPFL. The intent is to develop General Relativity starting from a quantum field theoretic viewpoint, and to introduce some of the techniques needed to understand the subject. Read More

We investigate the exclusive semileptonic decays $J/\psi \to D_{(s)}^{(*)-} {\ell}^+ \nu_{\ell}$, where $\ell=e,\mu$, within the Standard Model. The relevant transition form factors are calculated in the framework of a relativistic constituent quark model with built-in infrared confinement. Our calculations predict the branching fractions $\mathcal{B}(J/\psi \to D_{(s)}^{(*)-} {\ell}^+ \nu_{\ell})$ to be of the order of $10^{-10}$ for $D_s^{(*)-}$ and $10^{-11}$ for $D^{(*)-}$.

We study the longitudinal, transverse, and normal polarization components of the tau lepton in the decays $\bar{B}^0 \to D^{(\ast)} \tau^- \bar\nu_{\tau}$ and discuss their role in searching for new physics (NP) beyond the standard model (SM). Starting with a model-independent effective Hamiltonian including non-SM four-Fermi operators, we obtain experimental constraints on different NP scenarios and investigate their effects on the polarization observables. In the SM the longitudinal and transverse polarizations of the tau lepton differ substantially from the corresponding zero lepton mass values of $P_L=-1$ and $P_T=0$. Read More

We study the creation and evolution of cosmological perturbations in renormalizable quadratic gravity with a Weyl term. We adopt a prescription that implies the stability of the vacuum at the price of introducing a massive spin-two ghost state, leading to the loss of unitarity. The theory may still be predictive regardless the interpretation of non-unitary processes provided that their rate is negligible compared to the Universe expansion rate. Read More

We examine the four-quark structure of the recently discovered charged $Z_c(3900)$, $Z(4430)$, and $X_b(5568)$ states. We calculate the widths of the strong decays $Z_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+$ ($\eta_c\rho^+$, $\bar D^0D^{\ast\,+}$, $\bar D^{\ast\,0}D^+$), $Z(4430)^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+$ ($\psi(2s) \pi^+$), and $X^+_b\to B_s\pi^+$ within a covariant quark model previously developed by us. We find that the tetraquark-type current widely used in the literature for the $Z_c(3900)$ leads to a significant suppression of the $\bar D D^\ast$ and $\bar D^\ast D$ modes. Read More

We present a study of the isospin-violating one-pion strong decays of single heavy tetraquarks $X_Q = X(s q \bar q \bar Q)$, $Q=c, b$, and $q=u, d$ with spin-parity $J^P = 0^+$. We assume that the tetraquarks have the configuration of a color diquark and a antidiquark. Three mechanisms of isospin violation can contribute to the decay rate: (1) mixing of the $X(s u \bar u \bar Q)$ and $X(s d \bar d \bar Q)$ tetraquark currents, (2) an explicit $m_d-m_u$ quark mass difference in the quark diagrams describing the corresponding decay transitions and (3) $\pi^0-\eta$ mixing in the final state.

We present results for the isotriplet and isosinglet tensor form factors of the nucleon in the relativistic confined quark model. The model allows us to calculate not only their normalizations at $Q^2=0$ and the related tensor charges, but also the full $Q^2$-dependence. Our results are compared to existing data and predictions of other theoretical approaches. Read More

In this contribution we will discuss the non-linear effects in the baryon acoustic oscillations and present a systematic and controllable way to account for them within time-sliced perturbation theory. Read More

We analyze the performance of coded slotted ALOHA systems for a scenario where users have different error protection requirements and correspondingly can be divided into user classes. The main goal is to design the system so that the requirements for each class are satisfied. To that end, we derive analytical error floor approximations of the packet loss rate for each class in the finite frame length regime, as well as the density evolution in the asymptotic case. Read More

We study possible New Physics (NP) effects in the exclusive decays $\bar{B}^0 \to D^{(\ast)} \tau^- \bar{\nu}_{\tau}$. We extend the Standard Model (SM) by taking into account right-handed vector (axial), left- and right-handed (pseudo)scalar, and tensor current contributions. The $\bar{B}^0 \to D^{(\ast)}$ transition form factors are calculated in the full kinematic $q^2$ range by employing a covariant quark model developed by us. Read More

One of the possible sources of hadronic cosmic rays (CRs) are newborn pulsars. If this is indeed the case, they should feature diffusive gamma-ray halos produced by interactions of CRs with interstellar gas. In this paper we try to identify extended gamma-ray emission around young pulsars, making use of the 7-year Fermi-LAT data. Read More

This brief contribution is devoted to phenomenological consequences of deviations from Lorentz invariance in gravity and dark matter. We will discuss main effects on cosmological observables and current constraints derived from astrophysical and cosmological data. Read More

We use time-sliced perturbation theory (TSPT) to give an accurate description of the infrared non-linear effects affecting the baryonic acoustic oscillations (BAO) present in the distribution of matter at very large scales. In TSPT this can be done via a systematic resummation that has a simple diagrammatic representation and does not involve uncontrollable approximations. We discuss the power counting rules and derive explicit expressions for the resummed matter power spectrum up to next-to leading order and the bispectrum at the leading order. Read More

Our article is devoted to the study of the rare $B_s\to \phi \ell^+\ell^-$ decay where $\ell=\mu,\tau$. We compute the relevant form factors in the framework of the covariant quark model with infrared confinement in the full kinematical momentum transfer region. The calculated form factors are used to evaluate branching fractions and polarization observables in the cascade decay $B\to \phi(\to K^+K^-)\ell^+\ell^-$. Read More

We point out that the observed time delay between the detection of the signal at the Hanford and Livingston LIGO sites from the gravitational wave event GW150914 places an upper bound on the speed of propagation of gravitational waves, $c_{gw}\lesssim 1.7$ in the units of speed of light. Combined with the lower bound from the absence of gravitational Cherenkov losses by cosmic rays that rules out most of subluminal velocities, this gives a model-independent double-sided constraint $1\lesssim c_{gw}\lesssim 1. Read More

We present a new analytic approach to describe large scale structure formation in the mildly non-linear regime. The central object of the method is the time-dependent probability distribution function generating correlators of the cosmological observables at a given moment of time. Expanding the distribution function around the Gaussian weight we formulate a perturbative technique to calculate non-linear corrections to cosmological correlators, similar to the diagrammatic expansion in a three-dimensional Euclidean quantum field theory, with time playing the role of an external parameter. Read More

The contemporary practice is to favor the use of the SI units for electric circuits and the Gaussian CGS system for electromagnetic field. A modification of the Gaussian system of units (the Physics and Technology System) is suggested. In the Physics and Technology System the units of measurement for electrical circuits coincide with SI units, and the equations for the electromagnetic field are almost the same form as in the Gaussian system.

We present precise theoretical predictions for the absolute branching fractions of $\Lambda_c^+ \to \Lambda \ell^+ \nu_\ell\,(\ell=e,\mu)$ decays in the covariant confined quark model. This study is motivated by two recent and accurate measurements of the absolute branching fractions of $\Lambda_c^+ \to p K^- \pi^+$ and $\Lambda_c^+ \to \Lambda e^+ \nu_e$ by the Belle Collaboration at the KEKB and by the BESIII Collaboration at the BEPCII. Our predictions for the branching fractions are consistent with both experimental results. Read More

Our article is devoted to the study of the rare $B\to K^\ast \ell^+\ell^-$~decay where $\ell=e,\mu,\tau$. We compute the relevant form factors in the framework of the covariant quark model with infrared confinement in the full kinematical momentum transfer region. The calculated form factors are used to evaluate branching fractions and polarization observables in the cascade decay $B\to K^\ast(\to K\pi)\ell^+\ell^-$. Read More

We propose an uncoordinated medium access control (MAC) protocol, called all-to-all broadcast coded slotted ALOHA (B-CSA) for reliable all-to-all broadcast with strict latency constraints. In B-CSA, each user acts as both transmitter and receiver in a half-duplex mode. The half-duplex mode gives rise to a double unequal error protection (DUEP) phenomenon: the more a user repeats its packet, the higher the probability that this packet is decoded by other users, but the lower the probability for this user to decode packets from others. Read More

Recently the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN reported on the measurement of the branching ratio R(Lambda_b) = Gamma(Lambda_b(0) -> psi(2S) Lambda(0))/Gamma(Lambda_b(0) -> J/psi Lambda(0)). The measured branching ratio R(Lambda_b) = 0.501 pm 0. Read More

We analyze the tauonic semileptonic baryon decays $\Lambda^0_b \to \Lambda^+_c + \tau^{-} +\bar \nu_{\tau}$ with particular emphasis on the lepton helicity flip contributions which vanish for zero lepton masses. We calculate the total rate, differential decay distributions, the longitudinal and transverse polarization components of the $\Lambda^+_c$ and the $\tau^-$, and the lepton-side forward-backward asymmetries. We use the covariant confined quark model to provide numerical results on these observables. Read More

The values of charged pion polarizabilities obtained in the framework of chiral perturbation theory at the level of two-loop accuracy are compared with the experimental result recently reported by COMPASS Collaboration. It is found that the calculated value for the dipole polarizabilities $(\alpha-\beta)_{\pi^\pm}= (5.7\pm 1. Read More

The paper discuss the structure of quantum mechanics and uniqueness of its postulates. The Born rule for quantum probabilities is fixed by requirement of nonexistence of quantum telepathy. Von Neumann projection postulate describes the transformation of quantum state under the condition of no-interaction measurement. Read More

We study the exclusive leptonic and semileptonic $B$ decays $B \to \ell^- \bar\nu$ and $B \to D^{(\ast)} \ell^-\bar\nu$ in the framework of the covariant quark model with built-in infrared confinement. We compute the relevant form factors in the full kinematical momentum transfer region. The calculated form factors are used to evaluate branching fractions and polarization observables of the above transitions. Read More

The main goal of this paper is to define a certain Chow weight structure $w_{Chow}$ on the category $DM_c(S)$ of (constructible) $cdh$-motives over an equicharacteristic scheme $S$. In contrast to the previous papers of D. H\'ebert and the first author on weights for relative motives (with rational coefficients), we can achieve our goal for motives with integral coefficients (if $\operatorname{char}S=0$; if $\operatorname{char}S=p>0$ then we consider motives with $\mathbb{Z}[\frac{1}{p}]$-coefficients). Read More

We propose a probabilistic handshake mechanism for all-to-all broadcast coded slotted ALOHA. We consider a fully connected network where each user acts as both transmitter and receiver in a half-duplex mode. Users attempt to exchange messages with each other and to establish one-to-one handshakes, in the sense that each user decides whether its packet was successfully received by the other users: After performing decoding, each user estimates in which slots the resolved users transmitted their packets and, based on that, decides if these users successfully received its packet. Read More

In the wake of exploring uncertainty in the full angular distribution of the $B\to K\pi+\mu^+\mu^-$ caused by the presence of the intermediate scalar $K^\ast_0$ meson, we perform the straightforward calculation of the $B(B_s)\to S$ (S is a scalar meson) transition form factors in the full kinematical region within the covariant quark model. We restrict ourselves by the scalar mesons below 1 GeV: $a_0(980), f_0(500), f_0(980), K^\ast_0(800)$. As an application of the obtained results we calculate the widths of the semileptonic and rare decays $B(B_s)\to S\ell\bar\nu$, $B(B_s)\to S\ell\bar\ell$ and $B(B_s)\to S\nu\bar\nu$. Read More

Recently there has been much interest in the tauonic semileptonic meson decays B -> D + tau + nu_tau and B -> D* + tau + nu_tau where one has found larger rates than what is predicted by the Standard Model. We analyze the corresponding semileptonic baryon decays Lambda_b(0) -> Lambda_c(+) + tau(-) + antinu_tau with particular emphasis on the lepton helicity flip and scalar contributions which vanish for zero lepton masses. We calculate the total rate, differential decay distributions, the longitudinal and transverse polarization of the daughter baryon Lambda_c(+) and the tau-lepton, and the lepton-side forward-backward asymmetries. Read More

We propose an uncoordinated all-to-all broadcast protocol for periodic messages in vehicular networks based on coded slotted ALOHA (CSA). Unlike classical CSA, each user acts as both transmitter and receiver in a half-duplex mode. As in CSA, each user transmits its packet several times. Read More

We present a framework for the analysis of the error floor of coded slotted ALOHA (CSA) for finite frame lengths over the packet erasure channel. The error floor is caused by stopping sets in the corresponding bipartite graph, whose enumeration is, in general, not a trivial problem. We therefore identify the most dominant stopping sets for the distributions of practical interest. Read More

We present a detailed analysis of the heavy-to-light semileptonic decays of the Lambda_b and Lambda_c baryons Lambda_b -> p l- bar(nu)_l and Lambda_c -> n l+ nu_l in the covariant confined quark model. We calculate the invariant and helicity amplitudes of the two processes which are then used to analyze their angular decay distributions, their rates and asymmetry parameters. Read More

We provide a new insight into the problem of generating the hadron mass spectrum in the framework of the covariant confined quark model. One of the underlying principles of this model is the compositeness condition which means that the wave function renormalization constant of the elementary hadron is equal to zero. In particular, this equation allows to express the Yukawa coupling of the meson fields to the constituent quarks as a function of other model parameters. Read More

The one-zone model of non-adiabatic radial stellar pulsations is considered. Contrary to the original Zhevakin's work the triple-alpha process is the basic thermonuclear fusion reaction within the star under investigation. The model has four dimensionless numbers. Read More

We present a comprehensive study of the information rate loss of the max-log approximation for $M$-ary pulse-amplitude modulation (PAM) in a bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) system. It is widely assumed that the calculation of L-values using the max-log approximation leads to an information loss. We prove that this assumption is correct for all $M$-PAM constellations and labelings with the exception of a symmetric 4-PAM constellation labeled with a Gray code. Read More

We present a setup that provides a partial UV-completion of the ghost inflation model up to a scale which can be almost as high as the Planck mass. This is achieved by coupling the inflaton to the Lorentz-violating sector described by the Einstein-aether theory or its khronometric version. Compared to previous works on ghost inflation our setup allows to go beyond the study of small perturbations and include the background dynamics in a unified framework. Read More

In [arXiv: 1312.1118] the author has found the formal series describing radial adiabatic pulsations of polytropes. These series include a time-dependent function, unknown yet. Read More

A self-gravitating sphere of polytropic gas (polytrope) is considered. The system of equations describing radial motions of this sphere in Lagrangian variables reduces to the only nonlinear PDE of the second order in both variables (Lagrangian coordinate and time). The linearization of this PDE leads to the well-known Eddington's equation of the standard model. Read More

We calculate the invariant and helicity amplitudes for the nonleptonic decay Lambda_b -> Lambda + J/psi, psi(2S) in the covariant confined quark model. We discuss joint angular decay distributions in the cascade decay Lambda_b -> Lambda(-> p pi-) + J/psi, psi(2S) (-> l+ l-) and calculate some of the asymmetry parameters that characterize the joint angular decay distribution. We confirm expectations from the naive quark model that the transitions into the lambda_Lambda=1/2 helicity states of the daughter baryon Lambda are strongly suppressed leading to a near maximal negative polarization of the Lambda. Read More

We study cosmological solutions in $R + \beta R^{N}$-gravity for an isotropic Universe filled with ordinary matter with the equation of state parameter $\gamma$. Using the Bogolyubov-Krylov-Mitropol'skii averaging method we find asymptotic oscillatory solutions in terms of new functions, which have been specially introduced by us for this problem and appeared as a natural generalization of the usual sine and cosine. It is shown that the late-time behaviour of the Universe in the model under investigation is determined by the sign of the difference $\gamma-\gamma_{crit}$ where $\gamma_{crit}=2N/(3N-2)$. Read More

Two decoder structures for coded modulation over the Gaussian and flat fading channels are studied: the maximum likelihood symbol-wise decoder, and the (suboptimal) bit-wise decoder based on the bit-interleaved coded modulation paradigm. We consider a 16-ary quadrature amplitude constellation labeled by a Gray labeling. It is shown that the asymptotic loss in terms of pairwise error probability, for any two codewords caused by the bit-wise decoder, is bounded by 1. Read More

Regimes of chemical reaction wave propagating in reactive gaseous mixtures, whose chemistry is governed by chain-branching kinetics, are studied depending on the characteristics of a transient thermal energy deposition localized in a finite volume of reactive gas. Different regimes of the reaction wave propagation are initiated depending on the amount of deposited thermal energy, power of the source and the size of the hot spot. The main parameters which define regimes of the combustion waves facilitated by the transient deposition of thermal energy are: acoustic timescale, duration of the energy deposition, ignition time scale and size of the hot spot. Read More

This talk reviews the last applications of the covariant quark model for studying the properties of the multiquark states: B_s-meson (quark-antiquark state), light baryons (three-quark states) and tetraquark (four-quark state). The form factors of the B(B_s)-> P(V)-transitions are evaluated in the full kinematical region of momentum transfer squared. The widths of some B_s-nonleptonic decays are calculated. Read More

Using the covariant constituent quark model previously developed by us we calculate the differential rate and the forward-backward asymmetries on the lepton and hadron side for the rare baryon decays Lambda_b -> Lambda l+ l- (l=e, mu, tau) and Lambda_b -> Lambda gamma. We use helicity methods to write down a three-fold joint angular decay distribution for the cascade decay Lambda_b -> Lambda (-> p pi-) + J_eff (-> l+ l-). Through appropriate angular integrations we obtain expressions for the rates, the lepton-side forward-backward (FB) asymmetry and the polarization of the daughter baryon Lambda leading to a hadron-side forward-backward asymmetry. Read More

The covariant quark model represents an appropriate theoretical framework to describe the recent results on $B_{s}\rightarrow J/\psi+\eta$ and $B_{s}\rightarrow J/\psi+\eta'$ decays from the Belle collaboration. In this article we present the main features of he covariant quark model together with details on some of its aspects and methods, which we consider to be important. Further we apply the model specifically to the studied decay processes and give numerical results on decay widths as they follow from the odel. Read More

A novel general ready-to-use bit-error rate (BER) expression for one-dimensional constellations is developed. The BER analysis is performed for bit patterns that form a labeling. The number of patterns for equally spaced M-PAM constellations with different BER is analyzed. Read More
