We consider the large order behavior of the perturbative expansion of the scalar $\varphi^4$ field theory in terms of a perturbative expansion around an instanton solution. We have computed the series of the free energy up to two-loop order in two and three dimension. Topologically there is only an additional Feynman diagram with respect to the previously known one dimensional case, but a careful treatment of renormalization is needed. Read More

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 elucidation of the nature of new phenomena requires a multi-pronged approach to understand the essential physics that underlies it. As an example, we study the simplified model containing a new scalar singlet accompanied by vector-like quarks, as motivated by the recent diphoton excess at the LHC. To be specific, we investigate three models with $SU(2)_L$-doublet, vector-like quarks with Yukawa couplings to a new scalar singlet and which also couple off-diagonally to corresponding Standard Model fermions of the first or third generation through the usual Higgs boson.

This report summarises the physics opportunities in the search and study of physics beyond the Standard Model at a 100 TeV pp collider. Read More

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

A possible explanation of the excesses observed by ATLAS in the Z+jets+MET channel within the p(henomenological)MSSM is discussed. We have found that the cascade of first/second generation squarks to binos to Higgsino LSPs, with judiciously chosen sparticle masses, can provide a viable scenario that is consistent with all other experimental constraints. Read More

This draft report summarizes and details the findings, results, and recommendations derived from the ASCR/HEP Exascale Requirements Review meeting held in June, 2015. The main conclusions are as follows. 1) Larger, more capable computing and data facilities are needed to support HEP science goals in all three frontiers: Energy, Intensity, and Cosmic. Read More

We examine the scenario of a warped extra dimension containing bulk SM fields in light of the observed diphoton excess at 750 GeV. We demonstrate that a spin-2 graviton whose action contains localized kinetic brane terms for both gravity and gauge fields is compatible with the excess, while being consistent with all other constraints. The graviton sector of this model contains a single free parameter, once the mass of the graviton is fixed. Read More

I introduce a dynamical field theory to describe the glassy behavior in supercooled liquids. The mean-field approximation of the theory predicts a dynamical arrest transition, as in ideal Mode-Coupling-Theory and mean-field discontinuous Spin-Glass Models. Instead {\it beyond} the mean-field approximation the theory predicts that the transition is avoided and transformed into a crossover, as observed in experiments and simulations. Read More

Simplified models provide a useful tool to conduct the search and exploration of physics beyond the Standard Model in a model-independent fashion. In this work we consider the complementarity of indirect searches for new physics in Higgs couplings and distributions with direct searches for new particles, using a simplified model which includes a new singlet scalar resonance and vector-like fermions that can mix with the SM top-quark. We fit this model to the combined ATLAS and CMS 125 GeV Higgs production and coupling measurements and other precision electroweak constraints, and explore in detail the effects of the new matter content upon Higgs production and kinematics. Read More

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 present a complete characterization of the fluctuations and correlations of the squared overlap in the Edwards-Anderson Spin-Glass model in zero field. The analysis reveals that the energy-energy correlations (and thus the specific heat) have a different critical behavior than the fluctuations of the link overlap in spite of the fact that the average energy and average link overlap have the same critical properties. More precisely the link-overlap fluctuations are larger than the specific heat according to a computation at first order in the $6-\epsilon$ expansion. Read More

We investigate the sensitivity of the next generation of flavor-based low-energy experiments to probe the supersymmetric parameter space in the context of the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM), and examine the complementarity with direct searches for Supersymmetry at the 13 TeV LHC in a quantitative manner. To this end, we enlarge the previously studied pMSSM parameter space to include all physical non-zero CP-violating phases, namely those associated with the gaugino mass parameters, Higgsino mass parameter, and the tri-linear couplings of the top quark, bottom quark and tau lepton. We find that future electric dipole moment and flavor measurements can have a strong impact on the viability of these models even if the sparticle spectrum is out of reach of the 13 TeV LHC. Read More

Stochastic-Beta-Relaxation (SBR) provides a characterisation of the glass crossover in discontinuous Spin-Glasses and Supercoooled liquid. Notably it can be derived through a rigorous computation from a dynamical Landau theory. In this paper I will discuss the precise meaning of this connection in a language that does not require familiarity with statistical field theory. Read More

This document is the final report of the ATLAS-CMS Dark Matter Forum, a forum organized by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations with the participation of experts on theories of Dark Matter, to select a minimal basis set of dark matter simplified models that should support the design of the early LHC Run-2 searches. A prioritized, compact set of benchmark models is proposed, accompanied by studies of the parameter space of these models and a repository of generator implementations. This report also addresses how to apply the Effective Field Theory formalism for collider searches and present the results of such interpretations. Read More

We demonstrate that the $3\sigma$ excess observed by ATLAS in the Z + MET channel can be explained within the context of the MSSM. Using the freedom inherent in the pMSSM, we perform a detailed analysis of the parameter space and find a scenario that describes the excess while simultaneously complying with all other search constraints from the Run I data at 7 and 8 TeV, including the Z + MET analysis by CMS. We generate a small sample of simplified models, using promising models from our existing pMSSM sample as seeds, and study their properties. Read More

This document outlines a set of simplified models for dark matter and its interactions with Standard Model particles. It is intended to summarize the main characteristics that these simplified models have when applied to dark matter searches at the LHC, and to provide a number of useful expressions for reference. The list of models includes both s-channel and t-channel scenarios. Read More

Stochastic Beta Relaxation (SBR) is a model for the dynamics of glass- forming liquids close to the glass transition singularity of the idealized mode- coupling theory (MCT) that has been derived from generic MCT-like theories by applying dynamical field-theory techniques. SBR displays a rich phenomenology common to most super-cooled liquids. In its simplest version it naturally explains two prominent features of the dynamical crossover: the change from a power-law to exponential increase in the structural relaxation time and the violation of the Stokes-Einstein relation between diffusion and viscosity.

The primary goal of any future hadron collider is to discover new physics (NP) associated with a high mass scale, $M$, beyond the range of the LHC. In order to maintain the same {\it relative} mass reach for NP, $M/{\sqrt s}$, as $\sqrt s$ increases, Richter recently reminded us that the required integrated luminosity obtainable at future hadron colliders (FHC) must grow rapidly, $\sim s$, in the limit of naive scaling. This would imply, eg, a $\sim 50$-fold increase in the required integrated luminosity when going from the 14 TeV LHC to a FHC with $\sqrt s=100$ TeV, an increase that would prove quite challenging on many different fronts. Read More

The study of collision events with missing energy as searches for the dark matter (DM) component of the Universe are an essential part of the extensive program looking for new physics at the LHC. Given the unknown nature of DM, the interpretation of such searches should be made broad and inclusive. This report reviews the usage of simplified models in the interpretation of missing energy searches. Read More

We attempt to build a model that describes the {\it Fermi} galactic gamma-ray excess (FGCE) within a UV-complete Supersymmetric framework; we find this to be highly non-trivial. At the very least a successful Supersymmetric explanation must have several important ingredients in order to fit the data and satisfy other theoretical and experimental constraints. Under the assumption that a {\it single} annihilation mediator is responsible for both the observed relic density as well as the FGCE, we show that the requirements are not easily satisfied in many TeV-scale SUSY models, but can be met with some model building effort in the general NMSSM with $\sim 10$ parameters beyond the MSSM. Read More

The parameter space of the MSSM can be probed via many avenues, such as by pre- cision measurements of the couplings of the ~126 GeV Higgs boson, as well as the direct searches for SUSY partners. We examine the connection between these two collider observables at the LHC and ILC in the 19/20-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM. Within this scenario, we address two questions: (i) How will potentially null direct searches for SUSY at the LHC influence the predicted properties of the lightest SUSY Higgs boson? (ii) What can be learned about the properties of the superpartners from precision measurements of the Higgs boson couplings? In this paper, we examine these questions by employing three different large sets of pMSSM models with either the neutralino or gravitino being the LSP. Read More

We study SUSY signatures at the 7, 8 and 14 TeV LHC employing the 19-parameter, R-Parity conserving p(henomenological)MSSM, in the scenario with a neutralino LSP. Our results were obtained via a fast Monte Carlo simulation of the ATLAS SUSY analysis suite. The flexibility of this framework allows us to study a wide variety of SUSY phenomena simultaneously and to probe for weak spots in existing SUSY search analyses. Read More

The presence of a random magnetic field in ferromagnetic systems leads, in the broken phase, to an anomalous $O(\sqrt{1/N})$ convergence of some thermodynamic quantities to their asymptotic limits. Here we show a general method, based on the replica trick, to compute analytically the $O(\sqrt{1/N})$ finite size correction to the average free energy. We apply this method to two mean field Ising models, fully connected and random regular graphs, and compare the results to exact numerical algorithms. Read More

The effect of long wavelength fluctuations on the Mode-Coupling-Theory (MCT) dynamical singularity at $T_c$ in the $\beta$ regime is studied by means of the standard field-theoretical procedure for a genuine second-order phase transition. The resulting perturbative loop expansion can be resummed leading to an extension of the MCT equation for the critical correlator with local random fluctuations of the separation parameter. The corresponding model explains both qualitatively and quantitatively why the MCT dynamical singularity is transformed into a crossover from relaxational to activated dynamics. Read More

As is well known, the search for and eventual identification of dark matter in supersymmetry requires a simultaneous, multi-pronged approach with important roles played by the LHC as well as both direct and indirect dark matter detection experiments. We examine the capabilities of these approaches in the 19-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM which provides a general framework for complementarity studies of neutralino dark matter. We summarize the sensitivity of dark matter searches at the 7, 8 (and eventually 14) TeV LHC, combined with those by \Fermi, CTA, IceCube/DeepCore, COUPP, LZ and XENON. Read More

We derive the analytical expression for the first finite size correction to the average free energy of disordered Ising models on random regular graphs. The formula can be physically interpreted as a weighted sum over all non self-intersecting loops in the graph, the weight being the free-energy shift due to the addition of the loop to an infinite tree.

The production of new gauge bosons is a standard benchmark for the exploration of the physics capabilities of future colliders. The $\sqrt s=100$ TeV Future Hadron Collider will make a major step in our ability to search for and explore the properties of such new states. In this paper, employing traditional models to make contact with the past and more recent literature, we not only establish in detail the discovery and exclusion reaches for both the $Z'$ and $W'$ within these models but, more importantly, we also examine the capability of the FHC to extract information relevant for the determination of the couplings of the $Z'$ to the fermions of the Standard Model as well as the helicity of the corresponding $W'$ couplings.

We discuss some generic features of the dynamics of glass-forming liquids close to the glass transition singularity of the idealized mode-coupling theory (MCT). The analysis is based on a recent model by one of the authors for the intermediate-time dynamics ($\beta$ relaxation), derived by applying dynamical field-theory techniques to the idealized MCT. Combined with the assumption of time-temperature superposition for the slow structural ($\alpha$) relaxation, the model naturally explains three prominent features of the dynamical crossover: the change from a power-law to exponential increase in the structural relaxation time, the replacement of the Stokes-Einstein relation between diffusion and viscosity by a fractional law, and two distinct growth regimes of the thermal susceptibility that has been associated to dynamical heterogeneities.

In the context of disordered systems with quenched Hamiltonians I address the problem of characterizing rare samples where the thermal average of a specific observable has a value different from the typical one. These rare samples can be selected through a variation of the replica trick which amounts to replicate the system and divide the replicas in two groups containing respectively $M$ and $-M$ replicas. Replicas in the first (second) group experience an positive (negative) small field $O(1/M)$ conjugate to the observable considered and the $M \rightarrow \infty$ limit is to be taken in the end.

The search for and potential identification of dark matter (DM) will require a simultaneous, multi-pronged approach with important roles to be played by the LHC, both direct and indirect DM detection experiments and, eventually, the ILC. The 19-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM can provide a broad framework for complementarity studies of neutralino DM. In this talk, I summarized the sensitivity of these searches at the 7, 8 and 14 TeV LHC, combined with those from \Fermi, CTA, IceCube/DeepCore, COUPP, LZ and XENON. Read More

Using a formalism based on the spectral decomposition of the replicated transfer matrix for disordered Ising models, we obtain several results that apply both to isolated one-dimensional systems and to locally tree-like graph and factor graph (p-spin) ensembles. We present exact analytical expressions, which can be efficiently approximated numerically, for many types of correlation functions and for the average free energies of open and closed finite chains. All the results achieved, with the exception of those involving closed chains, are then rigorously derived without replicas, using a probabilistic approach with the same flavour of cavity method.

We present a method derived by cavity arguments to compute the spin-glass and higher-order susceptibilities in diluted mean-field spin-glass models. The divergence of the spin-glass susceptibility is associated to the existence of a non-zero solution of a homogeneous linear integral equation. Higher order susceptibilities, relevant for critical dynamics through the parameter exponent $\lambda$, can be expressed at criticality as integrals involving the critical eigenvector. Read More

We present a treatable generalization of the Sherrington Kirkpatrick model which introduces correlations in the elements of the coupling matrix through multiplicative disorder on the single variables and investigate the consequences on the phase diagram. We define a generalized $q_{EA}$ parameter and test the structural stability of the SK results in this correlated case evaluating the AT-line of the model. As main result we demonstrate the increase of temperature chaos effects due to heterogeneities. Read More

In this Report we discuss the four complementary searches for the identity of dark matter: direct detection experiments that look for dark matter interacting in the lab, indirect detection experiments that connect lab signals to dark matter in our own and other galaxies, collider experiments that elucidate the particle properties of dark matter, and astrophysical probes sensitive to non-gravitational interactions of dark matter. The complementarity among the different dark matter searches is discussed qualitatively and illustrated quantitatively in several theoretical scenarios. Our primary conclusion is that the diversity of possible dark matter candidates requires a balanced program based on all four of those approaches. Read More

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.

As part of the Snowmass process, the Cosmic Frontier Indirect-Detection subgroup (CF2) has drawn on input from the Cosmic Frontier and the broader Particle Physics community to produce this document. The purposes of this report are to identify opportunities for dark matter science through indirect detection, to give an overview of the primary scientific drivers for indirect searches for dark matter, and to survey current and planned experiments that have, as a large part of their scientific program, the goal of searching for indirect (or astrophysical) signatures of dark matter. We primarily address existing experiments with a large U. Read More

In this Snowmass whitepaper, we describe the impact of ongoing and proposed intensity frontier experiments on the parameter space of the Minimally Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We extend a set of phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM) models to include non-zero CP-violating phases and study the sensitivity of various flavor observables in these scenarios Future electric dipole moment and rare meson decay experiments can have a strong impact on the viability of these models that is relatively independent of the detailed superpartner spectrum. In particular, we find that these experiments have the potential to probe models that are expected to escape searches at the high-luminosity LHC. Read More

Direct searches for superpartners and precision measurements of the properties of the $\sim 126$ GeV Higgs boson lead to important inter-dependent constraints on the underlying parameter space of the MSSM. The 19/20-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM offers a flexible framework for the study of a wide variety of both Higgs and SUSY phenomena at the LHC and elsewhere. Within this scenario we address the following questions: `What will potentially null searches for SUSY at the LHC tell us about the possible properties of the Higgs boson?' and, conversely, `What do precision measurements of the properties of the Higgs tell us about the possible properties of the various superpartners?' Clearly the answers to such questions will be functions of both the collision energy of the LHC as well as the accumulated integrated luminosity. Read More

The 19/20-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM with either a neutralino or gravitino LSP offers a flexible framework for the study of a wide variety of R-parity conserving MSSM SUSY phenomena at the 7, 8 and 14 TeV LHC. Here we present the results of a study of SUSY signatures at these facilities obtained via a fast Monte Carlo 'replication' of the ATLAS SUSY analysis suite. In particular, we show the ranges of the sparticle masses that are either disfavored or remain viable after all of the various searches at the 7 and 8 TeV runs are combined. Read More

The standard field-theoretical procedure to study the effect of long wavelength fluctuations on a genuine second-order phase transition is applied to the Mode-Coupling-Theory (MCT) dynamical singularity at $T_c$ in the $\beta$ regime. Technically this is achieved by a dynamical field-theoretical decoration of MCT that can be studied by a loop expansion. An explicit computation shows that at all orders the leading contributions are the same of a dynamical stochastic glassy equation, {\it i. Read More

The search for and identification of neutralino dark matter in supersymmetry requires a multi-pronged approach with important roles played by collider, direct and indirect dark matter detection experiments. In this report, we summarize the sensitivity of such searches at the 7, 8 (and eventually 14) TeV LHC, combined with those by Fermi, CTA, IceCube/DeepCore, COUPP and XENON1T, to such particles within the context of the 19-parameter p(henomenological)MSSM. This report provides an outline of the current status of our results and our expectations for future analyses. Read More

We study the finite size corrections to the free energy density in disorder spin systems on sparse random graphs, using both replica theory and cavity method. We derive an analytical expressions for the $O(1/N)$ corrections in the replica symmetric phase as a linear combination of the free energies of open and closed chains. We perform a numerical check of the formulae on the Random Field Ising Model at zero temperature, by computing finite size corrections to the ground state energy density. Read More

We present several benchmark points in the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM). We select these models as experimentally well-motivated examples of the MSSM which predict the observed Higgs mass and dark matter relic density while evading the current LHC searches. We also use benchmarks to generate spokes in parameter space by scaling the mass parameters in a manner which keeps the Higgs mass and relic density approximately constant. Read More

I consider branches of Replica-Symmetry-Breaking (RSB) solutions in Glassy systems that display a dynamical transition at a temperature $T_d$ characterized by a Mode-Coupling-Theory dynamical behavior. Below $T_d$ these branches of solutions are considered to be relevant to the complexity and to off-equilibrium dynamics. Under general assumptions I argue that near $T_d$ it is not possible to stabilize the one-step (1RSB) solution beyond the marginal point by making a full RSB (FRSB) ansatz. Read More

In this report we summarize the many dark matter searches currently being pursued through four complementary approaches: direct detection, indirect detection, collider experiments, and astrophysical probes. The essential features of broad classes of experiments are described, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The complementarity of the different dark matter searches is discussed qualitatively and illustrated quantitatively in two simple theoretical frameworks. Read More

We consider off-equilibrium dynamics at the critical temperature in a class of glassy system. The off-equilibrium correlation and response functions obey a precise scaling form in the aging regime. The structure of the {\it equilibrium} replicated Gibbs free energy fixes the corresponding {\it off-equilibrium} scaling functions implicitly through two functional equations. Read More
