$H \rightarrow e^+ e^- $ at CEPC: ISR effect with MadGraph

The Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) is a future Higgs factory proposed by the Chinese high energy physics community. It will operate at a center-of-mass energy of 240-250 GeV. The CEPC will accumulate an integrated luminosity of 5 ab$^{\rm{-1}}$ in ten years' operation. With GEANT4-based full simulation samples for CEPC, Higgs boson decaying into electron pair is studied at the CEPC. The upper limit of ${\cal B}(H \rightarrow e^+ e^-)$ could reach 0.024\% at 95\% confidence level. The signal process is generated by MadGraph, with Initial State Radiation (ISR) implemented, as a first step to adjust MadGraph for a electron positron Collider.

In this paper, we have compared two different accretion mechanisms of dark matter particles by a canonical neutron star with $M=1.4~M_{\odot}$ and $R=10~{\rm km}$, and shown the effects of dark matter heating on the surface temperature of star. We should take into account the Bondi accretion of dark matter by neutron stars rather than the accretion mechanism of Kouvaris (2008) \citep{Kouvaris08}, once the dark matter density is higher than $\sim3.

Combined HERA data on charm production in deep-inelastic scattering have previously been used to determine the charm-quark running mass $m_c(m_c)$ in the MSbar renormalisation scheme. Here, the same data are used as a function of the photon virtuality $Q^2$ to evaluate the charm-quark running mass at different scales to one-loop order, in the context of a next-to-leading order QCD analysis. The scale dependence of the mass is found to be consistent with QCD expectations. Read More


We use the LHCb data on the forward production of $D$ mesons at 7, 13 and 5 TeV to make a direct determination of the gluon distribution, $xg$, at NLO in the $10^{-5} \lesssim x \lesssim 10^{-4}$ region. We first use a simple parametrization of the gluon density in each of the four transverse momentum intervals of the detected $D$ mesons. Second, we use a double log parametrization to make a combined fit to all the LHCb $D$ meson data. Read More


In this paper we present a detailed comparison of the dijet production by photon -- photon, photon -- pomeron and pomeron -- pomeron interactions in ${\rm pp}$, ${\rm pA}$ and ${\rm AA}$ collisions at the LHC energy. The transverse momentum, pseudo -- rapidity and angular dependencies of the cross sections are calculated at LHC energy using the Forward Physics Monte Carlo (FPMC), which allows to obtain realistic predictions for the dijet production with two leading intact hadrons. We obtain that $\gamma \mathbb {P}$ channel is dominant at forward rapidities in ${\rm pp}$ collisions and in the full kinematical range in nuclear collisions of heavy nuclei. Read More


We calculate loop induced lepton flavor violating Higgs decays in the Littlest Higgs model with T-parity. We find that a finite amplitude is obtained only when all contributions from the T-odd lepton sector are included. This is in contrast to lepton flavor violating processes mediated by gauge bosons where the partners of the right-handed mirror leptons can be decoupled from the spectrum. Read More


In this paper we present conjoined constraints on several cosmological models from the expansion history $H(z)$ and cosmic growth $f\sigma_8$. The models we studied include the CPL $w_0w_a$ parametrization, the Holographic Dark Energy (HDE) model, the Time varying vacuum ($\Lambda_t$CDM) model, the Dvali, Gabadadze and Porrati (DGP) and Finsler-Randers (FRDE) model, a power law $f(T)$ model and finally the Hu-Sawicki $f(R)$ model. In all cases we used the best-fit parameters as determined in Basilakos and Nesseris (2016) and we followed the conjoined visualization of $H(z)$ and $f\sigma_8$ as in Linder (2017). Read More


Possible manifestations of the isospin-breaking mixing of the $a^0_0(980)$ and $f_0(980)$ resonances are analyzed in the $D^0\to K^0_S \pi^+\pi^-$ and $D^0\to K^0_S\eta\pi^0$ decays. It is shown that the $a^0_0(980)-f_0(980)$ mixing has the most influence on the $\pi^+\pi^-$ mass spectrum in the decay $D^0\to K^0_S\pi^+\pi^-$. Owing to the $a^0_0(980)-f_0(980)$ mixing, the $f_0(980)$ peak in $D^0 \to K^0_Sf_0(980)\to K^0_S \pi^+\pi^-$ can experience distortions comparable with its size. Read More


We formulate the chiral kinetic equation with the longitudinal boost invariance. We particularly focus on the physical interpretation of the particle number conservation. There appear two terms associated with the expansion, which did not exist in the non-chiral kinetic equation. Read More


The Leggett-Garg inequality (LGI), derived under the assumption of realism, acts as the temporal Bell's inequality. It is studied in electromagnetic and strong interaction like photonics, superconducting qubits and nuclear spin, until the weak interaction two-state oscillations of neutrinos affirmed the violation of LGI. We make a test for violations of the classical bound by analyzing the survival probability data of ensemble of neutrinos at distinct propagating lengths divide energies, as an analog to single neutrino detected at different times.

In present work, we investigate the spectrum of several low-lying $sscq\bar{q}$ pentaquark configurations employing the constituent quark model, within which the hyperfine interaction between quarks is taken to be mediated by Goldstone boson exchange. Our numerical results show that four $sscq\bar{q}$ configurations with $J^{P}=1/2^{-}$ or $J^{P}=3/2^{-}$ lie at energies very close to the recently observed five $\Omega_{c}^{0}$ states by LHCb collaboration, this indicates that the $sscq\bar{q}$ pentaquark configurations may form sizable components of the observed $\Omega_{c}^{0}$ resonances.
