Title  Heavy WIMP Effective Theory : Formalism and Applications for Scattering on Nucleon Targets 
Author(s)  Solon, Mikhail P 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 177 p. 26 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is about dark matter???s particle nature and the implications of a new symmetry that appears when a hypothetical dark matter particle is heavy compared to known elementary particles. Dark matter exists and composes about 85% of the matter in the universe, but it cannot be explained in terms of the known elementary particles. Discovering dark matter's particle nature is one of the most pressing open problems in particle physics. This thesis derives the implications of a new symmetry that appears when the hypothetical dark matter particle is heavy compared to the known elementary particles, a situation which is well motivated by the null results of searches at the LHC and elsewhere. The new symmetry predicts a universal interaction between dark matter and ordinary matter, which in turn may be used to determine the event rate and detectable energy in dark matter direct detection experiments. The computation of heavy wino and higgsino dark matter presented in this work has become a benchmark for the field of direct detection. This thesis has also spawned a new field of investigation in dark matter indirect detection, determining heavy WIMP annihilation rates using effective field theory methods. It describes a new formalism for implementing Lorentz invariance constraints in nonrelativistic theories, with a surprising result at 1/M^4 order that contradicts the prevailing ansatz in the past 20 years of heavy quark literature. The author has also derived new perturbative QCD results to provide the definitive analysis of key Standard Model observables such as heavy quark scalar matrix elements of the nucleon. ??This is an influential thesis, with impacts in dark matter phenomenology, field theory formalism and precision hadronic physics

Title  Gauge Invariance and Weylpolymer Quantization 
Author(s)  Strocchi, Franco 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 97 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book gives an introduction to Weyl nonregular quantization suitable for the description of physically interesting quantum systems, where the traditional DiracHeisenberg quantization is not applicable.?? The latter implicitly assumes that the canonical variables describe observables, entailing necessarily the regularity of their exponentials (Weyl operators). However, in physically interesting cases  typically in the presence of a gauge symmetry  nonobservable canonical variables are introduced for the description of the states, namely of the relevant representations of the observable algebra. In general, a gauge invariant ground state defines a nonregular representation of the gauge dependent Weyl operators, providing a mathematically consistent treatment of familiar quantum systems  such as the electron in a periodic potential (Bloch electron), the Quantum Hall electron, or the quantum particle on a circle  where the gauge transformations are, respectively, the lattice translations, the magnetic translations and the rotations of 2??. Relevant examples are also provided by quantum gauge field theory models, in particular by the temporal gauge of Quantum Electrodynamics, avoiding the conflict between the Gauss law constraint and the DiracHeisenberg canonical quantization. The same applies to Quantum Chromodynamics, where the nonregular quantization of the temporal gauge provides a simple solution of the U(1) problem and a simple link between the vacuum structure and the topology of the gauge group. Last but not least, Weyl nonregular quantization is briefly discussed from the perspective of the socalled polymer representations proposed for Loop Quantum Gravity in connection with diffeomorphism invariant vacuum states

Title  Effective Field Theories for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos in a Thermal Bath 
Author(s)  Biondini, Simone 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 215 p. 86 illus., 65 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis discusses the construction of an effective field theory (EFT) for nonrelativistic Majorana fermions, shows how to use it to calculate observables in a thermal medium, and derives the effects of these thermal particles on the CP asymmetry.?? The methods described in this thesis are the only ones to date that allow a systematic and effective description of the nonrelativistic dynamics of a heavy Majorana fermion at finite temperature. The CP asymmetry is studied for hierarchical and nearly degenerate heavyneutrino masses and the analysis includes the treatment of leptonflavor effects.?? Heavy Majorana neutrinos are involved in many scenarios of physics beyond the standard model and, in the leptogenesis framework, they are at the root of the baryon asymmetry in the Universe. Besides simplifying existing results, the EFT approach provides useful tools for addressing even more involved observables. Indeed, taken together, the approach and the material pres ented here represent an important step toward a systematic improvement of our knowledge of the CP asymmetry in heavyneutrino decays at finite temperature

Title  Concepts in Quantum Field Theory : A Practitioner's Toolkit 
Author(s)  Ilisie, Victor 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 190 p. 25 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book uses less strict yet still formal mathematical language to clarify a variety of concepts in Quantum Field Theory that remain somewhat ???fuzzy??? in many books designed for undergraduates and fresh graduates. The aim is not to replace formal books on Quantum Field Theory, but rather to offer a helpful complementary tool for beginners in the field. Features include a readerfriendly introduction to tensor calculus and the concept of manifolds; a simple and robust treatment for dimensional regularization; a consistent explanation of the renormalization procedure, step by step and in a transparent manner at all orders, using the QED Lagrangian; and extensive treatment of infrared as well as ultraviolet divergences. The most general (Lorentz invariant) form of Noether's theorem is presented and applied to a few simple yet relevant examples in Quantum Field Theory. These and further interesting topics are addressed in a way that will be accessible for the target readership. Some familiarity with basic notions of Quantum Field Theory and the basics of Special Relativity is assumed

Title  Supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories : From Quarks to Strings via SUSY GUTs 
Author(s)  Raby, Stuart 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 427 p. 68 illus., 53 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  These coursetested lectures provide a technical introduction to Supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories (SUSY GUTs), as well as a personal view on the topic by one of the pioneers in the field. While the Standard Model of Particle Physics is incredibly successful in describing the known universe it is, nevertheless, an incomplete theory with many free parameters and open issues. An elegant solution to all of these quandaries is the proposed theory of SUSY GUTs. In a GUT, quarks and leptons are related in a simple way by the unifying symmetry and their electric charges are quantized, further the relative strength of the strong, weak and electromagnetic forces are predicted. SUSY GUTs additionally provide a framework for understanding particle masses and offer candidates for dark matter. Finally, with the extension of SUSY GUTs to string theory, a quantummechanically consistent unification of the four known forces (including gravity) is obtained. The book is organized in three sections: the first section contains a brief introduction to the Standard Model, supersymmetry and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Then SUSY GUTs in four spacetime dimensions are introduced and reviewed. In addition, the cosmological issues concerning SUSY GUTs are discussed. Then the requirements for embedding a 4D SUSY GUT into higherdimensional theories including gravity (i.e. String Theory) are investigated. Accordingly, section two of the course is devoted to discussing the socalled Orbifold GUTs and how in turn they solve some of the technical problems of 4D SUSY GUTs. Orbifold GUTs introduce a new set of open issues, which are then resolved in the third section in which it is shown how to embed Orbifold GUTs into the E(8) x E(8) Heterotic String in 10 spacetime dimensions

Title  Study of Double Parton Scattering Using FourJet Scenarios : in ProtonProton Collisions at sqrt s = 7 TeV with the CMS Experiment at the LHC 
Author(s)  Gunnellini, Paolo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XX, 279 p. 125 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis addresses, in a novel and elegant way, a combination of measurements that are used to extract socalled double parton scattering. The method is easy to apply and overcomes many of the technical difficulties of older methods.??Many new phenomena in particle physics can be??observed when particles are collided at the highest energies; one of the highlights in recent years was the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Understanding the production mechanism of the Higgs boson at the LHC requires detailed knowledge of the physics of protonproton collisions. When the density of partons in the protons becomes large, there is a nonnegligible probability that more than one parton participates in the interaction and the socalled double parton scattering becomes important. In some cases very particular final state signatures can be observed, which can be regarded as an indication of such double partonic scattering and where the different interactions can be separated. Such multiple partonic interactions play an important role when precise predictions from known processes are required

Title  Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory : An Introduction for Mathematicians 
Author(s)  Rejzner, Kasia 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 180 p. 4 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (pAQFT), the subject of this book, is a complete and mathematically rigorous treatment of perturbative quantum field theory (pQFT) that doesn???t require the use of divergent quantities. We discuss in detail the examples of scalar fields and gauge theories and generalize them to QFT on curved spacetimes. pQFT models describe a wide range of physical phenomena and have remarkable agreement with experimental results. Despite this success, the theory suffers from many conceptual problems. pAQFT is a good candidate to solve many, if not all of these conceptual problems. Chapters 13 provide some background in mathematics and physics. Chapter 4 concerns classical theory of the scalar field, which is subsequently quantized in chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 covers gauge theory and chapter 8 discusses QFT on curved spacetimes and effective quantum gravity. The book aims to be accessible researchers and graduate students interested in the mathematical foundations of pQFT are the intended audience

Title  Beyond Standard Model Collider Phenomenology of Higgs Physics and Supersymmetry 
Author(s)  Thomas, Marc Christopher 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 101 p. 30 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis studies collider phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It also explores in detail advanced topics related to Higgs boson and supersymmetry ??? one of the most exciting and wellmotivated streams in particle physics. In particular, it finds a very large enhancement of multiple Higgs boson production in vectorboson scattering when Higgs couplings to gauge bosons differ from those predicted by the Standard Model. The thesis demonstrates that due to the loss of unitarity, the very large enhancement for triple Higgs boson production takes place. This is a truly novel finding. The thesis also studies the effects of supersymmetric partners of top and bottom quarks on the Higgs production and decay at the LHC, pointing for the first time to nonuniversal alterations for two main production processes of the Higgs boson at the LHC???vector boson fusion and gluon???gluon fusion. Continuing the exploration of Higgs boson and supersymmetry at the LHC, the thesis extends existing experimental analysis and shows that for a single decay channel the mass of the top quark superpartner below 175 GeV can be completely excluded, which in turn excludes electroweak baryogenesis in the Minimal Supersymmetric Model. This is a major new finding for the HEP community. This thesis is very clearly written and the introduction and conclusions are accessible to a wide spectrum of readers

Title  Theoretical Study on Correlation Effects in Topological Matter 
Author(s)  Isobe, Hiroki 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XII, 136 p. 46 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis elucidates electron correlation effects in topological matter whose electronic states hold nontrivial topological properties robust against small perturbations. In addition to a comprehensive introduction to topological matter, this thesis provides a new perspective on correlated topological matter. The book comprises three subjects, in which electron correlations in different forms are considered. The first focuses on Coulomb interactions for massless Dirac fermions. Using a perturbative approach, the author reveals emergent Lorentz invariance in a lowenergy limit and discusses how to probe the Lorentz invariance experimentally. The second subject aims to show a principle for synthesizing topological insulators with common, light elements. The interplay between the spin???orbit interaction and electron correlation is considered, and Hund's rule and electron filling are consequently found to play a key role for a strong spin???orbit interaction important for topological insulators. The last subject is classification of topological crystalline insulators in the presence of electron correlation. Unlike noninteracting topological insulators, such two and threedimensional correlated insulators with mirror symmetry are demonstrated to be characterized, respectively, by the Z4 and Z8 group by using the bosonization technique and a geometrical consideration
