Title  A Search for Displaced Leptons in the ATLAS Detector 
Author(s)  Horyn, Lesya 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVI, 146 p. 75 illus., 68 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents a search for longlived particles decaying into displaced electrons and/or muons with large impact parameters. This signature provides unique sensitivity to the production of theoretical leptonpartners, sleptons. These particles are a feature of supersymmetric theories, which seek to address unanswered questions in nature. The signature searched for in this thesis is difficult to identify, and in fact, this is the first time it has been probed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It covers a longstanding gap in coverage of possible new physics signatures. This thesis describes the special reconstruction and identification algorithms used to select leptons with large impact parameters and the details of the background estimation. The results are consistent with background, so limits on slepton masses and lifetimes in this model are calculated at 95% CL, drastically improving on the previous best limits from the Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP)

Title  The ReadOut Controller ASIC for the ATLAS Experiment at LHC 
Author(s)  Popa, Stefan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 198 p. 80 illus., 56 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the complete chain from specifications to reallife deployment of the Read Out Controller (ROC) ASIC for the ATLAS Experiment at LHC, including the design of the FPGAbased setup used for prototype validation and mass testing of the approximately 6000 chips. Longlasting experiments like the ATLAS at the LHC undergo regular upgrades to improve their performance over time. One of such upgrades of the ATLAS was the replacement of a fraction of muon detectors in the forward rapidities to provide muchimproved reconstruction precision and discrimination from background protons. This new instrumentation (New Small Wheel) is equipped with customdesigned, radiationhard, ondetector electronics with the Read Out Controller chip being a missioncritical element. The chip acts as a clock and control signals distributor and a concentrator, buffer, filter and realtime processor of detector data packets. The described and deployed FPGAbased test setup emulates the asynchronous chip context and employs optimizations and automatic clock and data synchronization. The chip's tolerance to nuclear radiation was evaluated by recording its operation while controlled ultrafast neutron beams were incident to its silicon die. Predictions for the operating environment are made. A proposed implementation of an FPGA Integrated Logic Analyzer that mitigates the observed limitations and constraints of the existing ones is included

Title  Modern Analytic Methods for Computing Scattering Amplitudes : With Application to TwoLoop FiveParticle Processes 
Author(s)  Zoia, Simone 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XV, 207 p. 14 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work presents some essential techniques that constitute the modern strategy for computing scattering amplitudes. It begins with an introductory chapter to fill the gap between a standard QFT course and the latest developments in the field. The author then tackles the main bottleneck: the computation of the loop Feynman integrals. The most efficient technique for their computation is the method of the differential equations. This is discussed in detail, with a particular focus on the mathematical aspects involved in the derivation of the differential equations and their solution. Ample space is devoted to the special functions arising from the differential equations, to their analytic properties, and to the mathematical techniques which allow us to handle them systematically. The thesis also addresses the application of these techniques to a cuttingedge problem of importance for the physics programme of the Large Hadron Collider: fiveparticle amplitudes at twoloop order. It presents the first analytic results for complete twoloop fiveparticle amplitudes, in supersymmetric theories and QCD. The techniques discussed here open the door to precision phenomenology for processes of phenomenological interest, such as threephoton, threejet, and diphoton + jet production.sses of phenomenological interest, such as threephoton, threejet, and diphoton + jet production

Title  Perturbative Aspects of the Deconfinement Transition : Beyond the FaddeevPopov Paradigm 
Author(s)  Reinosa, Urko 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 270 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an original view of the color confinement/deconfinement transition that occurs in nonabelian gauge theories at high temperature and/or densities. It is grounded on the fact that the standard FaddeevPopov gaugefixing procedure in the Landau gauge is incomplete. The proper analysis of the low energy properties of nonabelian theories in this gauge requires, therefore, the extension of the gaugefixing procedure, beyond the FaddeevPopov recipe. The author reviews various applications of one such extension, based on the CurciFerrari model, with a special focus on the confinement/deconfinement transition, first in the case of pure YangMills theory, and then, in a formal regime of Quantum Chromodynamics where all quarks are considered heavy. He shows that most qualitative aspects and also many quantitative features of the deconfinement transition can be accounted for within the model, with only one additional parameter. Moreover, these features emerge in a systematic and controlled perturbative expansion, as opposed to what would happen in a perturbative expansion within the FaddeevPopov model. The book is also intended as a thorough and pedagogical introduction to background field gauge techniques at finite temperature and/or density. In particular, it offers a new and promising view on the way these techniques might be applied at finite temperature. The material aims at graduate students or researchers who wish to deepen their understanding of the confinement/deconfinement transition from an analytical perspective. Basic knowledge of gauge theories at finite temperature is required, although the text is designed in a selfcontained manner, with most concepts and tools introduced when needed. At the end of each chapter, a series of exercises is proposed to master the subject

Title  Quantum Science : The Frontier of Physics and Chemistry 
Author(s)  Onishi, Taku 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  IX, 496 p. 138 illus., 90 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book focuses on recent topics of quantum science in both physics and chemistry. Until now, quantum science has not been fully discussed from the interdisciplinary vantage points of both physics and chemistry. This book, however, is written not only for theoretical physicists and chemists, but also for experimentalists in the fields of physical chemistry and condensed matter physics, as collaboration and interplay between construction of quantum theory, and experimentation has become more important. Tips for starting new types of research projects will be found in an understanding of cuttingedge quantum science. In Part I, quantum electronic structures are explained in cases of strongly correlated copper oxides and heavy elements. In Part II, quantum molecular dynamics is investigated by computational approaches and molecular beam experiments. In Part III, after lithium problem in big bang nucleosynthesis scenario is considered using supersymmetric standard model, quantum theories in atomic and molecular systems are reviewed. Finally, in Part IV, the development of quantum computational method is introduced.

Title  What is the i?? for the Smatrix? 
Author(s)  Hannesdottir, Holmfridur Sigridar;Mizera, Sebastian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  VI, 165 p. 39 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a modern perspective on the analytic structure of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory, with the goal of understanding and exploiting consequences of unitarity, causality, and locality. It focuses on the question: Can the Smatrix be complexified in a way consistent with causality? The affirmative answer has been well understood since the 1960s, in the case of 2???2 scattering of the lightest particle in theories with a mass gap at low momentum transfer, where the Smatrix is analytic everywhere except at normalthreshold branch cuts. We ask whether an analogous picture extends to realistic theories, such as the Standard Model, that include massless fields, UV/IR divergences, and unstable particles. Especially in the presence of light states running in the loops, the traditional i?? prescription for approaching physical regions might break down, because causality requirements for the individual Feynman diagrams can be mutually incompatible. We demonstrate that such analyticity problems are not in contradiction with unitarity. Instead, they should be thought of as finitewidth effects that disappear in the idealized 2???2 scattering amplitudes with no unstable particles, but might persist at higher multiplicity. To fix these issues, we propose an i??like prescription for deforming branch cuts in the space of Mandelstam invariants without modifying the analytic properties of the physical amplitude. This procedure results in a complex strip around the real part of the kinematic space, where the Smatrix remains causal. We illustrate all the points on explicit examples, both symbolically and numerically, in addition to giving a pedagogical introduction to the analytic properties of the perturbative Smatrix from a modern point of view. To help with the investigation of related questions, we introduce a number of tools, including holomorphic cutting rules, new approaches to dispersion relations, as well as formulae for local behavior of Feynman integrals near branch points. This book is well suited for anyone with knowledge of quantum field theory at a graduate level who wants to become familiar with the complexanalytic structure of Feynman integrals
