Physics Beyond the Standard Model

Fundamental symmetry tests of baryon number violation in low-energy experiments can test beyond the Standard Model explanations of the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe.
Neutron-antineutron oscillations are predicted to be a signature of many baryogenesis mechanisms involving low-scale baryon number violation.
This work presents the first complete lattice quantum chromodynamics...

Proton decay is one of possible signatures of baryon number violation, which has to exist to explain the baryon asymmetry and the existence of nuclear matter. Proton decays must be mediated through effective low-energy baryon number violating operators made of three quarks and a lepton. We calculate matrix elements of these operators between an initial proton and various final pseudoscalar...

I will present an update on our calculations of nEDM due to the quark and gluon chromo-EDM operators, as well as the QCD Theta-term with which these mix. The calculations are being done by extrapolating to zero momentum transfer the F3 form factor of a vector current calculated using valence and disconnected Wilson-clover quarks on HISQ background configurations generate by the MILC collaboration.

In this talk we present a numerical lattice study of a SU(3) gauge model where a SU(2) doublet of non-Abelian strongly interacting fermions is coupled to a complex scalar field doublet via a Yukawa and a Wilson-like term. Despite the presence of these two chiral breaking operators in the Lagrangian, the model enjoys an exact symmetry, acting on all fields, which prevents UV power divergent...

Numerical evidence for a new dynamical mechanism of elementary particle mass generation has been found by lattice simulation in a simplified SU(3) gauge model where a SU(2) doublet of strongly interacting fermions is coupled to a complex scalar field doublet via a Yukawa and a Wilson-like term.
We point out that if, as a next step towards the construction of a realistic...

We present the results of a numerical investigation of SU(2) gauge theory with $N_f = 3/2$ flavours of fermions, corresponding to 3 Majorana fermions, which transform in the adjoint representation of the gauge group. At two values of the gauge coupling, the masses of bound states are considered as a function of the PCAC quark mass. The scaling of bound states masses indicates an infrared...

We report on the status of our program to simulate Sp(2N) gauge theories on the lattice. Motivated by the potential realization of SU(4)/Sp(4) ~ SO(6)/SO(5) composite Higgs model, we first consider Sp(4) theories with two Dirac fermion flavors in the fundamental representation. Preliminary results of meson spectrum will be presented along with discussion of the lattice systematics. Toward...

We study a four dmensional lattice model comprising four reduced staggered fermions coupled to a scalar field through an SO(4) invariant interaction. Symmetries
of the lattice theory prohibit fermion mass terms. If we switch of the kinetic
term for the scalar field we obtain a model with a four fermion interaction which has been the focus of several recent lattice investigations. The results...

Proper treatment of redundant gauge degrees of freedom seems necessary for gauge theories with terms that explicitly break gauge symmetry (e.g., in chiral gauge theories with manifestly local formulation of lattice fermions) since these degrees of freedom become manifestly present in such theories. There is also a no-go theorem prohibiting use of BRST formalism in theories with compact gauge...

Equivariant BRST (eBRST) SU(2) gauge theory involves gauge fixing in the SU(2)/U(1) coset space leaving the subgroup U(1) gauge invariant. This can be taken as an alternative formulation of SU(2) lattice gauge theory that uses gauge-fixing, evading the no-go theorem by Neuberger preventing the use of standard BRST. Results will be presented for our numerical simulation of the eBRST gauge...

New results are discussed on the effective field theory of the light 0++ scalar in an important near-conformal strongly coupled BSM gauge theory and its lattice simulations in the sextet fermion representation. Relevant for the composite BSM Higgs, two distinct scenarios are introduced for the emergent light scalar as the composite σ-particle of chiral symmetry breaking or the dilaton of...

The light 0++ scalar can be probed for dilaton signatures in near-conformal gauge theories. A case study is presented for the analysis of the SU(3) gauge theory with two fermions in the two-index symmetric representation (sextet model). It is shown that statistical methods which are based on Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo analysis are important for robust tests of dilaton fingerprints in...

There is a long running controversy over which SU(3) gauge theories with Nf massless fermion flavors in the fundamental representation are conformal, with particular focus on Nf = 12 and 10. In our studies of both theories, we have found no evidence of conformality as shown by an infrared fixed point of the beta function, in direct contradiction to claims by other groups covering the same...

We report new results on the beta-function of an important BSM gauge

representation of the SU(3) color gauge group. The existence of an
infrared fixed point (IRFP) was reported in [PoS LATTICE2016 (2017) 228] at $g^2 \sim 7.0$ of the renormalized gauge coupling. We find a positive and rapidly increasing beta-function in the...

I use the traditional and more recently discovered 1-form discrete 't Hooft anomaly matching conditions and propose a novel realization of the symmetries of SU(2) Yang-Mills theory with two massless adjoint Weyl fermions in the strongly-coupled regime.

In lattice simulations one generally projects correlators over zero
spatial momentum to calculate masses and related spectral data. The sum over space lattice points, however, discards information which may be useful especially in the calculation of disconnected diagrams. I will show that, by using momentum conservation, the calculation of non-zero momentum components of disconnected...

We apply a recently developed dilaton-pion effective field theory for

Numerical data for this theory suggests the existence of a large-mass
regime, where the fermion mass is not small but nevertheless the effective

Some recent beyond Standard Model phenomenology is based on new strongly interacting dynamics
of SU(N) gauge fields coupled to various numbers of fermions. When N=3 these systems are
analogues of QCD, although the fermion masses are typically different from the ones of real world QCD.
Many quantities needed for phenomenology from these
models have been computed on the lattice. We are...

We describe our recent lattice study of the baryon spectrum of SU(4) gauge theory with fully dynamical Wilson-clover fermions in the fundamental and sextet representations. This system is closely related to a model of physics beyond the Standard Model containing a composite Higgs. The model also contains a partially composite top quark, which mixes linearly with a new baryon of SU(4)...

A SU(3) gauge theory with 12 flavors is a model of great interest for beyond the standard model physics. Running RHMC simulations for different masses and betas we study the Fisher zeroes in the vicinity of the endpoint of a line of first order transitions. The pinching of these zeros with respect to increasing volume provide information about a possible unconventional continuum limit. We also...

In $\mathcal{N} = 1$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory the superpartner of the gluon is the gluino, which is a spin 1/2 Majorana particle in the adjoint representation of the gauge group. Combining three gluinos, it is possible to form colour neutral bound states, analogous to baryons in QCD. The correlation functions of the corresponding baryonic operators contain a contribution represented by...

$\mathcal{N}=1$ Supersymmetric QCD (SQCD) is a possible building block of theories beyond the standard model. It describes the interaction between gluons and quarks with their superpartners, gluinos and squarks. Since supersymmetry is

Supersymmetric gauge theories are a popular building block of theories beyond the standard model. We investigate the pure gauge sector of Super-QCD focusing on the bound states, i.e. mesonic gluinoballs, gluino-glueballs and pure glueballs. To improve chiral symmetry as well as supersymmetry at finite lattice spacing, we introduce a deformed Super-Yang-Mills lattice action. It contains a twist...

Composite operators of bare fermion fields evolved along a trajectory on field space by means of flow equations get renormalised multiplicatively. Therefore, even in the case of Wilson fermions, the renormalization of expectation values of fermion operators can be simplified drastically on the lattice. We measure the gluino condensate in N=1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory at non-zero...
