Flavor Physics and the TeV Scale by George W. S. Hou

By George W. S. Hou

This monograph treats the effectiveness of useing style physics in providing probes of the TeV scale, whereas delivering a well timed interface through the rising LHC period. by way of concentrating basically with the TeV-scale connection, a wide a part of the B manufacturing unit output should be bypassed, and emphasis is put on loop-induced techniques, i.e. digital, quantum procedures that probe TeV-scale physics. The experimental point of view is taken, leading to settling on strategies, instead of the theories or types, because the foundation to exploration. Two-thirds of the ebook is for this reason enthusiastic about b -> s or bs <-> sb transitions. The guideline is: except it may be pointed out because the smoking gun, it's higher to stay to the easiest, instead of problematic, clarification of an influence which may demand New Physics. via targeting heavy taste as a probe of TeV-scale physics, technicalities should be hired to unveil their attractiveness, with out getting ensnared in them, whereas aiming for the deeper, higher-scale physics that such probes supply.

This tract originated from a plenary speak on the SUSY 2007 convention in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Introduction to the Physics of Waves

Balancing concise mathematical research with the real-world examples and functional purposes that motivate scholars, this textbook offers a transparent and approachable advent to the physics of waves. the writer exhibits via a wide technique how wave phenomena might be saw in various actual events and explains how their features are associated with particular actual ideas, from Maxwell's equations to Newton's legislation of movement.

Philosophy, Mathematics and Modern Physics: A Dialogue

Lately a brand new discussion has started among the usual sciences and the arts. this is often quite real of physics and philosophy, whose sphere of mutual curiosity accelerated considerably with the arrival of quantum mechanics. between different themes, the dialogue covers the evolution of theories, the function of arithmetic within the actual sciences, the notion and cognition of nature and definitions of area and time.

Molecular Physics and Hypersonic Flows

Molecular Physics and Hypersonic Flows bridges the space among the fluid dynamics and molecular physics groups, emphasizing the function performed via straightforward procedures in hypersonic flows. specifically, the paintings is basically devoted to filling the space among microscopic and macroscopic remedies of the resource phrases to be inserted within the fluid dynamics codes.

This is because the K − N cross section is different from K + N cross section, especially for lower p K , because of the u¯ quark. 7 Fig. 8 fb−1 data [Copyright (2008) by The American Physical Society], where there is a rather small component for B ± → J/ψπ ± 28 2 ¯ Transitions CP Violation in Charmless b → s qq efficiency for K − . This “kaon asymmetry” from detector effect is directly measured in the same data. One enjoys a larger control sample in hadronic production, as compared with B factories.

Especially for OST, where D2 Fortunately, the situation was saved by the SSKT performance, which was at expected levels. It was even slightly better than expected for semileptonic modes. But SSKT was difficult to understand and took time to incorporate into the analysis. Of critical importance is the combined PID of a special TOF, together with d E/d x. Though the discrimination power is not spectacular, but since the K + /K − from b quark fragmentation used to tag the Bs0 / B¯ s0 is relatively slow, both TOF and d E/d x gave the critical 1σ or slightly better discrimination.

It also indicates how the CDF result is slightly on the low side. But, of course, the errors from the unitarity fits were very forgiving to make this point somewhat mute.
