CP asymmetry in charged Higgs decays to chargino-neutralino pairs

Frank, Mariana
Turan, İsmail
We analyze the charge-parity (CP) asymmetry in the charged Higgs boson decays to chargino-neutralino pairs, H-+/- -> chi(+/-)(i)chi(0)(j), i = 1, 2, j = 1,...,4. We show first that these modes have a large branching ratio for m(H)(+/-) greater than or similar to 600 GeV. We use Cutkosky rules to obtain the analytical formulas needed for the evaluation of the asymmetry under consideration. We then calculate the CP asymmetry in chargino-neutralino decays by including supersymmetric mass bounds, as well as constraints from b -> s gamma, (g - 2)(mu), Delta rho and electric dipole moments. Finally, we discuss observability of the asymmetry at the LHC by calculating the number of required charged Higgs events to observe the asymmetry for each decay channel. We show that the inclusion of constraints considerably reduces the projected CP asymmetry, and that the optimal channel for observing the asymmetry is H-+/- -> chi(+/-)(1)chi(0)(2).


CP asymmetry in charged Higgs decays in the MSSM
Frank, Mariana; Turan, İsmail (American Physical Society (APS), 2007-07-01)
We discuss and compare the charge-parity (CP) asymmetry in the charged Higgs boson decays H-->(u) over bar (i)d(j) for the second and third generation quarks in the minimal supersymmetric standard model. As part of the analysis, we derive some general analytical formulas for the imaginary parts of two-point and three-point scalar one-loop integrals and use them for calculating vectorial- and tensorial-type integrals needed for the problem under consideration. We find that, even though each decay mode has a ...
Scalar-meson production in nucleon-nucleon collisions near threshold
Rekalo, MP; Tomasi-Gustafsson, E (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-12-01)
We establish the model-independent spin structure of the matrix elements for the near-threshold scalar-meson production in pp and np collisions, when the final particles are emitted in S-state. Polarization phenomena are derived in a general form. The properties of the t-channel dynamics, which is based on different meson exchanges, are studied in terms of the s-channel parametrization of the matrix element. The predictions of a model, based on pi + sigma exchanges are also presented.
Angular coefficients of Z bosons produced in pp collisions at root S=8 TeV and decaying to mu(+)mu(-) as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2015-11-01)
Measurements of the five most significant angular coefficients, A(0) through A(4), for Z bosons produced in pp collisions at root S = 8 TeV and decaying to mu(+)mu(-) are presented as a function of the transverse momentum and rapidity of the Z boson. The integrated luminosity of the dataset collected with the CMS detector at the LHC corresponds to 19.7 fb(-1). These measurements provide comprehensive information about the Z boson production mechanisms, and are compared to the QCD predictions at leading orde...
Noncommutative nonlinear sigma models and integrability
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-09-01)
We first review the result that the noncommutative principal chiral model has an infinite tower of conserved currents and discuss the special case of the noncommutative CP1 model in some detail. Next, we focus our attention to a submodel of the CP1 model in the noncommutative spacetime A(theta)(R2+1). By extending a generalized zero-curvature representation to A(theta)(R2+1) we discuss its integrability and construct its infinitely many conserved currents. A supersymmetric principal chiral model with and wi...
Nuclear modification factor of D-0 mesons in PbPb collisions at root s(NN)=5.02 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2018-07-01)
The transverse momentum (p(T)) spectrum of prompt D-0 mesons and their antiparticles has been measured via the hadronic decay channels D-0 -> K- pi(+) and (D) over bar (0) -> K+ pi(-) in pp and PbPb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV per nucleon pair with the CMS detector at the LHC. The measurement is performed in the D-0 meson p(T) range of 2-100GeV/c and in the rapidity range of vertical bar y vertical bar < 1. The pp (PbPb) dataset used for this analysis corresponds to an integrated lumin...
