We perform a complete and detailed analysis of the flavor changing neutral current rare top quark decays t -> cl(+)l(-) and t -> c nu(i)(nu) over bar (i) at one-loop level in the standard model, two Higgs doublet models (I and II), and in minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). The branching ratios are very small in all models, O(10(-14)), except for the case of the unconstrained MSSM, where they can reach O(10(-6)) for e(+)e(-), mu(+)mu(-), and nu i (nu) over bari, and O(10(-5)) for tau(+)tau(-). This branching ratio is comparable to the ones for t -> cV, cH. We also study the production rates of single top and the forward-backward asymmetry in e(+)e(-)-> t (c) over bar and comment on the observability of such a signal at the International Linear Collider.

Rare decay of the top t -> cgg in the standard model
Eilam, G; Frank, M; Turan, İsmail (American Physical Society (APS), 2006-03-01)
We calculate the one-loop flavor changing neutral current top quark decay t -> cgg in the standard model. We demonstrate that the rate for t -> cgg exceeds the rate for a single gluon emission t -> cg by about 2 orders of magnitude, while the rate for t -> cq (q) over bar q=u is slightly smaller than for t -> cg.
Single top production via gluon fusion at CERN LHC
Eilam, Gad; Frank, Mariana; Turan, İsmail (American Physical Society (APS), 2006-08-01)
We calculate the one-loop flavor violating top quark decay t -> cgg in the minimal supersymmetric standard model. We discuss the branching ratios obtained with minimal flavor violation, as well as with soft-supersymmetry induced general flavor violation. Based on this rate we calculate the cross section for the single top quark production via gluon fusion, gg -> t (c) over bar, and evaluate its contribution to the cross section for single top quark production in pp collisions at the Large Hadron Collider.

Radiative decays of decuplet to octet baryons in light cone QCD
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Özpineci, Altuğ (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-02)
The radiative decays of decuplet to octet baryons are analyzed within the light cone QCD sum rules framework. The electromagnetic transition form factors for these decays are calculated at q(2) = 0 up to twist-4 accuracy for photon wave functions and including first order strange quark mass corrections. A comparison of our results with predictions of lattice theory and existing experimental data is presented. (c) 2005 Published by Elsevier B.V.
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...
Radiative decay of the X(3872) as a mixed molecule-charmonium state in effective field theory
Cincioglu, E.; Özpineci, Altuğ (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-10)
Assuming that X(3872) is a mixture between 2P charmonium and (D) over barD* molecular states with J(PC) = 1(++), an analysis of X(3872) radiative decays into J/psi gamma and psi(2S)gamma is presented. The modification of the radiative branching ratio due to possible constructive or destructive interferences between the meson-loop and the short-distance contact term, which is modeled by a charm quark loop, is shown. The model predictions are shown to be compatible with the experimentally determined ratio of ...
