Journal description

The European Physical Journal C Particles and Fields A merger of Il Nuovo Cimento A and Zeitschrift für Physik C The physics of elementary particles lies at the frontier of our understanding of nature. The journal EPJ C publishes most recent experimental and theoretical results obtained in this field. Experimental results come from the high energy physics laboratories such as CERN (Switzerland) DESY (Germany) SLAC and Fermilab (both USA) and KEK (Japan) with their accelerators and experimentral facilities and also from nonaccelerator laboratories such as Kamioka (Japan) Gran-Sasso (Italy) and others. Theoretical topics include studies and tests of the Standard Model computer simulations of Quantum Chromodynamics search for the Higgs particle and supersymmetry and the investigation of new ideas beyond the standard model. Experimental Physics e + e - experiments Lepton nucleon scattering Hadron hadron scattering B physics Neutrino physics Non-accelerator experiments High-energy nuclear reactions Theoretical Physics The standard model: Electroweak interactions and QCD Nonperturbative strong interactions Soft hadron physics Lattice field theory High temperature QCD and heavy ion physics Beyond the standard model Astroparticle physics and cosmology Quantum field theory

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we investigate the properties of tunneling spectrum from weakly isolated horizon(WIH). We find that there are correlations among Hawking radiations from weakly isolated horizon, the information can be carried out in terms of correlations between sequential emissions, and the radiation is an entropy conservation process. We generalize Refs.[11-13]' results to a more general spacetime. Through revisiting the calculation of tunneling spectrum of weakly isolated horizon, we find that Ref.[12]'s requirement that radiating particles have the same angular momenta of unit mass as that of black hole is not needed, and the energy and angular momenta of emitting particles are very arbitrary which should be restricted only by keeping the cosmic censorship of black hole.

    ABSTRACT: In this note, we consider the Landau gauge in the continuum formulation. Our purposes are twofold. Firstly, we try to work out the consequences of the recently derived Cucchieri-Mendes bounds on the inverse Faddeev operator at the level of the path integral quantization. Secondly, we give an explicit (renormalizable) prescription to implement the so-called Landau \(B\) -gauges as introduced by Maas.

    ABSTRACT: We consider the ghost-condensate model of dark energy with a generic potential term. The inclusion of the potential is shown to give greater freedom in realising the phantom regime. The self-consistency of the analysis is demonstrated using WMAP7 + BAO + Hubble data.

    ABSTRACT: A dynamical analysis of a spherically symmetric collapsing star surrounded by a locally anisotropic environment under an expansion-free condition is presented in \(f(R,T)\) gravity, where \(R\) corresponds to the Ricci scalar and \(T\) stands for the trace of the energy momentum tensor. The modified field equations and evolution equations are reconstructed in the framework of \(f(R,T)\) gravity. In order to acquire the collapse equation we implement the perturbation on all matter variables and dark source components comprising the viable \(f(R,T)\) model. The instability range is described in the Newtonian and post-Newtonian approximation. It is observed that the unequal stresses and density profile define the instability range rather than the adiabatic index. However, the physical quantities are constrained to maintain positivity of the energy density and a stable stellar configuration.

    ABSTRACT: We present a novel method for detecting the relic neutrino background that takes advantage of structured quantum degeneracy to amplify the drag force from neutrinos scattering off a detector. Developing this idea, we present a characterization of the present day relic neutrino distribution in an arbitrary frame, including the influence of neutrino mass and neutrino reheating by \(e^+e^-\) annihilation. We present explicitly the neutrino velocity and de Broglie wavelength distributions for the case of an Earthbound observer. Considering that relic neutrinos could exhibit quantum liquid features at the present day temperature and density, we discuss the impact of neutrino fluid correlations on the possibility of resonant detection.

    ABSTRACT: M87 is a giant radio galaxy with FR-I morphology. It underwent three episodes of TeV flaring in recent years with the strongest one in April 2010 which was jointly monitored by MAGIC, VERITAS and H.E.S.S. We explain its spectral energy distribution in the energy range 0.3-5 TeV by assuming that the flaring occurs in the innermost region of the jet. In this region the low energy SSC photons serve as the target for the Fermi-accelerated high energy protons of energy \({\le }30\) TeV to form a delta resonance. The TeV photons are produced from the subsequent decay of the delta resonance to neutral pions. In this scenario the observed TeV flux of April 2010 flare is fitted very well.
