In this paper we analyze the exclusive photoproduction of the D-meson pairs with large invariant mass. We perform evaluations in the collinear factorization framework and in the leading order of the strong coupling αs, expressing the cross section in terms of generalized parton distributions (GPDs) of different parton flavors in the proton. We focu...

We derive the equations of motion for the bulk-to-boundary propagators of the anti-de Sitter (AdS) boson and fermion fields with arbitrary total angular momentum J in a soft-wall AdS/QCD model and solve it analytically. It provides the opportunity to study transition form factors induced by these bulk-to-boundary propagators, both for on-shell and...

Heavy and light quarks produced in high-pT partonic collisions radiate differently. Heavy quarks regenerate their color field, stripped-off in the hard reaction, much faster than the light ones and radiate a significantly smaller fraction of the initial quark energy. This peculiar feature of heavy-quark jets leads to a specific shape of the fragmen...

We built an extended 2HDM theory with a spontaneously broken $U(1) _{X}$ global symmetry, where the tree level Universal Seesaw Mechanism generates the mass hierarchy of the Standard Model charged fermions and the Zee-Babu mechanism produces tiny active neutrino masses. The third family of SM charged fermions gets tree level masses from Yukawa inte...

The renormalization group equations of massive $\mathcal{N}=1$ supersymmetric quantum electrodynamics (SQED) are studied, using the functional renormalization group approach. Applying a supercovariant derivative expansion of the fields, we compute the non-perturbative beta function. In the local potential approximation, we verify the exact NSVZ $\b...

In these proceedings we present our results on the exclusive photoproduction of $J/\psi\,\eta_{c}$ pairs in the collinear factorization framework. We argue that the process might be used as a complementary channel for studying the generalized parton distributions (GPDs) of gluons. We provide numerical estimates for the cross-section in the kinemati...

Nearly ten years ago, Kang, Ma, Qiu, and Sterman derived an evolution equation for a $Q\bar{Q}$ pair fragmenting into a quarkonium. In this study we explore the consequence of this evolution for the color-evaporation model, focusing on $J/\psi$ transverse-momentum ($p_t$) distributions in proton-proton collisions. We show that, as expected, it soft...

In this paper we analyze the photoproduction of heavy quarkonia pairs which include b -quarks, such as $$B_{c}^{+}B_{c}^{-}$$ B c + B c - -mesons or charmonium-bottomonium pairs. Compared to charmonia pair production, these channels get contributions only from some subsets of diagrams, and thus allow for a better theoretical understanding of differ...

We present a Left-Right symmetric model that provides an explanation for the mass hierarchy of the charged fermions within the framework of the Standard Model. This explanation is achieved through the utilization of both tree-level and radiative seesaw mechanisms. In this model, the tiny masses of the light active neutrinos are generated via a thre...

The anomalous excess of small-kT photons radiated along with multi-hadron production, is challenging the physics community over four decades, but no solution has been proposed so far. We argue that the problem is rooted in the comparison with an incorrect model, usually called bremsstrahlung model. It is believed to be an extension of the Low theor...

The principle of maximum conformality (PMC) is used to remove uncertainties from the renormalization scale and the renormalization scheme, removing unnecessary systematic errors for high-precision pQCD predictions. In this paper, we will use PMC to improve the determination of the decay width of the W boson in hadrons, working the corrections comin...

The relation between the polar and running heavy quark masses to order $\mathcal{O}\left(\alpha_s^{4}\right)$ in perturbative quantum chromodynamics (pQCD) can be obtained with the help of the Principle of Maximum Conformity (PMC), which is a formalism that provides a rigorous method for eliminating renormalization scale and scheme ambiguities for...

In this proceeding we discuss different mechanisms of open-heavy flavor meson production which contribute to inclusive and single diffractive cross-sections.
