The Feelings of Knowing - Fundamental Interoceptive Patterns (FoK-FIP) is a transdisciplinary theory developed to explain elusive phenomena suspected to exist that do not easily lend themselves to empirical measurement. The FoK-FIP theory posits that specialized self-generated
biomagnetism and “pure mental” process share similarities with the hypot...

We introduce a Python package that provides simple and unified access to a collection of datasets from fundamental physics research—including particle physics, astroparticle physics, and hadron- and nuclear physics—for supervised machine learning studies. The datasets contain hadronic top quarks, cosmic-ray-induced air showers, phase transitions in...

Many researchers are looking into the question about neutrino nature and some of them have given useful results. A discovery that neutrinos are Majorana particles would have profound implications for particle physics and also cosmology. The Majorana character of neutrinos would make possible the neutrinoless double beta decay, a matter creating pro...

Modern cosmology is broadly based on the Cosmological principle, which assumes homogeneity and isotropy as its foundational pillars. Thus, there isn't much debate about the metric (i.e., Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker; FLRW) one should use to describe the cosmic spacetime. But Einstein's equations do not unilaterally constrain the constituents...

We review our efforts in investigating gauge theories with fermions in the adjoint representation of the gauge group by means of numerical simulations. These theories have applications in possible extensions of the standard model of particle physics, being a core part of supersymmetric gauge theories. They also play an important role in uncovering...

The recently developed concept of “entropic defect” is important for understanding the foundations of thermodynamics in space plasma physics, and more generally for systems with physical correlations among their particles. Using this concept, this paper derives the basic formulation of the distribution function of velocities (or kinetic energies) i...

The microphysics of electron and photon propagation in liquid argon is a key component of detector design and calibrations needed to construct and perform measurements within a wide range of particle physics experiments. As experiments grow in scale and complexity, and as the precision of their intended measurements increases, the development of to...

A study of the top-quark interactions via flavour-changing neutral current (FCNC) processes provides an intriguing connection between the heaviest elementary particle of the standard model (SM) of particle physics and the new scalar bosons that are predicted in several notable SM extensions. The production cross sections of the processes with top-s...

The theoretical framework of the neutrino electron excitation at low energies including the screening effect in semiconductor detectors is developed for the first time, both in the Standard Model of particle physics and in the presence of the neutrino magnetic moment. We explore the contribution of the screening effect of semiconductors to the neut...

This report, as part of the 2021 Snowmass Process, summarizes the current status of collider physics at the Energy Frontier, the broad and exciting future prospects identified for the Energy Frontier, the challenges and needs of future experiments, and indicates high priority research areas.

The determination of real-time dynamics of strongly coupled quantum fields is a central goal of modern nuclear and particle physics, which requires insight into quantum field theory beyond the weak-coupling approximation. While lattice QCD has provided vital insights into the non-perturbative static properties of quarks and gluons it hides their re...

In 2021 the Quantum Sensors for the Hidden Sector (QSHS) collaboration was founded in the UK. We received funding as part of the Quantum Technologies for Fundamental Physics programme to develop and demonstrate quantum devices with the potential to detect hidden-sector particles such as axions and dark photons in the ~1μeV/c^2 to ~100μeV/c^2 mass w...

Data driven modelling is vital to many analyses at collider experiments, however the derived inference of physical properties becomes subject to details of the model fitting procedure. This work brings a principled Bayesian picture, based on the marginal likelihood, of both data modelling and signal extraction to a common collider physics scenario....

Presently under construction in Lund, Sweden, the European Spallation Source (ESS) will be the world's brightest neutron source. As such, it has the potential for a particle physics program with a unique reach and which is complementary to that available at other facilities. This paper describes proposed particle physics activities for the ESS. The...

Many experiments in particle physics, in particular in the field of neutrino searches, rely on organic liquid scintillators as target and detection material. The size of these detectors was continously growing in the last decades, up to the kiloton scale. In several cases these detectors are located at sites with enhanced safety requirements such a...

We show that three open questions in particle physics and cosmology: the origin of neutrino mass, the identity of dark matter, and the origin of the baryon asymmetry of the universe can be explained simultaneously in the three-loop seesaw model proposed by Krauss, Nasri, and Trodden. We present an explicit benchmark point in the parameter space tha...

The top quark is the heaviest known elementary particle. Its large mass, close to the scale of electroweak symmetry breaking, hints at a unique role in the Standard Model of particle physics. The study of top quark-antiquark ($t\bar{t}$) production is an important part of the physics programme of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collid...

Bayesian inference with nested sampling requires a likelihood-restricted prior sampling method, which draws samples from the prior distribution that exceed a likelihood threshold. For high-dimensional problems, Markov Chain Monte Carlo derivatives have been proposed. We numerically study ten algorithms based on slice sampling, hit-and-run and diffe...

This is my note on the Standard Model of Particle Physics which I learned by myself for graduate study and thesis work back in 2020. It is not like traditional lecture notes on the topic rather it is more like the way I see the topic.

A common statistical problem in particle physics is to extract the number of samples which originate from a statistical process in an ensemble containing a mix of several contributing processes. The probability density function of each process is usually not exactly known. Barlow and Beeston found an exact likelihood for the problem of fitting binn...

The Standard Model is the best description of nature so far. It has many successes in particle physics. But there are also some limitations. For example, we have already observed neutrino oscillation. The standard model can not give a proper description of this. Lepton flavour mixing is also a very big and interesting puzzle. We also observe parity...

High-energy spin-polarized electron, positron, and \(\gamma\)-photon beams have many significant applications in the study of material properties, nuclear structure, particle physics, and high-energy astrophysics.

Kinematically forbidden channels can set the freeze-out dark matter (DM) relic abundance. These channels are described by DM annihilations into heavier states, which vanish at zero temperature limit, but occur at finite temperatures in the early Universe. For the case that the final state of the forbidden channel is scalar mediators that...

One of the most pressing questions for modern physics is the nature of dark matter (DM). Several efforts have been made to model this elusive kind of matter. The largest fraction of DM cannot be made of any of the known particles of the Standard Model (SM). We focus on brane world theory as a prospective framework for DM candidates beyond the SM of...

In high-energy particle physics, complex Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are needed to compare theory predictions to measurable quantities. Many and large MC samples are needed to be generated to take into account all the systematics. Therefore, the MC statistics (and hence the MC modeling uncertainties) become a limiting factor for most measurements....

We study the dissipation of oscillating scalar backgrounds in a spatially flat Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker universe using non-equilibrium quantum field theory. To be concrete, a Z 2 -symmetric two-scalar model with quartic interactions is used. For quasi-harmonic oscillations, we adopt the multi-scale analysis to obtain analytical...

Gravitational production of massive particles due to cosmic expansion can be significant during the inflationary and reheating period of the Universe. If the particle also has non-gravitational interactions that do not significantly affect its production, numerous observational probes open up, including cosmological probes. In this work,...

We consider a minimal non-supersymmetric SO(10) Grand Unified Theory (GUT) model that can reproduce the observed fermionic masses and mixing parameters of the Standard Model. We calculate the scales of spontaneous symmetry breaking from the GUT to the Standard Model gauge group using two-loop renormalisation group equations. This procedur...

Entanglement has become a hot topic in nuclear and particle physics, although many physicists are not sure they know what it means. We maintain that an era of understanding and using quantum mechanics on a dramatically new basis has arrived. We review a viewpoint that treats the subject as being primarily descriptive and completely free of the inte...

We present a study on the radiation tolerance and timing properties of 3D diamond detectors fabricated by laser engineering on synthetic Chemical Vapor Deposited (CVD) plates. We evaluated the radiation hardness of the sensors using Charge Collection Efficiency (CCE) measurements after neutron fluences up to 1016 n/cm2 (1 MeV equivalent.) The radia...

The simulation of particle physics data is a fundamental but computationally intensive ingredient for physics analysis at the Large Hadron Collider, where observational set-valued data is generated conditional on a set of incoming particles. To accelerate this task, we present a novel generative model based on a graph neural network and slot-attent...

Future $c$-$\tau$ factories are natural places to study extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics (SM) with new long-lived feebly interacting particles light enough to be produced in electron-positron collisions. We investigate prospects of these machines in exploring such extensions emphasizing the role of polarized beams in getting rid...

This manual describes the Pythia event generator, the most recent version of an evolving physics tool used to answer fundamental questions in particle physics. The program is most often used to generate high-energy-physics collision “events”, i.e. sets of particles produced in association with the collision of two incoming high-energy particles, bu...

Based on information retrieval and interpretation of results, a summary of state-of-art detection methods could be achieved, and future progress and be predicted. Although the axion suffices for its properties of hidden nature and impact on grav...

The notes expose the reader to the Feynman diagram constructs underpinning QED, weak, and strong interactions. More so, the notes leave the reader with an understanding of why particle physics experiments led to the theories we have for weak and strong interactions, and why the particle spectrum is organized into sundry Mendeleevian multiplets base...

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an excellent diffuse reflector widely used in light collection systems for particle physics experiments. In noble element systems, it is often coated with tetraphenyl butadiene (TPB) to allow detection of vacuum ultraviolet scintillation light. In this work this dependence is investigated for PTFE coated with TPB i...

The assessment of the absolute \(\nu\) mass scale is a crucial challenge in today’s particle physics and cosmology.

High-resolution, spatially-distributed process-based models are a well-established tool to explore complex watershed processes and how they may evolve under a changing climate. While these models are powerful, calibrating them can be difficult because they are costly to run and have many unknown parameters. To solve this problem, we need a state-of...

We further perform rigorous error analysis in order t...

High-quality simulated data is crucial for particle physics discoveries. Therefore, parton shower algorithms are a major building block of the data synthesis in event generator programs. However, the core algorithms used to generate parton showers have barely changed since the 1980s. With quantum computers’ rapid and continuous developmen...

Many theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics predict the existence of axionlike particles (ALPs) that mix with photons in the presence of a magnetic field.

Optimizing such interpretations requires the identification of observables that exhibit the highest possible sensit...

First, strong and weak interactions as short-range should be unified. Except different action ranges their main character is: strong interactions are attraction each other, and weak interactions are mutual repulsion and derive decay. We propose a new method on their unification, whose coupling constants are negative and positive, respectively. Furt...
