Title: Search for gaugemediated supersymmetry in events with at least one photon and missing transverse momentum in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeVAuthors: CMS CollaborationComments: Submitted to Phys. Lett. B. All the figures and tables can be found at this http URL (CMS Public Pages)Subjects: High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
A search for gaugemediated supersymmetry (SUSY) in final states with photons and large missing transverse momentum is presented. The data sample of pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV was collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{1}$. Data are compared with models in which the lightest neutralino has bino or winolike components, resulting in decays to photons and gravitinos, where the gravitinos escape detection. The event selection is optimized for both electroweak (EWK) and strong production SUSY scenarios. The observed data are consistent with standard model predictions, and limits are set in the context of a general gauge mediation model in which gaugino masses up to 980 GeV are excluded at 95% confidence level. Gaugino masses below 780 and 950 GeV are excluded in two simplified models with EWK production of massdegenerate charginos and neutralinos. Stringent limits are set on simplified models based on gluino and squark pair production, excluding gluino (squark) masses up to 2100 (1750) GeV depending on the assumptions made for the decay modes and intermediate particle masses. This analysis sets the highest mass limits to date in the studied EWK models, and in the considered strong production models when the mass difference between the gauginos and the squarks or gluinos is small.

Neutrinos interact only very weakly, so they are extremely penetrating. However, the theoretical neutrinonucleon interaction cross section rises with energy such that, at energies above 40 TeV, neutrinos are expected to be absorbed as they pass through the Earth. Experimentally, the cross section has been measured only at the relatively low energies (below 400 GeV) available at neutrino beams from accelerators \cite{Agashe:2014kda, Formaggio:2013kya}. Here we report the first measurement of neutrino absorption in the Earth, using a sample of 10,784 energetic upwardgoing neutrinoinduced muons observed with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. The flux of highenergy neutrinos transiting long paths through the Earth is attenuated compared to a reference sample that follows shorter trajectories through the Earth. Using a fit to the twodimensional distribution of muon energy and zenith angle, we determine the cross section for neutrino energies between 6.3 TeV and 980 TeV, more than an order of magnitude higher in energy than previous measurements. The measured cross section is $1.30^{+0.21}_{0.19}$ (stat.) $^{+0.39}_{0.43}$ (syst.) times the prediction of the Standard Model \cite{CooperSarkar:2011pa}, consistent with the expectation for charged and neutral current interactions. We do not observe a dramatic increase in the cross section, expected in some speculative models, including those invoking new compact dimensions \cite{AlvarezMuniz:2002ga} or the production of leptoquarks \cite{Romero:2009vu}.

Title: Search for $t\bar{t}H$ and $tH$ production with $H\to γγ$ at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV with the ATLAS experimentAuthors: Isabel Nitsche (for the ATLAS Collaboration)Comments: 4 pages, 2 figures, TOP2017 conferenceSubjects: High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
The measurement of the Yukawa coupling of the top quark is one important goal of particle physics after the discovery of the Higgs boson. There are two processes that offer the possibility to directly measure the Yukawa coupling of the top quark at the LHC. These are the production of a topantitopquark pair in association with a Higgs boson via the strong interaction ($t\bar{t}H$) and the electroweak production of a single top quark and a Higgs boson ($tH$). In the Standard Model, the cross section for $tH$ production is much smaller than the cross section for $t\bar{t}H$ production as there is a destructive interference between diagrams where the Higgs boson is radiated off a top quark and diagrams where it is radiated off a $W$ boson. Despite the reduced cross section, this interference provides additional sensitivity to the sign of the Yukawa coupling.
The considered Higgs boson decay into photons is promising due to the good energy resolution of the photons and the relatively small backgrounds. But it is also challenging due to the small branching ratio.
The analysis strategy and the latest results on the search for $t\bar{t}H/tH$ production in the diphoton channel at the ATLAS experiment are presented.  [4] arXiv:1711.08293 [pdf, ps, other]

The process $e^+ e^ \to D_{s}^{*+} D_{s0}^{*}(2317)+c.c.$ is observed for the first time with the data sample of 567~pb$^{1}$ collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII collider at a centerofmass energy $\sqrt{s} = 4.6$~GeV. The statistical significance of the $D_{s0}^{*}(2317)$ signal is $5.8\sigma$ and the mass is measured to be ($2318.3\pm 1.2\pm 1.2$)~MeV/$c^{2}$. The absolute branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(D_{s0}^{*}(2317)\to \pi^0 D_{s}^{})$ is measured as $1.00^{+0.00}_{0.14}\pm 0.14$ for the first time. The uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.

Title: A measurement of the softdrop jet mass in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV with the ATLAS detectorAuthors: ATLAS CollaborationComments: 15 pages plus author list + cover pages (33 pages total), 4 figures, submitted to PRL, All figures including auxiliary figures are available at this https URLSubjects: High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
Calculations of jet substructure observables that are accurate beyond leadinglogarithm accuracy have recently become available. Such observables are significant not only for probing the collinear regime of QCD that is largely unexplored at a hadron collider, but also for improving the understanding of jet substructure properties that are used in many studies at the Large Hadron Collider. This Letter documents a measurement of the first jet substructure quantity at a hadron collider to be calculated at nexttonexttoleadinglogarithm accuracy. The normalized, differential crosssection is measured as a function of $log_{10}{\rho^2}$, where $\rho$ is the ratio of the softdrop mass to the ungroomed jet transverse momentum. This quantity is measured in dijet events from 32.9 fb$^{1}$ of $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV protonproton collisions recorded by the ATLAS detector. The data are unfolded to correct for detector effects and compared to precise QCD calculations and leadinglogarithm particlelevel Monte Carlo simulations.

Title: Automated QCD and Electroweak Corrections with SherpaAuthors: Steffen SchumannComments: proceedings for International Workshop on Top Quark Physics, Braga, Portugal, September 1722, 2017Subjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
Precise theoretical predictions are vital for the interpretation of Standard Model measurements and facilitate conclusive searches for New Physics phenomena at the LHC. In this contribution I highlight some of the ongoing efforts in the framework of the Sherpa event generator to provide accurate and realistic simulations of Standard Model production processes. This includes the automated evaluation of NLO QCD and NLO EW corrections and their consistent consideration in the partonshower evolution of scattering events. Particular emphasis is given to examples and applications involving the production of top quarks.

Title: Hadron tomography by generalized distribution amplitudes in pionpair production process $γ^* γ\rightarrow π^0 π^0 $ and gravitational form factors for pionComments: 26 pages, 21 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex); High Energy Physics  Lattice (heplat); Nuclear Theory (nuclth)
Hadron tomography can be investigated by threedimensional structure functions such as generalized parton distributions (GPDs), transversemomentumdependent parton distributions, and generalized distribution amplitudes (GDAs). Here, we extract the GDAs, which are $s$$t$ crossed quantities of the GPDs, from crosssection measurements of hadronpair production process $\gamma^* \gamma \rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0$ at KEKB. This work is the first attempt to obtain the GDAs from the actual experimental data. The GDAs are expressed by a number of parameters and they are determined from the data of $\gamma^* \gamma \rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0$ by including intermediate scalar and tensormeson contributions to the cross section. Our results indicate that the dependence of partonmomentum fraction $z$ in the GDAs is close to the asymptotic one. The timelike gravitational form factors $\Theta_1$ and $\Theta_2$ are obtained from our GDAs, and they are converted to the spacelike ones by the dispersion relation. From the spacelike $\Theta_1$ and $\Theta_2$, gravitational densities of the pion are calculated. Then, we obtained the mass (energy) radius and the mechanical (pressure and shear force) radius from $\Theta_2$ and $\Theta_1$, respectively. They are calculated as $\sqrt {\langle r^2 \rangle_{\text{mass}}} =0.56 \sim 0.69$ fm, whereas the mechanical radius is larger $\sqrt {\langle r^2 \rangle_{\text{mech}}} =1.45 \sim 1.56$ fm. This is the first report on the gravitational radius of a hadron from actual experimental measurements. It is interesting to find the possibility that the gravitational mass and mechanical radii could be different from the experimental charge radius $\sqrt {\langle r^2 \rangle_{\text{charge}}} =0.672 \pm 0.008$ fm for the charged pion. There is a byproduct from our analysis that $f_0 (980)$ is not likely to be a $q\bar q$type meson in comparison with the KEKB data.

Title: Momentum transfer dependence of the hadron GPDs and Compton form factorsAuthors: O.V. SelyuginComments: 6 pages; 8 figures; Talk on the XVII Workshop "High Energy Spin Physics  DSPIN17", Dubna, Russis, September 1115 (2017)Subjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
The generalized parton distributions (GPDs) of the meson and nucleon at small and large values of the momentum transfer were determined on the basis of the comparative analysis of different sets of experimental data of electromagnetic form factors of the proton and neutron, using the different sets of the parton distribution functions (PDFs). As a result, different form factors of the nucleons and meson were calculated. The tdependence of these form factors was checked up in the description of the nucleonnucleon and mesonnucleon elastic scattering and the differential cross sections of the real Compton scattering.

Title: Tetraquark mixing framework for isoscalar resonances in light mesonsComments: 16 pages, 2 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex); Nuclear Theory (nuclth)
Recently, a tetraquark mixing framework has been proposed for light mesons and applied more or less successfully to the isovector resonances, $a_0(980), a_0(1450)$, as well as to the isodoublet resonances, $K^*_0(800), K^*_0(1430)$. In this work, we present a more extensive view on the mixing framework and extend this to the isoscalar resonances, $f_0 (500)$, $f_0(980)$, $f_0 (1370)$, $f_0(1500)$. Tetraquarks in this framework can have two spin configurations containing either spin0 diquark or spin1 diquark and each configuration forms a nonet in flavor space. The two spin configurations are found to mix strongly through the colorspin interactions. Their mixtures, which diagonalize the hyperfine masses, can generate the physical resonances constituting the two nonets, which, in fact, coincide roughly with the experimental observation. We identify that $f_0 (500)$, $f_0(980)$ are the isoscalar members in the light nonet, and $f_0 (1370)$, $f_0(1500)$ are the similar members in the heavy nonet. This means that the spin configuration mixing, as it relates the corresponding members in the two nonets, can generate $f_0 (500), f_0 (1370)$ among the members in light mass, and $f_0(980), f_0(1500)$ in heavy mass. The complication arises because the isoscalar members of each nonet are subject to an additional flavor mixing known as OZI rule so that $f_0 (500), f_0 (980)$, and similarly $f_0 (1370), f_0 (1500)$, are the mixture of two isoscalar members belonging to an octet and a singlet in SU$_f$(3). The tetraquark mixing framework including the flavor mixing is tested for the isoscalar resonances in terms of the mass splitting and the fallapart decay modes.

Title: Lepton Flavor Violation Induced by a Neutral Scalar at Future Lepton CollidersComments: 7 pages, 5 figures, 1 tableSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Experiment (hepex)
Many new physics scenarios beyond the Standard Model often necessitate the existence of a (light) neutral scalar $H$, which might couple to the charged leptons in a flavor violating way, while evading all existing constraints. We show that such scalars could be effectively produced at future lepton colliders, either onshell or offshell depending on their mass, and induce lepton flavor violating (LFV) signals, i.e. $e^+ e^ \to \ell_\alpha^\pm \ell_\beta^\mp (+H)$ with $\alpha\neq \beta$. We find that a large parameter space of the scalar mass and the LFV couplings can be probed, well beyond the current lowenergy constraints in the lepton sector. In particular, a scalarloop induced explanation of the longstanding muon $g2$ anomaly can be directly tested in the onshell mode.
