b-Quark Physics with the LEP Collider: The Development of Experimental Techniques for b-Quark Studies from Z^0-Decay

The e-book stories the unforeseen influence that the LEP experiments have had near to b-quark physics. The emphasis is firmly on telling the tale from an experimental standpoint. points of the detectors that have been crucial for the reconstruction of b-hadrons are highlighted, particularly the position performed via silicon strip detectors and particle identity tools.

Fermilab: Physics, the Frontier, and Megascience

Fermi nationwide Accelerator Laboratory, situated within the western suburbs of Chicago, has stood on the frontier of high-energy physics for 40 years. Fermilab is the 1st historical past of this laboratory and of its robust accelerators advised from the viewpoint of the folk who equipped and used them for medical discovery.

2 Vacuum stability Comparison of theoretical radiative corrections with precision experimental data predicts a rather low Higgs mass. Let us consider first what theoretical constraints can be obtained from the SM framework. A constraint for the lower mass limit can be obtained from vacuum stability. One condition for spontaneous symmetry breaking of the vacuum was that ????, that is, the coefficient of the quartic term in the Higgs potential, must remain positive. 24) mh2 = 2????v2 A negative value of ???? makes the vacuum unstable for large values of |Φ|.

04 95% CL 174 Metastable 172 170 mt = 175. 6 (a, b) Renormalization group evolution (RGE) of the Higgs self-coupling for mh = 126 GeV for the central value of mt and ????s , as well as for ±2???? variations of mt (dashed lines) and ????s (dotted lines). For negative values of ????, the lifetime of the SM vacuum due to quantum tunneling at zero temperature is longer than the age of the Universe as long as ???? remains above the region shaded in red, which takes into account the finite corrections to the effective bounce action renormalized at the same scale as ????.

45) Thus, the position of the neutral component in the Higgs doublets should be reversed to produce the correct mass terms when they get the vacuum expectation value. 49) The VEV of the SM, v2 ≡ v12 + v22 , is fixed by the relation mW = gW v∕2, which leads to the second equality in Eqs. 48). 50) tan2 ???? − 1 One sees that the two equations in Eq. 48) automatically satisfy the vacuum stability and the symmetry-breaking conditions. 2 Coupling Strengths of MSSM Higgs As the SUSY relates the gauge sector to the Higgs sector, the coupling of the Higgs is uniquely determined once the SUSY parameters (tan ????, tan ????) are given.
