  • The framework of a warped extra dimension with the standard model (SM) fields propagating in it is a very well-motivated extension of the SM since it can address both the Planck-weak and flavor hierarchy problems of the SM. Within this framework, solution to the little hierarchy problem motivates extending the SM electroweak (EW) 5D gauge symmetry in such a way that its breakdown to the SM delivers the SM Higgs boson. We study signals at the large hadron collider (LHC) for the extra EW (called coset) gauge bosons, a fundamental ingredient of this framework. The coset gauge bosons, due tomore » their unique EW gauge quantum numbers [doublets of SU(2){sub L}], do not couple at leading order to two SM particles. We find that, using the associated production of the charged coset gauge bosons via their coupling to bottom quark and a (light) Kaluza-Klein excitation of the top quark, the LHC can have a 3{sigma} reach of {approx}2(2.6) TeV for the coset gauge boson masses with {approx}100(1000) fb{sup -1} luminosity. Since current theoretical framework(s) suggest an indirect lower limit on coset gauge boson masses of > or approx. 3 TeV, luminosity or energy upgrade of LHC is likely to be crucial in observing these states.« less
  • We exhibit a model in which a single pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson explains dark energy, inflation and baryogenesis. The model predicts correlated signals in future collider experiments, WIMP searches, proton decay experiments, dark energy probes, and the PLANCK satellite CMB measurements.
  • We analyze the observational constraints on the model where a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson (pNGB) plays the role of dark energy. The constraints are derived by using the latest Gold set of 182 type Ia supernovae and the CMB shift parameter. We allow for both the initial value of the scalar field and the present value of the energy density in the pNGB to vary. We find that--compared to previous analyses--the allowed portion of parameter space has shrunk around the region where the pNGB does not evolve significantly.
  • We present a lattice calculation of L{sub 10}, one of the low-energy constants in chiral perturbation theory, and the charged-neutral pion squared-mass splitting, using dynamical overlap fermion. The exact chiral symmetry of the overlap fermion allows us to reliably extract these quantities from the difference of the vacuum polarization functions for vector and axial-vector currents. In the context of the technicolor models, these two quantities are read as the S parameter and the pseudo Nambu-Goldstone boson mass, respectively, and play an important role in discriminating the models from others. This calculation can serve as a feasibility study of the latticemore » techniques for more general technicolor gauge theories.« less
  • We analyze the constraining power of future dark energy experiments for pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone-boson (PNGB) quintessence. Following the Dark Energy Task Force (DETF) methodology, we forecast data for three experimental stages: Stage 2 represents in-progress projects relevant to dark energy; Stage 3 refers to medium-sized experiments; Stage 4 comprises larger projects. We determine the posterior probability distribution for the parameters of the PNGB model using Markov Chain Monte Carlo analysis. Utilizing data generated on a {lambda}CDM cosmology, we find that the relative power of the different data stages on PNGB quintessence is roughly comparable to the DETF results for the w{sub 0}-w{submore » a} parametrization of dark energy. We also generate data based on a PNGB cosmological model that is consistent with a {lambda}CDM fiducial model at Stage 2. We find that Stage 4 data based on this PNGB fiducial model will rule out a cosmological constant by at least 3{sigma}.« less
