  • We analyze the potential of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to study anomalous trilinear vector-boson interactions W{sup +}W{sup -}{gamma} and W{sup +}W{sup -}Z through the single production of electroweak gauge bosons via the weak boson fusion processes qq{yields}qqW({yields}l{sup {+-}}{nu}) and qq{yields}qqZ({yields}l{sup +}l{sup -}) with l=e or {mu}. After a careful study of the standard model backgrounds, we show that the single production of electroweak bosons at the LHC can provide stringent tests on deviations of these vertices from the standard model prediction. In particular, we show that single gauge-boson production exhibits a sensitivity to the couplings {delta}{kappa}{sub Z,{gamma}} similarmore » to that attainable from the analysis of electroweak boson pair production.« less
  • We present analytic results for the two-loop leading heavy top-quark contributions as required for precise predictions of electroweak observables. The Higgs boson mass is kept arbitrary. We discuss a set of recurrence relations for diagrams with three masses at zero momentum, which allow one to reduce the calculation to a few master integrals. Simple analytic expressions are obtained for the [rho] parameter and for the [ital Zb[bar b]] vertex. Results are pesented for the on-shell and the M[bar S] definition of the top quark mass. We explicitly discuss and verify the validity of Ward-Takahashi identities and check that the usemore » of an anticommuting [gamma][sub 5] preserves the latter.« less
  • We argue that, within a broad class of extensions of the standard model, there is a tight correlation between the dynamics of the electroweak phase transition and the cubic self-coupling of the Higgs boson: Models which exhibit a strong first-order electroweak phase transition predict a large deviation of the Higgs self-coupling from the standard model prediction, as long as no accidental cancellations occur. Order-one deviations are typical. This shift would be observable at the Large Hadron Collider if the proposed luminosity or energy upgrades are realized, as well as at a future electron-positron collider such as the proposed International Linearmore » Collider. These measurements would provide a laboratory test of the dynamics of the electroweak phase transition.« less
  • Virtual effects of new physics on the trilinear electroweak couplings WWV and VVV (V = {gamma},Z) are reviewed, both in specific models and the effective Lagrangian approach. The impact of new particles on the static electromagnetic properties of the W boson are discussed in several contexts. In particular, the sensitivity of the CP--violating electromagnetic moments to new sources of CP violation, as general Yukawa couplings, is stressed. The one-loop contribution of new gauge bosons to the off-shell WWV vertex is analyzed in the light of nonconventional quantization methods. In particular, a covariant scheme based in the BRST symmetry endowed withmore » a nonlinear gauge-fixing procedure is discussed. The VVV coupling is studied in the context of the effective Lagrangian approach and the role played by the Bose and Lorentz symmetries emphasized. We argue that these symmetries are so restrictive that these vertices perhaps never could be observed, unless one of these principles could not be an exact symmetry of the nature, as suggested by quantum field theories formulated in a noncommutative space-time, which violate the Lorentz symmetry and thus allow for the existence of non-vanishing on-shell VVV vertices at the level of the classical action.« less
