  • New model-independent constraints on possible modifications of Newtonian gravity over solar-system distance scales are presented and their implications discussed. The constraints arise from the analysis of various planetary astrometric data sets. The results of the model-independent analysis are then applied to set limits on a variation in the 1/r/sup 2/ behavior of gravity, on possible Yukawa-type interactions with ranges of the order of planetary distance scales, and on a deviation from Newtonian gravity of the type discussed by Milgrom.
  • Using effective-Lagrangian techniques we perform a systematic survey of the lowest-dimension effective interactions through which heavy physics might manifest itself in present experiments. We do not restrict ourselves to special classes of effective interactions (such as oblique'' corrections). We compute the effects of these operators on all currently well-measured electroweak observables, both at low energies and at the [ital Z] resonance, and perform a global fit to their coefficients. Despite the fact that a great many operators arise in our survey, we find that most are quite strongly bounded by the current data. We use our survey to systematically identifymore » those effective interactions which are [ital not] well bounded by the data---these could very well include large new-physics contributions. Our results may also be used to efficiently confront specific models for new physics with the data, as we illustrate with an example.« less
  • Model-independent constraints on the Isgur-Wise function and its derivatives, based on analyticity, unitarity, and perturbative QCD expansion for the polarization function in the spacelike region, are derived using a duality theorem in functional optimization. In particular, we obtan the allowed domain for the slope and the convexity of this function at zero recoil, using as input various information about the {Upsilon} poles below the {ital B{bar B}} threshold. The results are of interest for testing specific models of the heavy meson form factors and the extraction of the matrix element {ital V}{sub {ital c}{ital b}} from experimental data on exclusivemore » semiliptonic decays of the {ital B} mesons.« less
  • Using an effective Lagrangian approach, we perform a model-independent analysis of the interactions among electroweak gauge bosons and the third generation quarks, i.e. the Wtb, Zt{bar t}, and Zb{bar b} couplings. After one imposes the known experimental constraint on the Zb{sub L}b{sub L} coupling, we show that the electroweak SU(2){sub L} x U(1){sub Y} symmetry of the standard model specifies the pattern of deviations of the Zt{sub L}t{sub L} and Wt{sub L}b{sub L} couplings, independent of underlying new physics scenarios. We study implications of the predicted pattern with data on the single top quark and Zt{bar t} associated production processesmore » at the Large Hadron Collider. Such an analysis could in principle allow for a determination of the Wtb coupling without prior knowledge of |V{sub tb}|, which is otherwise difficult to achieve.« less
