Resonances from two universal extra dimensions
Abstract
Standard model gauge bosons propagating in two universal extra dimensions give rise to heavy spin1 and spin0 particles. The lightest of these, carrying KaluzaKlein numbers (1,0), may be produced only in pairs at colliders, whereas the (1,1) modes, which are heavier by a factor of {radical}2, may be singly produced. We show that the cascade decays of (1,1) particles generate a series of closelyspaced narrow resonances in the t{bar t} invariant mass distribution. At the Tevatron, schannel production of (1,1) gluons and electroweak bosons will be sensitive to t{bar t} resonances up to masses in the 0.50.7 TeV range. Searches at the LHC for resonances originating from several higherlevel modes will further test the existence of two universal extra dimensions.

Standard model gauge bosons propagating in two universal extra dimensions give rise to heavy spin1 and spin0 particles. The lightest of these, carrying KaluzaKlein numbers (1,0), may be produced only in pairs at colliders, whereas the (1,1) modes, which are heavier by a factor of {radical}(2), may be singly produced. We show that the cascade decays of (1,1) particles generate a series of closelyspaced narrow resonances in the tt invariant mass distribution. At the Tevatron, schannel production of (1,1) gluons and electroweak bosons will be sensitive to tt resonances up to masses in the 0.50.7 TeV range. Searches at themore »

Spinless photon dark matter from two universal extra dimensions
We explore the properties of dark matter in theories with two universal extra dimensions, where the lightest KaluzaKlein state is a spin0 neutral particle, representing a sixdimensional photon polarized along the extra dimensions. Annihilation of this 'spinless photon' proceeds predominantly through Higgs boson exchange, and is largely independent of other KaluzaKlein particles. The measured relic abundance sets an upper limit on the spinless photon mass of 500 GeV, which decreases to almost 200 GeV if the Higgs boson is light. The phenomenology of this dark matter candidate is strikingly different from KaluzaKlein dark matter in theories with one universal extramore » 
Two universal extra dimensions and spinless photons at the ILC.
We study the ILC phenomenology of KaluzaKlein (KK) modes along two universal extra dimensions compactified on the chiral square. We compute production cross sections of various (1, 0) particles at the ILC with (s){sup 1/2} = 1 TeV, focusing on decays of KKleptons and the KK partner of the hypercharge gauge boson down to the 'spinless photon', which is the lightest KK particle. We contrast this model to one universal extra dimension with KKphoton (spin1) and supersymmetry with neutralino (spin1/2) or gravitino (spin3/2) dark matter. We also investigate the discovery potential for (1, 1) KK bosons as schannel resonances. 

B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma} in two universal extra dimensions
We calculate the leading order corrections to the B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma} decay in the standard model with two large flat universal extra dimensions. We find that the contributions involving the exchange of KaluzaKlein modes of the physical scalar field a{sub (kl)}{sup {+}} depend logarithmically on the ultraviolet cutoff scale {lambda}. We emphasize that all flavorchanging neutral current transitions suffer from this problem. Although the ultraviolet sensitivity weakens the lower bound on the inverse compactification radius 1/R that follows from B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma}, the constraint remains stronger than any other available direct measurement.
