Selection rules of scattering amplitudes in EFTs/Fast-rolling relaxion

TYPEJoint Particle Physics Seminar
Speaker:Jiang Minyuan/Yutaro Shoji (
Organizer:Yotam Soreq
Time:11:00 - 12:30

Minyuan will talk about 
Selection rules of scattering amplitudes in EFTs

I will discuss about the selection rules in helicity amplitudes in generic EFTs, at both tree and loop level. I will firstly review the well-known "non-interference" and "non-renormalization" theorems in the literature. Then I will present the new selection rules we obtained from angular momentum conservation, which gives new restriction of the anomalous dimension matrix of effective operators and the way how effective operators contribute to some 2 → N amplitudes at the loop level. 

Yutaro will talk about 
Fast-rolling relaxion

The negative results at the Large Hadron Collider imply that the scale of new physics is much higher than the electroweak scale, and the hierarchy between them should be explained in a natural way. The relaxion mechanism is a recently-proposed solution to the hierarchy problem and the electroweak scale is tuned dynamically by a scalar field. We point out that the tunneling phase of the original mechanism requires a huge number of e-folds of inflation and could cause fine-tuning problems in the inflation sector. We found a new mechanism within the original model, which overcomes the problem, is realized in a generic setup, and enhances the testability at colliders.
