Interference effects of two scalar boson propagators on the LHC search for the singlet fermion DMOct 13 2016A gauge invariant UV-completion for singlet fermion DM interacting with the standard model (SM) particles involves a new singlet scalar. Therefore the model contains two scalar mediators, mixtures of the SM Higgs boson and a singlet scalar boson. Collider ... More
Light dark photon and fermionic dark radiation for the Hubble constant and the structure formationAug 03 2016Aug 16 2016Motivated by the tensions in the Hubble constant $H_0$ and the structure growth $\sigma_8$ between $Planck$ results and other low redshift measurements, we discuss some cosmological effects of a dark sector model in which dark matter (DM) interacts with ...

Properties of Diffuse Interstellar Bands at Different Physical Conditions of the ISMJun 24 2013Diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) can trace different conditions of the ISM along the sightline toward the observed stars. A small survey was made in optical wavelengths, producing high resolution and high signal to noise spectra. We present measurements ... More
A Gravitational Effective Action on a Finite TriangulationDec 22 2005Jan 15 2006We construct a function of the edge-lengths of a triangulated surface whose variation under a rescaling of all the edges that meet at a vertex is the defect angle at that vertex. We interpret this function as a gravitational effective action on the triangulation, ... More
A Gravitational Effective Action on a Finite Triangulation as a Discrete Model of Continuous ConceptsMay 02 2006May 04 2006We recall how the Gauss-Bonnet theorem can be interpreted as a finite dimen- sional index theorem. We describe the construction given in hep-th/0512293 of a function that can be interpreted as a gravitational effective action on a triangulation. The variation ... More
Quantum Tomography Approach in Signal AnalysisJun 02 1999Some properties of the fractional Fourier transform, which is used in information processing, are presented in connection with the tomography transform of optical signals. Relation of the Green function of the quantum harmonic oscillator to the fractional ... More
Energy-level diagrams and their contribution to fifth-order Raman and second-order infrared responses: Distinction between relaxation mechanisms by two-dimensional spectroscopyNov 29 2002We develop a Feynman rule for energy-level diagrams emphasizing their connections to the double-sided Feynman diagrams and physical processes in the Liouville space. Thereby we completely identify such diagrams and processes contributing to the two-dimensional ... More
Stabilizing the monodromy of an open book decompositionJun 05 2007We prove that any mapping class on a compact oriented surface with nonempty boundary can be made pseudo-Anosov and right-veering after a sequence of positive stabilizations.
Reeb vector fields and open book decompositionsSep 29 2008We determine parts of the contact homology of certain contact 3-manifolds in the framework of open book decompositions, due to Giroux. We study two cases: when the monodromy map of the compatible open book is periodic and when it is pseudo-Anosov. For ... More
Scale invariant extension of the standard model with strongly interacting hidden sectorMar 14 2011We present a scale invariant extension of the standard model with new QCD-like strong interaction in the hidden sector. A scale $\Lambda_H$ is dynamically generated in the hidden sector by dimensional transmutation, and chiral symmetry breaking occurs ... More
