 The Astrophobic Axion / Di Luzio, Luca ; Mescia, Federico ; Nardi, Enrico ; Panci, Paolo ; Ziegler, Robert We propose a class of generalized DFSZ axion models with generation dependent Peccei-Quinn charges that allow to simultaneously suppress the axion couplings to nucleons and electrons.

 Initial Conditions for Critical Higgs Inflation / Salvio, Alberto It has been pointed out that a large non-minimal coupling $\xi$ between the Higgs and the Ricci scalar can source higher derivative operators, which may change the predictions of Higgs inflation.

 Search for $B_c^+$ decays to two charm mesons / LHCb Collaboration A search for decays of $B_c^+$ mesons to two charm mesons is performed for the first time using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment in $pp$ collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV.

 Accessing Masses Beyond Collider Reach - in EFT / Goertz, Florian (Heidelberg, Max Planck Inst. ; CERN) We demonstrate how masses of new states, beyond direct experimental reach, could nevertheless be extracted in the framework of effective field theory (EFT), given broad assumptions on the underlying UV physics, however not sticking to a particular setup nor fixing the coupling strength of the scenario. [...] arXiv:1711.03162. - 20 p. Preprint

 Search for hidden-photon Dark Matter with FUNK / FUNK Experiment Collaboration It has been proposed that an additional U(1) sector of hidden photons could account for the Dark Matter observed in the Universe. [...] arXiv:1711.02961. - 4 p. Preprint

 Search for hidden-photon dark matter with the FUNK experiment / FUNK Experiment Collaboration Many extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics predict a parallel sector of a new U(1) symmetry, giving rise to hidden photons. [...] arXiv:1711.02958. - 8 p. Preprint
