Higgs pair production at the LHC with NLO and partonshower effects
/ Frederix, R (CERN) ; Frixione, S (CERN) ; Hirschi, V (SLAC) ; Maltoni, F (Louvain U., CP3) ; Mattelaer, O (Louvain U., CP3) ; Torrielli, P (Zurich U.) ; Vryonidou, E (Louvain U., CP3) ; Zaro, M (Paris U., IV ; Paris, LPTHE)
We present predictions for the SMHiggspair production channels of relevance at the LHC: gluongluon fusion, VBF, and toppair, W, Z and singletop associated production. All these results are at the NLO accuracy in QCD, and matched to parton showers by means of the MC@NLO method; hence, they are fully differential. [...]

Nohair conjectures, primordial shear and protoinflationary initial conditions
/ Giovannini, Massimo (CERN ; INFN, Milan Bicocca)
Anisotropic inflationary background geometries are analyzed in the context of an extended gauge action where the electric and magnetic susceptibilities are not bound to coincide and depend on the inflaton field. After deriving various classes of solutions with electric and magnetic hairs, we discuss the problem of the initial boundary conditions of the shear parameter and consider a globally neutral plasma as a possible relic of a preinflationary stage of expansion.

Rescuing Quadratic Inflation
/ Ellis, John (King's Coll. London) ; Fairbairn, Malcolm (King's Coll. London) ; Sueiro, Maria (King's Coll. London)
Inflationary models based on a single scalar field $\phi$ with a quadratic potential $V = \frac{1}{2} m^2 \phi^2$ are disfavoured by the recent Planck constraints on the scalar index, $n_s$, and the tensortoscalar ratio for cosmological density perturbations, $r_T$. In this paper we study how such a quadratic inflationary model can be rescued by postulating additional fields with quadratic potentials, such as might occur in sneutrino models, which might serve as either curvatons or supplementary inflatons.

Dynamical sectors of a relativistic two particle model
/ Dominici, Daniele (INFN, Florence ; Florence U.) ; Gomis, Joaquim (CERN ; ICC, Barcelona U. ; Barcelona U., ECM) ; Kamimura, Kiyoshi (Toho U.) ; Longhi, Giorgio (Florence U. ; INFN, Florence)
We reconsider a model of two relativistic particles interacting via a multiplicative potential, as an example of a simple dynamical system with sectors, or branches, with different dynamics and degrees of freedom.The presence or absence of sectors depends on the values of rest masses. Some aspects of the canonical quantization are described. [...]

Study of the 125 GeV Standard Model Higgs Boson Partial Widths and Branching Fractions
/ Almeida, Leandro G (Orsay, LPT) ; Lee, Seung J (KAIST, Taejon ; KAIST, Seoul) ; Pokorski, Stefan (Warsaw U.) ; Wells, James D (CERN)
The discovery of the Higgs boson, with mass known to better than the percent level, enables for the first time precision Higgs boson analyses. Toward this goal, we define an expansion formalism of the Higgs boson partial widths and branching fractions that facilitates such studies. [...]

Monotop phenomenology at the Large Hadron Collider
/ Agram, JeanLaurent (Haute Alsace U., IUT Colmar) ; Andrea, Jeremy (Strasbourg, IPHC) ; Buttignol, Michael (Haute Alsace U., IUT Colmar) ; Conte, Eric (Haute Alsace U., IUT Colmar) ; Fuks, Benjamin (Strasbourg, IPHC ; CERN)
We investigate new physics scenarios where systems comprised of a single top quark accompanied by missing transverse energy, dubbed monotops, can be produced at the LHC. Following a simplified model approach, we describe all possible monotop production modes via an effective theory and estimate the sensitivity of the LHC, assuming 20 fb$^{1}$ of collisions at a centerofmass energy of 8 TeV, to the observation of a monotop state.
