Single top polarisation as a window to new physics / Aguilar-Saavedra, J.A. (Granada U., Theor. Phys. Astrophys.) ; Degrande, C. (CERN) ; Khatibi, S. (IPM, Tehran)
We discuss the effect of heavy new physics, parameterised in terms of four-fermion operators, in the polarisation of single top (anti-)quarks in the $t$-channel process at the LHC. It is found that for operators involving a right-handed top quark field the relative effect on the longitudinal polarisation is twice larger than the relative effect on the total cross section. [...]

Inflationary Perturbations in No-Scale Theories / Salvio, Alberto (CERN)
We study the inflationary perturbations in general (classically) scale-invariant theories. Such scenario is motivated by the hierarchy problem and provides natural inflationary potentials and dark matter candidates. [...]

Right-handed charged currents in the era of the Large Hadron Collider / Alioli, S. (CERN) ; Cirigliano, V. (Los Alamos Natl. Lab., Theor. Div.) ; Dekens, W. (Los Alamos Natl. Lab., Theor. Div. ; New Mexico Consortium, Los Alamos) ; de Vries, J. (NIKHEF, Amsterdam) ; Mereghetti, E. (Los Alamos Natl. Lab., Theor. Div.)
We discuss the phenomenology of right-handed charged currents in the framework of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory, in which they arise due to a single gauge-invariant dimension-six operator. We study the manifestations of the nine complex couplings of the $W$ to right-handed quarks in collider physics, flavor physics, and low-energy precision measurements. [...]

SMD-based numerical stochastic perturbation theory / Dalla Brida, Mattia (Milan Bicocca U. ; INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Lüscher, Martin (CERN ; Bern U.)
The viability of a variant of numerical stochastic perturbation theory, where the Langevin equation is replaced by the SMD algorithm, is examined. In particular, the convergence of the process to a unique stationary state is rigorously established and the use of higher-order symplectic integration schemes is shown to be highly profitable in this context. [...]

Dispersion relation for hadronic light-by-light scattering: two-pion contributions / Colangelo, Gilberto (Bern U. ; U. Bern, AEC) ; Hoferichter, Martin (Washington U., Seattle ; Santa Barbara, KITP) ; Procura, Massimiliano (CERN) ; Stoffer, Peter (Bonn U., HISKP ; U. Bonn, Phys. Inst., BCTP ; UC, San Diego)
In this third paper of a series dedicated to a dispersive treatment of the hadronic light-by-light (HLbL) tensor, we derive a partial-wave formulation for two-pion intermediate states in the HLbL contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon $(g-2)_\mu$, including a detailed discussion of the unitarity relation for arbitrary partial waves. We show that obtaining a final expression free from unphysical helicity partial waves is a subtle issue, which we thoroughly clarify. [...]

Thermodynamics of strongly-coupled lattice QCD in the chiral limit / de Forcrand, Philippe (Zurich, ETH ; CERN) ; Romatschke, Paul (Colorado U.) ; Unger, Wolfgang (Bielefeld U.) ; Vairinhos, Helvio (Zurich, ETH)
In the strong coupling limit, $n$-point functions in lattice QCD with staggered fermions can be rewritten exactly as sums over constrained configurations of monomers, dimers, and baryon loops covering the spacetime lattice. Worm algorithms provide efficient global sampling methods over such ensembles, and are particularly efficient in the chiral limit. [...]

Testing Lorentz invariance of dark matter with satellite galaxies / Bettoni, Dario (U. Heidelberg, ITP) ; Nusser, Adi (Technion) ; Blas, Diego (CERN) ; Sibiryakov, Sergey (CERN ; EPFL, Lausanne, LPPC ; Moscow, INR)
We develop the framework for testing Lorentz invariance in the dark matter sector using galactic dynamics. We consider a Lorentz violating (LV) vector field acting on the dark matter component of a satellite galaxy orbiting in a host halo. [...]

QED Corrections to Hadronic Observables / Patella, Agostino (CERN ; Plymouth U., Math. Stat. Dept.)
When aiming at the percent precision in hadronic quantities calculated by means of lattice simulations, isospin breaking effects become relevant. These are of two kinds: up/down mass splitting and electromagnetic corrections. [...]

Dark sectors and enhanced $h\to \tau \mu$ transitions / Galon, Iftah (UC, Irvine) ; Zupan, Jure (Cincinnati U. ; CERN)
LHC searches with $\tau$ leptons in the final state are always inclusive in missing-energy sources. A signal in the flavor-violating Higgs decay search, $h\to\tau\mu$, could therefore equally well be due to a flavor conserving decay, but with an extended decay topology with additional invisible particles.

Aspects of Berry phase in QFT / Baggio, Marco (Leuven U.) ; Niarchos, Vasilis (Durham U., Dept. of Math. ; Durham U., CPT) ; Papadodimas, Kyriakos (CERN ; U. Groningen, VSI)
When continuous parameters in a QFT are varied adiabatically, quantum states typically undergo mixing---a phenomenon characterized by the Berry phase. We initiate a systematic analysis of the Berry phase in QFT using standard quantum mechanics methods. [...]
