The geometric re-organization of the SMEFT (geoSMEFT) has facilitated calculations of higher order corrections O(1/\Lambda^4) and beyond to important collider processes. These higher order results can be used as laboratories for truncation uncertainty/EFT validity. In this talk, I will highlight some of the takeaway messages, focusing on O(1/\Lambda^4) calculations of Drell Yan, associated...

In my presentation, I shall discuss the Renormalisation Group (RG) running of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) bosonic sector at 1-loop level up to order 1/Λ^{4}, where Λ is the SMEFT cut-off scale. Specifically, I will explore the contributions from dimension eight operators that are tree-level generated and Lepton Number Violating operators (LNVs) at...

Based on [2105.12742, 2303.07391] and upcoming work, I will discuss various aspects of the renormalization of scalar effective field theory (EFT). For single insertions of EFT operators, we computed anomalous dimensions at five loop order and high mass dimension using the R* method. For multiple insertions, we present three-loop results and a general non-renormalization theorem that dictates...

Massive field EFTs are widely used in particle physics, but how to construct massive field operators efficiently remains a challenge. We propose a general theory to solve this problem based on the scattering amplitude theory. We find that the complete set of EFT bases can be systematically constructed using the Lorentz subgroup SU(2) and global symmetry U(N), where N represents the number of...

Theoretical interpretations of particle physics data, such as the determination of the Wilson coefficients of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT), often involve the inference of multiple parameters from a global dataset. Optimising such interpretations requires the identification of observables that exhibit the highest possible sensitivity to the underlying theory parameters....

We study the one-loop corrections to Vector Boson Scattering within the framework of effective theories. We focus our attention on fermion-loop corrections which scale like $\mathcal{O}(s/v^4)$ in the Higgs Effective Field Theory (HEFT). Although this dependency is formally suppressed for $s \rightarrow \infty$ with respect to that from boson loops, the large top mass can lead to a numerical...

In the electroweak sector of the Standard Model, CP violation arises through a very particular interplay between the three quark generations, as described by the CKM mechanism and the single Jarlskog invariant $J_4$. Once generalized to the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT), this peculiar pattern gets modified by higher-dimensional operators, whose associated Wilson coefficients...

We study four top quark production at hadron colliders in the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT). We perform an analysis at the tree-level, including all possible QCD- and EW-coupling orders and relevant dimension-six operators. We find several cases where formally subleading terms give rise to significant contributions, potentially providing sensitivity to a broad class of...

In this work the prospects for measurements of the top-quark couplings at future colliders are presented. Projections are presented for the high luminosity phase of the Large Hadron Collider and a future Higgs/electroweak/top factory lepton collider. Results are presented for the expected bounds on Wilson coefficients of the relevant SMEFT operators from a global fit to the top-quark sector.

The low-energy phenomenology of high-scale new physics is best captured with effective field theories (EFTs). Evanescent operators - operators that vanish in 4D - show up at intermediate steps in the matching calculations used to determine the specific EFT coefficients. Although seemingly unphysical, evanescent operators lead to finite physical effects, which must be accounted for. This...

Linear Standard Model (SM) extensions, defined as new particles that can

couple linearly to SM fields, form a motivated subset of simplified models for

exploring phenomenology beyond the SM (BSM). Their linear couplings enable

them to be singly produced at colliders and searched for directly. To take full

advantage of the complementarity between direct searches at high energy and

indirect...

In the presence of axions and axion-like particles (ALPs) that couple to the Standard Model via non-renormalisable dimension-5 operators, non-zero Wilson coefficients (WCs) of the Standard Model effective field theory (SMEFT) are induced by renormalisation group evolution. Since many of the SMEFT WCs are experimentally constrained, this ALP-SMEFT interference allows to derive indirect bounds...

In this talk, I review recent work developing dilaton effective field theory (EFT), which provides a framework for describing the Higgs boson as composite state. The EFT describes a multiplet of pseudo-Goldstone bosons which arise when an approximate global symmetry gets spontaneously broken, as well as a dilaton - a pseudo-Goldstone boson arising from the spontaneous breaking of an...
