        Constraints on Seesaw Models and Signatures at the LHC 20m
        We consider variants of TeV-scale seesaw models in which two and three additional heavy right-handed neutrinos are added to the standard model to generate the hierarchical and quasidegenerate light neutrinos respectively. These models are theoretically interesting since they can be fully reconstructed from the neutrino oscillation data except for an unknown constant in the Dirac-Yukawa coupling. We study the constraints on this coupling coming from metastability of the electroweak vacuum. An even stronger bound comes from the lepton flavor violating decays on these models, especially in a heavy neutrino mass scenario which is within the collider’s reach. With these constrained parameters, we study the production of heavy neutrinos at the Large Hadron Collider through the dominant s-channel production mode as well as the vector boson fusion process. The conventional same-sign-dilepton signal at the Large Hadron Collider is highly suppressed in such models. We analyze the collider signatures with the trilepton final state and missing transverse energy as well as vector boson fusion type signals which are characterized by two additional forward tagged jets. Our investigation reveals that due to stringent constraints on light-heavy mixing coming from lepton flavor violation and metastability bounds, the model can be explored only for a light to moderate mass range of heavy neutrinos.

        Neutralino Dark Matter and Other LHC Predictions from Quasi Yukawa Unification 20m
        We explore the dark matter and LHC implications of t-b-tau quasi Yukawa unification in the framework of supersymmetric models based on the gauge symmetry G=$SU(4)_{c}\times SU(2)_{L}\times SU(2)_{R}$. The deviation from exact Yukawa unification is quantified by a dimensionless parameter C (|C| <~ 0.2), such that the Yukawa couplings at M_GUT are related by y_t:y_b:y_tau=|1+C| : |1-C| : |1+3C|. In contrast to earlier studies which focused on universal gaugino masses, we consider non-universal gaugino masses at $M_GUT$ that are compatible with the gauge symmetry G. We perform two independent scans of the fundamental parameter space, one of which employs ISAJET, while the other uses SoftSusy interfaced with SuperIso. These scans reveal qualitatively similar allowed regions in the parameter space, and yield a variety of neutralino dark matter scenarios consistent with the observations. These include stau and chargino coannihilation scenarios, the A-resonance scenario, as well as Higgsino dark matter solution which is more readily probed by direct detection searches. The gluino mass is found to be <~ 4.2 TeV, the stop mass is >~ 2 TeV, while the first two family squarks and sleptons are of order 4-5 TeV and 3 TeV respectively.

        New Physics signals in Vector quark models 20m
        We investigate the vector quark models which include the addition of a vector isosinglet quark to the Standard Model. In these models, the full CKM matrix is larger than 3 × 3. A signal of the new physics will be the non-unitarity of the 3 × 3 CKM matrix. Using present flavor physics data, we perform a combined fit to this full CKM matrix, looking for signals of new physics (NP). We find that these models are very strongly constrained. There are no hints of NP in the CKM matrix.

        QCD evaluations with IR finite couplings 1h
        We present several schemes of QCD with running coupling with finite value in the infrared (IR). Such couplings, in comparison with usual perturbative couplings with Landau singularities, usually (but not always) contain nonperturbative contributions and, when combined with OPE, better describe IR sector. We then show that evaluation of spacelike renormalization group invariant QCD quantities, such as current correlators or structure functions, in the form of truncated power series of such IR finite couplings often leads to unphysical and highly divergent results. We show that, instead, truncated expansions in the logarithmic derivatives of the coupling are more stable and keep the nonperturbative contributions under control. Extension to evaluation of timelike quantities is explained. Programs in Mathematica and in Fortran for evaluations are presented.

        The Nielsen Identities - a useful tool for showing gauge invariance 20m
        Nielsen Identities are a generalisation of the Slavnov-Taylor identities which show the gauge parameter dependence of 1-PI diagrams. They are derived from a generalised BRST-invariance of the Lagrangian, in which the gauge parameter gets promoted to a scalar field. I will derive fermionic Nielsen Identities for generating functionals and proper vertex functions, and show how to use them both in general and in perturbation theory.

        Mass bounds in 2HDMs in the SM-like limit. 20m
        We consider 2HDMs with a softly broken global U(1) symmetry and the fermion transformations under this symmetry. We study the implication of a criterion of naturalness for a broad class of two Higgs doublet models (2HDMs). In particular, we assume the cancellation of quadratic divergences in what are called the type I, type II, lepton-specific and flipped 2HDMs. This results in a set of relations among masses of the physical scalars and coupling constants, a generalization of the Veltman conditions of the Standard Model. Assuming that the lighter uncharged scalar is the observed Higgs particle of mass ∼125 GeV, and imposing further the constraints from the electroweak T-parameter, perturbative unitarity constraints and stability constraints produce a range for the masses of each of the remaining physical scalars.

        Some aspects of the NMSSM Higgs sector at the LHC 20m
        In the framework of non-minimal extension of SUSY model, the NMSSM is one of the interesting frameworks which can accommodate the recently discovered Higgs mass. In this model the Higgs sector is very diverse. We study the Higgs phenomenology in this model framework and its implications for future LHC experiments. In this talk I shall discuss some aspects of our observations.

        Two-particle disintegration processes in covariant approach 20m
        We provide a method to construct covariant two-particle nonlocal matter field disintegration amplitude. One is a sum of traditional pole series and the regular part. We explore the deposits of regular part of amplitude, and its physical sense. In the amplitudes regular part achieved absence of the singularity when fragments are scattered at right angle.We use covariant approach with conserved EM current, which gives the ability to include strong interaction into QED. Therefore, we receive the ability to describe disintegration processes of nonlocal matter fields applying standard Feynman rules of QED. Inclusion of phase exponent into wave function receives a physical sense while we deal with the dominance of strong interaction in the process. We apply Green's function formalism to describe disintegration processes. General analysis of electro-break up process of compound scalar system is given. Precisely conserved nuclear electromagnetic currents at arbitrary $q^2$ are received. The only undefined quantity in theory is vertex function parameterization. Therefore, we have the opportunity to describe electron scattering processes taking into account minimal necessary set of parameters. A transition from virtual to real photon considered in photon point limit $q^2\to0$. Total expression for matrix element of disintegration process received. Observables are calculated and compared with experimental data for disintegration of ${}^3\mathrm{He}$ and ${}^3\mathrm{H}$ in the proposed approach. For this processes $\Sigma-$asymmetry energy dependence at the right angle was predicted.

        Massless Propagators and Multiloop QCD: new results 30m
        We discuss the current status of the ongoing analytical calculation of the QCD beta-function in 5 loops as well as some new results in investigating CBK (Crewther-Brodhurst-Kataev) relation in QCD. The latter include the evaluation of the new singlet type contribution to the Bjorken sum rule (first considered by Larin) which appears first at 4-loop level only. We will also report on the calculation of the gluino dependent terms to the same sum rule (this will allow to check some non-trivial predictions of the $\beta$-expansion method (Kataev and Mikhailov, 2014) and, thus, improve our understanding of the corresponding optimization procedure.

        Three-loop cusp anomalous dimension in QCD 30m
        The three-loop cusp anomalous dimension $\Gamma$ has been calculated analytically, as a function of the Minkowski angle $\phi$, via harmonic polylogarithms up to weight 5. The color structures $C_F (T_F n_f)^{L-1} \alpha_s^L$ in $\Gamma$ and the HQET quark field anomalous dimension have been obtained to all orders. At large $\phi$ the coefficient of $1/(1-z)_+$ in the DGLAP evolution kernel is reproduced. If we introduce an effective coupling $a$ in such a way that the large-$\phi$ result is exactly first order and re-express $\Gamma(\phi)$ via $a$, the resulting expression does not contain $n_f$ (and has only one color structure at each order). The known relation between $\Gamma(\phi\to i\pi)$ and the quark-antiquark potential (which follows from conformal invariance) is violated at three loops by a term proportional to $\beta_0$.

        Static potential in perturbative QCD: the results and applications 30m

The results are used for the determination of the 4-th order approximation of the QCD $\beta$-function and for the $e^+e^-$-annihilation R-ratio in the V-scheme. The results are compared with the ones obtained in the $\overline{MS}$-scheme and minimal MOM scheme in the Landau gauge. The common features of the QED expression for the $\beta$-function in the V-scheme and MOM scheme are summarized.

        Pair production of pseudoscalar and vector Bc mesons at the LHC 20m
        On the basis of perturbative QCD and relativistic quark model we calculate cross sections of pair pseudoscalar and vector $B_c$ mesons production in proton--proton interaction. Relativistic factors in the production amplitude connected with the relative motion of heavy quarks and the transformation law of the bound state wave function are taken into account. The gluon and quark propagators entering the production amplitude are expanded in the ratio of the relative quark momenta to the meson mass up to the second order. Relativistic corrections to the quark--antiquark bound state wave functions in the rest frame are considered by means of the Breit-like potential. It turns out that the examined effects significantly decrease nonrelativistic predictions for the cross section.

        Reducing differential equations for multiloop integrals to epsilon form 30m
        Recently a remarkable observation was made concerning differential equation system for multiloop integrals. It appeared that in many cases by the proper choice of functions the differential system can be represented in the form where the dependence on regularization parameter is reduced to an overall factor $\epsilon$ in the right-hand side. Such a representation makes finding general solution of the system almost trivial. We present a systematic algorithm to find the $\epsilon$-form.

Based on calculation of some first loops an iterative procedure which allows to predict leading poles in each order without its direct calculation were constructed. Using this procedure a set of equations which provides a possibility to investigate divergent properties of a theory in leading order was obtained. Also some features and interesting properties of these equations were revealed.

        QCD at high energy and the Parton Reggeization Approach 30m
        An overview of recent results (2010-2015) obtained in the Parton Reggeization Approach (PRA) are presented. The dominance of multi-Regge final states in particle production at high energies needs the kt-factorization (high-energy factorization) approach for description of hard hadron-hadron collisions instead of the collinear approximation of the conventional Parton Model. The Lipatov's effective theory of Reggeized gluons and quarks is used to obtain gauge invariant amplitudes with off-shell initial Reggeized gluons and quarks. It is shown that LO in alpha_s calculations in the PRA describe well different data from HERA, Tevatron and the LHC (heavy quark jet, heavy meson and heavy quarkonium, single jet and prompt photon, pairs of jets and photons, Drell-Yuan pairs production, associated jet plus photon production). NLO* approximation of Parton Reggeization Approach for a photon plus jet production at HERA and photon pair production at Tevatron and LHC are discussed.

        Diphoton production at Tevatron and the LHC in the NLO* approximation of the Parton Reggeization Approach 20m
        The hadroproduction of prompt isolated photon pairs at high energies is studied in the NLO* framework of the Parton Reggeization Approach. The real part of the NLO corrections is computed, and the procedure for the subtraction of double counting between real parton emissions in the hard-scattering matrix element and unintegrated PDF is constructed for the amplitudes with Reggeized quarks in the initial state. The matrix element of the important NNLO subprocess RR->2gamma with full dependence on the transverse momenta of the initial-state Reggeized gluons is obtained. We compare obtained numerical results with diphoton spectra measured at Tevatron and the LHC, and find a good agreement of our predictions with experimental data at the high values of diphoton transverse momentum, pT, and especially at the pT larger than the diphoton invariant mass, M. In this multi-Regge kinematics region, the NLO correction is strongly suppressed, demonstrating the self-consistency of the Parton Reggeization Approach. e-print: arXiv:hep-ph/1505.01718

These enter as threshold corrections the renormalization group analyses underlying, e.g., the investigation of the vacuum stability. To ensure the gauge invariance of the parameters, in particular of the $\overline{\mathrm{MS}}$ masses, we work in $R_\xi$ gauge and systematically include tadpole contributions. We also consider the gaugeless-limit approximation and compare it with the full two-loop electroweak calculation.

        A Simple Subtraction Scheme for Calculation of the Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Electron in QED 30m
        A "forest-like" subtraction scheme is proposed for removal both ultraviolet and infrared divergences in Feynman amplitudes. This scheme is developed especially for QED calculation of the anomalous magnetic moment. The procedure gives a finite Feynman-parametric integral for any Feynman diagram (at any order of perturbation), so we don't need any regularization. The subtraction scheme is described in terms of linear operators that transform Feynman amplitudes of UV-divergent subdiagrams into polynomials of degree that is less or equal than the UV degree of divergence of the subdiagram. So we can say that this is a modification of Scherbina-Zavyalov-Stepanov-Zimmermann forest formula. This subtraction is equivalent to the on-shell renormalization, so we don't need any "residual renormalizations" or other manipulations with finite values that are obtained by this procedure. The method can be used for numerical calculation at high orders of perturbation.

        XQCAT: a model independent analysis of new heavy quarks at the LHC 30m
        New heavy quarks are predicted in various scenarios of new physics; depending on their nature they can mix with SM quarks or they can even mediate the production of dark matter states. Theoretically-motivated scenarios of new physics in general predict the existence of multiple new quarks with different couplings with the SM states or dark matter. Experimental searches of new quarks at the LHC, on the other hand, have so far mostly tested minimal extensions of the SM with new quarks which decay into the third family of SM quarks. No signals have been detected, pushing mass limits above 600-800 GeV, depending on different assumptions about their couplings to SM states. The reinterpretation of mass bounds from experimental searches to test theoretical models is therefore not always straightforward. I will describe model independent methods to recast data from experimental searches. These methods have been implemented in a tool called XQCAT (eXtra Quark Combined Analysis Tool). Considering data from a set of experimental searches at the LHC, XQCAT allows to determine the exclusion confidence level for general scenarios with any number of new heavy quarks which can mix with all SM families. Prospects for the extension of the tool to analyse scenarios where the new heavy quarks couple to dark matter will be discussed as well.

        Resolving Color and Kinematics for QCD Amplitudes 20m
        We explore implications of the color-kinematics duality for quantum chromodynamics with massive quarks. We work out a decomposition n-point tree amplitudes in a small basis of color-ordered "primitive'' amplitudes, using general properties of color and kinematics. First, we decompose the full scattering amplitude with 2k quarks and (n-2k) gluons in terms of the Melia basis, which consists of (n-2)!/k! primitives independent under color-algebra (Kleiss-Kuijf) relations. We find their color factors in that decomposition for an arbitrary gauge group. Then we analyze the kinematic-algebra amplitude relations that follow from the color-kinematics duality. The duality is shown to hold in amplitudes with massive Dirac fermions in the fundamental representation for up to eight particles. This gives strong evidence that QCD obeys the color-kinematics duality, at least at tree level. We identify the new (massive) amplitude relations in QCD and show that they map to a well-defined subset of the familiar BCJ relations for gluons. They restrict the amplitude basis further down to (n-3)!(2k-2)/k! primitives, in case of two or more quark lines. We give a decomposition of the full amplitude in that basis. All results in this paper generalize to supersymmetric extensions of QCD.

        The energy evolution of dark matter halos: how to fit observational data? 20m
        The question of the density profile of dark matter halos is extremely important for various topics of the dark matter physics. In principle, it can shed light on the physical nature of the dark matter. Now the contradiction between the standard dark matter paradigm and observations seems obvious. The main aim of the talk is to discuss the ways to agree theory with observations. We show that it is the energy evolution of a forming halo that determines the shape of its density profile. If the energy relaxation is moderate, the profile has a central core, and its shape exactly the profile that observations suggest for the central region of galaxies. If the dark matter halos have cores, it leads to many important consequences. A very general cosmological consideration suggests that, along with galactic dark matter halos, much smaller dark matter structures may exist. These structures are usually called 'clumps', and their mass extends to $10^{-6} M_\odot$ or even lower. The clumps should give the main contribution into the signal of dark matter annihilation, provided that they have survived until the present time. We consider cored clumps and show that they are significantly less firm than the standard cuspy ones.

        Beyond NNLL' qT resummation with CuTe 30m
        qT spectra of massive bosons at hadron colliders provide important tests of the Standard Model. In the crucial region, where the boson's invariant mass M is much smaller than its transverse momentum qT, the spectra are very sensitive to initial state radiation. Applying soft-collinear effective theory, a universal framework for its description has been established and the relevant perturbative operators have been extracted up to next-to-next-to leading order (NNLO). For any heavy color neutral final state, these results enable us to resum logarithms of qT/M beyond next-to-next-to leading logarithmic (NNLL) accuracy and to consistently match to the corresponding NNLO fixed order result. For Drell-Yan, Z, W and H production we implemented this in the program CuTe. As two important examples, we present the qT spectra of Z and H production to NNLO+NNNLLp accuracy and confront these results with LHC data.

        Recent developments in the fast reproduction of QCD calculations with the APPLgrid project 20m
        Recent developments in the fast reproduction of the results of QCD calculations using the APPLgrid project are presented. The calculation of cross-sections at Next-to-Leading order in QCD involves the integration over the final state phase space in order to cancel the infra-red divergences. For the calculation of cross sections for observables at hadron-hadron colliders this integration requires the Monte Carlo generation of a large number of event weights. These calculations typically need to be repeated if a different choice of parton densities within the proton are required or a different choice of factorisation or renormalisation scales. This makes the full calculation with many of the available parton density function error sets, and indeed the inclusion of these calculations in iterative fits to the proton parton densities, computationally prohibitive. The APPLgrid project allows the {\em a posteriori} inclusion of the parton densities in the calculation of the cross section by storing the weights from the Monte Carlo integration over the hard-subprocess phase space from the underlying QCD Calculation code in a look-up table so that the full calculation need be performed only once, after which the cross section can be recreated with any parton density set using a fast convolution over the stored weights This reduces the time required to obtain the cross section from many days, down to a few milliseconds. Detailed examples from the increasingly large menagery of QCD calculations of physics processes interfaced to APPLgrid will be presented.
