Two component dark matter with multi-Higgs portals

Bian, Ligong; Li, Tianjun; Shu, Jing; Wang, Xiao-ChuanSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

With the assistance of two extra groups, i.e., an extra hidden gauge group SU(2)(D) and a global U(1) group, we propose a two component dark matter (DM) model. After the symmetry SU(2)(D) x U(1) being broken, we obtain both the vector and scalar DM candidates. The two DM candidates communicate with the standard model (SM) via three Higgs as multi-Higgs portals. The three Higgs are mixing states of the SM Higgs, the Higgs of the hidden sector and real part of a supplement complex scalar singlet. We study relic density and direct detection of DM in three scenarios. The resonance behaviors and interplay between the two component DM candidates are represented through investigating of the relic density in the parameter spaces of the two DMs masses. The electroweak precision parameters constrains the two Higgs portals couplings (lambda(m) and delta(2)). The relevant vacuum stability and naturalness problem in the parameter space of lambda(m) and delta(2) are studied as well. The model could alleviate these two problems in some parameter spaces under the constraints of electroweak precision observables and Higgs indirect search. |

Interpretation of the Galactic Center excess and electroweak phase transition in the NMSSM

Bi, Xiao-Jun; Bian, Ligong; Huang, Weicong; Shu, Jing; Yin, Peng-FeiSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

The gamma-ray excess observed by the Fermi-LAT in the Galactic Center can be interpreted by the dark matter annihilation to b (b) over bar via a light pseudoscalar in the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model (NMSSM). It is interesting to note that the corresponding singlet scalar is useful to achieve a strongly first-order phase transition required by the electroweak baryogenesis. In this paper, we investigate the possibility that the NMSSM model can simultaneously accommodate these two issues. The phase transition strength can be characterized by the vacua energy gap at zero temperature and be sufficiently enhanced by the tree-level effect in the NMSSM. We find that the annihilation of singlino/Higgsino dark matter (DM) particles occurring close to the light pseudoscalar resonance is favored by the Galactic Center excess and the observed DM relic density, and some resulting regions in the parameter space with a small kappa/lambda. and a negative A. can simultaneously account for a successful strongly first-order electroweak phase transition. |

We present a class of cancellation conditions for suppressing the total contributions of Barr-Zee diagrams to the electron electric dipole moment (eEDM). Such a cancellation is of particular significance after the new eEDM upper limit was released by the ACME Collaboration, which strongly constrains the allowed magnitude of CP violation in Higgs couplings and hence the feasibility of electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG). Explicitly, if both the CP-odd Higgs-photon-photon (Z boson) and the CP-odd Higgs-electron-positron couplings are turned on, a cancellation may occur either between the contributions of a CP-mixing Higgs boson, with the other Higgs bosons being decoupled, or between the contributions of CP-even and CP-odd Higgs bosons. With a cancellation, large CP violation in the Higgs sector is still allowed, yielding successful EWBG. The reopened parameter regions would be probed by future neutron, mercury EDM measurements, and direct measurements of Higgs CP properties at the Large Hadron Collider Run II and future colliders. |

Prospects for triple gauge coupling measurements at future lepton colliders and the 14 TeV LHC

Bian, Ligong; Shu, Jing; Zhang, YongchaoSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

The W W production is the primary channel to directly probe the triple gauge couplings. We first analyze the e (+) e (-) -> W (+) W (-) process at the future lepton collider, China's proposed Circular Electron-Positron Collider (CEPC). We use the five kinematical angles in this process to constrain the anomalous triple gauge couplings and relevant dimension six operators at the CEPC up to the order of magnitude of 10(-4). The most sensible information is obtained from the distributions of the production scattering angle and the decay azimuthal angles. We also estimate constraints at the 14 TeV LHC, with both 300 fb(-1) and 3000 fb(-1) integrated luminosity from the leading lepton p (T) and azimuthal angle difference Delta I center dot (ll) distributions in the di-lepton channel. The constrain is somewhat weaker, up to the order of magnitude of 10(-3). The limits on the triple gauge couplings are complementary to those on the electroweak precision observables and Higgs couplings. Our results show that the gap between sensitivities of the electroweak and triple gauge boson precision can be significantly decreased to less than one order of magnitude at the 14 TeV LHC, and that both the two sensitivities can be further improved at the CEPC. |

Hidden confining world on the 750 GeV diphoton excess

Bian, Ligong; Chen, Ning; Liu, Da; Shu, JingSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We explain the recent diphoton excesses around 750 GeV by both ATLAS and CMS as a singlet scalar Phi which couples to SM gluon and neutral gauge bosons only through higher-dimensional operators. A natural explanation is that Phi is a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson (pNGB) which receives parity violation through anomaly if there exists a hidden strong dynamics. The singlet and other light pNGBs will decay into two SM gauge bosons and even serves as the metastable colored states which can be probed in the future. By accurately measuring their relative decay and the total production rate in the future, we will learn the underlying strong dynamics parameter. The lightest baryon in this confining theory could serve as a viable dark matter candidate. |

Impact of a complex singlet: Electroweak baryogenesis and dark matter

Jiang, Minyuan; Bian, Ligong; Huang, Weicong; Shu, JingSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

With the assistance of a complex singlet, and an effective operator involving CP violations, the dark matter relic abundance and baryon asymmetry of the universe have been addressed simultaneously. We studied the electroweak baryogenesis mechanism systematically. The electroweak phase transition analysis indicates that the strong first order phase transition takes place by one-step or two-step type due to the dynamics of the energy gap between the electroweak vacuum and the vacuum of the complex singlet. The relation between the magnitude of baryon asymmetry of the universe and the phase transition type and strength has been explored in the framework of electroweak baryogenesis. |
