The 2nd “Asian-European-Institutes Workshop for BSM” will be held jointly with the 10th "KIAS Workshop on Particle Physics and Cosmology". This will be the first event in the series since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aim of this meeting is to gather theorists from participating institutes together to share their current research related to particle physics and cosmology, with a particular focus on BSM. Additionally, a number of overview talks from invited speakers have been organised to outline, and provide updates to, some broad classes of theoretical models. This joint workshop will provide opportunities for collaboration between researchers from different institutes, and help young researchers better promote themselves in the community. 

The event will be held at The Grand Sumorum, Jeju Island between Nov. 13-18, 2022 (ending after lunch on the Friday).

        Models for self-resonant dark matter

        We consider a new mechanism for enhancing the self-scattering and
        annihilation cross sections for dark matter with multiple components but without a
        light mediator. The lighter dark matter component plays a role of the u-channel
        pole in the elastic co-scattering for dark matter, leading to a large self-scattering
        cross section and a Sommerfeld enhancement for semi-annihilation processes.
        Taking the effective theory approach for self-resonant dark matter, we classify
        multiple dark matter components with spins and parities, showing a u-channel pole
        in the co-scattering processes. We introduce dark photon and dark Higgs portals
        and microscopic models for realistic self-resonant dark matter and discuss various
        observational consequences.

        Mediator Decays at Thresholds

        We study the decay processes of mediator particles, which are predicted
        in the light dark matter scenario, especially for the case in which their masses lie
        near the threshold region. We consider a vector mediator particle as an example,
        whose mass is around twice the muon or the bottom quark mass. We develop a
        method to quantitatively deal with the threshold singularity of the decay processes.
        We found that for the mass of the mediator being above the threshold, the decay
        width is enhanced by the so-called Sommerfeld effect. On the other hand, for the
        mass below the threshold, the decay width is also enhanced due to the mixing
        between the mediator and the bound states of the final state particles.

        Sensitivities to secret neutrino interaction at meson decay and short baseline neutrino experiments

        We study the impact of the coupling of neutrinos with a new light neutral
        gauge boson, Z′, with a mass of less than 500 {\rm MeV} in meson decay and short
        baseline neutrino experiments experiments.

        Non-Standard Interaction of atmospheric neutrino in future experiments

        We discuss the prospects of probing neutral-current non-standard
        interaction (NSI) in the propagation of atmospheric neutrinos in future large-volume
        neutrino experiments including DUNE, HK, KNO, and ORCA. Based on our
        simulated results, the ten years of data taking of the atmospheric neutrinos can
        enormously improve the bounds on the related NSI parameters by a couple of
        orders of magnitudes. In addition, we show the expected correlations between the
        CP-violation phase $\delta_{CP}$ and the related NSI parameters and confirm the
        potentials of DUNE, HK, KNO (combined with HK) in excluding the ``No CP
        violation" hypothesis at 1$\sigma$, 2$\sigma$, and 3$\sigma$, respectively.

        Testing electroweak scale seesaw models at $e^-\gamma$ and $\gamma\gamma$ collisions

        We investigate electroweak scale seesaw scenarios such as type-I, II
        and III seesaw in the context of $e^-\gamma$ and $\gamma\gamma$ colliders.
        The heavy neutrinos~(triplet fermions) can be produced at $e^-\gamma$ colliders
        in association with a W boson. We study LNV final state such as $e^{+} + 4j$
        where the associated W boson decay hadronically. We also consider the leptonic
        decay of the W boson giving rise to the same sign dilepton signal in association
        with jets and missing momentum. Studying these signals and generic backgrounds
        we estimate bounds on the light-heavy neutrino mixing angle from the
        $e^-\gamma$ collider which can provide stronger limits than the existing ones,
        atleast for relatively higher mass of heavy neutrinos. In case of type-II seesaw
        singly and doubly charged multiplets of the SU(2)L triplet scalar can be produced
        at $e^-\gamma$ and $\gamma\gamma$ colliders respectively. We study the
        leptonic decay modes of the charged multiplets which depend on the
        corresponding Yukawa coupling with the lepton doublet involving the light neutrino
        mass. We find that one can easily distinguish between neutrino mass hierarchy
        using these final states.

        Displaced Decay Signatures in Probing Seesaw

        Seesaw mechanisms are well motivated in explaining the tiny neutrino
        mass. We investigate the displaced vertex signatures at the LHC/FCC and muon
        colliders for Type-III and Type-I Seesaw scenarios, where we expect the heavy
        charged or neutral fermions to be displaced depending on their Yukawa couplings
        and masses. A very small Yukawa coupling can lead to two successive displaced
        decays in case of Type-III scenario. The prospects of the transverse and
        longitudinal displaced decay lengths are extensively studied in the context of the
        boost at the LHC/FCC and muon collider. In the case of the LHC/FCC, a detailed
        PYTHIA based simulation is performed to determine the parameter regions that
        are sensitive to CMS, ATLAS and MATHUSLA detectors at the centre of mass
        energies of 14, 27 and 100 TeV via displaced signatures. Similarly a futuristic
        study has been performed for the Type-III Seesaw at the muon collider with the
        centre of mass energies of 3.5, 14 and 30 TeV.

        Nucleon Decay and (Low-Scale) Pati-Salam

        The gauge bosons of Pati–Salam do not mediate proton decay at the renormalisable level, and for this reason it is possible to construct scenarios in which SU(4) ⊗ SU(2)R is broken at relatively low scales. Such low-scale models, however, appear to generate dimension-5 operators that can give rise to nucleon decays at unacceptably large rates, even if the operators are suppressed by the Planck scale. This suggests a serious difficulty in constructing consistent models of Pati-Salam with low scale PS breaking.

        An interplay between composite Dirac neutrinos and the QCD axion

        We consider a chiral gauge theory from which light composite Dirac
        neutrinos dynamically emerge, augmented by a QCD axion to solve the strong CP
        problem. We show that an interplay between the composite sector and the axion
        can also simultaneously lead to successful baryogenesis and generate a correct
        dark matter abundance via “co-genesis” without contradicting present constraints.
        We predict ∆Neff ≥ 0.14 and m_a in the range O(10) µeV–O(10) meV, which can
        be firmly tested by upcoming CMB experiments and axion searches.

        CP violation in gauged U(1)

        Recently ATLAS provided the constraint in an analysis of the Zjj channel
        which interprets measurements of dimension six CP-violating operators in SM
        effective field theory. If confirmed, this may be a signal of new CP violation beyond
        the Kobayashi-Maskawa phase in the SM. Then it would be an important and
        urgent question whether this new CP violation can explain the baryon asymmetry
        of the Universe by electroweak baryogenesis. We discuss a model which has
        CP-violating interactions at the electroweak scale.

        A Global Analysis of Resonance-enhanced Light Scalar Dark Matter

        We study a minimal model for a light scalar dark matter, requiring a light
        scalar mediator to address the core-cusp problem and interact with the standard
        model particles. We analyze the model comprehensively by focusing on the
        Breit-Wigner resonance for dark matter annihilation and self-scattering channels,
        considering the thermal relic abundance condition that includes the early kinetic
        decoupling effect, as well as the present and future constraints from collider, direct,
        and indirect dark matter detections. We found that the scalar dark matter with the
        mass of 0.3 - 2 GeV remains uncharted, which will be efficiently tested by the near
        future MeV gamma-ray observations.

        Complex Singlet Benchmarks at Future Collider Experiments

        We present benchmark parameters for the general complex scalar
        singlet model. The complex scalar singlet extension has three massive scalar
        states with interesting decay chains which will depend on the exact mass hierarchy
        of the system. We find maximum production rates for resonant double Standard
        Model-like Higgs production, resonant production of a Standard Model-like Higgs
        and a new scalar, and double resonant new scalar production.

        cold electroweak baryogenesis through halo collapse Remote


        I will present a very simple scenario where a Yukawa interaction causes
        metastable halos to form in the early Universe. When the halo collapses a fireball
        results with a temperature above that of the electroweak symmetry breaking scale.
        This fireball is functionally similar to an electroweak bubble, except the inside is
        where sphalerons are unsupressed. I then give a concrete scenario where the
        baryon asymmetry can be produced.

        Neutrinos and Non-Invertible Symmetry

        The notion of symmetries has been generalized rather drastically in
        recent years. These generalized global symmetries have shown to be extremely
        powerful in deepening our understanding of QFT. The appearance and usage of
        generalized global symmetries in particle physics are yet to be explored and this
        talk will provide one such story. In this talk, I will show that the SM supplemented
        with an extra unbroken U(1) gauge group can possess an non-invertible global
        symmetry and this new symmetry can protect the neutrino mass operator from
        being generated. An exponentially small neutrino mass can then be induced by a
        non-perturbative violation of non-invertible symmetry by UV monopoles. I will
        discuss two theories, one of which has Dirac neutrino masses, and the other
        Majorana masses. If time permits, TeV-scale phenomenology will be discussed.

        All the covariant tensor currents of massless particles in the covariant formulation

        We present an efficient algorithm for constructing all the covariant tensor
        currents of massless particles of arbitrary spins in the covariant formulation. This
        algorithm enables us to extract directly the field theoretical current structures from
        their three-point vertices and to find clearly the in-out matrix elements in the
        lightlike limit. We revisit the closely-related two restrictions on massless particles
        called the Landau-Yang (LY) and Weinberg-Witten (WW) theorems in terms of
        arbitrary spins. We find the covariance conditions on form factors leading to the
        corresponding tensor currents being covariant and verify that the continuity
        assumption of matrix elements taken for obtaining the WW theorem in the original
        paper is correct at least in quantum field theory involving conventional fields.

        Detectable Gravitational Waves from Preheating and Particle Physics Phenomenology

        Using the results of lattice simulation, we show that preheating can
        generate low-frequency Gravitational Waves (GWs) to be detectable within the
        future GWs detectors such as BBO, DECIGO, PTA, AION-MAGIS, and CE (in MeV
        - TeV ranges). We show that these stochastic GWs signals can act as a novel
        probe for various Particle Physics Phenomenology in the Early Universe, such as
        the origin of Dark Matter and the production of matter-antimatter asymmetry.

        Axion dark matter with thermal friction

        Cosmological evolution of the axion field in the early universe might be significantly affected by thermal friction induced by the axion coupling to the thermalized hidden sector. We examine the effects of such a thermal friction on axion dark matter density and its perturbation when the thermal friction dominates over the Hubble friction. We show that in the presence of sizable thermal friction there can be an exponential decay phase of the axion field before the oscillation phase, during which the axion energy density is efficiently dissipated into a hidden thermal bath. Consequently, the previously excluded parameter region due to overclosing relic axion density becomes cosmologically viable with thermal friction. In particular, a QCD axion much lighter than μeV is viable without tuning the initial misalignment angle. We also find that thermal friction can affect the density perturbation of axion dark matter in various ways. For instance, it can alleviate the large-scale isocurvature bound on axion dark matter in the pre-inflationary PQ breaking scenario, which would make the pre-inflationary axion dark matter compatible with high scale inflation over a wide range of model parameters. In the post-inflationary PQ breaking scenario, thermal friction can also significantly change the scaling behavior of axionic strings, and therefore the typical size of the resultant axion miniclusters.

        W boson mass anomaly and grand unification Remote


        It is known that the recently reported shift of the W boson mass can be
        easily explained by an SU(2)L triplet Higgs boson with a zero hypercharge if it
        obtains a vacuum expectation value (VEV) of O(1) GeV. Surprisingly, the addition
        of a TeV scale complex triplet Higgs boson to the standard model (SM) leads to a
        precise unification of the gauge couplings at around 10^{14} GeV. We consider
        that it is a consequence of SU(5) grand unification and show a possible potential
        for the Higgs fields yielding a weak scale complex SU(2) triplet scalar boson.
        Although it seems the proton decay constraint would doom such a low-scale
        unification, we show that the constraint can be avoided by introducing vector-like
        fermions which mix with the SM fermions through mass terms involving the VEV of
        th GUT breaking Higgs field. Importantly, the simplest viable model only requires
        the addition of one pair of vector-like fermions transforming 10 and 10.

        On Detection of Axion Dark Matter

        The axion is one of the most promising dark matter candidates. Since
        the axion is a very light particle, its quantum effects are very strong. For example,
        the interaction between the axion dark matter and detectors is subject to large
        corrections due to coherence effects and stimulated emission effects. In this talk I
        will discuss how these quantum effects affect the direct detection of the axion dark

        Imprints of Heavy Inflationary Particles on the Large Scale Structure

        The early universe had such an extremely high energy density that
        supermassive particles could have been produced. When heavy particles are pair
        produced during inflation via couplings to the inflaton, the particle mass generates
        a non-trivial curvature perturbation in position space. Even if the heavy particles no
        longer exist, the modified curvature perturbations are preserved before horizon
        re-entry and will generate locally-enhanced dark matter clumps or galaxy densities
        on the large-scale structure. We explore these signatures by studying the matter
        power spectrum and the abundance of massive halos, and discuss the discovery
        potential. We will go through the details of implementing the curvature
        perturbations in the N-body simulations with appropriately modifying initial
        conditions, and talk about several subtleties that we are currently coping with. It will
        allow us to properly include non-linear effects, and investigate a pairwise nature of
        signals which is difficult to study analytically. Finally, I will briefly introduce other
        interesting literatures that explore early universe models with using N-body
        simulations, and their general aspects.

        SU(3) symmetry and its breaking effects in charm baryon decays Remote


        We utilize the flavor SU(3) symmetry analysis on the semi-leptonic
        decays of anti-triplet charmed baryons($\Lambda^{+}_{c},\Xi_{c}^{+,0}$) to obtain
        the results of $\Xi_{c}$ branching fraction:
        $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_c^0\to\Xi^-\mu^+\nu_{\mu})=3.98\pm0.57\%$ and find a heavy
        deviation between the results of a process $\Xi_c^0\to\Xi^-l^+\nu$ :
        $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_c^0\to\Xi^-\mu^+\nu_{\mu})=1.27(06\pm10\pm 37)\%$ reported
        by Belle Collaboration and SU(3) flavor analysis. In this work, the contributions of
        vector and axial-vector currents in the semi-leptonic decay process of anti-triplet
        heavy baryons are considered and we respectively analyze their SU(3) symmetry
        breaking degrees to illustrate the big discrepancy between experimental data and
        SU(3) symmetry analysis. Recently Belle-II collaboration reported new
        measurements for the branching ratios for $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_c^0\to\Lambda K^0_S)$, $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_c^0\to\Sigma^0 K^0_S)$ and
        $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_c^0\to\Sigma^+ K^-)$. Combined with other known data on
        charmless two body decays of an anti-triplet charmed baryon, a lot of information
        can be derived with the assistance of flavor $SU(3)$ symmetry. Using $SU(3)$
        relations between different decay modes, we find that the new Belle-II data would
        predict $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_{c}^{0}\to p \pi^{-})=(5.817\pm1.79)\%$,
        $\mathcal{B}(\Xi_{c}^{0}\to p K^{-})=\mathcal{B}(\Xi_{c}^{0}\to \Sigma^{+} \pi^{-})=(1.113\pm0.349)\times 10^{-4}$ which can be tested in the future. Earlier
        data show that $\Xi^0_c \to \Xi^- K^+$ decays is violated at 2$\sigma$ level which
        casts duolt on the validity of $SU(3)$ symmetry. More careful analysis should be
        carried out. To this end, we find that with the new Bell-II data, a global fit to data is
        now possible if the $SU(3)$ irreducible amplitudes are all real. We find a resonable
        $\chi^2/d.o.f=1.24$ and the deviation for the $\Xi^0_c \to \Xi^- K^+$ is reduced to
        within 1$\sigma$ level. We give several comments on the feature of global fit. As a
        prediction, we predict the unknown branching ratios and asymmetry parameters of
        anti-triplet charmed baryon for charmless two body decays, which are accessible
        to the experiments at Belle, BES and LHCb.

        Interplay of Higgs Boson, Dark matter and Neutrinos

        We will discuss the various possibilities of beyond Standard Model
        scenarios involving Type-I seesaw and Inverse seesaw mechanism. The B-L
        gauge extension with a scalar dark matter scenario can have displaced decay
        signature while the dark matter freeze-out is via right-handed neutrino pair. The
        Type-X 2HDM is motivated to explain the muon (g-2) excess, if associated with the
        right-handed neutrinos, can lead to a new decay mode of charged Higgs decaying
        to charged lepton and the right-handed neutrino. A Type-I seesaw extension with
        one more Majorana fermion and singlet scalar can lead to loop induced dark
        matter-Higgs coupling and also gives rise to interesting phenomenology for the
        freeze-out and freeze-in scenarios.

        Discrete Goldstone Bosons

        In this talk, I will discuss discrete Goldstone bosons
        (dGB's), light particles arising from spontaneously broken exact discrete
        symmetries. These dGB's are guaranteed to have nonzero masses, while the
        associated discrete symmetry protects them from quadratically divergent mass
        contributions. The nonzero masses of dGB's arise directly from the discrete
        symmetry, without requiring an explicit symmetry breaking mechanism, setting
        dGB's apart from other pseudo-Goldstone bosons. After explaining the mass
        protection mechanism, I will discuss the generic experimental signals of dGB's.
        Below the spontaneous symmetry breaking scale, typically a preserved subset of
        the discrete symmetry remains, leading to a telltale signal of degenerate dGB's
        being produced simultaneously. Moreover, ratios of multi-scalar production
        amplitudes give a probe of the full UV discrete symmetry.

        Riemannian Data preprocessing in Machine Learning to focus on QCD color structure Remote


        Identifying the quantum chromodynamics (QCD) color structure of
        processes provides additional information to enhance the reach for new physics
        searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Analyses of QCD color structure in
        the decay process of a boosted particle have been spotted as information
        becomes well localized in the limited phase space. While these kind of a boosted
        jet analyses provide an efficient way to identify a color structure, the constrained
        phase space reduces the number of available data, resulting in a low significance.
        In this letter, we provide a simple but a novel data preprocessing method using a
        Riemann sphere to utilize a full phase space by de-correlating QCD structure from
        a kinematics. We can achieve a statistical stability by enlarging the size of testable
        data set with focusing on QCD structure effectively. We demonstrate the power of
        our method at the finite statistics of the LHC Run 2. Our method is complementary
        to conventional boosted jet analyses in utilizing QCD information over the wide
        range of a phase space.

        Exploring extended Higgs sectors via pair production at the LHC

        Higgs sectors extended by electroweakly charged scalars can be
        explored by scalar pair production at the LHC. We consider a fermiophobic
        scenario, with decays into a pair of gauge bosons, and a fermiophilic one, with
        decays into top and bottom quarks. After establishing the current bounds on
        simplified models, we discuss current bounds on various composite Higgs models,
        as well as potential discovery channels and search strategies for them.

        We demonstrate two sampling procedures assisted by machine learning
        models via regression and classification. The methods described can be used for
        different types of analysis on parameters spaces such as finding bounds and
        accumulating samples on areas of interest.

        A Large N expansion for Minimum Bias

        Despite being the overwhelming majority of events produced in hadron or heavy ion collisions, minimum bias events do not enjoy a robust first-principles theoretical description as their dynamics are dominated by low-energy quantum chromodynamics. I will present a novel expansion scheme of the cross section for minimum bias events that exploits an ergodic hypothesis for particles in the events, and events in an ensemble of data. The expansion parameter that is identified is the number of detected particles, N. This approach enables unified treatment of small and large system collective behaviour, for instance being equally applicable to collective behaviour in heavy ion collisions and pp collisions.

        Hidden dynamics of a sub-component dark matter

        In multi-component dark matter scenarios, dynamics of a
        sub-component dark matter has been often ignored. In this talk, I will be pointing
        out the hidden roles of a sub-component dark matter in the scenarios where the
        dominant relics interact with the Standard Model sector only indirectly through the
        sub-component. Distinctive cosmological dynamics of a sub-component dark
        matter will be discussed. The thermal evolution of the sub-component is
        significantly affected by the sizable self-scattering and the required annihilation
        cross section of the sub-component sharply increases as we consider a smaller
        relative abundance fraction among the dark-matter species. Therefore, contrary to
        a naive expectation, it can be easier to detect the sub-component with smaller
        abundance fractions in direct/indirect-detection experiments and cosmological

        Higgs Balls: Novel Non-Topological Solitons via Thermal Corrections Remote


        Global non-topological solitons (Q-balls) exist when the potential of a
        charged scalar field grows slower than quadratically. At zero temperature, this
        requires attractive interactions. However, this is not necessary at finite
        temperature, as the cubic term ~ T |phi|^3 generically has a negative coefficient.
        As a result, non-topological solitons exist at finite temperature in a variety of
        models which do not have non-topological solitons at zero temperature. To
        illustrate this, we focus on the Higgs boson (both in the Standard Model and in
        extensions), which requires generalizing our results to gauged Q-balls.

        RGE studies in the two-Higgs-doublet model

        The two-Higgs-doublet model is one of the most studied BSM models.
        The famous four types in the normal and inverted Higgs scenarios have different
        still-allowed parameter spaces, which satisfy the theoretical requirements and the
        experimental constraints at the electroweak scale. The high energy scale behavior
        through the renormalization group equation analysis yields the cutoff scale of the
        model. We will present the high-scale impact on the model parameters as well as a
        new way to disentangle the high and low cutoff scales.
