KEK Theory Meeting on Particle Physics Phenomenology (KEKPH2018)
at KEK ( Building 3 1F, Seminar Hall )
Description 
The annual Theory Meeting on Particle Physics Phenomenology (KEKPH2018) will be held at KEK between February 13  16, 2018. This meeting covers many topics in particle physics phenomenology, from the Standard Model and models beyond the Standard Model to particle cosmology and astrophysics. We aim to discuss recent developments in particle physics theories and learn about the latest results and status of various ongoing and planned experiments. Meeting program includes talks by invited speakers and short talks (about 20 min) by participants. All the talks will be given in English. We aim to provide an opportunity, not only for experts but also for master/Ph.D course students, to learn recent developments in particle physics phenomenology and to activate intensive discussions. The participants will also have the opportunity to present their work through poster presentations. There will be a Joint Session on the First day (after Lunch session) with another workshop at KEK  "Workshop on hadronic vacuum polarization contributions to muon g2".
Late registration is available with no financial and visa support.

Latetime magnetogenesis
30'
I discuss a latetime magnetogenesis scenario, which takes place after the epoch of electron/positron annihilation. It involves an ultralight axionlike particle, constituting the dark matter of the Universe, and a dark U(1) gauge boson introduced to bypass the obstacle from the relatively high conductivity of the cosmic plasma.

Axion coupled to hidden sector
30'
The QCD axion may be coupled to a hidden sector. As an example, I will discuss two scenarios in which the QCD axion is coupled to a hidden photon. In the first case, the axion is coupled to massless hidden photons, and such a coupling is known to induce tachyonic instabilities if the coupling is sufficiently strong. I will explain how the tachyonic preheating affects the final axion abundance based on the lattice simulations. In the second case, the axion is coupled to hidden photons in the presence of hidden monopoles. In this case the axion acquires an extra mass due to the Witten effect, which suppresses the final axion abundance.

Highenergy neutrinos from multibody decaying dark matter
20'
Since the report of the PeVTeV neutrinos by the IceCube Collaboration, various particle physics models have been proposed to explain the neutrino spectrum by dark matter particles decaying into neutrinos and other Standard Model particles. In such scenarios, simultaneous gammaray emission is commonly expected. Therefore, multimessenger connections are generally important for the indirect searches of dark matters. The recent development of gammaray astronomy puts stringent constraints on the properties of dark matter, especially by observations with the Fermi gammaray satellite in the last several years. Motivated by the lack of gammaray as well as the shape of the neutrino spectrum observed by IceCube, we discuss a scenario in which the DM is a PeV scale particle which couples strongly to other invisible particles and its decay products do not contain a charged particle. As an example to realize such possibilities, we consider a model of fermionic dark matter that decays into a neutrino and many invisible fermions. The dark matter decay is secluded in the sense that the emitted products are mostly neutrinos and dark fermions. One remarkable feature of this model is the resulting broadband neutrino spectra around the energy scale of the dark matter. We apply this model to multiPeV dark matter, and discuss possible observable consequences in light of the IceCube data. In particular, this model could account for the large flux at medium energies of 10 to 100 TeV, possibly as well as the second peak at PeV, without violating the stringent gammaray constraints from Fermi and airshower experiments such as CASAMIA.

Search for New physics with High multiplicity from High energy cosmic rays
20'
We explore the detectability of generic new physics process with highmultiplicity from UltraHigh energy (UHE) neutrinos (above 100 PeV) with the nucleon in the Earth atmosphere. The current sensitivity from the large area airshower ground detector arrays (PierreAuger and TA) are still above various astrophysical models of Cosmic Rays and GZK neutrino flux with large uncertainties. We consider the criterions for the trigger about neutrinoinduced new physics airshowers and heavynucleilike features for protoninduced new physics airshowers. We discuss the current bounds on O(10) TeV scale new physics and also the future prospects. Possible new physics interpretations of recent muon excess in highlyinclined airshowers at Pierre Auger and TA is also discussed.

Thermal Gravitational Contribution to Dark Matter Production
20'
This talk will be based on 1708.05138 and 1604.04701, We investigate the particle production from thermal gravitational annihilation in the very early universe, which is an important contribution for particles that might not be in thermal equilibrium or/and might only have gravitational interaction, such as dark matter. We give the relevant analytical formulas for spin 0, 1/2 and 1 particles and discuss some effects from inflation.

Enhanced AxionPhoton Coupling in a GUT with Hidden Photon
20'
There is a novel way to achieve the gauge coupling unification with an unbroken U(1), where the unification behavior is rather insensitive to the physics at intermediate scales. In this scheme, a hidden gauge coupling and a kinetic mixing are expected to be large. Consequently, a coupling of a QCD axion to the visible photon is significantly enhanced compared to conventional axion models. We show that this GUT scheme with the QCD axion can be testable by various future experiments.

Colored Dark Matter
30'
We explore the possibility that Dark Matter is the lightest hadron made of two stable color octet Dirac fermions $\Q$. The cosmological DM abundance is reproduced for $M_\Q\approx 9.5 \TeV$, compatibly with direct searches (the Rayleigh cross section, suppressed by $1/M_\Q^6$, is close to present bounds), indirect searches (enhanced by $\Q\Q+\bar\Q\bar\Q\to \Q\bar\Q+\Q\bar\Q$ recombination), and with collider searches (where $\Q$ manifests as tracks, pair produced via QCD). Hybrid hadrons, made of $\Q$ and of SM quarks and gluons, have large QCD cross sections, and do not reach underground detectors. Their cosmological abundance is $10^5$ times smaller than DM, such that their unusual signals seem compatible with bounds. Those in the Earth and stars sank to their centers; the Earth crust and meteorites later accumulate a secondary abundance, although their present abundance depends on nuclear and geological properties that we cannot compute from first principles.

Addressing theoretical uncertainties in direct dark matter searches
30'
The interpretation of any experiment probing the dark matter distribution inside the Solar System is subject to our ignorance of the local dark matter density and velocity distribution, as well as our ignorance of the nature and strength of the dark matternucleon interaction. In this talk we present new ideas to interpret the outcome of direct detection experiments without making assumptions of the velocity distribution, and to confront a positive signal to a null search experiment in a haloindependent and modelindependent manner.

Recent PandaXII Results on Dark Matter Search and PandaX4T Upgrade Plan
30'
PandaX experiment, located at China JinPing underground Laboratory (CJPL), is a 500kg scale liquid xenon dark matter direct detection experiment. With the first 98.7day data, PandaXII experiment obtained stringent upper limits on the spinindependent (SI) and spindependent (SD) WIMPnucleon elastic scattering cross sections. Alternative models of dark matter are also explored using this data. Meanwhile, PandaX collaboration has launched an upgrade plan to build PandaX4T detector with 4ton liquid xenon in the active volume. The PandaX4T experiment will be relocated to CJPLII and is expected to run after 2020. Detailed simulation indicates that the sensitivity on SI WIMPnucleon scattering cross section could reach 10^{47} cm^2 after twoyear's running

Weak Gravity Conjecture, Multiple Point Principle and the Standard Model Landscape
20'
The requirement for an ultraviolet completable theory to be wellbehaved upon compactification has been suggested as a guiding principle for distinguishing the landscape from the swampland. Motivated by the weak gravity conjecture and the multiple point principle, we investigate the vacuum structure of the standard model compactified on S^1$ and T^2. The measured value of the Higgs mass implies, in addition to the electroweak vacuum, the existence of a new vacuum where the Higgs field value is around the Planck scale. We explore two and threedimensional critical points of the moduli potential arising from compactifications of the electroweak vacuum as well as this high scale vacuum, in the presence of Majorana/Dirac neutrinos and/or axions. We point out potential sources of instability for these lower dimensional critical points in the standard model landscape. We also point out that a high scale AdS_4 vacuum of the Standard Model, if exists, would be at odd with the conjecture that all nonsupersymmetric AdS vacua are unstable. We argue that, if we require a degeneracy between three and fourdimensional vacua as suggested by the multiple point principle, the neutrinos are predicted to be Dirac, with the mass of the lightest neutrino O(110)meV, which may be tested by future CMB, large scale structure and 21cm line observations.

Gravitational wave emission and oscillon formation in string axiverse
20'
I will discuss cosmological implications of string axion dark matter whose potential has a pleateu region far from the minimum. Depending on parameters and initial values, axion self interactions can cause strong parametric resonances and, as a result, a significant amount of gravitational waves can be emitted followed by oscillon formations — a quasistable solitonlike object.

A link between the EW physics and the Higgs inflation
20'
We discuss cosmology in a scale invariant model with renormalization prescription which preserves the scale invariance even at quantum level. The difference in renormalization prescription (preserving or breaking the scale invariance) has significant impacts both on early and late time cosmology. We also discuss a theoretical aspect that such models with quantum scale invariance are nonrenormalizable and hence interpreted as effective field theory. The associated cutoff scale can be higher than the Hubble scale during inflation and it’s possible to make a prediction of the inflationary observables within the effective field theory.

Naturalizing SUSY with the Relaxion and the Inflaton

The LHC Run II superpartner mass limits have exacerbated the tuning in supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model. A possible way to explain this tuning is via a twofield relaxion mechanism, where the second field is identified with the inflaton. I will discuss the implications of the relaxioninflaton dynamics for supersymmetry and inflation, as well as the prospects for detecting this new invisible sector in future experiments.

Hidden sector behind the quark mixing
30'
The small quark mixing, described by the CabibboKobayashiMaskawa (CKM) matrix in the Standard Model, may be a clue to reveal new physics around the TeV scale. We consider a simple scenario that extra particles in a hidden sector radiatively mediate the flavor violation to the quark sector around the TeV scale and effectively realize the observed CKM matrix. The lightest particle in the hidden sector, whose contribution to the CKM matrix is expected to be dominant, is a good dark matter (DM) candidate, so we focus on the contribution, and discuss the DM physics. In this scenario, there is an explicit relation between the CKM matrix and flavor violating couplings, such as fourquark couplings, because both are radiatively induced by the particles in the hidden sector. Then, we can explicitly find the DM mass region and the size of Yukawa couplings between the DM and quarks, based on the study of flavor physics and DM physics. In conclusion, we show that DM mass in our scenario is around the TeV scale, and the Yukawa couplings are between O(0.01) and O(1). The spinindependent DM scattering cross section is estimated as O(10^9) [pb]. We also introduce the light dark matter scenario.

After a review of tensions in chargedcurrent and rare B decays and their interpretation in beyond SM scenarios, we focus on some developments that aim to improve theoretical control. Progress on QED corrections to leptonic decays B_s > mu mu and B_u > mu nu has been made, that was required in view of the current accuracy providing in the future precision at the percent level to shortdistance quantities. A novel approach to the hadronic charm contribution in rare b> s ll decays builds on a combined analysis of b>s ll and b> s (ccbar) > ll decays to separate hadronic contributions from new physics signals.

Quark jet fraction in multijet final states and quark gluon discrimination

We calculate quark and gluon jet fraction in multijet final states based on perturbative QCD at double logarithmic accuracy. We derive a measurable scaling pattern of the fraction, which is related to a performance for quarkgluon jet tagging technique using QCD jet substructure. We also propose a datadriven method to use the tagging technique in large jet multiplicity.

We considered the process $pp \rightarrow H^{0} \rightarrow H^{\pm}W^{\mp} \rightarrow btw$ where $H^{0}$ is heavy Higgs boson, $H^{\pm}$ is charged Higgs boson. The final state is same as $t\bar{t}$ process but the kinematic properties are different. We develop the technique using difference of kinematic properties and multivariable analysis. Our analysis technique improve the sensitivity and may give the possibility to discover the additional Higgs at the LHC or HLLHC.

The top threshold effect in the $\gamma\gamma$ production at the LHC

We compute the top quark threshold contributions to the $\gamma\gamma$ production at the LHC. These contributions become significant when the invariant mass of the photon pair, $M_{\gamma\gamma}$ just exceeds two times the mass of the top quark and induce some features in the $M_{\gamma\gamma}$ distribution. We determine the magnitude of this threshold effect and investigate other kinematic cuts which may enhance its significance.

HCOUP : Higher order calculations of Higgs observables in various extended Higgs sectors
20'
Recently, we calculated oneloop corrected Higgs boson couplings in various extended Higgs models, such as the Higgs singlet model, two Higgs doublet models and the inert doublet model (HCOUP project). In this calculation, we used the improved onshell scheme such that the gauge dependence does not appear in the renormalized Higgs boson couplings. Furthermore, applying this calculation of Higgs boson couplings, we have evaluated the Higgs boson decay widths including the NLO EW and QCD corrections. In this talk, we introduce the HCOUP project and discuss how we can discriminate extended Higgs models by detecting deviations from the standard model in Higgs observables at future precision measurements.

The Reach of Thermal Supersymmetric Dark Matter
20'
Although the relic density of supersymmetric dark matter is often much too high, it can be reduced through several processes. One of these processes, stop coannihilation, is very efficient at reducing the dark matter density. This process’s efficiency comes because of an enhancement to the stop anti stop scattering rate the final state is the longitudinal mode of the W or Z boson. Since the coupling of the stops to the Goldstone bosons is proportional to the Aterms, this scattering can be drastically enhanced for large Aterms. If the Aterms are too large, however, the Higgs mass will be suppressed and the stop coannihilation strip is not viable. Due to uncertainties in the Higgs mass calculators, it is unclear whether this really is an important constraint on the stop coannihilation strip. Taking the most up to date Higgs mass calculator and CMSSM input parameters, it is seen that the Higgs mass constraint excluded much of the stop coannihilation strip with larger values of the LSP mass. If subGUT type models are considered, the reduced running softens the effect of the large Aterms allowing large LSP masses to be consistent with the Higgs mass calculation.

Gluinomediated electroweak penguin with flavorviolating trilinear couplings
20'
In light of a discrepancy of the direct CP violation in K\to\pi\pi decays, \epsilon'/\epsilon_K, we investigate gluino contributions to the electroweak penguin, where flavor violations are induced by squark trilinear couplings. TopYukawa contributions to \Delta S=2 observables are taken into account, and vacuum stability conditions are evaluated in detail. It is found that this scenario can explain the discrepancy of \epsilon'/\epsilon_K for the squark mass smaller than 5.6 TeV. We also show that the gluing contributions can amplify Br(K\to \pi\nu\bar{\nu}), Br(K_S\to \mu^+ \mu^)_{Jeff} and \Delta A_{CP}(b\tps\gamma). Such large effects could be measured in future experiments.

LHCb anomaly and B physics in flavored Z′ models with flavored Higgs doublets
20'
We study an extended Standard Model with a gauged U(1)′ flavor symmetry, motivated not only by the fermion mass hierarchy but also by the excesses in B→K(∗)ll reported by the LHCb collaborations. The U(1)′ charges are assigned to quarks and leptons in a flavordependent manner, and flavored Higgs doublets are also introduced in order to detail the Yukawa couplings at the renormalizable level. Then, the fermion mass hierarchy is realized by the vacuum alignment of the Higgs doublets. In this model, flavorchanging currents involving the gauge boson of U(1)′ and the scalars generated by the Higgs doublets are predicted and the observables in the B→K(∗)ll process possibly deviate from the Standard Model predictions. We study the possibility that these new flavorchanging interactions can explain the excesses in the B→K(∗)ll process, and we derive some predictions for the other flavorviolating processes based on the analysis. We specifically investigate the ΔF=2 processes and the other B decays: e.g., B→Xsγ and B→D(∗)τν, where the deviations are reported by the Belle and BABAR collaborations.

Model independent evaluation of the Wilson coefficient of the Weinberg oparator in QCD

We derive a Wilson coefficient of a CPviolating purely gluonic dimension6 operator called the Weinberg operator (GGG~) generated by a scalar and two fermions at the twoloop level. We do not specify the representation of SU(3)$_c$ for the scalar and the fermions, and thus our result can be applied to a variety of models beyond the standard model. We estimate the nucleon EDMs induced by the Weinberg operator in some examples and discuss the importance of measuring EDMs. It is found that future measurements of the EDMs can probe physics at higher energy scale beyond the reach of collider experiments.

Ab initio study of HVP contributions to anomalous magnetic moments of all leptons
20'
We present the latest lattice QCD results by the BMW collaboration for the leadingorder contribution of the hadron vacuum polarization (LOHVP) to anomalous magnetic moments (g2) of all charged leptons. Our first principle predictions without recourse to any experimental inputs provide an independent crosscheck of phenomenological approaches and important indications for assessing the agreement of the standard model prediction for the muon (g2) with its measurement at ongoing/forthcoming experiments at Fermilab/JPARC. Calculations are performed with u, d, s and c quarks at their physical masses, in volumes of larger than 6 fm, and at six values of the lattice spacing, allowing for wellcontrolled continuum extrapolations, for both connected and disconnected diagrams. Systematic uncertainties are thoroughly discussed and comparisons with phenomenological estimates are made.

I will discuss some work in progress that explores whether a mildly finetuned Higgs boson, as in (mini)split supersymmetry, can have interesting or observable cosmological consequences. As moduli fields oscillate, the Higgs can respond and perhaps acquire very large values along a Dflat direction. Possible consequences involve a burst of gravitational wave production and an altered estimate of the number of efolds of inflation.

Search for Dark Neutrino via Vacuum Magnetic Birefringence Experiment
20'
We consider a dark matter model where a dark matter candidate couples to photons via an extra U(1) mediator and assume that this dark matter candidate is a fermion and can couple to the mediator with parity violation. We derived a low energy effective Lagrangian including a parity violated term for lightbylight scattering by integrating out the dark matter fermion. Our focus lies on Vacuum Magnetic Birefringence Experiment to probe the dark sector. We propose the ring resonator (34 mirrors) with an appropriate polarization state of light in stead of a usual FabryPerot resonator (2 mirrors) with a conventional polarization state of light to measure the Parity violated term. We assume that a dark neutrino is a dark matter, i.e. VA current, and give constraints on model parameters from a current experimental limit.

Majoron as the QCD axion in a radiative seesaw model
20'
The Standard Model of particle physics can explain the phenomena up to TeV scale. However, it has some serious problems. We propose the model which solves many of them. Our model is the simple combination of the color octet radiative seesaw model and the QCD axion model. It identifies the Lepton number breaking as the PQ number's one, and the mediator in the radiative seesaw model as the colored fermion in the QCD axion model. In this talk, we explain the model and the quantitative evaluation of it. This talk is based on the paper (Phys. Rev. D 96, 075039) with Ernest Ma (University of California) and Koji Tsumura (Kyoto University).

Probing new intraatomic force with isotope shifts
20'
In the development of atomic clocks, some atomic transition frequencies are measured with remarkable precision. These measured spectra may include effects of a new force mediated by a weakly interacting boson. Such effects might be distilled out from possible violation of a linear relation in isotope shifts between two transitions, as known as King's linearity, with relatively suppressed theoretical uncertainties. We discuss the experimental sensitivity to a new force in the test of the linearity as well as the linearity violation owing to higher order effects within the Standard Model. The sensitivity to new physics is limited by such effects. We have found that for Yb$^+$, the higher order effect is in the reach of future experiments. The sensitivity to a heavy mediator is also discussed. It is analytically clarified that the sensitivity becomes weaker than that in the literature. Our numerical results of the sensitivity are compared with other weak force search experiments.

Probing flavourviolating decays of squarks at the LHC
25'
We study squark decays beyond the Minimal Flavor Violation framework at the LHC. Considering mixing between the second and third generation squarks, we first provide the coverage of the current searches at the Run1 and Run2 of LHC in the context of a simplified model containing two active squark flavours. We then study the sensitivity of a dedicated search strategy involving leptons, jets, and missing transverse energy at the high luminosity run of LHC.

Beyond the LHC: physics goals and CERN's plans for future colliders
30'
The LHC performance continues to exceed expectations, and the experiments are entering a new highstatistics phase for their studies. The projections for the ultimate physics output of the LHC are being updated, and new plans are being drawn for next steps, with scenarios ranging from an energy upgrade of the LHC, to the construction of a new 100km circular collider facility. I will review the physics motivations that justify these future plans, and the status of the project definition.
