We study an extension of the Standard Model featuring a hidden sector that consists of a new scalar charged under a new SU(N)D gauge group , singlet under all Standard Model gauge interactions, and coupled with the Standard Model only via a Higgs portal. We assume that the theory is classically conformal, with electroweak symmetry breaking dynamically induced via the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism operating in the hidden sector. Due to the symmetry breaking pattern, the SU(N)D gauge group is completely Higgsed and the resulting massive vectors of the hidden sector constitute a stable dark matter candidate. We perform a thorough scan over the parameter space of the model at different values of N = 2, 3, and 4, and investigate the phenomenological constraints. We find that N = 2, 3 provide the most appealing model setting in light of present data from colliders and dark matter direct search experiments. We expect a heavy Higgs to be discovered at LHC by the end of Run II or the N = 3 model to be ruled out. ...

Alanne, Tommi (University of Jyväskylä, 2015)In this thesis, we discuss ideas of how to go beyond the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics to incorporate the cosmological observations of dark matter and matter–antimatter asymmetry, and to address the theoretical ...
Determination of the θ23 octant in long baseline neutrino experiments within and beyond the standard model Das, C. R.; Pulido, João; Maalampi, Jukka; Vihonen, Sampsa (American Physical Society, 2018)The recent data indicate that the neutrino mixing angle θ 23 deviates from the maximal-mixing value of 45°, showing two nearly degenerate solutions, one in the lower octant (LO) ( θ 23 < 4 5 ° ) and one in the ...
