Title: Three-State Majority-vote Model on Scale-Free Networks and the Unitary Relation for Critical Exponents

We investigate the three-state majority-vote model for opinion dynamics on scale-free and regular networks. In this model, an individual selects an opinion equal to the opinion of the majority of its neighbors with probability 1 − q, and different to it with probabilityq. The parameterqis called the noise parameter of the model. We build a network of interactions wherezneighbors are selected by each added site in the system, a preferential attachment network with degree distributionkλ, whereλ = 3 for a large number of nodesN. In this work,zis called the growth parameter. Using finite-size scaling analysis, we obtain that the critical exponents$$\beta /\bar{\nu }$$β/ν¯and$$\gamma /\bar{\nu }$$γ/ν¯associated with the magnetization and the susceptibility, respectively. Using Monte Carlo simulations, we calculate the critical noise parameterqcas a function ofzfor the scale-free networks and obtain the phase diagram of the model. We find that the critical exponents add up to unity when using a special volumetric scaling, regardless of the dimension of the network of interactions. We verify this result by obtaining the critical noise and the critical exponents for the two and three-state majority-vote model on cubic lattice networks.

  1. Abstract

    We explain recent LHCb measurements of the lepton universality ratios,$$R_{D^{(*)}}^{\tau /\ell }\equiv \frac{\mathcal {B}(\bar{B} \rightarrow D^{(*)+} \tau ^- \bar{\nu }_\tau )}{\mathcal {B}(\bar{B} \rightarrow D^{(*)+}\ell ^- \bar{\nu }_\ell )}$$RD()τ/B(B¯D()+τ-ν¯τ)B(B¯D()+-ν¯)and$${R(\Lambda _c^+)}^{\tau /\ell } \equiv \frac{\mathcal {B}(\Lambda _b \rightarrow \Lambda _c^+ \tau ^- \bar{\nu }_{\tau })}{\mathcal {B}(\Lambda _b \rightarrow \Lambda _c^+ \ell ^- \bar{\nu }_{\ell })}$$R(Λc+)τ/B(ΛbΛc+τ-ν¯τ)B(ΛbΛc+-ν¯)with$$\ell =\mu $$=μ, via new physics that affects$$R_D^{\tau /\ell }$$RDτ/and$$R(\Lambda _c^+)^{\tau /\ell }$$R(Λc+)τ/but not$$R_{D^*}^{\tau /\ell }$$RDτ/. The scalar operator in the effective theory for new physics is indicated. We find that the forward-backward asymmetry and$$\tau $$τpolarization in$$\bar{B} \rightarrow D^+ \tau ^{-} \bar{\nu }_{\tau }$$B¯D+τ-ν¯τand$$\Lambda _b \rightarrow \Lambda _c^+ \tau ^- \bar{\nu }_{\tau }$$ΛbΛc+τ-ν¯τdecays are significantly affected by the scalar interaction. We construct a simple two Higgs doublet model as a realization of our scenario and consider lepton universality in semileptonic charm and top decays, radiativeBdecay,B-mixing, and$$Z \rightarrow b \bar{b}$$Zbb¯.

    This article presents a search for new resonances decaying into aZorWboson and a 125 GeV Higgs bosonh, and it targets the$$ \nu \overline{\nu}b\overline{b} $$νν¯bb¯,$$ {\ell}^{+}{\ell}^{-}b\overline{b} $$+bb¯, or$$ {\ell}^{\pm}\nu b\overline{b} $$±νbb¯final states, where=eorμ, in proton-proton collisions at$$ \sqrt{s} $$s= 13 TeV. The data used correspond to a total integrated luminosity of 139 fb1collected by the ATLAS detector during Run 2 of the LHC at CERN. The search is conducted by examining the reconstructed invariant or transverse mass distributions ofZhorWhcandidates for evidence of a localised excess in the mass range from 220 GeV to 5 TeV. No significant excess is observed and 95% confidence-level upper limits between 1.3 pb and 0.3 fb are placed on the production cross section times branching fraction of neutral and charged spin-1 resonances and CP-odd scalar bosons. These limits are converted into constraints on the parameter space of the Heavy Vector Triplet model and the two-Higgs-doublet model.

  3. Abstract

    We construct the extension of the curvilinear summation for bounded Borel measurable sets to the$$L_p$$Lpspace for multiple power parameter$$\bar{\alpha }=(\alpha _1, \ldots , \alpha _{n+1})$$α¯=(α1,,αn+1)when$$p>0$$p>0. Based on this$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-curvilinear summation for sets and the concept ofcompressionof sets, the$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-curvilinear-Brunn–Minkowski inequality for bounded Borel measurable sets and its normalized version are established. Furthermore, by utilizing the hypo-graphs for functions, we enact a brand new proof of$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯Borell–Brascamp–Lieb inequality, as well as its normalized version, for functions containing the special case of the$$L_{p}$$LpBorell–Brascamp–Lieb inequality through the$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-curvilinear-Brunn–Minkowski inequality for sets. Moreover, we propose the multiple power$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-supremal-convolution for two functions together with its properties. Last but not least, we introduce the definition of the surface area originated from the variation formula of measure in terms of the$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-curvilinear summation for sets as well as$$L_{p,\bar{\alpha }}$$Lp,α¯-supremal-convolution for functions together with their corresponding Minkowski type inequalities and isoperimetric inequalities for$$p\ge 1,$$p1,etc.

    This paper reports a search for Higgs boson pair (hh) production in association with a vector boson ($$W\; {\text {o}r}\; Z$$WorZ) using 139 fb$$^{-1}$$-1of proton–proton collision data at$$\sqrt{s}=13\,\text {TeV}$$s=13TeVrecorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The search is performed in final states in which the vector boson decays leptonically ($$W\rightarrow \ell \nu ,\, Z\rightarrow \ell \ell ,\nu \nu $$Wν,Z,ννwith$$\ell =e, \mu $$=e,μ) and the Higgs bosons each decay into a pair ofb-quarks. It targetsVhhsignals from both non-resonanthhproduction, present in the Standard Model (SM), and resonanthhproduction, as predicted in some SM extensions. A 95% confidence-level upper limit of 183 (87) times the SM cross-section is observed (expected) for non-resonantVhhproduction when assuming the kinematics are as expected in the SM. Constraints are also placed on Higgs boson coupling modifiers. For the resonant search, upper limits on the production cross-sections are derived for two specific models: one is the production of a vector boson along with a neutral heavy scalar resonanceH, in the mass range 260–1000 GeV, that decays intohh, and the other is the production of a heavier neutral pseudoscalar resonanceAthat decays into aZboson andHboson, where theAboson mass is 360–800 GeV and theHboson mass is 260–400 GeV. Constraints are also derived in the parameter space of two-Higgs-doublet models.

    Several extensions of the Standard Model predict the production of dark matter particles at the LHC. A search for dark matter particles produced in association with a dark Higgs boson decaying intoW+Win the$$ {\ell}^{\pm}\nu q{\overline{q}}^{\prime }, $$±νqq¯,final states with=e, μis presented. This analysis uses 139 fb1ofppcollisions recorded by the ATLAS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. TheW±$$ q\overline{q^{\prime }} $$qq¯decays are reconstructed from pairs of calorimeter-measured jets or from track-assisted reclustered jets, a technique aimed at resolving the dense topology from a pair of boosted quarks using jets in the calorimeter and tracking information. The observed data are found to agree with Standard Model predictions. Scenarios with dark Higgs boson masses ranging between 140 and 390 GeV are excluded.
