Abstract meson muoproduction at COMPASS using 160 GeV/$$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$c polarised and$$ \mu ^{+}$$ ${\mu}^{+}$ beams impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. The measurement covers the kinematic range 5.0 GeV/$$ \mu ^{}$$ ${\mu}^{}$$$c^2$$ ${c}^{2}$ 17.0 GeV/$$< W<$$ $<W<$ , 1.0 (GeV/$$c^2$$ ${c}^{2}$c )$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$ 10.0 (GeV/$$< Q^2<$$ $<{Q}^{2}<$c ) and 0.01 (GeV/$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$c )$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$ 0.5 (GeV/$$< p_{\textrm{T}}^2<$$ $<{p}_{\text{T}}^{2}<$c ) . Here,$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$W denotes the mass of the final hadronic system, the virtuality of the exchanged photon, and$$Q^2$$ ${Q}^{2}$ the transverse momentum of the$$p_{\textrm{T}}$$ ${p}_{\text{T}}$ meson with respect to the virtualphoton direction. The measured nonzero SDMEs for the transitions of transversely polarised virtual photons to longitudinally polarised vector mesons ($$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$ ) indicate a violation of$$\gamma ^*_T \rightarrow V^{ }_L$$ ${\gamma}_{T}^{\ast}\to {V}_{L}^{}$s channel helicity conservation. Additionally, we observe a dominant contribution of naturalparityexchange transitions and a very small contribution of unnaturalparityexchange transitions, which is compatible with zero within experimental uncertainties. The results provide important input for modelling Generalised Parton Distributions (GPDs). In particular, they may allow one to evaluate in a modeldependent way the role of parton helicityflip GPDs in exclusive production.$$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$ 
Abstract We explore properties of the family sizes arising in a linear birth process with immigration (BI). In particular, we study the correlation of the number of families observed during consecutive disjoint intervals of time. Letting
S (a ,b ) be the number of families observed in (a ,b ), we study the expected sample variance and its asymptotics forp consecutive sequential samples , for$$S_p =(S(t_0,t_1),\dots , S(t_{p1},t_p))$$ ${S}_{p}=(S({t}_{0},{t}_{1}),\cdots ,S({t}_{p1},{t}_{p}))$ . By conditioning on the sizes of the samples, we provide a connection between$$0=t_0 $0={t}_{0}<{t}_{1}<\cdots <{t}_{p}$ and$$S_p$$ ${S}_{p}$p sequential samples of sizes , drawn from a single run of a Chinese Restaurant Process. Properties of the latter were studied in da Silva et al. (Bernoulli 29:1166–1194, 2023.$$n_1,n_2,\dots ,n_p$$ ${n}_{1},{n}_{2},\cdots ,{n}_{p}$https://doi.org/10.3150/22BEJ1494 ). We show how the continuoustime framework helps to make asymptotic calculations easier than its discretetime counterpart. As an application, for a specific choice of , where the lengths of intervals are logarithmically equal, we revisit Fisher’s 1943 multisampling problem and give another explanation of what Fisher’s model could have meant in the world of sequential samples drawn from a BI process.$$t_1,t_2,\dots , t_p$$ ${t}_{1},{t}_{2},\cdots ,{t}_{p}$ 
Abstract We study the singular set in the thin obstacle problem for degenerate parabolic equations with weight
for$$y^a$$ ${\lefty\right}^{a}$ . Such problem arises as the local extension of the obstacle problem for the fractional heat operator$$a \in (1,1)$$ $a\in (1,1)$ for$$(\partial _t  \Delta _x)^s$$ ${({\partial}_{t}{\Delta}_{x})}^{s}$ . Our main result establishes the complete structure and regularity of the singular set of the free boundary. To achieve it, we prove AlmgrenPoon, Weiss, and Monneau type monotonicity formulas which generalize those for the case of the heat equation ($$s \in (0,1)$$ $s\in (0,1)$ ).$$a=0$$ $a=0$ 
Abstract A search for exotic decays of the Higgs boson (
) with a mass of 125$$\text {H}$$ $\text{H}$ to a pair of light pseudoscalars$$\,\text {Ge}\hspace{.08em}\text {V}$$ $\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Ge}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{V}$ is performed in final states where one pseudoscalar decays to two$$\text {a}_{1} $$ ${\text{a}}_{1}$ quarks and the other to a pair of muons or$${\textrm{b}}$$ $\text{b}$ leptons. A data sample of proton–proton collisions at$$\tau $$ $\tau $ corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 138$$\sqrt{s}=13\,\text {Te}\hspace{.08em}\text {V} $$ $\sqrt{s}=13\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Te}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{V}$ recorded with the CMS detector is analyzed. No statistically significant excess is observed over the standard model backgrounds. Upper limits are set at 95% confidence level ($$\,\text {fb}^{1}$$ $\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\text{fb}}^{1}$ ) on the Higgs boson branching fraction to$$\text {CL}$$ $\text{CL}$ and to$$\upmu \upmu \text{ b } \text{ b } $$ $\mu \mu \phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$ via a pair of$$\uptau \uptau \text{ b } \text{ b },$$ $\tau \tau \phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}},$ s. The limits depend on the pseudoscalar mass$$\text {a}_{1} $$ ${\text{a}}_{1}$ and are observed to be in the range (0.17–3.3)$$m_{\text {a}_{1}}$$ ${m}_{{\text{a}}_{1}}$ and (1.7–7.7)$$\times 10^{4}$$ $\times {10}^{4}$ in the$$\times 10^{2}$$ $\times {10}^{2}$ and$$\upmu \upmu \text{ b } \text{ b } $$ $\mu \mu \phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$ final states, respectively. In the framework of models with two Higgs doublets and a complex scalar singlet (2HDM+S), the results of the two final states are combined to determine upper limits on the branching fraction$$\uptau \uptau \text{ b } \text{ b } $$ $\tau \tau \phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$ at 95%$${\mathcal {B}}(\text {H} \rightarrow \text {a}_{1} \text {a}_{1} \rightarrow \ell \ell \text{ b } \text{ b})$$ $B(\text{H}\to {\text{a}}_{1}{\text{a}}_{1}\to \ell \ell \phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{b})$ , with$$\text {CL}$$ $\text{CL}$ being a muon or a$$\ell $$ $\ell $ lepton. For different types of 2HDM+S, upper bounds on the branching fraction$$\uptau $$ $\tau $ are extracted from the combination of the two channels. In most of the Type II 2HDM+S parameter space,$${\mathcal {B}}(\text {H} \rightarrow \text {a}_{1} \text {a}_{1} )$$ $B(\text{H}\to {\text{a}}_{1}{\text{a}}_{1})$ values above 0.23 are excluded at 95%$${\mathcal {B}}(\text {H} \rightarrow \text {a}_{1} \text {a}_{1} )$$ $B(\text{H}\to {\text{a}}_{1}{\text{a}}_{1})$ for$$\text {CL}$$ $\text{CL}$ values between 15 and 60$$m_{\text {a}_{1}}$$ ${m}_{{\text{a}}_{1}}$ .$$\,\text {Ge}\hspace{.08em}\text {V}$$ $\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Ge}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{V}$ 
Abstract The elliptic flow
of$$(v_2)$$ $\left({v}_{2}\right)$ mesons from beautyhadron decays (nonprompt$${\textrm{D}}^{0}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ was measured in midcentral (30–50%) Pb–Pb collisions at a centreofmass energy per nucleon pair$${\textrm{D}}^{0})$$ ${\text{D}}^{0})$ TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The$$\sqrt{s_{\textrm{NN}}} = 5.02$$ $\sqrt{{s}_{\text{NN}}}=5.02$ mesons were reconstructed at midrapidity$${\textrm{D}}^{0}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ from their hadronic decay$$(y<0.8)$$ $\left(\righty<0.8)$ , in the transverse momentum interval$$\mathrm {D^0 \rightarrow K^\uppi ^+}$$ ${D}^{0}\to {K}^{}{\pi}^{+}$ GeV/$$2< p_{\textrm{T}} < 12$$ $2<{p}_{\text{T}}<12$c . The result indicates a positive for nonprompt$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ mesons with a significance of 2.7$${{\textrm{D}}^{0}}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ . The nonprompt$$\sigma $$ $\sigma $ meson$${{\textrm{D}}^{0}}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ is lower than that of prompt nonstrange D mesons with 3.2$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ significance in$$\sigma $$ $\sigma $ , and compatible with the$$2< p_\textrm{T} < 8~\textrm{GeV}/c$$ $2<{p}_{\text{T}}<8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{GeV}/c$ of beautydecay electrons. Theoretical calculations of beautyquark transport in a hydrodynamically expanding medium describe the measurement within uncertainties.$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$
