A search for supersymmetry involving the pair production of gluinos decaying via offshell thirdgeneration squarks into the lightest neutralino
Maize (
In this study, four ear traits associated with corn production of Nested Association Mapping (NAM) population were analyzed using a full genetic model, and further, optimal genotype combinations and total genetic effects of current best lines, superior lines, and superior hybrids were predicted for each of the traits at four different locations. The analysis identified 21–34 highly significant SNPs (−
Predictions of genetic breeding values showed that different genotype combinations in different geographical regions may be better, and hybridline variety breeding with homozygote and heterozygote genotype combinations may have a greater potential to improve ear traits.

Abstract is reported. It exploits LHC proton–proton collision data at a centreofmass energy$$(\tilde{\chi }^0_1)$$ $\left({\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}\right)$ TeV with an integrated luminosity of 139 fb$$\sqrt{s} = 13$$ $\sqrt{s}=13$ collected with the ATLAS detector from 2015 to 2018. The search uses events containing large missing transverse momentum, up to one electron or muon, and several energetic jets, at least three of which must be identified as containing$$^{1}$$ ${}^{1}$b hadrons. Both a simple kinematic event selection and an event selection based upon a deep neuralnetwork are used. No significant excess above the predicted background is found. In simplified models involving the pair production of gluinos that decay via offshell top (bottom) squarks, gluino masses less than 2.44 TeV (2.35 TeV) are excluded at 95% CL for a massless Limits are also set on the gluino mass in models with variable branching ratios for gluino decays to$$\tilde{\chi }^0_1.$$ ${\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}.$$$b\bar{b}\tilde{\chi }^0_1,$$ $b\overline{b}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0},$ and$$t\bar{t}\tilde{\chi }^0_1$$ $t\overline{t}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}$$$t\bar{b}\tilde{\chi }^_1/\bar{t}b\tilde{\chi }^+_1.$$ $t\overline{b}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{}/\overline{t}b{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{+}.$

The scalar operator in the effective theory for new physics is indicated. We find that the forwardbackward asymmetry and$$R_{D^*}^{\tau /\ell }$$ ${R}_{{D}^{\ast}}^{\tau /\ell}$ polarization in$$\tau $$ $\tau $ and$$\bar{B} \rightarrow D^+ \tau ^{} \bar{\nu }_{\tau }$$ $\overline{B}\to {D}^{+}{\tau}^{}{\overline{\nu}}_{\tau}$ decays 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, radiative$$\Lambda _b \rightarrow \Lambda _c^+ \tau ^ \bar{\nu }_{\tau }$$ ${\Lambda}_{b}\to {\Lambda}_{c}^{+}{\tau}^{}{\overline{\nu}}_{\tau}$B decay,B mixing, and .$$Z \rightarrow b \bar{b}$$ $Z\to b\overline{b}$ 
A search for hiddencharm pentaquark states decaying to a range of${\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{c}\overline{D}$and${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{c}^{+}\overline{D}$final states, as well as doubly charmed pentaquark states to${\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{c}D$and${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{c}^{+}D$, is made using samples of protonproton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of$5.7\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\mathrm{fb}}^{1}$recorded by the LHCb detector at$\sqrt{s}=13\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{TeV}$. Since no significant signals are found, upper limits are set on the pentaquark yields relative to that of the${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{c}^{+}$baryon in the${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{c}^{+}\to p{K}^{}{\pi}^{+}$decay mode. The known pentaquark states are also investigated, and their signal yields are found to be consistent with zero in all cases.

Abstract Magnetized plasma columns and extended magnetic structures with both footpoints anchored to a surface layer are an important building block of astrophysical dissipation models. Current loops shining in Xrays during the growth of plasma instabilities are observed in the corona of the Sun and are expected to exist in highly magnetized neutron star magnetospheres and accretion disk coronae. For varying twist and system sizes, we investigate the stability of linetied forcefree flux tubes and the dissipation of twist energy during instabilities using linear analysis and timedependent forcefree electrodynamics simulations. Kink modes (
m = 1) and efficient magnetic energy dissipation develop for plasma safety factorsq ≲ 1, whereq is the inverse of the number of magnetic field line windings per column length. Higherorder fluting modes (m > 1) can distort equilibrium flux tubes forq > 1 but induce significantly less dissipation. In our analysis, the characteristic pitch of fluxtube field lines determines the growth rate ( ${\tilde{\mu}}_{0}$ ) and minimum wavelength of the kink instability ( $\propto {\tilde{\mu}}_{0}^{3}$ ). We use these scalings to determine a minimum flux tube length for the growth of the kink instability for any given $\propto {\tilde{\mu}}_{0}^{1}$ . By drawing analogies to idealized magnetar magnetospheres with varying regimes of boundary shearing rates, we discuss the expected impact of the pitchdependent growth rates for magnetospheric dissipation in magnetar conditions. ${\tilde{\mu}}_{0}$ 
We report a measurement of decaytimedependent chargeparity ($CP$) asymmetries in${B}^{0}\to {K}_{S}^{0}{K}_{S}^{0}{K}_{S}^{0}$decays. We use$387\times {10}^{6}$$B\overline{B}$pairs collected at the$\mathrm{\Upsilon}(4S)$resonance with the Belle II detector at the SuperKEKB asymmetricenergy electronpositron collider. We reconstruct 220 signal events and extract the$CP$violating parameters$S$and$C$from a fit to the distribution of the decaytime difference between the two$B$mesons. The resulting confidence region is consistent with previous measurements in${B}^{0}\to {K}_{S}^{0}{K}_{S}^{0}{K}_{S}^{0}$and${B}^{0}\to (c\overline{c}){K}^{0}$decays and with predictions based on the standard model.
