A measurement of the top quark pole mass
Rapid improvements in inexpensive, lowpower, movement and environmental sensors have sparked a revolution in animal behavior research by enabling the creation of data loggers (henceforth, tags) that can capture finegrained behavioral data over many months. Nevertheless, development of tags that are suitable for use with small species, for example, birds under 25 g, remains challenging because of the extreme mass (under 1

A<sc>bstract</sc> in events where a top quarkantiquark pair ($$ {m}_{\textrm{t}}^{\textrm{pole}} $$ ${m}_{t}^{\text{pole}}$ ) is produced in association with at least one additional jet ($$ \textrm{t}\overline{\textrm{t}} $$ $t\overline{t}$ +jet) is presented. This analysis is performed using protonproton collision data at$$ \textrm{t}\overline{\textrm{t}} $$ $t\overline{t}$ = 13 TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 36.3 fb^{−1}. Events with two oppositesign leptons in the final state (e^{+}e^{−},$$ \sqrt{s} $$ $\sqrt{s}$μ ^{+}μ ^{−}, e^{±}μ ^{∓}) are analyzed. The reconstruction of the main observable and the event classification are optimized using multivariate analysis techniques based on machine learning. The production cross section is measured as a function of the inverse of the invariant mass of the +jet system at the parton level using a maximum likelihood unfolding. Given a reference parton distribution function (PDF), the top quark pole mass is extracted using the theoretical predictions at nexttoleading order. For the ABMP16NLO PDF, this results in$$ \textrm{t}\overline{\textrm{t}} $$ $t\overline{t}$ = 172$$ {m}_{\textrm{t}}^{\textrm{pole}} $$ ${m}_{t}^{\text{pole}}$. 93± 1. 36 GeV. 
Abstract Leptoquarks (
s) are hypothetical particles that appear in various extensions of the Standard Model (SM), that can explain observed differences between SM theory predictions and experimental results. The production of these particles has been widely studied at various experiments, most recently at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and stringent bounds have been placed on their masses and couplings, assuming the simplest beyondSM (BSM) hypotheses. However, the limits are significantly weaker for$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ models with family nonuniversal couplings containing enhanced couplings to thirdgeneration fermions. We present a new study on the production of a$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ at the LHC, with preferential couplings to thirdgeneration fermions, considering protonproton collisions at$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ and$$\sqrt{s} = 13 \, \textrm{TeV}$$ $\sqrt{s}=13\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ . Such a hypothesis is well motivated theoretically and it can explain the recent anomalies in the precision measurements of$$\sqrt{s} = 13.6 \, \textrm{TeV}$$ $\sqrt{s}=13.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ meson decay rates, specifically the$$\textrm{B}$$ $\text{B}$ ratios. Under a simplified model where the$$R_{D^{(*)}}$$ ${R}_{{D}^{(\ast )}}$ masses and couplings are free parameters, we focus on cases where the$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ decays to a$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ lepton and a$$\tau $$ $\tau $ quark, and study how the results are affected by different assumptions about chiral currents and interference effects with other BSM processes with the same final states, such as diagrams with a heavy vector boson,$$\textrm{b}$$ $\text{b}$ . The analysis is performed using machine learning techniques, resulting in an increased discovery reach at the LHC, allowing us to probe new physics phase space which addresses the$$\textrm{Z}^{\prime }$$ ${\text{Z}}^{\prime}$ meson anomalies, for$$\textrm{B}$$ $\text{B}$ masses up to$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ , for the high luminosity LHC scenario.$$5.00\, \textrm{TeV}$$ $5.00\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ 
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.$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ 
Abstract A generic search is presented for the associated production of a Z boson or a photon with an additional unspecified massive particle X,
, in protontagged events from proton–proton collisions at$${\textrm{pp}}\rightarrow {\textrm{pp}} +{{\textrm{Z}}}/\upgamma +{{\textrm{X}}} $$ $\text{pp}\to \text{pp}+\text{Z}/\gamma +\text{X}$ , recorded in 2017 with the CMS detector and the CMSTOTEM precision proton spectrometer. The missing mass spectrum is analysed in the 600–1600 GeV range and a fit is performed to search for possible deviations from the background expectation. No significant excess in data with respect to the background predictions has been observed. Modelindependent upper limits on the visible production cross section of$$\sqrt{s}=13\, \textrm{TeV}$$ $\sqrt{s}=13\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ are set.$${\textrm{pp}}\rightarrow {\textrm{pp}} +{{\textrm{Z}}}/\upgamma +{{\textrm{X}}} $$ $\text{pp}\to \text{pp}+\text{Z}/\gamma +\text{X}$ 
Abstract We obtain a new relation between the distributions
at different times$$\upmu _t$$ ${\mu}_{t}$ of the continuoustime totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) started from the step initial configuration. Namely, we present a continuoustime Markov process with local interactions and particledependent rates which maps the TASEP distributions$$t\ge 0$$ $t\ge 0$ backwards in time. Under the backwards process, particles jump to the left, and the dynamics can be viewed as a version of the discretespace Hammersley process. Combined with the forward TASEP evolution, this leads to a stationary Markov dynamics preserving$$\upmu _t$$ ${\mu}_{t}$ which in turn brings new identities for expectations with respect to$$\upmu _t$$ ${\mu}_{t}$ . The construction of the backwards dynamics is based on Markov maps interchanging parameters of Schur processes, and is motivated by bijectivizations of the Yang–Baxter equation. We also present a number of corollaries, extensions, and open questions arising from our constructions.$$\upmu _t$$ ${\mu}_{t}$
