  • Higgs Potential and Naturalness After the Higgs Discoveryby Yuta Hamada

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 92.34

    This thesis focuses on the theoretical foundation of the Standard Model valid up to the Planck scale, based on the current experimental facts from the Large Hadron Collider. The thesis consists of two themes: (1) to open up a new window of the Higgs inflation scenario, and (2) to explore a new solution to the naturalness problem in particle physics. ... more...

  • Directed Polymers in Random Environmentsby Francis Comets

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 31.84

    Analyzing the phase transition from diffusive to localized behavior in a model of directed polymers in a random environment, this volume places particular emphasis on the localization phenomenon. The main question is: What does the path of a random walk look like if rewards and penalties are spatially randomly distributed? This model, which provides... more...
