Abstract

The STFC research programme of the Theoretical High Energy Physics Group at
Cambridge University is focused on the fundamental problems of collider
phenomenology, quantum field theory, string theory and gravity, and analysing a
class of strongly interacting particles called hadrons.

In this research, we
shall perform calculations to understand the fundamentals underlying
reality and our understanding of the universe and matter within it.
Much of this effort supports particle physics experiments at CERN and
elsewhere, as well as astrophysical and cosmological observations of the
universe.

Technical, difficult and detailed calculations deep in the quantum theory are
required in order to interpret some of the experimental data and to learn
everything we can from them. The structure of the proton (the particles
collided at the Large Hadron Collider) will be understood better in order to get
robust and reliable predictions on the collisions. We are analysing
and interpreting Large Hadron Collider data from CERN to do
various things: looking for signs of new particles or forces, developing
search and measurement strategies for them, or making high precision
predictions of various theories. The Standard Model is the current model of
particle physics that is well accepted, verified and measured. Most of its
predictions agree well with collider data. However, it leaves many questions
unanswered: why do the fundamental particles have the particular pattern they
do in their masses? We shall be developing mathematical models, based on
current data, to try to explain some such features, and provide experimental
tests at the same time. We are also busy supporting the science case for future
colliders, investigating which questions they could answer well.

How gravity behaves at small distance scales is badly understood
theoretically, although string theory may be an interesting framework for
understanding it.
We will be developing and investigating theories of quantum
gravity mathematically in order to push the understanding forward.
Black
holes provide a particular focus for the calculations: these are objects
around which gravity is very strong, and we will learn much from their
theoretical study. Various
calculations in new developments of string theory are important for this, and
for the development of how to calculate particle scattering in general.
String theories will be constructed to see how close they come to the universe
we see. Also, models of inflation (a time in the early universe when the
universe underwent extremely rapid expansion) will be investigated, developed
and compared with observations.

Some particles, such as hadrons, are strongly bound states of smaller
ones. For these, sophisticated computer programs are built which break
space and time up into a grid of points, and the quantum
fluctuations of the sub-nuclear interactions are simulated using random
numbers on this lattice. Analytic calculations must be done to match the
numbers obtained on the computer to experimental data. We shall develop
these calculations, and perform new ones so that data can be used to
extract the level to which various quarks (for example, the up quark and
the b-quark) mix. This helps provide an accurate description of an
unexplained phenomenon: how the funny pattern of quark mixing comes
about. These calculations also help the extraction of the difference
between matter and anti-matter from experimental data. We can predict
much about which strongly bound states may exist and their properties,
and studies of the more exotic and puzzling varieties seen in experiment
will be an important avenue of work.

Planned Impact

The research proposal is aimed at the understanding of matter, forces, space and
time. Much of this effort supports major research capabilities that are UK
interests such as those at CERN. It also feeds into collaborative research
there (and at other facilities/experiments).
We cannot predict when fundamental research will translate into
new technology, however, history implies that fundamental discoveries eventually
lead to spin-offs or direct applications. One example in collider
physics (such as is done at the LHC) is proton cancer therapy. In any case,
the science that we do has an immediate impact on the integration of science
into culture. Our field inspires and attracts people, and our investigators
have collective expertise and skill as public communicators. This already
benefits those who are stimulated by acquiring new knowledge about science.
Our blogs also influence thinking about science and society (for example in
terms of evidence-based policy). We are motivators for young people to follow
a career in science.
Part of our work is to give train students in creative and analytic thinking,
skills that are directly relevant for the UK economy for those that leave
academia and go into industry (often scientific industry) or financial
services.

We will communicate the results of our research to the general public (for
example in music festivals and other cultural festivals) and to
school children. Our goal is to both educate and to inspire, to explain the
wonder of
the natural world, the excitement of being involved in cutting edge research
and the joy of understanding something that no one else on the planet
knows. Members of the group have media connections through radio, television,
print and the internet and we will continue to develop these.

Title A Nu Supersymmetric Anomaly-free Atlas: anomaly-free, flavour-dependent U(1) charge assignments for the Minimally Supersymmetric Standard Model plus three Standard Model-singlet superfields 
Description We present lists of anomaly-free charge assignments up to a maximum magnitude charge Qmax=10 for the chiral fermionic content of the MSSM plus 3 right-handed neutrinos. Due to the large number of solutions, we compress the list into the file MSSMnuRcharges_Qmax10.gz. Please note that the unzipped file is approximately 130GB in size. We additionally include a smaller file, MSSMnuRcharges_Qmax4, containing the subset of anomaly-free charge assignments up to a maximum magnitude charge Qmax=4. The files searchU1MSSM.cpp and searchU1MSSM.h contain C++ files (in the 2014 standard) to produce the solutions. runsearch.sh is a bash script that compiles the programs and then runs it for a sample set of inputs. We provide Mathematica notebooks Analytic_solution_generator.nb and Analytic_Checks.nb which respectively provide the parametrisation of the analytic solution and checks thereof. The files beginning 'filter' contain example programs that read in each line in the solution list, apply a filter and print only the solutions satisfying the conditions of that filter. runfilter.sh is a bash script that compiles the filters and then runs a single filter as an example. These data and programs are based on this paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2107.07926.

Title Determination of the theory uncertainties from missing higher orders on NNLO parton distributions with percent accuracy 
Description We include uncertainties due to missing higher order corrections to QCD computations (MHOU) used in the determination of parton distributions (PDFs) in the recent NNPDF4.0 set of PDFs. We use our previously published methodology, based on the treatment of MHOUs and their full correlations through a theory covariance matrix determined by scale variation, now fully incorporated in the new NNPDF theory pipeline. We assess the impact of the inclusion of MHOUs on the NNPDF4.0 central values and uncertainties, and specifically show that they lead to improved consistency of the PDF determination with an ensuing moderate reduction of PDF uncertainties at NNLO.

Title SIMUnet: an open-source tool for simultaneous global fits of EFT Wilson coefficients and PDFs 
Description We present the open-source SIMUnet code, designed to fit Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) Wilson coefficient alongside Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) of the proton. SIMUnet can perform SMEFT global fits, as well as simultaneous fits of the PDFs and of an arbitrarily large number of SMEFT degrees of freedom, by including both PDF-dependent and PDF-independent observables. SIMUnet can also be used to determine whether the effects of any New Physics models can be fitted away in a global fit of PDFs. SIMUnet is built upon the open-source NNPDF code and is released together with documentation, and tutorials. To illustrate the functionalities of the new tool, we present a new global analysis of the SMEFT Wilson coefficients accounting for their interplay with the PDFs. We increment our previous analysis of the LHC Run II top quark data with both (i) the Higgs production and decay rates data from the LHC, and (ii) the precision electroweak and diboson measurements from LEP and the LHC.

Results and Impact The Anillo for Holography and its applications to High Energy Physics, Quantum Gravity and Condensed Matter Systems seeks to deepen our understanding of holographic dualities and their applications to different physical systems. Our project also aims to foster and strengthen collaborations among the high energy and condensed matter theory communities, by promoting the training of young researchers in the areas of quantum field theory, quantum gravity and string theory.

This project aims to expand our knowledge of holographic dualities and their use as a tool to describe strongly correlated systems, and our understanding of particle physics and quantum gravity. We have assembled a multifaceted team of researchers from the different areas of expertise relevant to the topics we want to address, namely, in quantum field theory, quantum gravity/string theory, and condensed matter physics.
During the past few decades, Chile has experienced a substantial growth in the number of young scientists working in high-energy physics. With this project, we also want to help our students and postdocs to enhance their engagement with the international community by promoting extended visits abroad, and by participating in schools, workshops, and conferences.

Finally, outreach is also one of our main objectives. Throughout the length of our project, we will continue organizing activities that help disseminate our results in non-academic activities that help bring science closer to our communities.

Results and Impact Organized annually since 1986, The Hampton University Graduate Studies (HUGS) Summer Program at Jefferson Lab is an internationally renowned summer program in Nuclear Physics designed to train the nuclear workforce's next generation of researchers.

HUGS is designed for second and third year experimental or theoretical Nuclear and Particle physics graduate students who have finished their coursework. Students who are well into a research project are encouraged to apply as well. The program includes lectures and special topic seminars by internationally renowned physicists, and is simultaneously intensive, friendly, and casual. Students are selected on a competitive basis from each year's pool of applicants, and the HUGS program provides support to a large fraction of the accepted participants by covering their local expenses, and in exceptional cases their domestic travel expenses. The students will be housed on site at Jefferson Lab, where they will have many opportunities to interact with the lecturers, as well as Jefferson Lab staff, graduate students and visitors; they will receive excellent insight into contemporary nuclear and hadronic physics, and the right set of tools to contribute to the advance of the field in the upcoming years.

Results and Impact In occasion of a two-week research visit at the Hodge Institute in Edinburgh, hosted by Professor Tudor Dimofte and Professor David Jordan, I was invited to give a talk at the STAMP weekly seminar jointly organised by the Higgs Centre and the Hodge Institute. The talk I gave was mostly aiming at explaining to an audience consisting of PhD students and two postdocs of the usefulness of describing gauge theories by means of higher-categorical structures. I was very pleased of the many questions I received throughout my exposition, clearly showing that my presentation opened their views to new perspectives.

Results and Impact I was invited by Professor Gregory Moore to give a talk at his home institution in regard to the first paper I released in May 2023, consisting the study of higher-categorical structures arising from dimensional reduction of maximally supersymmetric superconformal field theories. Professor Moore is an Associate Member of the Simons Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries, and it was therefore particularly significant for me to receive such an invitation. Furthermore, the audience also comprised other world-leading experts, specifically Professor Nathan Seiberg, both of whom proved to be actively engaged throughout the entire presentation, proving interest in my work and future objectives.

Results and Impact I was invited to give a talk embracing most of my findings in the past year, mostly presenting the importance of using algebraic categorical theory in relation to functorial field theory and quiver gauge theories with decreasing amount of supersymmetry. The audience was made up of members of the Simons Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries. Albeit what I explained might have gone beyond the expertise of the individual attendees, I believe I was able to convey the relevance of my work in the application of pure mathematics tools to address open questions in Quantum Field Theory.
