                     ABC of LHC

• Tonnel length - 27 kilometers

• Depth below ground - between 50 and 175 meters

•   p-p beams, 2808 bunches, 1.15×1011 particles/bunch

• v = 0.99999998 c

• Energy        s  14 TeV        Etotal  200 Etotal
                                    LHC          Tevatron

• Nominal luminosity <L> ~ 1034 cм-2 сек -1
  Energy of a proton in the beam = 7 TeV = 10-6 J
   It is about kinetic energy of a flying mosquito:

  Question: why not to use mosquitos in particle physics?

     Answer: because NAvogadro = 6.0221023 (mol)-1

Energy of a mosquito is distributed among ~ 1022 nucleons.
On the other hand, total energy stored in each beam is
2808 bunches  1011 protons/bunch  7 TeV/proton = 360 MJ
It is explosive energy of ~ 100 kg TNT or kinetic energy
of “Admiral Kuznetsov” cruiser traveling at 8 knots.
                       Particle acceleration
 Charged particles influenced by applied electric and magnetic fields
  according to the Lorentz force: F = q (E + v  B) = dp/dt
   E field → energy gain, B field → curvature
 CERN has a wide variety of accelerators, some dating back to 1950s
 LHC machine re-uses the tunnel excavated for previous accelerator (LEP)
  Others (PS/SPS) used to accelerate protons before injection into the LHC

                                                                Neutrino beam,
                                                                low energy beams
                                                                and p fixed-target
                                                                beams all running
                                                                in parallel with LHC
                       The LHC
From an article in the CERN Courier   Original idea

• Dipole magnets used to deflect the particles
  Radius  [m] = 3.33 p [GeV] / B [T]
• For the LHC, the machine has to fit in the
  existing 27 km tunnel, about 2/3 of which is
  used for active dipole field →  ~ 2800 m
  So to reach p = 7 TeV requires B = 8.3 T
• Beams focused using quadrupole magnets
  By alternating Focusing and Defocusing                    The LHC has 1232 dipoles
  quadrupoles, can focus in both x and y views                      392 quadrupoles

                                N-pole        S-pole

                       Mass hierarchies (from hep-ph/0603118). The
                      heaviest fermion of a given type has unit mass.

  Masses come out of interactions in the Standard Model
  and these interactions conserve (or do not conserve…)
                    particular symmetries.
      Invariance properties with respect to transformations
             have been always important in physics
 1. translations in    R            1. momentum
 2. rotations in   R                2. angular momentum

 3. time translations               3. energy

       invariance                       conservation

            Gauge symmetry – invariance with
              respect to transformations in
                    «internal» space

In the SM this space has structure of U(1) × SU(2) × SU(3)
      U(1) × SU(2) × SU(3)

                                                And gravity is



  Quarks are unique probes of the whole
«internal space», hence flavor physics has
  to deal with weak, electromagnetic and
       strong interactions altogether
  Besides continuous symmetries of prime importance in
  high energy physics are discrete transformations

  • С – charge conjugation
  • P – space inversion
  • Т – time reflection

Experimental fact: strong and electromagnetic interactions
in the SM are C, P, T, CP, CT, PT and CPT invariant.
Maximal symmetry is not so interesting…

  Beauty         slightly broken symmetry
The breaking should not be too strong, however…
СРТ theorem:
Antiparticles and their interactions are indistinguishable from
particles moving along the same world-lines but in opposite
directions in 3+1 dimensional space-time.

In particular, the mass of any particle is strictly equal to the mass of its
antiparticle (experimentally checked in 1 part to 1018 in K-meson studies).

 The SM strictly conserves CPT. There are no however any
 theoretical reason why C, P and T should conserve

   Often in physics if something can happen – it does.
            Weak interactions violate P-parity

combined CP-parity   decays.
In the world of elementary particles:
          (CPLEAR 1999)

                             neutral kaon
                         decay time distribution
                           anti-neutral kaon
                         decay time distribution

                            CP violation
Later CP-violation has been beautifully measured by experiments
               BaBar and BELLE at the B factories

   These are machines (in the US and Japan) running on the (4S)
   resonance: e+e-  (4S)  B0B0 or B+B-
 The CP asymmetry A(t) = G(B0  J/y KS) - G(B0  J/y KS)
                         G(B0  J/y KS) + G(B0  J/y KS)
   A(t) = - sin2b sin Dm t
   in the Standard Model
 BABAR+BELLE measure
  sin2b = 0.674 ± 0.026
 This can be compared with
  the indirect measurement
  from other constraints on the
  Unitarity Triangle

                             CP-violation in the SM

Idea: nontrivial superposition of non-interacting particles
forms flavor eigenstate that interacts weakly

In other words: it is impossible to diagonalize simultaneously
the mass term and charged currents interaction term:

   It is easy to show that arbitrary complex unitary N×N
   matrix can be parameterized by N(N-1)/2 generalized
   Euler angles and (N-1)(N-2)/2 complex phases.

  For N<3 the matrix can always be rotated to an equivalent
  one which is real. But not for N=3.

In other words, there exist 3×3 unitary matrices which cannot
 be made real whatever phases quark fields are chosen to have.

 Big Bang (~ 14 billion years ago) → matter and antimatter equally
  produced; followed by annihilation → nbaryon/ng ~ 10-10
  Why didn‟t all the matter annihilate (luckily for us)?
 No evidence found for an “antimatter world” elsewhere in the Universe
 One of the requirements to produce an asymmetric final state (our
  world) from a symmetric matter/antimatter initial state (the Big Bang)
  is that CP symmetry must violated [Sakharov, 1967]
 CP is violated in the Standard Model, through the weak mixing of quarks
  For CP violation to occur there must be at least 3 generations of quarks
  So problem of baryogenesis may be connected to why three
  generations exist, even though all normal matter is made up from the
  first (u, d, e, e)
 However, the CP violation in the SM is not sufficient for baryogenesis
  Other sources of CP violation expected → good field to search for new
  physics                                                               24
CKM matrix can be parameterized by four parameters in many
different ways. The so called «Wolfenstein parametrization» is
based on expansion in powers of

  Vus + O( )  0.2272  0.0010
  It is convenient to discuss the properties of CKM matrix
  in parametrization-invariant terms. Such invariant are
  absolute values of the matrix elements and «angles»
  between them

If any of these angles is different from zero, it means that
there is a complex phase in CKM matrix which cannot be
rotated away. This violates CP.

      Interpret the difference as a signal of NP
   The sensitivity of standard approach is limited due to:

   - Geometry of UT (UT is almost rectangular)
Comparison of precisely measured b with  is not meaningful due to error
propagation: 3° window in b corresponds to (245)° window in 
Precision comparison of the angle  and side Rt is very meaningful !!!

However in many NP scenarios, in particular with MFV, short-distance
contributions are cancelled out in the ratio of DMd/DMs.
So the length of the Rt side may happen to be not sensitive to NP

Precision measurement of  will
effectively constrain Rt and thus
calibrate the lattice calculation
of the parameter

               Physics of loops

Loops can be also explored in rare decays. But before
discussing LHCb prospects let us take more general
attitude and ask ourselves: why is it important to study
loop processes in general?
Main reason is the following: loop physics is intimately related
to overall integrity and the deepest features of quantum theory
 (Heisenberg uncertainty principle, unitarity, causality etc).

 Example: optic theorem & all that

 i  f               f Si         SS +  1      S 1 + iT

       1  n n                      2 Im T  T  T     +

 everything!                                      by means of dispersion
                               n                    relations (causality)

 At order e2                                  Each green arrow is nontrivial.
                                                 Deep relations between
                              n                     trees and loops.
  Loop processes contain loop momentum integrals
  and hence can indirectly probe physics at large mass scale
 Example: quantum electrodynamics at small distances or
 in strong fields is sensitive to the electron mass in loops
a) the potential between static sources deviates from Coloumb
law at small distances:
                                         2      1 
           +                   V (r )  1 +  log       
                                       r  3     cme r 
 b) the energy stored by the static magnetic field is different
 from its classical value: H 2 / 2
                                       H 2   2H 2 
      classic +                         1 -       
                                        2  45 me4 
Analogously rare B-decays mediated by loop processes
are sensitive to heavy particles masses and couplings:
logarithmically for radiative penguins and power-like for
box diagrams. However the concrete form of functional
dependence is much more complicated than in considered
simple examples.
  Loop processes contain sums over all relevant degrees
  of freedom (Lorentz structure of the interaction, symmetries
  related to New particles etc…).

  Example: neutral kaon oscillations
 Neutral K-mesons made of d and anti-s quarks oscillate in
 vacuum with the frequency ~ 1010 sec-1 because of the
 following loop process, mediated by “box” diagram:

                s           u, c, t          d
             K0     W+                  W−       K0
                d           u, c, t          s
                      Viq             V*ib

Notice that it is the same diagram which describes oscillations
of B-mesons if we replace s-quark by b-quark!
 Suppose we know nothing about the existence of heavy
 c- and t-quarks.
Then naïve estimate of the box diagram with one internal
u-quark gives for the level splitting Dm12 (which is nothing
but the oscillation frequency)
            G2 ~ 2     ~ GF  M W ~ 10 -6 GeV - 2
                          2     2

                f K mK
while experimental result is G2 ~ 10 -13 GeV -2 It seems we
have a problem…
 Solution: GIM - S.Glashow, J.Iliopoulos, L.Maiani, 1970
 Box diagram with internal c-quark cancels the one with
 u-quark (up to the quarks mass difference):
             G2 ~       (mc - mu ) 2 sin 2  cos 2 
                  16 2
 Comparison of calculated G2 with experimentally measured
  Dm12 leads to correct prediction for mc ~ 1 GeV
This is how it actually happened: GIM mechanism was suggested in 1970,
while direct experimental discovery of c-quark took place only in 1974!
 Historical remark #1. Perhaps even more spectacular is that the famous
 Kobayashi-Maskawa paper where the quarks of third generation (b- and
 t-quarks) and current paradigm of CP-violation were introduced was
 also published a few months before c-quark discovery (and about four
 years before b-quark discovery).
 Historical remark #2. Original idea about possible fourth quark (c-quark)
 Was suggested by M.Gell-Mann in his original ’1964 paper devoted to the
 quark model with three light quarks (u-, d-, and s- quarks) on aesthetic
 grounds of symmetry between quarks and leptons.
 Historical remark #3. The analogous mixing matrix in lepton sector was
 proposed by Z.Maki, M.Nakagawa and S.Sakata in 1962, i.e. well before

  Notice that full Hamiltonian is μ-independent! (at each order in αs)

In Wilson’s operator product expansion the quantities                    –
coefficient functions – take into account physics at large
scales p > μ, while local operators        care about
low energy (p < μ) physics.
New Physics can manifest itself both via corrections to SM
coefficient functions (the so called «minimal flavor violation»
scenario) and via new operators.
                    How does it work in practice?

  Simple example – Fermi interaction

                                           In the SM

Thus the photons are dominantly right-handed in the decays
of B-mesons and left-handed in the decays of anti-B mesons

Real life is a little bit more complicated, npQCD corrections
also contribute to “wrong” helicity amplitude… But not much.
 Consider angular momentum book-keeping
 at the quark level. In s-quark rest frame (pb = pγ) we have:

                           s 
      b                    or
                           s 
But coupling between bL and bR in this frame (and hence the ratio
γL / γR ) is proportional to small parameter mb    ms
                                            pb       mb
                     Bs → φ γ
Due to the mixing between Bs and anti-Bs two states
with the masses m1 , m2 and widths Γ1 , Γ2 are formed.
The time-dependent decay width with CP-eigenstate and
a photon at the final state is given by

where ΔΓq = | Γ1 - Γ2 | and Δmq = | m1 - m2 | for q =s or d


if neither     nor       is small (in SM CKM angle     )
– we have a chance to find from the time-dependent rate.

       This is exactly the case of Bs mesons.

                   Measuring the photon polarization in
                           B  h1h2h3  decays

The measurement of the photon helicity requires the knowledge of the spin
direction of the s-quark emitted from the penguin loop. Use the correlation
between s-spin and angular momentum of the hadronic system (needs partial-
wave analysis !!!)

Sensitivity to photon helicity measurement is being studied
                  B  [  KK ]K
The b-quark from initial B meson decays into a photon and s-quark.
The latter forms the hadron system Y (together with the spectator),
which is characterized by total angular momentum J and its
projection. Strong dynamics causes consequent decay of Y into a
pseudoscalar meson (where the spectator quark goes) and a vector
or tensor (where the s-quark goes).

 If only s-wave contributes, Clebsch-Gordan coefficients
 are trivial (=1) and there is no sensitivity to λ.

 Introducing helicity factor as
 dΓ/dΦ can be rewritten as

If J = 1 contributions dominate:
  B  K* (will be presented by
            William Reece)

In SM this bs penguin decay contains
right-handed calculable contribution
but this could be added to by NP resulting
in modified angular distributions

                   B → K* μμ

A very important property is   ..and position of its zero,
forward-backward asymmetry..   which is robust in SM:

  Very smal BR in SM

 This decay could be strongly enhanced
 in some SUSY models. Example: CMSSM

Clean experimental signature of NP is unlikely at currently operating experiments

                   From now to 2014
A lot of opportunities (LHCb will start data taking this summer)
Important measurements to search for NP and test SM in CP violation
 : if non-zero  NP in boxes < 2010
 b vs Rb and  vs Rt (Input from theory !)
 b(NP) and (NP): if non-zero  NP in penguins
           in Rare decays
 BR(Bs  ) down to SM prediction < 2010
 Photon helicity in exclusive bs decays
 FBA & transversity amplitudes in exclusive bsll decays     < 2010

                    After 2014
ATLAS and CMS might or might not discovered New Particles. At the same time
LHCb might or might not see NP phenomena beyond SM.
In either case it is important to go on with B physics at SFF & Upgraded LHCb

                    high pT                    B’s

Need much improved precision because any measurement
           in b-system constrains NP models
