Mounting Evidence for the Violation of Lepton Flavor Universality / Crivellin, Andreas (Zurich U. ; PSI, Villigen ; CERN) ; Hoferichter, Martin (Bern U.)
The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics was finalized in its current form in the mid-1970s, and has been extensively tested and confirmed ever since, with the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 being the last missing piece. While no new particles have been directly discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN so far, precision observables sensitive to quantum effects of new particles have accumulated intriguing hints for physics beyond the SM.

Vacuum correlators at short distances from lattice QCD / Harris, Tim ; Cè, Marco ; Meyer, Harvey B. ; Toniato, Arianna ; Török, Csaba
We propose a method to help control cutoff effects in the short-distance contribution to integrated correlation functions, such as the hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP), using the corresponding screening correlators computed at finite temperature. The strategy is investigated with Wilson fermions at leading order, which reveals a logarithmically-enhanced lattice artifact in the short-distance contribution, whose coefficient is determined at this order.

Logarithmic accuracy of angular-ordered parton showers / Bewick, Gavin (Durham U., IPPP) ; Ferrario Ravasio, Silvia (Durham U., IPPP) ; Richardson, Peter (Durham U., IPPP ; CERN) ; Seymour, Michael H. (Manchester U.)
We study the logarithmic accuracy of angular-ordered parton showers by considering the singular limits of multiple emission matrix elements. This allows us to consider different choices for the evolution variable and propose a new choice which has both the correct logarithmic behaviour and improved performance away from the singular regions.

On the chiral anomaly and the Yang–Mills gradient flow / Lüscher, Martin (CERN ; Bern U. ; U. Bern, AEC)
There are currently two singularity-free universal expressions for the topological susceptibility in QCD, one based on the Yang-Mills gradient flow and the other on density-chain correlation functions. While the latter link the susceptibility to the anomalous chiral Ward identities, the gradient flow permits the emergence of the topological sectors in lattice QCD to be understood. [...]

Physics Beyond the Standard Model with BlackHawk v2.0 / Arbey, Alexandre (IP2I, Lyon ; CERN ; IUF, Paris) ; Auffinger, Jérémy (IP2I, Lyon)
We present the new version v2.0 of the public code BlackHawk designed to compute the Hawking radiation of black holes, with both primary and hadronized spectra. This new version aims at opening an avenue toward physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) in Hawking radiation. [...]

Primordial black holes from Gauss-Bonnet-corrected single field inflation / Kawai, Shinsuke (Sungkyunkwan U.) ; Kim, Jinsu (CERN)
Primordial blackholes formed in the early Universe via gravitational collapse of over-dense regions may contribute a significant amount to the present dark matter relic density. Inflation provides a natural framework for the production mechanism of primordial blackholes. [...]

First-Generation New Physics in Simplified Models: From Low-Energy Parity Violation to the LHC / Crivellin, Andreas (Zurich U. ; PSI, Villigen ; CERN) ; Hoferichter, Martin (Bern U. ; U. Bern, AEC) ; Kirk, Matthew (Rome U. ; INFN, Rome) ; Manzari, Claudio Andrea (Zurich U. ; PSI, Villigen) ; Schnell, Luc (Paris, LPTHE ; Zurich, ETH ; Ec. Polytech., Palaiseau (main))
New-physics (NP) constraints on first-generation quark-lepton interactions are particularly interesting given the large number of complementary processes and observables that have been measured. Recently, first hints for such NP effects have been observed as an apparent deficit in first-row CKM unitarity, known as the Cabibbo angle anomaly, and the CMS excess in $q\bar q\to e^+e^-$. [...]

Next-to-leading power two-loop soft functions for the Drell-Yan process at threshold / Broggio, Alessandro (Milan Bicocca U. ; INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Jaskiewicz, Sebastian (Durham U., IPPP) ; Vernazza, Leonardo (CERN ; Turin U. ; INFN, Turin)
We calculate the generalized soft functions at $\mathcal{O}(\alpha_s^2)$ at next-to-leading power accuracy for the Drell-Yan process at threshold. The operator definitions of these objects contain explicit insertions of soft gauge and matter fields, giving rise to a dependence on additional convolution variables with respect to the leading power result.

The role of colour flows in matrix element computations and Monte Carlo simulations / Frixione, Stefano (INFN, Genoa ; CERN) ; Webber, Bryan R. (Cambridge U.)
We discuss how colour flows can be used to simplify the computation of matrix elements, and in the context of parton shower Monte Carlos with accuracy beyond leading-colour. We show that, by systematically employing them, the results for tree-level matrix elements and their soft limits can be given in a closed form that does not require any colour algebra. [...]
