We report a new measurement of the e+e−→ ϒ(nS)π+π− (n = 1, 2, 3) cross sections at energies from 10.52 to 11.02 GeV using data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e− collider. We observe a new structure in the energy dependence of the cross sections; if described by a Breit-Wigner function its mass and width are found ...

We show that consistent interactions of a spin-2 and a higher-spin Majorana fermion gauge fields in 30 fiat space lead uniquely to Aragone-Deser hypergravity or its generalization. Our analysis employs the ERST-cohomological techniques, and works in the metric-like formulation under the assumptions of locality, parity and Poincaré invariance. Local...

We construct the theory of a chiral boson with anisotropic scaling, characterized by a dynamical exponent z that takes positive odd integer values. The action reduces to that of Floreanini and Jackiw in the isotropic case (z = 1). The standard free boson with Lifshitz scaling is recovered when both chiralities are nonlocally combined. Its canonical...

We test exact marginality of the deformation describing the blow-up of a zero- size D(−1) brane bound to a background of D3-branes by analyzing the equations of motion of superstring field theory to third order in the size. In the process we review the derivation of the instanton profile from string theory, extending it to include α′-corrections.

We have constructed a two dimensional theory dual to 3D asymptotically flat Supergravity in presence of two supercharges with(out) internal R-symmetry. The duals in both the cases are identified with chiral Wess-Zumino-Witten models. Further gauging the theories, we show that the dual of the one without R-symmetry is invariant under the well known ...

In a recent paper, Kiritsis and Li presented a holographic model to study the competition between different orders at finite doping in holographic superconductors. In the present work, we introduce fermions into such model and study the fermionic spectral functions in the normal phase at zero and finite temperatures. Combining analytic and numerica...

We study a class of defect quantum field theories where the quantum field theory in the 3+1-dimensional bulk is a free photon and charged matter and the interactions of the photons with the charges occur entirely on a 2+1-dimensional defect. We observe that at the fully quantum level, the effective action of such a theory is still a defect field th...
