The search for flavour-changing neutral current effects in $B$-meson decays is a powerful probe of physics beyond the Standard Model. Deviations from SM behaviour are often quantified by extracting the preferred values of the Wilson coefficients of an operator product expansion. We use the FlavBit module of the GAMBIT package to perform a simultane...

We analyze the convergence properties of operator product expansions (OPE) for Lorentzian CFT four-point functions of scalar operators. We give a complete classification of Lorentzian four-point configurations. All configurations in each class have the same OPE convergence properties in s-, t- and u-channels. We give tables including the informatio...

We study how to compute the operator product expansion coefficients in the exact renormalization group formalism. After discussing possible strategies, we consider some examples explicitly, within the $\epsilon$-expansions, for the Wilson-Fisher fixed points of the real scalar theory in $d=4-\epsilon$ dimensions and the Lee-Yang model in $d=6-\epsi...

Belitsky, A.V. Korchemsky, G.P.

We study a special class of four-point correlation functions of infinitely heavy half-BPS operators in planar N=4 SYM which admit factorization into a product of two octagon form factors. We demonstrate that these functions satisfy a system of nonlinear integro-differential equations which are powerful enough to fully determine their dependence on ...

Axion models with generation-dependent Peccei-Quinn charges can lead to flavor-changing neutral currents, thus motivating QCD axion searches at precision flavor experiments. We rigorously derive limits on the most general effective flavor-violating couplings from current measurements and assess their discovery potential. For two-body decays we use ...

We derive a set of light-cone sum rules relating the hadronic form factors relevant for B → Kπℓ+ℓ− decays to the B-meson light-cone distribution amplitudes (LCDAs). We obtain the sum rule relations for all B → K π form factors of (axial)vector and (pseudo)tensor b → s currents with a P -wave K π system. Our results reduce to the known light-cone su...

In generic conformal field theories with $W_3$ symmetry, we identify a primary field $\sigma$ with rational Kac indices, which produces the full $\mathbb{Z}_3$ charged and neutral sectors by the fusion processes $\sigma \times \sigma$ and $\sigma \times \sigma^*$, respectively. In this sense, this field generalises the $\mathbb{Z}_3$ fundamental sp...

We present a calculation of the pion valence quark distribution extracted using the formalism of reduced Ioffe time pseudo-distributions or more commonly known as pseudo-PDFs. Our calculation is carried out on two different 2+1 flavor QCD ensembles using the isotropic-clover fermion action, with lattice dimensions $24^3\times 64$ and $32^3\times 96...

We introduce analytic functionals which act on the crossing equation for CFTs in arbitrary spacetime dimension. The functionals fully probe the constraints of crossing symmetry on the first sheet, and are in particular sensitive to the OPE, (double) lightcone and Regge limits. Compatibility with the crossing equation imposes constraints on the func...

We consider quark-hadron duality relations and QCD sum rules for correlators involving exotic tetraquark currents, here specializing to the case of quark-exchange processes. We point out the differences they exhibit with respect to the cases involving ordinary bilinear quark currents. Based on the observation that only diagrams possessing at least ...
