 2019-03-2209:15 [PUBDB-2019-01665] Report/Journal Article Spiesberger, H. $b$-hadron production in the general-mass variable-flavor-number scheme and the LHC data [arXiv:1809.04297; DESY-18-154; MITP-18-085] Physical review / D 98(11), 114010 (2018) [10.1103/PhysRevD.98.114010]   We study inclusive $b$-hadron production in $pp$ collisions at the LHC at different center-of-mass energies and compare with experimental data from the LHCb and CMS collaborations. Our predictions for cross sections differential in the transverse momentum and (pseudo)rapidity agree with data within uncertainties due to renormalization scale variations [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-03-2008:43 [PUBDB-2019-01624] Journal Article Welsch, R. Probing photodissociation dynamics using ring polymer molecular dynamics The journal of chemical physics 150(11), 114105 (2019) [10.1063/1.5086218]   The performance of the ring polymer molecular dynamics (RPMD) approach to simulate typical photodissociation processes is assessed. The correct description of photodissociation requires the calculation of correlation functions or expectation values associated with non-equilibrium initial conditions, which was shown to be possible with RPMD very recently [J.

Improved constraints on the mixing and mass of $Z'$ bosons from resonant diboson searches at the LHC at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV and predictions for Run II [DESY-18-170; arXiv:1809.08933] Physical review / D 98(9), 095029 (2018) [10.1103/PhysRevD.98.095029]   New neutral vector bosons Z′ decaying to charged gauge boson pairs W$^+$W$^-$ are predicted in many scenarios of new physics, including models with an extended gauge sector such as E6, left-right symmetric ZLRS′ and the sequential standard model ZSSM′. For these benchmark models we calculate and present theoretical expectations for different values of the Z′ mass M2 and mixing parameter ξ.

Time-resolved x-ray/optical pump-probe simulations on $\mathrm{N_2}$ molecules Structural dynamics 6(2), 024101 (2019) [10.1063/1.5053995]   The dynamics of $N_2^{2+}$ dications after x-ray-induced Auger decay and their probing with a delayed infrared probe pulse are theoretically investigated based on a quantum-mechanical model including all relevant electronic states for which wave-packet calculations on ab-initio potential energy curves are performed. Our results demonstrate that the $N_2^{2+}$ yield modulated by the delay of the probe pulse contains dynamical information on the wave-packet evolution in the quasi-bound final electronic states [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-03-1910:07 [PUBDB-2019-01602] Dissertation / PhD Thesis Jones, R. M. Higher-Order-Mode-based Beam Phase and Beam Position Measurements in Superconducting Accelerating Cavities at the European XFEL 183 pp. (2019) [10.3204/PUBDB-2019-01602] = Dissertation, University of Manchester, 2017   Instrumentation of higher order modes (HOMs) excited in accelerating cavities for beam phase and position inference provides a noninvasive and economical beam diagnostic. The principles and techniques for this purpose are investigated for TESLA (TeV Energy Superconducting Linear Accelerator) cavities at the injector part of the newly built European XFEL and at FLASH, two free electron laser facilities based on the TESLA technology.I have designed and instrumented unconventional beam phase monitors based on monopole modes in TESLA cavities and demonstrated a routine resolution of 0.1° with a broadband setup [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-03-1811:32 [PUBDB-2019-01570] Report/Journal Article Riemann, T. Scalar 1-loop Feynman integrals as meromorphic functions in space-time dimension d [DESY-17-079; HCMUS-19-01; KW-18-004; arXiv:1812.10975] Physics letters / B 791, 257 - 264 (2019) [10.1016/j.physletb.2019.02.044]   The long-standing problem of representing the general massive one-loop Feynman integral as a meromorphic function of the space-time dimension d has been solved for the basis of scalar one- to four-point functions with indices one. In 2003 the solution of difference equations in the space-time dimension allowed to determine the necessary classes of special functions: self-energies need ordinary logarithms and Gauss hypergeometric functions $_{2}F_1$, vertices need additionally Kampé de Fériet-Appell functions $F_1$, and box integrals also Lauricella-Saran functions $F_S$.

Deconstructing complex assem-blies of paints horizontally across a picture and vertically through it provides insight into the detailed production process of the art work and on the painting techniques and styles of its maker.

Study of self-modulation of an electron beam in plasma 142 pp. (2019) [10.3204/PUBDB-2019-01556] = Dissertation, University of Hamburg, 2018   The acceleration of electron beams in plasma wakefields driven by charged particlebeams is among the most promising candidates for future TeV-scale compact electronaccelerators. Currently available high energy proton beams that could serve as driverbeams in a plasma wakefeld accelerator (PWFA) are much longer than what is requiredfor efficient excitation of high-amplitude wakefields and thus for generating the desiredhigh acceleration gradients.

Five-Loop Static Contribution to the Gravitational Interaction Potential of Two Point Masses [arXiv:1902.11180; DESY-19-029; DO-TH-19/01]   We compute the static contribution to the gravitational interaction potential of two point masses in the velocity-independent five-loop (and 5th post-Newtonian) approximation to the harmonic coordinates effective action in a direct calculation. The computation is performed using effective field methods based on Feynman diagrams in momentum-space in $d = 3 - 2\varepsilon$ space dimensions.

In combination with a conventional fixed-order event generator, HEJ 2 can be used to obtain greatly improved predictions for a number of phenomenologically important processes by adding all-order logarithmic corrections in $\hat{s}/p_\perp^2$.
