 2018-08-0817:48 [PUBDB-2018-02862] Preprint/Report et al Measurement of the branching fraction of $B → D ^{(*)} π ℓ ν$ at Belle using hadronic tagging in fully reconstructed events [Belle preprint 2018-03; KEK Preprint 2017-67; arXiv:1803.06444]   We report a measurement of the branching fraction of the decay $B \rightarrow D^{(*)}\pi \ell\nu$. The analysis uses 772$\times 10^6$ $B\bar{B}$ pairs produced in $e^+e^-\rightarrow \Upsilon(4S)$ data recorded by the Belle experiment at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider.

The results are based on the $121.4\,$fb$^{-1}$ data sample collected by the Belle experiment at the asymmetric energy KEKB collider.

The analysis is based on the full data sample collected at and close to $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider corresponding to the integrated luminosity of 711 fb$^{-1}$.

The study is based on a data sample, containing $772 × 10^6 B\bar{B}$ pairs, that was collected at the $Υ(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+ e^−$ collider [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-07-1309:12 [PUBDB-2018-02595] Preprint/Report Schaefer, S. Testing the event-chain algorithm in asymptotically free models [DESY-18-090; arXiv:1806.11460] We apply the event-chain algorithm proposed by Bernard, Krauth and Wilson in 2009 to toy models of lattice QCD. We give a formal prove of stability of the algorithm. [...] 2018-07-1213:51 [PUBDB-2018-02585] Preprint/Report et al Search for supersymmetry in events with a $\tau$ lepton pair and missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV [CMS-SUS-17-003; CERN-EP-2018-149; arXiv:1807.02048]   A search for the electroweak production of supersymmetric particles in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV is presented in final states with a $\tau$ lepton pair. Both hadronic and leptonic decay modes are considered for the $\tau$ leptons. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2018-07-0610:20 [PUBDB-2018-02538] Preprint/Report Manashov, A. N. On the separation of variables for the modular XXZ magnet and the lattice Sinh-Gordon models [DESY-18-088; arXiv:1806.04487]   We construct the generalised Eigenfunctions of the entries of the monodromy matrix of the $N$-site modular XXZ magnet and show, in each case, that these form a complete orthogonal system in $L^2(\mathbb{R}^N)$. In particular, we develop a new and simple technique, allowing one to prove the completeness of such systems.

Using the latest RHIC and LHC data on the inclusive soft hadron production in $pp$ and $AA$ collisions at small transverse momenta, we determine the parameters of the initial TMD gluon density, derived in the framework of quark-gluon string model at the low scale $\mu_0 \sim 1 - 2$ GeV and refine its large-$x$ behaviour using the LHC data on the $t \bar t$ production at $\sqrt s = 13$ TeV.

The data sample, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{-1}$, was collected by the CMS detector at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 8 TeV.

Associated production of a leptoquark and a $\tau$ lepton is considered, leading to a final state with a bottom quark and two $\tau$ leptons. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
