[arXiv:1711.08266] 50 years Baksan Laboratory, Meeting locationBaksan, Russia, 22 Nov 2017 - 22 Nov 2017 20 pp. (2017) [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-01180]   With the identification of a diffuse flux of astrophysical ('cosmic') neutrinos in the TeV-PeV energy range, IceCube has opened a new window to the Universe. However, the corresponding cosmic landscape is still uncharted: so far, the observed flux does not show any clear association with known source classes.

Measurement of the fiducial differential Higgs cross-section with respect to pT using thediphoton decay channel atps = 8TeV with ATLAS 191 pp. (2018) [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-01172] = Dissertation, University of Hamburg, 2017   AbstractThis thesis presents a measurement of the fiducial differential cross-section with respect to pT of Higgs boson production, using the diphoton decay channel. Theanalysis uses 20:3 fb-1 of proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8TeV taken with the ATLAS detector in the year 2012.

Momentum is injected using nonperiodic boundary conditions and the calculations are carried out at a fixed lattice spacing $(a \simeq 0.09 fm)$ and with pion masses equal to its physical value, 240 MeV and 340 MeV.

Conformal Dimensions via Large Charge Expansion Physical review letters 120(6), 061603 (2018) [10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.061603]   We construct an efficient Monte Carlo algorithm that overcomes the severe signal-to-noise ratio problems and helps us to accurately compute the conformal dimensions of large-$Q$ fields at the Wilson-Fisher fixed point in the $O$(2) universality class. Using it, we verify a recent proposal that conformal dimensions of strongly coupled conformal field theories with a global $U$(1) charge can be obtained via a series expansion in the inverse charge 1/$Q$.

Extragalactic diffuse γ-rays from dark matter annihilation: revised prediction and full modelling uncertainties Journal of cosmology and astroparticle physics 2018(02), 005 - 005 (2018) [10.1088/1475-7516/2018/02/005]   Recent high-energy data from $Fermi$-LAT on the diffuse $\gamma$-ray background have been used to set among the best constraints on annihilating TeV cold dark matter candidates. In order to assess the robustness of these limits, we revisit and update the calculation of the isotropic extragalactic $\gamma$-ray intensity from dark matter annihilation.

This is based on the Rome method for computing momentum derivatives of quark propagators.

This new technique allows for improved meas-urements of electron and photon energies, particularly in situations where an electron radiatesa bremsstrahlung photon, or a photon converts to an electron-positron pair.

We show by high-resolution optical birefringence and synchrotron-based x-ray diffraction that confining a thermotropic discotic liquid crystal in cylindrical nanopores induces a quantized formation of annular layers consisting of concentric circular bent columns, unknown in the bulk state.

Our experimental setup at PETRA III, P05, had a length of about 5 m consisting of an illumination optics, an imaging lens and a detector [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-02-0810:43 [PUBDB-2018-01126] Journal Article Rau, C. Analytical registration of vertical image drifts in parallel beam tomographic data Optics letters 42(23), 4982-4985 (2017) [10.1364/OL.42.004982]   Reconstructing tomographic images of high resolution, as in x-ray microscopy or transmission electron microscopy, is often limited by the stability of the stages or sample drifts, which requires an image alignment prior to reconstruction. Feature-based image registration is routinely used to align images, but this technique relies on strong features in the sample or the application of gold tracer particles, for example.
