In this paper we described how to perform a successful global embedding in type IIB string compactifications of the model of Cicoli:2014bfa () for the recently observed 3.5 keV line from galaxy clusters. The main feature of this model is the fact th…

An interesting result in particle astrophysics is the recent detection of an unexplained 3.5 keV line from galaxy clusters. A promising model, which …

We study the elastic response of planar black hole (BH) solutions in a simple class of holographic models with broken translational invariance. We co…

Motivated by surprises in recent experimental findings, we study transport in a model of a quantum Hall edge system with a gate-voltage controlled co…

In the conventional seesaw models of neutrino masses, leptogenesis occurs at a very high scale. Three approaches have been discussed in the literatur…

We discuss the discrimination of the 125 GeV spin-parity 0^+ Higgs-like boson observed at the LHC, decaying into two photons, H\to\gamma\gamma, again…

Recently it has been claimed that no extension of quantum theory can have improved predictive power, the statement following, according to the author…

We compute the transmission probability through rectangular potential barriers and p-n junctions in the presence of a magnetic and electric fields in…

Halos are biased tracers of the dark matter distribution. It is often assumed that the patches from which halos formed are locally biased with respec…

We investigate the Wightman function, the vacuum expectation values of the field square and the energy-momentum tensor for a scalar field with genera…

We present a three-loop model of neutrino mass in which both the weak scale and neutrino mass arise as radiative effects. In this approach, the scale…

Inclusive Higgs measurements at the LHC have limited resolution on the gluon fusion loops, being unable to distinguish the long-distance contribution…

The experimental rate of neutrinoless double beta decay can be saturated by the exchange of virtual sterile neutrinos, that mix with the ordinary neu…

We extend the resummation method of Anselmi & Pietroni (2012) to compute the total density power spectrum in models of quintessence characterized by …

Number counts of massive high-redshift clusters provide a window to study primordial non-Gaussianity. The current quality of data, however, forces th…

We present a minimal model that simultaneously accounts for neutrino masses and the origin of dark matter (DM) and where the electroweak phase transi…

We study models in which the inflaton is coupled to two otherwise decoupled sectors, and the effect of preheating and related processes on their ener…

Multi-megaton scale under ice and underwater detectors of atmospheric neutrinos with few GeV's energy threshold (PINGU, ORCA) open up new possibiliti…

There is increasing evidence that fairness and generosity are not exclusive human traits. Indeed, several experiments on chimpanzees, monkeys and oth…

We investigate the dynamics of the rate function and of local observables after a quench in models which exhibit phase transitions between a superflu…

We introduce a spin-1/2 model in three dimensions which is a generalization of the well-known Kitaev model on a honeycomb lattice. Following Kitaev, …
