Attributing the latter to exotic matter ignores the fact that exotic<br>matter was introduced for a completely different reason and is usually present in only small quantities.</p> Peter K.F.

Effective Field Theory and ultraviolet complete models are discussed. LHC interpretations<br>show only the scalar and Majorana dark-matter scenarios; we propose to include interpretation for vector<br>dark matter in the EFT and UV completions theoretical framework. In addition, our studies suggest an<br>extension of the LHC dark matter interpretations to the sub-GeV regime.</p> Mohamed Zaazoua, Loan Truong, Kétévi Adikle Assamagan, Farida Fassi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/270 Mon, 18 Apr 2022 21:16:43 +0000 A Recipe for Conformal Blocks http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/293 <p>We describe a prescription for constructing conformal blocks in conformal field theories in any space-time dimension with arbitrary quantum numbers. Our procedure reduces the calculation of conformal blocks to constructing certain group theoretic structures that depend on the quantum numbers of primary operators. These structures project into irreducible Lorentz representations. Once the Lorentz quantum numbers are accounted for there are no further calculations left to do. We compute a multivariable generalization of the Exton function. This generalized Exton function, together with the group theoretic structures, can be used to construct conformal blocks for four-point as well as higher-point correlation functions.</p> Witold Skiba, Jean-Francois Fortin ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/293 Sun, 12 Jun 2022 05:09:04 +0000
