    • Are weak vector bosons composite?

      S N Biswas S Rai Choudhury K Datta Ashok Goyal

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Recentcern$$p\bar p$$ collider data on anomalousZ° events suggest, among other possibilities, a composite structure for the weak intermediate vector bosons. We present a short review of these developments and examine how far the scenario for weak interactions with such composite models of the weak vector bosons presents a viable alternative to the standard electroweak theory. In particular, we show how the scale of the dynamics underlying the composite structure is set by the magnitude of the weak mixing angle sin2θw and point out the possibility of accommodating the anomalous$$Z^ \circ - l\tilde l\gamma $$ decay events presently observed within this picture.

    • Self-energy effect in a relativistic bound state problem

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A modification of the Wick-Cutkosky equation for the relativistic bound state of two scalar particles interacting through the exchange of a massless scalar field within the ladder approximation has been considered by incorporating the self-energy diagrams in the integral kernel. An exact analytical solution of the equation is obtained at vanishing total energy and it is shown that the self-energy effects generally diminish the eigenvalues in agreement with the findings of Liet al, who, however solved the equation numerically for the case of massive scalar exchange. An additional feature of the modified equation is that it preserves the 0(5) symmetry at zero total energy as was first noted by Cutkosky for the scalar bound state equation without self-energy effects.

    • Phase transition in gauge theories

      S N Biswas

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this short review we present the consequences of the spontaneously broken gauge theories will lead to when describing matter at high temperature and density. It appears various phase transitions should occur leading to the restoration of symmetry at high temperature of the originally broken one. Symmetry behaviour in external magnetic fields and in the early universe has been briefly mentioned.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The purpose of the paper is to construct a supersymmetric Lagrangian within the framework of classical mechanics which would be regarded as a candidate for passage to supersymmetric quantum mechanics.

    • Aq deformation of Gell-Mann-Okubo mass formula

      B Bagchi S N Biswas

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We explore the possibility of deforming Gell-Mann-Okubo (GMO) mass formula within the framework of a quantized enveloping algebra. A small value of the deformation parameter is found to provide a good fit to the observed mass spectra of theπ, K andη mesons.

    • Truncated harmonic oscillator and parasupersymmetric quantum mechanics

      B Bagchi S N Biswas Avinash Khare P K Roy

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We discuss in detail the parasupersymmetric quantum mechanics of arbitrary order where the parasupersymmetry is between the normal bosons and those corresponding to the truncated harmonic oscillator. We show that even though the parasusy algebra is different from that of the usual parasusy quantum mechanics, still the consequences of the two are identical. We further show that the parasupersymmetric quantum mechanics of arbitrary orderp can also be rewritten in terms ofp supercharges (i.e. all of which obeyQi2=0). However, the Hamiltonian cannot be expressed in a simple form in terms of thep supercharges except in a special case. A model of conformal parasupersymmetry is also discussed and it is shown that in this case, thep supercharges, thep conformal supercharges along with HamiltonianH, conformal generatorK and dilatation generatorD form a closed algebra.
