High-Energy Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Living in Extra Dimensions"

Presented by Argyris Nicolaidis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece

Wednesday, June 9, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In models unifying gravity and the other forces, gravity propagates, besides the usual four dimensions, into additional δ extra dimensions and gravity becomes strong at TeV energies. We look for signatures of extra dimensions and strong gravitational phenomena in
cosmic rays, attributing the cosmic ray to produced gravitons, escaping in the extra dimensions
LHC, with the production of microscopic black holes
unconventional neutrino oscillations, where a flavor neutrino mixes with a singlet neutrino living in the bulk
photon mixing with an axion living in extra dimensions, providing new explanations for the transparency of the universe to high energy photons and for the dispersion of time arrival of the MAGIC photons

in cosmic rays, LHC physics, high energy neutrinos,
and the astrophysics of high energy photons.
