Top quark forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron: the electroweak contribution
Davide Pagani
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: Recent CDF and D0 measurements of the top quark forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron present deviations between 1-sigma and 2-sigma from QCD predictions and a cut M_inv > 450 GeV on the events increases this deviation to 3.4 sigma in the CDF measurement. The inclusion of electroweak contributions of order alpha^2 and order alpha alphas^2 enlarges the theoretical prediction from QCD by a factor ~ 1.2 and diminishes the observed deviations. The calculation method is shortly discussed and numerical results are compared to the experimental data.
The electroweak contribution to top quark pair production: cross sections and asymmetries
Davide Pagani
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: In this talk we review the electroweak contribution to top quark pair production at hadron colliders. We discuss the phenomenological impact of these corrections on the cross sections and on the charge asymmetries at the Tevatron and the LHC.
The electroweak contribution to the top quark forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron
Wolfgang Hollik,Davide Pagani
Physics , 2011, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.84.093003
Abstract: The electroweak contributions to the forward-backward asymmetry in the production of top-quark pairs at the Tevatron are evaluated at O(alpha^2) and O(alpha*alphas^2). We perform a detailed analysis of all partonic channels that produce an asymmetry and combine them with the QCD contributions. They provide a non-negligible fraction of the QCD-induced asymmetry with the same overall sign, thus enlarging the Standard Model prediction and diminishing the observed deviation. For the observed mass-dependent forward-backward asymmetry a 3-sigma deviation still remains at an invariant-mass cut of M_(t-tbar) > 450 GeV.
On cascade decays of squarks at the LHC in NLO QCD
Hollik, Wolfgang;Lindert, Jonas M.;Pagani, Davide
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2013,
Abstract: In this paper we present an analysis at NLO of the contribution from squark-squark production to the experimental signature 2j + 2l + missing E_T (+X) with opposite-sign same flavor leptons, taking into account decays and experimental cuts. We consider the case in which one squark decays directly into the lightest neutralino chi^0_1 and the other one into the second lightest neutralino and subsequently into l^+l^-chi^0_1 via an intermediate slepton. On one hand we study effects of the NLO corrections on invariant mass distributions which can be used for future parameter determination. On the other hand we analyze the impact on predictions for cut-and-count searches using this experimental signature.

NLO corrections to squark-squark production and decay at the LHC
Wolfgang Hollik,Jonas M. Lindert,Davide Pagani
Physics , 2012, DOI: 10.1007/JHEP03(2013)139
Abstract: We present the analysis of the signature 2j + ETmiss (+X) via squark-squark production and direct decay into the lightest neutralino, pp -> squark squark -> j j chi_1^0 chi_1^0 (+X), in next-to-leading order QCD within the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model. In our approximation the produced squarks are treated on shell. Thus, the calculation of production and decay factorizes. In this way, we provide a consistent, fully differential calculation of NLO QCD factorizable corrections to the given processes. Clustering final states into partonic jets, we investigate the experimental inclusive signature 2j + ETmiss for several benchmark scenarios. We compare resulting differential distributions with leading-order approximations rescaled by a flat K-factor and examine a possible impact for cut-and-count searches for supersymmetry at the LHC.
Associated production of a top-quark pair with vector bosons at NLO in QCD: impact on $t \bar{t} H$ searches at the LHC
Fabio Maltoni,Davide Pagani,Ioannis Tsinikos
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: We study the production of a top-quark pair in association with one and two vector bosons, $t \bar t V$ and $t \bar t VV$ with $V=\gamma, Z, W^\pm$, at the LHC. We provide predictions at next-to-leading order in QCD for total cross sections and top-quark charge asymmetries as well as for differential distributions. A thorough discussion of the residual theoretical uncertainties related to missing higher orders and to parton distribution functions is presented. As an application, we calculate the total cross sections for this class of processes (together with $t \bar t H$ and $t \bar t t \bar t$ production) at hadron colliders for energies up to 100 TeV. In addition, by matching the NLO calculation to a parton shower, we determine the contribution of $t \bar t V$ and $t \bar t VV$ to final state signatures (two-photon and two-same-sign-, three- and four-lepton) relevant for $t \bar t H$ analyses at the Run II of the LHC.
On the Impact of Lepton PDFs
Valerio Bertone,Stefano Carrazza,Davide Pagani,Marco Zaro
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: In this paper we discuss the effect of the complete leading-order QED corrections to the DGLAP equations in the perturbative evolution of parton distribution functions (PDFs). This requires the extension of the purely QCD DGLAP evolution, including a PDF for the photons and, consistently, also for the charged leptons $e^{\pm}$, $\mu^\pm$ and $\tau^\pm$. We present the implementation of the QED-corrected DGLAP evolution in the presence of photon and lepton PDFs in the APFEL program and, by means of different assumptions for the initial scale PDFs, we produce for the first time PDF sets containing charged lepton distributions. We also present phenomenological studies that aim to assess the impact of the presence of lepton PDFs in the proton for some relevant SM (and BSM) processes at the LHC at 13 TeV and the FCC-hh at 100 TeV. The impact of the photon PDF is also outlined for those processes.

Urban energy efficiency: a breakthrough vs. the global crisis
Roberto Pagani
Techne : Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment , 2011,
Abstract: The environmental design and its complex multi-disciplinary consequences are central in the thinking of the responsibilities, which the Institutes of Knowledge are based on. It is no longer a battle to the forefront, just for the explorers. It is an acquired and consolidated culture, but from an operational standpoint there are many areas of innovation, development, affirmation still to develop. The article focuses on four central aspects of the new culture of energy efficiency in urban systems: the new global/local decision making, the sustainability in urban processes, the new skills for research and development, the growing interest of industries in innovative urban technologies. It provides the main trends in Europe and a vision of a possible exit from the complex socio-economic situation of today: a culture of complexity and energy innovation as factors of development.
