The LHCb measurement of the $\mu/e$ ratio $R_{K^*}$ indicates a deficit with respect to the Standard Model prediction, supporting earlier hints of lepton universality violation observed in the $R_K$ ratio. [...]

Single top polarisation as a window to new physics / Aguilar-Saavedra, J.A. (Granada U., Theor. Phys. Astrophys.) ; Degrande, C. (CERN) ; Khatibi, S. (IPM, Tehran)
We discuss the effect of heavy new physics, parameterised in terms of four-fermion operators, in the polarisation of single top (anti-)quarks in the $t$-channel process at the LHC. It is found that for operators involving a right-handed top quark field the relative effect on the longitudinal polarisation is twice larger than the relative effect on the total cross section. [...]

Colorful Twisted Top Partners and Partnerium at the LHC / Kats, Yevgeny (CERN ; Ben Gurion U. of Negev ; Weizmann Inst.) ; McCullough, Matthew (CERN) ; Perez, Gilad (Weizmann Inst.) ; Soreq, Yotam (MIT, Cambridge, CTP) ; Thaler, Jesse (MIT, Cambridge, CTP)
In scenarios that stabilize the electroweak scale, the top quark is typically accompanied by partner particles. In this work, we demonstrate how extended stabilizing symmetries can yield scalar or fermionic top partners that transform as ordinary color triplets but carry exotic electric charges. [...]

Where is Particle Physics Going? / Ellis, John (King's Coll. London ; CERN)
The answer to the question in the title is: in search of new physics beyond the Standard Model, for which there are many motivations, including the likely instability of the electroweak vacuum, dark matter, the origin of matter, the masses of neutrinos, the naturalness of the hierarchy of mass scales, cosmological inflation and the search for quantum gravity [...]

Long-range critical exponents near the short-range crossover / Behan, Connor (YITP, Stony Brook) ; Rastelli, Leonardo (YITP, Stony Brook) ; Rychkov, Slava (CERN ; Ecole Normale Superieure ; UPMC, Paris (main)) ; Zan, Bernardo (ITPP, Lausanne ; CERN)
The $d$-dimensional long-range Ising model, defined by spin-spin interactions decaying with the distance as the power $1/r^{d+s}$, admits a second order phase transition with continuously varying critical exponents. At $s = s_*$, the phase transition crosses over to the usual short-range universality class. [...]

Radiative symmetry breaking from interacting UV fixed points / Abel, Steven (Durham U., IPPP ; CERN) ; Sannino, Francesco (CERN ; U. Southern Denmark, CP3-Origins ; U. Southern Denmark, Odense, DIAS)
It is shown that the addition of positive mass-squared terms to asymptotically safe gauge-Yukawa theories with perturbative UV fixed points leads to calculable radiative symmetry breaking in the IR. [...]

Wilson lines and UV sensitivity in magnetic compactifications / Ghilencea, D.M. (Bucharest, IFIN-HH) ; Lee, Hyun Min (Chung-Ang U.)
We investigate the ultraviolet (UV) behaviour of 6D N=1 supersymmetric effective (Abelian) gauge theories compactified on a two-torus ($T_2$) with magnetic flux. To this purpose we compute offshell the one-loop correction to the Wilson line state self-energy. [...]
