Heavy flavour and direct photon probes of the gluon Sivers function
Traditionally the production of heavy quarkonia, heavyflavour mesons as well as of direct photons, has been used to constrain the gluon density inside the proton. In this thesis, I have assessed various heavy flavour ... 
The Higgs Boson as a Probe of Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider
(20180508)The nature of interactions of fundamental particles is governed by symmetries. These interactions are well described by an elegant and simple SU(3)c x SU(2)L x U(1)Y symmetric gauge theory that we call the Standard Model ... 
Higgs phenomenology and Dark Matter prospects in MSSM, NMSSM and U(1) extended SM
Particle physics today is at a juncture where all particles predicted within Standard Model (SM) have been discovered at the particle colliders while no particles from the realm of physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) ... 
Higher Spins, Entanglement Entropy And Holography
(20170821)The idea of holography [1, 2] finds a concrete realization in form of the AdS/CFT correspondence [3, 4]. This duality relates a field theory with conformal symmetries to quantum gravity living in one higher dimension. In ... 
Issues in Phenomenology of Heavy Quarks And Leptons
(20170926)The Standard Model (SM) of the particle physics, based on the gauge group SU(3) ×SU(2)L × U(1)Y , has been a successful theory which provides consistent description of all phenomena ranging from the nuclear beta decay to ... 
Lessons for Conformal Field Theories from Bootstrap and Holography
(20180206)The work done in this thesis includes an exploration of both the conformal field theory techniques and holographic techniques of the Gauge/Gravity duality. From the field theory, we have analyzed the analytical aspects of ... 
Lessons for Gravity from Entanglement
One of the recent fundamental developments in theoretical high energy physics is the AdS/CFT correspondence [1, 2, 3, 4] which posits a relationship between Quantum Field Theories (QFT) in a given dimension and String ... 
Living on the Edge A Study of Boundary Modes In Twodimensional Topological Systems
In the last few decades an enormous amount of research has been carried out on some novel phases of matter called topological phases which are beyond the paradigm of Landau’s theory of symmetry breaking. One of the ... 
Mesonic screening mass at zero and finite chemical potential
The finite temperature analysis of QCD is challenging since perturbation theory is not applicable in that regime. A nonperturbative method like lattice QCD is thus required to obtain an estimate of the necessary observables. ... 
Model Studies Of The Hot And Dense Strongly Interacting Matter
(20160425)Ultrarelativisitic heavy ion collisions produce quark gluon plasmaa hot and dense soup of deconfined quarks and gluons akin to the early universe. We study two models in the context of these collisions namely, Polyakov ... 
New tools to constrain EFTs and CFTs
In this thesis, we develop new methods for the S matrix bootstrap in the context of 22 scattering amplitudes and fourpoint correlators in conformal field theories (CFTs). For 22 scattering in quantum field theories, ... 
Novel Pathways for Beyond Standard Model Physics
In the light of discovering the Higgs boson and null results at the LHC, we look for new pathways for Beyond Standard Model Physics, which could accommodate at least one of the Standard Model shortcomings. (i) Unification ... 
On Hypergeometric solutions of Feynman integrals using MellinBarnes Integrals with Applications
Experimental measurements of physical observables in particle colliders rely on highprecision theoretical calculations to validate the predictions of any theoretical model and detect signals of new physics. These theoretical ... 
Phenomenological Explorations in Dark Matter
The previous decade has seen an explosive increase in explorations into the nature of dark matter (DM) encompassing astrophysical, particle and cosmological probes. We face today a large body of gravitational evidences ... 
Probing Higgs Boson Interactions At Future Colliders
(20101111)We present in this thesis a detailed analysis of Higgs boson interactions at future colliders. In particular we examine, in a model independent way, the sensitivity of an Linear Collider in probing the interaction of ... 
Probing the Beyond Standard Model Physics in Top Quark and Dark Matter Sectors
(20180522)The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics provides the theoretical framework to describe the fundamental interactions among elementary constituents of matter. SM is supported by experiments to a high degree of accuracy, ... 
Prompt and Displaced Signatures of Physics Beyond the Standard Model
The quest to understand our Universe’s fundamental particles and their interactions has led us to the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. Despite successfully explaining the weak, electromagnetic, and strong ... 
Quantum dynamics of weak measurements: Understanding the Born rule and applying weak error correction
Projective measurement is used as a fundamental axiom in quantum mechanics, even though it is discontinuous and cannot predict which measured operator eigen state will be observed in which experimental run. The probabilistic ... 
Quantum Spin Chains And Luttinger Liquids With Junctions : Analytical And Numerical Studies
(20100309)We present in this thesis a series of studies on the physical properties of some one dimensional systems. In particular we study the low energy properties of various spin chains and a junction of Luttinger wires. For spin ... 
Quantum walks and spatial search on regular graph
Random walks and algorithms based upon them are used widely to explore large state spaces that arise while studying physical systems. In this thesis, we will discuss some quantum generalizations of such algorithms and study ...
