Applications of Holography
This thesis consists of four parts. In the first part of the thesis, we investigate the phase structure of EinsteinMaxwellScalar system with a negative cosmological constant. For the conformally coupled scalar, an ... 
Aspects of conformal field theories at finite temperature
In this thesis we have studied broadly two aspects of thermal field theory. We began by examining how the macroscopic system (described by relativistic hydrodynamics) behalves in presence of microscopic anomalies. We ... 
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 ... 
A Study of the LowEnergy Spectrum and Phase Structure of a YangMills Matrix Model
YangMills theory is a nonAbelian gauge theory based on the gauge group SU(N), and lies at the heart of the QCD, the theory underlying strong interactions. Due to the fundamental property of asymptotic freedom, a study ... 
Some phenomenological studies of the Higgs boson(s) in the Standard Model and beyond
The fundamental particles and their interactions are described by the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. Various experiments has been performed over the years and they indicate towards the consistency of the SM with ... 
Applications of Moonshine Symmetry in String Theory
In this thesis we study the applications of Mathieu moonshine symmetry to compacti cations of supersymmetric string theories. These theories are compacti ed on a 6 dimensional manifold K3 T2. The main ingredient in ... 
Aspects of Heavy Supersymmetry
The recent discovery of a Higgs boson with a mass around 125 GeV, taken together with experimental results from flavor factories, dark matter direct detection, and searches for SUSY particles in the LHC suggest that ... 
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) ... 
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 ... 
Topological Phases, Majorana Modes, Dynamics and Transport in OneDimensional Systems
This thesis presents work done on topological phases, Majorana modes, dynamics and transport in various system like the Kitaev models in one and two dimensions and systems with junctions of a pwave superconductor and ... 
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 ... 
Understanding Conformal Field Theory in Mellin Space
In the last decade, there has been tremendous progress in understanding conformal eld theories in more than two spacetime dimensions. The numerical bootstrap framework has been pushed to a very advanced level of ... 
Direct and Indirect Search for New Physics at Colliders
The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics has been remarkably successful to describe strong, weak and electromagnetic forces of nature, as it has agreed with most of the experiments till date. However, there are still ... 
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 ... 
Aspects of time dependence in quantum quenches
In this thesis we study the time dependence of correlators such as Green function, entanglement (Renyi) entropy and mutual information following quantum quench in Conformal Field Theories (CFTs) and their holographic duals ... 
Aspects of Higher Spin Theories Conformal Field Theories and Holography
(20180530)This dissertation consist of three parts. The first part of the thesis is devoted to the study of gravity and higher spin gauge theories in 2+1 dimensions. We construct cosmological solutions of higher spin gravity in 2+1 ... 
Conformal Bootstrap : Old and New
(20180525)Conformal Field Theories (CFT) are Quantum Field Theories characterized by enhanced (conformal) symmetries. They are interesting to Theoretical Physicists because they occur at critical points in phase transitions of various ... 
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, ... 
Studies of Topological Phases of Matter : Presence of Boundary Modes and their Role in Electrical Transport
(20180521)Topological phases of matter represent a new phase which cannot be understood in terms of Landau’s theory of symmetry breaking and are characterized by nonlocal topological properties emerging from purely local (microscopic) ... 
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 ...
