Problems with Higgsplosion
/ Belyaev, Alexander ; Bezrukov, Fedor ; Shepherd, Chris ; Ross, Douglas
A recent calculation of the multiHiggs boson production in scalar theories with spontaneous symmetry breaking has demonstrated the fast growth of the cross section with the Higgs multiplicity at sufficiently large energies, called “Higgsplosion.” It was argued that Higgsplosion solves the Higgs hierarchy and finetuning problems.

3D mirror symmetry from $S$duality
/ Nieri, Fabrizio ; Pan, Yiwen ; Zabzine, Maxim
We consider type IIB $\mathrm{SL}(2,Z)$ symmetry to relate the partition functions of different 5d supersymmetric Abelian linear quiver YangMills theories in the $\Omega $background and squashed ${S}^{5}$ background. [...]

Dynamical Dark Matter, MATHUSLA, and the lifetime frontier
/ Curtin, David ; Dienes, Keith R. ; Thomas, Brooks
MATHUSLA is a proposed surface detector at CERN that would be able to observe the decays of nonhadronic electrically neutral longlived particles (LLPs) with almost no background or trigger limitations. [...]

Measurement of the ${\gamma}^{*}{\gamma}^{*}\to \eta \prime $ transition form factor
/ Lees, J. P. ; Poireau, V. ; Tisserand, V. ; Grauges, E. ; et al
We study the process ${e}^{+}{e}^{}\to {e}^{+}{e}^{}{\eta}^{\prime}$ in the doubletag mode and measure for the first time the ${\gamma}^{\star}{\gamma}^{\star}\to {\eta}^{\prime}$ transition form factor ${F}_{{\eta}^{\prime}}({Q}_{1}^{2},{Q}_{2}^{2})$ in the momentumtransfer range $2<{Q}_{1}^{2}$, ${Q}_{2}^{2}<60\text{}\text{}{\mathrm{GeV}}^{2}$.
