Hierarchy problem for kids

Observed Planck scale: MPl ~ 1019 GeV

Susy? Running couplings? Observed EW scale: MEW ~ 102 GeV

The approach "from below"

(Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos & Dvali 1998; 1999; Antoniadis, Arkani-Hamed & Dvali 1998)

The space time is D-dimensional (D>4) SM fields are confined on a 3-brane in a higherdimensional space time Only gravity propagates in the n=D-4 extra dimensions

Marco Cavaglià 14th Course of the Int. School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics, Erice 2004 8

Factorizable geometries:

(e.g. Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos & Dvali 1998; 1999)

ds 2 = µ dx µ dx v + g ab ( y )dy a dy b

Non-Factorizable geometries:

(e.g. Randall & Sundrum 1999)

ds 2 = e 2 A( y ) µ dx µ dx v + g ab ( y )dy a dy b

How do we probe extra-dimensions?

All depends on M*...

If M* is ~ 1016TeV... ...experimental quantum gravity requires:

Funding unlikely!

Marco Cavaglià

14th Course of the Int. School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics, Erice 2004

11

But

If M* is ~ TeV... ...quantum gravity becomes strong at ~ TeV

This may be enough!

LHC: Center-of-Mass energy = 14 TeV

Marco Cavaglià 14th Course of the Int. School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics, Erice 2004 12

or even better...

UHECR: Center-of-Mass energy above 102 TeV!

Marco Cavaglià 14th Course of the Int. School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics, Erice 2004 16

Can we estimate the cross section of the process?

Yes!!

(At high energies BH formation is semiclassical)

Brane factories

For a symmetric compactification with n=2, M* ~ 1 TeV

rs ~ TeV-1 ~ 10-15 mm L ~ 0.1 mm

The BH "sees" an isotropic spacetime spherically symmetric What about asymmetric compactifications?

In asymmetric spaces the scattering of two particles...

Conclusion

Something must happen at E ~ TeV If large extra dimensions exist Planck scale ~ TeV Nonperturbative quantum gravity effects at E ~ TeV Creation of black holes & branes in colliders and in the atmosphere If not, constraints on the Planck scale If yes, new physics at the TeV scale Possible tests of strong gravitational effects
