  What would be the implication of a real leptoquark signal at about 650 GeV ?

+ 3 like - 0 dislike

What would be the (theoretical) implications of a near 650 GeV leptoquark, as it could for example potentially be seen in a new CMS paper?

In the TRF article, it is said that such particles would be rather bizarre and unmotivated, and they have rather bad habitudes such as for example to mediate not observed proton decays.

Most probably, the way to deluted for a particle with well defined mass excess with a significiance of just 2.4 sigma will go away... But if it does not, could it for example be some kind of a (chiral) leptoquark from F-theory?

What is a chiral leptoquark? It puzzles me because U(1) EM and SU(3) colour are the non-chiral forces of the standard model, so it is a bit intriguing.

From page 7 of http://www.math.waikato.ac.nz/~kab/papers/zeta.pdf "The holomorphic flow of the Riemann Zeta function"

The following patterns are observed: A and D repeat, and the repeating blocks alternate, other than the occasional C and B, which also might repeat. F and G are rare and E or H even more so. The single occurrence of E is at zero number 379 near 650.669, and that of H at zero number 289 near 527.904.

The pattern of zeros they are referring to there are 8 types that the zeros can be classified as, depending upon the real part, imaginary part, and square of the curvature of the holomorphic flow defined by s'=(ds)/(dτ)=ζ(s) 

13 of of the infinity of zeros are stable foci, maybe that particle is 1 out of those 13
