#### Transport properties of chiral p-wave superconductor-normal metal nanostructures

In this thesis, we present a theory of electron transport for unconventional superconductors. We focus on the superconducting properties of Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub>, which is a strong candidate for two dimensional p-wave superconductivity in electronic systems. We present Green function formulation of the theory of ...

#### Development Towards a Model-dependent Measurement of the Muon Neutrino Charged Current Single Pi-plus Pion Momentum Spectrum

In this thesis the development and study of a method for a model-dependent measurement of the muon neutrino charged current (CC) single pion interaction's positive pion momentum spectrum is proposed. The measurement is part of the Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) experiment and was performed in Tokai at the near detector hall, using ...

#### Non-Relativistic Holography from Horava Gravity

Holography is a powerful theoretical duality that relates quantum gravitational theories to non-gravitational theories in one less dimension. The most explored example of this tool is the correspondence between general relativity on five dimensional Anti-de Sitter space and a four dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. ...

#### Relative Cross Section Measurment of Inclusive Charged Current Multiple Pion Production to Inclusive Charged Current from Muon Neutrinos at the Near Detector of the T2K Experiment

The Tokai-to-Kamiokande (T2K) experiment is an off-axis, long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment based in Japan. One of the largest sources of systematic uncertainty in the oscillation analysis is the uncertainty on neutrino cross sections. In this thesis, we use the π<super>0</super> detector (P0D) of the T2K Near ...

#### Topics in field theory and particle phenomenology

In this thesis, I focus on a few different applications of modern quantum field theory. I start with a model beyond the standard model: Little Flavor Theory and its related collider phenomenology. This model combines a flavor theory with Little Higgs theory, to explain the origin of flavor and little hierarchy problem at the ...

#### Multi-Hadron Observables from Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics

We describe formal work that relates the finite-volume spectrum in a quantum field theory to scattering and decay amplitudes. This is of particular relevance to numerical calculations performed using Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (LQCD). Correlators calculated using LQCD can only be determined on the Euclidean time axis. For ...

#### Systematic Azimuth Quadrupole and Minijet Trends from Two-Particle Correlations in Heavy-Ion Collisions

(2014-02-24)

Heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) produce a tremendous amount of data but new techniques are necessary for a comprehensive understanding of the physics behind these collisions. We present measurements from the STAR detector of both $p_t$-integral and $p_t$-differential azimuth two-particle ...
