Sameness and non-identity : a study of the philosophy of the everyday

Mavridis, Iraklis January 1994 (has links)
The aim of this thesis is to examine critically the concept of the everyday and everydayness in the light of modem phenomenologically-influenced philosophy. Although a lot of work has been done concerning this topic by the sociology of everyday life, our aim is to thematize the everyday in order to understand its underlying philosophical themes and questions. We examine textually some key works by Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger which will provide us with an access to the thematics of the everyday. Following this, we discuss the most important themes underlying the question of the everyday, namely, time, language and the self, always in reference to the writings of Husserl, Heidegger and Jacques Derrida. We examine critically the claim that the everyday is fundamentally defmed as a mode of temporality - the present in its repetition - and as a state of discourse - everyday language or common sense; we also examine the self and its relations to the Other as the basis of the intersubjective nature of everydayness. In the last chapter we try to present a coherent picture of what a thematization of the concept of the everyday might involve. The everyday can be described - but never absolutely defmed - as obvious, pre-given, unthematic, average etc. and is determined by a cluster of metaphysical themes (time, language, the self etc.) as the most basic state of existence. Our fundamental claim is that a certain reading of the concept of the everyday can question these transcendental, philosophical categories and that the everyday has to be thought, following Derrida, as a non-identical repetition of the same, that is, as a trace

Unblinding the dark matter blind spots

Han, Tao, Kling, Felix, Su, Shufang, Wu, Yongcheng 10 February 2017 (has links)
The dark matter (DM) blind spots in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) refer to the parameter regions where the couplings of the DM particles to the Z-boson or the Higgs boson are almost zero, leading to vanishingly small signals for the DM direct detections. In this paper, we carry out comprehensive analyses for the DM searches under the blind-spot scenarios in MSSM. Guided by the requirement of acceptable DM relic abundance, we explore the complementary coverage for the theory parameters at the LHC, the projection for the future underground DM direct searches, and the indirect searches from the relic DM annihilation into photons and neutrinos. We find that (i) the spin-independent (SI) blind spots may be rescued by the spin-dependent (SD) direct detection in the future underground experiments, and possibly by the indirect DM detections from IceCube and SuperK neutrino experiments; (H) the detection of gamma rays from Fermi-LAT may not reach the desirable sensitivity for searching for the DM blind spot regions; (Hi) the SUSY searches at the LHC will substantially extend the discovery region for the blind-spot parameters. The dark matter blind spots thus may be unblinded with the collective efforts in future DM searches.

Effective Field Theory approach to heavy quark fragmentation

Fickinger, Michael, Fleming, Sean, Kim, Chul, Mereghetti, Emanuele 17 November 2016 (has links)
Using an approach based on Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) and Heavy Quark Effective Theory (HQET) we determine the b-quark fragmentation function from electron-positron annihilation data at the Z-boson peak at next-to-next-to leading order with next-to-next-to leading log resummation of DGLAP logarithms, and next-to-next-to next -to leading log resummation of endpoint logarithms. This analysis improves, by one order, the previous extraction of the b-quark fragmentation function. We find that while the addition of the next order in the calculation does not much shift the extracted form of the fragmentation function, it does reduce theoretical errors indicating that the expansion is converging. Using an approach based on effective field theory allows us to systematically control theoretical errors. While the fits of theory to data are generally good, the fits seem to be hinting that higher order correction from HQET may be needed to explain the b-quark fragmentation function at smaller values of momentum fraction.
