FI: BARYON NUMBER: A KEY TO PHYSICS BEYOND THE STANDARD MODEL 
 ELENCO COMPLETO

SEZIONE DI FIRENZE
Seminario Michael Duerr (DESY) Baryon number, one of the accidental global symmetries of the Standard Model, can act as a key to open the door to new physics. After a recap of the history of theories for baryon number, I will show that interesting implications arise from writing down a consistent gauge theory for baryon number. This gauge symmetry can be broken at a low scale without introducing dangerous baryon number non-conserving operators inducing proton decay, obviating the need to postulate the existence of a large desert to suppress this process. Besides that, anomaly cancellation demands the introduction of additional fermions, and I will discuss two possible implications of this: I will present models where the dark matter candidate carries baryon number, and I will show that one can find sets of fermions that nicely implement a KSVZ sector for the QCD axion with a Peccei-Quinn symmetry protected from Planck-scale physics.
