Towards the renormalisation of the Standard Model effective field theory to dimension eight: Bosonic interactions II

We calculate the renormalisation group running of the bosonic Standard Model (SM) effective operators at one loop and to order v4/Λ4, with v246 GeV being the electroweak scale and Λ the unknown new physics threshold. We focus on contributions driven by one dimension-eight term and SM couplings, thus extending (and completing) the effort initiated in arXiv:2106.05291, in which quantum corrections from pairs of dimension-six interactions were considered. We highlight some interesting consequences, including the renormalisation of loop-induced interactions by tree-level generated terms and, more importantly, the validity of positivity bounds on different operators inducing anomalous gauge quartic couplings.

Beta-decay implications for the W-boson mass anomaly

We point out the necessity to consider $\beta$-decay observables in resolutions of the $W$-boson anomaly in the Standard Model Effective Field Theory that go beyond pure oblique corrections. We demonstrate that present global analyses that explain the $W$-boson mass anomaly predict a large, percent-level, violation of first-row CKM unitarity. We investigate what solutions to the $W$-boson mass anomaly survive after including $\beta$-decay constraints.
