Contact interactions in low scale string models with intersecting $D$6 -branes

Abstract : We evaluate the tree level four fermion string amplitudes in the TeV string mass scale models with intersecting $D$6-branes. The coefficient functions of contact interactions subsuming the contributions of string Regge resonance and winding mode excitations are obtained by subtracting out the contributions from the string massless and massive momentum modes. Numerical applications are developed for the Standard Model like solution of Cremades, Ibanez, and Marchesano for a toroidal orientifold with four intersecting D6-brane stacks. The chirality conserving contact interactions of the quarks and leptons are considered in applications to high energy collider and flavor changing neutral current phenomenology. The two main free parameters consist of the string and compactification mass scales, $m_s$ and $M_c$. Useful constraints on these parameters are derived from predictions for the Bhabha scattering differential cross section and for the observables associated to the mass shifts of the neutral meson systems $K$ − $\bar K$, $B$ − $\bar B$, $D$ − $\bar D$ and the lepton number violating three-body leptonic decays of the charged leptons $\mu$ and $\tau$ .
