New Results on Short-Range Correlations in Nuclei

Nuclear dynamics at short distances is one of the most fascinating topics of strong interaction physics. The physics of it is closely related to the understanding of the role of the QCD in generating nuclear forces at short distances, as well as of the dynamics of the superdense cold nuclear matter relevant to the interior of neutron stars. The emergence of high-energy electron and proton beams has led to significant recent progress in high-energy nuclear scattering experiments investigating the short-range structure of nuclei. These experiments, in turn, have stimulated new theoretical studies resulting in the observation of several new phenomena specific to the short-range structure of nuclei. We review recent theoretical and experimental progress in studies of short-range correlations in nuclei and discuss their importance for advancing our understanding of the dynamics of nuclear interactions at short distances.

    Astrophysical Sources of High-Energy Neutrinos in the IceCube Era

    High-energy neutrino astrophysics has come of age with IceCube's discovery of neutrinos in the TeV to PeV energy range, attributable to extragalactic sources at cosmological distances. At such energies, astrophysical neutrinos must originate in cosmic-ray interactions, providing information ... more

    Reactor Neutrino Experiments: Present and Future

    Reactor neutrinos have been an important tool for both discovery and precision measurement in the history of neutrino studies. Since the first generation of reactor neutrino experiments in the 1950s, the detector technology has advanced greatly. New ideas, new knowledge, and modern software ... more

    Electroweak Measurements at the LHC

    To our present knowledge, all of the physics at the LHC can be described in the framework of the Standard Model of particle physics. Indeed, the newly discovered Higgs boson with a mass close to 125 GeV seems to confirm the predictions of the theory. Thus, in addition to looking for direct ... more
