  • Casimir force on a light front
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2020-11-21
    S.S. Chabysheva; J.R. Hiller

    Depending on the point of view, the Casimir force arises from variation in the energy of the quantum vacuum as boundary conditions are altered or as an interaction between atoms in the materials that form these boundary conditions. Standard analyses of such configurations are usually done in terms of ordinary, equal-time (Minkowski) coordinates. However, physics is independent of the coordinate choice

  • Precision physics with inclusive QCD processes
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2020-12-26
    Antonio Pich

    The inclusive production of hadrons through electroweak currents can be rigorously analysed with short-distance theoretical tools. The associated observables are insensitive to the involved infrared behaviour of the strong interaction, allowing for very precise tests of Quantum Chromodynamics. The theoretical predictions for σ(e+e−→hadrons) and the hadronic decay widths of the τ lepton and the Z, W

  • Modern meson spectroscopy: The fundamental role of unitarity
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2020-12-19
    E. van Beveren; G. Rupp

    The importance of S-matrix unitarity in realistic meson spectroscopy is reviewed, both its historical development and more recent applications. First the effects of imposing S-matrix unitarity on meson resonances are demonstrated in both the elastic and the inelastic case. Then, the static quark model is revisited and its theoretical and phenomenological shortcomings are highlighted. A detailed account

    In this review article we discuss the present status of direct nuclear reactions and the nuclear structure aspects one can study with them. We discuss the spectroscopic information we can assess in experiments involving transfer reactions, heavy-ion-induced knockout reactions and quasifree scattering with (p,2p), (p,pn), and (e,e′p) reactions. In particular, we focus on the proton-to-neutron asymmetry

  • What comes after the Standard Model?
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2020-10-10
    M. Khlopov

    The standard model (SM) of elementary particles involves particle symmetry and the mechanism of its breaking. It finds no contradictions in the collider experiments, but appeals to extensions for solutions of its internal problems and in view of its evident incompleteness. The paradigm of the modern cosmology is based on inflationary models with baryosynthesis and dark matter/energy that involves physics

    We review lattice studies of the color screening in the quark–gluon plasma. We put the phenomena related to the color screening into the context of similar aspects of other physical systems (electromagnetic plasma or cold nuclear matter). We discuss the onset of the color screening and its signature and significance in the QCD transition region, and elucidate at which temperature and to which extent

    The last decade has seen a marked shift in how the internal structure of hadrons is understood. Modern experimental facilities, new theoretical techniques for the continuum bound-state problem and progress with lattice-regularised QCD have provided strong indications that soft quark+quark (diquark) correlations play a crucial role in hadron physics. For example, theory indicates that the appearance

    Michael Block; Mustapha Laatiaoui; Sebastian Raeder

    The interest to perform laser spectroscopy in the heaviest elements arises from the strong impact of relativistic effects, electron correlations and quantum electrodynamics on their atomic structure. Once this atomic structure is well understood, laser spectroscopy also provides access to nuclear properties such as spins, mean-square charge radii and electromagnetic moments in a nuclear-model independent

    In the understanding of the fundamental interactions, the origin of an arrow of time is viewed as problematic. However, quantum field theory has an arrow of causality, which tells us which time direction is the past lightcone and which is the future. This direction is tied to the conventions used in the quantization procedures. The different possible causal directions have related physics — in this

    This article presents a number of technical tools and results that may be instrumental to discern the nature of the Higgs particle. In scenarios where an additional strongly interacting sector is present in the electroweak theory, resulting in a composite Higgs and longitudinal components of the massive gauge bosons, unitarity, analyticity and related techniques will be crucial to understand the properties

    Exascale computing could soon enable a predictive theory of nuclear structure and reactions rooted in the Standard Model, with quantifiable and systematically improvable uncertainties. Such a predictive theory will help exploit experiments that use nucleons and nuclei as laboratories for testing the Standard Model and its limitations.

    Neutrino-less double-beta decay (0νββ) is a hypothetical nuclear transition which violates lepton-number conservation and is therefore forbidden by the Standard Model of particle physics. Its observation would unambiguously demonstrate that neutrinos are Majorana particles and would provide unique information about the ordering and absolute scale of neutrino masses.

  • BCS–BEC crossover in cold atomic and in nuclear systems
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-11-14
    Y. Ohashi, H. Tajima, P. van Wyk

    We review the BCS (Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer)–BEC (Bose–Einstein condensation) crossover phenomenon discussed in an ultracold Fermi atomic gas and a neutron superfluid in the low-density crust regime of a neutron star. A purpose of this paper is to show that these two very different atomic and nuclear systems can be closely related to each other from the viewpoint of this quantum many-body phenomenon

  • Status of light sterile neutrino searches
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-11-02
    Sebastian Böser, Christian Buck, Carlo Giunti, Julien Lesgourgues, Livia Ludhova, Susanne Mertens, Anne Schukraft, Michael Wurm

    A number of anomalous results in short-baseline oscillation may hint at the existence of one or more light sterile neutrino states in the eV mass range and have triggered a wave of new experimental efforts to search for a definite signature of oscillations between active and sterile neutrino states. The present paper aims to provide a comprehensive review on the status of light sterile neutrino searches

  • Cluster structure of light nuclei
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-10-23
    R. Bijker, F. Iachello

    We review recent studies of the cluster structure of light nuclei within the framework of the algebraic cluster model (ACM) for nuclei composed of k α-particles and within the framework of the cluster shell model (CSM) for nuclei composed of k α-particles plus x additional nucleons. The calculations, based on symmetry considerations and thus for the most part given in analytic form, are compared with

  • Coupled-channel approach in hadron–hadron scattering
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-09-14
    J.A. Oller

    Coupled-channel dynamics for scattering and production processes in partial-wave amplitudes is discussed from a perspective that emphasizes unitarity and analyticity. We elaborate on several methods that have driven to important results in hadron physics, either by themselves or in conjunction with effective field theory. We also develop the use of the Lippmann–Schwinger equation in near-threshold

  • Why is there more matter than antimatter? Calculational methods for leptogenesis and electroweak baryogenesis
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-09-10
    Björn Garbrecht

    We review the production of the matter–antimatter asymmetry in the early Universe, that is baryogenesis, in out-of-equilibrium conditions induced by decays of heavy particles or by the presence of phase boundaries. The most prominent examples are given by leptogenesis and electroweak baryogenesis, respectively. For both cases, we derive the equations that govern the production of the asymmetries. We

  • Heavy ion charge exchange reactions as probes for nuclear β-decay
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-08-12
    Horst Lenske, Francesco Cappuzzello, Manuela Cavallaro, Maria Colonna

    The status and prospects of heavy ion charge exchange reactions are reviewed. Their important role for nuclear reaction, nuclear structure, and beta-decay investigations is emphasized. Dealing with peripheral reactions, direct reaction theory gives at hand the proper methods for single (SCE) and double charge exchange (DCE) ion–ion scattering. The microscopic descriptions of charge exchange ion–ion

  • Hadron matter in neutron stars in view of gravitational wave observations
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-08-07
    Felipe J. Llanes-Estrada, Eva Lope-Oter

    In this review we highlight a few physical properties of neutron stars and their theoretical treatment inasmuch as they can be useful for nuclear and particle physicists concerned with matter at finite density (and newly, temperature). Conversely, we lay out some of the hadron physics necessary to test General Relativity with binary mergers including at least one neutron star, in view of the event

  • Gravitational waves from neutron star mergers and their relation to the nuclear equation of state
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-08-02
    Luca Baiotti

    In this article, I introduce ideas and techniques to extract information about the equation of state of matter at very high densities from gravitational waves emitted before, during and after the merger of binary neutron stars. I also review current work and results on the actual use of the first gravitational-wave observation of a neutron-star merger to set constraints on properties of such equation

  • Experimental aspects of geoneutrino detection: Status and perspectives
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-08-01
    O. Smirnov

    Neutrino geophysics, the study of the Earth’s interior by measuring the fluxes of geologically produced neutrino at its surface, is a new interdisciplinary field of science, rapidly developing as a synergy between geology, geophysics and particle physics. Geoneutrinos, antineutrinos from long-lived natural isotopes responsible for the radiogenic heat flux, provide valuable information for the chemical

  • Towards an ab initio covariant density functional theory for nuclear structure
    Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. (IF 13.421) Pub Date : 2019-08-01
    Shihang Shen, Haozhao Liang, Wen Hui Long, Jie Meng, Peter Ring

    Nuclear structure models built from phenomenological mean fields, the effective nucleon–nucleon interactions (or Lagrangians), and the realistic bare nucleon–nucleon interactions are reviewed. The success of covariant density functional theory (CDFT) to describe nuclear properties and its influence on Brueckner theory within the relativistic framework are focused upon. The challenges and ambiguities

    In this review article we present some of the major applications for cosmogenic nuclide studies; extraterrestrial applications on meteorites, lunar surface samples but also on interstellar grains and terrestrial applications ranging from ages for exposure and burial over erosion and denudation rates to uplift and soil dynamics. For all the applications a good knowledge of the cosmogenic nuclide production

    We review progress in high-energy cosmic ray physics focusing on recent experimental results and models developed for their interpretation. Emphasis is put on the propagation of charged cosmic rays, covering the whole range from ∼(20–50) GV, i.e. the rigidity when solar modulations can be neglected, up to the highest energies observed. We discuss models aiming to explain the anomalies in Galactic cosmic

    Recent progress in the formulation of relativistic hydrodynamics for particles with spin one-half is reviewed. We start with general arguments advising introduction of a tensor spin chemical potential that plays a role of the Lagrange multiplier coupled to the spin angular momentum. Then, we turn to a discussion of spin-dependent distribution functions that have been recently proposed to construct

  • Interplay of neutron–proton equilibration and nuclear dynamics

    Alan B. McIntosh, Sherry J. Yennello

    Neutron–proton equilibration in heavy-ion collisions proceeds atop a landscape of deformed topography and large density changes. The rapidly-varying landscape is created by the collision dynamics. The collision dynamics influences the neutron–proton equilibration, but just as importantly the different migration of the protons and neutrons influences the dynamics. To fully appreciate either the reaction
