The search for and study of exotic hadrons (tetra, penta, hexaquarks etc) has become a hot topic over recent years as a wealth of new data has arrived from current particle and nuclear physics experiments. Many new states have been observed and their properties measured, with different degrees of precision. Often similar states and search methods are discussed separately in the particle and...

Paris, May 29, 1832. In the middle of the night, on the eve of a duel, Évariste Galois, a little older than twenty, handles for the last time a manuscript full of equations and theorems he had written four years earlier. "I have no time! I do not have time!" he frantically wrote in the margins.

A documentary from an original idea and script by Giuseppe Mussardo. There will be...

Stars are the “Cauldrons in our cosmos“ being responsible for creating all of the chemical elements from carbon onwards. The elemental abundances we observe today in our solar system are a result of many different nucleosynthesis processes taking place in various kinds of stars and phases of stellar evolution, over billions of years. To understand how our universe evolved chemically, and...

The study of scattering amplitudes has developped substantially over the past few years, with applications ranging from precision calculations for the LHC through new approaches to gauge theories and gravity and ending with pure mathematics. The annual meeting Amplitudes 2017...

The Flavour Lattice Averaging Group (FLAG) is reviewing results from lattice QCD for pion, kaon, D- and B-meson physics, quark masses and the strong coupling constant. Our aim is to make lattice QCD results easily accessible to the wider particle physics community. 

FLAG is a worldwide collaboration  and comprises experts in Lattice Field Theory, Chiral Perturbation Theory and Standard...

The Regge limit (or the limit of high-energy scattering) was recognised long ago as one where unique insight can be gained into scattering processes, owing to a simplified effective description through new degrees of freedom in two-dimensions. Recent advances in the study of scattering amplitudes led to a resurgence in this field, with significant progress in both maximally supersymmetric Yang...
