        Combined inclusive diffractive cross sections measured with forward proton spectrometers at HERA
        A combination of the inclusive diffractive cross section measurements made by the H1 and ZEUS Collaborations at HERA is presented. The analysis uses diffractive deep inelastic scattering data measured by means of proton spectrometers. Correlations of systematic uncertainties are taken into account by the combination method,resulting in improved precision. The combined data cover the range 2.5 < Q2 < 200 GeV2 in photon virtualities, 0.00035 < xIP < 0.09 in fractional momentum losses, 0.09 < |t| < 0.55 GeV2 in four momentum transfer at the proton vertex and 0.0018 < beta < 0.56 in beta = x/xIP, where x is the Bjorken scaling variable.

        Measurement of the Diffractive Longitudinal Structure Function F_L^D at HERA
        First measurements are presented of the diffractive cross section $\sigma_{ep \rightarrow eXY}$ at centre-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s}$ of 225 and 252 GeV, together with a precise new measurement at $\sqrt{s}$ of 319 GeV, using data taken with the H1 detector in the years 2006 and 2007. Together with previous H1 data at $\sqrt{s}$ of 301 GeV, the measurements are used to extract the diffractive longitudinal structure function F_L^D in the range of photon virtualities 4.0 <= Q^2 <= 44.0 GeV^2 and fractional proton longitudinal momentum loss 5 10^{-4} <= x_{IP} <= 3 10^{-3}. The measured F_L^D is compared with leading twist predictions based on diffractive parton densities extracted in NLO QCD fits to previous measurements of diffractive Deep-Inelastic Scattering and with a model which additionally includes a higher twist contribution derived from a colour dipole approach. The ratio of the diffractive cross section induced by longitudinally polarised photons to that for transversely polarised photons is extracted and compared with the analogous quantity for inclusive Deep-Inelastic Scattering.

        Inclusive Measurement of Diffractive Deep Inelastic Scattering at HERA
        Measurements of the cross section for the diffractive process ep -> eXY are presented, where Y is a proton or a low mass proton excitation carrying a fraction 1 − xIP > 0.95 of the incident proton longitudinal momentum and the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex satisfying MY < 1.6 GeV and |t| < 1.0 GeV^2. Using data taken by the H1 experiment, the cross section is measured for photon virtualities in the range 3 <= Q2 < =1600 GeV^2, triple differentially in xIP , Q^2 and beta = x/xIP , where x is the Bjorken scaling variable. Thesemeasurements are made after selecting diffractive events by demanding that a large rapidity interval separates the final state hadronic systems X and Y . New measurements covering data taking periods 1999-2000 and 2004-2007 are combined with previously published results in order to provide a single set of diffractive cross sections using the large rapidity gap selection method from the H1 experiment. Comparisons of measurements with predictions from the diffractive parton density and dipole models are shown. Finally, the proton vertex factorisation hypothesis, which is an important aspect in the modelling of diffractive structure, is discussed.

        Measurement of Dijet Production in Diffractive Deep-Inelastic Scattering with a Leading Proton at HERA
        The cross section of diffractive deep-inelastic scattering ep \rightarrow eXp is measured, where the system X contains at least two jets and the leading final state proton is detected in the H1 Forward Proton Spectrometer. The measurement is performed for fractional proton longitudinal momentum loss xIP < 0.1 and covers the range 0.1 < |t| < 0.7 GeV2 in squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex and 4 < Q2 < 110 GeV2 in photon virtuality. The differential cross sections extrapolated to |t| < 1 GeV2 are in agreement with next-toleading order QCD predictions based on diffractive parton distribution functions extracted from measurements of inclusive and dijet cross sections in diffractive deep-inelastic scattering. The data are also compared with leading order Monte Carlo models.

The search combines several Higgs boson decay channels in the mass range from 110 GeV to 600 GeV and derives upper limits on the production cross section as a function of the Higgs boson mass. A wide range of Higgs boson mass hypotheses is excluded at a 95% confidence level. Some excess of events is also reported.

        The LHCb upgrade
        The LHCb experiment is designed to perform high-precision measurements of CP violation and search for New Physics using the enormous flux of beauty and charmed hadrons produced at the LHC. The operation and the results obtained from the data collected in 2010 and 2011 demonstrate that the detector is robust and functioning very well. However, the limit of 1 fb$^{-1}$ of data per year cannot be overcome without improving the detector. We therefore plan for an upgraded spectrometer by 2018 with a 40 MHz readout and a much more flexible software-based triggering system that will increase the data rate as well as the efficiency specially in the hadronic channels. Here we present the LHCb detector upgrade plans, based on the recently submitted Letter of Intent, with a particular focus on prospects for QCD-related physics analyses.

        Isolated photons+jet in DIS
        Isolated-photon+jet production in ep collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of up to 300 pb-1. Measurements of prompt-photon+jet cross sections are presented as functions of the photon transverse energy and pseudorapidity in a wide range of exchanged-photon virtuality. In addition, differential gamma+jet cross sections are presented as functions of the jet transverse energy and pseudorapidity. Leading-logarithm parton-shower Monte Carlo predictions and perturbative QCD calculations were compared to the data.

        Photon and photon+jet production measured with the ATLAS detector
        Isolated prompt photons provide a direct probe of short-distance physics, complementary to that provided by measurements of jets or vector-bosons. The inclusive prompt photon cross section has been measured over a wide range of transverse momenta; the diphoton cross section has also been measured as a function of diphoton mass, total transverse momentum and azimuthal separation; the cross section for photons produced in association with jets is also measured. The results use data to suppress backgrounds, and also to remove the effects of underlying event and multiple proton-proton interactions in a theoretically well-controlled manner. The results are compared to the predictions of next-to-leading-order QCD.

        I present predictions for the inclusive production of D- and B-mesons at the CERN LHC in the general-mass variable-flavor-number scheme at next-to-leading order, an approach which takes into account the finite mass of the heavy quarks. Numerical results are compared to data where available. Measurements at large rapidities have the potential to pin down models of intrinsic charm.

        Open heavy flavor production in pp collisions with ALICE at LHC
        ALICE is the LHC experiment dedicated to the study of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) in Pb-Pb collisions. Heavy quarks are ideal probes to explore the QGP formation and properties, since they experience the full collision history and are expected to be abundantly produced at the LHC. It is of great importance to measure the heavy flavor cross section not only in Pb-Pb collisions, but also in pp collisions. In fact, the measurement in the latter is used both as a reference for the Pb-Pb results and as test of the pQCD predictions in a new energy domain. ALICE measures heavy quark production both at central and forward rapidity, reconstructing heavy flavour particles, both exclusively, using a selection of hadronic decay channels, and inclusively, using single leptons. Since the start up of the LHC, ALICE has been collecting Pb-Pb data at √sNN = 2.76 TeV and pp data at √s = 2.76 and 7 TeV. We present results on the measurement of heavy quark production through the hadronic decay channels of D mesons and via single leptons, with emphasis on the results obtained with pp data.

        Production of c-cbar pairs at LHC: k_t-factorization and double-parton scattering
        We discuss charm production at LHC. The production of single $c \bar c$ pairs is calculated in the $k_t$-factorization approach. We use several unintegrated gluon distributions from the literature. Some of them include effect of small-$x$ saturation and fulfill Balitsky-Kovchegov evolution equation. The hadronization is included with the help of fragmentation functions found for the production of $c$ ($\bar c$) in $e^+ e^-$ collisions. Differential distributions for several charmed mesons will be presented and compared to recent results of the ALICE and LHCb collaborations. Some missing strength is identified. Different schemes of fragmentation are discussed. Furthermore we discuss production of two pairs of $c \bar c$ within a simple formalism of double-parton scattering (DPS). Surprisingly large cross sections, comparable to single-parton scattering (SPS) contribution, are predicted for LHC energies. Both total inclusive cross section as a function of energy and differential distributions are shown. We include recently discussed evolution of double partons in the case of two scales. We discuss perspectives how to identify the double scattering contribution. We find much larger cross section for large rapidity distance between charm quarks from different hard parton scatterings compared to single scattering. First predictions for two $c \bar c$ pair production in single-parton scattering will be presented. Predictions for the production of different pairs of charm mesons ($D0 $D0$, D0 {\bar D}0$, etc.) are presented for the kinematics of LHCb experiment. I will show also predictions for so-called nonphotonic electrons and muons coming from the semileptonic decays of charmed mesons. The double-parton scattering gives large contribution with large (pseudo)rapidity gap between electrons ($e^+ e^+, $e^- e^-, $e^+ e^-$) or muons. This can be measured experimentally.

        Recent Results of Double Helicity Asymmetries at PHENIX
        The determination of the gluon polarization within the proton, $\Delta G$, is one of the critical pieces to understanding the proton spin puzzle. Using collisions of polarized protons with $\sqrt{s}=200 \:GeV$ and $\sqrt{s}=500 \:GeV$ at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), PHENIX can access gluons and $\Delta G$ at leading order. Constraints on $\Delta G$ come from measurements of double longitudinal asymmetries, $A_{LL}$, of various particle production cross sections. We will present the recent $A_{LL}$ results at central $(|{\eta}|<0.35)$ and forward $(3.1 < |{\eta}| < 3.9)$ rapidities along with comparisons to various models of the gluon polarization. A summary of the current issues limiting the precision of these measurements will follow. Finally, we will discuss the possibilities in the near to mid-term future of the PHENIX $\Delta G$ program, specifically, constraining $\Delta G$ at low-x.

        New COMPASS Results on Polarized Parton Distributions Inside the Nucleon
        A short review of the COMPASS results concerning gluon polarization inside the nucleon, DG/G, is given including two new measurements: Firstly, a DG/G determination in leading order and in three bin of the gluon momentum fraction x_g from asymmetries in high-p$_T$ hadron pair production for Q$^2>$1 (GeV/c)$^2$; secondly, a preliminary next-to-leading order analysis based on open charm production, i.e. D mesons decaying via various channels. The latter result is obtained from our combined proton and deuteron data. In addition the cross-section for the $D^*$ production is given and kinematic distribution of the $D^*$ are compared with the AROMA generator. Finally results for the LO flavor separation of the three lightest quark polarized parton distributions.

        Measurement of high-Q2 e+p neutral current cross sections at HERA and determination of the structure function xF3
        The cross sections for neutral current deep inelastic scattering in e+p collisions with a longitudinally polarised positron beam have been measured using the ZEUS detector at HERA. The single-differential cross-sections dsigma/dQ2, dsigma/dx and dsigma/dy and the double-differential cross sections in Q2 and x are measured in the kinematic region Q2 > 185 GeV2 for both positively and negatively polarised electron beams and for each polarisation state separately. The measurements are based on an integrated luminosity of 136 pb-1 taken in 2006 and 2007 at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV. The structure functions xF_3 and xF_3^{\gammaZ} are determined by combining the e+p results presented in this analysis with previously measured e-p neutral current data. The measured cross sections are compared to the predictions.

        Luminosity Measurement at HERA with Elastic QED Compton Events
        At HERA, deep inelastic scattering progresses have been studied in order to probe the fundamental forces predicted by the standard model and the structure of the proton. One of the most fundamental processes is the elastic production of photons, e p -> e p gamma. For the case where the momentum transfer at the proton vertex is small, but both the electron and the photon have significant transverse momentum, the process is referenced as elastic QED Compton scattering. This process has the feature that it may be calculated at high precision in the framework of perturbative QED, and experimental background from other processes, like deeply-virtual Compton scattering, is small. In this analysis, the rate of elastic QED Compton events together with the cross section predicted from QED in used to measure the integrated luminosity of H1 datasets. The results are compared to default measurements of the integrated luminosity using Bethe-Heitler events.

We consider Pomeron as an object with parton distribution function, evolving according to the next-to-leading order (NLO) DGLAP equations within the framework of the ‘Fixed Flavour Number Scheme’ (FFNS). Having performed a global fit analysis, we achieve a very good description of all available measurements by introducing a new set of quark distribution form for the Pomeron. We predict longitudinal and charm proton diffractive structure function as well. Our results are compared with other analysis from the literature.

        Evidence for breakdown of the DGLAP description in diffractive DIS at HERA
        HERA data on diffractive DIS show deviations from twist 2 DGLAP predictions below Q^2 5 GeV^2 at low x_P, which may reach up to 100%. These deviations are consistent with higher twists effects extracted from the saturation model. It is a first direct evidence for the higher twists in DIS. This finding affects determination of the diffractive parton densities that are used for the predictions at the LHC.

        Analysis of higher twists in DIS and diffractive DIS at HERA and its implications for the saturation model
        We present new results on determination of higher twist contributions in diffractive DIS and compare them to the inclusive DIS case. In both cases the framework for the estimates is provided by the saturation model. We discuss the methods of higher twist extraction from the saturation model and compare the results for DIS and DDIS. We point out a striking difference in higher twist importance between DIS and DDIS: at low Q2 the effects are minor in DIS and they are large in DDIS. Moreover a comparison to HERA data hints on a necessary improvement of higher twist treatment in the saturation model. We present a possible QCD explanation of both findings.

        The E-906/SeaQuest experiment at Fermilab will continue a series of Drell-Yan measurements to explore the antiquark structure of the nucleon and nuclei. To extend existing measurements to larger values of Bjorken-x, a 120 GeV proton beam extracted from Fermilab's main injector is used, resulting in a factor of 50 more luminosity than previous experiments and enabling access to values of x up to 0.9. An overview will be presented of the key physics goals of the E-906/SeaQuest collaboration. These include investigation of the dramatic dbar/ubar flavor asymmetry in the nucleon sea and its behavior at high x; study of the EMC effect in Drell-Yan scattering and the unexpected absence of any antiquark excess in existing data; and measurements of the angular dependence of the Drell-Yan process, sensitive to spin-orbit correlations within the nucleon.

        From Jet Counting to Jet Vetoes
        The properties of jets are used in many LHC physics searches. Higgs searches use jet vetoes and fixed recoil jet multiplicities. Searches for new physics particles require a careful distinction of decay jets from QCD jet radiation. We show that the exclusive number of jets at hadron colliders can be described with two simple patterns: staircase scaling and Poisson scaling. In photon plus jets production we can interpolate between the two patterns using simple kinematic cuts. The associated theoretical errors are well under control. We show how understanding the exclusive jet multiplicities significantly impacts Higgs searches and searches for supersymmetry at the LHC.

The inclusive jet measurements extend from 20 GeV to 1.5 TeV, and the dijet measurements cover a very wide mass range. Measurements based on tracking alone are sensitive only to the charged-particle content of the jet, but all accurate measurements down to low transverse momentum, where the onset of hard scattering can be studied as jets emerge from some scattering events. A wide range of QCD-based calculations is confronted with the data, ranging from soft physics models the high multiplicity partonic matrix elements and NLO QCD calculations matched to parton shower simulations, testing the understand of QCD in a new kinematic range.

        The production of a prompt photon in association with a heavy-quark (charm or bottom) jet is a versatile process that can be used to study the structure of the proton and the nucleus. This process is extremely sensitive to the heavy quark PDFs, and can thus directly probe for intrinsic charm or bottom contributions.

        Fully massive scheme for jet production in DIS
        We present the consistent treatment of heavy quarks in jet production processes in DIS at NLO accuracy. The method is based on the ACOT massive factorization scheme (Aivazis-Collins-Olness-Tung) which is already in use in global fits for PDFs. Extension of this method to jets faces the problem of infra-red singularities, which have to cancel between real and virtual corrections. Moreover, potential mass singularities have to be controlled in both contributions. To this end, we extended the dipole subtraction method (S. Catani, S. Dittmaier, M. H. Seymour, Z. Trocsanyi), which in its original form did not take into account QCD massive splittings in the initial state. We constructed relevant kinematics and dipole splitting functions together with their integrals. We partially adapted the method in MC program and checked against the known massive inclusive NLO results.

The b-jets are identified using either a lifetime-based method, where secondary decay vertices of b-hadrons in jets are reconstructed using information from the tracking detectors, or a muon-based method where the presence of a muon is used to identify semileptonic decays of b-hadrons inside jets. The inclusive b-jet cross-section is measured as a function of transverse momentum. The bbbar-dijet cross-section is measured as a function of the dijet invariant mass, the azimuthal angle difference between the two jets, and the angular variable chi in two dijet mass regions. The results are compared to next-to-leading-order QCD predictions. D*+/- meson production in jets is also measured. D*+/- mesons found in jets are fully reconstructed in the decay chain: D*+ -> D0pi+, D0 -> K-pi+, and its charge conjugate.

        Measurements of open heavy flavor production by PHENIX at RHIC
        Heavy flavor quarks are produced in the early stages of heavy ion collisions and serve as an important probe of the strongly interacting deconfined medium believed to be produced in these collisions at RHIC. Measuring observables such as Nuclear Modification Factor and Elliptic Flow for open heavy flavor production can help in quantifying medium effects. Measurement of heavy flavor production in p+p collision is an absolutely necessary baseline measurement for nuclear modification factor. On the other hand, measurements of heavy quark production in p+p collisions provides an important cross-check of pQCD calculations. PHENIX has a unique ability to measure single lepton spectra both at |eta|< 0.35 and at 1.4<|eta|<1.9 rapidity ranges, with its Central and Muon arms, respectively. Single leptons are used to tag the production of heavy flavor quarks via semileptonic decay of heavy flavor mesons (D,B). The most recent PHENIX single lepton measurements for different colliding ion systems will be presented and compared to the most recent available theoretical model predictions.

        TMD Theory Overview
        Transverse momentum dependent (TMD) distribution and fragmentation functions are described as Fourier transforms of matrix elements containing non-local combinations of quark and gluon fields. While the collinear functions are light-cone correlators in which the non-locality is restricted along the light-cone, the transverse momentum dependent functions are light-front correlators including a transverse (space-like) separation away from the light-cone. In the matrix elements the time-ordering is superfluous and they are parts of the full (squared) amplitudes that account for the connections to the hadrons (soft parts). The collinear (x-dependent) parton (quark or gluon) distribution functions (PDF’s) that appear in the parameterization of collinear leading-twist correlators are interpreted as momentum densities including polarized parton densities in polarized hadrons. They involve only spin-spin densities and they do not allow for a description of single-spin asymmetries in high-energy scattering processes at leading 1/Q order in the hard scale Q. TMD (x and pT-dependent) PDF’s that appear in the parameterization of TMD correlators include spin-spin as well as momentum-spin correlations and they are able to describe single-spin and azimuthal asymmetries, such as Sivers and Collins effects in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS), but there are many open issues on pT-factorization. Upon taking moments in pT (or taking Bessel weights) the correlators involve higher-twist operators, but evaluated at zero-momentum (gluonic pole matrix elements). They can be incorporated in a ‘generalized’ factorization scheme with specific gluonic pole factors such as the sign in SIDIS versus Drell-Yan, which can be traced back to having TMD’s with non-trivial process-dependent past- or future-pointing gauge links appearing in the light-front separated, non-local operator combinations.

        One-Hadron transverse spin asymmetries at COMPASS
        The quark content of the nucleon at twist-two level in the collinear case can be fully characterized by three independent distribution functions for each quark flavour: the unpolarized distribution function f1(x), the helicity distribution function g1(x) and the transverse spin distribution function h1(x), also called transversity. The measurements of single spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) on a transversely polarized target are an important part of the COMPASS physics program. By measuring azimuthal asymmetries in hadron production one can access both transversity - using the Collins fragmentation function - and the Sivers distribution function. The COMPASS collaboration has measured these asymmetries in the scattering of a 160 GeV/c polarized mu+ beam off a transversely polarized 6LiD (deuteron) target in the years 2002-2004 and off a transversely polarized NH3 (proton) target in 2007 and 2010. In this contribution we present the results from the 2010 data for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries.

For the first time these modulations were determined in a four-dimensional kinematic space for positively and negatively charged pions and kaons separately, as well as for unidentified hadrons.

        Uncertainties in Determining Parton Distributions at Large x: Results from the CJ Collaboration
        The results of a global next-to-leading order fit of parton distribution functions in which cuts on W and Q are relaxed, thereby including more data at high values of x, will be reported. Effects of target mass corrections (TMC), higher twist contributions, and nuclear corrections for deuterium data are significant in the large-x region. The leading twist parton distributions are found to be stable to TMC model variations as long as higher twist contributions are also included. Importantly, uncertainties in parton distribution functions (PDFs) at large x arising from nuclear effects in deuterium F2 structure function data are evaluated. Within this global analysis, the impact on the PDFs from uncertainties in the deuteron wave function at short distances and nucleon off-shell effects, the use of relativistic kinematics, as well as the use of less a restrictive parametrization of the d/u ratio, have been assessed. In particular the d-quark and gluon PDFs are found to vary significantly with the choice of nuclear model.

Prospects for new measurements sensitive to the d-quark and gluon distributions but insensitive to nuclear corrections will also be discussed.

        Central Exclusive Production in pp ̄ Collisions at CDF II
        We report central exclusive production results studied at the Run II Collider Detector at Fermilab with focus on our recently published paper on the first observation of exclusive γγ production in pp ̄ collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV at the Tevatron. In particular, starting from earlier studies by the CDF collaboration, we discuss exclusive dijet, dilepton, Z, J/Ψ and χc productions and finally our recent observation of exclusive diphoton production. Whereas the lepton pairs and Z are purely QED processes, the J/Ψ is produced by photo-production, mediated by photon-pomeron exchange (γ + IP). The double pomeron exchange producing the exclusive dijet, Charmonium and diphotons via quark-loop is of great interest looking towards the possibilities of finding an exclusive Higgs at the Large Hadron Collider (if it exists). The production mechanism for an exclusive Higgs is similar via a heavy quark-loop with no other particles produced.

We extend the MSSM analysis to new benchmark scenarios that are in agreement with the cold dark matter relic abundance and other precision measurements.

        High energy exclusive leptoproduction of the rho-meson: theory and phenomenology
        Exclusive leptoproduction of vector mesons has been the subject of recent significant progress, both theoretically and experimentally. In particular, the hard regime with a highly virtual photon exchange allows to separate a short distance dominated amplitude of hard subprocess from suitably defined hadronic objects. However, a consistent picture is still missing, in particular for contributions to the scattering amplitude beyond the leading power in the photon virtuality. We recently described the hard production of transversally polarized rho-meson, up to twist 3 accuracy, including 2- and 3- particles Fock-states, in the HERA kinematics of high center-of-mass energy. Furthermore, we here show how saturation effects could be included in our model. This is based on the dipole representation of the scattering amplitude in coordinate space, which we extend up to twist 3, based on our previous studies of the scattering amplitude in momentum space. We compare our model with H1 and ZEUS data for the ratios of helicity amplitudes T(gamma*T -> rhoT )/T(gamma*L -> rhoL) and T(gamma*T -> rhoL)/T(gamma*L -> rhoL) and get a good description of the data.

        The production of jets in association with a W or Z boson in proton-proton collisions at 7 TeV is an important process to understand in QCD. The cross section, differential in several kinematics variables, has been measured up to high jet multiplicities and compared to new higher-order QCD calculations. The ratio of (Z + a single jet)/(W + a single jet) can provide a very precise test of QCD and has also been measured. In addition, the cross sections for vector bosons produced with bottom jets, Z+b-jet and W+b-jet, have been measured and compared to NLO QCD calculations. Overall, the cross sections demonstrate the need for the inclusion of higher-multiplicity matrix elements in the calculations, even in cases where a parton shower simulation is present.

The data were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. For the top-antitop pair production, measurements are obtained from the study of the kinematic properties and of the b-tagging rates in final states for with either a charged lepton pair accompanied by additional jets and missing transverse momentum, and in final states with one charged lepton, three or more jets and missing transverse momentum. For the single top quark production the measurement is obtained from the final states with one charged lepton, at least two jets and missing transverse momentum, and studies of the relative contributions of different production mechanisms are also presented. Finally we present measurements of the forward-backward asymmetry in the top-antitop quark final states.

        Top quark physics in CDF
        The study of the dynamics of top-quark pair production in proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions plays an important role in the understanding of parton interactions at large Bjorken-x. It tests the assumptions of the standard model and of quantum chromodynamics at the electroweak scale and beyond. The CDF data set is an ideal sample for measuring observables sensitive to the dynamics of top-quark pair production, given the excellent understanding of detector performance and the unique proton-antiproton initial state. We present recent measurements of such observables from CDF. These include the direct measurement of the ratio R of the branching fraction of top-quark decaying to W + b-quark over the branching fraction of top-quark decaying to W + any quark flavor. The measurement uses data corresponding to 7.5/fb of integrated luminosity in the lepton+jets decay channel. The ratio R constrains the |V_tb| element of the CKM matrix. We also present a measurement of the spin correlation coefficient of the top-quark pair, which can be directly measured uniquely in the top-pair system thanks to the very short life time of the top-quark. This measurement uses data corresponding to 5.1/fb of integrated luminosity in the dilepton decay channel. Finally, we present a study of the top-quark pair production asymmetries in the lepton+jets channel using the full CDF Run II data set which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 8.7/fb. The study includes the measurement of the cross section differential in the top-pair rapidity difference, the measurement of the inclusive forward-backward asymmetry A_FB, as well as the measurement of A_FB as a function of the rapidity difference and of the invariant mass of the top-pair system. The production asymmetries are sensitive to the top-quark pair production mechanism, thus constraining quantum chromodynamics at higher order and testing for possible new physics.

        Global Analysis of Nuclear Parton Distributions
        We present a new global QCD analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions and their uncertainties. In addition to the most commonly analyzed data sets for deep inelastic scattering of charged leptons off nuclei and Drell-Yan di-lepton production, we include also measurements for neutrino nuclei scattering as well as inclusive pion production in deuteron gold collisions. The analysis is performed at next-to-leading order accuracy in perturbative QCD in a general mass variable flavor number scheme, adopting a current set of free nucleon parton distribution functions, defined accordingly, as reference. The emerging picture is one of consistency, where universal nuclear modification factors for each parton flavor reproduce the main features of all data without any significant tension among the different sets. We use the Hessian method to estimate the uncertainties of the obtained nuclear modification factors and examine critically their range of validity in view of the sparse kinematic coverage of the present data. We briefly present several applications of our nuclear parton densities in hard nuclear reactions at BNL-RHIC, CERN-LHC, and a future electron ion collider.

        Probing the Low-x Structure of the Nucleus with the PHENIX Detector
        One of the fundamental goals of the PHENIX experiment is to understand the structure of cold nuclear matter, since this serves as the initial state for heavy-ion collisions. Knowing the initial state is vital for interpreting measurements from heavy-ion collisions. Moreover, the structure of the cold nucleus by itself is interesting since it is a test-bed for our understanding of QCD. In particular there is the possibility of novel QCD effects such as gluon saturation at low-x in the nucleus. At RHIC we can probe the structure of cold nuclear matter using d+Au collisions. We will present measurements of forward di-hadron correlations and inclusive J/Psi production, which seem to show some interesting effects in the cold nucleus, especially as one probes down to Bjorken x of about $10^{-3}$ in the Au nucleus.

        Diffractive pQCD mechanisms of exclusive production of $b \bar b$ dijets and $W^+ W^-$ pairs in proton-proton collisions
        We discuss central exclusive production of $W^+W^-$ pairs in proton-proton collisions at LHC. Several observables related to this process are calculated. Predictions for the total cross section and differential distributions in rapidity and transverse momentum of $W^{\pm}$ and $WW$ invariant mass are presented. We show results for different polarization states of the final $W^{\pm}$ bosons. We discuss both $\gamma \gamma \to W^+ W^-$ mechanism as well as a new mechanism of exclusive diffractive production. The amplitude for the latter process is calculated in the Durham model used recently to estimate cross section for exclusive production of Higgs boson, gluon-gluon, $b \bar b$ dijets as well as for pairs of photons. Some results for those processes will be discussed briefly and compared to the CDF collaboration data. The amplitude for the $p p \to p p W^+ W^-$ process is expressed in terms of off-diagonal unintegrated gluon distribution functions. We compare the two (QED and QCD) types of contributions. The phase space integrated diffractive contribution when separated is only a small fraction of fb compared to 115.4 fb of the $\gamma \gamma$ contribution. The $\gamma \gamma$ contribution dominates at small four-momentum transfers squared in the proton lines as well as in a broad range of $W^+ W^-$ invariant masses. This opens a possibility of searches for anomalous four-boson $\gamma \gamma W^+ W^-$ coupling due to new physics beyond Standard Model. The example are Higgsless models. The presentation will be based mostly on our recent study. I will also show some published results on exclusive production of Higgs and dijets.

        Precision Polarized SIDIS Experiments in Hall-A at 12 GeV JLab
        One of the cleanest ways to access the Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) parton distribution functions of the nucleon is to measure single (SSA) and double spin asymmetries (DSA) in semi-inclusive DIS reactions using polarized nucleon targets. The Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade will provide a unique opportunity to perform such precision measurements and to map these multi-dimensional PDFs. In this talk, we will present our plans for performing these precision measurements in Hall-A using Large acceptance SoLID spectrometer and polarized proton and 3 He (neutron) targets. In particular, we will focus on two approved A-rated experiments using both longitudinally and transversely polarized 3 He targets, and a conditionally approved experiment with a transversely polarized proton target. The high luminosities from these targets and the large acceptance of the SoLID spectrometer will allow for a precise 4-dimensional (x, Q2 , z, PT ) mapping of SSA and DSA. The full azimuthal angular coverage is necessary to untangle various angular moments and thereby reduce the systematic uncertainties. These experiments will provide the most precise data to extract transversity, Sivers and Worm-gear distributions of u and d-quarks and provide comprehensive information on the correlation between quark angular momentum and the nucleon’s spin.

        Drell-Yan lepton pair production in the kt-factorization approach
        In the framework of the kt-factorization approach, the production of unpolarized Drell-Yan lepton pair at high energies is studied. The consideration is based on the O(alpha) and $O(alpha alpha_s) off-shell partonic matrix elements with virtual photon and Z boson exchange. The calculations include leptonic decays of Z bosons with full spin correlations as well as gamma - Z interference. The unintegrated parton densities in a proton are determined by the Kimber-Martin-Ryskin prescription. Our numerical predictions are compared with the data taken by the D0, CDF and CMS collaborations at the Tevatron and LHC energies. Special attention is put on the specific angular distributions measured very recently by the CDF collaboration for the first time.

Large logarithms are resummed using soft-collinear effective theory. The collinear anomaly generates a non-perturbative scale q^∗, which protects the processes from receiving large long-distance hadronic contributions. A numerical comparison of our predictions with data on the transverse-momentum distribution in Z-boson production at the Tevatron and LHC is given.

        Quark and Gluon Tagging at the LHC
        Distinguishing light-quark jets from gluon jets on an event-by-event basis could significantly enhance the reach for many new physics searches at the Large Hadron Collider. Through an exhaustive search of existing and novel jet substructure observables, we find that a multivariate approach can filter out over 95% of the gluon jets while keeping more than half of the light-quark jets. Moreover, a combination of two simple variables, the charge track multiplicity and the p_T-weighted linear radial moment (girth), can achieve similar results. I will discuss applications and address theoretical issues in the definitions of quark and gluon jets.

        Normalised Multi-jet Cross Sections using Regularised Unfolding and Extractions of alpha_s(M_Z) in Deep-Inelastic Scattering at high Q^2 at HERA (H1)
        New results on normalised inclusive jet, di-jet and trijet differential cross sections in neutral current deep-inelastic ep scattering (DIS) based on a regularised unfolding procedure are presented. Detector effects like acceptance and migrations as well as statistical correlations between the multi-jets and the inclusive DIS events are taken into account in this procedure. The DIS phase space of this measurement with the H1 detector is given by the virtuality of the exchanged boson (gamma*,Z^0) 150 < Q^2 < 15000 GeV^2 and the inelasticity of the interaction 0.2 < y < 0.7. The jets are reconstructed in the Breit frame of reference using the k_t jet algorithm. In all cases the jet pseudorapidities in the laboratory frame are required to be in the range -1.0 < eta_lab < 2.5. For inclusive jets the transverse momenta in the Breit frame are 7 < P_T < 50 GeV. The di-jet and tri-jet phase space are defined by requiring 5 < P_T,i < 50 GeV, and the invariant mass of the two leading jets M_1,2 > 16 GeV. Compared to a previously published result on normalised multi-jet cross sections, the new features are an extended range in jet pseudorapidity, an improved hadronic energy scale uncertainty of 1% and the adoption of a regularised unfolding procedure. The unfolded normalised jet cross sections are compared to QCD calculations at NLO and values for the strong coupling alpha_s(M_Z) are extracted.

        Inclusive-Jet Photoproduction at HERA
        Differential inclusive-jet cross sections have been measured in photoproduction for boson virtualities Q2 < 1 GeV2 with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 300 pb-1. Jets were identified in the laboratory using the kt cluster algorithm in the longitudinally inclusive mode. Cross sections are presented as functions of the jet pseudorapidity, etajet,and the jet transverse energy, Etjet. In addition, measurements of double-differential inclusive-jet cross sections are presented as functions of Etjet in different regions of etajet. These cross sections have the potential to constrain the gluon density in the proton and the photon when included as input to fits to extract the proton parton distribution functions. Next-to-leading-order QCD calculations give a good description of the measurements. A value of alphas(Mz) has been extracted from the measurements. The energy-scale dependence of the coupling has also been determined.

The calculation builds on existing results for the radiative corrections to heavy-quark plus one jet production and uses the POWHEG BOX for the interface to the parton shower programs PYTHIA or HERWIG.

We show predictions obtained by PowHel, a computing framework based upon the POWHEG-BOX program with input obtained from HELAC-NLO. The POWHEG-BOX generates event files according to the Les-Houches accord, and uses the POWHEG matching formalism to further evolve these events to the hadron level ready for use in any experimental analysis. We discuss the sensitivities of our predictions to the choice of the Shower Monte Carlo code (PYTHIA vs. HERWIG). We show examples of how the choice of different experimental cuts and/or heavy particle reconstruction strategies can affect the predictions and help disentangle our signals from important backgrounds, also involving top-quark production and decay.

        Recent STAR results and future prospects of the W boson program at RHIC at BNL
        The STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory is carrying out a spin physics program in high-energy polarized proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200\,$GeV and $\sqrt{s}=500\,$GeV to gain a deeper insight into the spin structure and dynamics of the proton. The completion of the first $\sqrt{s}=500\,$GeV polarized proton run in 2009 opened a new era of spin-flavor structure measurements from $W^{-(+)}$ boson production. $W^{-(+)}$ bosons are produced in $\bar{u}+d\,(\bar{d}+u)$ collisions and can be detected through their leptonic decays, $e^{-}+\bar{\nu}_{e}\;(e^{+}+\nu_{e})$, where only the respective charged lepton is measured. The discrimination of $\bar{u}+d\;(\bar{d}+u)$ quark combinations requires distinguishing between high $p_{T}$ $e^{-(+)}$ through their opposite charge sign, which in turn requires precise tracking information. Recent published STAR results on the first measurement of $W^{-}/W^{+}$ and $Z$ boson production will be shown. The STAR experiment has recently started the installation of the Forward GEM Tracker to enhance the charge separation of high $p_{T}$ $e^{-(+)}$ at forward pseudorapidities and will begin the commissioning of this new tracking system during the upcoming 2012 running period. The status of the Forward GEM Tracker along with a discussion of future prospects will be presented.

        NNPDF determination of polarized parton distributions of the nucleon at NLO
        We present a preliminary determination of a set of polarized parton distributions of the nucleon, at next-to-leading order, from a global set of deep-inelastic scattering data. The determination is based on the NNPDF methodology: a Monte Carlo sampling with neural networks used as unbiased interpolants. This method, which has already been applied to a determination of unpolarized parton distributions, is designed to provide a faithful and statistically sound representation of the uncertainty on parton distributions. We discuss the general NNPDF procedure to parton fitting, focusing on the algorithm used to determine the optimal fit. We also present a preliminary set of polarized PDFs, compared to other parton extractions recently obtained by other collaborations. In particular, we show that "traditional" fits tend to underestimate the PDF uncertainty, particularly for the gluon, which is basically unconstrained by inclusive DIS data.

        $W$ Physics in Polarized Proton-Proton Collisions at PHENIX
        A major direction of the physics program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is to explore the origin of proton spin structure. Parity violating single spin asymmetries, $A_L$, for $W$-bosons in longitudinally polarized $p + p$ collisions at a center of mass energy of $\sqrt{s}$ = 500 GeV will give access to the flavor separated quark and anti-quark polarization distributions for up- and down-quarks in the proton. The PHENIX collaboration has measured $A_L$ for electrons from $W$-decay in the central rapidity region, $-0.35 < \eta < 0.35$ based on a data sample taken in 2009. A second data sample taken in 2011 is being used to measure $A_L$ for $W$-decays into muons with two PHENIX forward muon spectrometers covering $1.2 < |\eta| < 2.4$. Cross sections for $W^\pm$-boson production at central rapidity and the corresponding single spin asymmetries will be presented. The cross sections will be compared with similar measurements at LHC. The upgrade effort directed at $W$-physics in the muon spectrometers just has been completed. The new instrumentation will be briefly described and the the status of the $W$-analysis in the PHENIX muon spectrometers will be discussed.

        The DIS structure functions are expressed, in a rigorous way, as correlation functions in a quantum field theory containing a parameter r. It is shown that low x physics corresponds to the theory in the limit of r going to zero where the theory develops a large correlation length. This indicates critical behaviour. The data on F2 are analysed in a geometric way and values for the critical indices are extracted.

        The Recent F_L Measurement from HERA and the Dipole Model
        From the new measurement of F_L at HERA we derive fixed-Q^2 averages <F_L/F_2>. We compare these with bounds which are rigorous in the framework of the standard dipole picture. The bounds are sharpened by including information on the charm structure function F_2^(c). Within the experimental errors the bounds are respected by the data. But for 3.5 GeV^2 <= Q^2 <= 20 GeV^2 the central values of the data are close to and in some cases even above the bounds. Data on F_L/F_2 significantly exceeding the bounds would rule out the standard dipole picture at these kinematic points. We discuss, furthermore, what can be learned from data respecting the bounds but coming close to them.

        Measurement of Photon Production in the Very Forward Direction in Deep-Inelastic Scattering at HERA [H1]
        The production of photons at very small angles with respect to the proton beam direction is studied in deep-inelastic positron-proton scattering at HERA. The data are taken with the H1 detector in the years 2006 and 2007 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of $126 \mathrm{pb}^{-1}$. The analysis covers the range of negative four momentum transfer squared at the positron vertex $6<Q^2<100$ GeV$^2$ and inelasticity $0.05<y<0.6$. Cross sections are measured for the most energetic photon with pseudorapidity $\eta>7.9$ as a function of its transverse momentum $p_T^{lead}$ and longitudinal momentum fraction of the incoming proton $x_L^{lead}$. In addition, the cross sections are studied as a function of the sum of the longitudinal momentum fraction $x_L^{sum}$ of all photons in the pseudorapidity range $\eta>7.9$. The cross sections are normalised to the inclusive deep-inelastic scattering cross section and compared to the predictions of models of deep-inelastic scattering and models of the hadronic interactions of high energy cosmic rays.

        Heavy Quark Production in the ACOT Scheme at NNLO and N3LO
        We analyze the properties of the ACOT scheme for heavy quark production and make use of the MS-bar massless results at NNLO and N3LO for the structure functions F2 and FL in neutral current deep-inelastic scattering to estimate the higher order corrections. For this purpose we decouple the heavy quark mass entering the phase space from the one entering the dynamics of the short distance cross section. We show numerically that the phase space mass is generally more important. Therefore, the dominant heavy quark mass effects at higher orders can be taken into account using the massless Wilson coefficients together with an appropriate slow-rescaling prescription implementing the phase space constraints. Combining the exact ACOT scheme at NLO with these expressions should provide a good approximation to the missing full calculation in the ACOT scheme at NNLO and N3LO.

The remaining theoretical uncertainties of this approximation are negligible except in a region of small-$x$ and low $Q2$ and we illustrate the improvement in precision predictions for heavy-quark DIS.

        PHENIX Upgrade Plans for the Next Decade
        During 12 years of operations, PHENIX has measured the gluon helicity structure of the proton, probed the proton transverse spin structure, studied effects in cold nuclear matter, discovered a strongly coupled QGP and has studied many of its basic properties. In parallel with ongoing luminosity upgrades at RHIC, PHENIX is in the process of planning and commissioning a series of upgrades in order to systematically expand its physics capabilities, allowing measurement of the sea quark helicity distributions, the low x gluon distribution in heavy nuclei and charm and bottom quark production in Heavy Ion collisions. PHENIX is also planning a larger upgrade for the next decade to answer many of the questions spurred by our discoveries during the last decade. With increased acceptance and improved electromagnetic and new hadronic calorimetry in the central region, we will advance understanding of the sQGP by studying jet energy loss. We also plan to upgrade our forward physics detector with additional calorimetry and tracking acceptance. This will allow for measurements of the Sivers effect in Drell-Yan, which can test our understanding of QCD factorization. The larger acceptance will improve our access to low x distributions in heavy nuclei, and also enable measurements of jets in the forward direction, which will allow for a more systematic approach to understanding the large transverse spin measurements seen at RHIC.

        Accelerator Design of High Luminosity Electron-Hadron Collider eRHIC
        The accelerator design of future high-energy high-luminosity electron-hadron collider at RHIC called eRHIC is presented. We plan adding energy recovery linacs to accelerate the electron beam to 20 (potentially 30) GeV and to collide the electrons with hadrons in RHIC. The center-of-mass energy of eRHIC will range from 30 to 200 GeV. The luminosity exceeding 10^34 cm^-2 s^-1 can be achieved in eRHIC using the low-beta interaction region with a 10 mrad crab crossing. The important eRHIC R&D items include the high-current polarized electron source, the coherent electron cooling and the compact magnets for re-circulating passes. A natural staging scenario is based on step-by-step increases of the electron beam energy by building-up of eRHIC's SRF linacs.

        Insights into the nucleon spin from lattice QCD
        Flavour singlet contributions to the nucleon spin are elusive due to the fact that they cannot be determined directly in experiment but require extrapolations to the small x region. Direct calculations of these contributions are possible using Lattice QCD, however, they pose a significant computational challenge due to the presence of disconnected quark line diagrams. I report on recent progress in determining these sea quark contributions on the lattice.

        Fragmentation functions at Belle
        Fragmentation functions (FFs) describe the formation of final state particles from a partonic initial state. Precise knowledge of these functions is a key ingredient in accessing quantities such as the nucleon spin structure in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering and proton proton collisions. However, fragmentation functions can currently not be determined from first principles Quantum Chromodynamics and have to be extracted from experimental data. The Belle experiment at KEK, Japan, provides a large data sample for high precision measurements of quantities allowing for first-time or more precise extractions of fragmentation functions. Completed and ongoing analyses for extractions of spin-independent (unpolarized FFs) as well as spin-dependent fragmentation functions (Collins and Interference FFs) at Belle will be presented.

        Next-to-leading and resummed BFKL evolution with saturation boundary
        We investigate the effects of the saturation boundary on small-x evolution at the next-to-leading order accuracy and beyond. We demonstrate that the instabilities of the next-to-leading order BFKL evolution are not cured by the presence of the nonlinear saturation effects, and a resummation of the higher order corrections is therefore needed for the nonlinear evolution. The renormalization group improved resummed equation in the presence of the saturation boundary is investigated, and the corresponding saturation scale is extracted. A significant reduction of the saturation scale is found, and we observe that the onset of the saturation corrections is delayed to higher rapidities. This seems to be related to the characteristic feature of the resummed splitting function which at moderately small values of x possesses a minimum.

We also present the real NLO corrections to the quark induced Mueller-Tang jet vertex. Together with the already know virtual corrections it will allow for the construction of the complete NLO Mueller-Tang jet impact factor which is the only missing element for a complete NLO BFKL description of jet events with rapidity gap.

        Resummation of large-x and small-x double logarithms in DIS and semi-inclusive e+e- annihilation
        Recently a method has been developed to extend the resummation of large-x double logarithms in inclusive DIS and semi-inclusive e^+e^- annihilation (SIA) to terms and quantities not addressed by the soft-gluon exponentiation. The N^nLL (leading log, next-to-leading log etc) resummation is based on N^nLO fixed-order results, the large-x structure of DIS and SIA in dimensional regularization and the all-order factorization of mass singularities. The same formalism can be applied to the dominant x-1 ln^{2*n-a-n_0} x terms in SIA splitting functions and coefficient functions and the (in the flavour-singlet case) subdominant x0 ln^{2*n-a-n_0} x contributions to (most of) their DIS counterparts. The talk addresses the theoretical basics of these resummations and presents the main numerical results which, despite all formal similarities, are qualitatively different for DIS and SIA.

        The STAR experiment is one of the flagship experiments at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider at Brookhaven Lab. Since starting to take data at the turn of the century, STAR’s large acceptance and measurement capabilities have proved to be vital in terms of characterising the QGP soup produced in heavy-ion collisions and heading towards a measurement of the proton spin in polarised p+p collisions. This has only been achieved through the constant upgrade and enhancement of detectors and components every year, one of many examples being the recordable DAQ rate increasing by a factor of 10^3 since the first year. Although many measurements have been performed in the last decade, much remains to be done. In this presentation I will outline the proposed measurements and corresponding detector upgrades over the next decade in p+p, p+A and A+A physics as well as STAR’s role in the transition of RHIC to an eRHIC accelerator complex.

        Single and Double Spin Asymmetry Measurements in Semi-Inclusive and Inclusive DIS on Polarized He-3
        Jefferson Lab experiment E06-010 measured the target-single spin (SSA) and double spin asymmetries (DSA) in semi-inclusive deep inelastic pion electroproduction on a transversely polarized He-3 target. The measured asymmetry (A_UT) is sensitive to the nucleon transversity and Sivers distribution functions, whereas the measured A_LT asymmetry is related to the transverse momentum dependent PDF g_1T. The kinematics were chosen to be in the valence quark region with x ~ 0.16-0.35 and Q^2 ~ 1.4-2.7 GeV^2. The Collins moment, which is sensitive to transversity, the Sivers and A_LT moments, which are sensitive to the orbital motion of the quarks, were extracted using the azimuthal angular dependence of the measured asymmetries. These data, when combined with the data from other experiments on transversely polarized proton and deuteron targets, will help in extracting the nucleon transverse momentum dependent distribution functions via a global analysis. These semi-inclusive results will be presented and discussed along with the preliminary results for the inclusive single spin asymmetries.

        Quantitative constraints on the gluon distribution function in the proton from collider isolated-photon data
        The impact of isolated-photon data from proton-(anti)proton collisions at RHIC, SppbarS, Tevatron and LHC energies, on the parton distribution functions of the proton is studied using a recently developed Bayesian reweighting method. The impact on the gluon density of the 35 existing isolated-gamma measurements is quantified using next-to-leading order (NLO) perturbative QCD calculations complemented with the NNPDF2.1 parton densities. The NLO predictions are found to describe well most of the datasets from 200 GeV up to 7 TeV centre-of-mass energies. The isolated-photon spectra recently measured at the LHC are precise enough to constrain the gluon distribution and lead to a moderate reduction (up to 20%) of its uncertainties around fractional momenta x~0.02. As a particular case, we show that the improved gluon density reduces the PDF uncertainty for the Higgs boson production cross section in the gluon-fusion channel by more than 20% at the LHC. We conclude that present and future isolated-photon measurements constitute an interesting addition to coming global PDF analyses.

        Spin structure of the "forward" nucleon charge-exchange reaction n + p ---> p + n and the deuteron charge-exchange breakup
        The structure of the nucleon charge-exchange process n + p --> p + n is investigated basing on the isotopic invariance of the nucleon-nucleon scattering. Using the operator of permutation of the spin projections of the neutron and proton, the connection between the spin matrices, describing the amplitude of the nucleon charge-exchange process at zero angle and the amplitude of neutron elastic scattering on the proton in the "backward" direction, has been considered. Due to the optical theorem, the spin-independent part of the differential cross-section of the process n + p --> p + n at zero angle for unpolarized particles is expressed through the difference of total cross-sections of unpolarized proton-proton and neutron-proton scattering. Meantime, the spin-dependent part of this cross-section is proportional to the differential cross-section of the deuteron charge-exchange breakup d + p --> (pp) + n at zero angle at the deuteron momentum {\bf k}_d = 2{\bf k}_n ( {\bf k}_n is the initial neutron momentum ). Analysis shows that, assuming the real part of the spin-independent term of the "forward" amplitude of the process n + p --> p + n to be smaller or of the same order as compared with the imaginary part, in the wide range of neutron laboratory momenta k_n > 700 MeV/c the main contribution into the differential cross-section of the process n + p --> p + n at zero angle is provided namely by the spin-dependent term .

        Vector Meson Production and DVCS at CLAS and CLAS12
        Generalised Parton Distributions (GPDs) offer an insight into the three-dimensional structure of the nucleon and its internal dynamics, relating the transverse position of quarks to their longitudinal momentum. Two effective means of accessing GPDs are Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) and Meson Production (DVMP), in which a high energy electron scatters from a single quark in the nucleon and, respectively, a real photon or meson is produced as a result. Jefferson Laboratory (JLab), USA, is ideally suited for measuring these processes and a very active experimental programme has been underway in the recent years, making use of the lab's continuous electron beam up to 6 GeV in energy and its large angle spectrometer CLAS. In the future, a vast, new, as-yet unprobed kinematic region will become experimentally accessible when the current upgrade of the JLab accelerator to operate at a maximum energy of 12 GeV is completed in a few years. It is being complemented by the construction of a new suite of detectors, CLAS12, a number of them optimised specifically for exclusive reconstruction of DVCS and DVMP in the new kinematic region. We present a selection of recent results of DVCS and DVMP measurements using CLAS and introduce the exciting experimental programme planned for the future with CLAS12.

        New results for the transverse target spin azimuthal asymmetry $A_{UT}^{\sin(\phi-\phi_S})$ for hard exclusive $\rho^0$-meson production on a transversely polarised NH$_3$ target will be presented. The measurement was performed in 2007 and 2010 with the COMPASS detector using the 160\,GeV/$c$ muon beam of the SPS at CERN. The asymmetry is sensitive to the nucleon helicity-flip generalised parton distributions $E^q$, which are related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks in the nucleon. The DVCS program of the future COMPASS-II experiment, dedicated to investigate the nucleon structure through Generalised Parton Distributions is presented as well. The high energy muon beam from CERN SPS allows to measure these processes in a wide and up to now uncovered range in Bjorken $x$ and $Q^2$. The availability of muon beams with opposite charges and polarisations provides unique possibilities to access the GPDs.

        Z' production in an extended MSSM
        Searching for heavy neutral gauge bosons Z', predicted in extensions of the Standard Model based on a U(1)' gauge symmetry, is among the main new physics investigations undertaken by the experiments at the Tevatron and at the Large Hadron Collider. I will discuss study Z' phenomenology at hadron colliders according to several U(1)'-based models and in the Sequential Standard Model. In particular, as far as its decay is concerned, we shall include possible Z' decays into supersymmetric particles, besides the Standard Model modes so far investigated. Results on branching ratios and cross sections will be presented, as a function of the MSSM and U(1)' parameters, which will be varied within suitable ranges. Special attention will be paid to the decay into chargino, neutralino and charged-slepton pairs and gauge the feasibility to discover supersymmetry through this channel at the LHC.

        Measurements of dibosons with the ATLAS detector and associated constraints on new physics
        Diboson cross sections have been measure for all combinations of W,Z and isolated photons. The cross sections are measured in kinematic regions defined by the decay kinematics, in some cases including vetoes on additional jets. The measurements are also extrapolated to the full phase space using theoretical calculations of the acceptance, and are additionally used to place contsraints on triple-gauge boson couplings.

These include precise measurements of W and Z production in association with a photon and of WW production, WZ and ZZ productions at the LHC. The leptonic decay modes of the W and Z bosons are used. The results are interpreted in terms of constraints on anomalous triple gauge couplings.

        Elastic Z0 production at HERA
        A search for events ep-> ep Z0 has been performed in ep collisions at HERA using the ZEUS detector. The search is based on the entire HERA-I and HERA-II data set, amounting to 0.49 fb-1 of integrated luminosity. The Z0 was searched in the di-jet decay mode with elastic condition defined by etamax < 3, where etamax is defined as the pseudorapidity of the energy deposit in the calorimeter closest to the proton beam direction. A di-jet mass peak is observed at the Z0 mass and the number of signal events is extracted from a fit to the mass spectrum. The elastic Z0 production cross section is determined and compared to the SM prediction.

        An eRHIC Detector: Design Consideration and its Realization by Means of Detector R&D
        eRHIC is a proposed high luminosity, polarized Electron Ion Collider (EIC), which would make use of the existing RHIC infrastructure. eRHIC is a triple IP collider, with the possibility of using the two existing, but upgraded IP detectors and a dedicated eRHIC detector. A detector has to be designed that can make use of present knowledge and experience gained from the HERA detectors, but has to be adapted such that it is able to cope with the EIC physics program. This presentation will describe the eRHIC detector design and its IR as well the presently ongoing R&D activities for making technology choices towards such a detector.

        Pion and Kaon multiplicities from muon-deuteron deep inelastic scattering at COMPASS
        Fragmentation functions, which turn partons into non-perturbative hadronic bound states in hard-scattering reactions, play a very important role in our understanding of the proton structure. Currently, our knowledge of fragmentation functions originates mainly from existing global QCD analyses which are mostly based on inclusive measurements in electron-positron annihilation process. While the latter mainly fixes the flavour singlet combinations of fragmentation functions, semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering gives access to the flavour structure of FFs via hadron multiplicities. The COMPASS collaboration has recently measured pion and kaon multiplicities, in different combinations of bins in x, z and Q2, using 160 GeV/c muons off deuteron target. This measurement makes an experimental contribution for a deeper understanding on the fragmentation process.

They are presented for pions (π+, π-), kaons (K+, K-), protons and anti-protons as a function of the virtual photon energy ν, its virtuality Q2, the fractional hadron energy z and the transverse hadron momentum pt with respect to the direction of the virtual photon. Dependences are presented in a two-dimensional representation, in the form of detailed binning over one variable and three slices over the other variable. These results may help to understand some aspects of the hadronization process.

        Scaled Momentum Distributions for K^0_s and Lambda/anti-Lambda in DIS at HER
        Scaled momentum distributions for the strange hadrons K0s and Lambda/Lambdabar were measured in deep inelastic ep scattering with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 330 pb-1. The evolution of these distributions with the photon virtuality, Q2, was studied in the kinematic region 10 < Q2 < 40000 GeV2 and 0.001 < x < 0.75, where x is the Bjorken scaling variable. Clear scaling violations are observed. Predictions based on different approaches to fragmentation were compared to the measurements. Tuned leading-logarithm parton-shower Monte Carlo calculations interfaced to the Lund string fragmentation model describe the data reasonably well in the whole range measured. Next-to-leading-order QCD calculations based on fragmentation functions, FFs, extracted from e+e- data alone, fail to describe the measurements. The calculations based on FFs extracted from a global analysis including e+e-, ep and pp data give an improved description. The measurements presented in this paper have the potential to further constrain the FFs of quarks, anti-quarks and gluons yielding K0s and Lambda/Lambdabar strange hadrons.

        On the pair correlations of neutral K, D, B and B_s mesons with close momenta produced in inclusive multiparticle processes
        The phenomenological structure of inclusive cross sections of the production of two neutral K mesons in hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions is investigated taking into account the strangeness conservation in strong and electromagnetic interactions. Relations describing the dependence of the correlations of two short-lived and two long-lived neutral kaons $K^0_S K^0_S$, $K^0_L K^0_L$ and the correlations of "mixed" pairs $K^0_S K^0_L$ at small relative momenta upon the space-time parameters of the generation region of $K^0$ and $\bar{K}^0$ mesons have been obtained. These relations involve the contributions of Bose-statistics and S-wave strong final-state interaction of two $K^0$ ( $\bar{K}^0$ ) mesons as well as of a $K^0$ meson with a $\bar{K}^0$ meson, and also the contribution of transitions $K^+ K^- --> K^0 \bar{K}^0$, and they depend upon the relative fractions of produced pairs $K^0 K^0$, $\bar{K}^0\bar{K}^0$ and $K^0\bar{K}^0$. It is shown that under the strangeness conservation the correlation functions of the pairs $K^0_S K^0_S$ and $K^0_L K^0_L$, produced in the same inclusive process, coincide, and the difference between the correlation functions of the pairs $K^0_S K^0_S$ and $K^0_S K^0_L$ is conditioned by the production of the pairs of non-identical neutral kaons $K^0 \bar{K}^0$. Analogous correlations for the pairs of neutral heavy mesons $D^0$, $B^0$ and $B_s^0$, generated in multiple processes with the charm (beauty) conservation, are analyzed, and differences from the case of neutral K mesons are discussed .

The notorious CDF $J/\psi$ polarization anomaly familiar from leading-order analyses persists at the quantum level, while the situation looks promising for the LHC.

        Charmonium production in pp collisions with ALICE
        Due to their large mass, heavy quark pairs are considered to be produced in the first instants of the collision in hard scatterings of partons which can be described perturbatively. However, the bound states of these pairs are produced via soft non-perturbative processes. The interplay between the perturbative and non-perturbative processes involved in quarkonium production makes this field a very important testing ground for QCD. At the LHC, the special setup of the ALICE experiment allows the study of charmonium production in pp collisions down to zero transverse momentum in a large rapidity range, $|y|<0.9$ and $2.5

        J/psi Photoproduction in ultra-peripheral Au+Au collisions measured by RHIC-PHENIX.
        Title:J/psi Photoproduction in ultra-peripheral Au+Au collisions measured by RHIC-PHENIX. Ultra-peripheral collisions are heavy-ion collisions with impact parameter larger than twice the nuclear radius. Since there is no nuclear overlap, strong interactions cannot occur and ions interact through photon-ion (coherent), photon-nucleus (incoherent), and photon photon collisions. Measurement of vector meson photo production is a sensitive probe of gluon distribution in nuclei. At RHIC energy, measurement of J$/\psi$ photo production corresponds to x $\cong$ 0.015 and Q$^{2}$ =2.5 $GeV/c^2$. In the kinematic region, nuclear shadowing plays an important role and that still have large uncertainty. PHENIX has the capability of measuring J$/\psi$'s via their dielectron decays at mid-rapidity ($|y|<0.35$) and dimuon decays at forward (1.2$<|y|<$2.2) rapidity. PHENIX published J$/\psi$ photo production cross section at mid-rapidity in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 GeV in the 2004 dataset [1] (add reference in the end). The measured cross section was found to be consistent with theoretical calculations within its statistical error. PHENIX collected higher statistics Au+Au collisions datasets in 2007 and 2010 that allow a more precise measurement over a wider rapidity range. In this talk I will present present new preliminary results for the integrated and differential cross section of UPC J$/\psi$ at central and forward rapidity.

        W/Z/DY + jet as a test of the NLO BFKL kernel
        We study W/Z/DY + jet events where the W/Z/DY boson is produced in the forward direction of one of the colliding protons and a jet is produced in the forward direction of the second proton. The resulting large rapidity difference between the final states then opens up the phase space for BFKL evolution which we would like to study in more detail. As a by-product of our study, we also provide an analytic expression for the high energy re-summed exclusive partonic W/Z + n jet cross-section in moment space. To construct the BFKL re-summed cross-section we determine an analytic expression for the exclusive W/Z/DY impact factor in (gamma, n) space which is combined with BFKL Green's function and jet impact factor. In particular, both impact factors are determined for non-zero conformal spin and allow therefore for the study of angular correlations. First numerical results for a number of observables which allow to isolate and test BFKL evolution are presented.

        Production of Z and W in association with heavy quarks at CMS
        The mechanism of production of heavy-flavoured mesons, containing b or c quarks, in association with vector bosons, W or Z, in the Standard Model is only partially understood. The study of events with one or two well-identified and isolated leptons accompanied by b-jets or secondary vertices is therefore crucial to refine the theoretical calculations in perturbative QCD, as well as validate associated Monte Carlo techniques. The deep understanding of these processes is furthermore required by Higgs and BSM analyses with similar final states. Using the LHC proton-proton collision data collected in 2010 and 2011 at a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV by the CMS detector, preliminary measurements of the Z+b(b) cross sections and angular correlations are presented. Finally, the study of the W+c production rate with respect to the W charge and W+light jets rates allows to probe the strange quark content of the proton. These results are also presented.

The two-pion invariant-mass distribution is interpreted in terms of the pion electromagnetic form factor, |F(M(pipi)|, assuming that the studied mass range includes the contributions of the rho, rho' and rho'' vector-meson states. The masses and widths of the resonances were obtained and the Q2 dependence of the cross-section ratios sigma(rho'->pipi)\sigma(rho) and sigma(rho''->pipi)/sigma(rho) was extracted.

        New determination of the nonperturbative form factor in QCD transverse-momentum resummation for vector boson production
        In the conventional b_* model for the Collins–Soper–Sterman resummation, the resummed form factor is accompanied by the nonperturbative gaussian form factor, and it is known that the nonperturbative parameter associated with the latter exhibits the strong dependence on the logarithm of the vector boson invariant mass. On the other hand, an another approach to treat the impact parameter (b space) transform in the resummation formalism has been developed as the ``minimal prescription (MP)'' based on an analytic continuation procedure. By contrast to the b_* approach, the MP has advantages that it leaves unchanged the perturbative expansion to any (and arbitrarily-high) fixed order in \alpha_s and it does not require any infrared cut-off to avoid the Landau pole in the b-space integration. In the framework of the MP, however, the behavior of the corresponding nonperturbative form factor as a function of the vector boson invariant mass has been unknown. In this work, we present a first systematic study of the nonperturbative form factor associated with the resummed form factor in the MP. The matching of the b-space resummation formulas between the MP and the b_* model indicates that the nonperturbative form factor in the MP has the milder dependence on the vector boson invariant mass than that in the b_* model . To clarify this point quantitatively, we perform a global fit of the nonperturbative form factor in the MP resummation at the next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy, with the Z boson production data at the Tevatron and the low energy Drell-Yan data. We obtain good description of the transverse momentum distribution of vector bosons using a gaussian form of the nonperturbative form factor and find the weak dependence of the corresponding nonperturbative parameter on the vector boson invariant mass, which in turn allows an interpretation as arising from the intrinsic transverse momentum of partons inside the proton.

        We study coherence effects on the medium-induced soft gluon radiation off an ''asymptotic quark " traversing a hot and dense QCD medium. The transverse momentum spectrum of the emitted gluon is computed at first order in opacity expansion. The interference effects between the initial and final state radiation modify the soft gluon radiation when a finite angle between the initial and final quarks is considered. The spectrum presents a soft divergence. We comment on possible implications on observables in heavy ion collisions which are sensitive to the initial state radiation.

        Studies of jet shapes and substructure with ATLAS
        The internal structure of jets produced in proton-proton collisions at 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy provides a direct test of QCD calculations of gluon and quark radiation, as well as having sensitivity to hadronisation and underlying event. The transverse energy distribution around the jet core has been measured, as well as the fragmentation of a jet into charged particles. Jet shapes - including the jet mass - and jet substructure have the potential to identify jets coming from massive, boosted particles decaying hadronically. Techniques have also been developed for reducing the sensitivity of jet physics to soft QCD and to multiple proton-proton collisions. A selection of such variables is also measured and compared to a range QCD calculations and phenomenological models.

        QCD resummation for jet-mass distributions
        We study the jet-mass distribution for jets produced in hadron-hadron collision in QCD. In order to obtain reliable phenomenological results we resum to all-order in perturbation theory those contributions coming from collinear and soft gluons. Beyond the leading-logarithmic accuracy the resummation is made more complicated by the presence of non-global logarithms and logarithms related to the choice of the jet-algorithm. We apply our calculation to the interesting case of the jet-mass in Z+jet events, which is of great phenomenological interest for boosted Higgs.

        Boosted hadronically decaying tops in new physics searches
        Top momentum reconstruction often plays an important role for new physics signal reconstruction at the LHC. In principle for a hadronically decaying top, it is possible to reconstruct its momentum fully but one suffers from large QCD and combinatorial backgrounds. Starting from geometrically large sizes of jets and looking into their substructure, we can efficiently reduce these background. We develop HEPTopTagger by adopting a combination of the Cambridge/Aachen algorithm and the mass drop criterion. As application for physics cases, we illustrate the scalar top reconstruction and the top forward-backward asymmetry.

The significance of this structure is six standard deviations and its mass is consistent with that of the state recently discovered by the ATLAS Collaboration.

        Constraining quark angular momentum with the Sivers function
        The determination of quark angular momentum requires the knowledge of the generalized parton distribution E in the forward limit. We assume a connection between this function and the Sivers transverse-momentum distribution, based on model calculations and theoretical considerations. Using this assumption, we show that it is possible to fit at the same time nucleon magnetic moments and semi-inclusive single-spin asymmetries. This imposes additional constraints on the Sivers function and opens a plausible way to quantifying quark angular momentum.

        New features in version 2 of the fastNLO project
        Standard methods for higher-order pQCD calculations of cross sections in hadron-induced collisions are time-consuming. The fastNLO project uses multi-dimensional interpolation techniques to convert the convolutions of perturbative coefficients with parton distribution functions and the strong coupling into simple products. By integrating the perturbative coefficients for a given observable with interpolation kernels, fastNLO can store the results of the time-consuming calculation in tables which can subsequently be used for very fast calculations of the same observable for arbitrary PDFs, alpha_s, and different scales. These tables and corresponding user codes are currently available for a large number of jet measurements at the LHC, the Fermilab Tevatron, and HERA. fastNLO is currently used in publications of experimental results by the ATLAS, CMS, CDF, D0, and H1 collaborations, and in all recent global PDF analyses by MSTW, CTEQ, and NNPDF. This talk will focus on new developments, implemented in the new version 2 of fastNLO, which enhance and broaden the functionality.

        Inclusive jet and dijet double-differential cross sections have been measured in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using the ATLAS detector. The cross sections were measured using jets clustered with the anti-kT algorithm. The measurements are performed in the jet rapidity range |y|<4.4, covering jet transverse momenta from 20 GeV to 1.5 TeV and dijet invariant masses from 70 GeV to 5 TeV. The data are compared to expectations based on next-to-leading order QCD calculations corrected for non-perturbative effects, as well as to next-to-leading order Monte Carlo predictions. In addition to a test of the theory in a new kinematic regime, the data also provide sensitivity to parton distribution functions in a region where they are currently not well-constrained.

        On the timelike splitting functions at NNLO and beyond
        We present the third-order (NNLO) contributions to the timelike splitting functions governing the evolution of parton fragmentation functions in QCD. The hitherto missing quark-gluon and gluon-quark quantities have been derived by studying physical evolution kernels for photon- and Higgs-exchange DIS structure functions and their counterparts in semi-inclusive annihilation, together with constraints from the momentum sum rule and supersymmetric limit. A numerically tolerable uncertainty remains in the quark-gluon case which does not affect the endpoint logarithms for small and large momentum fractions x. The stability of the perturbative expansion at small x is spoiled by large double logarithms up to alpha_s^n ln^{2*n-2} x. Much more stable results are obtained when the fixed-order results are combined with the new small-x resummation up to the next-to-next-to-leading (NNL) logarithms (the derivation of which is discussed in another contribution).

        Diffraction and rapidity gap measurements with ATLAS
        Transverse energy distributions and regions of low activity in proton-proton scattering events are sensitive to soft physics, low x and diffractive processes, and have been measured in inclusive "minimum bias" scatters as well as in dijet events at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV. In the inclusive analysis, cross sections are measured differentially in terms of Delta eta F, the larger of the pseudorapidity regions extending to the limits of the ATLAS sensitivity, in which no final state particles are produced above a transverse momentum threshold p_T Cut. The measurements span the region 0 < Delta eta F < 8 for 200 < p_T Cut < 800 MeV. The data are used to constrain the value of the pomeron intercept appropriate to triple Regge models of soft diffraction, and the cross section integrated over all gap sizes is compared with other LHC inelastic cross section measurements. The dijet measurements study jet activity in the rapidity interval bounded by a dijet system, as well as in the forward region. Differential distributions are compared to various QCD calculations including different approximations for gluon radiation.

        Timelike Compton Scattering - new theoretical results and experimental possibilities
        Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) offer a new way to access the quark and gluon nucleon structure. We advocate the need to supplement the experimental study of deeply virtual Compton scattering by its crossed version, timelike Compton scattering (TCS) i.e. the exclusive photoproduction of a lepton pairs with large invariant mass. We review recent progress in this domain, in particular the need to include NLO corrections to any phenomenological program to extract GPDs from experimental data. We also stress that data on TCS at high energy should be available soon thanks to the proposed experimental program at JLab at 12 GeV, and study of ultraperipheral collisions at RHIC and LHC which opens a window on quark and gluon GPDs at very small skewness.

The main focus is on the linearly polarized gluon TMD which is often referred to as the gluon Boer-Mulders function. With the derived gluon TMDs at small x, it is shown that an effective TMD factorization can be established at small x in a certain kinematical region. As a result, this distribution, in principle, can be accessed through measuring $\cos 2 \phi$ azimuthal asymmetries in various hard scattering processes, such as di-jets production in SIDIS, virtual photon-jet production in pA collisions and heavy quark pair production in pA collisions.
