Description
Institute for High Energy Physics  (in the framework of the National Research Centre "Kurchatov Institute") is organizing the XXX-th International Workshop on High Energy Physics “Particle and Astroparticle Physics, Gravitation and Cosmology: Predictions, Observations and New Projects”, June 23-27, 2014, in Protvino, Moscow region, Russia.
 The purpose of this Workshop is to exhibit a more complete and coherent picture of our understanding of the structure and dynamics of the microcosm, the megacosm and its evolution and the relationship between these two extremes of modern physics.
 The Workshop covers both theory and experiment/observations in most actual and critical points.
 We would like to promote, at the meeting, much more critical discussions than is usually the case. We strive to make the meeting not only informative but also to give it a truly working character with the aim to elaborate meaningful and clear conclusions about the actual state of affairs in the main areas of high-energy particle and astroparticle physics, gravitation and cosmology, with an emphasis on difficulties and unresolved problems.
 To this end the meeting will be organized so that regular talks will be accompanied by discussion panels. The poster exhibition for brief actual notes is also envisaged.
 Topics to discuss contain presumably Higgs boson, hadron spectroscopy, heavy flavour physics, CP-violation, neutrino oscillations and the problem of neutrino mass, quark-gluon plasma and other exotic states of matter, QCD at short and large distances, astroparticle data from exploratory researches on dark matter, dark energy and black holes, early and present Universe, cosmic microwave background radiation, progress in experimental and accelerator techniques.
 We believe that such a relatively wide scope of subjects for presentation and discussion will be also a good opportunity for participants to learn first hands about the state of art in the fields of common interest where they are not experts.

Talks and panel discussions
 Presentations are limited to 25 minutes for the talk proper with 4 additional minutes for discussion and 1 minute for transition to the next presentation and introduction of the next speaker. Panel discussions usually take 45-60 minutes.

Participation is by invitation of the Organizing Committee

        The Standard Model (SM), the theory of particle physics was established 40 years ago and it seems to describe all experimental data very well. All of its elementary particles were identified long ago apart from the Higgs boson. For decades many experiments were built and operated searching for the SM Higgs boson and finally, the two main experiments of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, CMS and ATLAS in July 2012 reported the observation of a new particle with properties close to those predicted for the Higgs boson, thereby proving the validity of the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism of spontaneous symmetry breaking in the Standard Model. In this talk we outline the search story: the exclusion of the SM Higgs boson at LEP, the Large Electron Positron collider, and its first observation at the LHC.

        Moderator: Dmitri Kazakov Panelists: Dezso Horvath, Lydia Roos, Milos Dordevic, Yury Kolomensky, Maxim Titov Questions: 1. Does finding the 125 GeV Higgs boson exclude all other possible mass creation mechanisms? 2. Is this the SM Higgs boson? How much space is left for extensions (like the SUSY Higgs sector)? 3. How special is the 125 GeV mass in view of the top mass? (What happens to the future of particle physics if the EW vacuum is stable?) 4. How does the 125 GeV Higgs boson orient the plans for the next colliders, ILC and/or FCC? 5. Is there any role of the Higgs boson in the evolution of the universe?

        Electroweak Processes in Laser-Boosted Lepton Collisions 25m
        The associated creation of a Higgs and a $Z^0$ boson in relativistic lepton-antilepton collisions taking place in a strong laser field is studied. The energy of the pre-accelerated particles may be vastly increased by their interaction with the intense laser field. The total cross section as well as the produced Higgs boson's energy distribution are calculated and related to field-free collisions of corresponding center-of-mass energy. Possible qualitative differences with regard to the detection of the Higgs bosons are presented. The required laser paramters and other experimental challenges are specified [1]. [1] S. J. Müller, C.

        ALICE Fast Interaction Trigger detector for the future 20m
        As a result of the LHC upgrade after the Long Shutdown 2, the expected luminosity and collision rate during the so called Run 3 will considerably exceed the design parameters for several of the key ALICE detectors systems including the forward trigger detectors. Furthermore, the introduction of a new Muon Forward Tracker significantly reduces the space envelope available for the upgraded Fast Interaction Trigger (FIT) detector on the muon spectrometer side. At the same time, FIT is expected to match and even exceed the functionality and performance currently secured by three ALICE sub-detectors: the time zero detector (T0), the VZERO system, and the Forward Multiplicity Detector (FMD). The harsh conditions of Run 3 would accelerate the ageing and radiation damage (detectable already during Run 1) of the FIT detector if we were to use standard PMTs. The solution came thanks to the latest developments in MCP-PMT technology providing compact photo sensors with excellent characteristics and stability. The key design features of FIT will be presented together with the latest simulation results and benchmark tests of the prototype.

        The ALICE experiment is equipped with a wide range of detectors providing excellent tracking and particle identification in the central barrel, as well as forward detectors with extended pseudorapidity coverage, which are well suited for studying diffractive processes. In this talk, we shall highlight cross section measurements of single and double diffractive processes performed by ALICE in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=0.9,~2.76,~7~TeV$. The plans for $\sqrt{s}=8~TeV$ pp data treatment will be also discussed. Currently, ALICE is studying double-gap events in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7~TeV$, which gives an insight into central diffraction processes. We shall discuss the current status and perspectives for central diffraction studies in the ALICE experiment. The upgrade plans for diffraction studies, further extending the pseudorapidity acceptance of the ALICE setup for the coming Run 2 of the LHC, will be outlined.

        New experimental data about proton-proton collisions obtained at the LHC allow to widen drastically the energy interval where one gets some knowledge about the structure of their interaction region. It is shown how the shape and the darkness of the interaction region of colliding protons change with increase of their energies. In particular, the collisions become fully absorptive at small impact parameters at LHC energies that results in some special features of inelastic processes. Possible evolution of the shape from the dark core to the fully transparent one is discussed that implies the terminology of the black disk would be replaced by the black torus. The parameter which determines the opacity of central collisions plays a crucial role in the behavior of the differential cross section of elastic scattering outside the diffraction cone where the predictions of all phenomenological models failed at LHC energies. The role of the ratio of real to imaginary part of the elastic scattering amplitude at non-forward scattering becomes decisive there. It allows to estimate this ratio for the first time by comparison with experiment at LHC energies which happens to be drastically different from its values measured at low transferred momenta. Moreover, the behaviours of the real and imaginary parts separately differ in the models and in the approach based on the unitarity condition. This problem is still waiting for its resolution.

        Many of the XYZ resonances observed by the Belle, Babar, CLEO and BESIII collaborations in the past decade are difficult to interpret as conventional quark-antiquark mesons, motivating the consideration of scenarios such as multi-quark states, meson molecules, and hybrids. After a brief introduction to QCD sum-rule methods, we provide a brief but comprehensive review of the mass spectra of the quarkonium-like tetraquark states $qQ\bar{q}\bar{Q}$, doubly charmed/bottomed tetraquark states $QQ\bar{q}\bar{q}$ and the heavy quarkonium hybrid states $\bar{Q}GQ$ in the QCD sum rules approach. Possible interpretations of the XYZ resonances are briefly discussed.

        A broad scientific program of exploration of nucleon exited states(N*) spectrum and structure is carried out in Jefferson Laboratory[1]. Detailed information of N* structure and spectrum opens access to fundamental mechanisms of strong interaction in the domain of large quark-gluon coupling constant resulting in formation of nucleons as bound states of quarks and gluons. The unique combination of electron continuous beam and CLAS[2] detector made it possible to explore for the first time the photo and electroproduction of nucleon resonances in exclusive γp→π+π-p reactions[2,3]. The processes γp→πp and γp→ππp give the largest contribution to the total pion photo and electroproduction cross section. Moreover two-pion channel is more preferrable in studying high lying resonances with masses greater than 1.6 GeV because of the dominant branching ratio. Also this channel gives the opportunity to look for “missing N” states because the constituent quark model calculations show that the decays of these states to single pion channel are suppressed. At this moment the preliminary CLAS data analysis on two-pion photo and electroproduction is complete. In case of photoproduction because of large statistics it was for the first time possible to obtain one-fold and two-fold differential cross-sections with rather narrow bin width of central mass energy – 25 MeV. It is worth noting that both photo and electroproduction will be analysed within the framework of one phenomenological model JM[3] to ensure certainty of nucleon resonances extracted parameters.

        How far can a pragmatist go into quantum theory? A critical view of our current understanding of quantum phenomena. 40m
        Quantum mechanics has proven to be the most successful theory ever devised. This theory not only has addressed the most fundamental physical problems, but its applications constitute an important part of our everyday life (actually, more sophisticated applications are still to come). There is however a “mystery” involving this theory since its inception. The fact that we cannot understand quantum phenomena under the same logic as we do with classical phenomena brings in a puzzling situation which has left open a tough debate on its interpretation since the 1930s. Probably this debate will never be really closed (or at least until we will be able to devise a new, wider theory) and, in such a case, it might be pointless to make or even talk about quantum philosophical issues or to further develop the area of the quantum foundations. This leads to a kind of hopeless situation. It directly goes to a materialization of Plato’s myth of the cave: we are enforced to perceive the shadows cast on the wall of the cave (our reality) by the real world (the Reality), without the possibility to ever reaching a true understanding of the physical world. Even in such a harsh scenario, there is still room enough to further explore the quantum world from a pragmatist’s point of view. We know a lot about the vacuum properties without knowing what vacuum really is; we are developing amazing technologies based on quantum entanglement without knowing how entangled correlations really happen or operate at a fundamental level. At this point, one needs to turn back the eyes and reflect about how the quantum theory has developed since its inception at a conceptual level, what can be done nowadays, or which new, nonorthodox paths are and can be followed. One of them is the quantum hydrodynamical approach to the quantum theory, shyly developed during the 1950s and that nowadays is trying to open new pathways of understanding. This communication will deal with the evolution of this approach since its inception, its meaning and interest, the kind of quantum physics that can be inferred from it, and the contextualization of quantum mechanics according to it.

        The ALICE experiment at the LHC performs comprehensive studies of the QCD matter with Pb-Pb, p-Pb and pp collisions. A complete set of observables measured by ALICE allows one to explore properties of the deconfnined quark-gluon medium at high temperature and energy density, to study initial-state effects of heavy-ion collisions and to study particle production in QCD vacuum. In this talk, an overview of the recent results obtained by the ALICE collaboration from the data collected during the LHC Run1, is given. Upgrade program for Run2 and Run3 will be also presented.

        Measurements of direct photon and neutral pion production in heavy-ion collisions provide a comprehensive set of observables characterizing properties of the hot QCD medium. Unlike hadrons, direct photons are produced in all stages of a nucleus-nucleus collision and therefore probe the initial state of the collision as well as the space-time evolution of the produced medium. Prompt direct photons provide means to control the initial stage of the collision and ensure that the yield suppression of hard hadrons and in particular neutral pions in Pb-Pb collision is a final-state effect and should be attributed to the parton energy loss in the hot medium. The thermal direct photon spectrum and flow carry information about temperature and space-time evolution of the emitting medium. Measurements of neutral meson spectra in pp collisions at energies $\sqrt{s}$=0.9, 2.76, 7 TeV serve a reference for heavy-ion collisions, and also provide valuable data for pQCD calculations and for studying scaling properties of hadron production at the LHC energies. The ALICE experiment at LHC reconstructs photons via complementary methods, using the ALICE electromagnetic calorimeters and the central tracking system identifying photons converted to $e^+e^-$ pairs in the material of the inner barrel detectors. Neutral pions are reconstructed using their two-photon decays. Since calorimetric and tracking approaches have practically independent systematic uncertainties, their comparison provides a strong cross-check. In this talk, we review recent ALICE results on neutral pion and direct photon production in pp and Pb-Pb collisions.

        Recent experimental results obtained at the relativistic heavy-ion collider (RHIC) will be discussed. Investigations of different nuclear-nuclear collisions in recent some years focus on two main tasks, namely, detail study of sQGP properties and exploration of the QCD phase diagram. Results at top RHIC energy provide important information about event shapes as well as transport and thermodynamics properties of the hot medium for various flavors. Heavy-ion collisions are unique tool for the study of topological properties of theory. Experimental results obtained for discrete QCD symmetries at finite temperatures are discussed. These results confirm indirectly the topologically non-trivial structure of QCD vacuum. Most results obtained during stage I of the RHIC beam energy scan (BES) program show smooth behavior vs initial energy. However certain results suggest the transition in the domain of dominance of hadronic degrees of freedom at center-of-mass energies between 10–20 GeV. Future developments and more precise studies of features of QCD phase diagram in the framework of stage II of RHIC BES will be briefly discussed.

        Hard scattered partons lose significant energy traversing the medium created in high energy collisions of heavy nuclei, resulting in suppressed yields of final state high pT hadrons. Results from the PHENIX experiment at RHIC on the suppression of high pT hadrons at mid-rapidity in central Au+Au and Cu+Cu collisions will be shown and compared to corresponding results in d+Au collisions. The beam energy dependence of high pT pi0 suppression in Au+Au collisions will be presented. In addition, results on direct photon yields, which don't suffer energy loss due to the strong nuclear force, will be shown for Au+Au and d+Au collisions.

        The OPERA experiment aims at providing a direct proof of the $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_{\tau}$ oscillations by observing $\nu_{\tau}$ CC interactions in an almost pure $\nu_{\mu}$ accelerator beam, the CNGS (CERN Neutrinos to Gran Sasso). The beam exposure started in 2008 and ended in 2012. Events recorded in the Emulsion Cloud Chamber detectors, made of lead plates and nuclear emulsions, are being analysed since 2008. In the last period, a large additional amount of data has been extracted, leading to the validation of a 4th $\nu_{\tau}$ candidate event. This new result brings the observation of the oscillation to a significance exceeding 4 sigma.

        The main goal of the OPERA experiment is the direct observation of $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_{\tau}$ oscillations in the appearance mode in the quasi pure $\nu_{\mu}$ CNGS beam. Profiting of the tracking capabilities of the OPERA active target it is possible to detect and reconstruct $\nu_e$ interactions and, therefore, study the subdominant $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_e$ oscillation channel. Current results on this channel in the three-flavour mixing model are presented. The same data allow to constrain the non-standard oscillation parameters indicated by the LSND and MiniBooNE experiments.

        The KM3NeT collaboration aims at the construction of a multi-cubic-kilometre scale neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. The main goal of KM3NeT is to observe high-energy cosmic neutrinos. The first phase of the telescope construction has started at two sites in the Mediterranean: KM3NeT-Fr and KM3NeT-It. The KM3NeT-Fr site is close to that of Antares, about 45 km off-shore Toulon, France at a depth of 2500m; the KM3NeT-It site is 100 km off-shore the south-east coast of Sicily, Italy at a depth of 3500 m. At both sites, a seafloor network and shore stations are being installed to allow for connection of about 30 KM3NeT detection units, vertical structures holding optical modules. In its full configuration, KM3NeT will consist of a few building blocks, arrays of thousands optical modules, and will be the largest and the most sensitive high-energy neutrino detector. A prototype KM3NeT optical module is successfully operational in the Antares telescope since April 2013. A prototype KM3NeT detection unit with three optical modules is operational since May 2014 at the KM3NeT-It site. In the talk, the physics objectives and the design of the KM3NeT neutrino telescope and first results from prototypes operations are presented. *Supported by the ‘Helmholtz Alliance for Astroparticle Physics HAP’ funded by the Initiative and Networking Fund of the Helmholtz Association*

        The Daya Bay Experiment measured reactor anti-neutrino disappearance on short baseline with unprecedented precision. In a three-neutrino framework our best fit for oscillation parameters is $\sin^22\theta_{13}=0.084\pm0.005$ and $|\Delta m_{ee}^2|=2.44^{+0.10}_{-0.11}\times 10^{-3}\:\text{eV}^2$. We also preformed largely independent measurement of $\theta_{13}$ using neutron capture on hydrogen. The result $\sin^22\theta_{13}=0.083\pm0.018$ is consistent with measurement using neutron capture on gadolinium. With over 1 million detected inverse beta decay interactions using neutron capture on gadolinium the Daya Bay Experiment provides high statistics measurement of absolute reactor $\bar{\nu}_e$ flux. The result is in agreement with previous short-baseline experiments and favors so called 'reactor anomaly'. With the combination of multiple baselines Daya Bay has unique chance to set the most stringent limit on light sterile neutrino mixing in region $10^{-3}\:\text{eV}^2<\Delta m^2_{41}<10^{-1}\:\text{eV}^2$.

        Moderator: Alexandre Kisselev Panelists: Fernando Arqueros, Henning Gast, Vladimir Solovov Questions: 1. What is the origin of the GZK-like suppression of the cosmic ray (CR) flux? Is it due to energy loss during propagation or due to reaching maximum energy achievable in a source? 2. Are the data on mass composition of ultra- high energy CRs consistent with a hypothesis that primary particles are 100% proton? Or an admixture of heavy nuclei is also allowed? 3. Does the deficit of muons in LHC-tuned MC simulations mean that current hadronic interaction models must be seriously corrected? 4. Does the anomalous positron fraction (PF) approach a stable asymptotic value or a sharp cutoff at higher energies is possible? 5. Do we observe annihilation of a dark matter or nearby pulsar contribution? Will anisotropy in an arrival direction of CR leptons rule out a dark matter interpretation of PF? 6. Is low-mass WIMP region completely excluded by the data?

        In the history of cosmology the paradoxes played important role for development of contemporary world models. Within the modern standard cosmological model there are both observational and conceptual cosmological paradoxes which stimulate to search their solution. Confrontation of theoretical predictions of the standard cosmological model with the latest astrophysical observational data is considered. A review of conceptual problems of the Friedmann’s space expending models, which are in the bases of modern cosmological model, is discussed. The main paradoxes, which are discussed in modern literature, are the Newtonian character of the exact Friedman equation, the violation of the energy conservation within any comoving local volume, violation of the limiting recession velocity of galaxies for the observed high redshifts. Possible observational tests of the nature of the cosmological redshift are discussed.

        The scale parameter and the average behavior of the temperatures and densities of the main components of the $\Lambda$CDM universe are sketched, beginning after the end of inflation. The universe is treated as a perfect fluid. A model of dark energy based on conformal variations of the metric is briefly discussed. Darkmatter is assumed to consist of neutralinos, a LSP and leading WIMP candidate. The main events of the thermal evolution are studied, such as the effect of particle decoupling and the transitions between eras dominated by the different entities. We examine the distinction between Majorana and Dirac neutrinos based on the influence they have on the age of the universe and on the present epoch neutrino density.

        (1) There are two new observational facts: the mass spectrum of neutron stars and candidates to black holes shows an evident absence of compact objects with masses within the interval 2 - 6 solar ones, and in close binary stellar systems with a low-massive optical companion the most probable mass value (a peak in the masses distribution of black hole candidates) is close to 7 masses of the Sun. (2) In the totally non-metric field/scalar-tensor model of gravitational interaction the total mass of a compact relativistic object with extremely strong gravitational field (an analog of black holes in GR) is approximately equal to 6.7 solar masses with radius of a region filled with matter (quark-gluon plasma) approx. 10 m. (3) Polarized emission of gamma-ray bursts, a black-body component in their spectrum and other observed properties could be explained by the direct manifestation of surface of these collapsars.
