Presented here are first tests of a Gaseous Photomultiplier based on a cascade of Thick GEM structures intended for gamma-ray position reconstruction in liquid Argon. The detector has a MgF$_2$ window, transparent to VUV light, and a CsI photocathode deposited on the first THGEM. A gain of $8\cdot10^{5}$ per photoelectron and $\sim100\%$ photoelectron collection efficiency are measured at stable operation settings. Read More

A method is proposed to directly probe the Higgs boson compositeness using the unique characteristics of a boosted Higgs boson produced in association with a weak gauge boson ($W^{\pm},Z$). The discovery potential for the upcoming LHC running is presented, showing that compositeness scales up to 3 TeV can be probed at the LHC with an integrated luminosity of $\mathcal{L}=3000$ fb$^{-1}$ collected at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV.

The luminosity in the ZEUS detector was measured using photons from electron bremsstrahlung. In 2001 the HERA collider was upgraded for operation at higher luminosity. At the same time the luminosity-measuring system of the ZEUS experiment was modified to tackle the expected higher photon rate and synchrotron radiation. Read More

A data-driven method for simultaneously extracting a potential Higgs to ZZ to 4e, 4mu, 2e2mu signal and its dominant backgrounds, is presented. The method relies on a combined fit of the 2-lepton, Z*, and 4-lepton invariant masses. The fit is assisted by normalization of the Z+X backgrounds in data control regions. Read More

A new method for calibrating the hadron response of a segmented calorimeter is developed and successfully applied to beam test data. It is based on a principal component analysis of energy deposits in the calorimeter layers, exploiting longitudinal shower development information to improve the measured energy resolution. Corrections for invisible hadronic energy and energy lost in dead material in front of and between the calorimeters of the ATLAS experiment were calculated with simulated Geant4 Monte Carlo events and used to reconstruct the energy of pions impinging on the calorimeters during the 2004 Barrel Combined Beam Test at the CERN H8 area.

The upgrade of the HERA accelerator has provided much increased collider luminosity. In turn, the improvements have necessitated a new design for the ZEUS luminosity measurements. The intense synchrotron radiation field, as well as the high probability of a bremsstrahlung photon in each bunch crossing, posed new experimental constraints. Read More

Theoretical progress in Higgs boson production and background processes is discussed with particular emphasis on QCD corrections at and beyond next-to-leading order as well as next-to-leading order electroweak corrections. The residual theoretical uncertainties of the investigated processes are estimated in detail. Moreover, recent investigations of the MSSM Higgs sector and other extensions of the SM Higgs sector are presented. Read More

This presentation reports recent results from the hadronic final state in DIS at HERA. Forward jet and $\pi^0$ production have been measured by the H1 experiment. The forward jet production cross section shows significant deviation from the predictions based on DGLAP evolution. Read More

A technique for improving the momentum resolution for low momentum charged particles in few layer silicon based trackers is presented. The particle momenta are determined from the measured Landau dE/dx distribution and the Bethe-Bloch formula in the 1/beta^2 region. It is shown that a factor of two improvement of the momentum determination is achieved as compared to standard track fitting methods. Read More

The HERA luminosity upgrade is expected to generate two major problems in the current method of luminosity determination which is based on counting brehmsstrahlung photons: damage of the calorimeter monitor due to high primary synchrotron radiation and large multiple event (pile-up) corrections. The luminosity spectrometer presented in this talk, is a novel method that reduces the impact of these problems in the luminosity measurement and is expected to yield a total systematic uncertainty of 1.4%.

The baryon-baryon continuum invariant mass spectrum generated from relativistic nucleus + nucleus collision data may reveal the existence of doubly-strange dibaryons not stable against strong decay if they lie within a few MeV of threshold. Furthermore, since the dominant component of these states is a superposition of two color-octet clusters which can be produced intermediately in a color-deconfined quark-gluon plasma (QGP), an enhanced production of dibaryon resonances could be a signal of QGP formation. A total of eight, doubly-strange dibaryon states are considered for experimental search using the STAR detector (Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC) at the new Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).

The role of Strangeness as a signal of the Quark Gluon Plasma in relativistic heavy ion experiments is discussed. The current experimental status is briefly presented. Several scenarios which explain the CERN data are discussed. Read More

Using the QCD sum rule approach, we show that the flavor-nonsinglet $H$ dibaryon states with J$^{\pi} = 1^+$, J$^{\pi} = 0^+$, I=1 (27plet) are nearly degenerate with the J$^{\pi} = 0^+$, I=0 singlet $H_0$ dibaryon, which has been predicted to be stable against strong decay, but has not been observed. Our calculation, which does not require an instanton correction, suggests that the $H_0$ is slightly heavier than these flavor-nonsinglet $H$s over a wide range of the parameter space. If the singlet $H_0$ mass lies above the $\Lambda \Lambda$ threshold (2231~MeV), then the strong interaction breakup to $\Lambda \Lambda$ would produce a very broad resonance in the $\Lambda \Lambda$ invariant mass spectrum which would be very difficult to observe.
