Title: QCD, New Physics and Experiment

Abstract

I give a summary of Section E of the seventh edition of the Conference Quark confinement and the hadron spectrum. Papers were presented on different subjects, from spectroscopy, including pentaquarks and hadron structure, to the quest for physics beyond the standard model.

  • The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) is one of the two large, multi-purpose experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. During the Run I Phase a large pp collision dataset has been collected and the CMS collaboration has explored measurements that shed light on a new era. Forward and small-x quantum chromodynamics (QCD) physics measurements with CMS experiment covers a wide range of physics subjects. Some of highlights in terms of testing the very low-x QCD, underlying event and multiple interaction characteristics, photon-mediated processes, jets with large rapidity separation at high pseudo-rapidities and the inelastic proton-proton cross section dominatedmore » by diffractive interactions are presented. Results are compared to Monte Carlo (MC) models with different parameter tunes for the description of the underlying event and to perturbative QCD calculations. The prominent role of multi-parton interactions has been confirmed in the semihard sector but no clear deviation from the standard Dglap parton evolution due to Bfkl has been observed. An outlook to the prospects at 13 TeV is given.« less
  • In this paper two of the most recent results from the NA62 and NA48/2 Collaborations are reviewed. The NA62-phase I experiment has been proposed to study the {mu}-e universality through the measurement of the ratio R{sub K} ({gamma}(K{sup {+-}}{yields}e{sup {+-}}{nu})/{gamma}(K{sup {+-}}{yields}{mu}{sup {+-}}{nu})). The physics motivations and status of the analysis, based on 40% of the total data sample, are presented. The NA48/2 experiment has been designed with the main purpose of searching for direct CP violation in kaon decays. At same time, thanks to the very high statistics accumulated, extensive studies of low energy hadron dynamics have been carried out.more » Results on the {pi}{pi} scattering lengths (a{sub 0} and a{sub 2}), using two different approaches, are presented. Both experiments are installed at CERN SPS; data have been collected in 2003 and 2004 by the NA48/2 experiment and in 2007 by the NA62-phase I experiment.« less
  • I review a number of topics where conventional wisdom relevant to hadron physics at the LHC has been challenged. For example, the initial-state and final-state interactions of the quarks and gluons entering perturbative QCD hard-scattering subprocesses lead to the breakdown of traditional concepts of factorization and universality for transverse-momentum-dependent observables at leading twist. The soft-gluon rescattering effects, which are associated with the Wilson line of the propagating partons, also lead to Bjorken-scaling single-spin asymmetries, diffractive deep inelastic scattering, the breakdown of the Lam-Tung leading-twist relation in Drell-Yan reactions, as well as nuclear shadowing. The Gribov-Glauber theory applied to the antishadowingmore » domain predicts that nuclear structure functions depend on the flavor quantum numbers of each quark and antiquark, thus explaining the anomalous nuclear dependence recently observed in deep-inelastic neutrino scattering. Surprisingly, isolated hadrons can be produced at large transverse momentum directly within a hard higher-twist QCD subprocess, rather than from jet fragmentation. The rate is predicted to be significant, even at the LHC. Such 'direct' processes can explain the observed deviations from perturbative QCD predictions in measurements of inclusive hadron cross sections at fixed x{sub T} = 2p{sub T}/{radical}(s), as well as the 'baryon anomaly', the anomalously large proton-to-pion ratio seen in high centrality heavy-ion collisions at RHIC. The intrinsic charm contribution to the proton structure function at high x can explain the large rate for high p{sub T} photon plus charm-jet events observed by D0 at the Tevatron. Intrinsic charm and bottom distributions also imply anomalously large production of charm and bottom jets at high p{sub T} at the LHC, as well as a novel mechanism for Higgs and Z{sup 0} production at high x{sub F}. Other novel features of QCD are discussed, including the consequences of confinement for quark and gluon condensates and the implications for the QCD contribution to the cosmological constant. The light-front wavefunctions derived in AdS/QCD can be used to calculate jet hadronization at the amplitude level. I also note that the elimination of the renormalization scale ambiguity for the QCD coupling using the scheme-independent BLM method will greatly improve the precision of QCD predictions and thus greatly increase the sensitivity of searches for new physics at the LHC.« less
