Accelerator R&D Program at Integrable Optics Test Accelerator

Fermilab is developing an Advanced Accelerator R&D program centered at IOTA – the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator. This small and flexible ring will be used for proof-of-principle R&D of novel concepts towards future high intensity machines. Of particular interest are the nonlinear integrable optics and the space charge compensation. This talk reviews IOTA’s R&D program as supported by modeling and simulations, and presents the current status of the design and construction of the facility.

The search of Baryonium

Nucleon-antinucleon quasi-bound states, or states coupled to these, were searched for in the days of LEAR at CERN. Nothing has been found, but broad states or states close to the threshold were not excluded. Recent indications of the existence of quasi-bound states in the N$\overline N$ system will be presented. The BES collaboration has discovered a broad enhancement close to the p$\overline p$ threshold in the S wave, isospin 0 state formed in radiative decays of J$\psi$. Another enhancement located about 50 MeV below the threshold was found in mesonic decays of J$\psi$. In terms of the Paris potential model these findings are likely to be due to the same state. Antiprotonic atomic data provide some support for this interpretation and indicate existence of another fairly narrow quasi-bound state in a P wave. Few clarifying experiments will be indicated.

On nuclear states of mesons

The existence of nuclear states of $\bar K$ mesons and $\eta$ mesons has been expected for about thirty years. The physical interest of this field is related to a new mechanism of nuclear binding generated by excitations of the internal nucleon structure. Despite being short lived such states might offer a new and interesting nuclear spectroscopy. Despite long and extensive experimental search, the existence and properties of such states are still elusive. Some similarities and related questions of the $\eta$ and $\bar K$ cases will be shown. Possible origin of the experimental difficulties related to weak production rate and large widths of such states will be discussed. I will try to indicate usefulness of the recent AMADEUS/KLOE measurements.

The quantum effects on all Lagrangian points and prospects to measure the effects in the Earth-Moon system.

The leading long distance quantum corrections to the Newtonian potential imply tiny but observable effects in the restricted three-body problem of celestial mechanics, i.e., at the Lagrangian libration points of stable equilibrium the planetoid is not exactly at equal distance from the two bodies of large mass, but the Newtonian values of its coordinates are changed by a few millimeters in the Earth-Moon system. We show that such a theoretical calculation is governed by a couple of quintic algebraic equation, whereas coordinates of collinear Lagrangian points are given in terms of the solution of an algebraic equation of ninth degree. We also discuss the prospects to measure, with the help of laser ranging, the above departure from the equilateral triangle picture, which is a challenging task. On the other hand, a modern version of the planetoid is the solar sail, and much progress has been made, in recent years, on the displaced periodic orbits of solar sails at all libration points, both stable and unstable. By taking into account the quantum corrections to the Newtonian potential, displaced periodic orbits of the solar sail at libration points are again found to exist.

Supersymmetry Breaking and Born-Infeld Actions

We review the partial breaking of N=2 rigid Supersymmetry and present new results for mass generation in the SuperHiggs phase. Special Geometry,underlying the dynamics of vector multiplets and the symplectic Structure of electric-magnetic duality play an important role in this context

Workshop on New Trends in Algebraic Quantum Field Theory

The New Trends in Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (AQFT2015) will be held in Frascati. INFN – LNF on 11 -13 February 2015. The workshop is the third in a series aimed at intensifying the exchange and the collaboration between Italian and international research groups active in the context of rigorous approaches to quantum field theory, with particular regard to the interfaces with the theory of operator algebras and non-commutative geometry. The purpose of the workshop, and the series, is also to provide graduate students and post-docs the opportunity to communicate their findings and discuss with experienced researchers. The workshop is an activity that fits within the convention between the INFN and the Centre for Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (CMTP), University of Rome Tor Vergata, and is also financed by the PRIN 2010 “Operator Algebras, Noncommutative Geometry and Applications” (P.I. Roberto Longo), and by the INdAM-GNAMPA. Invited speakers: R. Brunetti, D. Buchholz, C. Dappiaggi, S. Doplicher, C. Fewster, F. Fidaleo, K. Fredenhagen, S. Hollands, G. Lechner, N.Pinamonti, A. Pizzo, K.H. Rehren, Y. Tanimoto Organizing Committee: G. Morsella, G. Ruzzi
