The contents of this review reflect some of the shifts of emphasis that are occurring among the fields of astrophysics, nuclear physics, and elementary particle physics. Particle physics has made great advances in the unification of the fundamental forces of nature. Discussions and planning for a next big step in accelerator-colliders are presented. The technology of superconducting magnet systems as well as the fundamental physical principles of particle accelerators are discussed. Also… 
Extension of the nuclear mass surface for neutron-rich isotopes of argon through iron
EXTENSION OF THE NUCLEAR MASS SURFACE FOR NEUTRON-RICH ISOTOPES OF ARGON THROUGH IRON By Zachary Paul Meisel Nuclear mass measurement has maintained an important position in the field of nuclear
The Neutrino Factory – The Final Frontier in Neutrino Physics?
This talk will present arguments that the Neutrino Factory — an extremely intense source of flavor-tagged neutrinos from muon decays in a storage ring — gives the best physics reach for CP violation,
Recent Progress and New Challenges in Isospin Physics with Heavy-Ion Reactions
The ultimate goal of studying isospin physics via heavy-ion reactions with neutron-rich, stable and/or radioactive nuclei is to explore the isospin dependence of in-medium nuclear effective
Imposing multi-physics constraints at different densities on the Neutron Star Equation of State
Neutron star matter spans a wide range of densities, from that of nuclei at the surface to exceeding several times normal nuclear matter density in the core. While terrestrial experiments, such as
Testing Violations of Lorentz Invariance with Cosmic-Rays
Cosmic rays are the highest energy particles available for our study and as such serve as excellent probes of the effects of Lorentz Invariance Violations, which are expected to increase with energy.
Charged current neutrino interactions in hot and dense matter
We derive the charged current absorption rate of electron and anti-electron neutrinos in dense matter using a fully relativistic approach valid at arbitrary matter degeneracy. We include mean field
On the PeV knee of the cosmic ray spectrum and the TeV cutoff of the electron spectrum
Spectra of Cosmic Rays (CRs), particularly their features, may hold essential information about astroparticle and fundamental physics. Realizing that both $4$ PeV CR knee and electron's TeV break
Symmetries and Interactions from Lattice QCD
Precision experimental tests of the Standard Model of particle physics (SM) are one of our best hopes for discovering what new physics lies beyond the SM (BSM). Key in the search for new physics is
Measurement of the G double-polarisation observable in positive pion photoproduction
Establishing the resonance spectrum of the nucleon with accuracy would provide important new information about the dynamics and degrees of freedom of its constituents. The spectrum and properties of
Measuring the neutron lifetime using magnetically trapped neutrons
Abstract The neutron beta-decay lifetime plays an important role both in understanding weak interactions within the framework of the Standard Model and in theoretical predictions of the primordial
