The Review summarizes much of particle physics and cosmology. Using data from previous editions, plus 3,283 new measurements from 899 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons and the recently discovered Higgs boson, leptons, quarks, mesons, and baryons. We summarize searches for hypothetical particles such as heavy neutrinos, supersymmetric and technicolor particles, axions, dark photons, etc. All the particle properties and search limits are listed in Summary… 

The Standard Model of Particle Physics

The Standard Model of particle physics is currently our best framework for the description of all the known elementary particles and all the fundamental forces of Nature except gravity. It is the

New constraints (and motivations) for abelian gauge bosons in the MeV-TeV mass range

We survey the phenomenological constraints on abelian gauge bosons having masses in the MeV to multi-GeV mass range (using precision electroweak measurements, neutrino-electron and neutrino-nucleon

W -boson and trident production in TeV–PeV neutrino observatories

Detecting TeV–PeV cosmic neutrinos provides crucial tests of neutrino physics and astrophysics. The statistics of IceCube and the larger proposed IceCube-Gen2 demand calculations of neutrino-nucleus

Scalar dark matter candidates revisited

We revisit the possibility of light scalar dark matter, in the MeV to GeV mass bracket and coupled to electrons through fermion or vector mediators, in light of significant experimental and

Astrophysical neutrinos: signal and background in searches for fundamental physics

As the experimental boundaries of the energy and intensity frontiers are pushed forwards, astroparticle physics increasingly becomes a key tool to understand the microscopic and macroscopic

The BESIII physics programme

The standard model of particle physics is a well-tested theoretical framework, but there are still a number of issues that deserve further experimental and theoretical investigation. For quark

The Implications of Gauging Lepton Flavour Symmetries for Neutrino Masses and Dark Matter

T he Standard Model of particle physics is a phenomenologically successful description of the strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions at all currently accessible energy scales with few

New physics searches at the BESIII experiment

Abstract The standard model (SM) of particle physics, comprised of the unified electroweak and quantum chromodynamic theories, accurately explains almost all experimental results related to the



Tests of the Standard Theory of Electroweak Interactions

In this text the author gives a rather complete account of the available experimental information on neutral current reactions as predicted by the standard theory of electroweak interactions. The
