DELPHES 3 article in the INSPIRE's top 40 most cited...

The article entitled "DELPHES 3: a modular framework for fast simulation of a generic collider experiment" was written and published by a group of CP3 researchers in 2014 [1]. In 2020, after several years of steady progress in the number of citations, this article appears for the first time in...

The top quark as a new tool for nuclear physics

A new preliminary result by the CMS collaboration [CMS-PAS-HIN-19-001, cds.cern.ch/record/2699428] demonstrates for the first time that top quarks can be produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions. To provide the context for this breakthrough, let us start by recalling that the flagship...

New result on BR(K^+ \to \pi^+ \nu \bar{\nu}) from NA62...

A way to investigate the presence of new physics at very high energy, not accessible to LHC, is searching for deviations from the SM of quantities predicted very precisely within the SM, even at small energies. One of these quantities is how often a charged Kaon decays to a charged pion and a...

Suppose that you need to see what is inside a small room that is difficult to access. Thick walls between you and the object of your investigation; you cannot dig, and the closest that you can get to the target is inside a narrow tunnel, with no electricity to power your instrumentation....
