In the next decade the construction of a kilometre-scale Astrophysical Neutrino Observatory in the Mediterranean Sea could become a reality. Small-scale (10[sup 4] m[sup 2]) detectors are already under development (NESTOR, ANTARES). NEMO Collaboration proposes both to study the characteristics of some deep sea Mediterranean sites, close to the Italian coast, where the kilometre-scale Cerenkov Detector could be located and to develop technologies relevant for its design and optimization. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    At high density, diquarks could condense in the vacuum with the QCD color spontaneously broken. Based on the observation that the symmetry breaking pattern involved in this phenomenon is essentially the same as that of the Pati-Salam model with broken electroweak-color SU(3) group, we determine...

    The rise of nucleon UHECR above GZK astronomy made by protons (AUGER November 2007) is puzzled by three main mysteries: an unexpected nearby Virgo UHECR suppression (or absence), a rich crowded clustering frozen vertically along Cen A, a composition suggesting nuclei (not much directional) and...

    Finding the Standard Model scalar (Higgs) boson is arguably the single most important mission of the LHC. I review predictions for the Higgs boson mass based on stability and perturbativity arguments, taking into account neutrino oscillations. Other topics that are briefly discussed include the...

    OPERA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment whose main goal is to detect for the first time neutrino oscillations in an appearance mode. Using an almost pure vμ beam we search for a vμ↔vτ, transition detecting in a direct way the τ lepton. The detector is...
