Discusses a call for the resignation of the government's science advisers issued by the group, Save British Science. Criticism of David Phillips, chairman of the Advisory Board for the Research Councils, leveled by John Sharpey-Schafer, who led the battle to keep the Nuclear Structure Facility open; Large Hadron Collider at the center for particle physics (CERN).

    In this paper we discuss the survival probability for exclusive central diffractive production of a colorless small size system at the LHC. This process has the clear signature of two large rapidity gaps. Using the eikonal approach for the description of soft interactions, we predict the value...

    The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), due to be commissioned in 2007, will provide particle physics with the first laboratory tool to access the energy frontier above 1 TeV. In order to achieve this, protons must be accelerated and stored at 7 TeV, colliding with an unprecedented luminosity of 1034...

    We study central Z-boson production accompanied by rapidity gaps on either side as a way to gauge Eggs weak boson fusion production at the LFIC. We analyse the possible backgrounds for the bb-decay mode and show that these can be substantially reduced. Special attention is paid to the evaluation...
