The high collision energies reached at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in
proton-proton, proton-lead and, in particular, lead-lead collisions, lead to significant
production rates of fragile objects, i.e. objects whose binding energies are small
compared to the average kinetic energy of the particles produced in the system.
Such objects are, for instance, light (anti-)nuclei and...
Determination of the nature of Dark Matter (DM) is one of the most fundamental problems of particle physics and cosmology. If DM is light enough and interacts with Standard Model particles directly or via some mediators with a strength beyond the gravitational one, it can be directly produced at the Large Hadron
Collider or future particle accelerators. The typical signature from DM...
