Recent Activity at INT:

Neutron-Antineutron Oscillations: Appearance, Disappearance, and Baryogenesis (INT-17-69W)
(INT Workshop October 23 - 27, 2017)

Reported by K. Babu, Z. Berezhiani, Y. Kamyshkov, B. Kerbikov
Reported on November 15, 2017
Goal of workshop was the discussion of the current status of neutron oscillation phenomena between theory and experiment in relation with two outstanding questions of particle physics and cosmology: understanding of baryogenesis (mechanism of matter-antimatter asymmetry of universe) and understanding the nature of Dark Matter.

Spatial and Momentum Tomography of Hadrons and Nuclei (INT-17-3)
(INT Program August 28 - September 29, 2017)

Reported by I. Cloët, K. Hafidi, Z-E. Meziani, B. Pasquini
Reported on November 3, 2017
The last decade or so has seen the development of a comprehensive approach to the description of hadron and nuclear structure. This framework encodes our knowledge of hadrons and nuclei in the Wigner distributions of the fundamental constituents − quarks and gluons − whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD).

Neutrinoless Double-beta Decay (INT-17-2a)
(INT Program June 13 - July 14, 2017)

Reported by J. Engel, J. Carlson and V. Cirigliano
Reported on July 28, 2017
Experimental groups worldwide are working to develop detectors that may allow the observation of neutrinoless double-beta decay in isotopes such as 76Ge, 136Xe, 130Te, and 82Se. Observation would have far reaching consequences: it would prove that lepton number is violated, demonstrate that neutrinos are Majorana particles, and provide information about the neutrino-mass generation mechanism and possibly about baryogenesis.
