Recently the ATLAS collaboration has published the results of searching for new resonances in the decay channel into a Z, W, or Higgs boson and a photon. The Z, W, and Higgs bosons were reconstructed in the hadron decay channel. The search for the resonances was performed using the data on the proton–proton interactions at the cms energy of 13 TeV corresponding to 36.1 fb-1, which were collected during the operation of the ATLAS detector at the LHC over the period of 2016–2017.
Accounting seminar by Bruna de Oliveira Stahlhöfer from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil
Another accounting seminar was held within the framework of the JINR Summer Student Programme. It was given by Bruna de Oliveira Stahlhöfer from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Her training ended with the report "Investigation of Deep Learning methods for the classification of events in the NOvA experiment", which she delivered at the DLNP Elementary Particle Physics Department last Thursday (supervisors Christopher Kullenberg and Oleg Samoilov).
A traditional understanding of Latin phrases is not always quite correct. An example is the phrase “mens sana in corpore sano” considered to mean “a sound mind in a sound body”. Taken from Juvenal’s satire, it turns out to be quoted out of context and in no way means that the one who maintains bodily health thus maintains one’s mental health.
The first meeting of the working group for development of the JINR development strategy till 2030 in particle physics
The working group for particle physics held its first meeting to discuss the JINR development strategy till 2030. The participants were V.A. Bednyakov, D.V. Naumov, N.A. Russakovich, A.B. Arbuzov, Marek Drzebabek (Poland), and Eliezer Rabinovich (Israel).
In the Oval Room, Viktor Vasilievich Katrasev, Chairman of the Public Chamber of Dubna, met with the DLNP staff.He spoke about the working priorities of the Public Chamber, such as the public control of activities within the Socio-Economic Development Strategy for the science town of Dubna in 2017–2026, implementation of the programme for repair of stairwells in apartment houses and overall improvements of yards, and organization of public discussions of socially important issues and projects, and answered the questions of those present.
Two new numerically controlled machine tools manufactured by the Haas Automation company are set in the DLNP workshop, and their pre-starting procedure is under way. How long have we been waiting for that renewal of our decades’ old machine tool stock! More photos here and here.
On 11 August, Denis Uzhva from St. Petersburg State University, the first of the students who came to JINR within the Summer Student Programme, completed his practical training. The trainings within the Summer Student Programme are six to eight weeks long. Students come to JINR until September for a period agreed upon with their scientific supervisors from JINR, but the traditional beginning is in June.
The LAV Productions company completes shooting the Technogenics programme for the Discovery Russia Channel, in which one of the episodes is about the Baksan Neutrino Observatory. The shooting team visited our laboratory to learn about the prospects for neutrino studies in Russia and in the world. More photos are here.
