Over previous runs we've found significant discrepancies between our data and the most advanced hadronic interaction models, which are used to model how cosmic rays shower down onto the Earth when they interact with our atmosphere," Bonechi said.
In the middle volume of a three-volume set of textbooks for a series of courses that replaced the traditional course of theoretical physics, Maiani illustrates the conceptual route that led to the unification of the weak and electromagnetic interactions, starting from the identification of the weak hadronic current with the isotopic spin current; through the conserved vector current hypothesis of Fenman, Gell-Mann, and others; to Yang-Mills theory and to the first electroweak theory of Glashow.

String theory may be exactly that, a theory, but it has nevertheless strongly influenced thinking in such fields of research as high energy and hadronic physics, gravitation, cosmology, mathematical physics and even condensed matter physics.

Objective: One of the fundamental questions in the field of high-energy physics is what are the properties of strongly interacting matter at high temperature or density, when one expects a transition from hadronic degrees of freedom to deconfined matter, quark-gluon plasma (QGP), where the degrees of freedom are quarks and gluons.
