Summary and highlights of the 14th Topical Conference on Hadron Collider Physics (HCP2002)

Description: First of all, I would like to thank the scientific committee, the conference organizers, the University of Karlsruhe and the Institute for Experimental Nuclear Physics, all of the speakers, and the conference secretariat, for making this an extremely well-organized and uniformly high-quality meeting. I would also like to thank all of the speakers who provided me with material for my talk before and during the conference. There is obviously no point in these proceedings in attempting to repeat all of the material from the individual contributions; by definition, these are all available earlier in this volume. In the written version, therefore, I will try to give a high level overview of the current state of hadron collider physics and to highlight the connections between the many presentations at this conference.

Jet algorithms at D0

Description: The D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider ({radical}s = 1.8 TeV) accumulated a large sample of high energy jet production data during Run 1 (1992-1996). Since March 2001, D0 has engaged in continuous data collection with an upgraded detector equipped for the higher energy ({radical}s = 1.96 TeV) and luminosity conditions of the Run 2 Tevatron. We summarize here pivotal measurements of Run 1 and consider their comparison to theoretical predictions and to other experiments. These factors elucidate D0's jet clustering algorithm strategy for Run 2 jet measurements. Preliminary measurements of jets from the Run 2 D0 experiment are also presented.

Report of the subgroup on alternative models and new ideas

Description: We summarize some of the work done by the P3 subgroup on Alternative Models and New Ideas. The working group covered a broad range of topics including a constrained Standard Model from an extra dimension, a discussion of recent ideas addressing the strong CP problem, searches for doubly charged higgs bosons in e{gamma} collisions, and an update on discovery limits for extra neutral gauge bosons at hadron colliders. The breadth of topics rejects the many ideas and approaches to physics beyond the Standard Model.

Description: Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is developing ''React & Wind'' designs and technology for building long high field accelerator magnets. This paper presents the R&D program for interaction region (IR) magnets made with ''Rutherford'' cable for the luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This paper will introduce a few new end design concepts that make the bend radius of the cable in the end independent of the coil aperture. These designs are suitable for building magnets with ''React & Wind'' technology.

Heavy baryons - Recent and very new results

Description: Recent results on observations, properties and decay modes of the charmed and beauty baryons will be reviewed. Candidates for several new high mass states which include a cleanly-identified daughter {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} baryon are seen in data from the SELEX experiment at Fermilab. These states are candidates for doubly-charmed baryons: a {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++} state and a {Xi}{sub cc}{sup +} state. These candidates are more than 5{sigma} signals in each case at masses of 3520 and 3460 MeV respectively.

Snowmass 2001: Jet energy flow project

Description: Conventional cone jet algorithms arose from heuristic considerations of LO hard scattering coupled to independent showering. These algorithms implicitly assume that the final states of individual events can be mapped onto a unique set of jets that are in turn associated with a unique set of underlying hard scattering partons. Thus each final state hadron is assigned to a unique underlying parton. The Jet Energy Flow (JEF) analysis described here does not make such assumptions. The final states of individual events are instead described in terms of flow distributions of hadronic energy. Quantities of physical interest are constructed from the energy flow distribution summed over all events. The resulting analysis is less sensitive to higher order perturbative corrections and the impact of showering and hadronization than the standard cone algorithms.

Evidence for light scalar resonances in charm meson decays from Fermilab E791

Description: From Dalitz-plot analyses of D{sup +} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +} and D{sup +} {yields} K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +} decays, we find evidence for light and broad scalar resonances {sigma}(500) and {kappa}(800). From a Dalitz-plot analysis of D{sub s}{sup +} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +} decays, they measure the masses and decay widths of the scalar resonances f{sub 0}(980) and f{sub 0}(1370).

Supersymmetric Higgs Boson Pair Production: Discovery Prospects at Hadron Colliders

Description: We study the potential of hadron colliders in the search for the pair production of neutral Higgs bosons in the framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. We perform a detailed signal and background analysis, working out efficient kinematical cuts for the extraction of the signal. The important role of squark loop contributions to the signal is re-emphasized. If the signal is sufficiently enhanced by these contributions, it could even be observable at the next run of the upgraded Tevatron collider in the near future. At the LHC the pair production of light and heavy Higgs bosons might be detectable simultaneously.

Hadron mass scaling in Regge phenomenology

Description: The authors show that Regge phenomenology is consistent with the only scaling law for the hadron masses, M{sup *}/M = ({alpha}{prime}/{alpha}{prime}{sup *}){sup 1/2}, where asterisk indicates a finite-temperature quantity. Phenomenological models further suggest the following expression of the above scaling in terms of the temperature-dependent gluon condensate: M{sup *}/M = ({alpha}{prime}/{alpha}{prime}{sup *}){sup 1/2} = (<G{sub {mu}{nu}}{sup {alpha}}>{sup *}/<G{sup {alpha}{mu}{nu}}>){sup 1/4}.

Status of CDF Run II Upgrade

Description: For the past several years, the CDF collaboration has been upgrading its detector to accommodate the higher luminosity and beam energy expected during Run II (2001-2006) at the Tevatron p{bar p} collider. Accelerator improvements include increasing the instantaneous luminosity by an order of magnitude with respect to Run I to 2 x 10{sup 32} cm{sup {minus}2} s{sup {minus}1} and increasing the center of mass energy from 1.8 TeV to 2.0 TeV. The detector upgrades include replacing the entire tracking volume, extending the muon coverage, adding a time of flight system, and improving the selection capabilities of the trigger. The partially instrumented detector underwent a commissioning run during September/October 2000 in preparation for starting data taking in Spring 2001 with the full detector. Now that Run II has been extended through 2006, we expect to collect an integrated luminosity of 2 fb{sup {minus}1} during the first two years of running and up to a total of 15 fb{sup {minus}1} by the end of Run II.

The BTeV pixel detector and trigger system

Description: BTeV is an approved forward collider experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron dedicated to the precision studies of CP violation, mixing, and rare decays of beauty and charm hadrons. The BTeV detector has been designed to achieve these goals. One of the unique features of BTeV is a state-of-the-art pixel detector system, designed to provide accurate measurements of the decay vertices of heavy flavor hadrons that can be used in the first trigger level. The pixel vertex detector and the trigger design are described. Recent results on some of the achievements in the R and D effort are presented.
