Measurements at the LHC have already reached a remarkable precision. This opens up new opportunities for New Physics searches. However, the accuracy of experimental data must be matched by the theoretical one. In this talk, I will discuss recent progress in precision QCD predictions.

Densities in neutron star cores can reach up to ten times the density of a normal atomic nucleus, and the stabilising effect of gravitational confinement permits long-timescale weak interactions. This generates matter that is neutron-rich, and opens up the possibility of stable states of strange matter, something that can only exist in neutron stars. Our uncertainty about the nature of...

The presentation will concentrate on recent applications with exciting results of Penning traps in atomic and nuclear physics with cooled and stored exotic ions. These are high-accuracy atomic mass measurements of short-lived radionuclides, *g*-factor determinations of the bound-electron in highly-charged, hydrogen-like ions and *g*-factor as well as mass measurements of the proton and...

I will discuss the status of the present effort exploring the QCD phase diagram. Emphasis will be given on the measurement and interpretation of correlations and fluctuation and its implication for the possible existence of high density phase in QCD.
