The upgrade of the ALICE Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is an essential part of the experiment's preparation for the LHC Run 3 starting in 2021. The production of the new readout detectors has been practically completed; the detectors will be installed in the TPC in a few months from now. The Gas Electron Multiplier technology, on which they are based, will enable us to operate the TPC in...

It is proposed to model the local kinetic equilibration in finite systems of fermions and bosons based on a nonlinear diffusion equation [1,2]. It properly accounts for their quantum-statistical characteristics, and is solved exactly. The solution is suited to replace the linear relaxation ansatz that has often been used in the literature. The microscopic transport coefficients are...

The Standard Model as a very succesful theory of electroweak interactions postulates the basic assumption about the pure "V(ector)-A(xial vector)" character of the interaction. Nevertheless, even after more than half a century of development of the model and experimental testing of its fundamental ingredients, experimental data still rule out the existence of other types of weak interactions...

$\Upsilon$ states can be used to study the properties of the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy-ion collisions. At sufficiently high temperature, $\Upsilon$ mesons dissociate in the plasma as a result of the Debye-like screening of the strong force. Due to their different binding energies, the ground and excited $\Upsilon$ states are expected to dissociate in a sequential pattern. However,...

The high precision measurement of a two solar mass neutron star, gives a strong constrain to the equation of state (EOS) of several models describing such dense objects. While more data and recent experimental observations reduce the allowed phase space, the appearance of hyperons inside the neutron star core is still a discussed scenario. For all these EOS the interaction of the hyperon...
