Brief overview of the sterile neutrino searches at reactors and release of the first results of the STEREO experiment.
Cosmological observations represent a powerful tool to constrain neutrino physics, complementary to laboratory experiments. In particular, observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) have the potential to constrain the properties of relic neutrinos, as well as of additional light relic particles in the Universe. I will present current constraints on neutrino properties, including...
Ultrahigh energy cosmic rays are the most energetic particles observed,
reaching orders of magnitude above the LHC energy range.
The Pierre Auger Observatory, located in Mendoza province, Argentina
is the largest Ultrahigh energy cosmic ray observatory in the world.
Since the start of operation in 2004 the Observatory has reached
unprecedented exposure and the high-quality data set spans...
DAMPE Mission and Its First Results
I will give a critical point of view on the theories trying to explain the DAMPE "excesses".
The discovery of gravitational waves produced by the coalescence of 10 solar mass black holes revived the possibility that the mysterious dark matter of the Universe might consist of primordial black holes (PBHs). I review the present constraints on the PBH abundance, discuss PBH production by single field inflation and present the predictions for the gravitational wave signals in this...
