Where is Particle Physics Going? / Ellis, John (King's Coll. London ; CERN)
The answer to the question in the title is: in search of new physics beyond the Standard Model, for which there are many motivations, including the likely instability of the electroweak vacuum, dark matter, the origin of matter, the masses of neutrinos, the naturalness of the hierarchy of mass scales, cosmological inflation and the search for quantum gravity [...]

Continuum limit and universality of the Columbia plot / de Forcrand, Philippe (ETH, Zurich (main) ; CERN) ; D'Elia, Massimo (INFN, Pisa ; Pisa U.)
Results on the thermal transition of QCD with 3 degenerate flavors, in the lower-left corner of the Columbia plot, are puzzling. [...]

A Worm Algorithm for the Lattice CP(N-1) Model / Rindlisbacher, Tobias (Zurich, ETH) ; de Forcrand, Philippe (Zurich, ETH ; CERN)
The CP(N-1) model in 2D is an interesting toy model for 4D QCD as it possesses confinement, asymptotic freedom and a non-trivial vacuum structure. [...]

Dark Matter "Transporting" Mechanism Explaining Positron Excesses / Kim, Doojin (CERN) ; Park, Jong-Chul (Chungnam Natl. U.) ; Shin, Seodong (Yonsei U.)
We propose a novel mechanism to explain the positron excesses, which are observed by satellite-based telescopes including PAMELA and AMS-02, in dark matter (DM) scenarios. [...]

On the Octonionic Self Duality equations of 3-brane Instantons / Floratos, Emmanuel (Democritos Nucl. Res. Ctr. ; Athens, U. ; CERN) ; Leontaris, George K. (CERN ; Ioannina U.)
We study the octonionic selfduality equations for $p=3$-branes in the light cone gauge and we construct explicitly, instanton solutions for spherical and toroidal topologies in various flat spacetime dimensions $(D=5+1,7+1,8+1,9+1)$, extending previous results for $p=2$ membranes. [...]

Topics in Higgs Physics / Ellis, John (King's Coll. London ; CERN)
These lecture notes review the theoretical background to the Higgs boson, provide an introduction to its phenomenology, and describe the experimental tests that lead us to think that "beyond any reasonable doubt, it is a Higgs boson". [...]

We analyze the modular properties of D3-brane instanton corrections to the hypermultiplet moduli space in type IIB string theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau threefold. [...]

Four-derivative couplings and BPS dyons in heterotic CHL orbifolds / Bossard, Guillaume (Ecole Polytechnique, CPHT) ; Cosnier-Horeau, Charles (Ecole Polytechnique, CPHT ; UPMC, Paris (main) ; Paris, LPTHE) ; Pioline, Boris (UPMC, Paris (main) ; Paris, LPTHE ; CERN)
Three-dimensional string models with half-maximal supersymmetry are believed to be invariant under a large U-duality group which unifies the S and T dualities in four dimensions. [...]

Detecting kinematic boundary surfaces in phase space and particle mass measurements in SUSY-like events
We critically examine the classic endpoint method for particle mass determination, focusing on difficult corners of parameter space, where some of the measurements are not independent, while others are adversely affected by the experimental resolution. [...]
