From Matter to Dark Matter and Dark Energy

From Matter to Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Abstract: I will review the recent experimental and theoretical progresses made on the spectroscopy and decay properties of the standard and non-conventional (exotic) hadrons emphasizing on the works by our phenomenology group. I will discuss how our predictions on the existence or some parameters of some hadronic states have been confirmed by important experiments or we were one of the groups that could clarify the physical properties of some newly discovered resonances, fix their quantum numbers and give them an “identity card”. I will continue with properties of hadrons at hot and dense medium, which are useful to get knowledge on the properties of matter under extreme conditions, transition to Quark-Gluon Plasma as possible new phase of matter and structure of the dense astrophysical objects like neutron stars. I will address some recent significant deviations of the experimental data from the SM predictions on some weak decays of hadrons, which may be considered as serious indications of new physics effects. I will give some examples of the electromagnetic, weak and strong decays of hadrons with emphasizing on the electromagnetic form factors of nucleons and their geometric shape. Finally, I will briefly discuss the “theoretical quark fusion” as probable source of energy in future, “S-Sexaquark” as a candidate for dark matter; and QCD nature of dark energy and its cosmological implications.
