This is the report of the cosmology and astroparticle physics working group at WHEPPXI. We present the discussions carried out during the workshop on selected topics in the above ﬁelds. The problems discussed concerned axions, infrared divergences in inﬂationary theories, supersonic bubbles in a ﬁrst-order electroweak phase transition, dark matter, MOND, interacting dark energy, composite Higgs models and statistical anisotropy of the Universe.

This is the report of the working group on neutrinos and beyond the Standard Model in WHEPP-XI.

This is a summary of the activities of the Physics at the LHC working group in the XIth Workshop on High Energy Physics Phenomenology (WHEPP-XI) held at the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India in January 2010. We discuss the activities of each sub-working group on physics issues at colliders such as Tevatron and Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The main issues discussed involve (1) results on W mass measurement and associated QCD uncertainties, (2) an attempt to understand the asymmetry measured at Tevatron in the top quark production, and (3) phenomenology of warped space dimension model.
pp 725-728 May 2011
We summarize the activities of the lattice gauge theory section of the working group activities in non-perturbative QCD.

I discuss LHC physics in the historical perspective of the progress in particle physics. After a recap of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, I discuss the high energy colliders leading up to LHC and their role in the discovery of these SM particles. Then I discuss the two main physics issues of LHC, i.e. Higgs mechanism and supersymmetry. I brieﬂy touch upon Higgs and SUSY searches at LHC along with their cosmological implications.
pp 757-766 May 2011
A basic introduction to the application of QCD at hadron colliders is presented. I brieﬂy review the phenomenological and theoretical origins of QCD, and then discuss factorization and infrared safety, parton distributions, the computation of hard scattering amplitudes and applications of perturbative QCD.
pp 767-781 May 2011
In this talk I shall begin by summarizing the importance of the Higgs physics studies at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I shall then give a short description of the pre-LHC constraints on the Higgs mass and the theoretical predictions for the LHC along with a discussion of the current experimental results, ending with prospects in the near future at the LHC. I have added to the writeup, recent experimental results from the LHC which have become available since the time of the workshop.
pp 783-794 May 2011
A brief review is ﬁrst given of the forms of dark matter that are hypothesized, and a summary of the basic observational evidence for dark matter is provided. Then a summary of recent results from indirect and direct detection dark matter search experiments is given. Some discussion is also done of MOND theories along with recent analysis of galaxy surface density data that provides some support for such theories.
pp 795-799 May 2011
This contribution is a brief review on the present status of axions and axion-like particles.
pp 801-809 May 2011
This talk discusses methods of extending lattice computations at ﬁnite temperature into regions of ﬁnite chemical potential, and the conditions under which such results from the lattice may be compared to experiments. Such comparisons away from a critical point are absolutely essential for quantitative use of lattice QCD in heavy-ion physics. An outline of various arguments which can then be used to locate the critical point is also presented.
