  1. 1. Forward-Backward Multiplicity Correlations for Proton-Proton Collisions with ALICE at LHC-CERN

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : August Koppers; [2022]
    Keywords : ALICE; Particle physics; CERN; LHC; QCD; pp collisions; Lund string model; Two particle correlation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the study of two-particle pseudorapidity correlations in pp-collisions at √s = 13 TeV using the ALICE detector at LHC, CERN. The correlation function was calculated as a function of multiplicity and was repeated for several multiplicity classes and different charge combinations in the forward-backward and central regions of the detector, respectively.

  2. 2. Non-perturbative models of diffractive hadronic collisions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Edgars Karnickis; [2022]
    Keywords : diffractive process; proton-proton collision; elastic; parton; PDF; saturation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a new model for diffractive proton-proton collisions is presented. Interpreting protons as systems of many partons, we treat diffraction in terms of elastic interactions between the partons of the colliding protons. READ MORE

  3. 3. Constraining Physics Beyond the Standard Model with Emerging Jets using the ATLAS Experiment

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Simon Thor; [2022]
    Keywords : ATLAS; CERN; particle physics; simulation; Python; C ; standard model; emerging jets; long-lived particles;

    Abstract : Dark matter, the unknown matter that constitutes 85% of all matter in the universe, is one of the greatest mysteries in fundamental physics. One theory that might explain dark matter predicts that there are long-lived particles known as dark pions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fire Risk and Hazard Analysis of Lithium-Ion Battery Technologies in Underground Facilities: A Literature Review

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Sean Meehan; [2022]
    Keywords : lithium-ion battery; hazards; risks; thermal runaway; detection; fire protection; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The past decades have seen an exponential growth of the lithium-ion battery (LIB) market as use of this high-energy storage has found applications in nearly every industry. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is interested in implementing this technology within their underground network and this literature review is intended to assist with addressing fire and safety concerns.

  5. 5. Spin correlations in top quark pair production at the Large Hadron Collider

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Simon Ahlstedt; [2022]
    Keywords : Top quarks; Top quark pair production; LHC; Spin correlations; [email protected]; Dilepton decay channel; Leading order; Interference effects; Event generation.; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this work we investigate the spin correlation effect of the interference between signal and irreducible background events present in top quark pair production at the LHC at LO in the dilepton channel. To simulate the high energy proton-proton collisions of the LHC, [email protected] framework is used as an event generator. READ MORE
