  1. 1. Impact of different primary particles on Geant4 simulation execution time - study on protons and pions

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

    Author : Rebecca Jigström Madeira; [2021]
    Keywords : Geant4; Monte Carlo method; Large Hadron Collider; simulation time; collider experiment; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) at CERN, an improvement to the LHC, scheduled to be operating in 2027, will further the potential for scientific breakthroughs in High Energy Physics. The project’s demand in computational resources, however, is predicted to exceed what will be available then. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigation of Autoencoders for Jet Images in Particle Physics

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik

    Author : Jessica Lastow; [2021]
    Keywords : data compression; anomaly detection; jet image; autoencoder; dark matter; machine learning; ATLAS; hadron jet; particle physics; high energy physics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Dark matter is an invisible type of matter believed to make up 85 % of the matter in the universe, but it has not yet been identified by experiments. According to certain particle physics theories, possible signatures of dark matter are so-called dark jets. They are the dark matter equivalent to classic jets, i.e collimated streams of particles.

  3. 3. Measurement of the snow accumulation in Antarctica with a neutrino radio detector and extension to the measurement of the index-of-refraction profile

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Högenergifysik

    Author : Jakob Beise; [2021]
    Keywords : Askaryan; UHE neutrinos; in-ice radio detection; in-situ detector calibration; deep learning; radio neutrino detector; ARIANNA;

    Abstract : High-energy neutrino physics offers a unique way to investigate the most violent phenomena in our universe. The detection of energies above E > 1017 eV is most efficient using the Askaryan effect, where a neutrino-induced particle shower produces coherent radio emission that is detectable with radio antennas.

  4. 4. Test setup for LDMX HCal readout

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

    Author : Joshua Greaves; [2020]
    Keywords : Dark matter; LDMX; dark photon; hadronic calorimeter; photomultiplier tube; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : It is evident from cosmological observations such as the Cosmic Microwave Background, and the motion of galaxies, that the universe consists of approximately 5 times more mass than visible matter can account for. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) will take a unique approach in its hunt for dark matter; it will look for missing momentum signals in electron collisions with a Tungsten target, and will be looking in the sub GeV energy range for evidence of dark matter interactions.

  5. 5. Execution time optimisation of a physics engine

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Jimmy Lundberg; [2020]
    Keywords : Physics engine optimisation;

    Abstract : This paper contains several suggestions of improvements for an existingin-house physics engine. It treats subjects such as mathematical simpli-fications, data dependencies, branching, broad phase collision detectionand data-oriented programming. The suggested improvements are testedwith two devices, a Samsung Galaxy A6 running on a ARM Cortex-A531. READ MORE
