  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. Autoencoder Compression in High Energy Physics

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

    Author : Sten Åstrand; [2022]
    Keywords : High energy physics; LHC; ATLAS; hadron jet; machine learning; autoencoder; dimensionality reduction; artificial intelligence; data compression; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Situated in Geneva, Switzerland, the Large Hadron Collider is largest particle accelerator in the world, and as such, its operation carries with it some of the greatest technical challenges ever faced. Among them are the huge demands put on data storage capacity by experiments in particle physics, both in terms of rate and volume of data. READ MORE

  4. 4. Projections for charm balance functions in heavy-ion collisions

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

    Author : Tilde Bonnevier Wallstedt; [2022]
    Keywords : Heavy-ion physics; quark-gluon plasma; QGP; balance function; charm quark; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis, pp collisions were simulated using PYTHIA. D+ D- and D0 D0bar balance functions were created in order to contribute with a reference point for future balance functions measured in real data from Pb-Pb collisions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Understanding Rt using two-particle correlations by simulating proton-proton collisions in a Monte-Carlo model

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

    Author : Johan Leygonie; [2021]
    Keywords : QGP; Quark-Gluon-Plasma; Rt; Particle Physics; Proton-proton Collisions; Pythia; Monte-Carlo Model; Bachelor s Thesis; Heavy-ion Collisions; ALICE; CERN; Relative Transverse Activity; Jets; Two-Particles Correlations; Quantum Physics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The observable Rt is investigated in the Monte Carlo Model Pythia in order to better understand results from experimental data obtained in the ALICE detector at CERN. The purpose is to reproduce the experiment in a simulation and use the features proposed by Pythia to dig into the unexpected outcomes. READ MORE
