Correlated Event-by-Event Fluctuations of Flow Harmonics in Pb-Pb Collisions at sNN = 2.76 TeV
We report the measurements of correlations between event-by-event fluctuations of amplitudes of anisotropic flow harmonics in nucleus-nucleus collisions, obtained for the first time using a new analysis method based on ...
φ-Meson production at forward rapidity in p–Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV and in pp collisions at √s = 2.76 TeV
The first study of φ-meson production in p–Pb collisions at forward and backward rapidity, at a nucleon– nucleon centre-of-mass energy √sNN = 5.02 TeV, has been performed with the ALICE apparatus at the LHC. The φ-mesons ...
J/ψ suppression at forward rapidity in Pb–Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV
The inclusive J/ψ production has been studied in Pb–Pb and pp collisions at the centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair √sNN = 5.02 TeV, using the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC. The J/ψ meson is reconstructed, in the ...
W and Z boson production in p-Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV
The W and Z boson production was measured via the muonic decay chan- nel in proton-lead collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider with the ALICE detector. The measurement covers backward (−4.46 < ycms < ...
Charged-particle multiplicities in proton–proton collisions at √s = 0.9 to 8 TeV
A detailed study of pseudorapidity densities and multiplicity distributions of primary charged particles pro- duced in proton–proton collisions, at √s = 0.9, 2.36, 2.76, 7 and 8 TeV, in the pseudorapidity range |η| < 2, ...
Determination of the event collision time with the ALICE detector at the LHC
Particle identification is an important feature of the ALICE detector at the LHC. In particular, for particle identification via the time-of-flight technique, the precise determination of the event collision time represents ...
Jet-like correlations with neutral pion triggers in pp and central Pb–Pb collisions at 2.76 TeV
We present measurements of two-particle correlations with neutral pion trigger particles of transverse momenta
Production of π0 and η mesons up to high transverse momentum in pp collisions at 2.76 TeV
The invariant differential cross sections for inclu- sive π0 and η mesons at midrapidity were measured in pp collisions at √s = 2.76 TeV for transverse momenta 0.4<pT<40GeV/cand0.6<pT<20GeV/c,respec- tively, using the ALICE ...
Enhanced production of multi-strange hadrons in high-multiplicity proton–proton collisions
At sufficiently high temperature and energy density, nuclear matter undergoes a transition to a phase in which quarks and gluons are not confined: the quark–gluon plasma (QGP)1. Such an exotic state of strongly interacting ...
K∗(892)0 and φ(1020) meson production at high transverse momentum in pp and Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV
The production of K∗(892)0 and φ(1020) mesons in proton-proton (pp) and lead-lead (Pb-Pb) collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV has been analyzed using a high luminosity data sample accumulated in 2011 with the ALICE detector at ...
