Type: Talk Session: Quarks and gluons in hot and dense matter
Track: 1) Quarks and gluons in hot and dense matter
Suppression of $J/\psi$ production in heavy-ion collisions due to color screening of quark and antiquark potential in the deconfined medium has been proposed as a signature of quark-gluon plasma (QGP) formation. However, there are other effects that may alter the observed $J/\psi$ yields, such as cold nuclear matter effects, and statistical coalescence of c-$\bar{\mathrm{c}}$ pairs. Indeed, recent ... More

We study the effects of the decuplet-octet mass difference for the baryon axial vector current at one-loop order in large-Nc baryon chiral perturbation theory, where Nc is the number of color. The baryon axial vector current is considered within the combined framework of large-Nc baryon chiral perturbation theory and the baryon axial vector couplings are extracted. We extend the g_A analysis by in ... More

Pb nuclei, accelerated at LHC, are sources of strong electromagnetic fields that can be used to measure photon-induced interactions in a new kinematic regime. These interactions can be studied in ultra-peripheral p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions where impact parameters are larger than the sum of nuclear radii and hadronic interactions are strongly suppressed. Heavy quarkonium photoproduction is of pa ... More

I will describe a chiral infinite tension limit of the RNS superstring, known as ambitwistor string theory, which provides a powerful point of view on tree-level Yang-Mills and gravity amplitudes in arbitrary dimensions.

Anisotropies of the azimuthal hadron distributions measured in nuclear collisions at highest energies carry information about the anisotropies of collective transverse expansion. Through a comparison of these data with hydrodynamic simulations one hopes to extract transport coefficients of the hot nuclear matter. It is widely accepted that the flow anisotropies have their root in strong inhomogene ... More

The foundations of the modern quantum theory of electro-magnetic radiation and its interaction with medium are constituted by the Einstein's theory of photo-effect and the theory of the Compton effect.

With the advent of low-threshold detectors that look for neutrino scattering at sub-keV energy deposition, the sensitivity to possible neutrino electromagnetic moments can be further increased. As such low energies start to overlap with atomic scales, it is necessary to take atomic binding effects into account so that detector responses can be understood more reliably.

A complete picture of collinear nucleon spin structure, at leading twist, requires knowledge of three types of parton distribution functions (PDFs): the unpolarized PDFs; the helicity PDFs; and the transversity PDF, the net transverse polarization of quarks within a transversely polarized nucleon. Of the three, transversity is the most difficult to probe due to its chiral-odd nature. Current knowl ... More

Gravitational accretion of dark matter in neutron stars may constitute a mechanism to check for further indirect effects of its existence. In this way, dark matter annihilations taking place within such compact astrophysical objects may prevent the appearance of additional particle population of hadrons inside the neutron star core. We discuss on the experimental consequences of this possibility.

If studies of electroweak gauge boson final states at the Large Hadron Collider, for Standard Model physics and beyond, are sensitive to effects of the initial state's transverse momentum distribution, appropriate generalizations of QCD shower evolution are required. We propose a method to do this based on QCD transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorization at high energy. The method incorpo ... More

The transverse momentum distributions (pT) of charged particles and identi ed hadrons in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV have been measured by ALICE at the LHC. Charged-particle tracks are reconstructed at mid-rapidity over a large momentum range 0.15 < pT < 50 GeV/c. Light-flavoured hadrons and resonances are identi ed in the various momentum ranges from 0.15 GeV/c up to 15 GeV/c by u ... More

The Sivers function $f^{\perp}_{1T}$ describes the correlation of parton transverse momentum with the transverse spin of the nucleon. There is evidence of a quark Sivers effect in semi-inclusive DIS (SIDIS) measurements. In SIDIS, the quark Sivers function is associated with a final state effect from the gluon exchange between the struck quark and the target nucleon remnants. On the other hand, ... More

COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS M2 beam line, taking data since year 2002. Part of its physics programme is dedicated to study the transverse spin and the transverse momentum structure of the nucleon using semi- inclusive deeply inelastic lepton scattering (SIDIS). For these measurements, data have been collected using transversely polarised proton (NH3) and deuteron (6LiD) ta ... More

The dependence of the spectra shape of produced charged hadrons on the size of a colliding system is discussed using a two component model. As a result, the hierarchy by the system-size in the spectra shape is observed. Next, the extension of the two component model accounting for the 'collective flow' using recent theoretical calculations is suggested to describe the spectra of charged particles ... More

Ultra-slow muons, which are positively charged muons having an energy of a few eV, are useful tools for producing variable-energy muon beams with extraordinarily small energy spread by accelerating them through an electrostatic field. We will apply this new technique to a measurement of the muon anomalous magnetic moment g-2 and electric dipole moment at J-PARC [1], which requires an intense muon ... More

The Ultracold Neutron Facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center has developed one of the highest density sources of UCN in the world to perform precision measurements of neutron decay observables. The UCNA collaboration has recently published a sub-percent measurement of the beta-asymmetry, A0 = -0.11954 ± 55(stat) ± 98(sys), used to extract λ = gA/gV = -1.2756 ± 30, the ratio of the a ...

The $U_L(2)\bigotimes U_R(2)$ gauge model for the unified theory of the electromagnetic and weak interactions which is free from the auxiliary self-interaction scalar field is developed. Due to breaking the initial symmetry, the $SU_L(2)\bigotimes U_R(1)$ Lagrangian is derived\cite{1}. The obtained $SU_L(2)\bigotimes U_R(1)$ Lagrangian contains all the terms corresponding to the free b ... More

OLYMPUS, an experiment designed to quantify the contribution of two-photon exchange to the proton form factor discrepancy, completed data taking in early 2013. About 4 fb-1 of data were collected, running with a 2.01 GeV stored lepton beam of alternating charge impinging on an internal hydrogen gas target. The analysis e ffort has progressed signi cantly with data spanning an accepted kinematic ra ... More

The Tile Calorimeter (TileCal) is the central hadronic calorimeter of the ATLAS experiment at LHC. Around 2023, after the upgrade of the LHC (High Luminosity LHC, phase 2) the peak luminosity will increase by a factor of 5 compared to the design value (10^34 cm^-2 s^-1), thus requiring an upgrade of the TileCal readout electronics. Except the 9852 photomultipliers (PMTs), most of the on- and off-d ... More

Due to color screening, the production of quarkonia in high energy heavy ion collisions is expected to be sensitive to the energy density of the medium. Sequential suppression of different quarkonium states may therefore serve as a thermometer of the medium. Although the suppression of charmonia was anticipated as a key signature of the QGP, the observed energy dependence of $J/\psi$ suppression i ... More

Vector Boson + Jets production measurements are tests of perturbative QCD calculations and PDFs. Hence these measurements provide us chances to veri fied MC generators and the background modeling techniques of many searches. We will present measurements of the vector boson + jet production in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV and 8 TeV, using the data collected with the CMS detector. The resul ... More
