Measurement of Quarkonium Polarization to Probe QCD at the by Valentin Knünz

By Valentin Knünz

This thesis discusses intimately the dimension of the polarizations of all S-wave vector quarkonium states in LHC proton-proton collisions with the CMS detector. Heavy quarkonium states represent a fantastic laboratory to check non-perturbative results of quantum chromodynamics and to appreciate how quarks bind into hadrons.
The experimental effects are interpreted via an unique phenomenological procedure, which ends up in a coherent photo of quarkonium construction move sections and polarizations inside of an easy version, ruled by means of one unmarried color-octet creation mechanism. those findings offer new insights into the dynamics of heavy quarkonium construction on the LHC, a huge step in the direction of a passable realizing of hadron formation in the common version of particle physics.

Evolutionary Multi-Agent Systems: From Inspirations to Applications

This e-book addresses agent-based computing, concentrating particularly on evolutionary multi-agent platforms (EMAS), which were constructed in view that 1996 on the AGH college of technological know-how and know-how in Cracow, Poland. It offers the correct history info on and an in depth description of this computing paradigm, in addition to key experimental effects.

India-Pakistan Trade Normalisation: The Unfinished Economic Agenda

This booklet explores the incomplete India–Pakistan alternate normalisation schedule (building upon the topics lined within the booklet “India-Pakistan alternate: Strengthening monetary kin” released by means of Springer in 2014) and discusses the stairs that needs to be undertaken so that it will flow the bilateral engagement ahead.

Drip and sprinkler irrigation

The ebook Drip and Sprinkler Irrigation is meant as a textual content publication of micro irrigation layout and practices for the scholars of the rural sciences and the pros and staff within the box of micro irrigation. The ebook discusses the sort and parts, hydraulics and layout, install and upkeep of micro irrigation method.

Prudentius and the landscapes of late antiquity

This paintings considers the illustration of the geographical and cultural landscapes of past due antiquity within the paintings of the Latin poet Prudentius. It argues that his use of allusion to Augustan and early imperial Latin authors offers those landscapes as being marked by way of the arriving of Christianity, although protecting the grandeur of the pagan prior.

Example text

The definitions of the polar angle ϑ and azimuthal angle ϕ are shown in Fig. 9 (top). The decay angles are defined as the angles of the positive lepton with respect to the reference frame, whose x-z plane is defined by the production plane (bottom left), built by joining the momentum vector of the quarkonium state with the momentum vector of the colliding beams (b1c and b2c ), in the laboratory frame. The y axis is defined to be perpendicular to the production plane, in the direction of b1r × b2r and b2r × b1r , with b1r and b2r defined in the quarkonium rest frame, for positive and negative rapidities, respectively.

3 Ambiguity of Pre-LHC Quarkonium Polarization Measurements The importance of following this methodology can be shown on the basis of the prompt J/ψ polarization analysis from CDF [43], which is shown in the left panel of Fig. 7. This measurement has been conducted before the development of the methodology as described in this section. Consequentially, the analysis was performed integrating over the azimuthal component of the decay, only providing the parameter λϑ , only in the HX frame, neither providing information about the ˜ which azimuthal anisotropy, nor providing frame-invariant information through λ, was not known at the time of the measurement.
