A new distribution is obtained from a convolution of the Generalized Multiplicity Distribution (GMD) with the Negative Binomial Distribution (NBD). This distribution models the charged particle production from hard and soft processes, with comparisons made with other multiplicity distribution models. A phenomenologically analogous Lee-Yang phase transition is examined using the new model.

Using a viscosity-based survival scale for geometrical perturbations formed in the early stages of relativistic heavy-ion collisions, we model the radial flow velocity during freeze-out. Subsequently, we employ the Cooper-Frye freeze-out prescription, with first-order viscous corrections to the distribution function, to obtain the transverse momentum distribution of particle yields and flow harmon ...

In the context of data modeling and comparisons between different fit models, Bayesian analysis calls that model best which has the largest evidence, the prior-weighted integral of the likelihood function over model parameters.

Production of heavy photons (Drell-Yan), gauge bosons, Higgs bosons, heavy flavors, which is treated within the QCD parton model as a result of hard parton-parton collision, should be treated as a bremsstrahlung process seeing in the rest frame of the target.

This includes exclusive production of J/psi, psi' and rho^0 mesons as well as production of two pions, two leptons, two photons or two charged Higgs bosons. In the case of the charmonia a k_t-factorization method with unintegrated gluon distributions is applied. A possible sign of the ... More

The aim of the NA61/SHINE ion programme is to explore the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter. The main physics goals are the study of the onset of deconfinement and the search for the critical point of strongly interacting matter. These goals are pursued by performing an beam momentum (13A - 158A GeV/c) and system size (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La) scan. This contribution reviews r ... More

Measurements of soft particle production have provided valuable insight on properties of the evolution of the quark-gluon plasma in Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC. In particular, measurements of flow harmonics using the azimuthal angle distributions of low-pT particles directly test hydrodynamic model descriptions of its evolution. The large acceptance of the ATLAS detector enables the measurement of ... More

Starting from the Boltzmann equation in the relaxation time approximation and employing a Chapman-Enskog like expansion for the distribution function close to equilibrium, we derive second-order evolution equations for the shear stress tensor and the dissipative charge current for a system of massless quarks and gluons. The transport coefficients are obtained exactly using quantum statistics for t ... More

The study of strange and multi-strange particle production in high-energy collisions of heavy nuclei is considered as as unique tool to investigate the properties of the hot and dense matter created in the course of collision. These processes are sensitive to the reaction dynamics, as there is no net strangeness content in the initial state of colliding nuclei. In particular, an enhanced productio ... More

For the first time we investigate non-equilibrium dynamic properties of a plasma consisting of confining gluons resulting from Gribov quantization [1]. For this purpose we employ the infrared-improved Gribov dispersion relation of gluons in the kinetic theory setup in the relaxation time approximation and determine the exact in- and out-of-equilibrium evolution of the system. In the static case t ... More

Several measurements performed by the ATLAS collaboration are either useful to constrain the proton structure or are affected by its associated uncertainties. Measurements of the W+c production and the inclusive W and Z differential cross sections are found to constrain the poorly known strange-quark density at low x. Similarly, the ratio of W+/W- production is found to constrain the valence ... More

We report on recent searches for baryonic B decays using the whole BABAR dataset of 471 million B anti-B pairs. Although about 7% of all B decays have baryons in the final state, known exclusive decay modes account for only about 10% of these decays, and very little is known about the mechanism of baryon production in weak decays or in the hadronization process. By studing such decays we can ... More

The transverse momentum spectra of hadrons produced in high energy collisions can be decomposed into the two components: the exponential ("thermal") and the power ("hard") ones. Thus, charged hadron spectra produced in proton-proton and heavy-ion collisions from ISR to LHC are considered simultaneously within this model.

Recent observations of ridge-like structure in p-p and p-A angular correlations at the RHIC and LHC are interpreted to imply collective motion in smaller systems. It is argued that if correlations representing flows in A-A collisions appear in smaller systems collectivity must extend to the smaller systems. But the argument could be reversed to conclude that such structures appearing in A-A collis ... More
