Study of the energy dependence of the underlying event in proton-antiproton collisions


CDF Collaboration; Aaltonen, T A; Amerio, S; Amidei, D E; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B; et al (2015). Study of the energy dependence of the underlying event in proton-antiproton collisions. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 92:092009.

Abstract

We study charged particle production $(pT > 0.5  GeV/c, \eta <0.8)$ in proton-antiproton collisions at total center-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s} = 300  GeV$, 900 GeV, and 1.96 TeV. We use the direction of the charged particle with the largest transverse momentum in each event to define three regions of $\eta - \phi$ space: “toward”, “away”, and “transverse.” The average number and the average scalar pT sum of charged particles in the transverse region are sensitive to the modeling of the “underlying event.” The transverse region is divided into a MAX and MIN transverse region, which helps separate the “hard component” (initial and final-state radiation) from the “beam-beam remnant” and multiple parton interaction components of the scattering. The center-of-mass energy dependence of the various components of the event is studied in detail. The data presented here can be used to constrain and improve QCD Monte Carlo models, resulting in more precise predictions at the LHC energies of 13 and 14 TeV.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
