The measurement of the production cross section ratio of identified hadrons and the calibration of the magnetic distortion in RICH1 at LHCb

Abstract:

Physics measurements at the LHC rely on the imulation of the proton-proton interaction to estimate detector performance and physics ackgrounds. Therefore, a good understanding of ll the processes involved is crucial to the final precision of any measurement. Monte Carlo event generators try to provide a realistic description of the proton-proton collision by combining the theoretical models describing different stages of the interaction process. Within this framework, the baryon number tra...
