SmallX Qcd Calculations With A Biased Ensemble, Gary Kapilevich
SmallX Qcd Calculations With A Biased Ensemble, Gary Kapilevich
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
In this dissertation, I will argue that we can study functional fluctuations in unintegrated gluon distributions, in the MV model as well as JIMWLK, using reweighting techniques, which will allow me to calculate QCD observables with "biased ensembles". This technique will enable me to study rare functional configurations of the gluon distributions, that might have been selected for in, for example, the centrality criteria used by the ATLAS and ALICE collaborations. After a review of these techniques, as well as a review of QCD physics at high energy in general, I will use biased ensembles to compute observables in two ...
Yields Of Weakly Bound Light Nuclei As A Probe Of The Statistical Hadronization Model, Yiming Cai, Thomas D. Cohen, Boris A. Gelman, Yukari Yamauchi
Yields Of Weakly Bound Light Nuclei As A Probe Of The Statistical Hadronization Model, Yiming Cai, Thomas D. Cohen, Boris A. Gelman, Yukari Yamauchi
Publications and Research
The statistical hadronization model successfully describes the yields of hadrons and light nuclei from central heavyion collisions over a wide range of energies. It is a simple and efficient phenomenological framework in which the relative yields for very high energy collisions are essentially determined by a single model parameter—the chemical freezeout temperature. Recent measurements of yields of hadrons and light nuclei covering over nine orders of magnitudes from the ALICE collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider were described by the model with remarkable accuracy with a chemical freezeout temperature of 156.5 ± 1.5 MeV. A key physical question ...
Computational Techniques For Scattering Amplitudes, Juliano A. Everett
Computational Techniques For Scattering Amplitudes, Juliano A. Everett
Publications and Research
Scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory can be described as the probability of a scattering process to happen within a high energy particle interaction, as well as a bridge between experimental measurements and the prediction of the theory.
In this research project, we explore the Standard Model of Particle Theory, it’s representation in terms of Feynman diagrams and the algebraic formulas associated with each combination.
Using the FeynArts program as a tool for generating Feynman diagrams, we evaluate the expressions of a set of physical processes, and explain why these techniques become necessary to achieve this goal.
Suppression Of High Transverse Momentum Charged Hadrons In Au+Au Collisions At 200 Gev NucleonNucleon Center Of Mass Energy, Jason B. Bryslawskyj
Suppression Of High Transverse Momentum Charged Hadrons In Au+Au Collisions At 200 Gev NucleonNucleon Center Of Mass Energy, Jason B. Bryslawskyj
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
The dynamical properties of quark gluon plasma are studied in heavy ion collisions. Gold ions are accelerated with the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory and collided at energies up to 200 GeV per nucleon. Collision products and their properties are detected and measured with the PHENIX detector. At these energies the colliding ions may form a thermalized distribution of quarks and gluons called the QuarkGluon Plasma. The suppression of single hadrons still provides one of the strongest constraints on energy loss mechanisms in the QuarkGluon Plasma. Presently, neutral pions provide the best measurement at RHIC of ...
Moments Method For ShellModel Level Density, V. Zelevinsky, M. Horoi, Roman A. Sen′Kov
Moments Method For ShellModel Level Density, V. Zelevinsky, M. Horoi, Roman A. Sen′Kov
Publications and Research
The modern form of the Moments Method applied to the calculation of the nuclear shellmodel level density is explained and examples of the method at work are given. The calculated level density practically exactly coincides with the result of full diagonalization when the latter is feasible. The method provides the pure level density for given spin and parity with spurious centerofmass excitations subtracted. The presence and interplay of all correlations leads to the results different from those obtained by the meanfield combinatorics.
Theories In Spin Dynamics Of SolidState Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Eugene S. Mananga, Jalil Moghaddasi, Ajaz Sana, Mostafa Sadoqi
Theories In Spin Dynamics Of SolidState Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Eugene S. Mananga, Jalil Moghaddasi, Ajaz Sana, Mostafa Sadoqi
Publications and Research
This short review article presents theories used in solidstate nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Main theories used in NMR include the average Hamiltonian theory, the Floquet theory and the developing theories are the Fer expansion or the FloquetMagnus expansion. These approaches provide solutions to the timedependent Schrodinger equation which is a central problem in quantum physics in general and solidstate nuclear magnetic resonance in particular. Methods of these expansion schemes used as numerical integrators for solving the time dependent Schrodinger equation are presented. The action of their propagator operators is also presented. We highlight potential future theoretical and numerical directions such ...

Nuclear Structure Aspects Of Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay, B. Alex Brown, Mihai Horoi, Roman A. Sen′Kov
Nuclear Structure Aspects Of Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay, B. Alex Brown, Mihai Horoi, Roman A. Sen′Kov
Publications and Research
We decompose the neutrinoless doublebeta decay matrix elements into sums of products over the intermediate nucleus with two less nucleons. We find that the sum is dominated by the J^pi=0^+ ground state of this intermediate nucleus for both the light and heavy neutrino decay processes. This provides a new theoretical tool for comparing and improving nuclear structure models. It also provides the connection to twonucleon transfer experiments.
Initial Conditions In HighEnergy Collisions, Elena Petreska
Initial Conditions In HighEnergy Collisions, Elena Petreska
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This thesis is focused on the initial stages of highenergy collisions in the saturation regime. We start by extending the McLerranVenugopalan distribution of color sources in the initial wavefunction of nuclei in heavyion collisions. We derive a fourthorder operator in the action and discuss its relevance for the description of color charge distributions in protons in highenergy experiments. We calculate the dipole scattering amplitude in protonproton collisions with the quartic action and find an agreement with experimental data. We also obtain a modification to the fluctuation parameter of the negative binomial distribution of particle multiplicities in protonproton experiments. The result ...
YangMills Theories As Deformations Of Massive Integrable Models, Axel Cortes Cubero
YangMills Theories As Deformations Of Massive Integrable Models, Axel Cortes Cubero
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Yang Mills theory in 2+1 dimensions can be expressed as an array of coupled (1+1)dimensional principal chiral sigma models. The SU(N) principal chiral sigma model in 1+1 dimensions is integrable, asymptotically free and has massive excitations. We calculate all the form factors and two point correlation functions of the Noether current and energymomentum tensor, in
't Hooft's largeN limit (some form factors can be found even at finite N). We use these new form factors to calculate physical quantities in (2+1)dimensional YangMills theory, generalizing previous SU(2) by P. Orland to SU ...
Boosted Top Production: Factorization And Resummation For SingleParticle Inclusive Distributions, Andrea Ferroglia, Simone Marzani, Ben D. Pecjak, Li Lin Yang
Boosted Top Production: Factorization And Resummation For SingleParticle Inclusive Distributions, Andrea Ferroglia, Simone Marzani, Ben D. Pecjak, Li Lin Yang
Publications and Research
We study singleparticle inclusive (1PI) distributions in topquark pair production at hadron colliders, working in the highly boosted regime where the topquarkpTis much larger than its mass. In particular, we derive a novel factorization formula validin the smallmass and soft limits of the differential partonic cross section. This providesa framework for the simultaneous resummation of soft gluon corrections and smallmass logarithms, and also an efficient means of obtaining higherorder corrections to the differential cross section in this limit. The result involves five distinct onescale functions, three of which arise through the subfactorization of soft real radiation in the smallmass limit ...
