Inclusive Jet Production In Proton-Proton And Copper-Gold Collisions At Sqrt(S_{Nn}) = 200 Gev, Arbin Timilsina Jan 2016

Inclusive Jet Production In Proton-Proton And Copper-Gold Collisions At Sqrt(S_{Nn}) = 200 Gev, Arbin Timilsina

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Jets are a dominant feature of high energy particle interactions and can be interpreted in terms of the fragmentation of quarks and gluons produced in a hard scattering process. Jets provide important tools for studying hot and dense Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) matter that is created in high energy collisions of heavy nuclei. In heavy ion collisions, such as Cu+Au, large transverse momentum partons traverse the colored Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) medium and lose energy which modifies the jet structure relative to jets generated in the vacuum.

Jet production in relativistic heavy ion collisions is investigated using the Cu+Au collisions ...


Ab Initio Approach To Quantum Field Theories On The Light Front, Yang Li Jan 2015

Ab Initio Approach To Quantum Field Theories On The Light Front, Yang Li

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

We develop and apply methods for solving non-perturbative quantum field theories in the Hamiltonian formalism. The current work is a first step towards an ab initio approach to QCD bound-state problems.

In particular, we investigate heavy quarkonium within the basis light-front quantization approach. We implement a phenomenological confinement from the Light-Front Holographic QCD and a theoretically derived one-gluon exchange effective interaction. We adopt the holographic light-front wavefunctions as our basis and solve the bound-state problem by diagonalizing the Hamiltonian matrix. We obtain the mass spectrum for charmonium and bottomonium. We also compute the decay constants and the elastic form factors ...


A Novel Approach To Central-Jet Forward-Hadron Correlations In Proton-Proton Collisions At 200 Gev At The Phenix Experiment, Joshua Paul Perry Jan 2014

A Novel Approach To Central-Jet Forward-Hadron Correlations In Proton-Proton Collisions At 200 Gev At The Phenix Experiment, Joshua Paul Perry

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The results of Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering and Deep Inelastic Scattering experiments combined in a global analysis have shown us that a transversely polarized quark undergoes an azimuthal spatially-biased neutral pion fragmentation. One goal of the PHENIX experiment at RHIC is to study similar properties in a hadron-hadron collision environment in an attempt to show the degree to which universality is broken between these differing systems as well as the relative contribution of competing processes to the observed single spin asymmetries. A novel measurement method was formulated specifically for the PHENIX experiment's detector configuration. The method and results are ...
