ALICE : Upsilon production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in pp collisions at 13 TeV

27 Jan 2021, 09:25

Description

In pp collisions at LHC energies, heavy quarks are produced in initial hard scatterings and then these quarks hadronize in either open heavy-flavor hadrons or quarkonia (e.g. J/𝜓, 𝜓(2𝑆), Υ). The study of quarkonium production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity links soft and hard processes and allows one to study their interplay. While a linear increase of quarkonium production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity can be reasonably well understood in the context of multi-parton interactions, the observation of deviations with respect to a linear increase requires a more detailed description of the collision.
