A standard file format is proposed to store process and event information, primarily output from parton-level event generators for further use by general-purpose ones. The information content is identical with what was already defined by the Les Houches Accord five years ago, but then in terms of Fortran commonblocks. This information is embedded in a(More)
In a search for the Standard Model Higgs boson, carried out on 212.5 pb−1 of data collected by the L3 detector at the highest LEP centre-of-mass energies, including 116.5 pb−1 above √s = 206 GeV, an excess of candidates for the process e+e− → Z∗ →HZ is found for Higgs masses near 114.5 GeV. We present an analysis of our data and the characteristics of our(More)

The measurement of primary π±, K±, p and p production at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.5) in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV performed with a large ion collider experiment at the large hadron collider (LHC) is reported. Particle identification is performed using the specific ionisation energy-loss and time-of-flight information, the ringimaging Cherenkov(More)
We report on measurements of hadronic and leptonic cross sections and leptonic forwardbackward asymmetries performed with the L3 detector in the years 1993–95. A total luminosity of 103 pb−1 was collected at centre-of-mass energies √ s ≈ mZ and √s ≈ mZ±1.8 GeV which corresponds to 2.5 million hadronic and 245 thousand leptonic events selected. These data(More)
The pseudorapidity density of charged particles, dN_{ch}/dη, at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions has been measured at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV. For the 5% most central collisions, we measure a value of 1943±54. The rise in dN_{ch}/dη as a function of sqrt[s_{NN}] is steeper than that observed in proton-proton(More)
We report the first results of elliptic (v_{2}), triangular (v_{3}), and quadrangular (v_{4}) flow of charged particles in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurements are performed in the central pseudorapidity region |η|<0.8 and for the(More)
This is the “TeV4LHC” report of the “Physics Landscapes” Working Group, focused on facilitating the start-up of physics explorations at the LHC by using the experience gained at the Tevatron. We present experimental and theoretical results that can be employed to probe various scenarios for physics beyond the Standard Model. ¶ Convenors of the Physics(More)
Skin colour was evaluated in summer in 91 Caucasian volunteers by means of a Minolta Chroma Meter CR-200, a colour analyser for measuring the reflective colour of surfaces by the tristimulus system. All the subjects were classified for skin type according to Fitzpatrick and minimal erythema dose determined. The skin colour of the buttock was taken to be the(More)
We report the measurements of correlations between event-by-event fluctuations of amplitudes of anisotropic flow harmonics in nucleus-nucleus collisions, obtained for the first time using a new analysis method based on multiparticle cumulants in mixed harmonics. This novel method is robust against systematic biases originating from nonflow effects and by(More)
