Event Shape Sorting: selecting events with similar evolution

We present novel method for the organisation of events. The method is based on comparing event-by-event histograms of a chosen quantity Q that is measured for each particle in every event. The events are organised in such a way that those with similar shape of the Q-histograms end-up placed close to each other. We apply the method on histograms of azimuthal angle of the produced hadrons in ultrarelativsitic nuclear collisions. By selecting events with similar azimuthal shape of their hadron…

Event shape sorting

Abstract.We propose a novel method for sorting events of multiparticle production according to the azimuthal anisotropy of their momentum distribution. Although the method is quite general, we

Observables of non-equilibrium phase transition⋆

Abstract.A rapidly expanding fireball which undergoes first-order phase transition will supercool and proceed via spinodal decomposition. Hadrons are produced from the individual fragments as well as

Multiphase transport model for relativistic heavy ion collisions

We describe in detail how the different components of a multiphase transport (AMPT) model that uses the heavy ion jet interaction generator (HIJING) for generating the initial conditions, Zhang's

A quantitative analysis of measures of quality in science

Condensing the work of any academic scientist into a one-dimensional measure of scientific quality is a difficult problem. Here, we employ Bayesian statistics to analyze several different measures of

A quantitative analysis of indicators of scientific performance

Bayesian statistics is employed to analyze several different indicators of scientific performance to determine each indicator’s ability to discriminate between scientific authors, demonstrating that the best of these indicators require approximately 50 papers to draw conclusions regarding long term scientific performance with usefully small statistical uncertainties.

Measures and Mismeasures of Scientific Quality

A general Bayesian method for quantifying the statistical reliability of one-dimensional measures of scientific quality based on citation data, which shows that the mean, median and maximum number of citations are reliable and permit accurate predictions of future author performance on the basis of as few as 50 publications.
