LHC High- Runs: Transport and Unfolding Methods

  title={LHC High- Runs: Transport and Unfolding Methods},
  author={Maciej Trzebinski and Rafał Staszewski and Janusz Chwastowski},
  journal={International Scholarly Research Notices},
The paper describes the transport of the elastically and diffractively scattered protons in the proton-proton interactions at the LHC for the high- runs. A parametrisation of the scattered proton transport through the LHC magnetic lattice is presented. The accuracy of the unfolding of the kinematic variables of the scattered protons is discussed.

The feasibility studies of the central exclusive jet production at the LHC using the proton tagging technique are presented. Three classes of data taking scenarios are considered: double tag at high
Prospects for Proton-Proton Measurements with Tagged Protons in ATLAS
In 2017, ATLAS has been equipped with a new, dedicated detector system allowing measurements of forward protons scattered at small angles in diffractive and electromagnetic processes. These ATLAS
Machine optics studies for the LHC measurements
In this work the properties of scattered protons in the vicinity of the ATLAS Interaction Point (IP1) for various LHC optics settings are discussed. Firstly, the beam elements installed around IP1
Single-diffractive production of charmed mesons at the LHC within the kt-factorization approach
A bstractWe discuss the single-diffractive production of cc pairs and charmed mesons at the LHC. For a first time we propose a kt-factorization approach to the diffractive processes. The transverse

High-β* Optics for the LHC
Special high-β optics have been requested to allow for the study of diffractive and elastic scattering at the LHC in the very forward region. Several options are considered and described in detail in
PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual
The PYTHIA program can be used to generate high-energy-physics `events', i.e. sets of outgoing particles produced in the interactions between two incoming particles. The objective is to provide as
Electron Transmission through Graphene Bilayer Flakes
We investigate the electronic transport properties of a bilayer graphene ake contacted by two monolayer nanoribbons. This nite-size bilayer ake can be built by overlapping two semi-in nite ribbons.
