The identification of jets originating from beauty quarks in heavy-ion collisions is important to study the properties of the hot and dense matter produced in such collisions. A variety of algorithms for b-jet tagging was elaborated at the LHC experments. They rely on the properties of B hadrons, i.e. their long lifetime, large mass and large multiplicity of decay products. In this work, the b-tagging algorithm based on displaced secondary-vertex topologies is described. We present Monte Carlo…

Modeling and measurement of the b-jet nuclear modification factor in p-Pb collisions at 5.02 Tev with ALICE at the LHC
In Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC, a hot and dense medium of deconfined quarks and gluons is formed, the so-called Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP).The QGP is conjectured to be the state of matter of the early


Measurement of the underlying event activity in pp collisions at $ \sqrt {s} = 0.9 $ and 7 TeV with the novel jet-area/median approach
A bstractThe first measurement of the charged component of the underlying event using the novel “jet-area/median” approach is presented for proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 0.9
Inclusive b-jet production in pp collisions at $\sqrt {s} = 7TeV$
A bstractThe inclusive b-jet production cross section in pp collisions at a center-of mass energy of 7 TeV is measured using data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The cross section is
Medium induced gluon radiation off massive quarks fills the dead cone
We calculate the transverse momentum dependence of the medium-induced gluon energy distribution radiated off massive quarks in spatially extended QCD matter. In the absence of a medium, the
Performance of the ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC
ALICE is the heavy-ion experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The experiment continuously took data during the first physics campaign of the machine from fall 2009 until early 2013, using
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
