 Simulating the LHCb hadron calorimeter with generative adversarial networks / Lancierini, D (U. Zurich (main)) ; Owen, P (U. Zurich (main)) ; Serra, N (U. Zurich (main)) Generative adversarial networks are known as a tool for fast simulation of data. Our aim is to research and develop a physical application of these tools by simulating LHCb hadron calorimeter (HCAL) in order to speed up the Monte Carlo datasets production.. 2019 - 4 p. - Published in : Nuovo Cimento C 42 (2019) 197 Fulltext: PDF; In : 17th Incontri di Fisica delle Alte Energie, Milan, Italy, 04 - 06 Apr 2018, pp.197

Liverpool (main) ; Cockcroft Inst. Accel. Sci. Tech.) ; Zhang, Hao (Cockcroft Inst. Accel. Sci. Tech. ; U. Liverpool (main)) In proton beam therapy, knowledge of the detailed beam properties is essential to ensure effective dose delivery to the patient. In clinical practice, currently used interceptive ionisation chambers require daily calibration and suffer from slow response time.

 COMPASS results on weighted Sivers asymmetry in SIDIS / Martin, Anna (Trieste U. ; INFN, Trieste) /COMPASS Collaboration The transverse momentum weighted asymmetries have been proposed since a long time to access the transverse momentum dependent parton distributions. The COMPASS Collaboration has recently measured the weighted Sivers asymmetries in deep inelastic lepton scattering off transversly polarised protons.

 Results from AMS-02 on the ISS after 6 years in space / Vagelli, V (Perugia U. ; INFN, Perugia) /AMS Collaboration AMS-02 is a cosmic-ray detector which has been operating on the International Space Station since May 2011 to conduct a unique mission of fundamental research in space. More than 100 billion cosmic rays have been collected by AMS-02 after 6 years of operations, providing a detailed insight into the features of different species of cosmic rays.

 Collectivity in small and large collision systems at the LHC with ALICE / Gajdošová, Katarína Křížková (Prague, Tech. U.) /ALICE Collaboration Interactions of protons (pp) or of a proton with a lead nucleus (p–Pb) were not expected to form a deconfined hot and dense matter, called the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), which is instead produced in heavy-ion collisions. However, high-multiplicity events in small collision systems exhibit signs of collectivity, which are understood as a signature of the QGP emergence in heavy-ion collisions.

 Highlights of the production of (anti-)(hyper-)nuclei and exotica with ALICE at the LHC / Dönigus, Benjamin (Frankfurt U., Inst. Kernphys.) /ALICE Collaboration Measurements of the production of light (anti-)nuclei and (anti-)hypernuclei have been performed in different colliding systems at the LHC, namely pp, p–Pb and Pb–Pb. The results of the production in Pb–Pb collisions of light (anti-)(hyper-)nuclei follows the expectation of the thermal model, whereas the production of nuclei in pp and p–Pb collisions shows a closer agreement with the expectations from coalescence models.

 Measurements of the $^3$He and $D$ components in cosmic rays with the AMS-02 experiment / Dimiccoli, F (TIFPA-INFN, Trento) ; Basara, L (TIFPA-INFN, Trento) ; Kanishchev, K (TIFPA-INFN, Trento) ; Nozzoli, F (TIFPA-INFN, Trento) ; Zuccon, P (Trento U. ; TIFPA-INFN, Trento) The $^3$He/$^4$He and $D/p$ flux ratios in cosmic rays (CR) are two of the most valuable tools for understanding the propagation of CR in the galaxy and constrain the models that describe it. In this work, two new preliminary measurements of $^3$He/$^4$He and $D/p$ flux ratios are presented, each obtained from the data of the AMS-02 experiment.. 2019 - 3 p. - Published in : Nuovo Cimento C 42 (2019) 174 Fulltext: PDF; In : 17th Incontri di Fisica delle Alte Energie, Milan, Italy, 04 - 06 Apr 2018, pp.174

 Pion and kaon SIDIS multiplicities from COMPASS / Kunne, Fabienne (IRFU, Saclay, DPHN) /COMPASS Collaboration We present preliminary COMPASS results on pion and kaon multiplicities produced in semi- inclusive deep inelastic scattering of 160 GeV muons off an isoscalar ($^6$LiD) target. The results constitute an impressive data set of more than 600 points for pions and 600 for kaons, covering a large $x, Q^2$ and $z$ domain in a fine binning.
