  • © 2016 CERN for the benefit of the ALICE Collaboration. The production of the hypertriton nuclei HΛ3 and H[U+203E]Λ-3 has been measured for the first time in Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76 TeV with the ALICE experiment at LHC. The p T -integrated HΛ3 yield in one unity of rapidity, dN/dy×B.R.(HΛ3→He3,π-)=(3.86±0.77(stat.)±0.68(syst.))×10-in the 0-10% most central collisions, is consistent with the predictions from a statistical thermal model using the same temperature as for the light hadrons. The coalescence parameter B 3 shows a dependence on the transverse momentum, similar to the B 2 of deuterons and the B 3 of 3 Hemore » nuclei. The ratio of yields S3=HΛ3/(He3×Λ/p) was measured to be S 3 =0.60±0.13(stat.)±0.21(syst.) in 0-10% centrality events; this value is compared to different theoretical models. The measured S 3 is compatible with thermal model predictions. The measured HΛ3 lifetime, τ=181-39+54(stat.)±33(syst.)ps is in agreement within 1σ with the world average value.« less
  • High transverse momentum jets produced in pp collisions at a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV are used to measure the transverse energy–energy correlation function and its associated azimuthal asymmetry. The data were recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in the year 2011 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 158 pb –1. The selection criteria demand the average transverse momentum of the two leading jets in an event to be larger than 250 GeV. The data at detector level are well described by Monte Carlo event generators. They are unfolded to the particle level and comparedmore » with theoretical calculations at next-to-leading-order accuracy. The agreement between data and theory is good and provides a precision test of perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics at large momentum transfers. From this comparison, the strong coupling constant given at the Z boson mass is determined to be α s(m Z) = 0.1173 ± 0.0010 (exp.) +0.0065 –0.0026 (theo).« less
  • We present the first ever measurements of femtoscopic correlations between the K S 0 and K ± particles. The analysis was performed on the data from Pb–Pb collisions at √ sNN =2.76 TeV measured by the ALICE experiment. The observed femtoscopic correlations are consistent with final-state interactions proceeding via the a 0(980) resonance. The extracted kaon source radius and correlation strength parameters for K S 0K - are found to be equal within the experimental uncertainties to those for K S 0K +. Comparing the results of the present study with those from published identical-kaon femtoscopic studies by ALICE, massmore » and coupling parameters for the a 0 resonance are tested. Our results are also compatible with the interpretation of the a 0 having a tetraquark structure instead of that of a diquark.« less
