Title: Production of Hadron Resonances in Heavy-Ion Collisions

Abstract

The role of microscopic kinetics in the production of short-lived (broad) hadron resonances from subhadronic nuclear matter is considered. A new approach to calculating the multiplicity of broad meson resonances is proposed. This approach takes explicitly into account the possibility that massive constituent quarks play a decisive role at the last stage of the expansion and cooling of matter produced in the central collisions of relativistic heavy nuclei. The resulting theoretical estimates are compared with available experimental data, and some quantitative and qualitative predictions are made.

  • Here, vector-boson-tagged jet production in collisions of heavy nuclei opens new opportunities to study parton shower formation and propagation in strongly interacting matter. It has been argued to provide a golden channel that can constrain the energy loss of jets in the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy ion reactions. We present theoretical results for isolated-photon-tagged and Z 0-boson-tagged jet production in Pb + Pb collisions with √s NN = 5.02TeV at the LHC. Specifically, we evaluate the transverse momentum imbalance x JV distribution and nuclear modification factor I AA of tagged jets and compare our theoretical calculations to recent experimentalmore » measurements by ATLAS and CMS collaborations. Our analysis, which includes both collisional and radiative energy losses, sheds light on their relative importance versus the strength of jet-medium interactions and helps quantify the amount of out-of-cone radiation of predominantly prompt quark-initiated jets.« less

  • We establish a linear Boltzmann transport (LBT) model coupled to hydrodynamical background to study hard parton evolution in heavy-ion collisions. Both elastic and inelastic scatterings are included in our calculations; and heavy and light flavor partons are treated on the same footing. Within this LBT model, we provide good descriptions of heavy and light hadron suppression and anisotropic flow in heavy-ion collisions. Angular correlation functions between heavy and light flavor hadrons are studied for the first time and shown able to quantify not only the amount of heavy quark energy loss, but also how the parton energy is re-distributed inmore » parton showers.« less
  • We show that a measurement of the reaction energy ({radical}(s)) dependence of relative hadron resonance yields in heavy ion collisions can be used to study the phase structure of the dense strongly interacting matter created in these collisions and investigate the origin of the trends observed in the excitation functions of certain soft hadronic observables. We show that the presence of chemical nonequilibrium in light quark abundance imparts a characteristic signature on the energy dependence of resonance yields that differs considerably from what is expected in the equilibrium picture.
  • We present a Monte Carlo version of the dual parton model for the description of particle production in hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions. Each nucleon-nucleon collision is described by the two-component dual parton model. Soft hadronic collisions and hard perturbative collisions (minijets) are the two components included in the unitarization scheme. Depending on the transverse momentum cutoff we find up to several thousand minijets in collisions of heavy ions at the TeV energies of the future CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We get predictions up to energies reached at the LHC for the rapidity and transverse momentum distributions and the minijetmore » component of the hadronic energy density.« less
  • The parton and hadron cascade model PACIAE based on PYTHIA is utilized to systematically investigate strange particle production in pp collisions at energies available at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Globally speaking, the PACIAE results of the strange particle rapidity density at midrapidity and the transverse momentum distribution are better than those of PYTHIA (default) in comparison with STAR and ALICE experimental data. This may represent the importance of the parton and hadron rescatterings, as well as the reduction mechanism of strange quark suppression, added in the PACIAE model. The K/{pi}more » ratios as a function of reaction energy in pp collisions from CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) to LHC energies are also analyzed in this paper.« less
