    Photon Multiplicity Measurements : From SPS to RHIC and LHC

    Full text link
    Results from the photon multiplicity measurements using a fine granularity preshower photon multiplicity detector (PMD) at CERN SPS are discussed. These include study of pseudo-rapidity distributions of photons, scaling of photon multiplicity with number of participating nucleons, centrality dependence of mean transverse momentum of photons, event-by-event fluctuations in photon multiplicity and localised charged-neutral fluctuations. Basic features of the PMD to be used in STAR experiment at RHIC and in ALICE experiment at LHC are also discussed.Comment: 12 pages, Invited talk at the 4th International Conference on the Physcis and Astrophysics of the Quark-Gluon-Plasma, November 2001, Jaipur, India, to appear in Praman

    Event-by-event study of DCC-like fluctuation in ultra-relativistic nuclear collisions

    Full text link
    A method based on sliding window scheme is developed to search for patches in the pseudorapidity-azimuth plane, on an event-by-event basis, having unusual fluctuation in the neutral pion fraction which may arise due to the formation of Disoriented Chrial Condensates (DCC) in high energy nuclear collisions. The efficiency of the method to extract the patches and the purity of the extracted sample are studied for possible experimental situations.Comment: 10 pages, 5 figure

    High pT pi0 Production and Angular Correlations in 158 AGeV p+A and Pb+Pb Collisions

    Full text link
    Recent results of the WA98 experiment with p and Pb induced reactions at 158 AGeV are presented. Azimuthal gamma-gamma correlations at high pT were studied in search for a signal of jet-like structures. A clear indication for back-to-back correlations can be seen in p+A with a strong dependence on the pT of the photons and the size of the system. In Pb+Pb collisions in plane elliptic flow has been observed. Results on transverse mass spectra of neutral pions measured at central rapidity are presented for impact parameter selected Pb+Pb collisions. In going from peripheral to medium central collisions there is a nuclear enhancement increasing with transverse mass similar to the Cronin effect, while for very central collisions this enhancement appears to be weaker than expected.Comment: 4 pages, 2 figures, Talk presented at Quark Matter 2002, Nantes, France, July 18-24, 2002.

    Armstrong's Conjecture for (k,mk+1)(k, mk + 1)-Core Partitions

    Full text link
    A conjecture of Armstrong states that if gcd‚Ā°(a,b)=1\gcd (a, b) = 1, then the average size of an (a,b)(a, b)-core partition is (a‚ąí1)(b‚ąí1)(a+b+1)/24(a - 1)(b - 1)(a + b + 1) / 24. Recently, Stanley and Zanello used a recursive argument to verify this conjecture when a=b‚ąí1a = b - 1. In this paper we use a variant of their method to establish Armstrong's conjecture in the more general setting where aa divides b‚ąí1b - 1.Comment: 17 pages, 3 figure

    KBS Development

    Get PDF
    The Knowledge Based System (KBS) has two main objectives, the provision of easy access to all the industrial and scientific codes through an executive program, and the provision of an easy to use user interface for the analysis codes. The user interface is designed to minimize the effort expended in dealing with the mechanics of using a computer, allowing the user to concentrate on seal design and analysis
