    Impacts of SB2009 on the Higgs Recoil Mass Measurement Based on a Fast Simulation Algorithm for the ILD Detector

    Full text link
    This proceeding reports a study of the impacts of the SB2009 beam parameters on the Higgs recoil mass and Higgs-Strahlung cross-section measurements based on a dedicated fast simulation algorithm of the ILD detector. The study shows worse results from SB2009 beam parameters than the previous RDR beam parameters, because of the smaller luminosity. However, Travel Focus (TF) technology can recover the degradation to certain level.Comment: LCWS2010 proceeding, 7 pages, 6 figure

    Higgs Recoil Mass and Higgs-Strahlung Cross-Section Study for the ILD LOI

    Full text link
    This proceeding summarizes the Higgs recoil mass and Higgs-strahlung cross-section study done for the Letter of Intent (LOI) of the International Large Detector (ILD) Concept. Assuming a Higgs mass of 120 GeV, working at 250 GeV center of mass energy with beam parameters RDR250 and beam polarization, this full simulation study predicts that, the ILD detector can achieve 37 MeV precision on the Higgs mass measurement and 3.3% on the cross-section measurement from the muon channel, while 83 MeV and 4.9% from the electron channel, if we have 250 inverse fb integrated luminosity.Comment: LCWS2010 Proceeding, 7 pages, 8 figure

    Measurement of the W boson mass with 4.3 fb^-1 of D0 Run II data

    Full text link
    A measurement of the W boson mass using 4.3 fb^-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the D0 detector during Run II of the Fermilab Tevatron collider is presented. Based on a sample of 1.68 * 10^6 W->enu candidate events, the W boson mass is measured to be M_W = 80.367 +/- 0.026 GeV. Combining this result with an earlier D0 result determined using an independent Run II data sample of 1 fb^-1 of integrated luminosity, yields M_W = 80.375 +/- 0.023 GeV.Comment: 8 pages, 7 figures, proceedings for Moriond EW 201

    Probing the valence quark region of nucleons with Z bosons at LHCb

    Full text link
    In this high-xx region, both the flavour content and structure of the nucleon parton distribution functions remains relatively poorly known. New LHCb measurements of Z and charm jet associated production could indicate a valence-like intrinsic-charm component in the proton wave function, and measurements of Z production in pPb collisions provide new constraints on the partonic structure of nucleons bound inside nuclei. Here we will discuss these new LHCb measurements and comparisons with state-of-the-art parton distribution function calculations.Comment: 4 pages, 19 figures, proceedings for the 20th International Conference on Strangeness in Quark Matter (SQM2022

    Recent advances in the production of ő≥-valerolactone from biomass-derived feedstocks via heterogeneous catalytic transfer hydrogenation

    ő≥-valerolactone (GVL) is an important intermediate chemical with a wide range of applications as fuel, fuel additive and as a green solvent which has received a great deal of attentions from both academia and industry. This review aims to summarise the advances in conversion of renewable feedstocks into GVL through heterogeneous catalytic transfer hydrogenation (CTH) with a strong emphasis on discussing preparation, characterisation and performance of the catalysts in order to provide a better understanding of various catalytic systems and also to compare them in terms of catalytic performance

    Conversion of biomass platform molecules into fuel additives and liquid hydrocarbon fuels

    Full text link
    [EN] In this work some relevant processes for the preparation of liquid hydrocarbon fuels and fuel additives from cellulose, hemicellulose and triglycerides derived platform molecules are discussed. Thus, it is shown that a series of platform molecules such as levulinic acid, furans, fatty acids and polyols can be converted into a variety of fuel additives through catalytic transformations that include reduction, esterification, etherification, and acetalization reactions. Moreover, we will show that liquid hydrocarbon fuels can be obtained by combining oxygen removal processes (e.g. dehydration, hydrogenolysis, hydrogenation, decarbonylation/descarboxylation etc.) with the adjustment of the molecular weight via C C coupling reactions (e.g. aldol condensation, hydroxyalkylation, oligomerization, ketonization) of the reactive platform molecules.This work has been supported by the Spanish Government-MINECO through Consolider Ingenio 2010-Multicat and CTQ.-2011-27550, ITQ thanks the "Program Severo Ochoa" for financial support.Climent Olmedo, MJ.; Corma Canós, A.; Iborra Chornet, S.

    Differential cross section measurements for the production of a W boson in association with jets in proton‚Äďproton collisions at ‚ąös = 7 TeV

    Get PDF
    Measurements are reported of differential cross sections for the production of a W boson, which decays into a muon and a neutrino, in association with jets, as a function of several variables, including the transverse momenta (pT) and pseudorapidities of the four leading jets, the scalar sum of jet transverse momenta (HT), and the difference in azimuthal angle between the directions of each jet and the muon. The data sample of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV was collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb[superscript ‚ąí1]. The measured cross sections are compared to predictions from Monte Carlo generators, MadGraph + pythia and sherpa, and to next-to-leading-order calculations from BlackHat + sherpa. The differential cross sections are found to be in agreement with the predictions, apart from the pT distributions of the leading jets at high pT values, the distributions of the HT at high-HT and low jet multiplicity, and the distribution of the difference in azimuthal angle between the leading jet and the muon at low values.United States.
