    Charged and Neutral Current Pion Production in Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering

    Full text link
    In this article, we present the charged and neutral current coherent pion production in the neutrino-nucleus interaction in the resonance region using the formalism based on the partially conserved axial current (PCAC) theorem which relates the neutrino-nucleus cross section to the pion-nucleus elastic cross section. The pion nucleus elastic cross section is calculated using the Glauber model approach. We calculate the integrated cross sections for neutrino-carbon, neutrino-iron and neutrino-oxygen scattering. The results of integrated cross-section calculations are compared with the measured dataComment: XXII DAE High Energy Physics Symposium, Springer Proceedings in Physics 20

    Strange hadron production in pp, pPb and PbPb collisions at LHC energies

    We present a systematic analysis of transverse momentum (pT)(p_{T}) spectra of the strange hadrons in different multiplicity events produced in pp collision at s\sqrt{s} = 7 TeV, pPb collision at sNN\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02 TeV and PbPb collision at sNN\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 2.76 TeV. Both the single and differential freeze out scenarios of strange hadrons Ks0K^0_s, Ξ›\Lambda and Ξžβˆ’\Xi^- are considered while fitting using a Tsallis distribution which is modified to include transverse flow. The pTp_{T} distributions of these hadrons in different systems are characterized in terms of the parameters namely, Tsallis temperature (T)(T), power (n)(n) and average transverse flow velocity (Ξ²)(\beta). It is found that for all the systems, transverse flow increases as we move from lower to higher multiplicity events. In the case of the differential freeze-out scenario, the degree of thermalization remains similar for events of different multiplicity classes in all the three systems. The Tsallis temperature increases with the mass of the hadrons and also increases with the event multiplicity in pp and pPb system but shows little variation with the multiplicity in PbPb system. In the case of the single freeze-out scenario, the difference between small systems (pp, pPb) and PbPb system becomes more evident. The high multiplicity PbPb events show higher degree of thermalization as compared to the events of pp and pPb systems. The trend of variation of the temperature in PbPb system with event multiplicity is opposite to what is found in the pp and pPb systems

    Search for Lorentz-violation through sidereal effect at NO{\nu}A Experiment

    Full text link
    Long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments offer a unique laboratory to test the fundamental Lorentz symmetry, which is heart of both the standard model of particle and general relativity theory. Deviations from the standard neutrino oscillation or the sidereal modulation in neutrino events will smoking-gun experimental signature of Lorentz and CPT violation. In this study, we investigate the impact of the sidereal effect on standard neutrino oscillation measurements within the context of the NO{\nu}A experiment. Additionally, we assess the sensitivity of the NO{\nu}A experiment to detect Lorentz-violating interactions, taking into account the sidereal effect. Furthermore, we highlight potential of the NO{\nu}A experiment to set the new constraints on anisotropic Lorentz-violating parameters
