    B physics triggers at CMS

    Full text link
    The CMS detector is mainly designed to investigate hard events. Only few Level-1 Trigger conditions are suitable to select soft B-meson decays. The B-physics potential of CMS depends strongly on a selection strategy at High-Level Trigger. The selection algorithms for some benchmark B-decay channels that allow CMS to perform competitive B-physics program are presented.Comment: Invited talk at the Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle, IPPP Durham, April 2003 (eConf C0304052). 5 pages LaTeX, 8 eps figure

    Full text link
    We present an analysis of high performance computational method for solving the problem of crystal grows. The method uses PETSc and PETIGA C-language based libraries and supports parallel computing. The evolution of calculation process was studied in series of special computations are obtained on innovative mobile cluster platform, which provides exclusive system tuning abilities. The results of research confirm the high efficiency of the proposed algorithm on multi-core computer systems and allow us to recommend the use of PETSc and PETIGA for solving high order differential equations

    The CMS pixel barrel detector is a complex system that consists of 768 segmented silicon sensor modules. The total number of readout channels in the system is about 48 million. An overview on the module assembly and qualification procedures as well as testing results will be presented. The assembly of the detector control and readout electronics on the supply tube, the integration of the final system and the installation into CMS will be explained. The strategy and results from the early commissioning of the complete system that includes the performance of the hardware and the data acquisition and control software will be reviewed

    Qualification Procedures of the CMS Pixel Barrel Modules

    Full text link
    The CMS pixel barrel system will consist of three layers built of about 800 modules. One module contains 66560 readout channels and the full pixel barrel system about 48 million channels. It is mandatory to test each channel for functionality, noise level, trimming mechanism, and bump bonding quality. Different methods to determine the bump bonding yield with electrical measurements have been developed. Measurements of several operational parameters are also included in the qualification procedure. Among them are pixel noise, gains and pedestals. Test and qualification procedures of the pixel barrel modules are described and some results are presented.Comment: 7 Pages, 7 Figures. Contribution to Pixel 2005, September 5-8, 2005, Bonn, Germna

    SM and MSSM Higgs Boson Production: Spectra at large transverse Momentum

    Full text link
    Strategies for Higgs boson searches require the knowledge of the total production cross section and the transverse momentum spectrum. The large transverse momentum spectrum of the Higgs boson produced in gluon fusion can be quite different in the Standard Model and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. In this paper we present a comparison of the Higgs transverse momentum spectrum obtained using the PYTHIA event generator and the HIGLU program as well as the program HQT, which includes NLO corrections and a soft gluon resummation for the region of small transverse momenta. While the shapes of the spectra are similar for the Standard Model, significant differences are observed in the spectra of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model benchmark scenarios with large tan(beta).Comment: 8 pages, 13 figure

    Specific Features of Thermal Systems of Induration Machines for Pellet Production from Iron-ore Concentrates of Different Types

    Pellets are one of the main types of iron-ore raw materials used in ferrous metallurgy. In Russia, the overall production of this iron-ore raw material is continuously growing. The analysis of pelletizing technologies over the last years has shown changes in requirements for product quality, process performance, heat and power parameters, environmental performance and production conditions of both fired and pre-reduced pellets. The article provides the analysis of technological and structural defects of conveyor-type induration machines. In order to remove these defects, we have developed an integrated technology for the production of fired pellets of various purposes. This technology made it possible to create an energy-efficient thermal system of the induration machine that has no counterparts in the world. This thermal system takes into account characteristics of the initial raw material. Its implementation at Mikhailovsky GOK in Russia provided a specific natural gas consumption within 8–9 nm3 /t of pellets and specific energy consumption less than 36 kW·h/t of pellets. These parameters were received by mathematical modelling and introduction of two-layer drying in the pellet induration process. The new induration technology has been implemented in Brazil and is now spreading at other plants in Russia. Keywords: pellets, iron-ore concentrates, induration machines, thermal systems, two-layer charging, pellet dryin

    Distillation optimization: Parameterized relationship between feed flow rate of a steady-state distillation column and heat duties of reboiler and condenser

    Full text link
    The paper considers the problem of maximum efficiency for the system of distillation columns. Columns in such systems are connected in parallel or sequential way. The mixture being separated is assumed to be close to ideal one. Authors parameterize the relationship between feed flow rate and heat duties of a steady-state binary distillation column using two parameters: the reversible efficiency and the irreversibility coefficient. This relationship is later being used to solve the problems of optimal distribution of heat and feed flows within the system. The results obtained allow one to estimate minimum heat energy demand for distillation of the given feed flow, maximum performance, and efficiency of the system. © 2022 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, RSCF: 20-61-46013This work is supported by RSCF Grant 20-61-46013
