    GPGPU for track finding in High Energy Physics

    The LHC experiments are designed to detect large amount of physics events produced with a very high rate. Considering the future upgrades, the data acquisition rate will become even higher and new computing paradigms must be adopted for fast data-processing: General Purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU) is a novel approach based on massive parallel computing. The intense computation power provided by Graphics Processing Units (GPU) is expected to reduce the computation time and to speed-up the low-latency applications used for fast decision taking. In particular, this approach could be hence used for high-level triggering in very complex environments, like the typical inner tracking systems of the multi-purpose experiments at LHC, where a large number of charged particle tracks will be produced with the luminosity upgrade. In this article we discuss a track pattern recognition algorithm based on the Hough Transform, where a parallel approach is expected to reduce dramatically the execution time.Comment: 6 pages, 4 figures, proceedings prepared for GPU-HEP 2014 conference, submitted to DESY-PROC-201

    Trapped in a roman well: amphibians and reptiles from Tenuta Zuccarello near Marcon, Venice, Italy

    Altres ajuts: this work has been supported by the Generalitat de Catalunya (CERCA Program).The Roman well US 100, located in the Tenuta Zuccarello near Venice, has yielded a large number of different animals remains, dated back to 2000 ± 40 years BP. Amphibians and reptiles are represented by at least 11 taxa: two caudates (Lissotriton gr. L. vulgaris, Triturus gr. T. cristatus), three anurans (Bombina sp., Bufo bufo, Rana dalmatina vel R. latastei), one turtle (Emys orbicularis), at least two lizards (Anguis gr. A. fragilis, Lacerta gr. L. viridis), and three snakes (Natrix natrix, cf. Coronella sp., Hierophis viridiflavus). Based on this assemblage, an ecotonal environment with water bodies, open and humid areas, as well as dry and sunny areas, is here suggested for the surroundings of the well when the sediments deposited.Most of the identified taxa were found in other Venetian sites since the Pleistocene, suggesting a certain continuity in the amphibians and reptiles population in Veneto during the Quaternary. The only taxon that is absent from the Venetian Lagoon today is Bombina. Its presence in a 2000-years-old archaeological site proves that the disappearance of suitable environments for the genus is a recent phenomenon near the Lagoon. This may support future reintroduction projects in suitable areas, following a conservation palaeobiology perspective

    High-Efficiency Digital Readout Systems for Fast Pixel-based Vertex Detectors

    Get PDF
    Particle physics is one of the science branches which heavily relies on most advanced technologies due to the increasing complexity of the problems it has to face. In future colliders, luminosities and beam energies are scaling upwards. These are necessary conditions for the discovery of new physics which both result in a larger amount of data that need to be brought out of the detector. That’s why one of the crucial points for new experiments is the evolution of data acquisition systems. Data acquisition systems employed in particle physics experiments followed the global technology trend and moved towards digital electronics and transmission lines, in this chapter we will describe how the effort of our work has been applied in this direction trying to extend digital processing on the very front-end of the detector. We will show how digital elaboration on the very front-end can help coping with new stringent requirements
