    A Unified Model for inelastic e-N and nu-N cross sections at all Q2

    Get PDF
    We present results using a new scaling variable, xi_w in modeling electron- and neutrino-nucleon scattering cross sections with effective leading order PDFs.Our model uses all inelastic charged lepton F_2 data (SLAC/BCDMS/NMC/HERA), and photoproduction data on hydrogen and deuterium. We find that our model describes all inelastic scattering charged lepton data, the average of JLAB resonance data, and neutrino data at all Q2. This model is currently used by current neutrino oscillation experiments in the few GeV region.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figures, presented at 13th International Workshop on Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS 05), Madison, Wisconsin, 27 Apr - 1 May 200

    NuTeV Structure Function Measurement

    Get PDF
    The NuTeV experiment obtained high statistics samples of neutrino and anti-neutrino charged current events during the 1996-1997 Fermilab fixed target run. The experiment combines sign-selected neutrino and anti-neutrino beams and the upgraded CCFR iron-scintillator neutrino detector. A precision continuous calibration beam was used to determine the muon and hadron energy scales to a precision of 0.7% and 0.43% respectively. The structure functions F_2(x,Q^2) and xF_3(x,Q^2) obtained by fitting the y-dependence of the sum and the difference of the neutrino and anti-neutrino differential cross sections are presented.Comment: Proceedings of the XIII international workshop on Deep Inelastic Scattering DIS 2005, 4 pages, 4 figure

    New Production Mechanism for Heavy Neutrinos at the LHC

    Full text link
    We study a new production mechanism for heavy neutrinos at the LHC, which dominates over the usually considered ss-channel WW-exchange diagram for heavy-neutrino masses larger than 100 - 200 GeV. The new mechanism is infrared-enhanced by tt-channel WγW\gamma-fusion processes. This has important implications for experimental tests of the seesaw mechanism of neutrino masses, and in particular, for the ongoing heavy neutrino searches at the LHC. We find that the direct collider limits on the light-to-heavy neutrino mixing can be significantly improved, when this new production channel is properly taken into account. The scope of this new mechanism can equally well be extended to other exotic searches at the LHC.Comment: 5 pages, 4 figures; version accepted by Phys. Rev. Let

    Pixel data real time processing as a next step for HL-LHC upgrades and beyond

    Full text link
    The experiments at LHC are implementing novel and challenging detector upgrades for the High Luminosity LHC, among which the tracking systems. This paper reports on performance studies, illustrated by an electron trigger, using a simplified pixel tracker. To achieve a real-time trigger (e.g. processing HL-LHC collision events at 40 MHz), simple algorithms are developed for reconstructing pixel-based tracks and track isolation, utilizing look-up tables based on pixel detector information. Significant gains in electron trigger performance are seen when pixel detector information is included. In particular, a rate reduction up to a factor of 20 is obtained with a signal selection efficiency of more than 95\% over the whole η\eta coverage of this detector. Furthermore, it reconstructs p-p collision points in the beam axis (z) direction, with a high precision of 20 μ\mum resolution in the very central region (η<0.8|\eta| < 0.8), and, up to 380 μ\mum in the forward region (2.7 <η<< |\eta| < 3.0). This study as well as the results can easily be adapted to the muon case and to the different tracking systems at LHC and other machines beyond the HL-LHC. The feasibility of such a real-time processing of the pixel information is mainly constrained by the Level-1 trigger latency of the experiment. How this might be overcome by the Front-End ASIC design, new processors and embedded Artificial Intelligence algorithms is briefly tackled as well.Comment: To be submitted to JHE

    Improved low Q2 model for neutrino and electron nucleon cross sections in few GeV region

    Full text link
    We present an improved model on neutrino- and electron-nucleon scattering cross sections using effective leading order PDFs with a new scaling variable xi_w. Non-perturbative QCD effects at low Q^2 are separately treated for u and d valence quarks, and sea quarks. The improved model uses all inelastic charged lepton F_2 data (SLAC/BCDMS/NMC/HERA), and photoproduction data on proton and deuterium. In this way, we obtain an improved model which describes all inelastic scattering charged lepton data, JLAB resonance data, and neutrino data. This improved model is expected to be better for neutrino oscillation experiments at few GeV region.Comment: Prepared for International Workshop on Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions in the Few GeV Regions (NuInt04), Gran Sasso Lab., Italy, March, 2004, 6 pages, 10 figure

    AbstractThe distribution of native plants of Cheondeungsan Mountain (807 m, N 37°05'00“–37°05'30”, E 128°00'0“–128°02'0”) in Chungcheongbuk-do was determined and the major flora were identified. During field investigations carried out from May 2011 to October 2011, 87 families, 254 genera, and 369 taxonomic groups (327 species, 4 subspecies, 33 varieties, and 5 forms) were confirmed, and the distribution of 219 taxonomic groups was discovered for the first time. The distribution of four endemic plants of Korea, including Ajuga spectabilis Nakai and Salvia chanryoenica Nakai, and that of Penthorum chinense Pursh, a Grade V specific plant species, was found. There were 20 taxa of naturalized plants at Cheondeungsan; the growth and development of plants that are harmful to the ecosystem, such as Ambrosia artemisiifolia L., Ambrosia trifida L., Eupatorium rugosum Houtt., and Aster pilosus Willd., was observed around the forest paths and lowlands
