Description

Due to its unique pseudorapidity coverage and the possibility of extending the measurements to low transverse momenta, LHCb provides important input to the understanding of particle production and energy flow in a kinematical range where QCD models have large uncertainties. The measurements are performed in the pseudorapidity range 2<η<5 which corresponds to the main detector acceptance of the LHCb spectrometer. Measurements of charged & strange particle production and energy flow are compared to predictions given by several Monte Carlo event generators, which model the underlying event activity in different ways.
