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. Measurements of charged, strange and charmed particle production are compared to predictions. In addition, studies of the energy flow probe the underlying event which is modeled in different ways by several Monte Carlo event generators.
