Description

ALICE is the LHC experiment dedicated to the study of ultra-relativistic Heavy-Ion collisions. Among the main characteristics of ALICE, its very low pT cut-off and material budget make it play an important role in the LHC pp physics program, especially in the soft QCD realm. In addition, pp collisions are of fundamental importance to provide input for Monte Carlo tuning, and to serve as a reference for the results obtained in PbPb collisions. The talk will present the ALICE charged particle multiplicity and pseudorapidity density measured in pp collisions at the various centre-of-mass energies provided by the LHC. Different pseudorapidity and transverse momentum regions will be considered. Comparison with Monte Carlo predictions will be shown.
