Description

A simple basic model for describing proton-nucleus collisions has been the intra-nuclear cascade model, where the interactions are simulated by a sequence of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions. This model helped to establish many scientific concepts and also creates the foundation for more modern simulation codes, especially at low and intermediate energies. In this paper, we present a new Monte Carlo model for proton-nucleus collisions at high CERN Large Hadron collider energies. The model implements a collective cascade to induce striking light-like effect in a large nucleus. A single collision (lightening) event is shown to be a complex process: Enormous quantities of energies pass through the surrounding nucleons in a large nucleus. This new simulation code is shown to be good to reproduce the Large Hadron collider data, especially p+p and p+Pb collisions.
