Description

Quark Matter 2019 - the XXVIIIth International Conference on Ultra-relativistic Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions - will be held in Wuhan, China, during November 4-9, 2019. The conference will take place in the "Wanda Reign" hotel located in the center of Wuhan. Quark Matter 2019 will consist of five and a half days of conference, beginning the morning on Monday, November 4, and ending early afternoon on Saturday, November 9. The conference is preceded by a Student Day on Sunday, November 3, at the Science Hall on the campus of Central China Normal University (CCNU).

Quark Matter 2019 brings together physicists from around the world to discuss new developments in high energy heavy-ion physics. The focus is on the fundamental understanding of strongly-interacting matter at extreme conditions of high temperature and density, as formed in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. In these conditions, which also characterised the early Universe, matter appears as a Quark-Gluon Plasma, with quarks and gluons not confined within hadrons.

        "Mid-rapidity J/ψ production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in proton-proton collisions at √s=13 TeV." 20m

        Previous ALICE studies have shown a stronger than linear relative increase of the inclusive J/ψ production at mid-rapidity as a function of the mid-rapidity charged-particle multiplicity in proton-proton collisions. Studies on Monte Carlo simulations with PYTHIA 8 attributed this behavior to
        autocorrelation effects. In this regard, interesting results were obtained studying the correlation of
        the J/ψ production with the charged-particle multiplicity in different regions of the azimuthal angle

        $\it{R}_{\rm{AA}}$ of electrons from beauty-hadron decays in Pb-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are predominantly produced in the early stage of the collisions via hard partonic scattering processes. Therefore, they experience the full evolution of hot and dense QCD matter in which quarks and gluons are de-confined (Quark-Gluon Plasma, QGP) created by such collisions, and can be an effective probe to study the QGP properties. In particular, while traversing the medium, partons can loose energy via both collisional and radiative processes, and in-medium parton energy loss is expected to depend on the parton color charge and mass. Since beauty quarks are heavier than charm quarks, the mass dependence of the in-medium parton energy loss can be studied by the comparison between nuclear modification factors ($\it{R}_{\rm{AA}}$) of charm and beauty hadrons.
        In the ALICE experiment, beauty production is studied by means of non-prompt D mesons and electrons from beauty-hadron decays at mid-rapidity. The electrons are identified using the Time Projection Chamber, the Time-Of-Flight and the Electromagnetic Calorimeter, and the tracks are reconstructed using the Inner Tracking System and the Time Projection Chamber. In this poster, the $\it{R}_{\rm{AA}}$ of electrons from beauty-hadron decays in 0-10% and 30-50% Pb-Pb collisions at 5.02$\,$TeV will be presented.

        $\pi^0$ Azimuthal Anisotropy in Central d+Au Collisions Measured with PHENIX at RHIC 20m

        The study of anisotropic flow provides strong constrains to the evolution of the medium produced in heavy ion collisions and its event-by-event geometry fluctuations. These observables have long been related to collective behaviour in the formed medium. Recent results both at RHIC and LHC provide strong evidence for the formation of such medium in smaller systems.

        RHIC has had a broad program to study the physics of small systems by systematically varying the collision energy and Ion configuration for a better understanding of the underlying physics. PHENIX recorded data from d+Au collisions at 200GeV and smaller energies in 2016 using a special trigger which enhances statistics for the very central collisions. Here we show our recent anisotropic flow measurements for fully reconstructed $\pi^0$ at $-0.35<\eta<+0.35$ in d+Au collisions.

        $\rm \Xi_{c}^{0}$ reconstruction via hadronic decay channel in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV 20m

        The high collision energies available at the LHC allow for an abundant production of heavy quarks (charm and beauty), which are sensitive probes for investigating the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. Due to their large masses, they are produced in initial hard parton scattering processes on a timescale shorter than the QGP formation time and experience the whole system evolution. There have been extensive researches regarding the production of charm mesons, such as $\rm D^{0}$, $\rm D^{+}$, $\rm D^{*+}$, $\rm D^{+}_{s}$, in order to investigate the interactions of charm quarks with the QGP constituents and the transport properties of the medium. The measurement of charm-baryon production, and in particular the baryon-to-meson ratios, provides unique information on hadronisation mechanisms, constraining the role of coalescence and testing the predicted presence of diquark states in the QGP.

        Measurements of charm-baryon production in pp collisions are important to set up a benchmark for Pb-Pb collisions and provide essential tests of pQCD calculations and models of charm hadronisation process. In this poster, the status and performance of the $\rm \Xi_{c}^{0}$ baryon measurements via the hadronic decay channel $\rm \Xi_{c}^{0} \rightarrow \pi^{+} \Xi^{-}$ (and its charge conjugate) in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV will be reported.

        $K^*(892)^0$ and $\overline{K^*}(892)^0$ production in p+p interactions at SPS energies from NA61/SHINE 20m

        The NA61/SHINE hadron physics program focuses on a search for the critical point and on studies of the properties of the onset of deconfinement in strongly interacting matter. For this purpose the phase diagram is scanned by changing the collision energy (from 13A to 150/158A GeV/c) and the size of the colliding system (from p+p to Pb+Pb).

        The main topic of this talk are preliminary results on $K^*(892)^0$ and $\overline{K^*}(892)^0$ meson production in p+p interactions at beam momentum 40-158 GeV/c obtained by the NA61/SHINE experiment. The analysis of $K^*(892)^0$ was performed with a novel template method in the $K^+\pi^-$ decay channel. The results include the double differential spectra $d^2n/(dydp_T)$, $d^2n/(m_Tdm_Tdy)$ as well as yields dn/dy. The measured mass of the $K^*(892)^0$ as a function of transverse momentum is also presented and compared to other published results. Finally, the multiplicity of $K^*(892)^0$ and the ratio of <$K^*(892)^0$>/<$K^{+/-}$> as a function of system size will be presented together with the results from other experiments.

        (Non-)Strange particle production at RHIC and LHC energies using HYDJET++ 20m

        Recent experimental and theoretical obsevations suggest that production of (multi-)strange hadrons and charged hadrons in (non-)deformed nuclei is a complex physical process. The properties of charged hadrons produced in deformed nucleus collisions at RHIC and LHC energies contradict many of the theoretical models result including two-component Monte Carlo Glauber model. Unlike light hadrons, the production mechanism of (multi-)strange hadrons is quite involved as they do not simply produce according to their statistical weights as described in grand canonical ensemble. In recent past, several efforts have been made to provide a mechanism for (non-)strange hadron production in symmetric and asymmetric heavy ion collision experiments. However, an unified theoretical or simulation model which reproduce the multiplicity distribution of (multi-)strange hadrons alongwith multiplicity of charged hadrons is still lacking. In this article, we have used HYDJET++ model to calculate multiplicity distribution of (non-)strange hadrons with various control parameter in symmetric collision of (non-)deformed nuclei at RHIC and LHC energies. We have calculated the pseudorapidity distribution, transverse momentum distribution and elliptic flow distribution of charged hadrons with different control parameters.We observed that HYDJET++ along with certain parameters can adequately provide a unified model for light as well as strange hadron production in various type of collisions.

        [Poster] Using Ξ(1820) baryons to test for parity doubling at ALICE 20m

        We report the first measurement of the Ξ(1820) baryon at LHC energies by reconstructing its decay to Λ-Κ in pp collisions at 13 TeV. Recent lattice calculations on parity doubling indicate that the masses of negative-parity particles, such as Ξ(1820), may decrease at the critical temperature, while the masses of positive-parity partners, i.e. the Ξ(1530), do not. Furthermore, the lifetime of the Ξ(1820) is short enough that it may be suppressed in high-multiplicity collisions, as has been observed for K*(892) and ρ(770). Studying Ξ(1820) also allows us to gain a better understanding of the spectrum of excited hyperon states, with implications for our understanding of the hadron resonance gas. We have successfully reconstructed the Ξ(1820) using ALICE data from 2015-2018 and measured its mass, width, and yield as a function of the transverse momentum and collision multiplicity. These studies performed in small collision systems will serve as a baseline for future measurements of the Ξ(1820) in p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions.

        A Comprehensive Study of Bottomonium Production in Heavy-ion Collision 20m

        One of the important goals of heavy-ion collision experiments is to test the predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics(QCD). One such QCD prediction is the formation of Quark-Gluon Plasma(QGP) in the heavy-ion collision experiments. Quarkonia suppression has been suggested as a sign of formation of QGP in heavy ion collision, where it could exist as a transient state. We have developed a model to predict the suppression of quarkonia in QGP. It incorporates quarkonia production and suppression due to hot nuclear matter effects like color screening, collisional damping, gluonic dissociation and cold nuclear matter effect namely, nuclear shadowing. We have considered the possibility of regeneration of quarkonia due to correlated/uncorrelated quark and anti-quark pair in QGP medium. Since our model had employed Bjorken's (1+1)-dimensional hydrodynamics, we were restricted to predict suppression at mid-rapidity only. A complete rapidity dependence of suppression was also missing in our previous work. Both of these shortcomings are taken care by switching to (3+1)-dimensional relativistic hydrodynamics using MUSIC, a C++ code. MUSIC uses Kurganov-Tadmor algorithm to solve hydrodynamic conservation equations. In the present work, we compare the bottomonium suppression calculated by using our current (3+1)-dimensional expansion based model with the experimentally measured suppression, $R_{AA}$ as a function of centrality, transverse momentum, and rapidity.

        A hydrodynamic approach for multiplicity fluctuations in heavy-ion collisions 20m

        It is understood that multiplicity fluctuations serve as one of the important observables for the study of the critical endpoint in the beam energy scan program of RHIC.
        As a matter of fact, the problem is rather subtle, and many different factors may potentially affect the observable in question.
        In this work, we take into consideration the thermal fluctuations, resonance decay, as well as the hydrodynamic expansion of the system.
        In particular, we focus on the noncritical aspects of the topic and investigate the multiplicity fluctuations in heavy-ion collisions by using a hydrodynamic model.
        Subsequently, we evaluate the effects of initial state fluctuations and resonance decay.
        The obtained results are compared to those obtained by the statistical model as well as the experimental data.

        A MAPS based Inner Tracking System of the Multi-Purpose Detector at the NICA collider 20m

        The Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) is being constructed to study the properties of extremely dense nuclear matter formed in relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions at NICA energies. The yields of strange and charmed particles are the important observables sensitive to critical phenomena in phase transitions of the QGP-matter at high net-baryon density. Highly efficient registration of such short-lived products of nuclear interactions using vertex silicon detectors will play a key role in the analysis of the possible onset of deconfinement in nuclear matter.
        An Inner Tracking System (ITS) based on the Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors (MAPS) is under design by the emerging MPD ITS collaboration in Dubna and Wuhan. The ultra-light carbon fiber structure carries five layers of CMOS ALPIDE sensors recently elaborated by the ALICE collaboration. The two layers of the Outer Barrel (OB) are built out of 42 staves developed for the new ALICE ITS to be installed at CERN next year. The MPD ITS mainframe mechanics and the OB installation is planned to be completed in 2023. The Inner Barrel (IB) will use novel MAPS sensors of enlarged area and reduced thickness to be developed together with the ALICE collaboration within 2020-2025 and installed after the reduction of the diameter of the MPD beam pipe to optimal value of 38 mm will become possible. The poster presents the main details of the MPD ITS layout, computer simulations of the pointing resolution gained with the system, as well as a quality assessment of the MPD tracking system including ITS and Time Projection Chamber used for the reconstruction of the multi-strange hyperons and the D-mesons produced in the central Au-Au collisions at \sqrt{S_{NN}} = 9 GeV.

        A multivariate approach to measuring low-mass dielectrons in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Correlated dielectron pairs are a very promising probe to study the quark-gluon plasma, a deconfined state of quarks and gluons predicted by lattice quantum chromodynamics calculations in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Electrons reach the detector without significant final state interactions. In addition, the low-mass dielectron spectrum comes from various sources, i.e. Dalitz and resonance decays of pseudoscalar and vector mesons, semi-leptonic decays of charm and beauty hadrons, as well as the radiation from the thermalised system, which are produced at all stages of the collision. Therefore, dielectron pairs can be used to study the space-time evolution of the system.

        While pp collisions provide an important baseline measurement in vacuum for heavy-ion studies, p-Pb collisions can be used to disentangle cold from hot nuclear matter effects. Moreover, recent studies in small colliding systems (pp and p-Pb) showed intriguing collective behaviours similar to observations previously done in heavy-ion collisions. They require further investigations in particular as a function of the event charged-particle multiplicity. Searching for the thermal signatures through dielectrons is also important in small systems to disentangle the initial and final state effects.

        In this poster the latest status of the dielectron analysis with ALICE in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV will be presented. Data recorded in 2016 are used. Furthermore, it will be discussed how a multivariate approach can be useful for the measurements of low-mass dielectrons.

        An object-oriented software framework for anisotropic flow analysis 20m

        We present an object-oriented software framework for performing the anisotropic flow analysis in collisions of ions and hadrons. The framework operates on flow Q-vectors and provides an abstraction layer for the analysis of two and multi-particle correlation functions. Its modular design and flexible interface allows to use it as an external software package, which fits the scope of any experimental setup.

        The current version implements commonly used flow observables, multi-differential corrections of Q-vectors with the possibility for data preprocessing to account for detector azimuthal non-uniformity. The extension of the core functionality and the definition of new observables and correction steps is straightforward. The framework supports multi-differential flow analyses with statistical uncertainty propagation based on subsampling and/or bootstrapping algorithms. To illustrate the flexibility and powerful functionality of the framework, examples of application to data analyses of ALICE at the LHC, NA49 and NA61/SHINE at SPS, and the future CBM experiment at FAIR will be shown.

        Analytical solutions and attractors of relativistic viscous hydrodynamics for Bjorken flow 20m

        We consider causal higher order theories of relativistic viscous hydrodynamics in the case of one-dimensional boost-invariant expansion and study the associated dynamical attractor. We obtain the evolution equations for inverse Reynolds number as a function of inverse Knudsen number. The solutions of these equations exhibit attractor behavior which we analyze in the context of Lyapunov exponents from several different techniques. We also compare attractors of second-order Muller-Israel-Stewart (MIS) theory, transient DNMR theory, third-order theory and exact solution of Boltzmann equation in the relaxation-time approximation. We demonstrate that the third-order theory provides a better approximation to the exact kinetic theory attractor compared to MIS and DNMR theories. Further, we find analytical solutions for these higher-order theories by assuming different forms of shear relaxation time and use these solutions to study the analytical attractors. Finally, we propose a new way to characterize and uniquely determine the hydrodynamic attractors, as well as the Lyapunov exponents, by studying the universal behavior of these solutions at small as well as large Knudsen numbers.

        Anisotropic flow measurements from the NA61/SHINE and NA49 beam momentum scan programs at CERN SPS 20m

        The NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS has recently extended its program for the energy scan with Pb ions. In the past, the NA49 experiment, which preceded the NA61/SHINE, has also recorded data for Pb–Pb collisions at different energies. Together, the two experiments cover wide range of collision energies in the beam momentum range of 13–150A GeV/c provided by CERN SPS. Analysis of the new NA61/SHINE data and revision of the existing NA49 using modern measurement techniques allow for a new comprehensive systematic study of the collective flow relative to the spectator plane. The measurements at the lowest energy available at the SPS are also relevant for the preparation of the Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) heavy-ion experiment at the future FAIR facility in Darmstadt.

        We will present new NA61/SHINE results on directed and elliptic flow measurement in Pb–Pb collisions at 13 and 30A GeV/c relative to the spectator plane determined with the Projectile Spectator Detector. Also a new analysis of 40 and 158A GeV data collected by the NA49 experiment using forward spectator calorimeters (VETO and RCAL) will be shown. The flow coefficients are reported as a function of rapidity and transverse momentum in different classes of collision centrality.

        Anomaly Effects in Transport Coefficients 20m

        Recently anomaly related transports have attracted lot of interests in various fields. Ranged from low energy physics and in condensed matter up to high energy physics and in heavy ion collisions, physicists are interested to study the effects of microscopic anomaly over the macroscopic scales. Historically this stream is initiated by the work of Vilenkin in 1979 [ A.~Vilenkin, Phys. Rev. D 20, 1807 (1979)] and afterwards physicists try to study these anomalous transports in various subjects such as in weak regime by using the Chiral Kinetic Theory (CKT) or in strong regime using the ADS/CFT correspondence and fluid-gravity conjecture. Based on this motivation, I want to review our recent works in our groups which study anomaly related issues by using CKT approach and chiral hydrodynamics. To this purpose, first I want to mention about hydro modes for relativistic anomalous fluid and then introduce the notion of equilibrium frame. After that I will try to address the magneto transports in an anomalous fluid by using the linear response theory. For weakly interacting particles this study will be performed by using the CKT, while for strongly interacting matter this will be done by using the gauge/gravity duality and the notion of magnetized brane.

        Anomaly with a non-relativistic dispersion relation 20m

        we will show the results with different explanations in each methods. For example, the anomaly disappears for the lack of UV divergence in one loop feynman diagram with field theory method. And in wigner function methods, it canceled in intergration of 4-D momentum.

        Application of Principal Component Analysis on Collective Flow 20m

        Various flow observables, defined based on the Fourier decomposition, have provided valuable information on the initial state fluctuations, final state correlations and the QGP properties. In spite of the success of the flow measurements and the hydrodynamic descriptions, one essential question is why the Fourier expansion is a natural way to analyze the flow data. In this talk, I will address this question with one of the machine learning techniques, called the Principal Component Analysis (PCA). In more details, we will investigate if a machine (unsupervised learning technique) could directly discover flow from the huge amount of data of the relativistic fluid systems without explicit instructions from human beings.

        After apply PCA to the raw data of hydrodynamic simulations, we found that the obtained PCA eigenvectors are similar to but not identical with the traditional Fourier bases. Correspondingly, the PCA defined flow harmonics vn are also similar to the traditional vn for n = 2 and 3, but largely deviated from the Fourier ones with n≥4 . A further study on the symmetric cumulants and the Pearson coefficients indicates that mode-coupling effects are reduced for these flow harmonics defined by PCA. Our work also demonstrated the hydrodynamic system is not highly non-linear as generally believed before, which should be reevaluated with such PCA bases for the flow definition.

        Azimuthal anisotropy correlations and fluctuations in PbPb collisions at the LHC energies from HYDJET++ and AMPT model 20m

        Flow correlations and fluctuations are sensitive probes to the initial geometry and the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in relativistic heavy ion collisions. Model comparisons are essential to decipher the properties of the QGP. In this talk, we study the correlations between flow harmonics $v_2$, $v_3$, and $v_4$ over a wide centrality range with two-particle correlations in PbPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{\mathrm{NN}}}}=2.76$ TeV simulated by the HYDJET++ and AMPT models. We compare the model results to the experimental data from ATLAS and find both models are in good agreement with data for $v_2$-$v_3$ correlation. For $v_2$-$v_4$ and $v_3$-$v_4$ correlations, while AMPT is still in good agreement, HYDJET++ gives stronger slopes in the correlations than the ATLAS data. The AMPT model qualitatively predicts a boomerang-like shape in the correlations as observed in the experimental data, however, they quantitatively disagree. The HYDJET++ model fails completely to reproduce such a boomerang shape. We study flow fluctuations by the $v_2$ obtained with different Q-cumulant orders, namely $v_2\{2\}, v_2\{4\}, v_2\{6\},$ and $v_2\{8\}$. In particular, we study the skewness, a measure of the asymmetry of the $v_2$ distribution, by the ratio of
        $v_{2}\{6\} - v_{2}\{8\}$ and $v_{2}\{4\} - v_{2}\{6\}$. The HYDJET++ model
        calculation shows good agreement with results reported by the CMS and ALICE

        Azimuthal anisotropy measurement of strange hadrons in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 27 and 54.4 GeV at STAR 20m

        The hadronic interaction cross section for (multi)strange hadrons are expected to be small. Hence, the study of azimuthal anisotropy of (multi)strange hadrons allows one to access the collective properties of early stages in heavy-ion collisions. The STAR experiment recently recorded high statistics data for Au+Au collisions at a new centre-of-mass energies ($\sqrt{s_{NN}}$) of 54.4 GeV ($\sim$1.3 billion events) and 27 GeV ($\sim$600 million events). The newly installed Event Plane Detector (EPD) allows one to measure the azimuthal anisotropy of particles with high precision and less non-flow contributions using event plane with large gaps in rapidity.

        In this poster, we will present the second-order azimuthal anisotropy ($v_{2}$) of (multi)strange hadrons ($K^{0}_{S}$, $\phi$, $\Lambda$, $\Xi$, $\Omega$) measured at midrapidity ($|y|$ $< $0.5) as a function of transverse momentum ($p_{T}$) and centrality at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=27 and 54.4 GeV. Measurement will be carried out using event planes from both Time Projection Chamber ($|\eta|$$<$1.0) and EPD (2.1$<$$|\eta|$$<$5.1). High precision test of the number of constituent quark scaling of $v_{2}$ (including light hadrons) will be shown. The results will be compared to transport-based model calculations. Finally, the physics goals of such measurements at the other $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 19.6, 11.5, 9.2 and 7.7 GeV of beam energy scan phase II will be discussed.

        Azimuthal anisotropy of heavy-flavour decay electrons in p-Pb collisions with ALICE 20m

        Two-particle angular correlations are used to investigate properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. They are sensitive to different effects of the evolution of the collision, such as collective effects, initial conditions and jet properties.

        In small systems (such as pp or p--A collisions), an unexpected double-ridge structure has been observed in the two-particle angular correlations of charged hadrons. The double-ridge is similar to the one observed in A--A collisions, where the physical origin is usually credited to collective behaviour. This structure can be quantified using a Fourier decomposition of the $\Delta \varphi$ distribution. These Fourier coefficients can be factorized to single-particle $v_n$ coefficients, related to the azimuthal distribution of the particles. The interpretation of this phenomena in small system is still in debate, especially concerning the role of hydrodynamics and initial conditions. Extending this measurement to heavy-flavour particles could provide further insight on the initial and final-state origin of the anisotropies in these collision systems.

        In this poster, the results of the heavy-flavour hadron decay electron $v_2$ in high-multiplicity p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV will be presented. The measurement was performed with ALICE at mid-rapidity ($|\eta| < 0.8$). The $v_2$ was obtained by calculating two-particle correlations between heavy-flavour hadron decay electrons and unidentified charged particles in high-multiplicity collisions. The jet contribution to the two-particle correlation distribution was subtracted using the using low-multiplicity collisions.

        The measurement of modification of jet yields in heavy-ion collisions provides a powerful method to probe the dynamics of the hot, dense medium formed in these collisions at the LHC. Jet quenching in heavy-ion collisions is expected to depend on the flavor of the fragmenting parton. For light partons, energy loss via gluon bremsstrahlung is expected to dominate, while in the case of heavy-quark-initiated jets, collisional energy loss may play a more important role. In this poster, we report in detail the new measurement of b-tagged jets production reconstructed from a jet-associated muon in $pp$ and Pb+Pb at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 5.02 TeV collision energy using the large statistics of the recently collected 2018 ATLAS data.

        Background study of the CME-related correlations in heavy-ion collisions within a multiphase transport mode 20m

        The Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) manifests itself via a separation of electric charge along the direction of the magnetic field, produced by spectator protons in heavy-ion collisions. The experimental searches for the CME, based on the charge-dependent angular correlations [1] have, however, remained inconclusive till date, because the observed features of charge separation in data are also compatible with non-CME background sources. Recently, the CMS collaboration attempted to disambiguate the origin of charge separation by measuring charge-dependent angular correlations or $\gamma$-correlators with respect to second-order ($\Psi_{2}$) and third-order ($\Psi_{3}$) symmetry planes defined as $\gamma_{112}$ and $\gamma_{123}$ respectively, in p+Pb and Pb+Pb collisions [2]. The idea is that an equality is expected in $\frac{\Delta\gamma_{112}}{\Delta\delta \times v_{2}}$ ($\kappa_{112}$) and $\frac{\Delta\gamma_{123}}{\Delta\delta \times v_{3}}$ ($\kappa_{123}$), if the charge separations are dominated by non-CME backgrounds \cite{CMS_3p}. The CMS measurements indeed reveal such equality across light-ion and heavy-ion collision systems, suggesting the observed charge separation in data arises from non-CME background contributions to a large extent. However, the signals and backgrounds in data are so entangled that such an interpretation may be naive. Instead, non-CME background models could provide a testing ground to verify or falsify such relations. In this poster, we will present results of different harmonics of $\gamma$-correlators calculated from a charge-conserved version of a multiphase transport (AMPT) model. In contrary to the CMS expectation, the AMPT model calculations show $(\kappa_{132} \approx 1) < (\kappa_{112} \approx 1.3) < (\kappa_{123} \approx 2)$.

        Baryon number fluctuations from DSEs 20m

        We present new results for fluctuations of the baryon number for QCD with
        Nf=2+1 quark flavours at non-zero temperature and chemical potential [1].
        These are extracted from a framework based on a combination of lattice QCD
        and Dyson-Schwinger equations. In previous works ([2], see [3] for a review)
        we found a critical end point in the region ($T^c,\mu_B^c$)=(120,500) MeV.
        We discuss the changes of ratios of fluctuations up to fourth order along
        and below the transition line for temperatures and baryon chemical potential
        up to and beyond the critical end point.
        Comparing with preliminary STAR data for the skewness and kurtosis ratios,
        our results are compatible with the scenario of a critical end point at
        large chemical potential and slightly offset from the freeze-out line.
        We also discuss the caveats involved in this comparison.

        Beam test results of the sPHENIX HCal prototype 20m

        The sPHENIX detector at BNL’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) will quantify the properties of quark-gluon plasma created in relativistic heavy ions collisions with a focus on the measurements of jets and Upsilon states. A crucial component to the sPHENIX detector design for jet measurements is the hadronic calorimeter (HCal) which is located outside of the solenoid magnet and composed of alternating layers of tapered steel plates and scintillator tiles. sPHENIX has performed four tests of the HCal prototypes at Fermilab since 2015 and pre-production design of the EMCal and HCal in the η∼1 configuration was tested at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility as experiment T-1044 in the spring of 2018. We will present the results of 2018 HCal prototype beam test, the results of sPHENIX-like calorimeter system and corresponding GEANT4 simulations. The energy linearity and resolution of pions and electrons will also be presented.

        Beam-energy dependence of spatial and temporal characteristics of shape-selected events in Au+Au collisions at STAR 20m

        Femtoscopic measurements can be leveraged to gain insight into the expansion dynamics of the hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions. This poster presentation will report and discuss excitation functions for shape-selected two-pion HBT radii ($R_{out}$, $R_{side}$ and $R_{long}$) measured for a a broad range of collision centrality and average pair transverse momentum ($k_{T}$) with the STAR detector. The shape selections were accomplished via cuts on the distributions of the second-order $Q_2$ vector [1]. The excitation functions, which span the full range of the RHIC beam energy scan ($\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 7.7-200 GeV), indicate clear sensitivities to the magnitude of the $Q_2$ vector which give insight into the expansion dynamics. The connection between the magnitude of the $Q_2$ vector and the spatiotemporal characteristics of the quark-gluon plasma produced in the collisions will be discussed.

        Beyond scattering and hypernuclei experiments: $p-\Lambda$ and $p-\Sigma^0$ correlation studies at ALICE 20m

        Recent ALICE results have demonstrated that femtoscopic measurements in pp and p-Pb collisions provide an unprecedented opportunity to study the short range part of the strong interaction.

        Femtoscopy is a technique to extract information on the emission source and interaction potential from correlations between particles with low relative momentum. In this talk we will use femtoscopy to study the $p-\Lambda$ and $p-\Sigma^0$ interactions on the scale of the particle emitting source, which is 1 fm or smaller.

        Existing data on the $p-\Lambda$ interaction from scattering experiments only probe large energies, and are not sensitive to the opening of the $N-\Sigma$ channel. In this talk we will show that ALICE data from high-multiplicity pp collisions allows us to measure the $p-\Lambda$ correlation function with exceptional precision at low momentum and at the $N-\Sigma$ threshold, and are thus capable of providing quantitative constraints to existing theoretical models, such as chiral effective theory calculations.

        Furthermore, no $p-\Sigma^0$ scattering data exist, and as a result the theoretical models are poorly constrained. The ALICE data allow us to perform the first ever measurement of the $p-\Sigma^0$ correlation function and make comparisons to state-of-the-art theoretical models.

        Bottom and Charm production in $p$+$p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=200 GeV measured by PHENIX 20m

        The study of the charm and bottom interacting with the QGP strongly relies on the precise measurement of their yields in p+p collisions, since the theoretical calculations of the yields have large uncertainties. The PHENIX collaboration has measured the semi-leptonic decay yields of charm and bottom hadrons and the non-prompt $J/\psi$ yield from B meson decays in 200 GeV $p$+$p$ collisions, using the distance-of-closest approach measured in the vertex detectors installed at mid ($|y|<0.35$) and forward ($1.2<|y|<2.2$) rapidities. This presentation will show the final results on the semi-leptonic decays of charm and bottom hadrons at mid-rapidity and the status of the analysis of non-prompt $J/\psi$ and other measurements at forward rapidity.

        Bottomonia Suppression in Heavy-Ion Collisions from AdS/CFT 20m

        We compute for the first time the suppression of bottomonia in a strongly coupled QGP and compare the results to those from a weakly coupled QGP and to data. Using imaginary time techniques we numerically determine the real and imaginary parts of the binding energy of $\Upsilon$(1S) in (complex) potentials derived from AdS/CFT and from pQCD. We confirm the strong coupling binding energies by independently deriving the meson spectrum in AdS/CFT using semiclassical, rotating open strings.

        We then implement the complex binding energies in a suppression model to determine the $\Upsilon$(1S) nuclear modification factor in $\sqrt{s}_{NN}=2.76$ TeV Pb+Pb collisions. The simplest strong-coupling, $p_T$-independent potential leads to a significant oversuppression of $\Upsilon$(1S) compared to data while the results from the pQCD-derived potential are consistent with data. Lastly, we investigate the consequences of the different velocity dependencies of potential models on the bottomonia $R_{AA}(p_T)$.

        Bottomonium anisotropic flow from an escape mechanism 20m

        Bottomonia are produced mostly in the initial stage of a heavy ion collision. Once created, any subsequent interaction with the medium can as a first approximation be dealt with as leading to dissociation. In that picture, the bottomonia surviving until the final state are those that escaped any interaction with the medium.
        We compute the anisotropic flow of bottomonia arising from their differential survival probability in an asymmetric medium of massless particles, using different assumptions for the microscopic details of the latter. In particular, we show that the Fourier coefficients $v_n$ for the bottomonium flow are sensitive to the initial eccentricities of both the bulk medium geometry and the bottomonium distribution.

        Bottomonium production in p+p and Pb+Pb collisions with ATLAS 20m

        Bottomonium, a bound state of a bottom quark and its antiquark, is an excellent probe of the hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions at LHC. The ATLAS collaboration collected the large datasets of $pp$ and Pb+Pb collisions in 2017 and 2018 corresponding to integrated luminosities of 242 pb$^{-1}$ and 1.39 nb$^{-1}$ respectively, at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of 5.02 TeV. In this poster, bottomonium states are reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel in the rapidity range of $|y| < 1$, and their production in PbPb collisions is compared to that in pp collisions to extract the nuclear modification factor, $R_{AA}$, as a function of event centrality and transverse momentum. In addition, the relative suppression of the excited states Y(nS) to the ground state Y(1S) is studied.

        Bulk properties of QCD matter using S-matrix based hadron resonance gas model 20m

        Ideal Hadron Resonance Gas (HRG) model is a well-known tool to describe hadron multiplicities in relativistic nuclear collisions and for modelling hadronic equation of state. The model relies on the assumption that all hadronic resonances are free particles, which is valid, given that their decay widths are negligible. However, when the temperature is close to the crossover region, the model does not agree with lattice QCD data for observables like second order charge susceptibility ($\chi^2_Q$), the difference between second and fourth order baryon susceptibility ($\chi^2_B -\chi^4_B$) and the baryon-strange correlator ($C_{BS}$). Interaction among constituent hadrons is expected to affect these observables. We have implemented interactions among hadrons in the HRG model using $S$-matrix framework. The elements of $S$-matrix are related to the two body scattering phase shifts of interacting hadrons. The positive phase shifts, related to attractive interactions are calculated using $K$-matrix formalism while the negative phase shift, related to repulsive interactions are obtained from experimentally measured phase shifts. We observe a good agreement between results from our $S$-matrix formalism and lattice QCD data for the aforementioned higher order susceptibilities along with bulk properties like the speed of sound and interaction measure etc. Further, we use the $S$-matrix formalism to calculate the temperature ($T$) and baryon chemical potential ($\mu_B$) dependence of transport coefficients (shear viscosity, bulk viscosity, heat conductivity and diffusion coefficient) for the multi-component system of hadrons. Our calculation predicts lower values of shear viscosity coefficient as a function of temperature as compared to previous results in the literature.

        Can jet quenching constrain the evolution history of parton showers? 20m

        In the soft and collinear limit, the choice of evolution scale in a parton shower algorithm is ambiguous and several options have been implemented in existing Monte Carlo event generators for proton-proton collisions. However, the resulting space-time evolution could result in subtle differences depending on the particular choice. In this work we quantify measurable consequences of the choice of the evolution variable and show how the implications of such a choice propagates into jet quenching observables.
        We have developed a parton shower algorithm for a general evolution variable, that includes the virtuality, angle, transverse momentum and formation time. We study the interplay between the shower history for different evolution variables and the phase space affected by parton energy loss. In particular, we implement effects of jet quenching in the dense and dilute medium limits, and highlight the role of color coherence effects [1,2]. We compare the results of the different evolutions to existing Monte Carlo shower implementations on the parton level by analyzing primary and secondary Lund planes. Finally, we study the sensitivity of quenched jets to the choice of evolution variable by confronting our results for certain key observables, such as the inclusive jet spectrum, the (groomed) momentum sharing fraction or the jet mass, against theoretical expectations and experimental data.

        Causality and dissipation in relativistic polarizeable fluids 20m

        We examine the relativistic perfect fluid limit, defined as the fastest possible local equilibration,
        in a medium with polarizeability, defined as a non-zero local equilibrium partition of angular
        momentum into spin and vorticity. We show that the Lagrangian approach is best suited to
        analyzing this situation, as it can be used to efficiently avoid issues such as the breakdown of
        isotropy, the ambiguity of the energy-momentum tensor definition and the lack of closure of
        conservation equations. We obtain the Lagrangian and the equations of motion of an ideal
        relativistic fluid with polarization, linearize them, and show that to restore causality a relaxation
        term linking vorticity and polarization, analogous to the Israel-Stewart term linking viscous forces
        and gradients,is required. We close with an discussion of the phenomenological applicability of the
        hydrodynamics with polarization developed here, focusing on the recent finding of Lambda
        polarization and resonance spin alignement, and discussing weather observables sensitive to earlytime polarization exist .

        Centrality dependence of bottom and charm production at PHENIX 20m

        Bottom and charm production is a powerful tool to investigate the properties of
        quark gluon plasma created in high energy heavy ion collisions. Heavy flavor production is calculable by perturbative QCD because of their large mass.
        Once produced, they traverse the QGP and suffer the hot medium effects such as
        energy losses. The collisional and radiative mechanisms play an important role of the energy losses
        for low and high $p_T$, respectively. Therefore, it is crucial to measure the medium modifications of bottom and charm production with broad $p_T$ ranges.
        PHENIX experiment at RHIC studied the heavy flavor production in Au+Au collisions
        using the measurement of single electrons from the heavy flavor decays. The Silicon vertex detector, VTX, provides the precise tracking capability, enabling the separation of electrons from the bottom and charm decays by measuring the distance of the closest approach to the collision vertex. Recently, we updated the $p+p$ baseline measurement of bottom and charm productions with high statistics.

        Centrality determination with the Event Plane Detector for fluctuation measurements from STAR 20m

        Event-by-event fluctuation of conserved quantities such as net baryon, net strangeness or net charge is considered to be a powerful tool to find the critical point (CP) on the Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) phase diagram. To map out the QCD phase diagram, the Beam Energy Scan I (BES-I) program has been carried out at RHIC and non-monotonic behavior of the 4th-order net-proton cumulants was found around low collision energy, which could be a signature of the CP. In order to further investigate the behavior of conserved quantities, BES-II has started in 2019 focusing on lower collision energies. For the experiment, a new detector named Event Plane Detector (EPD) was installed. The EPD is a scintillation detector located in the large rapidity region and expected to improve the determination of collision centrality with less self-correlation effect in the fluctuation measurements. In this poster, results of fluctuation measurements in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=27\ \textrm{GeV}$ will be shown and new centrality determination with the EPD will be discussed.

        Challenges and prospects for the Silicon Tracking System of CBM in the first tests with heavy ions collisions 20m

        The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at the FAIR facility aims to explore the QCD phase diagram at very high baryon densities, where a first order phase transition from hadronic to partonic matter as well as a chiral phase transition is expected to occur.
        The Silicon Tracking System is the central detector for momentum measurement and charged-particle identification. It is designed to measure up to 1000 charged particles in A+A collisions between 0.1 and 10 MHz interaction rate, to achieve a momentum resolution in a 1 Tm dipole magnetic field of better than 2%, and to be capable of identifying complex particle decays topologies, e.g., such with strangeness content. The STS employs high-granularity double-sided silicon strip sensors matching the non-uniform track density, and fast self-triggering electronics with a free streaming data acquisition system and online event selection. With the resulting 1.8 million readout channels, it poses the most demanding requirements regarding bandwidth and density of all CBM detectors.
        In the context of FAIR phase 0, the mini-CBM (mCBM) project aims to prove the concept of free-streaming data generation, transport and reconstruction, as well as to provide a test setup for all CBM subsystems using the existing GSI/FAIR accelerator facilities. The STS deployed a demonstrator of one small tracking station with full readout chain. The prototype, called mSTS, has been operated in Ag+Au collisions at energies above 1.59 AGeV and overall interaction rates up to 40 MHz, which is similar to a realistic experimental scenario. This allows evaluating the detector performance integrated with other subsystems into a free-streaming DAQ. This presentation aims to describe the main technical challenges and prospects for the STS and to summarize the results of the latest test campaign.

        The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment is a fixed-target heavy-ion physics experiment at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany. The CBM physics program aims at exploring the QCD phase diagram at very high baryon densities. For high-statistics measurements of rare probes, CBM is designed to cope with very high interaction rates up to 10 MHz. To achieve this high rate capability, the CBM experiment will be equipped with fast and radiation hard detectors employing free-streaming readout electronics. The Silicon Tracking System (STS) is the essential component for tracking up to 1000 charged particles per event in A+A collision. The experimental conditions pose demanding requirements in terms of channel density and read-out bandwidth. The STS-XYTER is a dedicated ASIC for the readout of the double-sided silicon micro-strip sensors. It is a low power, self-triggering ASIC with 128 channels, 5-bit ADC charge and 14-bit timing information. It needs to be fully integrated into a very confined space and it should perform in a highly irradiated environment with strong magnetic field. Several tests are carried out to check chip functionalities, full detector modules performance and integration aspects. An overview of the frontend electronic, module tests and experimental results, for different data taking scenarios, will be presented, including first measurements with a full system test-setup in heavy-ion collisions at SIS18.

        Charge dependent flow and the search for the chiral magnetic wave at the LHC with ALICE 20m

        One of the novel anomalous chiral effects, the chiral magnetic wave (CMW), has been experimentally searched by using the charge-dependent anisotropic flow in recent years. The observed linear dependence between the charge asymmetry and the flow of the positively and negatively charged hadrons, however, still remains inconclusive owing to the existence of background effects such as local charge conservation entwined with the collectivity of the collision system.

        Charged particle multiplicity dependence of $\Lambda(1520)$ production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Resonances are useful tools to study the properties of the hadronic medium produced in high energy heavy-ion collisions, due to their short lifetime. In particular, the baryonic resonance $\Lambda(1520)$ is important because of its lifetime ($\tau \sim$ 12.6 fm/$\it c$), which lies in between the lifetimes of $ K^*$ and $\phi$ resonances.
        Its study will indicate the dominance of re-scattering or regeneration in the yields and support results obtained for other resonances having different lifetimes. The reconstruction of $\Lambda(1520)$ as a function of multiplicity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV has been performed via its hadronic decay channel. New measurements of the transverse momentum ($p_{\rm{T}}$) spectra, $p_{\rm{T}}$-integrated yield ($\langle dN/dy\rangle$), $\langle p_{\rm{T}}\rangle$ and $\Lambda(1520)/ \Lambda$ yield ratio in different multiplicity classes will be presented and discussed. The results obtained are expected to provide more information on strange resonance production and the system-size evolution of the hadronic phase in small systems. Furthermore, these results are important for studies of the multiplicity-dependent enhancement of multi-strange hadrons in small systems.

        Charged-particle multiplicity dependence of $\rm K^{*}(892)^{\rm \pm}$ resonance production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{\rm s}$ = 13 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Hadronic resonances have been shown to be good probes to investigate the late-stage evolution of ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Their lifetimes are comparable with the time scale of the fireball generated in these collisions. Therefore they are sensitive to the competing re-scattering and regeneration effects occurring in the hadronic phase, which modify particle momentum distributions and yields after hadronization.
        Recent measurements of resonance production in high-multiplicity proton-proton (pp) and proton-lead (p-Pb) collisions have shown the onset of phenomena typical of heavy-ion (Pb-Pb) collisions even in those smaller collision systems. In particular, there are hints of suppression of the $\rm K^{*}(892)^{\rm 0}$/$\rm K$ ratio with increasing charged-particle multiplicity. A study of $\rm K^{*}(892)^{\rm \pm}$ production can provide further evidence to confirm the observed trend.
        In this poster the measurement of $\rm K^{*\rm \pm}$ production at mid-rapidity in pp collisions at 13 TeV as a function of the charged-particle multiplicity will be presented and discussed. The measurements will be compared to results for the $\rm K^{*\rm 0}$, other collision systems and energies, and to theoretical models.

        Charged-particle multiplicity dependence of $\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$ and $\Xi(1530)^{0}$ production in pp collisions at 13 TeV with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Strangeness enhancement has been observed for several multi-strange hadrons in proton-proton (pp) collisions with increasing charged-particle multiplicity and is in remarkable agreement with measurements in p-Pb collisions. The yields of resonances with short lifetimes are sensitive to regeneration and re-scattering processes in the hadronic phase between chemical and kinetic freeze out. It is therefore interesting to study these resonances in pp collisions as a function of multiplicity to see if we can observe signs of a hadron-gas phase even in small collision systems. In this poster, the strange hyperon resonances $\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$ ($c\tau=5-5.5$ fm/$c$) and $\Xi(1530)^{0}$ ($c\tau=21.8$ fm/$c$) are studied as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$~TeV.

        Charm and beauty isolation in heavy flavor electron measurements in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 200 GeV at RHIC 20m

        Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are believed to be produced predominately in hard scattering processes at early stage of the collisions before the QGP production so they can pass through the hot-dense medium completely, and their production yields can be calculated by perturbative-QCD, which makes them ideal probes for QGP. According to the theoretical prediction, energy loss of heavy quarks is less than that of light quarks due to the suppression of the gluon radiation angle by the quark mass. Heavy quarks could be more difficult to be thermalized than light quarks in the hot-dense medium and moved following the collective flow during the expansion of the partonic matter. Because of its three times larger mass compared with that of charm, beauty could have different properties in terms of its interactions with QGP medium from charm.

        We develop a data-driven method to isolate charm and beauty contributions from the inclusive heavy flavor electrons based on the most recent open charm hadron measurements in minimum bias Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 200 GeV at RHIC. The individual electron nuclear modification factor ($R_{\rm AA}$) and elliptic flow ($v_2$) from charm and beauty decays will be reported. Model comparisons and discussions will also be given.

        Charm baryon production measurements in small systems with the ALICE experiment at the LHC 20m

        Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are an effective tool to study the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. Due to their large mass, they are produced during the early stages of the collisions in hard-scattering processes, on a time interval shorter than the QGP formation time. Thus, they experience the whole evolution of the system. The baryon-to-meson ratio is sensitive to the hadronisation mechanism. In particular, it is expected to be enhanced with respect to the proton-proton baseline if charm quarks hadronise via recombination with the surrounding light quarks in the QGP. Measurements of charm-baryon production in small systems (pp and p--Pb collisions) provide the reference necessary for interpreting results in Pb--Pb collisions. In addition, in pp collisions, they allow to study the hadronisation of charm quarks, and allow testing QCD calculations. Measurements in p--Pb collisions are fundamental to disentangle cold nuclear matter effects from those deriving from the presence of the QGP.

        In this contribution, the latest ALICE measurements on the $\Lambda_c$ baryon production and the $\Lambda_c / \rm D^0$ ratio in pp and p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 5.02 TeV will be presented. Results will be compared with theoretical expectations. In addition, the latest results on the multiplicity dependent production of the $\Lambda_c$ baryon in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV will be discussed. Furthermore, the measurement of the $\Xi_c$ baryon in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV will be presented. Finally, the latest updates on the measurements of the $\Xi_c$ baryon in pp and p--Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV will be discussed together with the status of the measurement of the $\Sigma_c$ baryon.

        Charm production in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Charm quarks are effective probes used for the investigation of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. They are produced in hard scattering processes on a timescale shorter than the QGP formation time and experience the whole system evolution.
        The measurement of charm-baryon production, and in particular the baryon-to-meson ratios, provides unique information on hadronisation mechanisms, constraining the role of coalescence and testing the predicted presence of diquark states in the QGP.
        Measurements of charm-baryon production in pp and p-Pb collisions are essential to establish a baseline for Pb-Pb collisions. In addition, the measurements in pp collisions provide critical tests of $p$QCD calculations and models of charm hadronisation in vacuum, while the measurements in p-Pb collisions are useful to study cold nuclear matter effects and the possible evolution with charged-particle multiplicity of the modification of charm hadronisation.
        In this poster, ALICE results of $\Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}~$ measurements in pp and p-Pb collisions will be presented. The comparison with model calculations will be discussed. Furthermore, the latest updates on the measurement of the total charm cross-section in pp and in p-Pb collisions will be discussed.

Measurements include prompt and from-b-decay components which are disentangled. The large increase in size of the data sample, compared to the 5 TeV sample collected in 2013, allows a remarkable improvement in the accuracy of the studies of nuclear matter effects.

        Chiral Kinetic Theory from High Density Effective Theory and Reparametrization Invariance 20m

        We redevelop the chiral kinetic theory (CKT) by exploiting the effective field theory method and find some disagreements at higher order of ($1/\mu$) from the earlier results. However, these disagreements are the same which have been pointed out by the off-shell effective theory formalism after identifying a cut-off. We address the discrepancies and by using the reparametrization invariance, we show that these disagreements are in fact expected due the choices of different degrees of freedom in effective theory and field theory. Further, we show that both methods yield the similar dynamics for chiral fermions.

        Chiral soliton lattice in dense matter under rotation 20m

        We study the anomaly-induced effects of dense matter under rotation. We show that the chiral perturbation theory under rotation has the topological term that accounts for the chiral vortical effect. We find that, due to the presence of this new term, the ground state of QCD under rotation is the chiral soliton lattice (CSL) of the neutral pion or $\eta^{\prime}$ meson. This state is a periodic array of topological solitons which spontaneously breaks parity and continuous translational symmetries. In particular, at high density, the CSL of the $\eta^{\prime}$ meson is energetically more favorable than the color-flavor locked color superconducting phase and its critical angular velocity is proportional to the QCD anomaly in the flavor symmetric case.

        We investigate the influence of rotation on the chiral condensate in strongly interacting matter. We develop a self-consistent theoretical framework to study the inhomogeneous chiral condensate and the possible chiral vortex state in rotating finite-size matter in four-fermion interaction theories. For sufficiently rapid rotation, the ground state can be a chiral vortex state, a type of topological defect in analogy to superfluids and superconductors. The vortex state exhibits pion condensation, providing a new mechanism to realize pseudoscalar condensation in strongly interacting matter.

        Cold Nuclear Matter Effects on J/$\psi$ and $\Upsilon$ Productions at RHIC with the STAR Experiment 20m

        Quarkonia are excellent probes for studying the properties of quark-gluon plasma formed in relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC. In order to fully understand the observed suppression of quarkonium production in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV, it is essential to understand well the cold nuclear matter (CNM) effects on the quarkonium production. Collisions of p+Au at the same energy can be used to study the CNM effects since these effects are expected to be dominant in such systems.

        In this poster, we present measurements of inclusive J/$\psi$ and $\Upsilon$ cross-sections in p+p collisions and their modification in p+Au collisions (the nuclear modification factor $R_{pAu}$) at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV. The results are extracted from data recorded by the STAR experiment in 2015 using the di-electron decay channel of the quarkonia. Comparisons are made to results from other experiments as well as to model calculations and physics implications are also discussed.

        Collective effects in pp collisions with the balance function of the identified particles 20m

        Experiments at RHIC and the LHC have lately reported intriguing results that indicate the presence of collectivity in small collision systems. The first hints originated from two-particle azimuthal correlations studies. The charge dependent part of such correlations is studied using the balance function in the relative pseudorapidity (∆η) and azimuthal angle (∆φ) of the particle pair. This measurement has been used as an effective tool to investigate the properties of the system created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions such as the hadronization time, the freeze-out conditions and to characterise its collective motion. In addition, the study of the balance function for different particle species in A-A collisions provides valuable insight to the chemical evolution of the QGP.

        In this poster, we report the measurement of the balance function of identified particles in pp collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV recorded by ALICE. This analysis, performed as a function of multiplicity, is an important piece in understanding if the underlying physics phenomena of particle production are of a common origin across collision systems.

        Collision energy dependence of the freeze-out in nuclear collisions at RHIC BES and the LHC 20m

        We reconstruct the freeze-out state of the fireball produced in central Au+Au or Pb+Pb collisions in the energy range from 7.7 GeV up to 2760 GeV per colliding nucleon pair. The data stem from the RHIC beam energy scan programme and from the LHC. Transverse momentum spectra of protons, antiprotons, charged pions and kaons have been fitted. Blast-wave model is used. Resonance decays are fully taken into account and the fitting procedure uses Bayesian method with Gaussian process emulator. It is assumed that the fireball freezes-out chemically at chemical freeze-out temperature and then evolves in partial chemical equilibrium. We present how different resonance decays contribute to the spectrum at different energies. The freeze-out temperature decreases with increasing collision energy, while the transverse expansion velocity grows. The decrease of the freeze-out temperature seems to stop at the collision energy of 130 GeV; afterwards the temperature stays constant or grows slightly.

        Collision-system dependence of charge separation relative to the second- and third-order event planes; Implications for the Chiral Magnetic Effect in STAR 20m

        Validation of the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) produced in heavy-ion collisions can provide key insights into anomalous transport in QGP and the connections between chiral symmetry restoration, axial anomaly and gluonic topology. Recently, a charge-sensitive correlator, $\mathrm{R_{\Psi_m}(\Delta S)}$ [1], designed to discern between background- and CME-driven charge separation was used to carry out a detailed set of charge separation measurements, relative to both the $2^{\mathrm{nd}}$- ($\Psi_2$) and $3^{\mathrm{rd}}$-order ($\Psi_3$) event planes for several collision systems (A+A(B)). The measurements indicate nearly flat to convex $\mathrm{R_{\Psi_m}(\Delta S)}$ distributions for the measurements relative to $\Psi_3$ and those relative to $\Psi_2$ for the p(d)+Au systems, consistent with the essentially random $\vec{B}$-field orientations for these measurements. By contrast, the A+A measurements relative to $\Psi_2$ show concave-shaped $\mathrm{R_{\Psi_2}(\Delta S)}$ distributions suggestive of a CME-driven charge separation. Results for U+U collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 193 GeV and p(d)+Au, Cu+Au, Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=$ 200 GeV will be presented and discussed in this poster.

        Comparison of Chemical freeze-out parameters in p+p, p+Pb, Xe+Xe and Pb+Pb collisions at LHC energies 20m

        In this work, we have presented the collision energy, multiplicity and system size dependence of chemical freeze-out parameters such as chemical freeze-out temperature ($T_{\rm ch}$) and strangeness saturation factor ($\gamma_{s}$). These parameters are obtained by analysing the particle ratios at different Large Hadron Collider (LHC) energies using statistical thermal model (THERMUS). Here, we consider the particle ratios obtained recently in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV, p+Pb at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV, Xe+Xe at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.44 TeV and Pb+Pb at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ =5.02 TeV. In addition, we look into the energy dependence of chemical freeze-out parameters by comparing with pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV and Pb+Pb at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ =2.76 TeV results in our study. The particle production from small to large systems has been addressed by considering two ensembles namely, canonical and grand canonical. The results obtained in this study shows a clear multiplicity dependence of $T_{\rm ch}$ and $\gamma_{s}$. The values obtained in high multiplicity pp collisions are similar to the peripheral Pb+Pb collisions. In future, high multiplicity triggered pp events will add more insight about the strangeness chemical equilibrium and to understand the particle production mechanism in smaller collision systems.

        Conserved charge fluctuations at vanishing net-baryon density from Lattice QCD 20m

        Cumulants of net charge fluctuations and their correlations at vanishing values of the charge chemical potentials ($\mu_{B,Q,S}=0$) provide the basis for Taylor expansions of various thermodynamic observables at non-zero values of the chemical potentials. At $\mu_{B,Q,S}=0$ continuum extrapolated results for these cumulants can directly be compared with charge fluctuations and correlations currently being measured by the ALICE collaboration at the LHC.
        We present here continuum extrapolated results for all second order and some of the fourth order cumulants of net baryon-number, strangeness and electric charge fluctuations as well as their cross-correlations obtained by the HotQCD collaboration. As the chemical freeze-out temperature at LHC is found to be close to the pseudo-critical temperature for the QCD chiral transition these cumulants potentially probe remnants of critical behavior in the crossover region. Using results from calculations with smaller than physical quark masses we estimate the singular part contributing to these second and fourth order cumulants. Furthermore, we will show comparisons of our results with hadron resonance gas (HRG) model calculations and argue that particularly in the electric charge sector there is evidence for strong modifications of the resonance spectrum in the transition region.
        We also will use the updated results of HotQCD on higher order cumulants to constrain the radius of convergence of Taylor series as estimator for the location of a possible critical point in the QCD phase diagram.

        Constraining Particle Production in Au+Au Collisions at RHIC Energies Using A Multi Phase Transport Model 20m

        We study the production of pions, kaons, and (anti-) protons in A Multi Phase Transport (AMPT) Model in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=$ 7.7, 27, and 200 GeV. We present the centrality and energy dependence of bulk observables such as invariant yields as a function of transverse momentum $p_T$, particle yields $dN/dy$, average transverse momentum $\langle p_T \rangle$ and various particle ratios, and compare them with experimental data. Both default and string melting (SM) versions of the AMPT model are used with three different sets of initial conditions. We observe that neither the default nor the SM model could consistently describe the centrality dependence of all observables at the above energies with any one set of initial conditions. The energy dependence behavior of the experimental observables for 0--5\% central collisions is in general better described by the default AMPT model using the default HIJING parameters for Lund string fragmentation and 3mb parton scattering cross-section.

        Constraining the initial stages of heavy-ion collisions with high-$p_{\perp}$ theory and data 20m

        Commonly, only low-$p_{\perp}$ sector is used to infer the features of initial stages before QGP thermalization. On the other hand, recently acquired wealth of high-$p_{\perp}$ experimental data paves the way to utilize the high-$p_{\perp}$ particles energy loss in exploring the initial stages. However, the results of such explorations are up to now either inconclusive or questionable. We here concentrate on high-$p_{\perp}$ $R_{AA}$ and $v_2$ observables, and study the effects of four different commonly considered initial stages scenarios, which have the same temperature profile after - but differ in the temperature profiles before - thermalization. For the study, we use our recently developed DREENA framework, which is a fully optimized computational procedure in which our state-of-the-art dynamical energy loss is employed. Contrary to the common expectations, we surprisingly obtain that high-$p_{\perp}$ $v_2$ is insensitive to the initial stages of medium evolution, being unable to discriminate between different scenarios. On the other hand, $R_{AA}$ is notably sensitive to these conditions, strongly preferring later thermalization times and free streaming during the initial stages of QGP formation. Moreover, we also reconsider the validity of widely-used procedure of fitting the energy loss parameters for different initial-stage cases to reproduce the experimentally observed $R_{AA}$. We here find that the reported sensitivity of $v_2$ to different initial-stage scenarios is mainly an artifact of the $R_{AA}$ fitting, with no real physical process to support it. Therefore, such a procedure may lead to erroneous conclusions, masking the underlying nature of jet-medium interactions. Consequently, the simultaneous study of high-$p_{\perp}$ $R_{AA}$ and $v_2$ is necessary for imposing reliable constraints on the initial stages.

        We present our results on genuinely 3+1D simulations of the Glasma in heavy ion collisions. By incorporating nuclei with finite thickness along the beam axis, we naturally break boost invariance and obtain Gaussian-like rapidity profiles of energy densities already at the tree level [1]. The profiles resemble strong coupling results and agree surprisingly well with experimental data of pion multiplicities as obtained at RHIC. The applicability of these simulations is limited by the numerical Cherenkov instability. We construct a new lattice action which allows us to cure this instability along one lattice direction [2]. This paves the way for simulations at higher energies and better resolution.

        D + meson production as a function of charged- particle multiplicity in pp collisions at √s =13 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Charm and beauty are heavy quarks with observed masses of
        1.28 GeV/c 2 and 4.18 GeV/c 2 respectively. They are produced
        in initial hard scattering processes. Due to their small
        formation time (∆t~0.1 fm/c) as compared to the formation
        time of QGP ( ∆t~0.3 fm/c) at the LHC, they experience all the
        stages occuring during the time evolution of the hot and dense
        medium produced in heavy-ion collisions. Therefore, the
        measurement of open charm and beauty production allows
        probing QGP properties and investigating the color charge and
        mass dependence of the parton in-medium energy loss.
        Moreover, due to their large masses (m c , m b >> Λ QCD ) their pp
        production cross-sections are calculable within the domain of
        perturbative QCD constituting an excellent test of pQCD
        calculations.

        charged-particle multiplicity helps to understand the processes

        D+ meson production in pp, p--pb and Pb--Pb collisions at √s= 5 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are effective probes to investigate the properties of the hot and dense strongly-interacting medium created in heavy-ion collisions as they are produced in high-energy hard partonic scattering processes occurring in the early stages of the collision. Due to their long life time, they probe all the stages of the medium evolution interacting with its constituents and losing energy via gluon radiation and elastic collisions. In pp collisions, heavy quarks serve as a fundamental test of perturbative QCD calculations and also provide reference for measurements in p--Pb and Pb--Pb collisions. Pb--Pb collisions give the possibility of studying the properties of strongly-interacting matter at high temperature and density, while p-Pb collisions allow us to disentangle cold nuclear effects (such as kT broadening, nuclear modification of parton distribution functions, parton saturation at small Bjorken-x etc.) and to study the origin of the collective-like effects evidenced in high-multiplicity pp and p--Pb collisions.
        The ALICE apparatus has excellent capabilities for heavy-flavour measurements in all the collision systems. Open heavy-flavour production is measured at mid-rapidity via the hadronic decays of D mesons (D0, D+, D∗+ and Ds+) and Λc+, the semileptonic decays to electrons of charm and beauty hadrons and also semileptonic decays to electrons of Λc+ and Ξc0.

        D-meson production in Pb--Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        The production of charm quarks occurs predominantly in hard scattering processes in the earliest stages of a heavy-ion collision, and due to their relatively long lifetimes they experience the full evolution of the system. In ALICE, charmed mesons ($D^0$,$D^+$,$D^{*+}$ and $D_{s}^{+}$) are reconstructed in their hadronic decay channels, allowing the full kinematic information of the original particle to be retained. Their nuclear modification factor ($R_{\rm AA}$) evaluated as the modification of the D meson production $p_{\rm T}$ spectra in Pb--Pb collisions with respect to the one in proton--proton collisions gives insight into the energy loss mechanisms charm quark undergoes as it traverses the strongly interacting medium (QGP). In particular comparisons with lighter hadrons give insight into the possible mass and flavour dependence of the in-medium energy loss. Comparative studies between particle species in Pb--Pb and pp collision systems allow us to test possible differences in the production of different charge states and resonances such as $D^{*+}$.

        Furthermore, charmed hadrons with strangeness content, such as $D_{s}^{+}$, are of particular interest as they allow us to probe the effect of the hot and dense medium on charm hadronisation such as the possible recombination of charm and strange quarks in the strangeness-rich QGP. In this case one expects a difference in the $R_{\rm AA}$ of strange and non-strange D mesons.

        In this contribution will be presented the latest ALICE results for the production of strange and non-strange D mesons in Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV, using the data provided by the 2018 run of the LHC. The nuclear modification factor of strange and non-strange D-mesons will be shown, along with the relative production ratios of the strange and non-strange D-meson species. Of particular interest is the extremely low $p_{\rm T}$ reach ALICE is able to achieve on the measurement of the production of $D^0$ mesons in Pb--Pb collisions that allows to evaluate the $D^0$ $R_{\rm AA}$ down to $\sim$ 0 $p_{\rm T}$ and opens the possibility to determine the total $D^0$ production cross-section in heavy-ion collisions.

        Finally, comparisons of the measurements with theoretical model calculations and lighter-flavour particles will be discussed.

        D0-meson elliptic flow using event-shape-engineering technique in Au+Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV from STAR 20m

        Because of their early production, charm quarks are sensitive to the entire evolution of the system created in ultra-relativistic collisions of heavy ions. In particular, charm quark elliptic flow (v2) is a valuable tool for study of charm transport in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Recent results from the STAR experiment show that in 10-40% central Au+Au collisions at the top RHIC energy the D0-meson v2 follows the Number-of-Constituent-Quark(NCQ) scaling similarly as light-flavor hadrons. To gain more insight into the charm quark dynamics it is of interest to study their flow in events with different initial conditions.

        In this poster, we will present D0-meson v2 measurement with the event-shape-engineering technique applied in Au+Au collisions at sNN = 200 GeV by the STAR experiment. The measurement utilizes the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker and the combined datasets recorded during RHIC 2014 + 2016 runs. D0 v2 will be reported as a function of the reduced flow vector q2 and compared to that of light-flavor and strange hadrons. Furthermore, we utilize the Forward Meson Spectrometer (FMS) detector covering the range of 2.5 < η < 4. The large η-gap helps to reduce the non-flow contribution in the D0 v2 measurement. These results will be compared to model calculations and physics implications on the charm quark diffusion coefficient will be discussed.

        Data-driven constraints on the drag and diffusion of light partons 20m

        Interactions between hard partons and the quark-gluon plasma range from frequent soft collisions to rare large angle scatterings. The larger number of soft interactions makes possible an effective stochastic description of parton-plasma interactions in terms of drag and diffusion transport coefficients [1]. We build on the methodical division between soft and hard parton-plasma interactions derived in Ref. [2] and present a first Monte-Carlo implementation of this reformulated parton energy loss model. We discuss the model's dependence on the scale separating soft and hard interactions, both for small and large values of the strong coupling constant.

        Using the model's systematic separation between the transport (soft) sector of the parton energy loss and harder vacuum-like interactions, we perform a Bayesian analysis to calibrate the model to jet measurements and extract the transport properties of light partons propagating in a strongly-coupled quark-gluon plasma. We constrain the drag and diffusion coefficients alongside the strong coupling constant and the scale separating soft and hard parton-plasma interactions, and discuss the physical interpretation of the phenomenologically-constrained soft/hard scale.

        Development and characterization of high-density interconnection technologies for the CBM Silicon Tracking System at FAIR 20m

        The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at the future Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany, aims to explore the quantum chromodynamics phase diagram for highest baryon densities.
        One of the core detectors of CBM is the Silicon Tracking System (STS). The STS is the key detector for measuring the momentum and tracks of up to 1000 charged particles produced in Au+Au collisions which happen at interaction rates up to 10 MHz on a fixed target. Due to the required momentum resolution for the STS of Δp/p ~ 1.5%, the material budget of STS has to be minimized as much as possible. In order to keep the read-out electronics, cooling and mechanical infrastructure out of the detector acceptance, the sensors are connected to the self-triggering front-end electronics by means of low-mass flexible microcables with a length up to 50 cm. In combination with the large double-sided sensors with a size up to 124 mm x 62 mm, the detector module becomes a highly complex structure, which in turn leads to a challenging module assembly procedure.
        To mitigate risk, two high-density interconnection technologies have been developed for the STS modules, based on ultra-thin aluminium and copper mircocables, respectively. Capacitance simulations and measurements of the microcables and full detector material budget simulations have been performed. Next to the individual steps involved in the respective interconnection technologies, the electrical performance of the assembled modules, including a thorough noise analysis, will be presented.

        Development of a Muon Chamber System at the CBM Experiment at FAIR 20m

        The Compressed baryonic matter (CBM) experiment at the future acceleratorFacility for anti-proton and ion research (FAIR) in GSI Germany aims to explore the QCD phase diagram in the very high net-baryon density. The Muon Chamber (MuCh) system would facilitate detection of probes like charmonium (J/ψ) and low mass vector mesons (LMVM) via di-leptonic decay channel. The CBM experimental conditions require detectors to be high radiation tolerant and with high rate capability. Under these circumstances, the MuCh system will be based on segmented absorbers with detectors placed in between them. The first two stations of MuCh system will be based on gas electron multiplier (GEM) technology where the particle ratereachesup to about 1 MHz/cm2for minimum bias Au-Au collisions at SIS100 energy. On the other hand, the 3rdand 4thstationswill be resistive plate chamber (RPC) based where particle ratereduces to 4 KH/cm2. In the present presentation, we will discuss detail design parameters of the MuCh system. Prototype test results of two different subsystems (GEM and RPC) using self-triggered electronics custom-built for CBM will also be presented.

        Development of large area silicon pixel detector assembly for heavy-ion collision experiments 20m

        Based on the state-of-the-art Monolithic Active Pixel Sensor (MAPS) technology, the silicon pixel detector has been successfully applied in the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) for the first time since early 2014. The HFT allows precise measurements of open heavy flavor hadron production in heavy-ion collisions over a wide range of transverse momentum at RHIC. After the 2$^{\rm{nd}}$ long shutdown (LS2) during 2019 to 2020, the ALICE detector will be upgraded to enable the read-out of all interactions and accumulate more than 10 nb$^{-1}$ of Pb+Pb collisions in Run 3 (2021 - 2023) and Run 4 (2026 - 2029). One of the key components of the ALICE LS2 upgrade programme is that a new low material and high-resolution silicon pixel detector for the Inner Tracking System (ITS) based on the next generation of MAPS technology will be built, which has been adopted by sPHENIX and NICA/MPD experiments for faster vertex detector development in coming years.
        The Chinese group has constructed a complete assembly line and built an experienced team on large area pixel chip integration and testing at CCNU. As one of five ALICE ITS Outer Barrel (OB) Hybrid Integrated Circuit (HIC) construction sites, CCNU has completed the OB HIC construction with a yield of about 80\%, approximately 20\% of the ITS OB HIC modules (equal share planned over 5 sites). The positioning accuracies of chip alignment and wire-bonding are well controlled within 5 $\mu$s ($@3\sigma$). Development of the MAPS-based pixel detector for the HIC experiments at CCNU is introduced in this poster, and the advanced techniques involved in the detector assembly and test are described. We will also report the plan in China on the Inner Tracker (IT) construction for the NICA/MPD experiment, and the MAPS-based IT detector will enable MPD to measure charm production at NICA energies and benefit clean measurement of multi-strange hadron spectra.

        Dielectron Production in Au+Au Collisions at $\sqrt{s_\textrm{NN}}=$ 27 GeV with the STAR Experiment 20m

        Dielectron production is suggested as an excellent probe of the hot, dense and strongly interacting medium (QGP) created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions due to their minimal interactions with the medium and the final state hadrons. Dielectrons can be produced at different evolution stages of the collision system. Different invariant mass ranges are sensitive to different physics processes. In the low mass region ($M_{ee}$<$M_{\phi}$), dielectron production is sensitive to the in-medium modifications of vector mesons which could provide an access to the chiral symmetry restoration. In the intermediate mass region ($M_{\phi}$<$M_{ee}$<$M_{J/\psi}$), the dielectron production from the medium thermal radiation is sensitive to the medium temperature, thus can serve as a thermometer of the medium. However, the dominant source in this mass region, semi-leptonic decays of open heavy flavor hadrons, makes the extraction of the thermal radiation contribution very challenging.

        In this poster, we will present the results from the $1.5$ B minimum-bias events taken in 2018 Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\text{NN}}}=$ 27 GeV. This data sample is more than 10 times larger than that from the STAR Beam Energy Scan phase I program and allows a much more precise measurement of the in-medium modification of $\rho$ mesons. The much lower open charm production rate at this energy compared to RHIC top energies greatly reduces their contributions to the dielectron spectrum at the intermediate mass region, providing a better opportunity to extract the medium temperature. The results will be compared to the measurements from other collision energies and the theoretical model calculations.

        Dielectron production in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm {NN}}}=54$ GeV at STAR 20m

        Dielectrons are excellent probes of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. Because they can be produced at all stages of the collision system evolution and do not interact with the medium strongly, dielectrons carry the information from the initial stage to the final stage. In the low mass region (LMR, $\rm M_{ee} < M_{\phi}$), the mass spectra of vector mesons will be modified by the hot and dense medium which is related to the chiral symmetry restoration in the medium. In the intermediate mass region (IMR, $\rm M_{\phi} < \rm M_{ee} < \rm M_{J/\psi}$), QGP thermal radiation can be used as a QGP thermometer. However, it is hard to measure the QGP thermal radiation because of the heavy flavor semi-leptonic decay contributions.

        In this poster, we will present the dielectron production in Au$+$Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm {NN}}}=54$ GeV at STAR. With a 10 times larger data sample than that at 62 GeV from the first phase of the STAR Beam Energy Scan (BES-I) program, in-medium $\rho$ modification can be studied with better precision and compared to different theoretical predictions. With lower heavy flavor semi-leptonic decay contributions compared to those at RHIC top energies, QGP thermal radiation in the IMR will be discussed. Furthermore, physics implications of these measurements will be discussed.

        Differential measurements of global polarization of $\Lambda$ hyperon in Au+Au collision at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 54.4\ GeV\ with STAR 20m

        The medium generated by non-central nuclear-nuclear collision would have a large angular momentum. Due to the spin-orbit coupling, spin directions of particles formed by recombining quarks from the plasma could reflect the spin direction aligned with the angular momentum of the system. Global polarization is expected to lead to the understanding of the physical properties of QGP because it is caused by the vorticity of the system. Global polarization has been measured from 7.7 GeV to 200 GeV via $\Lambda$ hyperon decay. In this poster, various differential studies including different event planes and azimuthal dependences of the global polarization measurements in Au+Au collision at 54.4 GeV will be reported.

We measure charged jets using central tracking detectors in ALICE and correct the results for detector effects using unfolding procedure. Previous two-particle correlation studies from RHIC and the dijet asymmetry studies from LHC indicate that the dijet invariant mass can be sensitive to modifications caused by the QGP medium.

        Discharge propagation in GEM detectors 20m

        Micropattern gaseous detectors (MPGDs) are a group of modern gaseous ionizing detectors consisting of microelectrode structures developed to overcome many of the difficulties of traditional gaseous detectors such as multiwire proportional chambers. The gas electron multiplier (GEM) is one of the most prolific MPGDs currently in use and slated to be used for many future detectors or current detector upgrades. Recent research conducted on discharges in GEM detectors will be presented. Delayed propagating discharges to the readout plane are a potential threat to the stable operation of GEM detectors and can cause permanent damage to the detector. An experimental setup enabling simultaneous electrical and optical measurements is used to provide novel insights regarding the physical mechanism of the delayed discharge, including the microsecond time delay between the primary and secondary discharges. Based on these measurements, indicators of the onset of the delayed propagating discharge are identified by means of the charge transfer to the readout electrode and potential methods to prevent or mitigate the delayed discharge propagation are proposed.

        Dissipation and causality in fluids with polarization 20m

        We examine the relativistic perfect fluid limit,
        defined as the fastest possible local equilibration, in a medium with
        polarizeability, defined as a non-zero local equilibrium partition of
        angular momentum into spin and vorticity.
        We show that the Lagrangian approach is best suited to analyzing this situation, as
        it can be used to efficiently avoid issues such as the breakdown
        of isotropy, the ambiguity of the energy-momentum tensor definition and
        the lack of closure of conservation equations.
        We obtain the Lagrangian and the equations of motion of an ideal
        relativistic fluid with polarization, linearize them, and
        show that to restore
        causality a relaxation term linking vorticity and polarization,
        analogous to the Israel-Stewart term linking viscous forces and
        gradients,is required.
        We close with an discussion of the phenomenological applicability
        of the hydrodynamics with polarization developed here, focusing on the recent
        finding of Lambda polarization and resonance spin alignement, and discussing
        weather observables sensitive to early-time polarization exist.

        DREENA framework as a multipurpose tool for QGP tomography 20m

        DREENA framework is based on our dynamical energy loss formalism, which takes into account finite size, finite temperature QCD medium consisting of dynamical (moving) partons. Both radiative and collisional energy losses are calculated under the same theoretical framework in the dynamical energy loss formalism, which is applicable to both light and heavy flavor observables. We generalized the formalism to the case of finite magnetic mass, running coupling, and towards removing widely used soft-gluon approximation. Importantly, DREENA provides a natural framework where temperature profile from any medium evolution can be straightforwardly implemented. We exploit this by implementing different state-of-the-art medium evolutions (both event-by-event hydrodynamics and kinetic transport theory) within DREENA framework. DREENA does not use free parameters, i.e. its only input is the temperature profile that comes directly from various hydrodynamic and kinetic theory models. This opens possibility to use DREENA on both light and heavy flavor to test and differentiate between different available QGP evolution models, including both large and smaller systems, making DREENA a multipurpose QGP tomography tool. Our results on these tests will be presented, which enables us to gain a better understanding of the bulk QGP medium created at RHIC and LHC. As a highlight, contrary to the existing models, which for full hydro evolution models lead to $v_2$ puzzle, with DREENA we surprisingly obtain a very good joint agreement between $R_{AA}$ and $v_2$ data. This well known puzzle therefore appears to be a consequence of a simplified energy loss commonly used by other models once a proper description of parton-medium interactions is used, $v_2$ puzzle is abolished. While a widely accepted paradigm is that proper medium evolution description dominates in explaining high $p_{\perp}$ data, this result strongly suggests that proper description of parton-medium interactions is much more important.

        Dynamical initialization at RHIC-BES energies 20m

        The quark gluon plasma (QGP) produced in high-energy nuclear collisions is known to behave like a perfect fluid. In hydrodynamic simulations at RHIC and the LHC energies, space-time evolution of the QGP is usually described in expanding coordinates. On the other hand, in SPS and RHIC-BES energies, Cartesian coordinates are used for effective description of hydrodynamic expansion. However, the difference of the coordinates makes it difficult to describe the reactions in broad range of collision energy in a unified manner.
        In this study, we propose to use the Milne coordinates even at lower collision energies by introducing a dynamic initialization model [1] towards unified description of the reactions at various collision energies. We first generate the initially produced particles by using an event generator, JAM [2]. Instead of putting initial conditions at fixed (proper-)time, fluids are gradually created during the colliding nuclei overlap with each other: We put energy, momentum, and baryon number of the particles into fluids through source terms in hydrodynamic equations at which these are produced. By solving hydrodynamic equations in one-dimensionally expanding coordinates, we describe space-time evolution of thermodynamic variables at RHIC-BES energies. By employing the first-order phase transition model as an equation of state, we describe the trajectories of the system in the energy density-baryon density plane and show the maximum baryon density gradually decreases with increasing collision energy.

        Early-Stage Shear Viscosity far from Equilibrium via Holography 20m

        We study the far-from equilibrium shear viscosity as present in the early stage of a heavy-ion collision. Our investigation is based on applying the AdS/CFT correspondence to a time-dependent Vaidya spacetime. A generalization of the entropy density to the non-equilibrium regime is necessary for a consistent description. Throughout the evolution, we observe significant deviations in the shear viscosity over entropy density ratio, $\eta/s$, from the holographic bound in equilibrium, i.e. $1/4\pi$. This value is obtained asymptotically.

        Effect of longitudinal asymmetry on pseudorapidity distributions in Pb-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        In a collision of two identical heavy-ions, the participant zone formed from the overlapping region of the two colliding nuclei contains unequal number of nucleons from each nucleus due to fluctuations. Consequently, the participant zone has a non-zero momentum in the centre of mass frame of the colliding nuclei, causing a longitudinal asymmetry. Using data in Pb-Pb collisions at centre of mass energy 2.76 TeV, the ALICE experiment had demonstrated that the longitudinal asymmetry manifests itself in the measured pseudorapidity distributions. In the present work, the results on the pseudorapidity distributions and the estimated shift in the rapidity will be presented using data from Pb-Pb collisions at centre of mass energy 5.02 TeV. The shift in rapidity of the participant zone due to the longitudinal asymmetry is estimated using the unequal energy deposited in the forward zero- degree calorimeters on either side of the interaction vertex. The results show the relation between the shift in rapidity and the centre of mass energy. In addition, results will be presented for pseudorapidity distributions for charged particles in different transverse momentum intervals.

It will help us to understand the effect of electromagnetic interaction with strongly interacting QCD plasma. Recently, it has been shown that a strong magnetic field is created during heavy ion collisions. Thus it is interesting to study the effect of this magnetic field on the transport and thermodynamical properties of matter created in these heavy ion collisions. In this poster, we will show the variation of electrical conductivity of an isotropic quark gluon plasma with respect to temperature. Further we will demonstrate the effect of magnetic field on electrical conductivity and discuss its physical importance.

        Effect of simulating parity-odd observables in high energy heavy ion collisions on balance functions of charged particles and elliptic flow of pions 20m

        At the early stage of heavy ion collisions, non-trivial topologies of the gauge fields can be created resulting in an imbalance of axial charge density and eventually separation of electric charges along the direction of the magnetic field produced in such collisions. This process is called the chiral magnetic effect (CME). In this work we implement such a charge separation at the partonic level in AMPT for Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 GeV to study its consequence on experimental observables. We present the effects on the pion elliptic flow ($v_2$) and the charged particle balance function (BF) for varying strengths of initial charge separation. We find that the shape of the balance function is sensitive to the increasing charge separation. $v_2$ of pion shows a strong decreasing trend at higher transverse momenta ($p_T$) with increasing charge separation. Charge balance functions show a peak at $\Delta\phi \sim 180 $ with charge separation implemented in the partonic level as expected for the parity violation. We have also calculated parity observable $\gamma$ in the form of BF's moments. $\gamma$ shows a decreasing trend with charge separation. It has a negative value for charge separation produced by flipping more than 30 $\%$ of quarks in the parton level. We also notice that $<\gamma>$ for the same charge correlation and the opposite charge correlation shows negative and positive values, respectively.

        Effects of hydrodynamic fluctuations on azimuthal flow in ultra-central heavy-ion collisions 20m

        It is reported recently that an intriguing behavior of the anisotropic flow coefficients in ultra-central Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC. Elliptic flow in ultra-central collisions is driven mainly by fluctuations rather than collision geometry. Therefore, magnitudes of elliptic flow and triangular flow coefficients are almost identical. Some hydrodynamic models, which have been successful in describing non-central data, fail to reproduce elliptic flow and triangular flow coefficients simultaneously in ultra-central collisions. We try to resolve the issue by investigating effects of hydrodynamic fluctuations on anisotropic flow coefficients in ultra-central collisions.
        We employ an integrated dynamical model [1] to describe the dynamics of heavy-ion collisions at the LHC energy. Here, we introduce hydrodynamic fluctuations into relativistic hydrodynamic model through the fluctuation-dissipation theorem [2]. Hydrodynamic fluctuations are thermal fluctuations during hydrodynamic evolution. Since anisotropic flow is driven mainly by fluctuations in ultra-central collisions, hydrodynamic fluctuations play an important role in understanding their coefficients. The gap between magnitudes of elliptic flow and triangular flow is expected to decrease because hydrodynamic fluctuations enhance higher order flow coefficients more effectively. Setting impact parameter to be vanished to remove geometric effects, we first compare the results with hydrodynamic fluctuations and without them. Next, we analyze the effect of hydrodynamic fluctuations on azimuthal flow in ultra-central collisions. We also analyze the correlation between initial transverse eccentricity $\varepsilon_n$ and final anisotropic flow $v_n$ in ultra-central collisions.

        Measurements of electroweak bosons produced in Pb+Pb collisions as well as photon and jet production in p+Pb collisions are of great interest to understanding initial state effects. These channels are sensitive to a broad set of physics effects such as high-precision test of the binary collision scaling expected in Pb+Pb, the modification of the parton densities in nuclei, the onset of non-linear QCD or saturation effects at low-$x$, and the energy loss of partons in the nucleus before the hard scattering.

        This poster presents the ATLAS final results on W and Z boson production in lead-lead collisions and photon and dijet production in $p$+Pb collision. W and Z boson yields are reported in 5.02 TeV Pb+Pb data, and the corresponding high-statistics $pp$ data at the same collision energy are used as a baseline. The resulting W and Z nuclear modification factors are shown differentially in pT, rapidity and centrality. Prompt photon yields are reported in 8.16 TeV $p$+Pb data, and an extrapolated $pp$ reference from 8 TeV collision data is used as a baseline. The measured photon nuclear modification factors and forward/backward ratios in $p$+Pb are presented differentially in pT and pseudorapidity. Forward-forward and forward-central di-jet production are reported in 5.02 TeV $p$+Pb, and $pp$ data at the same collision energy are used as a baseline. The measured azimuthal angular correlations and conditional yields are presented.

        Elliptic flow of electrons from heavy-flavor decays in 54.4 and 27 GeV Au+Au collisions from the STAR experiment at RHIC 20m

        Measurements of heavy-flavor hadron production and elliptic flow ($v_{2}$) provide unique and indispensable information for understanding the properties of the QGP. Recent STAR measurements indicate that in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=$ 200 GeV $D^{0}$ mesons develop large $v_{2}$ similarly as light-favor hadrons, implying that charm quarks interact strongly with the thermalized medium at the top RHIC energy. Interestingly, at lower collision energies the electrons from heavy-flavor decays seem to exhibit much lower $v_{2}$, unlike the light-flavor hadrons. However, the precision of the previous results from STAR at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 62.4 and 39 GeV did not allow for firm conclusions.

        Thanks to the large data samples recorded by STAR in 2017 and 2018, we are now able to perform more precise measurements of the elliptic flow of electrons from heavy-flavor decays in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}= 54.4$ and $27$ GeV, respectively. The data sample size for each energy is more than 10 times higher than that of $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}= 62.4$ GeV taken in 2010. In this poster, we will present these new results from the STAR experiment on the $v_{2}$ of electrons from heavy-flavor decays, at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 54.4 and 27 GeV, as a function of collision centrality and electron transverse momentum. We will also discuss physics implications of these results by comparing to theoretical model calculations.

        Elliptic flow of electrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = $ 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Charm and beauty quarks (heavy flavours) are produced in hard scattering processes in the early stages of heavy-ion collisions, and propagate through the hot and dense QCD matter (QGP) produced as a consequence of the collision. Therefore, they are sensitive probes to characterize the QGP properties.
        The measurement of the elliptic flow (${v_{2}}$) of open heavy-flavour particles at low ${p_{T}}$ can give insight into the participation of the heavy quarks in the collective expansion of the system and their thermalization in the medium. While at high ${p_{T}}$, it allows us to investigate the path-length dependence of parton energy loss.

        Energy calibration and signal waveform analysis of the CBM Projectile Spectator Detector 20m

        Forward hadron lead/scintillator sampling calorimeter (Projectile Spectator Detector, PSD) consisting of 44 longitudinally segmented modules is developed and already constructed for the future Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at FAIR. The original approaches in the energy calibration with cosmic muons and in the signal analysis are proposed. The longitudinal segmentation of individual modules allows for the reconstruction of the cosmic muon tracks in the PSD. It makes possible to estimate the muon pass length in each longitudinal section with the subsequent correction of energy depositions in the scintillators. The developed method takes into account more accurately the muon energy deposition and improves the precision of the energy calibration.
        The short (about 40 nsec) PSD analog signals from photodetectors in each longitudinal section will be digitized by 125 MS/s sampling ADCs. To improve the precision of the PSD energy calibration, the procedure of signal waveform fitting based on the Prony least squares method was developed. This method represents the waveform as a linear combination of exponential functions and allows the measurement of signal amplitude with high accuracy. The fit of the signals with a predefined function permits to discriminate the small muon signals from the electronic noises of comparable amplitudes. The speed of the applied fitting procedure is a few orders faster than the standard iteration methods. It allows the signal analysis on the fly. The developed method makes also possible the selection of pileup signals at a high counting rate.

        Strangeness enhancement in central heavy-ion collisions (A+A) relative to proton-proton interactions (pp) has long been a well-recognized signature for QCD deconfinement or the formation of Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). The energy scan program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in BNL or at CERNs' Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) have presented evidence that are typical of the enhanced strangeness production via their measurements of kaon to pion ratios which exhibit a non-monotonic energy dependence. Similar indication was also observed in the baryon sector based on the measurements of anti-lambda to anti-proton ratio as a function of beam energy. Later it was thought to be a cleaner probe because their quark compositions have only anti-quarks, which are produced in the reaction and not transported. More-over their high mass resonance contributions are less. However, the final yields of both anti-lambda and anti-proton are sensitive to the baryon-antibaryon (B$\bar{B}$) annihilation in hadronic rescatterings phase. In this work, we present an investigation of the beam energy dependence of $\bar\Lambda$ over $\bar{p}$ ratio within a hadronic transport model, UrQMD and observe that the final state yields of $\bar\Lambda$ and $\bar{p}$ are strongly influenced by B$\bar{B}$ annihilation channel and has a significant impact of on the $\bar\Lambda$ to $\bar{p}$ ratio. In fact, the trend of $\bar\Lambda$ to $\bar{p}$ ratio enhancement in data can be qualitatively described within the UrQMD model because the spectral shapes of $\bar\Lambda$ and $\bar{p}$ are modified differently due to different annihilation cross sections of these two species. This suggests that the observed features of beam energy dependence of $\bar\Lambda$ to $\bar{p}$ ratio enhancement may not relate to the strangeness enhancement unambiguously.

        Equation of State for BES with EPOS model 20m

        Studies of collisions of highly accelerated ions are the key to understand the creation of quark matter. Experimental physicists put considerable effort in collecting information characterizing the various processes occurring during such collisions. In order to describe such scenarios, complex models have been constructed, one of them being the EPOS approach. It applies Parton-based Gribov-Regge theory as an initial condition, introduces the core-corona approach, hydrodynamical evolution and hadronic cascades as well. The model is used by an experimental physicist at the LHC or in cosmic ray physics. However, the proper theoretical description of the collisions occurring in the region of higher baryon densities (i. e. studied in the frame of Beam Energy Scan program) requires the introduction of the first order phase transition and possible Critical Point (CP).

        The new Equation of State (EoS) proposed by BEST collaboration [1] is introduced in the model. It contains all corssover, first and second order (CP) transitions of the matter. Furthermore, the location of the CP can be changed. Studies of the impact of the new EoS on final observables will be discussed and compared with the published experimental data.

        Event activity dependence of $\Upsilon$ production in p+p collisions at the STAR experiment 20m

        An interesting strong dependence on charged-particle multiplicity ($n_{ch}$) of $J/\psi$ and $\Upsilon$ production at the LHC and $J/\psi$ at RHIC has been observed. These measurements provide basic information about particle production mechanisms, especially on an interplay between hard and soft processes (multiple parton interactions, string percolations, color reconnection). In order to better understand this behavior a study of $\Upsilon$ production as a function of $n_{ch}$ for different $p_{T}$ ranges and collision energies has to be performed also at RHIC. Furthermore, by measuring the yield ratios between the excited to ground $\Upsilon$ states, $\Upsilon(nS)/\Upsilon(1S)$, as a function of $n_{ch}$, the $\Upsilon(nS)$-hadron interactions can be studied.

        This poster will present STAR results on the self-normalized inclusive $\Upsilon$ production yield ($\Upsilon/\left\langle \Upsilon \right\rangle$) measured as a function of self-normalized $n_{ch}$ in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}=500$ GeV. They will be compared to results from other experiments and model calculations. The measured dependence of $\Upsilon(nS)/\Upsilon(1S)$ ratios on $n_{ch}$ will also be presented. Finally, prospects of future measurements at STAR will be discussed.

        Event activity, direct photons and photon/hadron ratios in asymmetric collisions 20m

        Collision centrality for large heavy ion systems is well defined
        both theoretically and experimentally, but the same is not necessarily
        true when very asymmetric systems, like p/d+A, collide. In light of
        some surprising result on the centrality dependence of high transverse
        momentum observables in p/d+A collisions at RHIC and LHC,
        the very concept of the geometrically inspired centrality gave way to
        "event activity". Convincing experimental tests of the various
        phenomenological models are so far missing. After a critical review of the
        relevant results from SPS, RHIC and LHC we will discuss whether and how
        the measurement of the ``centrality'' dependence of high and low
        transverse momentum direct photons (pQCD and "thermal") in p/d+A
        collisions, along with the photon/hadron ratios, can break the impass.
        We will also explore whether there are any lessons to be learned with
        respect to the possible formation of QGP droplets in small systems,
        and extreme event classes in p+p and A+A collisions.

        Event anisotropy $v_{2}$ in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 27 and 54.4 GeV with STAR 20m

        Elliptic flow is one of the most important observables in the relativistic heavy ion collisions. It can provide us opportunities to study the early evolution of the expanding system. In this poster, we will present elliptic flow of identified particles ($\pi^{\pm}$, $K^{\pm}$, $p$($\bar{p}$), $K_{S}^{0}$, $\Lambda$($\bar{\Lambda}$), $\phi$, $\Xi^{-}$($\bar{\Xi}^{+}$), $\Omega^{-}$($\bar{\Omega}^{+}$)) at midrapidity ($\eta <$ 1) as a function of transverse momentum for three centrality classes in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 27 and 54.4 GeV. The systematic study of $\phi$ mesons and multistrange hadrons ($\Xi^{-}$($\bar{\Xi}^{+}$), $\Omega^{-}$($\bar{\Omega}^{+}$)) will be mainly discussed. These particles have small hadronic re-scattering cross sections and supposed to be sensitive to partonic phase. It is argued that the additional radial flow gained in the hadronic phase modifies the $v_{2}(p_{T})$ shape. Due to the different sensitivity to hadronic interactions of protons and $\phi$ mesons, the mass ordering of $v_{2}$ could be broken between protons and $\phi$ mesons in the low $p_{T}$ range ($p_{T} < $1.5 GeV/c) . The energy dependence of mass ordering between proton and $\phi$ meson $v_{2}$ in the low $p_{T}$ region will be discussed. These results provide us an opportunity to study hadronic contributions on $v_{2}$ measurements as a function of collision energy.

        Event shape and multiplicity dependence of $\rm{K}^{*\pm}$(892) and $\phi$(1020) production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=5.02$ TeV with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        The study of hadronic resonances such as $\rm{K}^{*}$ and $\phi$ provides a unique tool to investigate the interplay of re-scattering and regeneration effects in the hadronic phase of heavy-ion collisions. As the $\rm{K}^{*}$ has a lifetime comparable to the lifetime of the hadronic phase, one would expect to observe the effects of re-scattering and regeneration processes in the measured $\rm{K}^{*}$ production yield. In contrast, the $\phi$ meson has a longer lifetime compared to other resonances. Thus, it is expected that its yields will not be affected by regeneration and re-scattering. So far, most of the measurements of hadronic resonances in pp collisions have been used as baselines for heavy-ion collisions. However, recent indications of the possible formation of QGP droplets and the presence of a hadronic phase in small systems makes the study of hadronic resonance production in small systems more important. Event shape observables like transverse spherocity, along with charged-particle multiplicity, can serve as an important tool to separate isotropic and jetty events, which can help in understanding the recently observed phenomena in small systems in a more differential manner.

        We report measurements of $\rm{K}^{*\pm}$ and $\phi$ meson production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=5.02$ TeV as a function of charged particle multiplicity and transverse spherocity, reconstructed in their hadronic decay channels of $\rm{K}_{\rm S}^{0}\pi^{\pm}$ and $\rm{K}^{+}\rm{K}^{-}$, respectively. These results include the transverse momentum, $p_{\rm T}$, distributions, integrated yield and mean-$p_{\rm T}$ of $\rm{K}^{*\pm}$ and $\phi$ in different spherocity and multiplicity classes. The results will be compared to pQCD inspired models such as PYTHIA and EPOS-LHC.

        Event shape and multiplicity dependence of identified particle production and freeze-out scenario in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV using PYTHIA8 15m

        Recent observations of Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP)-like conditions in high-multiplicity pp collisions from ALICE experiment at the LHC warrants an introspection whether to use pp collisions as a baseline measurement to characterize heavy-ion collisions for possible formation of QGP droplets. A double differential study of the identified particle production and freeze-out scenario of the produced system as a function of charged-particle multiplicity and transverse spherocity in pp collisions would shed light into the underlying event dynamics. The light flavored particle production would help to understand the bulk of the system while the heavy flavored hadrons would retain the entire interaction history in QGP. We report a double differential study of both light and heavy-flavored hadron production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV as a function of charged-particle multiplicity and transverse spherocity using PYTHIA8 event generator. We also report the possible chemical freeze-out and kinetic freeze-out parameters using Thermal model, Boltzmann-Gibbs blast wave model and Tsallis non-extensive statistics. We observe that, while studying the QGP-like conditions in small systems, one should separate the isotropic events from the spherocity-integrated events, as the production dynamics are different. The present study, while exploring the particle production mechanism in different class of high-multiplicity pp events, paves a way for making proper experimental investigations.

        Event-by-Event measurement of charge separation in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV in ALICE 20m

        The interplay between the magnetic and electric field in heavy-ion collisions at high energy results in the charge separation, the phenomenon is known as Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME). Event-by-event charge separation measurements in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV will be presented. The sum of positive charge fraction on left side and negative charge fraction on right side of the dumbbell on the azimuthal plane is calculated for each event. This sum is then maximized in each event by sliding the dumbbell of size $60^{\circ}$ in steps of one degree over the whole azimuthal plane. We further divide maxima into 10 bins to get CME type enriched sample for each centrality. The charge dependent three-particle gamma correlators, calculated using q-cumulant method, will be presented for different collision centralities as well as for different categories of charge separation. We obtained background estimation using two methods, which are: i) reshuffling the charges of particles in an event and ii) randomising the azimuthal angles of particles in an event. Also, the results will be compared with Pb-Pb collisions at 2.76 TeV using same method.

        Evolution of jet shapes in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=200$ GeV with the STAR experiment at RHIC 20m

        In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, a strongly interacting medium known as the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) is produced. Quarks and gluons from incoming nuclei collide to produce partons at high momenta early in the collisions. By fragmenting into collimated sprays of hadrons, these partons form `jets'. The resulting jets, which in vacuum are well understood within the framework of perturbative QCD, are attenuated by medium interactions, a process known as jet quenching. The jet shape variable, $\rho(\Delta r)$, reveals the radial profile of transverse momentum distribution inside the jet. By measuring the modifications of the jet shape, properties of the QGP at different length scales can be studied.

        In this poster, the differential jet shape for full (charged + neutral) jets in mid-peripheral Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=200$ GeV with the STAR experiment at RHIC will be presented and compared to a baseline p+p measurement. As the first measurement of its kind at RHIC energies, this work will extend the kinematic range offered at the LHC to lower $\it{p}_{T}$ and demonstrate whether there is a modification and a broadening of the jet profile at RHIC energies. The jet shape measurement is extended to include an event plane (defined by the beam direction and the vector of the impact parameter) dependence to study the path length dependence of medium modifications to the jets and their associated hadrons. To further explore how the substructure of jets are modified in Au+Au relative to p+p collisions, the dependence on centrality and jet size ($R$) will be investigated.

        Evolving Charge Correlations and the Diffusivity of Light Quarks 20m

        We present a full simulation of evolving charge correlations in heavy-ion collisions using a combination of hydrodynamics and a hadronic Boltzmann cascade to model the underlying system evolution. We compute the charge balance functions (CBFs) in both rapidity and azimuthal angle and observe their dependence on several phenomenological parameters in our model. In particular, we observe significant sensitivity in the $K^+K^-$ and $p\bar{p}$ CBFs to the value of the diffusivity of light quarks, suggesting that a comprehensive analysis of heavy-ion observables which includes the CBFs could be sensitive to this previously unmeasured transport coefficient of QCD matter.

        Exploring the QCD phase diagram via collision energy dependence of multi-particle Bose-Einstein correlations in Au+Au collisions with PHENIX 20m

        Exploration of the rich structure of the QCD phase diagram is an important topic in the RHIC beam energy scan program whose ultimate goal is to discover the critical endpoint. Investigation of the space-time structure of hadron emissions at various phase transition points using Bose-Einstein correlation of identical bosons will provide insight on the location of the critical endpoint. PHENIX has performed comprehensive measurements of the Bose-Einstein correlation in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 15, 19, 27, 39, 62.4, and 200 GeV, where we incorporated Levy-type source function to describe the measured correlation functions. We also extended our analysis from two particles to three particle correlations to characterize the nature of the hadron emission source. We put particular focus on one of the parameters in the Levy-type source function, the index of stability $\alpha$, which is related to one of the critical exponents (the so-called correlation exponent $\eta$). We have measured its collision energy and centrality dependence. In addition, we have discovered a product of Levy parameters which has a dimension of length which is linear in $m_T$ whose interpretation is still under debate. The three particle correlations confirmed the findings of the two-particle correlations, and also provided insight on pion production mechanism beyond Core-Halo models. We will present the latest PHENIX results on the multi-particle Bose-Einstein correlation, and discuss its physics interpretation.

        Extracting fluctuation of thermal parameters at freezeout 20m

        The extraction of thermal freezeout parameters from measured hadron yields
        and their higher moments have met with considerable success within the frame-
        work of hadron resonance gas models. The standard assumption in such studies
        is to consider a constant freezeout parameter set which is extracted by chi-square
        fit to data. However, in reality, thermal conditions at freezeout need not be con-
        stant. They can fluctuate event by event as well as in the same event, there
        could be a distribution of temperatures and chemical potentials over freezeout
        spacetime points instead of a constant value. In this study we set up the frame-
        work to study such possible fluctuations in thermal freezeout conditions and
        extract them by comparing the model predictions to mean hadron multiplicities
        and their higher moments. We utilise all available data across beam energies
        and centralities. The extracted thermal parameters and their higher moments
        and the goodness of fits are compared to the standard scenario of constant ther-
        mal parameters. Understanding the nature of fluctuation of freezeout thermal
        parameters has significant implications on the ongoing searches for the QCD
        critical point.

        Extracting jet transport coefficient via single hadron and dihadron productions in high-energy heavy-ion collisions 20m

        We study [1] the suppressions of high transverse momentum single hadron and dihadron productions in high-energy heavy-ion collisions based on the framework of a next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD parton model combined with the higher-twist energy loss formalism [2,3]. Our model can provide a consistent description for the nuclear modification factors of single hadron $R_{AA}$ and dihadron $I_{AA}$ in central and non-central nucleus-nucleus collisions at RHIC and the LHC energies.

        We quantitatively extract the value of jet quenching parameter $\hat{q}$ via a global $\chi^2$ analysis, and obtain the scaled jet quenching parameter ${\hat{q}}/{T^3} = 4.1 \sim 4.4$ at $T = 378$ MeV for 0.2 TeV Au+Au collisions and ${\hat{q}}/{T^3} = 2.6 \sim 3.3$ at $T = 486$ MeV for 2.76 TeV Pb+Pb collisions, which are consistent with the results from JET Collaboration [4]. We also get the ${\hat{q}}/{T^3} = 2.5 $ at $T=516$ MeV for 5.02 TeV Pb+Pb collisions, ${\hat{q}}/{T^3} = 3.5$ at $T= 469$ MeV for 5.44 TeV Xe+Xe collisions only via single hadron productions and provide the predictions for the dihadron $I_{AA}$ of these two collisions. The above numerical analysis shows that ${\hat{q}}/{T^3}$ has some temperature dependence: it decreases as one increases the temperature, which can be understood as decreasing jet-medium interaction strength with increasing temperature.

        Here are some other interesting results that the dihadron $I_{AA}$ are typically larger than single hadron $R_{AA}$ given the same nucleus-nucleus collision conditions and the values of $I_{AA}$ also increase as one increases the trigger hadron $p_T$. These results can be explained by that high $p_T$ single hadrons mainly come from surface bias emission jets, while high $p_T$ dihadrons come from a combination of surfacial and tangential jets as well as punching-through jets [5,6]. And with increasing trigger hadron $p_T$, the contribution from punching-through jets increases [7]. On average in a A + A event, the total energy loss for jets in the surface bias case is larger than in the case with punching-through jets.

        Extracting jet transport parameter $\hat{q}$ from a multiphase transport model} 20m

        Within a multi-phase transport model with string melting scenario, jet transport parameter $\hat{q}$ is calculated in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN} } $= 200 GeV and Pb+Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN} } $= 2.76 TeV. The $\hat{q}$ increases with the increasing of jet energy for both partonic phase and hadronic phase. The energy and path length dependences of $\hat{q}$ in full heavy-ion evolution are consistent with the expectations of jet quenching. The correlation between jet transport parameter $\hat{q}$ and dijet transverse momentum asymmetry $A_{J}$ is mainly investigated, which discloses that a larger $\hat{q}$ corresponds to a larger $A_{J}$. It supports a consistent jet energy loss picture from the two viewpoints of single jet and dijet. It is proposed to measure dijet asymmetry distributions with different jet transport parameter ranges as a new potential method to study jet quenching physics in high energy heavy-ion collisions.

        Factorization breaking in transverse momentum from hydrodynamic fluctuations 20m

        In recent years, factorization breaking of flow coefficients in transverse momentum has been measured by CMS Collaboration [1] to understand the transport properties of QGP. The factorization ratio $r_n$ measured in Pb + Pb collisions at LHC represents the decorrelation of the event plane angle in different transverse momentum regions. When $r_n = 1$, which implies the coincidence of the event-plane angles along transverse momentum direction, $r_n$ can be factorized into the anisotropic flow coefficients $v_n$ in the individual transverse momentum regions. However, $r_n < 1$ means the event-plane angles differ from each other and consequently this factorization is broken. Hydrodynamic fluctuations are expected to break the factorization because they disturb the event plane.

        In this study, we analyze the factorization ratio $r_n$ in the direction of transverse momentum by using an integrated dynamical model [2] that incorporates thermal fluctuations into the relativistic hydrodynamic model. The QGP produced in high-energy heavy-ion collisions expands rapidly, cools down and becomes a hadron gas in a short time period. Thus, the QGP cannot be measured directly. Therefore, the transport properties of QGP are explored through analysis of the hadron momentum distribution measured by the detector. Since the final state hadron observables carry the information on the whole history of the space-time evolution of the system, it is important to construct an integrated dynamical model that describes the whole reaction. Using this integrated dynamic model incorporating hydrodynamic fluctuations, we compare the analysis results of the factorization ratio in the transverse momentum direction with the experimental results and discuss the influence of the hydrodynamic fluctuations on the factorization ratio in the transverse momentum direction.

        First results from hybrid hadronization in small and large systems 20m

        “Hybrid Hadronization” is a new Monte Carlo package to hadronize systems of partons. It smoothly combines quark recombination applicable when distances between partons in phase space are small, and string fragmentation appropriate for dilute parton systems, following the picture outlined by Han et al. [PRC 93, 045207 (2016)]. Hybrid Hadronization integrates with PYTHIA 8 and can be applied to a variety of systems from $e^++e^-$ to A+A collisions. It takes systems of partons and their color flow information, for example from a Monte Carlo parton shower genera-tor, as input. In addition, if for A+A collisions a thermal background me-dium is provided, the package allows to sample thermal partons that con-tribute to hadronization. Hybrid Hadronization is available for use as a standalone code and is also part of the JETSCAPE 2.0 release.
        In this presentation we review the physics concepts underlying Hybrid Hadronization and how users can use the code with parton shower Monte Carlos. We demonstrate how Hybrid Hadronization affects multiplicities, hadron chemistry, fragmentation functions and jet shapes in $e^++e^-$, p+p and A+A collisions when combined with different parton shower Monte Carlos using PYTHIA 6, PYTHIA 8 and JETSCAPE/MATTER. We compare to calculations using pure Lund string fragmentation as well as to data from LEP, RHIC and LHC. In particular we demonstrate observable effects of the recombination of shower partons with thermal partons. As a benchmark we compare to pure PYTHIA 8 string fragmentation and to data.

        First, second, third and fourth flow harmonics of deuterons and protons in Au+Au reactions at 1.23 A GeV 20m

        We explore the directed, elliptic, triangular and quadrangular flow of deuterons in Au+Au reactions at a beam energy of 1.23 AGeV within the UrQMD approach. These investigations are of direct relevance for the HADES experiment at GSI that has recently presented first data on the flow of light clusters in Au+Au collisions at 1.23 AGeV. To address the deuteron flow, UrQMD has been extended to include deuteron formation by coalescence. We find that this ansatz provides a very good description of the measured deuteron flow data, if a hard equation of state is used for the simulation. In addition we show that light cluster formation has a sizable impact on the proton flow and has to be taken into account to obtain reliable results in the forward/backward region. Based on the observed scaling of the flow, which is a natural result of coalescence, we conclude that deuteron production at GSI energies is a final state recombination effect. Finally, we also discuss the scaling relations of the higher order flow components up to $v_4$. We show that $v_3 \sim v_1v_2$ and $v_4 \sim v_2^2$ as function of transverse momentum and that the integrated $v_2^2 \sim v_4$ over the investigated energy range from $E_{lab}$=0.1 AGeV to 40 AGeV.

        Fluctuation dynamics near the QCD critical point 20m

        Near the QCD critical point (CP), critically slow processes can invalidate the conventional (dissipative) hydrodynamic description, which simply integrates out all non-hydrodynamic modes. We explore the critical dynamics near the QCD CP with the novel Hydro+ framework [1] which extends the conventional hydrodynamic description by coupling it to additional explicitly evolving slow modes. Their slow relaxation is controlled by the correlation length in the critical region, which is independent from the density inhomogeneities of the QCD matter that control the evolution of the hydrodynamic quantities. In this presentation we study the evolution of a single critical slow mode on top of a simplified matter background with non-zero net baryon density undergoing Gubser flow [2], as a function of the slow mode's wave number and the correlation length. We also discuss how the non-equilibrium slow mode affects the bulk properties of the matter, such as the pressure and entropy density. We find that over a wide range of wave numbers the non-equilibrium effects of the slow mode are dominatingly driven by the fluid expansion rather than by critical slowing-down. Last but not least we explore the critical fluctuation dynamics in systems of various sizes and at different collision energies. As one of the first studies based on Hydro+, this work provides guidance to future more realistic, fully (3+1)-dimensional simulations aiming at locating the QCD CP.

        Fluctuation-dissipation relation and fluctuation theorem for causal hydrodynamic fluctuations 20m

        Recently physics of thermal fluctuations of hydrodynamic fields, namely the hydrodynamic fluctuations, in high-energy nuclear collisions are actively discussed. In this talk I will discuss new modification terms [1] in fluctuation-dissipation relation (FDR), which determines the power of hydrodynamic noise fields, and also discuss its importance in the point of view the fluctuation theorem [2], which is a relation of the entropy production probability known in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics.

        The effects of hydrodynamic fluctuations on heavy-ion observables such as flow coefficients and longitudinal decorrelation $r_n(\eta_a, \eta_b)$ are recently analyzed in event-by-event simulations by dynamical models [3-6]. Also the thermal fluctuations near the critical point also play an important role in the critical dynamics. In this sense the hydrodynamic fluctuations in dynamical models are becoming more and more important. The FDR used in dynamical models is normally obtained in the global equilibrium. However, in expanding systems such as matter created in the nuclear collisions, the FDR is non-trivial. I obtain new modification terms to the FDR in the second-order causal dissipative hydrodynamics by considering the linear-response in non-static and inhomogeneous backgrounds. I discuss its relation to the steady-state fluctuation theorem. Also, by performing the numerical simulations of non-linear relativistic fluctuating hydrodynamics assuming the Bjorken flow, I investigate the non-linear fluctuation effects to the fluctuation theorem.

        Fluctuations of anisotropic flow in transport 20m

        It is well established that the spatial asymmetries of the overlap region in the initial state of a heavy ion collision, together with their fluctuations, are quite faithfully translated into final-state momentum anisotropies by a fluid-dynamical evolution. We investigate the relationship between initial-state eccentricities and final-state anisotropic flow harmonics for a simplified two-dimensional gas of massless particles. We show how geometrical fluctuations from a Monte Carlo Glauber picture are mapped onto flow fluctuations, in particular the dependence on the mean number of rescatterings per particle in the expanding system.

        Forward-backward centrality fluctuation and its influence on experimental observables in heavy-ion collisions 20m

        In heavy ion collisions, the transverse size or centrality of the QGP is not a boost-invariant concept. Due to forward-backward multiplicity fluctuations, the centrality of the system, defined as $N_{\mathrm{ch}}$ in a given $\eta$ range, also fluctuates in the longitudinal direction. This longitudinal fluctuation leads to decorrelation of centrality along $\eta$, analogous to the decorrelation of harmonic flow $v_n$ along $\eta$. In this work, we quantify the strength of centrality decorrelation using multi-particle cumulants (mean, variance, skewness and kurtosis) using a sub-nucleon Glauber model as well as dynamical event generators HIJING and AMPT. We found the behaviors of multiplicity cumulants in ultra-central collisions (UCC) are extremely sensitive to the particle production implemented in the models, and therefore can be used to quantify the centrality resolution and constrain the particle production mechanism. We further studied the influence of centrality fluctuation and decorrelations on $v_n$ and mean transverse momentum $\langle p_{\mathrm {T}}\rangle$ in each event. We show that the event-by-event probability distribution of these quantities such as $p(v_n)$, $p(v_n, v_m)$, $p(\langle p_{\mathrm {T}}\rangle)$ and $p(v_n,\langle p_{\mathrm {T}}\rangle)$, accessible via mixed-observable multi-particle cumulants, are sensitive to the strength of the fluctuation and longitudinal decorrelations of centrality. We laid out an experimental strategy on how to constrain the centrality dependence of particle production, based on measurements of these mixed-observable cumulants in UCC for systems of different sizes.

        Future opportunities of small system scan at RHIC 20m

        The observation of multi-particle azimuthal correlations in high-energy small-system collisions has led to intense debate on its physical origin between two competing theoretical scenarios: one based on initial-state intrinsic momentum anisotropy (ISM), the other based on final-state collective response to the collision geometry (FSM). To complement the previous scan of asymmetric collision systems ($p$+Au, $d$+Au and He+Au), we propose a scan of small symmetric collision systems at RHIC, such as C+C, O+O, Al+Al and Ar+Ar at $\mbox{$\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$}=0.2$ TeV, to further disentangle contributions from these two scenarios. These symmetric small systems have the advantage of providing access to geometries driven by the average shape of the nuclear overlap, compared to fluctuation-dominant geometries in asymmetric systems. A transport model is employed to investigate the expected geometry response in the FSM scenario. Different trends of elliptic flow with increasing charge particle multiplicity are observed between symmetric and asymmetric systems, while triangular flow appears to show a similar behavior.

        The enhanced pseudo-rapidity coverage of STAR with iTPC, EPD, and forward upgrade, together with sPHENIX's capabilities of state-of-art hard-probe measurments, make RHIC the ideal place for the proposed scan. Furthermore, a comparison of O+O collisions at $\mbox{$\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$}=0.2$ TeV and at $\mbox{$\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$}=2.76-7$ TeV, as proposed at the LHC, provides a unique opportunity to disentangle the collision geometry effects at nucleon level from those arising from subnucleon fluctuations. Such a proposal of O+O collisions at RHIC in year 2020-2021 has been included in STAR Beam Use Request[1]. Uncertainty projections of key measurements will be presented.

        Generalized High Twist Approach to Parton Energy Loss 20m

        The Generalized High Twist approach has been established to investigate the radiative parton energy loss in deeply inelastic scattering off a large nucleus. The parton undergoes multiple medium parton scatterings and medium-induced radiation after scattering with the virtual photon. In the calculation of radiative energy loss, we relax the approximation in High Twist approach that the radiated gluon transverse momentum is much larger than transverse momentum transfer of parton-medium scattering, and do not perform the collinear expansion in the Generalized High Twist approach. In this new approach, the gluon radiation spectrum is expressed in terms of the convolution of hard partonic part and transverse momentum dependent (TMD) quark-gluon correlation function. The TMD quark-gluon correlation can be factorized approximately as a product of initial quark distribution and TMD gluon distribution. The TMD gluon distribution can be used to define the TMD jet transport coefficient. Under static medium and soft radiative gluon approximation, we recover the Gylassy-Levai-Vitev (GLV) approach result in the first order of the opacity expansion. We also compare numerically the difference between our result and that of GLV and High-Twist result.

        GLISSANDO 3: the known software tool with new possibilities 20m

        Fluctuations in physics observables and flow effects in heavy-ion collisions have been topics of particularly interest in recent years as they may provide important signals regarding the formation of quark-gluon plasma, the existence of a critical point and the evolution of the system. Moreover, the fluctuations and correlations measured in the final stage have their sources at least partly in the initial fluctuations and the initial-state geometry provided the initial effects are not largely altered by the intermediate evolution of the system. GLISSANDO is a versatile Monte-Carlo generator for Glauber-like models of the initial stages of ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The current version incorporates the wounded parton model and, within this model, one can study nucleon substructure fluctuation effects. The code also includes the possibility of investigating collisions of light nuclei as 3He and 3H, or the alpha-clustered 7Be,9Be,12C,16O, where the deformation of the intrisic wave function influences the transverse shape of the initial state. The code can provide output in the format containing the event-by-event source location, which may be further used in modeling the intermediate evolution phase with hydrodynamics or transport models.

        The distributions which illustrate the new features implemented in GLISSANDO 3 will be presented. The potential use of the software tool for the sophisticated analysis and the interpretation of data on relativistic heavy-ion collisions will be discussed.

        Gluon emission from heavy quarks in dense nuclear medium 20m

        We study the medium-induced gluon emission process experienced by a hard jet parton propagating through the dense nuclear matter in the framework of deep inelastic scattering off a large nucleus. We work beyond the collinear rescattering expansion and the soft gluon emission limit, and derive a closed formula for the medium-induced single gluon emission spectrum from a heavy or light quark jet interacting with the dense nuclear medium via transverse and longitudinal scatterings. Without performing the collinear rescattering expansion, the medium-induced gluon emission spectrum is controlled by the full distribution of the differential elastic scattering rates between the propagating partons and the medium constituents. We then use two different models, heavy static scattering centers and the effective HTL dynamical medium, to characterize the traversed nuclear matter. If one utilizes heavy static scattering centers and takes the soft gluon emission limit, our result can reduce to the first order in opacity Djordjevic-Gyulassy-Levai-Vitev formula (with zero mass for radiated gluon). If we take the effective HTL spectral functions for the exchanged gluon field correlation, our result with similar approximations can reduce to Djordjevic-Heinz formula for medium-induced gluon emission in dynamical QCD medium (with zero thermal mass for radiated gluon).

        Gluon propagator in two-color dense QCD: Massive Yang-Mills approach at one-loop 20m

        Motivated by the recent lattice result, we study the Landau gauge gluon propagators in dense two-color QCD at quark chemical potential. In order to take into account the non-perturbative effects in the infrared regime, we use the massive Yang-Mills theory which has successfully described the gluon and ghost propagators in the Landau gauge within the one-loop approximation. We couple quarks to this theory and compute the one-loop polarization effects. Dense matter in two-color QCD should possess the diquark condensate which is color-singlet, and hence neither electric nor magnetic screening effects appear at the scale less than the diquark gap. This infrared behavior explains the lattice results which show the insensitivity of screening masses to the quark density.

        Hadronic resonance production in asymmetric collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Hadronic resonances are interesting probes of the hot and dense matter created in heavy-ion collisions. Due to their short lifetimes, resonances
        are useful tools to understand the particle production mechanisms and the properties of the hadronic phase. Resonance yields are expected to be modified due to the interaction of their decay daughters within the hadronic medium via the re-scattering and re-generation processes.
        The study of resonance production in p--Pb collisions fills the gap between pp and heavy-ion (Pb--Pb, Xe--Xe) collisions and also helps us
        to understand the initial state effects due to cold nuclear matter. In asymmetric collisions, the produced particle yields are different at the forward and backward rapidities. The rapidity asymmetry (${Y}_\mathrm{Asym}$) studies are sensitive to nuclear modification effects, like shadowing, the Cronin enhancement, multiple scattering and energy loss.
        We will report on the measurement of the production of K$^{*0}$ and $\phi$ resonances in p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{\it{s}_{NN }}$ = 8.16 TeV. Results include transverse momentum spectra, mean transverse momenta, yields and particle ratios as a function of charged particle multiplicity in the rapidity range (- 0.5 $<$ $y_\mathrm{CM}$ $<$ 0). The parton energy loss is also studied by measuring the nuclear modification factors of K$^{*0}$ and $\phi$ with other available results in p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{\it{s}_{NN }}$ = 5.02 and 8.16 TeV. In addition, the first measurements of the rapidity dependence of K$^{*0}$ and $\phi$ production at $\sqrt{\it{s}_{NN }}$ = 5.02 will be presented. These results will also be compared with different model predictions.

        Hard symmetry breaking effects in effective theories of the QCD phase diagram 20m

        Effective Field Theories (EFTs) provide a systematic framework in which all terms consistent with the symmetries up to a specific mass dimension are written down in the lagrangian. We explore the consequence of the assumption that a fermionic EFT describes the QCD crossover.

        This EFT was analyzed for zero quark number chemical potential ($\mu=0$) in Ref. [1] considering all chirally symmetric terms up to dimension $6$. Following previous literature [3,4] the only explicit chiral symmetry breaking term considered was the quark mass $m_q\bar{\psi}\psi$. The independent coupling constants of the theory were fit to Euclidean $\pi$ velocity and the $\pi$ screening mass measured on the lattice [2] at $T=0.84T_{co}$ ($T_{co}$ is the crossover temperature) and yielded an independent prediction: $\pi$ decay constant $f$ which agreed with the lattice data. The theory describes the variations of these $\pi$ properties near the crossover temperature at $\mu=0$.

        In this work we analyze the implications of the effective theory for finite $\mu$. From the symmetry point of view a finite quark mass $m_q\bar{\psi}\psi$ breaks chiral symmetry, $\mu\bar{\psi}\gamma^4\psi$ breaks CP symmetry. Usually, analysis is simplified by assuming that only soft symmetry breaking terms (dimension less than $4$) appear which means that these two are the only explicit symmetry breaking terms in the lagrangian. In an effective theory with a cutoff however, a softly broken symmetry will inevitably lead to terms of dimension greater than $4$, which break the symmetry under consideration -- also known as hard symmetry breaking.

        We study the consequences of adding hard breaking of symmetries in fermionic effective theory models for QCD. We focus on the behaviour of two mean fields, the chiral condensate $\langle\bar{\psi}\psi\rangle$ and the number density $\langle\bar{\psi}\gamma^4\psi\rangle$ in the QCD phase diagram. In the absence of hard breaking terms, the two condensates are connected by mean field definitions of the mass and the chemical potential.

        At $\mu=0$ the impact of hard chiral symmetry breaking is simply a redefinition of the four Fermi coupling constant and is inconsequential. For finite chemical potential in the chiral limit no new terms appear but we show using an analysis with two mean fields that the curvature of the critical line changes. This depends on a new linear combination of the coupling constants of the dimension $6$ operators and this combination can be chosen to match the value of the curvature calculated on the lattice [5]. This resolves the discrepancy of our previous calculation [1] of the curvature of the critical line and the lattice.

        Finally, when $m_q$ and $\mu$ are both finite, hard breaking induces a direct coupling between the two condensates. This additional coupling affects the location of the crossover temperature (defined as the maximum of chiral susceptibility) as a function of the chemical potential. The curvature of the crossover line can be used to match this additional constant and this fixes the phase diagram in this framework. This constrains the location of the QCD critical point.

        Hawking radiation from acoustic black hole in relativistic heavy-ion collisions 20m

        In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, quark-gluon plasma can have a supersonic motion in the longitudinal direction. The quark-gluon plasma also has barotropic equation of state, negligibly small $\eta/s$ ratio, and irrotational velocity profile (specially in the central collisions, where there is no net initial angular momentum). Thus it can be used to construct an analog model of gravity, and there is possibility to have analog (acoustic) black hole Hawking radiation in the fluid. The plasma in relativistic heavy-ion collisions has a large velocity gradient in the longitudinal direction. Therefore, analog Hawking temperature, produced in the fluid, can not be neglected in comparison to the background temperature of the fluid. Using ultra-relativistic quantum molecular dynamics model (UrQMD), we show that it is possible to have temporarily static sonic horizon in relativistic heavy-ion collisions allowing the applicability of conventional ideas of Hawking radiation. We also study the time evolution of conformal factor (energy density/baryon density where fluid velocity is zero) arising in the acoustic metric and discuss its possible implications (as well as the implications of moving acoustic horizon). We propose possible observational signal for this Hawking radiation in the experiment.

        High transverse momentum direct photons in p+Au collisions in PHENIX at RHIC 20m

        The primary source of high transverse momentum (>4-5GeV/c) direct photons is the initial hard scattering of partons, specifically the quark-gluon Compton scattering process. This has been validated not only in hadron-hadron, but also in heavy ion collisions (see for instance PRL 109 (2012) 152302), where the observed yields were proportional, as expected, to the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions as calculated from the Glauber model for various collision centralities. This observation supports that the collision geometry is well defined by the centrality measure we have been using, at least in the case when the colliding ions are large. The definition, however, is not obvious in very asymmetric collisions,
        like p+Au. We assume that high transverse momentum direct photons are a "standard candle" for initial hard scattering, and, per extension, for collision geometry not only for p+p and A+A, but also for small-on-large collisions. If true, comparing the centrality dependence of direct photon and hadron production in p+Au is a robust test of the applicability of the Glauber model in such systems. In this poster we will report on the status of the analysis of high transverse momentum direct photons in p+Au collisions at various centralities as well as of the direct photon / hadron ratios and its comparison with hadron production.

        Hypernuclei Production in CBM at FAIR - A Feasibility Study 20m

        The main goal of the CBM experiment at FAIR is to study the behavior of nuclear matter at very high baryonic density. This includes the exploration of the high density equation of state, search for the transition to a deconfined and chirally restored phase, critical endpoint. One of the promising diagnostic probes for these new states is the enhanced production of multi-strange (anti-)particles. The CBM detector is designed to measure such rare diagnostic probes multi-differentially with unprecedented precision and statistics. Important key observables are the production of hypernuclei and dibaryons. Theoretical models predict that single and even doubly-strange hypernuclei are produced in heavy-ion collisions with the maximum yield in the region of SIS100 energies. The discovery and investigation of new (doubly strange-)hypernuclei and of hyper-matter will shed light on the hyperon-nucleon and hyperon-hyperon interactions. In this talk, we will report the results of feasibility study on the production of single- and double-strange hypernuclei in CBM experiment. Implications on the high baryon density nuclear matter will be discussed.

        Identified light flavor particle production in "jetty" and "isotropic" pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Identified light flavour particles, such as the $\pi$, K, $\phi$ mesons and the p, $\Lambda$, $\Xi$ baryons, constitute interesting probes to investigate the collective behaviour recently observed in small collision systems. The underlying mechanisms of light flavour production are currently not well understood, and the mechanisms are explained in the framework of different models. pQCD models based on hard scatterings, such as PYTHIA, describe light flavour production via string-breakings and rope hadronization. Other thermal and statistical models, mainly dominated by soft processes, predict a mechanism for the production of light flavour particles based on mass hierarchies in (grand) canonical ensembles.

        This analysis is aimed to disentangle and isolate events that are dominated by soft processes ("isotropic") and hard processes ("jetty") by using the transverse spherocity observable. The light flavour production is then studied in both events with jet-like topologies and isotropic topologies, which are assumed to be dominated by hard and soft processes, respectively. This is done in an effort to pin-point the underlying mechanisms of the collective behaviour observed in small systems, such as radial flow and long-range angular correlations.

        In this contribution we report about the measurement of transverse momentum spectra of strange and non-strange mesons and baryons in transverse spherocity selected events. The results are obtained by exploiting the data collected with ALICE in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy, $\sqrt{s}$, of 13 TeV.

        Inclusive b-jet production with the ALICE detector at the LHC 20m

        Heavy-flavor quarks created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions are mostly produced in hard QCD processes during the early stages of the reaction and their production is largely unaffected in the later
        stages. They interact with the hot nuclear matter throughout the whole evolution of the systems via semi-hard and soft processes such as energy loss via gluon radiations and collisions. Nuclear modification of heavy flavor quarks in pA systems provides insight into
        cold nuclear matter effects such as (anti-)shadowing and $k_{T}$-broadening, and also serves as a baseline for studies in AA collisions. On this regard, fully reconstructed heavy-flavor jets
        provide additional information on the flavor (or mass) dependence of fragmentation, color charge effects as well as insight into the contribution of gluon splitting on heavy-flavor production.

        The ALICE detector at the LHC has excellent tracking capabilities which allow to identify displaced secondary vertices of B-hadron decays and hence enable the reconstruction of b-jets.

        In this contribution, we will present $p_{\rm T}$-differential b-jet production cross section in ${\rm p-Pb}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV measured by the ALICE experiment. The NLO pQCD (POWHEG) predictions will be compared to the data.

        Inclusive diffractive heavy quarkonium photoproduction in pp, pA and AA collisions 20m

        The inclusive $J/\Psi$ production by direct and resolved photoproduction in the $\gamma p$ scattering is calculated based on the nonrelativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD) factorization formalism, which is in good agreement with the experimental data of total cross section distribution of heavy quarkonium production at HERA. Then we extend the formalism including the direct and resolved photoproduction processes to resolved pomeron model to study the heavy quarkonium photoproduction at the LHC energies. We present the predictions of rapidity and transverse momentum distributions of the inclusive diffractive $J/\Psi$, $\Psi(2S)$ and $\Upsilon$ photoproduction in $pp$, $pPb$ and $PbPb$ collisions at the LHC energies. Our numerical results indicate that the resolved photoproduction processes play an important role in the heavy quarkonium production. Especially for $pp$ collisions, the contribution of resolved photoproduction processes is the largest, which can reach to $28\%$, $13\%$ and $44\%$ for the rapidity distributions of $J/\Psi$, $\Psi(2S)$ and $\Upsilon$ inclusive diffractive photoproduction, respectively.

        The Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) is a state of matter at extremely high energy density, where the quark and gluon constituents of nucleons become deconfined. Although there is strong evidence at RHIC and the LHC that the QGP is created in A+A collisions, it was initially assumed to be absent in smaller systems, such as p+p and p+A collisions. However, the observation of flow-like correlations in such collisions at the LHC and RHIC has made the existence of the QGP in small systems an open question. High momentum partons produced at early stages of heavy ion collisions generate collimated sprays of hadrons called \textit{jets}. These partons lose energy when passing through the medium. This effect, usually referred to as \textit{jet quenching}, is well established as a probe of the existence and properties of the QGP.

        In this analysis, we aim to investigate p+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=200$ GeV at STAR for possible evidence of jet quenching by studying the binary-scaled inclusive jet yield. Measurements for both full (charged + neutral) and charged jets will be presented. We will present preliminary results on jet spectra along with our analysis process, and compare the jet yields in different backward (Au-going direction) event activity bins. Progress on our simulation procedures will be shown, including the Glauber model calculation and detector response simulations. Progress towards the resultant nuclear modification factor $R_{\mathrm{pAu}}$, after we scale with the average number of binary nucleon collisions from the Glauber model calculation, will also be discussed.

        Influence of Initial-state shape deformations in Ultra Central collisions 20m

        We study the fluctuation of shape-deformation as currently implemented in MC-Glauber-like models and their consequences on the magnitude of initial-state eccentricities. We show that for both deformed and spherical colliding species, there are large fluctuations in the deformation that emerge event by event. We characterize these deformations with the ratio of the largest and smallest eigenvalues ($\lambda_1$ and $\lambda_3$) of the covariance matrix for the coordinates of the colliding nucleons. The second order initial-state eccentricity $\varepsilon_2$, shows a strong correlation with fluctuations of the ratio $\lambda_1/\lambda_3$ for ultra central collisions; the conditional mean $E(\varepsilon_2|(\lambda_1/\lambda_3)_1+(\lambda_1/\lambda_3)_2)$ varies by O(100\%) for 0-1\% Pb+Pb collisions. However, the number of participants, as well as the higher-order eccentricities, are unmodified. We further show, via acoustic scaling, that for constrained values of $\lambda_1/\lambda_3$, $v_n/\varepsilon_n$ for ultra-central collisions, scale in the same way as for mid-central and peripheral collisions for the wealth of differential $v_n$ measurements in ultra-central collisions.

        Influence of the neutron skin effect on nuclear isobar collisions at RHIC 20m

        The unambiguous observation of a Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME)-driven charge separation is the core aim of the isobar program at RHIC consisting of ${^{96}_{40}}$Zr+${^{96}_{40}}$Zr and ${^{96}_{44}}$Ru+${^{96}_{44}}$Ru collisions at $\sqrt {s_{\rm NN}}\!=\!200$ GeV.We quantify the role of the isobars spatial distributions on both the eccentricity and the magnetic field strength within a relativistic hadronic transport approach (SMASH).In particular, we introduce isospin-dependent nucleon-nucleon spatial correlations in the geometric description of both nuclei, deformation for ${^{96}_{44}}$Ru and the so-called neutron skin effect for the neutron-rich isobar i.e. ${^{96}_{40}}$Zr.The main result of this study is a reduction of the magnetic field strength difference between ${^{96}_{44}}$Ru+${^{96}_{44}}$Ru and ${^{96}_{40}}$Zr+${^{96}_{40}}$Zr from $10\%$ to $5\%$ in peripheral collisions when the neutron-skin effect is included.Further, we find an increase up to 10\% of the eccentricity when deformation is taken into account while neither the neutron skin effect nor the nucleon-nucleon correlations result into a significant modification of this observable with respect to the traditional Woods-Saxon modeling.Our results suggest a smaller CME signal to background ratio for the experimental charge separation measurement in peripheral collisions with the isobar systems than previously expected.

        Influences of electromagnetic field characteristics on the CME and CMW measurements 20m

        Many great efforts have been made to investigate the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) and Chiral Magnetic Wave (CMW), which reply on the existence of extremely large electromagnetic fields in relativistic heavy-ion collisions.

        However, the current main difficulty of measuring the CME signal is some backgrounds which we do not understand clearly. To isolate the influence of those backgrounds, the isobar program at RHIC has been proposed and it collides $_{44}^{96}\textrm{Ru}+_{44}^{96}\textrm{Ru}$ and $_{40}^{96}\textrm{Zr}+_{40}^{96}\textrm{Zr}$ elements, since they have a same nucleon number but the 10$\%$ difference of proton number. The CME signal is expected to be different between the two isobaric collisions. By investigating the the properties of electromagnetic fields in two isobaric collisions with special emphasis on the correlation between magnetic field direction and participant plane angle $\Psi_{2}$ (or spectator plane angle $\Psi_{2}^{SP}$), i.e. $\langle$cos2$(\Psi_B - \Psi_{2})\rangle$ [or $\langle$cos2$(\Psi_B - \Psi_{2}^{SP})\rangle$], we confirm that the magnetic fields of $_{44}^{96}\textrm{Ru}+_{44}^{96}\textrm{Ru}$ collisions are stronger than those of $_{40}^{96}\textrm{Zr}+_{40}^{96}\textrm{Zr}$ collisions. Moreover, we find that the $\textbf{deformation of nuclei has a non-negligible effect on}$ $\langle$cos2$(\Psi_B - \Psi_{2})\rangle$, especially in peripheral events. Because the magnetic field direction is more strongly correlated with $\Psi_{2}^{SP}$ than with $\Psi_{2}$, $\textbf{the relative difference of the chiral magnetic effect observable with respect to}$ $\Psi_{2}^{SP}$ $\textbf{is expected to}$ $\\$ $\textbf{be able to reflect much cleaner information about the CME with less influences of deformation}$[1].

        What is more, with the presence of magnetic field, the coupling of the vector and axial currents induced by the chiral anomaly can motivate a collective gapless excitation in QGP, i.e. CMW. The CMW can lead to an electric quadrupole moment in relativistic heavy-ion collision, which explains the observed charge-dependent elliptic flow of pions. In our study, a dipolar distribution of $\bf E \cdot B$ is observed at the non-central collisions in Au+Au collisions at the RHIC energy $\sqrt{s}$=200 GeV. More importantly, we find that the coupling of the dipole QED anomaly and magnetic field $\bf B$ can also induce an electric quadrupole moment which can further lead to the difference in elliptic flows between positive charged particles and negative charged particles through final interactions. The centrality dependence of the density of $\bf E \cdot B$ is similar to the trend of the slope parameter $r$ measured from the difference in elliptic flows between positive pions and negative pions by the STAR collaboration. Therefore, $\textbf{the novel mechanism for electric quadrupole moment generation can offer a new}$ $\textbf{interpretation of the observed charge-dependent elliptic flow of pions, but without the}$ $\textbf{formation}$ $\\$ $\textbf{of CMW}$[2].

        Initial Conditions of Conserved Charges in Heavy-Ion Collisions 20m

        In this talk, I will present a new procedure for dynamically generating conserved charges (baryon number, strangeness, and electric charge) to supplement an arbitrary initial condition for ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions. This algorithm, which we denote ICCING (Initial Conserved Charges in Nuclear Geometries), treats an initial distribution of energy density as if it were composed entirely of gluons. It then samples the probabilities for a gluon to split into a quark-antiquark pair, which we have calculated in the color-glass condensate framework, to redistribute this energy density in space along with the conserved charges carried only by quarks. In this way, we provide a new tool to the community which can be incorporated into any initial-condition framework to initialize the conserved charges. Interestingly, we find that the quark flavors couple differently to the collision geometry: up and down quarks are produced by the bulk event geometry, while strange and charm quarks are preferentially produced from hot spots. As such, different quark flavors can possess significantly different eccentricities which drive the ensuing flavor-dependent flow response.

        Insight into $K^*(892)^{0}$ production in pp collisions as a function of collision energy, event-shape and multiplicity with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        The lifetimes of short-lived hadronic resonances are comparable to the hadronic phase of the medium produced in high-energy collisions. Thus, these resonances are sensitive to the re-scattering and regeneration processes in the time interval between the chemical and kinetic freeze-out, which might affect the resonance yields. In addition, event shape observables like transverse spherocity are sensitive to the hard and soft processes and they represent a useful tool to separate the isotropic and jetty events in pp collisions. Furthermore the measurements in small systems are used as a reference for ion-ion collisions and are helpful for the tuning of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) inspired event generators. In this contribution, we present recent results on $K^*(892)^{0}$ obtained by the ALICE experiment in pp collisions at several collision energies, event multiplicities and as a function of transverse spherocity. The results include the transverse momentum spectra, yields and their ratio to long-lived particles. The measurements will be compared with model predictions and measurements at lower energies.

        Insight into Multiplicity Dependence of Strangeness and Resonance Production from Small to Large System with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        One of the important results of the LHC Run 1 was the observation of an enhanced production of strange particles in high multiplicity pp and p-Pb collisions at 7 and 5.02 TeV, respectively. A smooth evolution of yields of strange particles relative to the non-strange ones with event multiplicity has been observed in those systems. Results from Run 2 at the top LHC energy allows us to improve previous measurements by exploiting a dedicated high multiplicity trigger. This offers the unique opportunity to study, in elementary collisions, the multiplicity range covered by semi-peripheral Pb-Pb collisions. We present the latest results obtained with ALICE on the multiplicity-dependent strangeness production. The strangeness enhancement is investigated by measuring the evolution with multiplicity of single-strange and multi-strange baryon production relative to non-strange particles. In addition recent measurements of mesonic and baryonic resonances in small collision systems are shown. We investigate the system size dependence in different collision systems as well as lower collision energies to study how the hadronic scattering processes affect measured resonance yields, as well as the interplay between canonical suppression and strangeness enhancement. The measurement of the $\phi$(1020) meson as a function of multiplicity provides crucial constraints in this context. Energy and system-type invariance are discussed and an extensive comparison with statistical hadronization and QCD-inspired models are presented.

        Investigating the non-flow effect in proton+proton collisions from two-particle correlation using PYTHIA8 20m

        To explain the underlying mechanisms involved in particle production and the properties of the strongly interacting nuclear matter produced in high multiplicity p+p collisions, one can use two particle azimuthal correlation method as an important tool. We present here measurements of two particle azimuthal correlation with neutral pion$(\pi^0)$, neutral kaon$(k^0)$ and proton as trigger particles having the highest transverse momentum ($p_{T}$) and associated charged hadrons of transverse momentum $(p_{T}) >$ 0.5 in an event on the basis of the difference in azimuthal angle ($\Delta \phi$) and pseudorapidity ($\Delta \eta$) at midrapidity in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV using the pQCD inspired model PYTHIA8. Multiplicity dependent study of these measurements can explain the production and hadronization of particles at different multiplicities. In order to explain the collective behavior of the medium formed, we can use this analysis. Mixed event technique is used to obtain the pure correlation distribution and afterward, the per-trigger yields are extracted on the near side ($ |\Delta \phi| < 0.7$) as well as on the away side ($ |\Delta \phi - \pi|<1.1$). The modification in the per-trigger yields is given by a factor $I_{AA}$ which is the ratio of near-side to away-side yields. The collectivity of the medium is explained by the Fourier coefficient ($v_{2}$) extracted from the two particles angular correlation function. This explains the collective motion of the particles. The mass dependency of particles and the behavior of mean transverse momentum ($\langle p_{T} \rangle$) as a function of charged-particle multiplicity is presented.

        Ion Backflow Studies for the sPHENIX TPC 20m

        A Time Projection Chamber is the main tracking system for the proposed sPHENIX experiment at RHIC. It will measure space points of charged tracks, which provide the needed momentum resolution to separate the Upsilon states in decays to electrons and positrons.
        The strong magnetic field of the solenoid previously used in the BaBAR experiment, a Neon-based fast gas mixture, and an electric field providing a high drift velocity will mostly compensate for E-field distortions due to ion backflow in the current sPHENIX TPC design. A quadruple GEM stack with special hole patterns or a MicroMegas based amplification is expected to further reduce the ion backflow.

Isolation criterion is applied to select direct photons and reduce contamination from decay and fragmentation photons. The result will be compared to theoretical calculations.

        The measurement of isolated photon-tagged correlations of jets and jet fragments is a promising channel for the study of partonic energy loss in heavy-ion collisions. We use a combination of isolation and electromagnetic shower-shape information obtained from the ALICE electromagnetic calorimeter and ALICE Inner Tracking System to reduce the large background from meson decays and fragmentation photons. We present isolated photon-hadron correlations and yields of charged hadrons in the unexplored kinematic range given by 10-40 GeV/$c$ $p_{\rm T}$ photons and 0.5-15 GeV/$c$ $p_{\rm T}$ charged tracks in $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = $ 5.02 TeV pp and p--Pb collisions. We report the first measurement of photon-tagged fragmentation in p--Pb at the LHC.

        J/$\psi$ elliptic flow at mid-rapidity in Pb--Pb collsions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        In the early and hottest phase of nucleus-nucleus collisions the formation of a Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) is expected. Several QGP induced effects, such as the melting of charmonium states due to color screening or the recombination of uncorrelated charm and anti-charm quarks, can influence charmonium yields. Recent ALICE measurements of charmonium nuclear modification factor in Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 2.76 TeV and $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 5.02 TeV showed that the (re)combination mechanism plays a dominant role in the production of charmonia at low $p_{\mathrm{T}}$. In addition, the positive elliptic flow, $v_{2} $, measured for low-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ J/$\psi$ and D-mesons in Pb--Pb collisions suggests that the charm quarks thermalize in the QGP.

        We report on the new measurement of the low and intermediate $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ J/$\psi$ elliptic flow at mid-rapidity ($|y|<$ 0.9) in Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 5.02 TeV. The J/$\psi$ mesons are reconstructed in the di-electron decay channel using the ALICE central barrel. We employ the Pb--Pb data sets recorded by ALICE during LHC Run 2 in 2015 and 2018. These results are complementary to the existing ALICE measurements at forward rapidity and to ATLAS and CMS high $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ results at mid-rapidity and will be discussed in the context of recent model calculations.

        J/$\psi$ production at mid-rapidity in p-Pb collisions with the ALICE detector 20m

        The understanding of cold nuclear matter (CNM) effects are essential to study the properties of a state of deconfined quarks and gluons, the quark-gluon plasma, created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. CNM effects can be studied in p-Pb collisions.
        Furthermore, some results in high-multiplicity p-Pb collisions suggest collectivity similar to that in Pb-Pb collisions. For J/$\psi$ production, a positive second-order flow coefficient ($v_{2}$) was observed at forward and backward rapidity and the origin of this J/$\psi$ $\it{v}_{2}$ remains an open question.
        The centrality dependent nuclear modification factor ($\it{Q}_{\rm{pPb}}$) as a function of transverse momentum ($\it{p}_{\rm{T}}$) was also measured at backward and forward rapidity. At backward rapidity an enhancement of the J/$\psi$ yield was observed around intermediate $\it{p}_{\rm{T}}$ in central p-Pb collisions, while the J/$\psi$ yield is strongly suppressed at low $\it{p}_{\rm{T}}$ at forward rapidity.

        A multi-differential analysis with respect to collision centrality and $\it{p}_{T}$ is performed for inclusive J/$\psi$ production at mid-rapidity via the dielectron decay channel with the ALICE detector. In this poster, the centrality dependence of the inclusive J/$\psi$ production will be presented as well as the inclusive J/$\psi$ nuclear modification factor in minimum bias events.

        On the other hand, phenomenological studies have shown that primordial quarkonium in heavy-ion collisions can be polarized by the strong magnetic field generated by the two colliding nuclei, while re-combined quarkonium is expected to be completely unpolarized.

The measurement samples the gluon distribution of lead down to x~$10^{-5}$. The increased statistics of the LHC Run 2 data sample resulted in a significant improvement in the precision of the measurement.

        J/ψ production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV at forward rapidity with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        In high-energy (proton-proton) pp collisions, there can be a substantial contribution from Multi-Parton Interactions (MPI) in particle production mechanisms. In this case, several interactions at the partonic level occur in a single pp collision and this implies a correlation between the particle production and the total event multiplicity. At LHC energies, MPI might occur at hard momentum scales, thus affecting the heavy-quark production. Such an effect can be investigated by studying the correlations between heavy-flavour production and the total charged-particle multiplicity. In this poster, we will present the preliminary results of $\rm{J}/\psi$ production (yield and mean transverse momentum) as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV at forward rapidity (2.5 $< y <$ 4) using the data collected by ALICE. $\rm{J}/\psi$ are reconstructed via $\rm{J}/\psi \rightarrow \mu^{+} + \mu^{-}$ decay channel using the Forward Muon Spectrometer, while the charged-particle multiplicity is obtained from the Silicon Pixel Detector. The results will be compared with several perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics inspired models.

These components are classified into three categories: (i) the production, propagation and fragmentation of hard partons; (ii) the pre-hydrodynamic evolution, viscous hydrodynamic expansion and hadronic cascade describing the dynamics of the soft degrees of freedom defining the fireball medium; and (iii) the correlations and interactions between hard and soft particles, during the initial production stage, via in-medium energy loss, and through the medium’s response to it.

        Several experimental observables, sensitive to the evolution of the system after nuclear collisions, reveal important information about the properties of the QGP. Among such observables is the production rate of strange quarks, which were originally predicted to be produced with higher probability in a QGP scenario with respect to a pure hadron gas scenario. Studies of strangeness production at LHC energies, compared with the lower energy measurements, can help to determine the properties of the hot system created in ultra-relativistic collisions of heavy ions. In this work, we present results on strangeness production in p-Pb collisions measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC.
        The excellent tracking and particle identification capabilities of ALICE can be used to reconstruct strange hadrons via invariant-mass analysis of their weak decay products.

        Kibble-Zurek scaling near the QCD critical point 20m

        The dynamical models near the critical point are important tools to study the critical phenomena for RHIC BES program. However, the related model calculations depends on various parameters and inputs. In this talk, I will focus on the universal behavior of the dynamical evolving systems near the critical point, which is insensitive to various parameters and input in the model calculations.

        In [1,2], we have investigated the Kibble-Zurek scaling within the framework Langevin dynamics of the order parameter field and net-protons, and within the framework of stochastic diffusion dynamics of conserved charges. We constructed universal functions which are insensitive to various parameters through rescaling the traditional correlation function and cumulant with the properly determined characteristic scales $\tau_{kz}$ ,$\theta_{kz}$ and $l_{kz}$.

        In more details, for the dynamic of non-conserved order parameter, the constructed universal functions are insensitive to the magnitude of relaxation time and the evolving trajectory on phase diagram. And coupling with the net-proton, the oscillating behavior is suppressed for the constructed universal function, comparing with the original cumulants which strongly oscillate in terms of relaxation time and trajectory. For the dynamics of conserved charge, we also construct the universal functions, which are insensitive to the different initial temperature and a parameter in the equation of state.

        Kinetics and hydrodynamics close to the chiral limit 20m

        First, we recall that close to the chiral limit, and below the critical temperature, the long wavelength effective theory of QCD is not ordinary hydrodynamics, but SU(2)xSU(2) superfluid hydrodynamics (Son 2000). In this theory the usual hydrodynamic variables such as energy are momentum are augmented by long wavelength pions. When the pion is massive, the effective theory reduces to normal hydrodynamics at large distances, but is described by the superfluid theory at short distances. Using techniques developed by Akamatsu et al (Akamatsu 2017), we integrate out the superfluid modes to determine how the transport coefficients of QCD such as the bulk viscosity depend on the pion mass below the critical temperature. These expressions are given by the dissipative parameters in the superfluid theory. We show how to compute these parameters in chiral perturbation theory using the associated chiral kinetic theory.

        Lambda and antilambda hyperons polarization in heavy-ion collisions within transport model 20m

        $\Lambda$ and $\bar{\Lambda}$ polarization in heavy-ion collisions at BES RHIC energies is studied within the microscopic transport model UrQMD. Two approaches, (1) thermal and (2) axial anomaly approach, are considered. We trace the formation and space-time evolution of vorticiity and helicity patterns in details. This study demands a complex analysis of the fireball conditions including time slices, extraction of temperature and baryo- and strangeness chemical potentials, as well as freeze-out conditions of both hyperons. Rapidity and transverse momentum dependence of the polarization are obtained. We show that difference in global polarization of Lambda and antilambda at c.m. energies below 10 GeV can be explained by different space-time freeze-out conditions of two hyperons. Comparison with the STAR results shows a fair agreement between the model and the data.

        Light Nuclei (d, t) Production in Au+Au Collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 27 and 54.4 GeV from the STAR experiment 20m

        In high energy nuclear collisions, light nuclei production is sensitive to the baryon density fluctuations and thus can be used to study the QCD phase transition. For example, the neutron density fluctuation can be extracted from the yield ratio of proton, deuteron and triton, $N_{\mathrm{p}} N_{\mathrm{t}} / N_{\mathrm{d}}^{2}$, which may provide a method to study critical phenomena in relativistic heavy-ion collisions.

        In this poster, we will present measurements of (anti-)deuteron and triton production in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 27 and 54.4 GeV. These results are obtained from the large data samples collected by the STAR experiment in the years 2018 and 2017, respectively. We will show the centrality dependence for the coalescence parameters $B_2(d)$ and $B_3(t)$, particle ratios ($d/p$, $t/p$, and $t/d$), and the yield ratio of $N(t)$$\cdot$$N(p)$/$N^2(d)$. Their physics implications will be discussed.

        Limitations of Principal Component Analysis in Heavy-Ion Collisions 20m

        Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a mathematical tool that can capture the most important information (variance) in data. Recently, CMS collaboration applied the PCA technique to analyze the data in Pb+Pb collisions, and a non-zero subleading mode has been extracted and interpreted as arising from subleading eccentricity [1][2]. In this talk, we study the performance of PCA method in the study of the factorization breaking effects of harmonic flow in two-particle correlation analysis [3]. We show that the choice of weighting factor in the orthogonality criteria, and $p_T$ range of the analysis, and even the statistical uncertainty of the input data could lead to significantly different results in the extracted single-particle flow modes. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the sensitivity of PCA procedure to these issues before one could attach any physics interpretation of the subleading flow modes obtained.

        Local Lambda polarization and feed-down effect in heavy-ion collisions 20m

        Spin polarization of $\Lambda$ hyperon has been observed by STAR in non-central heavy-ion collisions [1,2,3]. Among these measurements, the global polarization reflects the bulk-averaged value of the vorticity, while the local polarization probes more detailed structure of the vorticity field.

        We have studied the $\Lambda$ polarization in heavy-ion collisions using a multi-phase transport (AMPT) model. The results show that:

        1. The value of global polarization decreases with increasing collision energy [4]. This is in agreement with the measurement [1,2].
        2. Because of the non-uniform transverse expansion of the fireball, it can produce transverse vorticity circling the beam direction and further generate transverse local polarization [5].
        3. The result for the longitudinal local polarization [5] is consistent with the hydrodynamic calculation. However, these calculations have an opposite sign comparing to the experiment measurement [3].

        To resolve this sign puzzle, we further study the effect of feed-down decay on local $\Lambda$ polarization [6]. We develop a theoretical framework to study how spin polarization is transferred from parent to daughter particle in two-body decay. After Monte-Carlo simulation, we find that the feed-down effect suppresses the primordial $\Lambda$ polarization, but can not flip the sign.

        Locating the critical point in QCD phase diagram using heat capacity 20m

        One of the main aims of beam energy scan (BES) program at relativistic heavy ion collider (RHIC) is to locate the position of critical point in the ($T-\mu_B$) plane of QCD where the first order transition ends and cross over transition begins. Here $T$ denotes temperature and $\mu_B$ stands for baryonic chemical potential.At the critical point, quantities like specific heat and susceptibility
        are expected to diverge due to long range correlation.

        In this work, we have studied variation of specific heat, speed of sound with center-of-mass energies for Au+Au collision at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 7.7, 11.5,19.6, 27.0, 39.0, 62.4, 200 GeV with the help of Hadronic Resonance Gas (HRG) model by using temperature and chemical potential which are extracted from the freeze-out surface at these energies. It is observed that trend of variation of these quantities drastically change at a particular $\sqrt(s_{NN}$)} lying between 39 to 62.4 GeV, thereby hinting toward the possible location of the QCD critical point.

        Long-range azimuthal correlations arising with HBT suppressions in partially coherent pion emissions in AA and pp collisions 20m

        The presence of coherence in pion emission will suppress the strength of the final-state pion HBT correlations. The recently observed significant pion HBT suppressions in both Pb-Pb and pp collisions at the LHC indicate the pion emissions may be partially coherent in such violent collisions. In this talk we will show that the coherence in particle emission can give rise to a remarkable long-range azimuthal correlation.

        In Ref [1], we study the pion transverse-momentum spectrum and elliptic anisotropy of an expanding coherent source with a classical current radiation model. It is found that the elliptic anisotropy of coherent emission is connected to the source initial geometry through an interference effect but is not sensitive to the source expansion (flow effect). We further construct a partially coherent source by adding an incoherent emission component described by a viscous hydrodynamic model. The partially coherent source model can successfully reproduce the experimental data on the pion $p_T$ spectrum, $v_2(p_T)$ as well as 4-pion HBT correlations in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC.

        Furthermore, we focus on the coherence phenomena in pp collisions in Ref [2]. We extend the coherent pion source by incorporating a Bjorken longitudinal expansion and study the long-range two-particle angular correlations. A “ridge” structure is found to arise from the interferences in coherent emission and to be largely related to the source transverse shape and size at the initial time. From the 2-pion HBT measurement at the LHC, we extract a coherent fraction increasing with the charged-particle multiplicity, as an input of a partially coherent pion emission model, and the calculations suggest a more pronounced ridge effect from the coherent pion emission in high-multiplicity pp collisions.

        Low mass dielectron studies with the HADES and CBM experiments at GSI/FAIR* 20m

        The High Acceptance DiElectron Spectrometer (HADES) and the Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) are dedicated to study strongly interacting matter at high baryon densities and moderate temperatures. Being penetrating probes, dielectrons are a key observable to get direct access to the fireball.
        Currently the HADES experiment is located at SIS 18 at GSI, Darmstadt and will be moved in future to the CBM pit and continue its physics program at SIS100. Both experiments are complementary to each other in terms of detector setup and measureable energy range making it interesting to study one system at both experiments for comparison and verification of the CBM results. Currently Ag+Ag collisions at 4.5A GeV is favored. A major component for electron identification in both experiments is a RICH detector. The HADES RICH detector has been successfully upgraded within FAIR Phase-0 and showed an excellent performance in the recent Ag+Ag beamtime at 1.58A GeV at SIS 18 in March 2019.
        In this poster we present dielectron spectra based on the data collected in this beamtime, clearly showing the potential of dielectrons at HADES. Furthermore simulation results regarding dielectron spectra at HADES and CBM in Ag+Ag collisions at 4.5A GeV are shown as those are planned to be measured at SIS 100.

        Low-$p_{T}$ $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ pair production in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{\rm NN}}}$ = 200 GeV at STAR 20m

        In high energy heavy-ion collisions, the strong electromagnetic (EM) fields of the nuclei can produce energetic, high-density photon fluxes, leading to photon-induced interactions. Recently, significant enhancements of $e^{+}e^{-}$ pair and J/$\psi$ production at very low transverse momentum ($p_{T}$) were observed by the STAR [1, 2] and ALICE [3] collaborations in peripheral hadronic A+A collisions. The excess yields exhibit a much weaker centrality dependence compared to the expectation for hadronic production, and are consistent with coherent photon-photon and photon-nucleus interactions. The measured $p_{T}$ broadening for $e^{+}e^{-}$ pairs may indicate the existence of a strong magnetic field in the medium. Measurements with $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ pairs provide a complementary channel to investigate these phenomena.

        In 2014 and 2016, the STAR experiment at RHIC recorded large samples of Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{\rm NN}}}$ = 200 GeV with di-muon triggers utilizing the Muon Telescope Detector. In this poster, we will present invariant mass and yield distributions as a function of centrality for inclusive $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ pair production at $p_{T} < 0.15$ GeV/$c$ in the mass range large than 2.6 GeV/$c^{2}$. The $p_{T}^{2}$ distribution of the excess yields for these very low $p_{T}$ $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ pairs will also be shown. Physics implications will be discussed together with model comparisons.

        Low-mass dielectron measurements in minimum-bias pp collisions at 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Low-mass dielectrons play a key role in the understanding of the chiral-symmetry restoration and in the study of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. In the intermediate-mass region, the measurement of thermal dielectrons from the QGP is nevertheless very challenging at the LHC due to the dominant contribution of e$^{+}$e$^{-}$ pairs from open-charm and -beauty hadron decays. To single out the interesting signal characteristics of the QGP, the primordial e$^{+}$e$^{-}$ pair production in vacuum needs to be first understood. It can be studied in minimum-bias proton-proton collisions. Dielectron measurements in elementary collision systems serve not only as a reference for the heavy-ion analysis but provide also a test for Monte-Carlo event generators, aiming to reproduce the heavy-flavour production mechanisms.

        In this poster, we will present the status of the dielectron analysis in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 5.02 TeV with ALICE. The dielectron yield is studied as a function of invariant mass, pair transverse momentum, and pair transverse impact parameter (DCA$_{\rm ee}$). The latter helps to disentangle prompt and non-prompt dielectron sources. The results can be compared to the expectated dielectron cross section from known hadronic sources.

        Machine learning approach for studying of dielectrons from open charm and beauty decays in p-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        The measurement of low-mass $e^+e^-$ pairs is a powerful tool to study the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Since such pairs do not interact strongly and are emitted during all stages of the collisions, they provide information about the full time evolution and dynamics of the medium created.
        Measurements in pp collisions are the necessary reference for heavy-ion studies. Dielectron production in p-Pb collisions can be used to investigate initial state effects, due to the presence of cold nuclear matter in the collision.
        The main contribution to the dielectron continuum in the intermediate mass region 1.1 $<$ $\rm M_{\rm ee}$ $<$ 2.7 GeV/$c^2$ is coming from semi-leptonic decays of correlated beauty and charm hadrons.
        In this poster, one possible way to study dielectrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays and to separate them from from other dielectron sources with the ALICE detector at LHC will be presented.
        More explicitly, a machine learning approach based on Boosted Decision Tree (BDT) to isolate and study the contribution from heavy flavours will be explained.
        The study will be reported based on the p-Pb collision data at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV.

        Machine Learning Based Jet $p_{\rm T}$ Reconstruction with Full Jets in ALICE 20m

        Reconstructing the jet transverse momentum is a challenging task, particularly in heavy-ion collisions due to the large fluctuating background from the underlying event. While the standard area-based method effectively corrects for the average background, it does not account for region-to-region fluctuations. These residual fluctuations are handled in an unfolding procedure following the background subtraction.

        A novel method to correct the jet transverse momentum on a jet-by-jet basis to reduce these fluctuations by introducing a dependence on the jet fragmentation will be presented. We utilize machine learning techniques to reconstruct the full jet transverse momentum from jet parameters, including the constituents of the jet. The performance of this approach is evaluated using jets from PYTHIA simulations embedded into ALICE Pb--Pb data. In comparison to the standard area-based method, these machine learning based estimators show a significantly improved performance, which could allow for measurements of jets to lower transverse momenta and larger jet radii.

        Magnetic Field Induced Polarization Difference between Hyperons and Anti-hyperons 20m

        Recent STAR measurements of global hyperon polarization in AuAu Collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have attracted significant interest and generated wide enthusiasm. The data present an intriguing puzzle, showing a difference in the global spin polarization between hyperons and anti-hyperons, especially at relatively low collision beam energy. One possible cause of this difference is the potential presence of in-medium magnetic field. In this talk, we report our study on the phenomenological viability of this interpretation. Using the AMPT model framework, we quantify the influence of different magnetic field evolution scenarios on the size of the polarization difference in a wide span of collision beam energies. We find that such difference is very sensitive to the lifetime of the magnetic field and also mildly dependent on the precise form of magnetic field time dependence. Assuming magnetic polarization as the mechanism to enhance anti-hyperon signal while suppress hyperon signal, we phenomenologically extract an upper limit on the needed magnetic field lifetime in order to account for the experimental data. The so-obtained lifetime values are in a quite plausible ballpark and follow approximately the scaling relation of being inversely proportional to the beam energy. The time-integrated magnetic field shows an interesting non-monotonic dependence on the collision beam energy. Possible implications on other magnetic field related effects are discussed. Finally, we also report predictions for polarization effect in the CuCu and CuAu colliding systems, demonstrating an interesting hierarchy CuCu > CuAu > AuAu due to interplay between hyperon production timing and the evolution of vorticity. These predictions can be readily tested by future experimental analysis. [Refs: (1) arXiv:1905.12613; (2) Phys. Lett. B788(2019)409.]

        MC study of the reconstruction of $\pi^0$ in MPD/ECal 20m

        The main goal of NICA/MPD is to investigate the hot and dense baryonic matter in heavy-ion collisions over a wide range of atomic masses, from $Au+Au$ collisions at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 11GeV$ (for $Au^{79+}$) to proton-proton collisions with $\sqrt{s_{pp}}= 20GeV$.
        Electromagnetic calorimeter (ECal) is an important detector of the MPD to identify electrons, photons and measure their energy with high precision. The performance of the ECal is simulated and analyzed of a function of many parameters such as the multiplicity, energy spectrum, kinematic. $\pi^0$ signal can be reconstructed from two photons and it is a very important probe to give information of the chiral symmetry restoration and flow signal. The shape of reconstructed $\pi^0$ mass spectra is analyzed. Dependence of the $\pi^0$ reconstruction efficiency from the decay parameters is studied.
        Theta angle reconstructed in the ECal has a clear deviation from real angle as a function of Z position of the interacting point. This theta angle bias is caused by the small deviation from projective geometry for the Z position which is not equal to zero. This bias is corrected and applied to the reconstruction of $\pi^0$, which improved the results of the reconstruction of $\pi^0$.

        Measurement of $\text{D}^{0}$ production in d+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\text{NN}}}=200$ GeV by the STAR experiment 20m

        Owing to their large mass, charm quarks are predominantly produced through initial hard scatterings in heavy-ion collisions. Therefore, they can serve as penetrating probes to study the intrinsic properties of the hot medium created in heavy-ion collisions. However, Cold Nuclear Matter (CNM) effects can also affect the charm quark production in nuclear collisions with respect to p+p collisions. These effects can be measured in small systems such as d+Au collisions.

        In this poster, we will report the first measurement of $\text{D}^{0}$ production in d+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\text{NN}}}=200$ GeV by the STAR experiment taking advantage of its high-precision Heavy Flavor Tracker detector. $\text{D}^{0}$ ($\overline{\text{D}^{0}}$) mesons were topologically reconstructed from their hadronic decay channel $\text{D}^{0} (\overline{\text{D}^{0}})\rightarrow K^- \pi^+ (K^+ \pi^-)$. In order to further improve the signal significance, a supervised machine learning algorithm (Boosted Decision Trees) was used. The nuclear modification factor of the $\text{D}^{0}$ meson was extracted to quantify the CNM effects and compared to model calculations.

        Measurement of $\Xi^{0}_{c}$ baryon in pp collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        The ALICE detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is optimised for the inverstigation of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in heavy-ion collisions. Charm quarks are effective probes to elucidate the properties of the QGP. They are dominantly produced at the initial stage of the collisions via hard partonic scattering processes and experience the whole evolution of the system.Charm-baryon measurements provide unique insight into hadronisation processes. In particular, the baryon-to-meson ratio is expected to be enhanced if charm quarks hadronise via recombination with the surrounding light quarks in the QGP. Moreover, in such a recombination picture, the baryon-to-meson ratio could further be enhanced in the presence of diquark bound states in the hot and dense QCD medium.
        Measurements of charm-baryon production in pp collisions are essential to establish a baseline for Pb--Pb collisions studies.In addition, the measurements in pp collisions provide critical tests of pQCD calculations and for models of charm hadronisation in vacuum.In this poster the $p_{T}$ differential cross section times branching ratio of the $\Xi^{0}_{c}$ baryon measured in the decay channel $\Xi^{0}_{c} \rightarrow e\Xi\nu$ in pp collisions will be reported.

        Measurement of $D^{0}$ and $\overline{D^{0}}$ directed flow using KFParticle in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV from STAR 20m

        Charm quarks, owing to their large mass, are predominantly created through initial hard scatterings in relativistic heavy-ion collisions and thus are ideal probes to study early time dynamics of these collisions. Recent results from STAR show that the slope of $D^{0}$ mesons directed flow ($v_{1}$) versus rapidity is about 25 times larger than that of charged kaons, providing important constraints on the initial geometry and charm quark transport in the QGP. It has also been predicted that the transient electromagnetic field generated at early time can induce a difference between the $v_{1}$ of charm and anti-charm quarks, and the magnitude of this difference can be much larger than those of light-flavor hadrons due to the early formation of charm quarks.

        In this poster, we will present a new measurement of the directed flow for $D^{0}$ and $\overline{D^{0}}$ mesons in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV using data collected with the HeavyFlavor Tracker during the 2014 RHIC run. The $D^{0}$ ($\overline{D^{0}}$) mesons are reconstructed by an algorithm based on the Kalman Filter (KF Particle Finder package), which provides estimation of not only the tracking parameters themselves but also the corresponding covariance matrix as well. By using such additional information in the $D^{0}$ reconstruction, the signal significance is improved considerably. The $D^{0}$ and $\overline{D^{0}}$ meson $v_{1}$ and their difference will be presented as a function of rapidity and $p_{T}$, and compared with the results for light-flavor hadrons. These results will also be compared to model predictions and physics implications will be discussed.

        Measurement of directed and elliptic flow of $\phi$ meson in $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 3.0, 4.5 GeV Au+Au collisions at the STAR detector 20m

        The $\phi$ vector mesons have much smaller hadronic cross section which makes them less influenced at late-stage interactions than other hadrons [1-4]. Thus their anisotropies like the elliptic flow should be small if the system is always in a hadronic phase. This, in turn, makes $\phi$ meson $v_2$ especially sensitive to the energy where quark-gluon plasma turns off. Measurements from STAR at 7.7 and 11.5 GeV have seen $\phi$ $v_2$ at highest transverse momentum close to zero [5] and $\phi$ directed flow, $v_1$, is consistent with zero [6] with conclusions limited by statistics. On the other hand, the closeness of $\phi$ mass to the nucleon and its $s$ $\bar{s}$ constituent quarks makes them suitable to test the deviation of net-nucleon and net-meson $v_1$ at energies below 7.7 GeV where could be a breakdown of the assumption that $s$ and $\bar{s}$ quarks have the same flow [6]. Measurements of directed and elliptic flow of $\phi$ vector meson at 3.0 and 4.5 GeV Au+Au collisions at STAR will be presented and compared with RHIC Beam Energy Scan results from 7.7-39 GeV. Measurements will have better precision with increased particle acceptance and 100 more statistics at 3.0 GeV compared to 4.5 GeV from the STAR fixed-target run. Physics implication related to the search for quark-gluon plasma turn-off will also be discussed.

        Measurement of electrons from heavy- flavour hadron decays in proton-proton collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Due to their large masses, heavy quarks are produced in the early stages of relativistic heavy-ion collisions via initial hard scatterings. Therefore, they are considered as effective probes of the hot and dense Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in such collisions and witness the full evolution of the QGP. In pp collisions, the measurement of charm and beauty hadron production cross-sections can be used to test our understanding of the Quantum ChromoDynamics (QCD) in the perturbative regime. In addition, pp collisions provide the required reference for measurements in nuclear collisions such as the measurement of the nuclear modification factor ($R_{\rm AA}$) of electrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays.

        In this contribution, the $p_{\rm T}$-differential production cross-section of electrons from heavy-flavour and beauty-hadron decays in pp collisions at different center of mass energies from $\sqrt{s}$ = 2.76 to 13 TeV measured by ALICE at mid-rapidity are reported. The analysis procedures employed will be discussed. Comparisons of these results with the FONLL (Fixed-Order and Next-to-Leading Logarithms) model calculations will be shown.

        Measurement of heavy flavour jets with electrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays in pp and p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}}=$5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        In heavy-ion collisions, charm and beauty quarks are produced in the initial hard partonic scattering and interact with the hot and dense QCD matter (QGP).
        Therefore, measurements of heavy-flavour production provide relevant information on the properties of the QGP. The QCD predicts that partons lose energy via collisions with the plasma constituents and via gluon radiation, and the magnitude of the energy loss depends on the mass and the color charge of the parton. In Pb--Pb collisions, a strong suppression of heavy-flavour yields has been observed at high $p_{T}$ with respect to pp collisions scaled by the number of binary collisions which is attributed to energy loss of heavy quarks in the QCD medium. Further information about the heavy-quark energy loss mechanism can be obtained by measuring the production of jets containing open charm and beauty particles.

        Recently, a positive elliptic flow of open heavy-flavour particles has been observed in pA collisions and the possible formation of the QGP is under scrutiny.
        In this poster, we show the measurements of jets with electrons from open heavy-flavour hadron decays in pp and p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}}=$5.02 TeV.
        Jet measurements are performed with different resolution parameters ($R=$0.2, 0.3 and 0.4). The nuclear modification factors for the different resolution parameters are calculated. Finally the results are compared with model calculations.

        Measurement of Intermittency for Charged Particles in Au+Au Collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=7.7-200$ GeV from STAR 20m

        One of the main goals of RHIC beam energy scan program is to search for the signature of the QCD critical point in heavy-ion collisions. It is predicted that the local density fluctuations near critical point exhibit power-law scaling, which can be probed with a intermittency analysis of the scaled factorial moments ($F_{q}$) for charged particles. The power-law behavior of $q^{th}$ order scaled factorial moments can be expressed as: $F_{q}\sim (M^{2})^{\phi_{q}}$, where $M^{2}$ is the number of equally sized cells in momentum space, and $\phi_{q}$ is the intermittency index. The scaling exponent, $\nu$, related to the critical component can be derived from the ratio, $\phi_{q}/\phi_{2}$. The energy dependence of $\nu$ could be used to search for the signature of the QCD critical point. Such measurement is actively being pursued by the NA49 and NA61 Collaborations in large and small collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=17.3$ GeV. The BES-I data allow STAR to carry out such measurement over a much broader energy range of$\sqrt{s_{NN}}=7.7-200$ GeV. This poster present the collision-energy and centrality dependence of $\phi_{q}$ and $\nu$ of charged particles in Au+Au collisions measured by the STAR experiment. The physical implications of these results are discussed.

        Measurement of jet shape observables and their multiplicity dependence in pp collisions at LHC energies with ALICE 20m

        The measurement of jet shapes and their multiplicity dependence in pp collisions at LHC energies can provide insight on the production of jets and the interplay between jet fragmentation and event multiplicity in small colliding systems (pp,pA). In this contribution, we report the results on jet-shape measurements using the ALICE experiment in minimum bias pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 5, 7 and 13 TeV and its multiplicity dependence at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV.

        The observables to be presented include jet transverse profile, first radial moment, momentum dispersion and the difference of the leading and subleading track in the jet. The jet transverse profile describes the energy distribution inside the jet cone while the other observables provide complementary information on the jet fragmentation properties. Jets are reconstructed using anti-$k_{\rm T}$ algorithm with varying resolution parameter and jet $p_{\rm T}$.

        Measurement of non-flow influence on the CMW-sensitive slope parameter from STAR 20m

        The charge asymmetry ($A_{\rm ch}$) dependence of the $\pi^{+}$ and $\pi^{-}$ elliptic flow difference, $\Delta v_{2}(A_{\rm ch})\equiv v_{2}^{\pi^{-}}(A_{\rm ch}) - v_{2}^{\pi^{+}}(A_{\rm ch})$, is sensitive to the Chiral Magnetic Wave (CMW). Previous measurements in 200 GeV Au+Au collisions by STAR indicated a positive $\Delta v_{2}(A_{\rm ch})$ slope and, in central and peripheral collisions, a negative triangular flow $\Delta v_{3}(A_{\rm ch})$ slope. Since only backgrounds contribute to the latter, the results disfavor a pure background scenario for the $\Delta v_{2}(A_{\rm ch})$ slope.

        We show in this poster, however, that including all charged particles as reference in the Q-cumulant flow method automatically introduces a trivial linear term in $v_{n}(A_{\rm ch})$ if non-flow correlations differ between same-sign and opposite-sign particle pairs. This contributed artificial slopes to the previous $\Delta v_{n} (A_{\rm ch})$ measurements. After eliminating this non-flow artifact, the $\Delta v_{2}(A_{\rm ch})$ and $\Delta v_{3}(A_{\rm ch})$ slopes, normalized by the respective $v_{2}$ and $v_{3}$ magnitudes, are consistent with each other within errors. The present error on the $\Delta v_{3}(A_{\rm ch})$ slope is relatively large: the average normalized $\Delta v_{3}(A_{\rm ch})$ slope in $0-80\%$ centrality is about 2.2$\sigma$ above zero, and that in $20-60\%$ is about 1.5$\sigma$ above zero. The implications of our results in terms of the possible CMW signal and local charge conservation backgrounds are discussed.

        Measurement of path length-dependent $v_1$ of high-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ charged hadrons in Au+Au collisions by the STAR experiment 20m

        In heavy-ion collisions, the thermalized matter is tilted in the reaction plane as a function of rapidity, while the production profile of partons from hard scatterings is symmetric in rapidity [1]. This leads to a rapidity-odd asymmetry in the medium path length traversed by the hard partons and results in a rapidity-odd directed flow ($v_1$). Measurements of high-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ hadron $v_1$ can provide valuable constraints on the initial longitudinal distribution of the fireball as well as the path length-dependent momentum loss of the partons. A similar effect, producing significantly large directed flow for heavy flavor mesons, was predicted [2] and has been observed for $D^0$ mesons (at 3$\sigma$ significance) by STAR recently.

        In this poster, we will present the first measurement of pseudorapidity and centrality dependence of the $v_1$ of high-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ ($>$ 5 GeV/c) charged hadrons in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 54.4 and 200 GeV. The $v_1$ of charged hadrons is found to change sign twice as a function of $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ and show large negative slope at high-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$, similarly to $D^0$ mesons. The measurements will be compared to different model calculations and the sensitivity to different initial density distributions will be discussed.

        Measurement of proton-pion mixed cumulants in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 19.6, 27 and 200 GeV in STAR 20m

        Fluctuations in conserved charges such as net charge (Q), net strangeness (S) and net baryon (B) are good probes of the QCD phase transition and the critical point [1]. The QCD-based models suggest that the moments of the conserved charge distributions are related to the correlation length of the system as: $\langle (\delta N)^{2} \rangle$ $\sim$ $\xi^{2}$, $\langle (\delta N)^{3} \rangle$ $\sim$ $\xi^{4.5}$ and $\langle (\delta N)^{4} \rangle$ $\sim$ $\xi^{7}$, which are expected to take large values near the critical point [2]. As discussed in Ref [3], one can, however, remove the model dependence, by carefully constructing mixed cumulants and their ratios using the protons and pions produced in heavy-ion collisions. Five constructed ratios such as: $\kappa_{3p}\kappa_{2\pi}^{3/2}$/$\kappa_{3\pi}\kappa_{2p}^{3/2}$, $\kappa_{4p}\kappa_{2\pi}^{2}$/$\kappa_{4\pi}\kappa_{2p}^{2}$, $\kappa_{4p}^{3}\kappa_{3\pi}^{4}$/$\kappa_{4\pi}^{3}\kappa_{3p}^{4}$, $\kappa_{2p2\pi}^{2}$/$\kappa_{4\pi}\kappa_{4p}$ and $\kappa_{2p1\pi}^{3}$/$\kappa_{3p}^{2}\kappa_{3\pi}$ (where $\kappa_{ipj\pi}$ is mixed cumulant of $i^{th}$ order in proton and $j^{th}$ order in pion) are expected to become unity near the presence of the QCD critical point [3]. In this poster, we present the first results on the centrality dependence of proton-pion mixed cumulants and their ratios measured at the midrapidity region and for transverse momentum range of 0.4 $<$ $p_{T}$ $<$ 2.0 GeV/c in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 19.6, 27 and 200 GeV. Protons and pions are identified using the Time Projection Chamber and Time of Flight detectors in the STAR experiment. The collision energy, centrality and rapidity dependence of the mixed cumulants and their ratios will be shown. Physics implications of these results, as well as comparison with transport (UrQMD) model calculations, will also be presented.

        Measurement of semi-inclusive direct photon+jet and $\pi^0$+jet distributions in central Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_\mathrm{NN}}=200$ GeV by the STAR experiment 20m

        We present the semi-inclusive measurement of charged jets recoiling from direct-photon and $\pi^0$ triggers in central Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_\mathrm{NN}}=200$ GeV, using a dataset with integrated luminosity 13 nb$^{-1}$ recorded by the STAR experiment in 2014. The photon and $\pi^0$ triggers have $9<\rm E_{T}^{trig}<20$ GeV. Charged jets are reconstructed with the anti-$\rm{k_{T}}$ algorithm with resolution parameters R=0.2 and 0.5. A Mixed Event technique developed previously by STAR is used to correct the recoil jet yield for uncorrelated background, enabling recoil jet measurements over a broad $\rm p_{T,jet}$ range with large jet radius. We report the corrected semi-inclusive recoil jet yields for both triggers and compare them to those for p+p collisions. These measurements have different trigger bias, in terms of both the path-length distribution and quark/gluon mix of the recoil jet population, and their corrected recoil spectra are compared. We also report the recoil jet azimuthal distribution relative to the $\pi^0$ trigger axis, and search for medium-induced modifications. Such modifications may probe the quasi-particle nature of the Quark-Gluon Plasma and help discriminate different models of it.

        Measurement of the Azimuthal Anisotropy of Charged Particle Production in Xe+Xe Collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=5.44 TeV with the ATLAS Detector 20m

        ATLAS measurements of flow harmonics ($v_{n}$) in Xe+Xe collisions are presented. The measurements are performed using two-particle correlations, multi-particle cumulants and scalar product methods. The measurements are also performed using non-flow subtraction techniques -- recently developed for measurements in proton-nucleus and proton-proton collisions -- to improve the understanding of flow in peripheral collisions. The non-flow removal is shown to have a significant impact on the $v_n$ measurements in peripheral events. By comparing to flow measurements in Pb+Pb collisions, the effects of geometric fluctuations and of viscous effects, both of which are stronger in the smaller Xe+Xe system, are demonstrated.

        Measurement of the nuclear modification factor $R_{\rm AA}$ of inclusive J/$\psi$ at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Heavy quarks are an excellent probe to study the strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma (QGP) created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. They are mainly produced via initial hard partonic scattering processes and thus experience the entire evolution of the QGP medium. For J/$\psi$, a bound state of ${c}\bar{c}$ quarks, a strong suppression was seen in central collisions at the SPS and RHIC energies whereas at LHC energies (re-)generation is found to be the dominant production mechanism at low transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T}$) and in central collisions at midrapidity. As both suppression and (re-)generation are caused by the presence of a colored medium, J/$\psi$ yields are indeed a sensitive probe of deconfinement of the charm quarks in the QGP.

        In this poster, the nuclear modification factor of inclusive J/$\psi$ will be shown as a function of centrality and $p_{\rm T}$ at midrapidity ($|y|<0.9$) in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV. The status of the new analysis performed on data which were taken in 2018 by ALICE will be presented. This sample provides significantly increased statistics with the central and semi-central triggers compared to the previous runs, in a kinematic region down to $p_{\rm T}$=0 at midrapidity. The measurement will be compared with the previous ALICE results and model calculations. The status of the analysis aiming at disentangling prompt and non-prompt J/$\psi$ will also be discussed.

        Measurement of the sixth-order cumulant of net-proton multiplicity distributions from the STAR experiment 20m

        Cumulants of conserved quantities are the powerful tools to study the QCD phase structure. According to the Lattice Gauge Theory calculations, at vanishing baryon chemical potential ($\mu_{B}$) a "smooth crossover" for the transition from quark-gluon plasma to hadronic system occurs in heavy-ion collisions [1]. One of the possible experimental ways to search for the evidence is to analyze the higher-order cumulant ratios of net-baryon distributions from high-energy nuclear collisions. The sixth-order ($C_{6}$) to second-order ($C_{2}$) cumulant ratio of baryon number fluctuations is predicted to be negative at the freeze-out temperature if it is close to the chiral transition temperature [2]. Net-proton multiplicity distributions can be studied as a reasonable proxy for net-baryon distributions [3,4]. In this poster, we present the centrality dependence of net-proton $C_{6}/C_{2}$ at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=$ 54.4 and 200 GeV from a high statistics Au+Au collisions data set in the STAR experiment. The transverse momentum and rapidity dependence of $C_{6}/C_{2}$ for net-proton distributions will be also discussed.

        Measurements of $v_{2}$ and $v_{3}$ in p+Au, d+Au and $^{3}$He+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$ GeV from STAR 20m

        Large uncertainty for initial geometry eccentricity has been found in small systems. Calculations which include subnucleon structure have been found substantially different with standard Glauber model calculations. This will make it difficult to address the physics origin of long-range angular correlations in small systems, which may come from the initial-state momentum correlations or final-state hydrodynamic flow, or both.

        In this poster, we will present the STAR measurement of azimuthal harmonics, $v_2$ and $v_3$, in the p+Au, d+Au and $^3$He+Au data collected at 200 GeV. The non-flow contributions are studied with several different subtracted methods using p+p collision as a reference. A closure testing with the HIJING and AMPT models are also presented. The $v_2$ signals are also extracted using four-particle azimuthal correlations and compared with that from two-particle correlation after non-flow subtraction. These results will be compared to calculations from different models and provide new information to address the physics origin of long-range angular correlations. It will also be helpful for model calculation of the initial geometry, as well as to expose possible limitations to the fluid dynamical description of the matter created in these collisions.

        Measurements of charge-dependent correlations in Xe-Xe collisions with ALICE 20m

        The main goal of heavy-ion collisions is to study the deconfined phase predicted by quantum chromodynamics, the Quark Gluon Plasma.In the presence of the QGP, theories predict the existence of field configurations that could violate parity symmetry locally at a level that could be experimentally measured. In heavy-ion collisions, local parity violation manifests as charge separation along the direction of the strong magnetic field, a phenomenon called the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME). We present results on the centrality, particle separation in pseudorapidity, and transverse momentum dependence of the charge-dependent two- and three-particle correlators in Xe-Xe collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm_{NN}}} = 5.44$ TeV recorded by the ALICE detector. For the charge dependence of the three-particle correlator, often employed as evidence for the CME, we find similar values to those measured in Pb-Pb collisions and we discuss the implications of this observation.

        Measurements of charm and bottom productions via semi-leptonic decays in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=200$ GeV at STAR 20m

        Systematic investigation of charm and bottom productions and their modifications in heavy-ion collisions is crucial for understanding the parton energy loss mechanism inside the hot and dense medium. Electrons from semi-leptonic decays of open heavy-flavor hadrons can serve as a proxy for heavy quarks with the possibility of triggering on them during data taking to gain statistics.

        The STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) provides excellent track pointing resolution which allows to separate electrons originating from open charm and bottom hadron decays based on their measured Distance of Closest Approach (DCA) to the primary vertex. In this poster, we will present the nuclear modification factor $R_{AA}$ as well as $R_{CP}$ of the charm- and bottom-decayed electrons as a function of transverse momentum (2.5 < ${p}_\mathrm{T}$ < 8.5 GeV/$c$) at mid-rapidity in $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=200$ GeV Au+Au collisions for various centrality classes. The measurements will be compared to theoretical model calculations and physics implications on the parton energy loss will be discussed.

        Measurements of HBT correlations and Levy source parameters in Au+Au collisions at the STAR experiment 20m

        To study the nature of the quark-hadron phase transition, it is important to investigate the space-time structure of the hadron emission source in heavy-ion collisions. Measurements of HBT correlations have proven to be a powerful tool to gain information about the particle emission region. In this study, Levy fits were performed to the measured one-dimensional two-pion correlation functions in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=200 GeV. The three extracted parameters are: the Levy scale parameter, $R$, which is in connection with the physical size of the source, the correlation strength parameter, $\lambda$, and the Levy exponent, $\alpha$, which is related to one of the critical exponents (the correlation exponent $\eta$). It is important to investigate the dependence of these parameters on the average transverse mass, $m_T$, as well as on centrality and $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$. In this poster, we report the current status of the analysis of the extracted Levy source parameters.

The strength of the decorrelation are found to be different from that in Pb+Pb for either the same centrality or Npart. The four-particle decorrelation is found to not factorize as product of two-particle decorrelations. The ability of such measurement to distinguish between different models of initial geometry and in reducing the uncertainty in determining the effective shear-viscosity to entropy density of the QGP are demonstrated.

        Measurements of prompt D-meson production in p–Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Heavy quarks (i.e charm and beauty quarks) are effective probes to investigate the properties of the hot, dense and strongly-interacting medium, known as the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), formed in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Due to their large masses, they are produced in the initial stages of the collision via hard partonic scatterings and hence, they experience the full evolution of the medium. The measurements of prompt $\rm D$-meson production in small systems like p--Pb collisions allow us to decode the Cold Nuclear Matter (CNM) effects such as the modification of parton densities in nuclei and $k_{\rm T}$-broadening or parton energy loss. Recent studies show that the high-multiplicity events of p--Pb collisions at the LHC exhibit unforeseen collective behaviour and the origin remains unclear. For a deeper understanding on the collective-like effects in high-multiplicity p--Pb events, the study of D-meson production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity can give further insight into the interplay between hard and soft mechanisms of particle production. Furthermore, to understand the role of initial-state geometry on the final-state observables in p--Pb collisions, a more differential study can be attempted based on the technique of Event-Shape Engineering (ESE) by selecting events of different initial geometry at similar multiplicity. The modification of production cross sections of D mesons in different shape-engineered events would strengthen our understanding of influence of initial geometry on the final state particle production mechanisms.

        In this contribution, the production cross sections of D mesons (${\rm D}^{0}$, ${\rm D}^{+}$, ${\rm D}^{*+}$ and ${\rm D}_{\rm s}^{+}$) measured at mid-rapidity in p--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}= 5.02$ TeV with ALICE detector will be presented. The nuclear modification factor ($R_{\rm pPb}$) for minimum bias p--Pb collisions will be shown. The results will be compared with model predictions including CNM effects. The prompt D-meson transverse momentum distributions in p--Pb collisions relative to pp collisions ($Q_{\rm pPb}$), measured in several multiplicity/centrality classes, will also be discussed.

Key to identifying such jets is the 3-layer Monolithic-Active-Pixel-Sensor(MAPS) based vertex detector, originally developed for the ALICE ITS upgrade. The MVTX will serve as the innermost component of the sPHENIX tracking system, covering 2 cm to 4 cm radially and a pseudorapidity range of |η| < 1.1. Although it uses the same sensor elements and basic geometry, many aspects of the mechanical systems had to be adapted from the original ALICE versions.

        Medium modifications of event shape in high-energy nuclear collisions 20m

        Event shape observables, such as transverse sphericity $S_{\perp}$, have long been proposed to study geometrical properties and patterns of the energy flow, and provide a probe of multi-jet topologies in an interaction. For example, the event is pencile-like when transverse sphericity $S_{\perp}\rightarrow 0$, whereas the event is sphere-like when $S_{\perp}\rightarrow 1$. It is well-known that jet quenching in the QGP may lead to the suppression of hadron and jet spectra in heavy-ion collisions, but how jet quenching effect modifies the global geometrical proporties of jet productions in high-energy nuclear collisions is still an unexplored problem. In this talk, we show the first theoretical results of the medium modification of transverse sphericity distribution due to jet quenching effect in heavy-ion collisions. In our investigation, POWHEG+PYTHIA is employed to provide the p+p baseline up to the next-to-leading order (NLO) accuracy with rusummation by the matched parton shower. The Linear Boltzmann Transport (LBT) model of the parton energy loss is implemented to simulate the in-medium evolution of jets. We calculate the event normalized medium modification factor as a function of transverse sphericity distributions in the overall region. An enhancement at small transverse sphericity region and a suppression at large transverse sphericity region are observed in A+A collisions compared to their p+p references, which implies that the event in heavy-ion collisions becomes more pencile-like relative to that in p+p.

        We further explore the underlying reasons of the medium alteration of transverse sphericity distribution $S_{\perp}$. Our numerical results show that the parton energy loss effect on multiple jet events ($n_{jet}\geq 3$) may cause the event more pencil-like, because in this kind of process jets usually have relatively smaller energies and may fall off the jet selection kinematic cut after their energy loss in the medium. Furthermore, we plot the event normalized azimuth angle correlation factor ($\Delta \phi_{j1,j2}$) between the two leading jets for the full events both in p+p and A+A collisions. We demonstrate that jet quenching effect will enhance the fraction of events in back-to-back region ($\Delta \phi_{j1,j2}\sim \pi$) and naturally lead the full events to be more "jetty". Therefore, even though medium-induced gluon radiation may lead to a more isotropic event, the disappearing of less energetic jets and the enhanced fraction of back-to-back ($\Delta \phi_{j1,j2}\sim \pi$) reaction are more pronounced and thus give rise to an overall more pencil-like event in high-energy nuclear collisions with respect to that in p+p.

        Meson masses in external magnetic fields from Lattice QCD 20m

        We will present the first study in full QCD on meson temporal correlation functions in the presence of external magnetic fields at zero temperature. The simulations of (2+1)-flavor QCD were performed on 32$^3$x96 lattices using the Highly Improved Staggered Quarks (HISQ) action with $m_{\pi}$ around 230 MeV. The strength of magnetic fields is up to 3 GeV$^2$.

        We found that the masses of neutral pseudo-scalars monotonically decrease as the magnetic field grows and then saturate at a nonzero value. It is observed that heavier neutral pseudo-scalars are less affected by magnetic fields. While the masses of charged pion and kaon show a non-monotonic behavior in magnetic field, which is different from all the previous studies from quenched QCD. In the case of small magnetic field (0 $\leq~|eB|\le$ 0.3 GeV$^2$ ) the mass of charged pseudo-scalar grows with magnetic field and can be well described by the Lowest Landau Level approximation, while for eB larger than 0.3 GeV$^2$ the mass starts to decrease.

        We will discuss the possible connection between eB dependences of mesons in pseudo-scalar channels and the decreasing behavior of pseudo-critical temperature in magnetic field. We will also discuss the possibility of superconductivity of QCD induced by strong magnetic field through the study on eB dependence of meson masses in the vector channel.

        Multi-harmonic correlations in ALICE 20m

        Genuine multiparticle azimuthal correlations have been used in anisotropic flow analyses to study the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) produced in ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions. A recently introduced set of observables, based on the measurements of the correlated fluctuations of two different flow harmonics, has allowed the application of new constraints on the properties of the QGP. These two-harmonic observables have been named the Symmetric Cumulants.

        The generalisation of Symmetric Cumulants has been proposed very recently. The new set of observables is sensitive only to the genuine correlations between three or more flow harmonics and has been dubbed higher order Symmetric Cumulants. They provide information which is inaccessible through individual flow harmonics or correlated fluctuations of only two flow harmonics, and in turn yields additional and independent constraints on the properties of the system produced in heavy-ion collisions.

        In this poster, we present the first experimental results for these multi-harmonic correlations in the Pb-Pb collisions collected by ALICE. In particular, the centrality dependence of higher order Symmetric Cumulants involving three or more different flow harmonics is presented. The comparison with predictions from state-of-the-art hydrodynamic models is shown as well.

        Multiparticle correlations from the direct calculation of cumulants using particle azimuthal angles 20m

        Instead of using the generating function or Q-cumulant methods for multiparticle correlation studies in heavy ion collisions, we calculate the cumulants directly looping over particle azimuthal angles. It is shown that this method is not possible for central and mid-central AA collisions due to the required computing resource, but possible for smaller collision systems and peripheral AA collisions. With this method we are able to study the correlations as a function of particle pseudorapidity gap between each particle in the multiparticle correlations. The method is tested with PYTHIA and HIJING models and it provides better statistical precision than the three subevent method with a pseudorapidity gap using the same amount of data.

        Multiplicity and $\sqrt{s}$ dependent study of jet properties in pp collisions at LHC energies 20m

        Jets are collimated bunches of hadrons produced from fragmentation and hadronization of hard scattered partons (quarks and gluons) in high energy collisions. Due to the different color charges of quarks and gluons, differences in the fragmentation of the two types of partons are expected. Therefore jets originated from primary quarks and gluons, are predicted to have different properties. Experimental measurements of inclusive jets have contributions from both types of partons. The partonic fraction in the inclusive jets is expected to be reflected in their properties. The gluonic contribution increases with increasing $\sqrt{s}$ due to an increase in gluon density inside the hadron. The gluonic contribution is argued to vary with event multiplicity as well. Jet properties are therefore expected to depend on $\sqrt{s}$ and event multiplicity. In this work, we will present a detailed study to estimate the change in the inclusive jet properties as a function of $\sqrt{s}$ and event multiplicity for pp collisions using Monte Carlo simulations at LHC energies.

        Multiplicity and rapidity dependence of v2 in small system by using two-particle correlations 20m

        Recent PHENIX measurements indicate that the initial geometry is the cause of the observed positive $v_2$ and $v_3$ in high-multiplicity p+Au, d+Au, and $^3$He+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 200$~GeV. These results were obtained using the event-plane method, with the event plane determined in the backward rapidity range and correlated with particles in other sub-events at mid- and forward-rapidity. In this poster, we present the latest PHENIX measurements, in which we employ the two-particle correlation method and investigate the effects of the size of the rapidity gap between particles as well as different non-flow subtraction methods in order to understand possible non-flow contributions to the observed $v_2$. We also extend the measurements of $v_2$ from most-central to peripheral collisions to understand the centrality evolution of $v_2$ in small systems. In this poster, we will present the current analysis status of $v_2$ measurement via the two particle correlation analysis with various subtraction methods in a wide centrality range of p+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 200$~GeV.

        Multiplicity dependent charged jet production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV 20m

        A jet is a spray of collimated hadrons originated in the fragmentation of an energetic parton. The cross section measurement provides a good test for pQCD calculations. Jet $p_{\rm T}$ spectrum measurement in pp collisions sets a reference for jet quenching study in nucleus-nucleus collisions. In addition, high multiplicity pp collisions show similar collective behavior as found in heavy-ion collisions with comparable event activities, such as long-range correlations or the $v_{n}$ coefficients. In pp collisions, these effects may be caused by multiple-parton interactions or other QCD effects, therefore, the measurements in different multiplicity intervals will provide insights to understand the properties of small interacting system.

        In this contribution, we will present charged jet cross section measurement in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV with the high statistics collected by ALICE. The jet cross section ratio for various jet resolution parameters will be also shown. Such kind of cross section ratio is sensitive to the transverse energy profile of the jets. In particular, we will present the charged particle jet production in different multiplicity intervals, which will provide important input for understanding the correlations between the hard process and event activities in small colliding systems.

        Multiplicity scaling in the small system within the non-extensive statistical approach 20m

        The non-extensive statistical description of the identified final state particles measured in high energy collisions is well-known by it's wide range of applicability. However, there are many open questions that need to be answered, including but not limited to the question of the observed mass scaling of massive hadrons or the size and multiplicity dependence of the model parameters. This latter is especially relevant, since currently the amount of the available experimental data with high multiplicity at small systems is very limited.

        In this contribution the role of the size of the colliding system and multiplicity dependence of the parameters in the non-extensive hadronization model is investigated with HIJING++ calculations. We present cross-check comparisons of HIJING++ with existing experimental data to verify it's validity in our range-of-interest, as well as calculations at high-multiplicity regions where we have insufficient experimental data.

        Multiplicity-dependent jet shape analysis in pp collisions at $\sqrt{\textit{s}}$ = 13 TeV with ALICE 20m

        High-multiplicity pp collisions show similar collective behavior as found in heavy-ion collisions with comparable event multiplicity, such as long-range near-side correlations and the $v_n$ coefficients. In pp collisions, these effects may be caused by multiple-parton interactions or other vacuum QCD effects. Investigating the modification of the jet shape in terms of the event multiplicity can provide us with deeper insights on the nature of these effects.

        In this contribution, we report on the latest results concerning the jet-shape measurements of the jet radial profile and first radial moment (or girth) and their multiplicity dependence in pp collisions at $\sqrt{\textit{s}}$ = 13 TeV with ALICE. The jet radial profile describes the energy distribution inside the jet cone while the first radial moment provides complementary information on the jet fragmentation properties. Multiplicity-differential measurements provide important input to understand the interplay between jet fragmentation and event multiplicity in small colliding systems.

        Net-charge fluctuations in pp, p-Pb, Pb-Pb and Xe-Xe collisions with ALICE Detector 20m

Data from various collision systems provide an opportunity to study the dependence of $\nu_{[+-,dyn]}$ on the system size. The effect of the kinematic acceptance has also been looked into by plotting the $\nu_{[+-,dyn]}$ against the collision centrality in various p$_{T}$ windows. In order to check whether the net charge fluctuations are influenced by the decay of hadronic resonances, experimental findings are compared with the Monte Carlo model HIJING. Moreover, the presence of collectivity has also been examined by analysing the AMPT data sets from the two modes of the model$-$with string melting and rescattering, as well as the EPOS model tuned for the LHC physics.

        Net-lambda fluctuations in Pb-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV in ALICE at the LHC 20m

        One of the fundamental goals of heavy-ion collision experiment is to map out the temperature $(T_{f})$ and baryon chemical potential $(\mu_{B}^f)$ of the Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) phase diagram at which chemical freeze-out occurs - a point on the phase diagram when the chemical composition of the system is fixed. The cumulants of conserved quantities (net-charge, net-baryon number, net-strangeness) are directly related to the quark number susceptibilities calculated with lattice QCD. In a fluctuation analysis, net-pion, net-proton, and net-kaon are typically used as proxies for net-charge, net-baryon, and net-strangeness respectively. The $\Lambda$-particle consists of a strange quark and it is as well a baryon. Hence, measuring the cumulants of net-$\Lambda$ distributions provides insight into the fluctuations of net-strangeness and net-baryon number.
        In addition, the ratios of net-$\Lambda$ cumulants that are used to estimate freeze-out parameters can be compared to the ones extracted using net-proton to identify the signature of a flavor hierarchy, that is, if heavier quarks may freezeout at a different $(T_{f})$ and $(\mu_{B}^f)$ from lighter quarks.
        In this poster, we will present the measurement of the first and second order cumulants of net-$\Lambda$ distributions in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 5.02 TeV using the ALICE detector.

        Net-proton number fluctuations in partial chemical equilibrium 20m

        We calculate the first four cumulants of the net-proton number distribution in partial chemical equilibrium (PCE). Such results serve as a necessary baseline for the identification of any critical phenomena in the collision energy dependence of the cumulants. The PCE scenario is relevant for scenarios of the nuclear collisions where chemical freeze-out coincides with hadronisation, but the fireball cools down further until kinetic freeze-out is reached. As a consequence, each stable hadronic species acquires its own chemical potential which depends on the temperature. Since proton number is not a conserved quantity, it may additionally fluctuate due to random nature of the resonance decays. We calculate the first four cumulants of the net-proton number distribution as functions of temperature for different chemical freeze-outs, which correspond to different collision energies. Interestingly, their temperature dependence is rather flat. Hence, this proves that the results obtained for the cumulants at the chemical freeze-out can still be regarded as relevant.

        The Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR) enables the possibility of exploring the properties of strongly interacting nuclear matter using the method of femtoscopy. By studying the quantum statistical effects and final state interactions between two particles, one can extract emission source parameters, which is used to describe geometrical and dynamical properties of the homogeneity region. We use the high statistics data of Au+Au collisions recorded by the STAR experiment to study the correlations between strange particles. The lightest strange particles are kaons. Kaons are less affected by resonances decays and provide a cleaner signal of two-particle correlations. Neutral kaons, $K_S^0$, can be measured through their decay products to the pair of charged pions.

        The sPHENIX detector at BNL’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) will enable a spectrum of new or improved cold QCD measurements, enhancing our understanding of the initial state for nuclear collisions. With its excellent tracking and full calorimetry (hadronic and electromagnetic) in the central pseudo-rapidity region, sPHENIX provides excellent opportunities for the studies of the partonic structure and dynamics in nucleons and nuclei. This includes the studies of the polarized structure of the proton utilizing RHIC's polarized proton collisions. With enhanced RHIC luminosity anticipated in 2020+, and sPHENIX high rate capabilities, the expected precisions will far exceed that achieved at RHIC by now. Among such measurements are high precision polarized gluon distribution in the proton utilizing jet, hadron and direct photon probes, gluon dynamics studies in protons and nuclei through twist-3 correlation functions with heavy flavor measurements, and studies beyond the collinear distributions involving intrinsic transverse momentum kT and fragmentation transverse momentum jT through the correlation measurements. A potential upgrade to sPHENIX with forward instrumentation could significantly enhance these physics capabilities, expanding the probed kinematic range to lower and higher parton momentum fraction x. Nuclear parton distributions will be constrained from direct photon and Drell-Yan electron-positron pair measurements. A unique opportunity to study nuclear effects with polarized probes will be utilized through the high precision measurements of transverse spin asymmetry in hadron production in p+p versus p+A collisions over a wide kinematic range. These and other Cold QCD physics measurements for the proposed sPHENIX midrapidity detector as well as the enhanced program enabled with forward upgrades will be presented.

        Non-Gaussian sources and the shape of the correlation function 20m

        Correlation femtoscopy is a standard technique for the experimental analysis of ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions. The measured two-particle correlation function is clearly non-Gaussian, and so it is often better reproduced by Levy stable distribution than a Gaussian one. It has been suggested that a particular shape of a Levy-stable distribution may help to identify the QCD critical endpoint. In order to set up a baseline for this statement, we show that there are non-critical effects that may influence its shape as well. By making use of two independent models (hydrodynamical simulation and a blast wave parametrisation) we estimate how much the individual effects modify the shape. We show that the Levy index may deviate considerably from 2 due to effects such as non-spherical shape, resonance decays, event-by-event fluctuations and functional dependence on $q_{inv}$ and/or $q_{lcms}$.

        Non-prompt $\rm D^{0}$-meson production in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        Heavy-flavor quarks (charm and beauty) play an important role in probing the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in the heavy-ion collisions. Due to their heavy masses, charm and beauty quarks are formed in hard scattering processes on a timescale shorter than the QGP formation time. Therefore, they experience all the phases of the medium evolution interacting with the medium constituents and losing energy via collisional and radiative processes. In particular, the mass difference between beauty and charm quarks provides an ideal tool to investigate the predicted mass dependence of parton in-medium energy loss. On this regard, the study of non-prompt $\rm D^0$-meson production in Pb-Pb collisions provides an indirect measurement of beauty quark production, while the same study in pp collisions, beside providing the needed reference for Pb-Pb studies, is an excellent tool to investigate perturbative Quantum ChromoDynamics (pQCD) calculations.

        This poster will show the production cross section of non-prompt $\rm D^0$ mesons (b→c→$\rm D^0$) at mid-rapidity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 5.02 TeV. In addition, the latest updates on non-prompt D0 meson production in Pb-Pb at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV will be discussed.

        Non-static properties of the chiral magnetic conductivity 20m

        In this talk we investigate the response of the medium of chiral fermions to time and space dependent external electromagnetic fields and chiral imbalance. The axial-vector--vector--vector (AVV) three-point function is studied in a real-time approach at finite temperature in the linear response approximation.
        The different orders of limits lead to different results as the external fields reach to the constant configuration in both space and time. We classify these different scenarios, involving the well-known case dictated by the chiral anomaly and even the case of vanishing chiral magnetic conductivity. The physical interpretation of these different scenarios is discussed through the anomalous conservation of the chiral charge. The result emphasizes the importance of whether or not the assumption of thermal equilibrium is justified for a system with chiral imbalance.
        Two non-static examples are discussed in details: we analyze the AVV response function for i.) arbitrary space-time dependent chiral chemical potential when the magnetic field is constant and ii.) for arbitrary magnetic field with constant chiral imbalance. In the non-interacting limit the response function can be given even analytically, revealing a relatively simple form in both cases.
        We also discuss the phenomenological implications on the electric charge polarization in a high-energy nuclear collision scenario. The effects of quenches and inhomogeneities of the chiral charge are especially explored, assuming the majority of the chiral charge is of QCD origin and that its generation can be described by a stochastic process.

        Non-zero chiral and isospin imbalance in QCD phase diagram: dualities in effective models and lattice QCD 20m

        in this talk there will be discussed the phase structure of the dense quark matter with isospin and chiral imbalances has been investigated in the framework of effective models and lattice QCD. It has been shown that in the large-N$_c$ limit (N$_c$ is the number of colours of quarks) there exist duality correspondences, which are the symmetries of the thermodynamic potential and the phase structure itself. The first one is a duality between the chiral symmetry breaking (CSB) and the charged pion condensation (PC) phenomena. The dualities were shown to exist in the matter with chiral imbalance that can be produced in compact stars or heavy ion collisions. One of the key conclusions of these studies is the fact that chiral imbalance generates charged PC in dense baryonic/quark matter even in the case of charge neutral matter, which is interesting in the context of neutron stars. It was also shown that the duality can be observed in lattice QCD. Moreover, they were used for prediction of catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking by chiral imbalance. It is known that chiral imbalance can occur due to temperature and sphaleron transitions. Our studies show that chiral imbalance can occur in the cores of neutron stars or in heavy ion collisions at NICA, FAIR, where large baryon densities can be reached, due to other phenomena the so-called chiral separation and chiral vortical effects. Even if the phase diagram contains phases with inhomogeneous condensates, it still possesses the duality. Just by the duality we obtained, in the inhomogeneous case, without any calculations, a full phase diagram of chirally asymmetric dense quark matter. This shows that the duality is an instrument of high predictivity power. The obtained phase diagram is quite rich and contains various spatially inhomogeneous phases.

        Nuclear dependence of transverse single-spin asymmetry of charged hadrons in polarized p+p, p+Al and p+Au collisions in PHENIX 20m

        that they can be sensitive to the nuclear size (or mass number A) and the

        Nuclear modification of jet shape for inclusive jets and γ-jets at the LHC energies 20m

        With our coupled jet-fluid model, we study the nuclear modifications of full jets and jet structures for single inclusive jets and $\gamma$-jets in Pb+Pb collisions at $5.02$ ATeV and $2.76$ ATeV. The in-medium evolution of full jet shower is described by a set of coupled transport equations including the effects of collisional energy loss, transverse momentum broadening and medium-induced splitting process. The dynamical evolution of bulk medium is simulated by solving relativistic hydrodynamic equation with source term which accounts for the energy and momentum deposited by hard jet shower to soft medium. Our study demonstrates that the hydrodynamic medium response to jet propagation significantly enhances the broadening of jet shape at large angles and is essential for the cone-size dependence of jet energy loss and nuclear modification factor of inclusive jet production. It is also found that the nuclear modification pattern of jet shape is sensitive to jet energy but has weak dependence on the flavor of the parton that initiates the jet.

        The positive elliptic flow ($v_{2}$) of open heavy-flavour particles observed in semi-central Pb--Pb collisions at LHC energies indicates that heavy quarks suffered strong interactions in the deconfined QCD medium and participated in the collective motion of the medium. Recent observations in high-multiplicity pp and p--Pb collisions show remarkable similarities with Pb-Pb collisions and suggest the presence of collectivity, whose origin is still debated.

        Parametrized equation of state with critical point and first-order phase transition 20m

        At low temperature and low density, the chiral symmetry is broken dynamically to form hadronic phase. While, at high temperature and/or high density, this symmetry is restored and consequently the quark gluon plasma (QGP) appears. In the QCD phase diagram with temperature $T$ and baryon chemical potential $\mu_B$, it is established from first-principle calculations that the transition from hadronic matter to the QGP is crossover at $\mu_B = 0$. On the other hand, in the finite density region ($\mu_B > 0$), the equation of state is still unknown due to the difficulty in the first-principle calculations, namely, the sign problem. Nevertheless, some effective models predict the existence of a critical point connected with a first-order phase transition line [1]. The precise position of the point is still unknown.
        In this study, we construct a model of the equation of state in the entire phase space with a critical point which is connected with a first-order phase transition line by smoothly connecting several equations of state. By making use of the fact that the critical phenomena of QCD and the 3D Ising model belong to the same universality class [2], we construct an equation of state near the critical point [3]. The bag model is used in the high temperature and high density region, the lattice QCD calculation in the high temperature and low density region, the hadron resonance gas model with mean field potential in the low temperature and low density region, and the three-dimensional Ising model near the critical point. The model is designed to place the critical point at any position in the QCD phase diagram so that one can utilize it in the hydrodynamic model of nuclear collisions for critical point search. We discuss the relationship between the position of the critical point and the collision energy using the constructed equation of state.

        Passive Gating Grid Studies for a Time Projection Chamber 20m

        A Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is a good candidate as the main tracking device for many experiments.
        A TPC measures space points of charged tracks, which provide momentum resolution and particle identification for a variety of measurements.
        In high multiplicity environments a TPC has to cope with the build-up of space charge in the drift volume which is created by two major effects; primary ionization and Ion Back Flow (IBF) from an amplification device.
        Primary ionization is inevitable and one concentrates on combating IBF. Traditionally, this is accomplished with a temporarily powered gating grid which absorbs all charge carriers. However, this limits the operation of a TPC to very limited readout rates. To overcome this limit micropattern gas detectors (MPGD) will be implemented in future TPCs. MPGDs are inherently capable to reduce IBF yet not at an optimum level. A passive or statically powered gating grid might optimize the IBF reduction.
        We have simulated woven wire meshes, different patterns of etched meshes, hexagonal micropattern meshes and static bi-polar wire gating grids. We have studied several options to achieve good electron transparency for the primary electrons and high blocking for the ions coming from the amplification stage. In this presentation, we will discuss the results and provide conclusions for overcoming IBF.

        Performance evaluation of a Forward Calorimeter for the ALICE upgrade 20m

        The measurement of direct photons at forward rapidity in high-energy proton-nucleus collisions is a key to investigate the high-density parton distribution functions and to understand the initial state of nuclear collisions. Gluon distributions at very small x (below 10$^{-4}$) may reach saturation of the phase space. The Color Glass Condensate is a theoretical framework that describes the coherent dynamics of this saturated regime of QCD.

        In order to enable the separation of direct photons from the decay photons, a high-granularity-readout electromagnetic calorimeter (FoCal-E) in the forward rapidity region (3.5 $<$ $\eta$ $<$ 5.3) has been proposed in the ALICE experiment at LHC. FoCal-E consists of 20 layers of tungsten absorber plates, interleaved with two types of active silicon layers, low granularity readout layers (LGL) with silicon pads and high-granularity readout layers (HGL) with Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors.
        We have constructed a prototype calorimeter consisting of 20 alternating layers of tungsten and LGL pads. The performance of this prototype was evaluated with positron and hadron beams at CERN PS and SPS in 2018. The results of these testbeam measurements will be reported. This performance evaluation is crucial to determine the final design of FoCal-E.

        Performance evaluation of sensor module for INTT at sPHENIX 20m

        sPHENIX is a new heavy ion experiment at RHIC and aims to study the microscopic structure of quark-gluon plasma by measuring the Jet modification with different flavors and the possible different suppressions of Upsilons.
        Intermediate silicon strip tracker (INTT) is one of the tracking detectors sandwiched between the inner silicon pixel tracker (MVTX) and the outer TPC. INTT consists of two layers of the barrel detector and covers $|y| < 1.1$ and full azimuth. INTT provides hits information for each beam crossing. This enables to separate the event from multiply overlapped events, and to confirm tracks measured by MVTX and TPC.
        INTT ladder is composed of a silicon strip sensor, read-out chips (FPHX), high-density interconnect (HDI) and a carbon fiber (high thermal conductive) stave. The second prototype of ladder was produced to check their performance. We first checked the functionality and ADC response by measuring the test pulse and cosmic ray using the test bench at Nara Women's University. Secondary, the test beam experiment was performed with 120 GeV proton at FNAL during the summer 2019 to measure the detection efficiency and charge distribution of MIP. At the test beam, three ladders were arranged side by side to form a telescope, and the efficiency was evaluated by counting the number of tracks passing through all three ladders.
        In this presentation, we report the current status of the ladder development, and the on-going data analysis for the detection efficiency and charge distribution of MIP.

        Performance of the MPD detector for the study of multi-strange baryon production in heavy-ion collisions at NICA 20m

        Heavy-ion collisions at NICA are well suitable to investigate fundamental problem of strongly interacting matter such as its EOS, bulk properties, state of QCD vacuum, and criticality.
        The production of (anti)hyperons is sensitive to the early stage of the collision, thus the degree of partonic collectivity can be tested by means of multi-strange baryon yields, spectra, and anisotropic flow coefficients. Moreover, the difference in production rates as well as in azimuthal anisotropy between hyperons and antihyperons could depend on the baryon density and EOS in the hadronic stage of the medium. Hence, multi-strange baryons can be a valuable probe to test multiple stages of the evolution of a heavy-ion collision.
        The MPD detector is a spectrometer with a large uniform acceptance capable of detecting and identifying hadrons, electrons and gammas at the very high event rate achieved at NICA. Event reconstruction in MPD is expected to provide a high accuracy in collision centrality and event plane determination, as well as a good performance in secondary vertex finding.
        We present the performance of the MPD detector for reconstruction of strange and multi-strange baryons (Lambda, Xi, Omega and their antiparticles) in heavy-ion collisions. The results, which are obtained from the full MPD simulation and reconstruction chain, include the yields, spectra, and anisotropy coefficients for (anti)hyperons from centrality selected Au+Au collisions. The estimates for the particle rates during first period of data taking at NICA and the accuracy, which can be achieved in multi-strange baryon measurements, will be given.

        Performance studies of scintillator tiles for the sPHENIX hadronic calorimeter 20m

        The sPHENIX detector at BNL’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) will begin taking data in 2023, providing detailed measurements of jets and Upsilons in 200 GeV Au+Au collisions. To make precision jet energy measurements, sPHENIX will be equipped with a Hadronic Calorimeter (HCal) located outside a 1.4T superconducting solenoidal magnet. The HCal is composed of 7,680 plastic scintillating tiles sandwiched between layers of steel absorber plates. Light produced by particles striking the tile is captured by a wavelength shifting fiber that routes the light to Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) at one end of the tile. The geometry of the mid-rapidity calorimeter is novel, tilted in azimuth such that particles coming from the interaction region traverse a number of scintillating tiles. The scintillator tiles come in different shapes based on their location in pseudorapidity. Tiles of the same shape are grouped together azimuthally in sets of five forming a “tower,” and the readout from a tower is the aggregate of the signals of each tile within a tower. Results of beam tests carried out at Fermilab have shown that the detector has the required energy resolution to accomplish sPHENIX’s physics goals; additionally, in order to optimize the performance of the calorimeter, towers will be constructed out of tiles with similar behavior. Testing has begun at Georgia State University to characterize the performance of each individual tile relative to a baseline reference by analyzing their response to cosmic rays. This poster will detail the design of the test setup, the analysis procedure, and the current results of the performance characterization studies of the sPHENIX HCal tiles.

        Phase transitions and transport in dense nuclear matter from relativistic density functional theory 20m

        The equation of state of dense nuclear matter, while central in simulations of QCD systems under extreme conditions, is currently inaccessible to first principles calculations. Using relativistic density functional theory, we model the thermodynamics and single-particle equations of motion of nuclear matter over a broad range of temperatures and densities encompassing nuclei, neutron stars, neutron star mergers, and relativistic heavy ion collisions. We obtain a flexible and thermodynamically consistent framework to parameterize the known properties of ordinary nuclear matter and postulate a family of equations of state compatible with the QCD phase transition. Eventually, these equations of state will be constrained by comparison with experimental data. As a first step, we implement the corresponding relativistically covariant single-particle equations of motion within a hadronic transport model and investigate the behavior of dense nuclear matter close to the phase transition.

        PHENIX measurements of Bottom and Charm in A+A collisions 20m

        The study of energy loss of quarks in the hot and dense medium has been performed for decades. Both the experimental and theoretical efforts hinted that the energy loss is quark mass dependent (the yield of heavier quarks will be less suppressed). It was found that the electrons from heavy quarks (charm, and bottom) are less or similarly suppressed compared to that of light hadrons. However, the mass ordering of the suppression between charm and bottom was not clear by now due to a large uncertainty in the measurement. We have fully exploited the events recorded at PHENIX from Au+Au collisions in the 2014 RHIC run. Combined with the new charm and bottom $p_{T}$ spectra from p+p collisions from the 2015 RHIC run, we can obtain the new $R_{AA}$ for charm and bottom quarks with smaller uncertainties. We will show the latest results on $p_{T}$ spectra and $R_{AA}$ of charm and bottom quarks separately, and discuss the quark mass dependence of the energy loss

        PHENIX probing forward/small-x dynamics from hadron production 20m

        A better understanding of parton dynamics in the nucleus, in particular in the small-x region, is extremely important as it is needed to understand the nature of recently observed and unexpected phenomena like particle anisotropies in small collision systems. PHENIX can explore the small and large-x regions in the nucleus through measurements in the muon arms and forward vertex trackers. These detectors cover the forward ($1.2<\eta<2.2$) and backward ($-2.2<\eta<-1.2$) rapidity range, which in p+Au collisions at 200 GeV gives access to an average x$\sim$0.005 and x$\sim$0.1, respectively. In this talk PHENIX present new results, including on charged hadrons, muon pairs from bottom decays, and Drell-Yan muon pairs. The ratio of p+Au to p+p data reveals interesting patterns of suppression and enhancement in the p+Au data. When comparing the results to pQCD calculations using nuclear parton distribution functions, reasonable agreement is found only over part of the accessible kinematic range, indicating the possible presence of other nuclear effects.

        PHENIX results on $J/\psi$ polarization in p+p collisions 20m

        One of the big puzzles in quarkonia production is how heavy-quark pairs, produced in the initial hard process, hadronize into final quarkonia states. This uncertainty affects the estimation of quarkonia breakup cross sections and color screening in heavy ion collisions. According to Non-Relativistic Quantum Chromodynamics, quarkonia are formed from several intermediate singlet and color octet states. The relative fraction of each contribution can only be determined by experimental data, including yields and angular decay (polarization) measurements in a broad kinematic region. The PHENIX experiment has measured inclusive J/psi polar and azimuthal angular decay coefficients in the mid ($|y|<0.35$) and forward ($1.2<|y|<2.2$) rapidity regions in $p$+$p$ collisions at 200 GeV and 510 GeV. We find that the polarization coefficients are consistent with zero at mid-rapidity and negative at large rapidity. This talk will present the analysis strategy as well as the results in different angles/frames. We will discuss how the results can be explained in terms of singlet and color octet states.

        Phenomenological formulation of relativistic spin hydrodynamics 20m

        Recently, there have been significant experimental progresses in observing and/or controlling spin-dependent bulk quantities in broad areas in physics, e.g., relativistic heavy-ion collisions, spintronics. Although hydrodynamics is one of the most powerful theoretical frameworks to describe bulk quantities, its extension to a spinful fluid has not been developed well, especially for relativistic systems.

        In this presentation, we formulate relativistic spin hydrodynamics with first-order dissipative corrections for the first time [1]. Our formulation is based on the phenomenological entropy-current analysis, in which the first and second laws of thermodynamics are utilized to constrain constitutive relations. We also clarify that spin should be a non-hydrodynamic (diffusive) mode by explicitly solving the obtained hydrodynamic equations within the linear-mode analysis on top of a global thermal equilibrium configuration. This diffusive behavior is a consequence of the mutual convertibility between spin and orbital angular momentum.

        Photon identification in the ALICE EMCal using a neural network and template fit 20m

        Photon identification in the ALICE EMCal using a neural network and template fit
        Alwina Liu for the ALICE collaboration

        The measurement of isolated photon-tagged correlations of jets and jet fragments is a promising channel for the study of partonic energy loss in heavy-ion collisions. Isolated photons are an excellent probe because they constrain the parton kinematics of the initial hard scattering. For prompt photon measurements, the main background are photons from the decays of neutral mesons. Photons are measured in the ALICE electromagnetic calorimeter (EMCal) and reconstructed as EMCal clusters. Higher-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ neutral mesons decay into photons with a small opening angle, which can produce a single cluster with both photons when the photon showers overlap; this starts to happen for neutral pions at around 6 GeV/$c$, for example. A deep neural network is trained to distinguish between clusters containing one or two photons. Thus the energy distribution in the cluster (the ``shower shape'') can be encoded with the output of this deep neural network as well as with a geometric variable. The shower shape distribution of isolated clusters in the data can then be fit to two templates. The purity can then be extracted from the result of the template fit and is used in the isolated photon correlation measurements. This poster will present the details and results of calculating the photon purity with a template fit procedure using both the deep neural network and the geometric variable in multiple collision systems. The photons are measured in a $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ range (12--60 GeV/$c$) that provides access to a regime in which the largest modifications due to the QGP are expected and which is thus far unexplored. However, this $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ range is technically challenging due to the large number of neutral mesons produced relative to prompt photons.

        Photons associated with jets in p-p and A-A collisions 20m

        Jet modification is now understood to be a multistage effect: a parton produced in a high virtuality initial state, radiates a multitude of partons, giving way to a variety of lower virtuality stages. In the lower virtuality stage, higher energy partons are weakly coupled with the medium and continue to scatter and radiate whereas lower energy partons are strongly coupled with the medium and will eventually thermalize. Hadrons produced in the fragmentation from these partons are clustered within jets. Modeling of these multistage effects involves several parameters: The coupling in the medium, the scales where the shower transitions from one stage to the next, and the parameters of hadronization.

        We consider a set of these parameters which have been tuned to successfully describe a variety of jet based data, such as the nuclear modification factors of leading hadrons and jets, the intra-jet fragmentation function and the jet shape, and subject this model to a parameter free validation by calculating the photon production from these in-medium jets. Quarks inside jets can radiate photons along with gluons. Photons are also produced in the hard scattering, via the quark-gluon Compton scattering process. In this work, we study the correlation of photons with jets in p-p and A-A collisions. Photon radiation from the hard scattering, from both the large and small virtuality phases, along with radiation from a PYTHIA based hadronization model are included in this analysis. We focus on the photon jet transverse momentum and angular balance. The calculations of photon production from each stage are calculated in close analogy to gluon radiation, with the exact same approximations, i.e., no new parameters are introduced or tuned either in the p-p or A-A collisions. The level of agreement with experimental data provides an independent verification of the multi-stage theory of jet modification.

        Physics performance studies for anisotropic flow measurements with the CBM experiment at FAIR 20m

        The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) at FAIR aims to study the area of the QCD phase diagram at high net baryon densities and moderate temperatures using collisions of heavy ions at center-of-mass energies of a few GeV per nucleon. Anisotropic transverse flow is among the key observables to study the properties of matter created in such collisions.

        The CBM performance for anisotropic flow measurements is studied with Monte-Carlo simulations using gold ions at SIS-100 energies with lab momentum up to 12A GeV/c employing different heavy-ion event generators. Various combinations of CBM detector subsystems are used to investigate the possible systematic biases in flow measurement and to study the effects of detector azimuthal non-uniformity. The resulting performance of CBM for flow measurements is demonstrated for different harmonics of identified charged hadron anisotropic flow as a function of rapidity and transverse momentum in different centrality classes.

        Pion, kaon and (anti-)proton production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at the highest LHC energies with ALICE 20m

        In ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions a new state of matter where quarks and gluons are not confined into hadrons, the Quark-Gloun Plasma (QGP), is created. The ALICE experiment at the LHC is dedicated to the study of the properties of the QGP. In addition, proton-proton collisions are used as the high energy QCD reference while the study of proton-nucleus collisions provides a fundamental benchmark for the initial state and cold nuclear matter effects. In recent years the multiplicity-dependent results on particle production in pp and p--Pb collisions allowed the discovery of collective–like behavior in small systems at LHC energies. Exploiting its optimal particle identification capabilities, the ALICE experiment is able to measure pion, kaon and (anti-)proton transverse momentum spectra from hundreds of MeV/$c$ up to 20 GeV/$c$. Measurements of the production of pions, kaons and (anti-)protons in pp, p--Pb and Pb--Pb collisions at the highest center of mass energies provided during the LHC Run 2 data taking period, are reported. Results are presented as a function of the collision centrality or multiplicity and include transverse momentum spectra, particle ratios, integrated yields and nuclear modification factors. In addition, particle abundances are discussed in the context of underlying event. Finally, an extensive comparison to statistical hadronization and hydrodynamic model predictions is presented.

        Polarization transfer in hyperon decays and its effect in relativistic nuclear collisions 20m

        We study the contribution to the polarization of $\Lambda$ hyperons in relativistic nuclear collisions at high energy from the decays of $\Sigma^*(1385)$ and $\Sigma^0$, which are the predominant sources of $\Lambda$ production besides the primary component, as a function of the $\Lambda$ momentum. Particularly, we determine the longitudinal component of the mean spin vector as a function of the azimuthal angle and show that it has a very similar pattern to the primary one, if primary $\Sigma^*$ and $\Sigma^0$ polarization follow the predictions of local thermodynamic equilibrium in a relativistic fluid. Therefore, we conclude that the secondary decays cannot account for the discrepancy between experimental data and hydrodynamic model predictions of the longitudinal polarization of $\Lambda$ hyperons recently measured by the STAR experiment at RHIC.

        Possible observation of parton energy loss in pp collisions with Pythia 20m

        We study the evolution of jetty and underlying parts of the transverse momentum spectra as a function of multiplicity in pp 13 TeV collisions at midrapidity (|eta|<0.8) using pythia8 event generator. We observe that beyond a multiplicity of dN/deta ~ 40 the maximum reachable leading transverse momentum gets smaller and at the same time the slope of the spectra both in the jetty and underlying parts show a continuous rise. At high multiplicity (>70) a rise in pT spectra at very low momenta (~ 1GeV/c) is also observed. We interpret this as a possible loss of the momentum at a certain particle/energy density in pp collisions.

        The similarity in the behavior of transverse momentum spectra in Pb-Pb and pp collisions (shown in arXiv:1805.04572v2) indicate that the same mechanism could be responsible for the parton energy loss in heavy ions collisions. Although the behaviour of the spectra at low momenta are usually explained by hydro flow mechanisms, we demonstrate that with the present mechanism the low momentum features are perfectly explained by the overall hardening of the spectra. The saturation of the sum of the transverse momenta with multiplicity gives strong base to our observations.

        We will present the results obtained with Pythia8 using different multiplicity estimators (central multiplicity estimator and the one based on the multiplicity in the transverse side) for different pseudorapidity ranges.

        Pre-hydrodynamic evolution and its signatures in final-state observables 20m

        The system created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions quickly reaches local equilibrium and its evolution is usually modeled with relativistic hydrodynamics. However, the effects of the early, pre-equilibrium stages of system evolution on final-state observables are largely unknown. In this work, we study the effects of pre-hydrodynamic evolution on final-state observables in various heavy-ion collision systems. We employ state-of-the art hydrodynamic simulations coupled to different pre-hydrodynamical scenarios, including Kompost, a recently-developed effective kinetic transport theory evolution model. We find that the addition of a pre-equilibrium stage can have a significant effect on the development of transverse momentum, but only a small effect on flow and fluctuations, even differentially in transverse momentum. These results impose constraints on the way in which the initial particle production immediately after the initial hard scattering is connected to the subsequent hydrodynamic evolution of the system.

They are, the out-of-plane to in-plane ratio of fluctuation of the difference between signed balance functions measured in pairs rest frame, and the ratio of it to similar measurement made in the laboratory frame. Both observables have been studied with simulations including flow-related backgrounds, and for the first time, backgrounds that are related to resonance’s global spin alignment. The two observables have similar positive responses to signal, and opposite, limited responses to identifiable backgrounds arising from resonance flow and spin alignment. Both observables have also been tested with two realistic models, namely, a multi-phase transport (AMPT) model and anomalous-viscous fluid dynamics (AVFD) model. These two observables, when cross examined, will provide useful insights in the study of CME-induced charge separation.

        Probing small-x gluons with gamma+hadron correlations in the forward rapidity with the LHCb detector 20m

        Gluon nuclear PDFs still have large uncertainties in the small-x ($x$<10^{-3}) and small virtuality $Q^2<$50 (GeV/c)$^{2}$ region. Yields from particles coming from these gluons obtained in nuclear collisions are suppressed relative to $p$+$p$ collisions because of initial-state effects such as shadowing, energy loss and gluon saturation. Precise measurement of yields coming from small-x, small-$Q^2$ gluons are essential to understand these effects which have a significant contribution to the suppressions observed in A+A collisions at RHIC and LHC. The inverse Compton process $q+q\rightarrow \gamma+q \rightarrow \gamma+h$ is one of the few which can access and provide information on the gluon $x$ and $Q^2$ in the region where nPDFs are not well constrained. The LHCb detector can measure photons through the Electromagnetic Calorimeter or photon conversion to dielectrons in the pseudorapidity range 2$<\eta<$5, covering $x>5\times 10^{-6}$ and $Q^2>2$GeV$^2$ in the case of inverse Compton processes. This unique coverage allow us to search for the gluon saturation scale, the transition between dilute and saturated gluons, predicted by the Color-Glass Condensate effective theory. This presentation will show the status of the isolated $\gamma+$hadron correlation analysis using data collected in $p$+Pb and Pb+$p$ collisions at 8.16 TeV and $p$+$p$ collisions at 8 TeV. New techniques will also be presented to identify isolated photons and subtract the large background from neutral meson decays.

        Production of $D_{s}^{\pm}$ mesons in Au+Au collision at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 GeV by STAR 20m

        Charm quarks are excellent probes to study properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. In particular, measurements of the $D_{s}^{\pm}$ meson production can provide valuable information on the strangeness enhancement in the QGP as well as the charm quark hadronization mechanisms in heavy-ion collisions. In this poster, we will present results from the STAR experiment on invariant yields of $D_{s}^{\pm}$ mesons as a function of transverse momentum for different centrality classes of Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 GeV. The measurements utilize the data with the Heavy Flavor Tracker from 2014 and 2016. The ratio between strange ($D_{s}^{\pm}$) and non-strange ($D^{0}$) open charm mesons will also be shown, and compared to PYTHIA and model calculations. A clear enhancement relative to the PYTHIA calculation is seen in the ratio, while model calculations incorporating strangeness enhancement and charm quark coalescence hadronization are closer to data. These results suggest that recombination of charm quarks with equilibrated strange quarks in the QGP plays an important role in charm quark hadronization.

        Production of $J/\psi$ meson in jets at mid-rapidity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV with ALICE 20m

        The production of quarkonia in hadron-hadron collisions occurs at the transition between the perturbative and nonperturbative regimes of QCD, resulting in a rich phenomenology that remains far from being fully understood. $J/\psi$ hadronization dynamics can be studied by measuring the $p_{T}$ fraction, $z \equiv p_{T,J/\psi} / p_{T,jet}$, carried by the $J/\psi$ meson detected inside a jet. The distribution of this quantity, also called fragmentation function, gives us an opportunity to investigate the dominant subprocesses responsible for $J/\psi$ production. In addition, the production of non-prompt $J/\psi$, coming from b hadron decays, inside a jet should be sensitive to the fragmentation functions of quarks and gluons into b hadrons. The fragmentation of high $p_{T}$ jets containing a $J/\psi$ meson was measured in pp collisions by LHCb and CMS Collaborations, respectively. The results surprisingly show that non-prompt $J/\psi$ in jets are well described by models, but that prompt $J/\psi$ tend to be produced at much lower $z$ than the model predicted.

        In this contribution, we present the measurements of the fragmentation of jets into $J/\psi$ in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV using the data collected by ALICE,with the $J/\psi$ being measured at mid-rapidity in the di-electron decay channel by the central barrel detectors. Prompt and non-prompt components will be separated using the pseudo-proper decay length.

The D$^\pm$ invariant spectrum was then obtained in 0-10\%, 10-40\%, 40-80\%, and 0-80\% central Au+Au collisions. The measured nuclear modification factor $R_\mathrm{AA}(p_\mathrm{T})$ reveals a significant suppression of high-$p_\mathrm{T}$ D$^\pm$ mesons in central and mid-central Au+Au collisions with respect to p+p collisions. The $(\textrm{D}^++\textrm{D}^-)/(\textrm{D}^0+\overline{\textrm{D}^0})$ yield ratio has also been extracted and compared to that from PYTHIA calculations.

        Production of identified light flavour hadrons as a function of underlying event activity in pp collisions using the ALICE detector 20m

        Various recent measurements of high-multiplicity pp and p-A collisions at the LHC center-of-mass energies have revealed, surprisingly, that these small collision systems exhibit some of the quark-gluon plasma features, e.g. collective behaviour and strangeness enhancement, formerly thought to be achievable only in heavy-ion collisions. A promising method to narrow down the origin of this behaviour is to study the effect of Multi-Parton Interactions (MPIs). The underlying event (UE), which is the collection of particles not originating from the primary hard parton-parton scattering or the related fragmentation, is thought to be highly sensitive to the MPIs. To access the mean number of MPIs experimentally, it has been proposed to use the self-normalised charged particle density in the region transverse to a jet, $R_\mathrm{T} = N_\mathrm{ch}^\mathrm{trans} / \langle N_\mathrm{ch}^\mathrm{trans} \rangle$, as it effectively disentangles the soft processes of interest from the hard component.

        In this contribution, we report on the $\pi$, $p$, $K$, $\phi$, $\Lambda$, and $\Xi$ transverse momentum spectra—covering both mesons and baryons, as well as non-strange and strange hadrons—as a function of $R_\mathrm{T}$ in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$TeV measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC. Thus, we probe collective behaviour and strangeness enhancement in both the low-UE and the high-UE extremes and provide results with a good discriminatory potential for theoretical models.

        Production of J/$\psi$ and $\psi$(2S) in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 510 GeV from the STAR experiment 20m

        Measurements of the production cross sections of heavy quarkonia, namely J/$\psi$ and $\psi$(2S), in hadron-hadron collisions provide valuable information about yet unsolved questions of Quantum Chromodynamics. The Solenoid Tracker At RHIC (STAR) is a major high-energy nuclear physics experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Its Muon Telescope Detector, which provides trigger and identification capability for muons, enables to study quarkonia in the $\mu^{+}$$\mu^{-}$ decay channel which is less affected by bremsstrahlung energy losses in detector materials.

        In this poster, we will present the measurements of the production cross sections of the J/$\psi$ and $\psi$(2S) mesons, as well as the $\psi$(2S) to J/$\psi$ yield ratio as a function of $p_{T}$ via the $\mu^{+}$$\mu^{-}$ decay channel in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 510 GeV from data recorded in 2017 by the STAR experiment. It is the first measurement of $\psi$(2S) as a function of $p_{T}$ from STAR experiment. The results will be compared with various theoretical models including Next-to-Leading Order NRQCD, Improved Color Evaporation Model, and Color Glass Condensate effective theory with the NRQCD formalism.

        Production of pions, kaons and protons in p--Pb collisions at $\mathrm{\sqrt{s_{NN}}}$=8.16 TeV with ALICE at LHC 20m

        At the end of 2016 the ALICE experiment at the LHC collected data from p--Pb collisions at $\mathrm{\sqrt{s_{NN}}}$=8.16 TeV.
        These data represent an important chance to test the emergence of possible initial state effects, by comparing the transverse momentum distributions of identified light hadrons extracted in this dataset to those previously measured in pp and Pb--Pb collisions, in a wide transverse momentum range.
        In this poster, we present the results of non single diffractive as well as multiplicity-dependent transverse momentum spectra, $p_{\rm{T}}$-integrated yield ratios and $\langle p_{\rm{T}} \rangle$ for identified $\mathrm{\pi}$, K and p, in p--Pb collisions at $\mathrm{\sqrt{s_{NN}}}$=8.16 TeV. The measurement is performed thanks to the excellent particle-identification capabilities of the ALICE ITS (Inner Tracking System), TPC (Time Projection Chamber) and TOF (Time Of Flight) detectors.
        These results will be compared to those obtained with colliding systems of various sizes and at different energies as well as to the predictions of the available Monte Carlo event generators and hydrodynamic models.

        Production of the higher mass K* (1430) resonance in pp collisions at √ s = 13 TeV 20m

        Short lived hadronic resonances are very useful tools to probe the evolution of high energy heavy-ion collisions. Owing to the short lifetime of resonances $(\sim 10^{-23}$s), their characteristic properties such as mass, width and yield are very sensitive to the collision dynamics and in-medium effects. Multiple resonances have been studied in ALICE, including $\rho(770)$, $K^{*}(892)$, $\phi(1020)$, $\Lambda(1520)$ . However there are higher excited state resonances like $K^{*}(1430)$ and $K_2(1770)$ which have not yet been studied in the experiment because of their low production rate and difficulties in separating them cleanly from the underlying correlated background. Recent high statistics data in pp collisions collected by ALICE allow us to study the higher excited kaon state $K^{*}(1430)$. The lifetime of the $K^{*}(1430)$ ($\sim$1.5 fm$\thinspace /c$) is smaller than that of $K^{*}(892)$ ($\sim$4 fm$\thinspace /c$), it is expected that $K^{*}(1430)$ will be affected more by re-scattering in the late hadronic phase and hence measuring $K^{*}(1430)$ production in pp collisions will provide a baseline for similar measurements in Pb--Pb collisions.

        We will present the first measurement of the $K^{*}(1430)$ meson reconstruced through its hadronic decay channel, $K^{*}(1430)\rightarrow K\pi$ at mid-rapidity ($|y| < 0.5$) in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV using the ALICE detector. Measurements of its mass, width and yields will be presented and discussed.

        Prospects for measuring $\Xi_{\rm c}^{+}$ and $\Sigma_{\rm c}^{++,0}$ baryons with ALICE 20m

        Recent measurements of charm baryon production in pp and p-Pb collisions at LHC energies show a baryon-over-meson ratio significantly higher than expectations from Monte Carlo generators tuned to reproduce the lower values measured in ${\rm e}^{+}{\rm e}^{-}$ and ${\rm e}^{\pm}{\rm p}$ collisions. In Pb--Pb collisions at LHC and Au--Au collisions at RHIC, even higher values of $\Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}/{\rm D^{0}}$ ratios were observed, described within large uncertainties by models that foresee that $\Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}$ can form via coalescence of charm quarks with light quarks from the medium. These results indicate that charm baryon production in hadronic collisions is not fully understood and suggest that heavy-quark hadronisation can be sensitive to the presence of a surrounding hadronic environment.

        Models that better reproduce the $\Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}/{\rm D^{0}}$ ratio in pp collisions expect a significant contribution to $\Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}$ yield from decays of heavier charm-baryon states, among which $\Sigma_{\rm c}$ states. The same models also predict an enhancement of $\Xi_{\rm c}/{\rm D^{0}}$ ratios with respect to ${\rm e}^{+}{\rm e}^{-}$ data. Therefore, the measurement of the production of $\Sigma_{\rm c}$ and $\Xi_{\rm c}$ states can provide fundamental insight into charm hadronisation.

        In this contribution the prospects for measuring $\Xi_{\rm c}^{+}$ and $\Sigma_{\rm c}^{++,0}$ production at mid-rapidity with the ALICE detector via the reconstruction of the $\Xi_{\rm c}^{+}\rightarrow {\rm pK^{-}}\pi^{+}$ and $\Sigma_{\rm c}^{++,0}\rightarrow \Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}\pi^{+,-}, \Lambda_{\rm c}^{+}\rightarrow{\rm pK^{-}}\pi^{+}$ decay channels will be presented.

        Proton Yields, Multiplicities, and Event-by-event Fluctuations for Au+Au Collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ from 3 GeV at STAR 20m

        The first RHIC Beam Energy Scan (BES-I) was run from 2010-2014 to search for the turn-off of signatures of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), evidence of the first-order phase transition, and the possible QCD critical point. The QGP signatures studied in BES-I became insensitive or disappeared at energies below $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 19.6 GeV. The fluctuations in the event-by-event net-proton multiplicities exhibited a dip at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ ≈ 19.6 GeV and a rise at 7.7 GeV. Motivated by the findings of BES-I, STAR has initiated a phase II of the BES program (BES-II). The BES-II program improves upon the earlier BES-I program with detector upgrades to extend the acceptance, higher luminosity to provide $10-20$ times better statistics at each energy, and a Fixed-Target program to extend the range of BES-II below the expected critical point. In this poster, results from the first dedicated fixed-target physics run at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 3 GeV will be presented. The run used a 250 $\mu$m thick gold target and accumulated 335 million Au+Au events. We present proton (and anti-proton) yields and multiplicities. These measurements will be compared with results from AGS experiments E866 and E895. We will discuss the implications of the observed multiplicities and efficiency corrections to the study of cumulants of event-by-event net-proton multiplicities up to the fourth order as a function of rapidity. It is expected that this collision energy of $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 3 GeV should fall below the transition to QGP, therefore measurements at this energy will test for the return of the critical fluctuations to the expected baseline. Results at this energy will help understand the trends observed in the previous results from the BES program and preliminary results from HADES. Additionally, we will discuss the future of BES-II fixed-target measurements at RHIC.

        QLBT: The Linear Boltzmann Transport model for heavy quarks with a medium of quasi-particles 20m

        Heavy quarks are ideal probes of the QGP matter. To consistently describe the medium evolution and heavy-quark-medium interaction, we improve the linear Boltzmann Transport (LBT) model [Phys. Lett. B777 (2018) 255-259] by modeling QGP as a collection of quasi-particles with equation of state (EOS) fitted to the lattice QCD data. We call this QLBT model, in which the in-medium scatterings of heavy quarks are described using the linear Boltzmann transport that includes both elastic and inelastic energy loss of heavy quarks within the perturbative QCD framework. The temperature dependences of the quasi-particle masses, as well as the strong coupling parameter among them, are systematically extracted from two different sets of lattice EOS (Hot QCD and Wuppertal­-Budapest) with a Bayesian statistical analysis method. With all model parameters fixed by the lattice QCD calculations, QLBT naturally provides a good description of the nuclear modification factors and elliptic flow coefficients of heavy mesons at high transverse momenta. Systematical uncertainties arising from applying two different lattice equations of states are evaluated and turn out to be small for heavy flavor observables.

        \maketitle

        ALICE has been designed to study the quark-gluon plasma in heavy-ion collisions at LHC. Extensive efforts in the ALICE upgrade projects are currently being made toward LHC-Run3 (2021-2024). The Muon Forward Tracker (MFT), one of the new detectors, will be installed upstream of the hadron absorber in front of the Muon Spectrometer (MUON). The vertex information is smeared out with the present MUON setup due to multiple scattering occurring in this absorber. This prevents us from precisely measuring the track direction which plays a crucial role in determining the mass resolution especially in the low transverse momentum region. The chiral nature of the phase transition can be investigated via low mass vector meson measurements with superior mass resolution provided by MFT. The present uncertainty in the vertex region prevents us from distinguishing between charm and beauty, and between prompt and displaced J/$\psi$.\par
        The matching performance between MFT and MUON is therefore crucial to improve the dimuon mass resolution and reject muons from hadron decays in the hadron absorber. The matching efficiency is calculated including multiple scatterings in the hadron absorber simulated by Geant4. The measured charged particle multiplicity and a quality of muon tracks are carefully taken into account in the calculation. In this poster, we present the results of the evaluation of the muon track matching efficiency.

        Quantum dissipation in the quarkonium evolution by Lindblad master equation 20m

        In heavy ion collisions, physical properties of quark-gluon plasma(QGP) have been long studied. In these experiments, survival probability of quarkonia, which are bound states of the heavy quark and antiquark pair, is expected to be a good probe to the formation of the QGP. Their dynamics has been studied to interpret the experimental data.

        A quarkonium can be theoretically described by master equation for the density matrix in the framework of open quantum system. It allows us to describe the Langevin dynamics of quarkonia in a quantum mechanical manner. In particular, quantum dissipation as well as decoherence of quarkonia attract much attention recently.

        In this study, we consider the relative motion of a heavy quark pair in the QGP. We derive and numerically simulate the master equation in the Lindblad form in one spatial dimension. We analyze the effects of the quantum dissipation to its equilibration. We also discuss whether or not the dissipative process of quarkonium is significant in heavy-ion collisions by simulating in a short-lived Bjorken expanding QGP.

        Quantum kinetic theory for Dirac fermions in curved spacetime 20m

        Many-body systems with chiral fermions exhibit anomalous transport phenomena originated from quantum anomalies. Based on quantum field theory, we derive the quantum kinetic theory for Dirac fermions interacting with an external electromagnetic field in a background curved geometry. The resultant framework is U(1) gauge invariant and local Lorentz and diffeomorphism covariant. In this talk, I will illustrate the gravitational or noninertial effects for Dirac fermions. We study the chiral dynamics in a rotating coordinate and clarify the roles of the Coriolis force and spin-vorticity coupling in generating the chiral vortical effect. We also show that the chiral vortical effect is an intrinsic phenomenon of a rotating chiral fluid, and thus independent of the observer's frame. The framework is also available for massive fermions. We derive the kinetic equation and spin evolution equation for massive fermions, and calculate the spin polarization induced by vorticity and magnetic field via kinetic theory.

        Quark-hadron continuity beyond Ginzburg-Landau paradigm 20m

        Quark-hadron continuity [1] is a scenario that the hadronic matter is continuously connected to a color superconducting phase without phase transitions as the baryon chemical potential increases. This scenario is based on the fact that the two phases have the same symmetry breaking pattern, in the spirit of Landau's classification of phases. When we consider quantum phases of matter, it is known that the classification based on symmetry is insufficient: it fails to detect so-called topological orders. We address the question whether this continuity is true as quantum phases of matter, which requires the treatment beyond Ginzburg-Landau description [2,3].
        To examine the topological nature of color superconductor, we study the low-energy theory describing U(1) Nambu-Goldstone (NG) bosons and vortices of the color-flavor locked phase, and discuss the fate of emergent higher-form symmetries. The theory has the form of a topological BF theory coupled to NG bosons, and fractional statistics of test quarks and vortices arises as a result of an emergent Z3 two-form symmetry. We find that the two-form symmetry is not spontaneously broken, indicating that quark-hadron continuity is still a consistent scenario.

        Quarkonia as an Open-Quantum-System 20m

        Quarkonia suppression has been long predicted \cite{satz19861} and explored as a defining signature of formation of quark-gluon-plasma (QGP). Various physical processes \cite{satz19861,laine20071,brambilla20081} have been understood to contribute to the dynamics of a Q-$\bar{Q}$ traversing through the QGP. The proper framework to implement a Schr\"{o}dinger equation, which takes into account the dynamical nature of the above problem, is treating the system as an open quantum system \cite{akamatsu20121,akamatsu20151}.

        In our calculation, we implement a stochastic Schr\"{o}dinger equation which describes the evolution of the Q-$\bar{Q}$ pair starting from a pure state.
        In the first part, we start with an extension of the results obtained in \cite{akamatsu20181} by extending the calculation to three-dimensional case and including the full-color structure of a Q-$\bar{Q}$ pair (including color-octet states as well). We do so by expanding the equations obtained in \cite{akamatsu20151} in small $\vec{r}$ limit. This is not an ad hoc approximation but is rather motivated by the idea of effective-field-theory (EFT) methods, such as pNRQCD \cite{brambilla20081}. Further, in a simple calculation, we check how much of an error small `$\vec{r}$' expansion brings. This is an example of a Markovian process as shown in \cite{akamatsu20151}. This formalism does not include on-shell gluon emission or absorption.

        The second part of the calculation is a dynamical implementation of the physical process called gluo-dissociation \cite{brambilla20081} by the means of stochastic evolution. This necessarily involves kernels which remember correlation in time as the process occurs at a finite frequency. This is an example of a non-Markovian process. If one wants to use results from lattice (since the QGP formed at RHIC and LHC is an example of a strongly coupled system), one would like to understand the relative importance of these physical processes. We suggest that this can be done by comparing correlation functions of color electric-fields at zero and non-zero frequencies. It appears that non-Markovian dynamics will play an important role when higher-excited states are considered.

        Quarkonium dynamics with colorful stochastic potential 20m

        In heavy ion collision experiments at RHIC and LHC, quarkonium yields have been measured at various collision energies. The experimental findings reveal different characteristic behavior: sequential suppression dominates for bottomonium and recombination for charmonium. A comprehensive understanding of this phenomenology requires a genuine quantum mechanical treatment, in particular to capture the phenomenon of decoherence central to a unified description of suppression and recombination.

        Recently progress has been made in understanding the in-medium dynamics of a quarkonium based on the framework of open quantum system. It allows us to derive the dynamics of quarkonium in the quark-gluon-plasma systematically from QCD and already has helped improve our understanding of the complex in-medium potential. In a previous study, based on the stochastic potential approximation [1], we have elucidated the role of decoherence on the stability of in-medium heavy quarkonium, identifying it as a novel mechanism for quarkonium dissociation via scattering with the medium [2], in addition to the well-known Debye screening.

        In this talk we present results [3], where for the first time color degrees of freedom are taken into account in fully quantum mechanical fashion without invoking a semi-classical approximation. I.e. we simulate a genuine color SU(3) stochastic Schrödinger equation. We discuss how SU(3) color degrees of freedom affect the real-time evolution of quarkonium color singlet and octet states. We find the preservation of quarkonium parity in the colorful stochastic potential. We also show how the decoherence proceeds in the color octet states and discuss the availability of classical description for the gluo-dissociation process.

        Readout electronics for the sPHENIX Time Projection Chamber 20m

        One of the major physics goals of the sPHENIX experiment at RHIC
        is to major the Upsilon states with 100MeV mass resolution. In order to
        achieve this resolution, a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) was proposed
        for momentum measurements of electrons and hadrons. The TPC does
        not have a gating grid similarly to the ALICE TPC case and therefore
        capable for handing the collision rate of up to a few hundreds KHz.
        In turn, the charge has to be readout continuously. The readout
        electronics was newly designed to meet this requirement. The signal is
        readout by 624 Frontend cards that have 8 SAMPA v5 chips, the new
        version of the one employed for ALICE TPC, and sent to a backend
        electronics, FELIX PCI card, designed for ATLAS experiment. The data
        rate from the whole TPC may reach as much as 1.4Tbps. We will show
        the readout scheme for the TPC and the performance from the prototype
        boards as well as the data reduction scheme.

        Recent measurements of hadronic resonances in small systems at ALICE 20m

        Hadronic resonances are unique and useful probes of ion-ion collision systems. They can be used to study the evolution of the hadrochemistry with system size, including resonance suppression and strangeness enhancement. Resonances can also be used to explore the various mechanisms that influence the shapes of hadron $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ spectra and to search for the possible onset of collective effects in small systems. The ALICE Collaboration has measured a wide variety of mesonic and baryonic resonances in pp and p-Pb collision systems at different energies from low to high charged-particle multiplicities. New results will be reported as functions of the multiplicity, including measurements of the $\mathrm{f}_{0}(980)$ meson in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=5.02$~TeV; the $\mathrm{f}_{0}(980)$, $\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$, $\Lambda(1520)$, $\Xi(1530)^{0}$, and $\Xi(1820)$ resonances in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$~TeV; and the $\mathrm{K}^{*}(892)$ and $\phi(1020)$ mesons in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02$ and 8.16 TeV. The results will be compared to measurements from lower energies and discussed in the context of theoretical models.

        Reconstruction of neutral mesons in heavy ion collisions using the conversion method with HADES and CBM* 20m

        The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) and the High Acceptance Di-Electron Spectrometer (HADES) are part of a worldwide research program devoted to study the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter at high baryon densities $\rho_{B}$ and moderate temperatures $T$ in p+A and A+A collisions. One of the major observables addressed by both experiments is dilepton production.

        A central goal is to establish the excitation function of dilepton emission for heavy collision systems. While HADES is studying the lowest collision energies up to 1.5$A$ GeV, CBM, in a first campaign, will continue the excitation function to 12$A$ GeV. Central component of both detector setups is Ring Imaging Cherenkov Detectors (RICH), which are intended to identify and select leptons among all other particles.

        Dalitz decays of long-lived neutral mesons ($\pi^0$, $\eta$) constitute an important source of dielectrons in the LMR (hadronic cocktail). The presented analysis aims to reconstruct neutral mesons using conversion ($\pi^0/\eta \rightarrow \gamma\gamma \rightarrow (e^+e^-)+(e^+e^-)$ or $\pi^0/\eta \rightarrow e^+e^-\gamma \rightarrow e^+e^-+(e^+e^-)$) inside the target or in first detector layers in order to provide an independent measurement of the respective multiplicities needed to constrain the hadronic cocktail with sufficient precision. Proper counting of these mesons requires an exact description of the combinatorial background below $\pi^0/\eta$ invariant mass peaks, which is achieved using the event mixing technique.

        The poster will present first results from the conversion based analysis of $\pi^0$ and $\eta$ multiplicities using the new HADES data set obtained for Ag+Ag at 1.58$A$ GeV collisions in spring this year. For this run, the photon detector of HADES RICH was replaced by a newly developed MAPMT based system also foreseen for CBM. The performance obtained in the HADES run was studied in details and consistently introduced in the CBM experiment simulation framework.
        Respective results of performance studies of the CBM experiment will also be shown.

        Results from open charm production at LHCb in pPb 20m

        Within proton-lead collisions collected by the LHCb detector at nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 5 and 8.16 TeV, a rich set of open charm hadrons is observed with abundant statistics. Thanks to the LHCb forward acceptance that is complementary to general purpose detectors and excellent performance in particle reconstruction and identification, these charm states are studied down to zero $p_T$ with overwhelming precision in heavy ion data. Presented in this talk is the measurements of production of charm mesons and baryons reconstructed in exclusive hadronic final states. Nuclear effects are studied, quantified by the nuclear modification factors, forward-to-backward production ratios and baryon-to-meson ratios. The impact of the results, in particularly, on the improvement of nuclear PDF and parton saturation are discussed.

        Rotation Induced Novel Condensation in a Magnetic Field 20m

        We mainly focus on the effect of rotation on the QCD phase structure in a background magnetic field. We analyze the energy spectra of Dirac fermions in the presence of rotation and magnetic field. We find that the Landau degeneracy is resolved by rotation. A drastic change in the energy dispersion relation leads to the “rotational magnetic inhibition” that is a novel phenomenon analogous to the inverse magnetic catalysis in a magnetic system at finite chemical potential. Then we take in to account the boundary condition to perserve the casuality find that mode accumulation at the boundary occurs for large angular momenta and that the magnetic effect is enhanced on the boundary surface. Using a simple fermionic model, we confirm that the magnetic catalysis is strongly amplified at the boundary due to the mode accumulation. Besides, we also find that there is a competition between the rotational inhibition of the spin zero pairing and the enhancement of the pion BEC.

        Search for axion-like particles at Electron-ion collider: higher luminosity, brighter perspective 20m

        We study the promising perspective of search for axion-like particles (ALP) at the future electron-ion collider experiments. ALP could be the candidate for the dark matter of the universe. We calculate the production rate for those ALPs which are coupled to photons at electron-ion collider. Because of the large gamma factor for the electron but more prominently due to the achievable high luminosity at EIC, the number of such ALPs produced per year through light-by-light scattering at EIC can be sizable if their masses are within the range between 10 GeV and 100 GeV. This is in turn would provide unprecedented constraint on ALP in this mass range. Furthermore, we also show the possibility of constraining Axion-gluon coupling if gluon saturation scenario is achieved at EIC.

        Search for the QCD Critical Point by Transverse Velocity Dependence of Anti-deuteron to Deuteron Ratio 20m

        The QCD critical point can attract the system evolution trajectory in the QCD phase diagram, which is recognized as the QCP focusing effect[1,2]. To quantify this effect, we employ thermal model and hadronic transport model to simulate the dynamical particle emission along a hypothetical focusing trajectory near the critical point. It is found that the focusing effect can lead to anomalous $\beta_T$ dependence of anti-pariticle to particle ratio. Heavier light anti-nuclei to light nuclei ratios are more sensitive to the focusing effect in the vicinity of critical point.

        In this talk, We will present the $\beta_T$ dependence of $\bar{d}/d$ ratio in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = $ 11.5-200 GeV measured by the STAR experiment at RHIC. We observed a negative slope of the $\beta_T$ dependence of $\bar{d}/d$ ratio at 19.6 GeV, although the statistical and systematical errors are large. It might indicate the trajectory evolution has passed through the critical region. Further constraint of the location of the critical point and/or width of the critical region can be studied by making precise measurements in the RHIC BES-II.

        Semi-inclusive hadron-jet productions in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 5.02 TeV with ALICE 20m

        The measurement of reconstructed jets over a wide range in jet energy and jet resolution parameter $R$ is required for comprehensive understanding of jet quenching in heavy-ion collisions. Such measurements are challenging, however, due to the presence of complex, uncorrelated background to the jet signal, and the need to minimize biases in the selected jet population imposed by background suppression techniques.

        In this contribution, we present an approach to measure jets using the semi-inclusive distribution of charged jets recoiling from a high-$p_{\rm T}$ charged hadron trigger in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 5.02 TeV, with emphasis on the region of low recoil jet $p_{\rm T}$ by taking the advantages of the high statistics collected with ALICE. The semi-inclusive recoil jet measurement provides precise, data-driven suppression of the large uncorrelated background and uniquely enables the exploration of medium-induced modification of jet production over wide phase space, including low $p_{\rm T}$ for large jet resolution parameter $R$. Such measurement provides a good test for pQCD calculations, and sets as a reference for jet quenching study in nucleus-nucleus collisions.

        Sensitivity analysis of the chiral magnetic effect observables using a multiphase transport model 20m

        The chiral magnetic effect is a good observable to investigate the topological and electromagnetic properties of the QGP. But the $\gamma$ correlator, a common observable used to detect the CME, contains both contribution from the CME and its background. This observable can not identify the CME from its background. Recently, a new observable of $R_{\Psi_{m}}$ has been proposed[1-4], which is expected to distinguish the CME from the background. We apply mixing particles method and shuffling particles method to calculate $R_{\Psi_{m}}$ using a multiphase transport model without or with a percentage of CME-induced charge separation[5,6]. From the results, we found that the shape of final $R_{\Psi_{2}}$ distribution is flat for the case without CME[7], but concave for that with some amount of the CME. By comparing the responses of $R_{\Psi_{2}}$ and $\gamma$ to the strength of the CME, we found that the CME signal can survive only when the initial charge separation percentage is large enough (more than $5\%$), which indicates a nonlinear sensitivity of these observables to the CME due to strong final state interactions.

        Sensitivity to detect ultra-intense magnetic field in Pb-Pb collisions via dimuon polarization measurement at the ALICE experiment 20m

        In non-central nucleus-nucleus collisions, an ultra-intense magnetic field reaching 10^15 [Tesla] is generated. Many interesting phenomena such as non-linear QED and Chiral Magnetic Effect are expected to be induced under the field. Nucleus-nucleus collisions are the only one way to generate such a field and to study the field-induced phenomena experimentally.
        Di-leptons from virtual photons are a unique tool for probing such an ultra-intense magnetic field because virtual photons should decay into di-leptons with nonuniform decay planes with respect to the field due to the field-induced birefringence in vacuum.
        To get more precise data, ALICE will install a new detector “Muon Forward Tracker (MFT)” in front of hadron absorber of Muon Spectrometer. MFT allows us to approach more accurate information about vertex of dimuons. This is expected to reduce background muons mainly from charged pions or kaons.
        In this poster, the sensitivity for detecting the field by polarization of di-muons from virtual photons will be discussed.

        Separating quark and gluon jet distributions in heavy ions 20m

        Current measurements of the modification of jets in the quark–gluon plasma necessarily average over the quark–gluon composition of the jets in the sample. This introduces substantial complications in measuring differences of energy loss and modification between quark-initiated and gluon-initiated jets. Additionally, even in the absence of jet modification, a modified quark–gluon fraction of jets in heavy-ion collisions could give rise to a substantial apparent modification arising just from differences between the production properties of quark- and gluon-initiated jets. We demonstrate a fully data-driven method for separating contributions to jet observables coming from quark- and gluon-initiated jets using a statistical technique called topic modeling. Assuming that jet observable distributions are a mixture of underlying quark and gluon distributions enables us to extract those distributions and their relative fractions from dijet and photon+jet samples. As a proof of concept, we extract the fractions of quark- and gluon-initiated jets as a function of $p_T$ and separately compute $R_{A A}$ for quark and gluon jets. We furthermore use this method to distinguish between modification of an observable that arises from modification of the quark–gluon fraction versus modification of that observable individually for either quark or gluon jets. We show that this distinction is of central importance to even qualitative interpretations of jet modification observables in heavy-ion collisions.

        Shear viscosity of ultrarelativistic Boson systems in the presence of Bose-Einstein condensate 20m

        We calculate the shear viscosity of ultrarelativistic Boson systems in the presence of Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). Two different methods are used. One is the Grad’s method of moments and another is the Green-Kubo relation within a kinetic transport approach. In this work we consider a Boson system with isotropic elastic collisions and a gluon system with elastic scatterings described by perturbation QCD (pQCD). The results show that the presence of BEC lowers the shear viscosity. This effect becomes stronger for the increasing proportion of the BEC in the Boson system and is insensitive to the detail of interactions.
