Rope Hadronization, Geometry and Particle Production in pp and pA Collisions
Summary, in English
Paper I. The Lund string hadronization model is reviewed, and a model for corrections in busy environments, such as pp minimum bias, are introduced, and its implementation in the event generator DIPSY is described. The model affects the hadrochemistry of the underlying event, and improves description of existing pp data from LHC and RHIC.
Paper II. A series of new observables sensitive to effects from rope hadronization is introduced, and predictions of the rope hadronization model is compared to predictions from a similar model based on junction formation.
Paper III. The Glauber formalism for collisions of nuclei is reviewed, and contributions from diffraction are considered. The Glauber–Gribov formalism for colour fluctuations is compared to the DIPSY model. On the basis of this comparision, corrections to the Glauber–Gribov parametrization of the pp cross section are suggested.
This corrected formalism is then coupled to a particle production model, and preliminary descriptions of particle production in pA is given.
Paper IV. A model for string–shoving, expanding on the model from Paper I, is introduced at the proof–of–concept level. It is shown that the model qualitatively produces a rise of mean-p ⊥ with hadron mass and long range azimuthal correlations in pp collisions.
