Direct observation of the dead-cone effect in QCD

Sala de Seminários do LIP (com transmissão via Zoom)

Por Nima Zardoshti (CERN).

The fragmentation properties of colour charges in QCD exhibit strong flavour dependence. For heavy-flavour quarks, a significant component of this flavour dependence is driven by their large masses. The mechanism responsible for generating these mass-dependent properties in QCD is the dead-cone effect, which sets a cone surrounding each emitter within which emissions are suppressed. The opening angle of this cone is proportional to the mass of the emitter and inversely proportional to its energy, meaning that the effect is largest for low energy heavy-flavour quarks. Here the first direct observation of the QCD dead cone is presented, by studying the gluon radiation pattern from charm quarks generated in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV using the ALICE detector. Charm-initiated track-based jets are tagged via the presence of a fully reconstructed D0 meson amongst their constituents, with iterative decluttering techniques used to reconstruct the resulting parton shower. The techniques are further extended to enact a program to quantify properties of charm emissions, with measurements mapping the c->cg splitting function also presented.

The objective of this course is to acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

Science is increasingly more present in our everyday decisions, with a fundamental role in global problems. Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge.

The course aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.

This 5-day course offers to the participants a light microscopy course focusing on fluorescence microscopy techniques applied to the detection of proteins and glycans in tissue samples and cell cultures.
