A Monte Carlo study of identified particle ratio fluctuations at LHC energies is carried out in the framework of HIJING model using the fluctuation variable . The simulated events for Pb-Pb collisions at and 5.02 TeV and Xe-Xe collisions at are analyzed. From this study, it is observed that the values of , , and follow the similar trends of energy dependence as observed in the most central collision data by NA49, STAR, and ALICE experiments. It is also observed that for all the three combinations of particles for semicentral and central collisions, the model predicted values of for Pb-Pb collisions at agree fairly well with those observed in the ALICE experiment. For peripheral collisions, however, the model predicted values of are somewhat smaller, whereas for and it predicts larger values as compared to the corresponding experimental values. The possible reasons for the observed differences are discussed. The values scaled with charged particle density when plotted against exhibit a flat behaviour, as expected from the independent particle emission sources. For and combinations, a departure from the flat trend is, however, observed in central collisions in the case of low window when the effect of jet quenching or resonances is considered. Furthermore, the study of dependence on particle density for various collision systems (including proton-proton collisions) suggests that at LHC energies values for a given particle pair are simply a function of charged particle density, irrespective of system size, beam energy, and collision centrality.

Determination of Position Resolution for LYSO Scintillation Crystals Using Geant4 Monte Carlo Code

LYSO scintillation crystals, due to their significant characteristics such as high light yield, fast decay time, small Moliére radius, and good radiation hardness, are proposed to be used for the electromagnetic calorimeter section of the Turkish Accelerator Center Particle Factory (TAC-PF) detector. In this work, the center of gravity technique was used to determine the impact coordinates of an electron initiating an electromagnetic shower in a LYSO array, in a calorimeter module containing nine crystals, each in cross-section and 200 mm in length. The response of the calorimeter module has been studied with electrons having energies in the range 0.1 GeV-2 GeV. By using the Monte Carlo simulation based on Geant4, the two-dimensional position resolution of the module is obtained as at the center of the crystal.

Study of the Ground-State Energies of Some Nuclei Using Hybrid Model

The quark-quark (QQ) interaction as a perturbed term to the nucleon-nucleon interaction (NN) without any coupling between them is studied in a hybrid model. This model is used to calculate the ground-state energies of ^{2}H_{1} and ^{4}He_{2} nuclei. In a semirelativistic framework, this model is encouraged for light nuclei and the instanton-induced interaction by using the QQ potential and the NN interaction for a small scale around the hadron boundaries. This hybrid model depends on two theories, the one-boson exchange potential (OBEP) and the Cornell-dressed potential (CDP) for QQ. A small effect of quark-quark interaction is obtained on the values of the ground-state energies, around 6.7 and 1.2 percentage for ^{2}H_{1} and ^{4}He_{2}, respectively nuclei.

Superstring Backgrounds in String Geometry

String geometry theory is a candidate of the nonperturbative formulation of string theory. In order to determine the string vacuum, we need to clarify how superstring backgrounds are described in string geometry theory. In this paper, we show that all the type IIA, IIB, SO(32) type I, and SO(32) and heterotic superstring backgrounds are embedded in configurations of the fields of a single string geometry model. In particular, we show that the configurations satisfy the equations of motion of the string geometry model in if and only if the embedded string backgrounds satisfy the equations of motion of the supergravities, respectively. This means that classical dynamics of the string backgrounds are described as a part of classical dynamics in string geometry theory. Furthermore, we define an energy of the configurations in the string geometry model because they do not depend on the string geometry time. A string background can be determined by minimizing the energy.

An Effective Model for Glueballs and Dual Superconductivity at Finite Temperature

The glueballs lead to gluon and QCD monopole condensations as by-products of color confinement. A color dielectric function coupled with a Abelian gauge field is properly defined to mediate the glueball interactions at confining regime after *spontaneous symmetry breaking* (SSB) of the gauge symmetry. The particles are expected to form through the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) hadronization phase where the free quarks and gluons start clamping together to form hadrons. The QCD-like vacuum , confining potential , string tension , penetration depth , superconducting and normal monopole densities (), and the effective masses ( and ) will be investigated at finite temperature . We also calculate the strong “running” coupling and subsequently the QCD -function. The *dual superconducting* nature of the QCD vacuum will be investigated based on monopole condensation.

Charmonium Properties Using the Discrete Variable Representation (DVR) Method

The Schrödinger equation is solved numerically for charmonium using the discrete variable representation (DVR) method. The Hamiltonian matrix is constructed and diagonalized to obtain the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Using these eigenvalues and eigenfunctions, spectra and various decay widths are calculated. The obtained results are in good agreement with other numerical methods and with experiments.
