 Heavy flavour collectivity in small systems / Krintiras, Georgios (Kansas U.) /ALICE, ATLAS and CMS Collaborations The presence of correlations between particles significantly separated in pseudorapidity in proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions revealed surprises in the early LHC data. Are the physical processes responsible for the observed long-range pseudorapidity correlations and their azimuthal structure the same in small collision systems as in heavy ion collisions? Whereas in the case of heavy ion collisions flow'' is interpreted as generated by initial geometric inhomogeneities, calculations indicate that initial-state momentum correlations are present and could contribute to the observed azimuthal anisotropy in small systems [...] CMS-CR-2021-128.- Geneva : CERN, 2021 - 8 p.

 ${\rm W^\pm}$-boson production in p–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 8.16$ TeV and Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE The production of the ${\rm W^\pm}$ bosons measured in p–Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon–nucleon collision $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 8.16$ TeV and Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV with ALICE at the LHC is presented. The ${\rm W^\pm}$ bosons are measured via their muonic decay channel, with the muon reconstructed in the pseudorapidity region $-4 < \eta_{\rm lab} < -2.5$ with transverse momentum $p_{\rm T}> 10$ GeV/$c$.

 ALICE luminosity determination for Pb$-$Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}} = 5.02$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration Luminosity determination within the ALICE experiment is based on the measurement, in van der Meer scans, of the cross sections for visible processes involving one or more detectors (visible cross sections). In 2015 and 2018, the Large Hadron Collider provided Pb$-$Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV.

 Photoproduction of low-$p_{\rm T}$ J/$\psi$ from peripheral to central Pb$-$Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration An excess of J/$\psi$ yield at very low transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T} < 0.3$ GeV/$c$), originating from coherent photoproduction, is observed in peripheral and semicentral hadronic Pb$-$Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV. The measurement is performed with the ALICE detector via the dimuon decay channel at forward rapidity ($2.5 2022-03-28 11:02  Measurement of the production of charm jets tagged with${\rm D^0}$mesons in pp collisions at$\sqrt{s}$= 5.02 and 13 TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration The measurement of the production of charm jets, identified by the presence of a${\rm D^0}$meson in the jet constituents, is presented in proton–proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of$\sqrt{s}$= 5.02 and 13 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC.
