Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli QGP Signatures The nature and the time evolution of the hot and dense system created in a heavy-ion collision are expected to show the characteristic behaviour of a QGP phase transition, which could dramatically change from one event to the other. Apart from the very well known probes (inclusive probes, probes related to deconfinement...), an analysis on an Event by Event basis offers the opportunity to study the QCD phase transition and to get insights into the QGP. For example: Thermodynamic quantities (T,S) Energy density fluctuations Jets and minijets DCC, Balance function... Properties of the system Order of phase transition Physics of the QGP Chiral phase transition, hadronization time... relying on the very high particle multiplicities produced per event (SPS, RHIC, LHC)

Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli Primary Track Selection The selection on primary tracks has been performed relying on the quality of the extrapolation of the tracks to the reconstructed primary vertex, taking into account the covariance parameters of the track as well. The inefficiency of the cut can be due to reconstruction defects secondaries included K p efficiency K p

Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli PID Performance - Definitions The PID performance is evaluated in terms of: efficiency = contamination = overall efficiency = = number of correctly/uncorrectly identified particles = number of generated primaries N = number of reconstructed particles to which the PID procedure is applied

17
Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli Systematic Uncertainties on the Corrections Possible sources of systematic errors: Knowledge of the acceptance and reconstruction efficiencies, secondaries flow... A detailed study on is to be made of systematic uncertainties. Nevertheless, since a level of 10% seems reasonable, 100 virtual experiments randomly changing the efficiency (contamination) correction factors by 10%. A small relative increase of few %s in the width of the temperature distributions has been observed in both cases (efficiency/ contamination). The mean values of the temperatures can vary by few %s.

21
Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli Summary & Conclusions Event by event fluctuations studies are an important tool to explore the QCD phase diagram, searching for the QGP, and the QCD critical point. Several recent experimental studies (at the SPS -NA49- and RHIC - STAR, PHENIX...- have focused on the studies of fluctuations in relativistic heavy ion collisions (high temperature and energy densities). Thanks to its very high particle yield per event, and to the excellent PID capabilities, ALICE will be able to study fluctuations measuring the identified particle spectra (, K, p) and the particle ratios (K/, p/ ) on an Event-by-Event basis.

22
Firenze, July 9 th 2006Correlations and Fluctuations Workshop Chiara Zampolli Summary and Conclusions – contd Temperature fluctuations: statistical fluctuations of the order of few percent for K and p. Particle ratios: statistical fluctuations of the order of few percent for both K/ and p/ Mean p T : statistical fluctuations of the order of few percent for, K and p and for inclusive spectra. Any other contribution from dynamical fluctuations due to new physics will result in an increase of the observed values The results presented herein strongly depend on the assumed dN ch /dy. HIJING simulation: dN ch /dy ~ 4500; RHIC results suggest a reduction by a factor ~ 2÷3 in the data. E-by-E studies still feasible
