Relativistic nuclear physics at the LHC


This proposal requests support to develop research in Relativistic Nuclear Physics at the Federal University of ABC (UFABC) in association with the ALICE collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of the European Centre of Nuclear Research (CERN). The proposed research program intends to perform research in relativistic nuclear collisions through the so called "hard probes", such as high energy photons, jets and, especially, b-jets. To that end, and considering the 2022 new setup of the ALICE experiment, the development of Machine Learning algorithms is envisaged, in special, the development of a efficient jet b-tagging algorithm, with high purity. Still within the ALICE collaboration the participation in the forward calorimeter upgrade, the FoCal, continues by means of physics performance simulations for its Technical Design Report (TDR). Another goal in preparation for a longer term is the engagement in the simulations for the new experiment that will substitute the current one, known as ALICE-3. Finally, this project will help in the consolidation of the research infrastructure initiated by previous projects also supported by FAPESP. (AU)
