Very forward particle production at hadron colliders in perturbative QCD

Speaker: 
Federico Ceccopieri (University of Liege)
Event Type: 
Seminar
Location: 
Aula Caldirola

In the first part of the talk we present an analysis of forward neutron production in DIS within fracture functions formalism. By performing a pQCD fit of available HERA data we extract proton-to-neutron fracture functions exploiting a method which is in close relation with the factorisation theorem for this class of processes. In the second part of the talk we discuss to which extent forward particle production
can be described by the same formalism in hadronic collisions and discuss a collinear factorization formula for the associated production of one particle and a Drell-Yan pair in hadronic collisions.
