Study of the underlying event at forward rapidity in proton-proton collisions at the LHC

Abstract

We study the underlying event activity in pp collisions at forward rapidity ($5.2 < \vert\eta\vert < 6.6$) by measuring the ratio of the energy density, $dE/d\eta$, between events with a charged particle jet produced at central rapidity ($ \vert\eta\vert < 2$) and inclusive events. The energy density ratio is measured as a function of the charged particle jet transverse momentum at three different proton-proton centre-of-mass energies ($\sqrt{\rm{s}} = 0.9, 2.76 \;\rm{and}\; 7 \;\rm{TeV}$). In addition, the relative increase of the energy density in inclusive events and in events with a central charged particle jet as a function of centre-of-mass energy is studied. The results are compared to MC generators for pp collisions and discussed in terms of the underlying event activity.

Single diffractive dissociation events have a $\xi_{\rm{X}}$ or $\xi_{\rm{Y}}$ value equal to $m_p^2/s$ ($\approx 10^{-7.7}$ at $\sqrt{s} =$ 7 TeV), while double diffractive dissociation and non-diffractive events have $\xi_{\rm{X}}$ and $\xi_{\rm{Y}}$ values ranging from 0 to 1. The green lines indicate the particle level cuts. At the particle level, all events to the top and to the right of the green lines are selected.
