Measurement of the production ratios of prompt charged particles (protons, pions and kaons). Promptness is defined as originating from the primary interaction, either directly, or through the subsequent decay of a resonance.

$K_s$, $\Lambda$, and Cascade$-$ transverse momentum and rapidity spectra at 900 and 7000 GeV. (CMS_2011_S8978280)

The spectra of $K_S$, $\Lambda$, and Cascade- particles were measured versus transverse-momentum ($p_\perp$) and rapidity ($y$) in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies 900 and 7000 GeV. The production is normalized to all non-single-diffractive (NSD) events using corrections for trigger and selection efficiency, acceptance, and branching ratios. The results cover a rapidity range of $|y| < 2$ and a $p_\perp$ range from 0 to 10 GeV ($K_S$ and $\Lambda$) and 0 to 6 GeV (Cascade-). Antiparticles are included in all measurements so only the sums of $\Lambda$ and $\bar{\Lambda}$, and Cascade$-$ and anti-Cascade$-$ are given. The rapidity distributions are shown versus $|y|$ but normalized to a unit of $y$. Ratios of $\Lambda$/$K_S$ and Cascade$-$/$\Lambda$ production versus $p_\perp$ and $|y|$ are also given, with somewhat smaller systematic uncertainties than obtained from taking the ratio of the individual distributions.' The data were corrected according to the SD/DD/ND content of the CMS trigger, as predicted by PYTHIA6. The uncertainties connected with correct or uncorrect modelling of diffraction were included in the systematic errors.

Track-based minimum bias at 900 GeV and 2.36 and 7 TeV in ATLAS (ATLAS_2010_S8918562)

Spires | arXiv:1012.5104

Measurements from proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of $\sqrt{s} = 0.9$, 2.36, and 7 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Events were collected using a single-arm minimum-bias trigger. The charged-particle multiplicity, its dependence on transverse momentum and pseudorapidity and the relationship between the mean transverse momentum and charged-particle multiplicity are measured. Measurements in different regions of phase-space are shown, providing diffraction-reduced measurements as well as more inclusive ones. The observed distributions are corrected to well-defined phase-space regions, using model-independent corrections.
