 ${\rm W^\pm}$-boson production in p–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 8.16$ TeV and Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE The production of the ${\rm W^\pm}$ bosons measured in p–Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon–nucleon collision $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 8.16$ TeV and Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV with ALICE at the LHC is presented. The ${\rm W^\pm}$ bosons are measured via their muonic decay channel, with the muon reconstructed in the pseudorapidity region $-4 < \eta_{\rm lab} < -2.5$ with transverse momentum $p_{\rm T}> 10$ GeV/$c$.

 ALICE luminosity determination for Pb$-$Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}} = 5.02$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration Luminosity determination within the ALICE experiment is based on the measurement, in van der Meer scans, of the cross sections for visible processes involving one or more detectors (visible cross sections). In 2015 and 2018, the Large Hadron Collider provided Pb$-$Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV.

 Photoproduction of low-$p_{\rm T}$ J/$\psi$ from peripheral to central Pb$-$Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration An excess of J/$\psi$ yield at very low transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T} < 0.3$ GeV/$c$), originating from coherent photoproduction, is observed in peripheral and semicentral hadronic Pb$-$Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV. The measurement is performed with the ALICE detector via the dimuon decay channel at forward rapidity ($2.5 2022-03-28 11:02  Measurement of the production of charm jets tagged with${\rm D^0}$mesons in pp collisions at$\sqrt{s}$= 5.02 and 13 TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration The measurement of the production of charm jets, identified by the presence of a${\rm D^0}$meson in the jet constituents, is presented in proton–proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of$\sqrt{s}$= 5.02 and 13 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC.

The dielectron production is studied with the ALICE detector at midrapidity ($|\eta_{\rm e}| < 0.8$) as a function of invariant mass ($0.4 \leq m_{\rm ee} < 2.7$GeV/$c^2$) in the 50$-$70% and 70$-$90% centrality classes for$p_{\rm T,ee} < 0.1$GeV/$c$, and as a function of$p_{\rm T,ee}$in three$m_{\rm ee}$intervals in the most peripheral Pb$-$Pb collisions.

 Measurement of beauty-strange meson production in Pb$-$Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV via non-prompt $\mathrm{D_s}^{+}$ mesons / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Collaboration The production yields of non-prompt $\mathrm{D_s}^{+}$ mesons, namely $\mathrm{D_s}^{+}$ mesons from beauty-hadron decays, were measured for the first time as a function of the transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T}$) at midrapidity ($|y|<0.5$) in central and semi-central Pb$-$Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV with the ALICE experiment at the LHC. The $\mathrm{D_s}^{+}$ mesons and their charge conjugates were reconstructed from the hadronic decay channel $\mathrm{D_s}^{+} \to \phi\pi^+$, with $\phi \to {\rm K}^-{\rm K}^+$, in the $4 < p_{\rm T}<36$ GeV/$c$ and $2 < p_{\rm T}<24$ GeV/$c$ intervals for the 0$-$10% and 30$-$50% centrality classes, respectively.
