 Centrality dependence of the pseudorapidity density distribution for charged particles in Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV / Adam, Jaroslav (Prague, Tech. U.) ; Adamova, Dagmar (Rez, Nucl. Phys. Inst.) ; Aggarwal, Madan Mohan (Panjab U.) ; Aglieri Rinella, Gianluca (CERN) ; Agnello, Michelangelo (Turin Polytechnic ; INFN, Turin) ; Agrawal, Neelima (Indian Inst. Tech., Mumbai) ; Ahammed, Zubayer (Calcutta, VECC) ; Ahmad, Shakeel (Aligarh Muslim U.) ; Ahn, Sang Un (KISTI, Daejeon) ; Aiola, Salvatore (Yale U.) et al. /ALICE We present the charged-particle pseudorapidity density in Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{\mathrm{NN}}}}=5.02\,\mathrm{Te\kern-.25exV}$ in centrality classes measured by ALICE. The measurement covers a wide pseudorapidity range from $-3.5$ to $5$, which is sufficient for reliable estimates of the total number of charged particles produced in the collisions.

 Insight into particle production mechanisms via angular correlations of identified particles in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration, CERN /ALICE Two-particle angular correlations were measured in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV. The analysis was carried out for pions, kaons, protons, and lambdas, for all particle/anti-particle combinations in the pair. [...] CERN-EP-2016-322.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 17.
