 Building a large-area GEM-based readout chamber for the upgrade of the ALICE TPC / Gasik, Piotr (Munich, Tech. U.) A large Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is the main device for tracking and charged-particle identification in the ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC. [...] arXiv:1606.04147. - 2016. - 4 p. Preprint

 Higher harmonic flow coefficients of identified hadrons in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}$ = 2.76 TeV / ALICE, CERN /ALICE The elliptic, triangular, quadrangular and pentagonal anisotropic flow coefficients for π± , K ± and p/pbar in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN )= 2.76 TeV were measured with the ALICE detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The results were obtained with the Scalar Product method, correlating the identified hadrons with reference particles from a different pseudorapidity region.

 Open heavy-flavour and quarkonium production in Pb-Pb and p-Pb collisions measured by the ALICE detector at the LHC / Caffarri, Davide (CERN) Open heavy-flavour and quarkonia measurements are important tools to study the hot and dense partonic medium formed in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions.

 Multiplicity-dependent enhancement of strange and multi-strange hadron production in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV / ALICE, CERN /ALICE The yields of strange and multi-strange hadrons are measured at midrapidity in proton-proton (pp) collisions at s = 7 TeV as a function of the charged-particle multiplicity density (dNch/dη). The production rate of strange particles increases faster than that of non-strange hadrons, leading to an enhancement of strange particles relative to pions, similar to that found in nucleus-nucleus collisions as well as in proton-nucleus collisions at the LHC.

 Recent results on anisotropic flow and related phenomena in ALICE / Bilandzic, Ante (Munich, Tech. U.) The exploration of properties of an extreme state of matter, the Quark--Gluon Plasma, has broken new ground with the recent Run 2 operation of the Large Hadron Collider with heavy-ion collisions at the highest energy to date.

 Elliptic flow of electrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays at mid-rapidity in Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}= 2.76$ TeV / ALICE Collaboration The elliptic flow of electrons from heavy-flavour hadron decays at mid-rapidity ($|y| < 0.7$) is measured in Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}= 2.76$ TeV with ALICE at the LHC. The particle azimuthal distribution with respect to the reaction plane can be parametrized with a Fourier expansion, where the second coefficient ($v_2$) represents the elliptic flow.
