 Isospin dependence of electromagnetic transition strengths among an isobaric triplet / Boso, A (Padua U. ; INFN, Padua ; Teddington, Natl. Phys. Lab) ; Milne, S A (York U., England) ; Bentley, M A (York U., England) ; Recchia, F (Padua U. ; INFN, Padua) ; Lenzi, S M (Padua U. ; INFN, Padua) ; Rudolph, D (Lund U.) ; Labiche, M (Daresbury) ; Pereira-Lopez, X (York U., England) ; Afara, S (King Saud U.) ; Ameil, F (Darmstadt, GSI) et al. Electric quadrupole matrix elements, Mp , for the Jπ=2+→0+ , ΔT=0 , T=1 transitions across the A=46 isobaric multiplet 46 Cr- 46 V- 46 Ti have been measured at GSI with the FRS-LYCCA-AGATA setup. This allows direct insight into the isospin purity of the states of interest by testing the linearity of Mp with respect to Tz . [...] 2019 - 6 p. - Published in : Phys. Lett. B 797 (2019) 134835

 First benchmarking of the BIANCA model for cell survival prediction in a clinical hadron therapy scenario / Carante, M P (INFN, Pavia ; Pavia U.) ; Aricò, G (CERN) ; Ferrari, A (CERN) ; Kozlowska, W (CERN ; Med. U. of Vienna, Spitalgasse) ; Mairani, A (HITS, Heidelberg ; CNAO, Milan) ; Ballarini, F (INFN, Pavia ; Pavia U.) In the framework of RBE modelling for hadron therapy, the BIANCA biophysical model was extended to O-ions and was used to construct a radiobiological database describing the survival of V79 cells as a function of ion type (1  ⩽  Z  ⩽  8) and energy. This database allowed performing RBE predictions in very good agreement with experimental data. [...] 2019 - 9 p. - Published in : Phys. Med. Biol. 64 (2019) 215008 Fulltext: PDF;

 Studying electronic properties in GaN without electrical contacts using $\gamma$-$\gamma$ vs $e^{−}$-$\gamma$ Perturbed Angular Correlations / Barbosa, M B (Porto U.) ; Correia, J G (Lisbon, IST ; CERN) ; Lorenz, K (Lisbon, IST) ; Vianden, R (Bonn U., HISKP) ; Araújo, J P (Porto U.) The potential use of combined $e^{−}$-$\gamma$ vs $\gamma$-$\gamma$ Perturbed Angular Correlations (PAC) experiments as a possible alternative to study electronic properties of materials and/or samples where Hall effect measurements are difficult to perform due to low-quality ohmic contacts is here demonstrated using Si- and Zn-doped GaN samples as a showcase example. To do so, the lattice site of implanted$^{181}$Hf/$^{181}$Ta and the recombination of Ta ionized and excited electronic states were studied as a function of temperature and sample doping in GaN.

 The ALICE analysis framework for LHC Run 3 / Berzano, Dario (CERN ; INFN, Italy) ; Deckers, Roel (CERN) ; Grigoras, Costin (CERN) ; Floris, Michele (CERN) ; Hristov, Peter (CERN) ; Krzewicki, Mikolaj (CERN ; Frankfurt U., FIAS ; Goethe U., Frankfurt (main)) ; Zimmermann, Markus (CERN) The ALICE experiment at the LHC (CERN) is currently developing a new software framework designed for Run 3: detector and software will have to cope with Pb–Pb collision rates 100 times higher than today, leading to the combination of core Online-Offline operations into a single framework called O$^2$. The analysis code is expected to run on a few large Analysis Facilities counting 20k cores and sustainin ga 100 GB/s throughput: this requires a conjoint effort between the definition of the data format, the configuration of the Analysis Facilities and the development of the Analysis Framework.

 Software training for the next generation of physicists: joint experience of LHCb and ALICE / Berzano, Dario (CERN ; INFN, Italy) ; Burr, Chris (U. Manchester (main)) ; Beck, Hans (Unlisted, DE) ; Bellée, Violaine (Ecole Polytechnique, Lausanne) ; Bertens, Redmer Alexander (U. Tennessee, Knoxville) ; Puig Navarro, Albert (U. Zurich (main)) The need for good software training is essential in the HEP community. Unfortunately, current training is non-homogeneous and the definition of a common baseline is unclear, making it difficult for newcomers to proficiently join large collaborations such as ALICE or LHCb.

 New developments in the ROOT fitting classes / Valls, Xavier (CERN ; Jaume I U., Castellon) ; Moneta, Lorenzo (CERN) ; Amadio, Guilherme (CERN) ; Tsang, Arthur (Stanford U.) The ROOT Mathematical and Statistical libraries have been recently improved both to increase their performance and to facilitate the modelling of parametric functions that can be used for performing maximum likelihood fits to data sets to estimate parameters and their uncertainties.First, we report on the new functionalities introduced in ROOT’s TFormula and TF1 classes to build these models in a convenient way for the users. We show how function objects, represented in ROOT by TF1 classes, can be used as probability density functions and how they can be combined together—via an addition operator—to perform extended likelihood fit of several normalized components.

 Writing ROOT data in parallel with TBufferMerger / Amadio, Guilherme (CERN) ; Canal, Philippe (Fermilab) ; Guiraud, Enrico (CERN) ; Piparo, Danilo (CERN) Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) produce tens of petabytes of new data in ROOT format per year that need to be processed and analysed. In the next decade, following the planned upgrades of the LHC and its detectors, this data production rate is expected to increase at least ten-fold.
