 Measurement of Quarkonium Polarization to Probe QCD at the LHC / Knunz, Valentin Karl (Vienna, OAW) ; Wulz, Claudia (dir.) (Vienna, OAW) ; Strauss, Josef (dir.) (Vienna, OAW) With the ﬁrst proton-proton collisions in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERNin 2010, a new era in high energy physics has been initiated. The data collected bythe various experiments open up the possibility to study standard model processes withhigh precision, in new areas of phase space.

 Etude de la réaction $\pi^{-}$p $\to$ $\pi^{-}$ $\pi^{o}$p à 2,77 GeV/c pour de faibles impulsions du proton diffusé. Application de la méthode d'extrapolation de Chew et Low à la diffusion élastique $\pi^{-}$ $\pi$° / Baton, Jean-Pierre Dans le cas actuel de nos connaissances sur les interactions fortes, il peut paraître inutile d'entreprendre une nouvelle expérience du type pour vérifier la validité du modèle périphérique exposé par CHEW et LOW en 1959 et, cela , en toute rigueur, à l'étude de la diffusion pion pion [...] CEA-R-3543. - 56 p.
