    Angular correlations as an experimental tool to probe hadron collisions
    Malgorzata Janik - Warszaw University of Technology


    Abstract
    Two-particle angular correlations are a robust tool which allows the exploration of the underlying physics phenomena of particle production in collisions of both protons and heavy ions by studying the distributions of angles in Delta(eta)-Delta(phi) space (where Delta(eta) is the pseudorapidity difference and Delta(phi) is the azimuthal angle difference between two particles). These correlations open up the possibility to study a number of mechanisms simultaneously. Many phenomena, including mini-jets, elliptic flow, Bose-Einstein correlations, resonance decays, conservation laws, are sources of correlations. Each one produces a characteristic distribution in Delta(eta)-Delta(phi) space and contributes to the final shape of the correlation function. In this talk I will present an overview of two-particle angular correlation measurements and their interpretation from pp, pA and AA collisions, including latest results from LHC experiments.

    Controversial Phenomena in Collider Data and the Five Sigma Criterion in high-energy physics
    Tommaso Dorigo - INFN Padova


    Abstract
    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The p < 0.000029% criterion used in high-energy and astroparticle physics does not appear adequate to cover all experimental situations. The seminar will start with a short history of anomalies found in HEP data and their resolution, and then focus on the statistical problem of defining a proper discovery level for new phenomena and on the non-trivial issues it entails.
