p-Pb collisions at LHC

p-Pb collisions in ALICE

Purpose

To give several points of view on the importance of p-Pb collisions, an essential control experiment, carried out in February 2013 at the LHC and in the ALICE dedicated heavy ion experiment. These accounts are of interest to physics students, the heavy ion community, accelerator physicists and the general public with knowledge of and interest in large experiments.

Information

A collection of 7 views on the p-Pb run from experts with different roles (theoretical, experimental and machine physicists) who were closely involved on both the LHC and the ALICE side. The physics motivation for p-Pb collisions at the LHC is described as well the challenges involved for the production of the beams and their delivery to the experiments and, on the detector side, the preparations needed to absorb the high rates of the p-Pb collisions.
