Measurement of the very forward energy in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV with the CMS experiment and implications for hadronic interaction models

Baur, Sebastian

The very forward calorimeter of the CMS experiment CASTOR measures the largest energy densities accessible at the LHC and is a unique tool to study soft multiparticle production relevant for the underlying event and air shower development. Within this work, the very forward collision energy is measured in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV. The results are given in terms of the differential production cross section and as a function of the charged particle multiplicity at central rapidity. The data are furthermore used to derive implications on hadronic interaction models.
