The Institute will get processing power from HADRON that's far more affordable and powerful than that offered by cloud computing platforms such as IBM Watson, operating about 10x faster and 90%+ lower processing costs.
While the Large Hadron Collider is able to produce up to 1 billion proton-proton collisions per second, the HL-LHC will increase this number, referred to by physicists as luminosity, by a factor of between five and seven, allowing about 10 times more data to be accumulated between 2026 and 2036.
In this paper, we attempt to reproduce the particle ratios and to study their correlations and the energy dependence in the hadron gas (HG) scenario by using our phenomenological boost invariant unified statistical thermal freeze-out model (USTFM) [1, 13-17] which assumes that at freeze-out all the hadrons in the hadron gas resulting from a high energy nuclear collision follow an equilibrium distribution.
In this situation the free quarks disappear, they become condensed in the hadrons. So the role of the potential is reducing the number of free quarks.
