We present a study of the inclusive charged- particle transverse momentum ( pT ) spectra as a function of charged-particle multiplicity density at mid-pseudorapidity, d Nch /dη, in pp collisions at √s = 5.02 and 13 TeV covering the kinematic range |η| < 0.8 and 0.15 < pT < 20 GeV/c. The results are presented for events with at least one charged particle in |η| < 1 (INEL > 0). The pT spectra are reported for two multiplicity estimators covering different pseudo- rapidity regions. The pT spectra normalized to that for INEL> 0 show little energy dependence. Moreover, the high-pT yields of charged particles increase faster than the charged-particle multiplicity density. The average pT as a function of multiplicity and transverse spherocity is reported for pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV. For low- (high-) spherocity events, corresponding to jet-like (isotropic) events, the aver- age pT is higher (smaller) than that measured in INEL > 0 pp collisions. Within uncertainties, the functional form of ⟨ pT ⟩( Nch ) is not affected by the spherocity selection. While EPOS LHC gives a good description of many features of data, PYTHIA overestimates the average pT in jet-like events.

Abstract

We present a study of the inclusive charged- particle transverse momentum ( pT ) spectra as a function of charged-particle multiplicity density at mid-pseudorapidity, d Nch /dη, in pp collisions at √s = 5.02 and 13 TeV covering the kinematic range |η| < 0.8 and 0.15 < pT < 20 GeV/c. The results are presented for events with at least one charged particle in |η| < 1 (INEL > 0). The pT spectra are reported for two multiplicity estimators covering different pseudo- rapidity regions. The pT spectra normalized to that for INEL> 0 show little energy dependence. Moreover, the high-pT yields of charged particles increase faster than the charged-particle multiplicity density. The average pT as a function of multiplicity and transverse spherocity is reported for pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV. For low- (high-) spherocity events, corresponding to jet-like (isotropic) events, the aver- age pT is higher (smaller) than that measured in INEL > 0 pp collisions. Within uncertainties, the functional form of ⟨ pT ⟩( Nch ) is not affected by the spherocity selection. While EPOS LHC gives a good description of many features of data, PYTHIA overestimates the average pT in jet-like events.
