Abstract

Pseudorapidity (η) and Transverse momentum (pT) distributions of charged particles produced in proton-proton (pp) collisions at √s = 13 TeV are studied. Transverse momentum distributions of charged particles are considered in the Pseudorapidity region of |η| < 0.8 and in the transverse momentum range of 0 < pT < 20 GeV/c. EPOS1.99, EPOS-LHC and QGSJETII-04 models are used to perform simulations. In order to check the validity of simulations performed using these Monte-Carlo event generators, the results are compared to the measurements of ALICE experiment at the LHC CERN. For the pT distribution, the EPOS1.99 and QGSJET underpredict the experimental data while the EPOS-LHC model reproduced the distribution very well. EPOS-LHC model describes the experimental data very well as compared to the other two models for the ratio of pT spectra of charged particles at √s = 13 TeV to 7 TeV. EPOS-LHC also describes the pseudorapidity distribution very well while the EPOS 1.99 and QGSJETII-04 underpredict and overpredict the distribution respectively.
