Volume 297 - XXV International Workshop on Deep-Inelastic Scattering and Related Subjects (DIS2017) - WG4 Hadronic and Electroweak Observables
Transverse momentum spectra, $d^2\sigma/(d\eta dp_T^2)$, of charged hadron production in $pp$-collisions are considered in terms of a recently introduced two component model. The shapes of the particle distributions vary as a function of c.m.s. energy in the collision and the measured pseudorapidity interval. In order to extract predictions on the double-differential cross-sections $d^2\sigma/(d\eta dp_T^2)$ of hadron production for future LHC-measurements the different sets of available experimental data have been used in this study. Finally, possible interpretation of the observed phenomena is presented.
