Abstract

The study of the Quark-Gluon Plasma created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions at the CERN-LHC is complemented by reference measurements in proton-lead (p--Pb) and proton-proton (pp) collisions, where the effects of multiple-parton interactions and hadronization beyond independent string fragmentation can be investigated. In these proceedings, we present a Bayesian unfolding procedure to reconstruct the correlation between transverse momentum ($ p_{\mathrm{T}}$) spectra of charged particles and the corresponding charged-particle multiplicities $N_{\mathrm{ch}}$. The unfolded spectra are presented in single multiplicity ($\Delta N_{\mathrm{ch}}$ = 1) bins and are used to derive moments of the $p_{\mathrm{T}} $ distributions. We illustrate the unfolding procedure of the $ p_{\mathrm{T}} $ spectra with a Monte Carlo simulation for pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{\mathrm{s}}= 5.02$ TeV.
