Abstract:
The production of different particle species is recently measured in $Pb-Pb$ collisions by the ALICE experiment at $\sqrt{s}=7 $TeV. This motivates the use of various bosons and baryons measured at lower center-of-mass energies in comparing their ratios to the hadron resonance (HRG) gas model and PYTHIA event generator. It is found that the particle-to-antiparticle ratios are perfectly reproduce by means of HRG and PYTHIA at RHIC and LHC energies. The kaon-to-pion and proton-to-pion ratios are entirely overestimated by the HRG model. The PYTHIA event generator obviously underestimates the kaon-to-pion ratio and simultaneously reproduces the proton-to-pion ratio, almost perfectly, especially at LHC energy. While matter-to-antimatter and non-strange abundances are partly in line with predictions from the HRG model, it is found in the ALICE experiment that the measured baryon ratios are suppressed by a factor of $\sim1.5$. The strange abundances are overestimated in the HRG model.

Abstract:
I will review RHIC data with respect to the intriguing possibility that the hadron production mechanism in the produced partonic medium might be different than in vacuum. I will use the measurements of collective features, such as flow and quenching of identified particles, to show that different regions of the particle momentum spectrum are likely populated through different mechanisms, and that the medium seems to play an important role in hadronization. Finally I will address the question whether the different initial conditions achievable in heavy ion collisions at LHC energies, compared to RHIC, might affect the properties of the deconfined quark-gluon phase and its hadronization to baryonic matter.

Abstract:
We study the charged particle and transverse energy production mechanism from AGS, SPS, RHIC to LHC energies in the framework of nucleon and quark participants. At RHIC and LHC energies, the number of nucleons-normalized charged particle and transverse energy density in pseudorapidity, which shows a monotonic rise with centrality, turns out to be an almost centrality independent scaling behaviour when normalized to the number of participant quarks. A universal function which is a combination of logarithmic and power-law, describes well the charged particle and transverse energy production both at nucleon and quark participant level for the whole range of collision energies. Energy dependent production mechanisms are discussed both for nucleonic and partonic level. Predictions are made for the pseudorapidity densities of transverse energy, charged particle multiplicity and their ratio (the barometric observable, $\frac{dE_{\rm{T}}/d\eta}{dN_{\rm{ch}}/d\eta} ~\equiv \frac{E_{\rm{T}}}{N_{\rm{ch}}}$) at mid-rapidity for Pb+Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}}=5.5$ TeV. A comparison with models based on gluon saturation and statistical hadron gas is made for the energy dependence of $\frac{E_{\rm{T}}}{N_{\rm{ch}}}$.

Abstract:
The parton and hadron cascade model PACIAE based on PYTHIA was utilized to systematically investigate the strange particle production in pp collisions at the RHIC and LHC energies. Taking the mechanism of reduction of the strange quark suppression into account the STAR and ALICE data of strange particle production in pp collisions are well reproduced. It turned out that the K/{\pi} ratio as a function of reaction energy in pp collisions shows slightly increasing from sqrt(s)=0.2 to 0.9 TeV and then turning to saturation.

Abstract:
The model to simulate rescattering and partonic energy loss in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions is presented. The full heavy ion event is obtained as a superposition of a soft hydro-type state and hard multi-jets. This model is capable of reproducing main features of the jet quenching pattern at RHIC, and is applied to probe jet quenching in various novel channels at LHC.

Abstract:
We analyze recent data on particle production yields obtained in p-p collisions at SPS and RHIC energies within the statistical model. We apply the model formulated in the canonical ensemble and focus on strange particle production. We introduce different methods to account for strangeness suppression effects and discuss their phenomenological verification. We show that at RHIC the midrapidity data on strange and multistrange particle multiplicity can be successfully described by the canonical statistical model with and without an extra suppression effects. On the other hand, SPS data integrated over the full phase-space require an additional strangeness suppression factor that is beyond the conventional canonical model. This factor is quantified by the strangeness saturation parameter or strangeness correlation volume. Extrapolating all relevant thermal parameters from SPS and RHIC to LHC energy we present predictions of the statistical model for particle yields in p-p collisions at sqrt(s) = 14TeV. We discuss the role and the influence of a strangeness correlation volume on particle production in p-p collisions at LHC.

Abstract:
We investigate the angular correlation between pions and photons produced in deuteron-gold collisions at RHIC and proton-lead collisions at LHC using the Color Glass Condensate formalism and make predictions for the dependence of the production cross section on the angle between the pion and photon at different rapidities and transverse momenta. Measuring this dependence would shed further light on the role of high gluon density and saturation dynamics at RHIC and LHC.

Abstract:
We present results and predictions for the nuclear modification of the differential cross sections for inclusive light hadron and prompt photon production in minimum bias d+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 200$ GeV and minimum bias p+Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 5$ TeV at RHIC and LHC, respectively. Our calculations combine the leading order perturbative QCD formalism with cold nuclear matter effects that arise from the elastic, inelastic and coherent multiple scattering of partons in large nuclei. We find that a theoretical approach that includes the isospin effect, Cronin effect, cold nuclear matter energy loss and dynamical shadowing can describe the RHIC d+Au data rather well. The LHC p+Pb predictions will soon be confronted by new experimental results to help clarify the magnitude and origin of cold nuclear matter effects and facilitate precision dense QCD matter tomography.

Abstract:
In a previous paper (arXiv:1011.1895), we showed that saturation models, constrained by e+p HERA data on inclusive and diffractive cross-sections, are in good agreement with p+p data at LHC in the soft sector. Particularly impressive was the agreement of saturation models with the multiplicity distribution as a function of $n_{\rm ch.}$. In this paper, we extend these studies further and consider the agreement of these models with data on bulk distributions in A+A collisions. We compare our results to data on central and forward particle production in d+Au collisions at RHIC and make predictions for inclusive distributions in p+Pb collisions at the LHC.

Abstract:
We present a calculation of Pi, D and B mesons production at RHIC and LHC energies based upon the KKT model of gluon saturation. We discuss dependence of the nuclear modification factor on rapidity and transverse momentum.
