Figure 4

The \simplekstarch \pT spectra (black dots) measured in inelastic pp collisions at (a)\sqrtS = 5.02 TeV, (b) 8 TeV, and (c) 13 TeV are compared to the distributions predicted by PYTHIA8-Monash 2013  (blue lines), PYTHIA6-Perugia 2011  (red lines), and EPOS-LHC  (black lines). Statistical and systematic uncertainties are shown with error bars and empty boxes, respectively. The ratios of the rebinned predictions to the measured distributions are reported in the bottom panels. The shaded bands represent the fractional uncertainties of the data points.
