Plenary Correlations and fluctuations Correlations & fluctuations


Jan Fiete Grosse-Oetringhaus (CERN)


The talk presents results from hadron correlations in PbPb collisions at 2.76 TeV with ALICE. Untriggered di-hadron correlations studies are shown which provide a map of the bulk correlation structures in heavy-ion collisions. The long-range correlation region is further studied by triggered correlations which addresses the dependence on trigger and associated pT. The measured correlation functions are decomposed with a multi-parameter fit and into Fourier components. The jet yield modification factor I_AA extracted using triggered correlations is presented.
