Description

In this work we have used the Color Glass Condensate (CGC) formalism of forward particle production to describe the transverse momentum spectra of charged particles in proton-lead collisions at the LHC. We have also investigated the rapidity dependence of the average transverse momentum, $ < p_{T} > $, and the so called scaling variable, $ < \tau = p^{2}_{T}/Q^{2}_{s} > $, where $Q_{s}$ represents the saturation scale of these processes. We compute the ratios of these quantities at a given rapidity $y$ to the value at $y = 0$, going from $y = 0$ towards the proton fragmentation region. Our analysis, based on (gluon) saturation and geometrical scaling, shows that these ratios decrease strongly with $y$ (above midrapidities) and decrease slightly with the energy. We briefly discuss the implications of our results and present predictions for the forthcoming LHC data.
