Description

Experiments at RHIC and the LHC have revealed anisotropic multi-particle azimuthal correlations in high multiplicity pp and pA collisions. These correlations are long range in rapidity (resp. log 1/x) and extend to semi-hard transverse momenta of several GeV. I discuss first steps towards understanding azimuthal correlations from small-x QCD, and the information they could provide about anisotropic gluon distributions at small x.
