Low x / Forward rapidity II
- Krzysztof Golec-Biernat (Institute of Nuclear Physics, Cracow)
We describe the dynamical model of antishadowing in nuclei based on our theory of the leading twist shadowing. We also demonstrate that the data on the centrality dependence of the forward (large x) jet production off nuclei at the LHC and RHIC are consistently described as a consequence of the x-dependent color fluctuations in nucleons.
Collective behavior is often described in a hydrodynamic picture of a thermalized quark gluon plasma, created in collisions of heavy ions. Recent results from LHC regarding collisions in small collision systems, have raised the question to what degree existing models for multi parton interactions and hadronization can describe collectivity, if they are corrected to the dense environment of the...
Mapping the wave functions of heavy nuclei (and protons) over a very wide range of x and Q^2 is a major goal of heavy ion physics. Not only is the average wave function of interest but the spectrum of fluctuations is important as a boundary condition for nuclear-nuclear collisions. CMS has measured transverse energy production from 5.02 TeV p-Pb collisions over 13 units of rapidity as a...
