Long-range correlations in proton-lead collisions at sqrt{s_NN} = 5.02
TeV from ATLAS

Jiangyong Jia, for the ATLAS Collaboration
Two-particle correlations in relative azimuth $\Delta\phi$ and relative pseudorapidity $\Delta\eta$ are studied in p+Pb collisions at sqrt{s_NN}=5.02 TeV with the ATLAS detector at LHC. The correlations are studied as a function of charged particle pT and the collision E_T^fcal summed over 3.1 < eta < 4.9 in the direction of the Pb beam. After subtracting the known sources of correlations such as dijets, resonances and momentum conservation, estimated using events with low E_T^fcal, the resulting correlations exhibit a $\Delta\phi$ modulation that is flat in $\Delta\eta$ out to $|\Delta\eta|=5$. The modulation is comparable in magnitude to similar modulations observed in heavy ion collisions, and can be described by a $1+2c_2\cos2\Delta\phi+2c_3\cos3\Delta\phi$ function over 0.5View original: http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.2971
