Identified Two-particle Correlations and Quantum Number Conservations in p-p and Pb-Pb Collisions at LHC Energies

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


In this paper we continue the investigation of the effect of quantum number conservations of pions, kaons, and protons, with very high transverse momenta (up to 25 GeV/c), during parton fragmentation and hadronization in p-p and Pb-Pb collisions at LHC energies [1, 2]. The strength of the conservation effects are studied by identified two-particle correlations in Monte Carlo generated events in the mid-rapidity region (|η| < 1). The simulated p-p events were generated with PYTHIA 8 [5], using its main default settings, at √s = 200GeV, √s = 2.76TeV, √s = 7TeV, and √s = 14TeV. In parallel to this, HIJING 1.36 [6] was used to generate Pb-Pb events at √sNN = 2.76 TeV with centralities 0 - 10%, 30 - 40% and 80 - 90%. The extracted identified associated hadron spectra for charged pion, kaon, and proton show identified trigger-hadron dependent splitting between oppositely charged associated particle species in any nucleus-nucleus collisions. The Pb-Pb data exhibits a peculiar splitting pattern as a function of the transverse momentum of the associated particle pT,assoc both on the near and away side that is different from the patterns observed in p-p collisions. The splitting shows smooth evolution with collision energy and event multiplicity in p-p collisions while in Pb-Pb collisions different trend were observed for kaons and protons.
