Abstract

Azimuthal particle correlations have been extensively studied in the past at various collider energies in p-p, p-A, and A-A collisions. Hadron-correlation measurements in heavy- ion collisions have mainly focused on studies of collective (flow) effects at low-pT and parton energy loss via jet quenching in the high-pT regime. This was usually done without event-byevent particle identification. In this paper, we present two-particle correlations with identified trigger hadrons and identified associated hadrons at mid-rapidity in Monte Carlo generated events. The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of quantum number conservation and the flavour balance during parton fragmentation and hadronization. The simulated p-p events were generated with PYTHIA 6.4 with the Perugia-0 tune 7 TeV. HIJING was used to generate 0 - 10% central Pb-Pb events at 2.76 TeV. We found that the extracted identified associated hadron spectra for charged pion, kaon, and proton show identified trigger-hadron dependent splitting. Moreover, the identified trigger-hadron dependent correlation functions vary in different pT bins, which may show the presence of collective/nuclear effects.
