Abstract

We calculate pseudorapidity (η) asymmetry in pA and dA collisions in a pQCD-improved parton model. With the calculations tuned to describe existing spectra from pp collisions and asymmetric systems at midrapidity and large rapidities at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider energies, we investigate the roles of nuclear shadowing and multiple scattering on the observed asymmetry. Using this framework, we make predictions for pseudorapidity asymmetries at high pT and large η in a wide range of energies up to those of the Large Hadron Collider.
