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

Research output: Conference 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.
