Forward particle correlations in the color glass condensate    [PDF]

T. Lappi, H. Mäntysaari
Multiparticle correlations, such as forward dihadron correlations in pA collisions, are an important probe of the strong color fields that dominate the initial stages of a heavy ion collision. We describe recent progress in understanding two-particle correlations in the dilute-dense system, e.g. at forward rapidity in deuteron-gold collisions. This requires evaluating higher point Wilson line correlators from the JIMWLK equation, which we find well described by a Gaussian approximation. We then calculate the dihadron correlation, including both the "elastic" and "inelastic" contributions, and show that our result includes the double parton scattering contribution.
