Mass ordering of spectra from fragmentation of saturated gluon states in high multiplicity proton-proton collisions

26 Sep 2016 Schenke Bjoern Schlichting Soeren Tribedy Prithwish Venugopalan Raju

The mass ordering of mean transverse momentum $\left<p_T\right>$ and of the Fourier harmonic coefficient $v_2 (p_T)$ of azimuthally anisotropic particle distributions in high energy hadron collisions is often interpreted as evidence for the hydrodynamic flow of the matter produced. We investigate an alternative initial state interpretation of this pattern in high multiplicity proton-proton collisions at the LHC... (read more)
