Two-particle correlations from RHIC to LHC, a Monte Carlo approach

Special Article - Young Scientists Paper


The aim of this work is to extend to LHC the results observed for two-particle correlations at RHIC, especially in terms of jet quenching effects. In this study a parton quenching model developed in the BDMPS-Z-SW framework is considered and implemented as an afterburner for PYTHIA and HIJING. A simplified parametrization of the quenching mechanism at the parton level is included in one of the most popular Monte Carlo event generators for AA collisions, HIJING. The simulation method, tuned on the RHIC data, is then used to make predictions for the LHC energy regime in order to probe the scenario we will study in the ALICE experiment.
