Abstract

We show that several effects considered nuclear effects are not nuclear in the sense that they do not only occur in nucleus–nucleus and hadron–nucleus collisions but, as well, they are present in hadron–hadron (proton–proton) collisions. The matter creation mechanism in hh, hA and AA collision is always the same. The p T suppression of particles produced in large multiplicity events compared to low multiplicity events, the elliptic flow and the Cronin effect are predicted to occur in pp collisions at LHC energies as a consequence of the high density partonic medium obtained.
