Forward-backward multiplicity correlations in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN)=200 GeV
International Journal of Modern Physics E-Nuclear Physics 16,10 (2007) 3371-3378;
The study of correlations among particles produced in different rapidity regions may provide understanding of the mechanisms of particle production. Correlations that extend over a longer range are observed in hadron-hadron interactions only at higher energies. Results for short and long-range multiplicity correlations (Forward- Backward) are presented for Au+Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV. The growth of long range correlations are observed as a function of the pseudorapidity gap in central Au+Au collisions. The Dual Parton model and Color Glass Condensate phenomenology have been explored to understand the origin of long range correlations.
