Initial state correlations Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We point out that Bose enhancement in a hadronic wave function generically leads to correlations between produced particles. We illustrate this general phenomenon by considering particle pro-duction within the Color Glass Condensate framework. We show that the Bose enhancement of gluons in the projectile leads to azimuthal collimation of long range rapidity correlations of the produced particles, the so-called ridge correlations.
