The measurement of two-particle angular correlations is a powerful tool to study jet quenching in a pT region inaccessible by direct jet identification. In these measurements pseudorapidity (Δη) and azimuthal (Δφ) differences are used to extract the shape of the near-side peak formed by particles associated with a higher pT trigger particle (1<pT,trig<8 GeV/c). A combined fit of the near-side peak and long-range correlations is applied to the data allowing the extraction of the centrality evolution of the peak shape in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN=2.76 TeV. A significant broadening of the peak in the Δη direction at low pT is found from peripheral to central collisions, which vanishes above 4 GeV/c, while in the Δφ direction the peak is almost independent of centrality. For the 10% most central collisions and 1<pT,assoc<2 GeV/c, 1<pT,trig<3 GeV/c a novel feature is observed: a depletion develops around the center of the peak. The results are compared to pp collisions at the same center of mass energy and ampt model simulations. The comparison to the investigated models suggests that the broadening and the development of the depletion is connected to the strength of radial and longitudinal flow. ...

Evolution of eccentricities induced by geometrical and quantum fluctuations in proton-nucleus collisions Demirci, S.; Guerrero-Rodríguez, P. (American Physical Society (APS), 2023)We compute the azimuthal eccentricities arising from initial stage fluctuations in high energy proton-nucleus collisions at proper times τ≥0+. We consider two sources of fluctuations, namely the geometrical structure of ...

Evolution of the longitudinal and azimuthal structure of the near-side jet peak in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV ALICE Collaboration (American Physical Society, 2017)In two-particle angular correlation measurements, jets give rise to a near-side peak, formed by particles associated to a higher-pT trigger particle. Measurements of these correlations as a function of pseudorapidity (η) ...

Multiplicity and transverse momentum evolution of charge-dependent correlations in pp, p–Pb, and Pb–Pb collisions at the LHC ALICE Collaboration (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016)We report on two-particle charge-dependent correlations in pp, p–Pb, and Pb–Pb collisions as a function of the pseudorapidity and azimuthal angle difference, η and ϕ respectively. These correlations are studied using ...
