Title: Polarized 3 parton production in inclusive DIS at small x

Abstract

Azimuthal angular correlations between produced hadrons/jets in high energy collisions are a sensitive probe of the dynamics of QCD at small x. Here we derive the triple differential cross section for inclusive production of 3 polarized partons in DIS at small x using the spinor helicity formalism. The target proton or nucleus is described using the Color Glass Condensate (CGC) formalism. The resulting expressions are used to study azimuthal angular correlations between produced partons in order to probe the gluon structure of the target hadron or nucleus. Finally, our analytic expressions can also be used to calculate the real part of the Next to Leading Order (NLO) corrections to di-hadron production in DIS by integrating out one of the three final state partons.

  • The A-dependence of the inclusive cross sections at large values of p/sub perpendicular/ is calculated in the framework of the quark-parton model. Good agreement with the experimental data for the ..pi../sup + -/ and K/sup +/ mesons is obtained. The possible reason for the enhancement of the nuclear effect for K/sup -/ is indicated.
  • We extend our Monte Carlo quark-parton model by introducting explicitly the transverse momenta of partons in the compound state formed by two colliding hadrons. Calculated energy dependence of the average multiplicities of stable hadrons produced in pp collisions and the p/sub T/ and y inclusive spectra are in good qualitative agreement with the data. Our results on resonance production at ..sqrt..s = 53 GeV coincide with recent CERN ISR data.
  • We argue that the collinear factorization of the fragmentation functions in high energy hadron and nuclei collisions breaks down at transverse momenta k{sub T} {le} Q{sub s}/g due to high parton densities in the colliding hadrons and/or nuclei. We calculate, at next-to-leading order in projectile parton density and to all orders in target parton density, the double-inclusive cross-section for production of a pair of gluons in the scalar J{sup PC} = 0{sup ++} channel. Using the low energy theorems of QCD we find the inclusive cross-section for {pi}-meson production.
  • We quantify uncertainties in the Monte Carlo simulation of inclusive and dijet final states, which arise from using the MC@NLO technique for matching next-to-leading order parton-level calculations and parton showers. We analyse a large variety of data from early measurements at the LHC. In regions of phase space where Sudakov logarithms dominate over high-energy effects, we observe that the main uncertainty can be ascribed to the free parameters of the parton shower. In complementary regions, the main uncertainty stems from the considerable freedom in the simulation of underlying events.
