Title: Autocorrelation of hadrons in jets produced in heavy-ion collisions

Abstract

Autocorrelation of two pions produced in heavy-ion collisions at intermediate p{sub T} is calculated in the framework of the recombination model. The differences of the pseudorapidities and azimuthal angles of the two pions are related to the angle between two shower partons in a jet. It is shown how the autocorrelation distribution reveals the properties of the jet cone of the shower partons created by high-p{sub T} partons in hard collisions.
