Title: Single-transverse spin asymmetry in dijet correlations at hadron colliders

Abstract

We present a phenomenological study of the single-transverse spin asymmetry in azimuthal correlations of two jets produced nearly 'back-to-back' in pp collisions at RHIC. We properly take into account the initial- and final-state interactions of partons that can generate this asymmetry in QCD hard-scattering. Using distribution functions fitted to the existing single-spin data, we make predictions for various weighted single-spin asymmetries in dijet correlations that are now readily testable at RHIC.
