Title: Azimuthal Correlations of Forward Dihadrons in d+Au Collisions at RHIC in the Color Glass Condensate

Abstract

We present a good description of recent experimental data on forward dihadron azimuthal correlations measured in deuteron-gold collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), where monojet production has been observed. Our approach is based on the color glass condensate theory for the small-x degrees of freedom of the nuclear wave function, including the use of nonlinear evolution equations with running QCD coupling. Our analysis provides further evidence for the presence of saturation effects in RHIC data.
