Simulation of momentum correlations with the HIJING model
We study predictions of momentum correlations in heavy ion collisions based on the Heavy Ion Jet Interaction Integrator (HIJING). This work is part of a research program designed to establish whether dynamical effects other than viscosity can induce broadening of the C correlation introduced by Gavin et al. Specifically, two million Au+Au collisions at s = 200GeV were generated. A number correlation R2 and a similar correlation with momenta information C where analyzed. We did observe an increase in the width of R2 and C with the respect to the evolution from most peripheral to central event classes. Additionally we did not observe significant differences in the qualitative features of R2 and C. Further work must be done to investigate some outlying data points in this study. ^
