III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi Saturation scale in nuclei [D.Kharzeev, E.Levin, M.Nardi] [D.Kharzeev, E.Levin, M.Nardi] Consider a nucleus or hadron interacting with an external probe, exchanging Q Transverse area of a parton ~ 1/Q 2 Cross section parton-probe : ~ s /Q 2 If many partons interact : S~N parton In a nucleus : N A =N parton A [ N parton = xG(x,Q 2 ) ] The parton density saturates when S~ R A 2 Saturation scale : Q s 2 ~ s (Q s 2 )N A / R A 2 ~A 1/3 At saturation N A is proportional to 1/ s Q s 2 is proportional to the (transverse) density of participating nucleons n A =N A / R A 2 ; larger for heavy nuclei. N A ~ Q s 2 / s (Q s 2 )

III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi Color Glass Condensate Classical effective theory : high density limit of QCD color : partons are colored glass : they evolve slowly compared to their natural time-scale condensate : their density is proportional to the inverse of the coupling constant, typical of a Bose condensate.

7
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi Hadron production from the CGC Hadron multiplicities can be described in a parton saturation model, based on the Color Glass Condensate theory. In particular : Au-Au and d-Au collisions at RHIC, √s NN =20÷200 GeV Pb-Pb and p-Pb collisions at LHC, √s NN = 5500 GeV – total multiplicity – centrality dependence – rapidity dependence

8
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi J/ production The production mechanism of J/ in nuclear collisions at RHIC energies is different from that in pp collisions, because of gluon saturation in the nucleus. In p-A: at forward y more suppression at backward y weak enhancement

9
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi m c > QCD perturbative QCD, but non-perturbative effects are not negligible In A-A collisions: J/ suppression is a signature of QGP formation it is important to understand the production mechanism. At RHIC : experimental data on hadron multiplicity can be explained by CGC, parton (gluon) saturation in the nuclear wave function. Q s 2 (x 2 ) >> QCD. For heavy quarks : Q s < m : Q production is incoherent, pQCD Q s > m : Q production is coherent, the projectile interacts with the whole nucleus.

III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi Time scales in p-A collisions t p = c-cbar production time –in the pair rest frame t p 0 = 1/2m c. –in the nucleus rest frame ( =E g /2m c ) : t p =E g /(2m c ) 2 E g = x 1 E p s=(x 1 p p +x 2 p t ) 2 =2x 1 x 2 E p M=2x 2 E g M s=(2m c ) 2 t p =1/(2x 2 M) x 2 =m c e -y /sqrt(s) at RHIC : x 2 =6.5x10 -3 e -y t p =15 e y fm

11
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi t int = interaction time = R A /c at high energies t p > t int or l c =t p c > R A t p =15 e y fm : at forward y t p is very large – the projectile interacts with the whole nucleus – eikonal approximation for the calculation of scattering amplitude

12
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi t f = J/ formation time – in the pair rest frame t f 0 = 2/(m ’- m ) – in the nucleus rest frame ( =E g /M ) : t f = 2E g /(m ’- m ) M – t f 0 =0.45 fm t f RHIC =41 e y fm

13
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi At y>1, at RHIC : t f > t p > t int J/ is formed outside the nucleus, no nuclear effects !

15
III Conv. Naz. ALICE, Frascati, 12-14 Nov. 2007Marzia Nardi At y<-2 the coherence is lost. The production of J/ in p-A is similar to the one in pp collisions J/ can be formed inside the nucleus. c-cbar and J/ interact with nuclear matter.
