1 Multiparticle Correlations and Charged Jet Studies in p+p, d+Au, and Au+Au Collisions at  s NN =200 GeV. Michael L. Miller Yale University For the STAR Collaboration

2 May 2003Mike Miller Jet Properties at RHIC Measure jets in “simple” system (p+p). Use this information to measure jets in complex system (Au+Au).

3 May 2003Mike Miller Jets in Au+Au: Angular Correlations Px (GeV/c) Py (GeV/c) Particles from same jet are close in angle Particles from di-jets are ~180 deg. apart Select high-p T portion of event (p T >2 GeV)

4 May 2003Mike Miller Jets in p+p: Direct Identification  Cluster final state (charged!) hadrons from a common “parent” quark/gluon.  Reconstruct momentum of quark/gluon  Implemented, tested, using 4 jet-finding algorithms Remember: only charged particles!

5 May 2003Mike Miller Di-jet Angular Distributions Increase jet p T, tighten di-jet peak Measure Nuclear k T in d+Au Raw STAR Preliminary

6 May 2003Mike Miller Jet-Event Shape and Size Raw STAR Preliminary (Arbitrary Units) Within away side jetWithin lead jetTransverse region Raw STAR Preliminary

7 May 2003Mike Miller Raw STAR Preliminary “Fragmentation” of Charged Jets Selecting Jets with large Fragmentation Bias! Events with p T >4 GeV track All jets with at least one 2


8 May 2003Mike Miller What Does this Mean? 1.At high jet-p T, leading particle collinear with jet axis 2.Correlation jets: leading particle carries ~80% of reconstructed charged particle jet p T. Leading particle is a good approximation of jet direction Leading particle is easily related to jet p T Mean trigger fragmentation Defines the pQCD scale Defines jet p T of away-side partner!

9 May 2003Mike Miller Jets In d+Au Collisions  No background subtraction  Central: top 20% of -3.8<η<-2.8 uncorrected multiplicity Back-to-back jets are not suppressed in central d+Au underlying event: p+p  d+Au minbias  d+Au central near-side: correlation strength and width similar away-side: d+Au peak broader but with little centrality dependence p+p: Adler et al., PRL90: (2003), STAR

10 May 2003Mike Miller Au+Au, p+p: Adler et al., PRL90: (2003), STAR Jets In Least Violent Au+Au Collisions “Near side” jet: consistent in all 3 systems “away side” jet: consistent in all 3 systems  Au+Au: Subtract background from combinatorics, flow  d+Au: no suppression in central collisions  use min. bias.  d+Au: subtract underlying event.

11 May 2003Mike Miller Au+Au, p+p: Adler et al., PRL90: (2003), STAR Jets In Most Violent Au+Au Collisions “Near side” jet: consistent in all 3 systems “away side” jet: p+p  d+Au  Au+Au  Au+Au: Subtract background from combinatorics, flow  d+Au: no suppression in central collisions  use min. bias.  d+Au: subtract underlying event.

12 May 2003Mike Miller Conclusions 1.p+p: p T >4 GeV particles are good approximation of jet direction, momentum 2.d+Au: no suppression of away-side jet in central collisions 3.Au+Au: strong suppression of away-side jet in central collisions. Combined: Strong back-to-back suppression in central Au+Au cannot be fully explained by initial state physics

13 May 2003Mike Miller What’s Coming from STAR? 1.p+p: Run III data with E.M. Calorimeter 0<  <1. Identified jets including  0. 2.d+Au: Same! 3.Au+Au: Run IV with expanded calorimeter and extensive high-p T triggered data. Measure vacuum, in-medium “fragmentation” functions!

16 May 2003Mike Miller ZDCW FTPCE Au d d+Au “Centrality” Tagging  FTPCE multiplicity: -3.8<  <-2.8 (Au fragmentation direction)  ZDCW: single deuteron spectator Uncorrected FTPCE multiplicity minbias single deuteron spectator FTPCE multiplicity: defines “centrality” in d+Au events

18 May 2003Mike Miller Why Jets? Energy Loss in Dense Matter Strong dependence of energy loss on gluon density  glue  measure   measure gluon density at early hot, dense phase Thick plasma (Baier et al.): Thin plasma (Gyulassy et al.): Gluon Bremsstrahlung

19 May 2003Mike Miller “Fragmentation” of Charged Jets Raw STAR Preliminary Fragmentation slope scales with jet p T beyond 6 GeV How does the slope change as a function of jet p T ?

20 May 2003Mike Miller “Fragmentation” of Charged Jets Raw STAR Preliminary Slope depends on jet- algorithm What fraction of (reconstructed) jet p T does each particle carry?

21 May 2003Mike Miller Di-jet Angular Distributions Increase jet p T, tighten di-jet peak Measure Nuclear k T in d+Au Raw STAR Preliminary
