Study of φ and η correlations in minimum bias events with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider
2010 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
We study a new way to describe minimum bias events based on angular distributions in ≈5million minimum bias proton-antiproton collisions collected between April 2002 and February 2006 with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We demonstrate that the distribution of ∆φ in the detector transverse plane between the leading track and all other tracks is a robust observable that can be used for tuning of multiple color interaction models. Pseudorapidity correlations of the ∆φ distributions are also studied.
