Evidence for collective multiparticle correlations in $p-Pb$ collisions. Physical Review Letters, 115:012301.

Abstract

The second-order azimuthal anisotropy Fourier harmonics, v2, are obtained in $p-Pb$ and PbPb collisions over a wide pseudorapidity ($\eta$) range based on correlations among six or more charged particles. The p-Pb data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35  $nb^{−1}$, were collected during the 2013 LHC $p$-Pb run at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of $5.02  TeV$ by the CMS experiment. A sample of semiperipheral PbPb collision data at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=2.76  TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $2.5 \mu b^{-1}$ and covering a similar range of particle multiplicities as the $p-Pb$ data, is also analyzed for comparison. The six- and eight-particle cumulant and the Lee-Yang zeros methods are used to extract the $v_2$ coefficients, extending previous studies of two- and four-particle correlations. For both the $p-Pb$ and PbPb systems, the $v_2$ values obtained with correlations among more than four particles are consistent with previously published four-particle results. These data support the interpretation of a collective origin for the previously observed long-range ($\Delta\eta$) correlations in both systems. The ratios of $v_2$ values corresponding to correlations including different numbers of particles are compared to theoretical predictions that assume a hydrodynamic behavior of a p-Pb system dominated by fluctuations in the positions of participant nucleons. These results provide new insights into the multiparticle dynamics of collision systems with a very small overlapping region.
