Forward dijet measurements in p+pb collisions with the ATLAS detector
Presented by Brian COLE
Session: Morning Session - IV
Forward jet production in proton-lead collisions is expected to be sensitive to saturation of the Pb parton distribution at low x. In particular, theoretical analyses of the consequences of such saturation generally indicate a broadening in the dijet acoplanarity distributions when one of the jets is forward. ATLAS measurements of the dijet azimuthal angle difference distributions in 5.02 TeV p+Pb collisions will be presented as a function of p+Pb collision centrality and compared to similar measurements in p+p collisions at 2.76 TeV. Quantitative analyses of the widths of the distributions will be presented and compared between different centrality bins and between p+Pb and p+p.
