Multiparton interactions : From pp to pA

Bierlich, Christian LU (2017) In Nuclear and Particle Physics Proceedings 289-290. p.377-380
Abstract

In the process of understanding nuclear collisions, reliable extrapolations from pp collisions, based on Glauber models, are highly desirable, though seldomly accurate. We review the inclusion of diffractive excitations and argue that they provide an important contribution to centrality observables in pA collisions. We present a method for distinguishing between diffractively and non-diffractively wounded nucleons, and a proof-of-principle for an extrapolation of multiparton interaction models built on this.
