Signals of new physics in global event properties in pp collisions in the TeV energy domain: rapidity intervals
Dipartimento di Fisica Teorica and INFN - Sezione di Torino, Via P. Giuria 1, 10125, Torino, Italy
The study of possible new physics signals in global event properties in pp collisions in the TeV energy domain is extended from full phase-space to rapidity intervals experimentally accessible at LHC. The elbow structure in the total multiplicity distribution predicted in full phase-space is clearly present also in restricted rapidity intervals, leading to very strong charged particle correlations. It is also found that energy densities comparable to those reached in heavy ion collisions at RHIC could be attained in pp collisions at LHC.
