Parton structure through two particle correlations in Au-Au at RHIC

Ronald S. Longacre
A method for determining the presence of partonic scattering through two-particle correlations is developed and applied to models which have jets and mini-jets in them. We only consider the correlation of mid-rapidity particles because they will be easily measured in large numbers at RHIC. The level of two-particle correlations will be a direct measure of how dense a system is made in Au-Au collisions at RHIC. The STAR TPC will be ideal for makng these measurements in the first year of running.
