CMS ridge effect at LHC as a manifestation of bremstralung of gluons due to the quark-anti-quark string formation

By B. A. Arbuzov, E. E. Boos and V. I. Savrin


The recently reported effect of long-range near-side angular correlations at LHC occurs for large multiplicities of particles with $1\,GeV\,<p_T\,<\,3\,GeV$. To understand the effect several possibilities have been discussed. In the letter we propose a simple qualitative mechanism which corresponds to gluon bremstralung of quarks moving with acceleration appropriate to the quark--anti-quark string. The smallness of azimuthal angle difference $\Delta \phi$ along with large $\Delta \eta$ at large multiplicities in this interval of $p_T$ are natural in the mechanism. The mechanism predicts also bremstralung photons with mean values of $p_T \approx 2.9$ and $0.72\,GeV$.Comment: 5 pages, 3 figure
