Gluon Correlations in the Glasma
Abstract
The physics of the initial conditions of heavy ion collisions isdominated by the nonlinear gluonic interactions of QCD. These lead to the concepts of parton saturation and the Color Glass Condensate (CGC). We discuss recent progress in calculating multigluon correlations in this framework, prompted by the observation that these correlations are in fact easier to compute in a dense system (nucleusnucleus) than a dilute one (protonproton).
