Nuclear effects in Drell-Yan pair production in high-energy pA collisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Drell-Yan (DY) process of dilepton pair production off nuclei is not affected by final state interactions, energy loss, or absorption. A detailed phenomenological study of this process is thus convenient for investigation of the onset of initial-state effects in proton-nucleus (pA) collisions. In this paper, we present a comprehensive analysis of the DY process in pA interactions at RHIC and LHC energies in the color dipole framework. We analyze several effects affecting the nuclear suppression, RpA
