The PHENIX experiment has studied nuclear effects in $$p$$$$+$$Al and $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$$ GeV on charged hadron production at forward rapidity ($$1.4< eta < 2.4$$, $$p$$-going direction) and backward rapidity ($$-2.2 < eta < -1.2$$, $$A$$-going direction). Such effects are quantified by measuring nuclear modification factors as a function of transverse momentum and pseudorapidity in various collision multiplicity selections. In central $$p$$$$+$$Al and $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions, a suppression (enhancement) is observed at forward (backward) rapidity compared to the binary scaled yields in $$p$$+$$p$$ collisions. The magnitude of enhancement at backward rapidity is larger in $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions than in $$p$$$$+$$Al collisions, which have a smaller number of participating nucleons. However, the results at forward rapidity show a similar suppression within uncertainties. The results in the integrated centrality are compared with calculations using nuclear parton distribution functions, which show a reasonable agreement at the forward rapidity but fail to describe the backward rapidity enhancement.

We report on the nuclear dependence of transverse single-spin asymmetries (TSSAs) in the production of positively-charged hadrons in polarized $$p^{uparrow}+p$$, $$p^{uparrow}+$$Al and $$p^{uparrow}+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$$ GeV. The measurements have been performed at forward rapidity ($$1.4 < eta < 2.4$$) over the range of $$1.8 < p_{T} < 7.0$$ GeV$$/c$$ and $$0.1 < x_{F} < 0.2$$. We observed a positive asymmetry $$A_{N}$$ for positively-charged hadrons in $$p^{uparrow}+p$$ collisions, and a significantly reduced asymmetry in $$p^{uparrow}$$+$$A$$ collisions. These results reveal a nuclear dependence of charged hadron $$A_N$$ in a regime where perturbative techniques are relevant. These results provide new opportunities to use $$p^{uparrow}+$$A collisions as a tool to investigate the rich phenomena behind TSSAs in hadronic collisions and to use TSSA as a new handle in studying small-system collisions.

Measurements of the differential production of electrons from open-heavy-flavor hadrons with charm- and bottom-quark content in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}=200$$ GeV are presented. The measurements proceed through displaced-vertex analyses of electron tracks from the semileptonic decay of charm and bottom hadrons using the PHENIX silicon-vertex detector. The relative contribution of electrons from bottom decays to inclusive heavy-flavor-electron production is found to be consistent with fixed-order-plus-next-to-leading-log perturbative-QCD calculations within experimental and theoretical uncertainties. These new measurements in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions provide a precision baseline for comparable forthcoming measurements in A$$+$$A collisions.

The PHENIX collaboration has measured high-$$p_T$$ dihadron correlations in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$, $$p$$$$+$$Al, and $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$$ GeV. The correlations arise from inter- and intra-jet correlations and thus have sensitivity to nonperturbative effects in both the initial and final states. The distributions of $$p_{rm out}$$, the transverse momentum component of the associated hadron perpendicular to the trigger hadron, are sensitive to initial and final state transverse momenta. These distributions are measured multi-differentially as a function of $$x_E$$, the longitudinal momentum fraction of the associated hadron with respect to the trigger hadron. The near-side $$p_{rm out}$$ widths, sensitive to fragmentation transverse momentum, show no significant broadening between $$p$$$$+$$Au, $$p$$$$+$$Al, and $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$. The away-side nonperturbative $$p_{rm out}$$ widths are found to be broadened in $$p$$$$+$$Au when compared to $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$; however, there is no significant broadening in $$p$$$$+$$Al compared to $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions. The data also suggest that the away-side $$p_{rm out}$$ broadening is a function of $$N_{rm coll}$$, the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions, in the interaction. The potential implications of these results with regard to initial and final state transverse momentum broadening and energy loss of partons in a nucleus, among other nuclear effects, are discussed.

PHENIX reports differential cross sections of $$mumu$$ pairs from semileptonic heavy-flavor decays and the Drell-Yan production mechanism measured in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}=200$$ GeV at forward and backward rapidity ($$1.2 < |eta| < 2.2$$). The $$mumu$$ pairs from $$cbar{c}$$, $$bbar{b}$$, and Drell-Yan are separated using a simultaneous fit to unlike- and like-sign muon pair spectra in mass and $$p_T$$. The azimuthal opening angle correlation between the muons from $$cbar{c}$$ and $$bbar{b}$$ decays and the pair-$$p_T$$ distributions are compared to distributions generated using ${sc pythia}$ and ${sc powheg}$ models, which both include next-to-leading order processes. The measured distributions for pairs from $$cbar{c}$$ are consistent with ${sc pythia}$ calculations. The $$cbar{c}$$ data presents narrower azimuthal correlations and softer $$p_T$$ distributions compared to distributions generated from ${sc powheg}$. The $$bbar{b}$$ data are well described by both models. The extrapolated total cross section for bottom production is $$3.75{pm}0.24({rm stat}){pm}^{0.35}_{0.50}({rm syst}){pm}0.45({rm global})$$[$$mu$$b], which is consistent with previous measurements at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in the same system at the same collision energy, and is approximately a factor of two higher than the central value calculated with theoretical models. The measured Drell-Yan cross section is in good agreement with next-to-leading-order quantum-chromodynamics calculations.

Experimental studies of the collisions of heavy nuclei at relativistic energies have established the properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a state of hot, dense nuclear matter in which quarks and gluons are not bound into hadrons. In this state, matter behaves as a nearly inviscid fluid that efficiently translates initial spatial anisotropies into correlated momentum anisotropies among the particles produced, creating a common velocity field pattern known as collective flow. In recent years, comparable momentum anisotropies have been measured in small-system proton-proton and proton-nucleus (p+A) collisions, despite expectations that the volume and lifetime of the medium produced would be too small to form a QGP. Here we report on the observation of elliptic and triangular flow patterns of charged particles produced in proton-gold (p+Au), deuteron-gold (d+Au) and helium-gold ($$^{3}$$He+Au) collisions at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy $$sqrt{s_{{mathrm{NN}}}}$$ = 200 GeV. The unique combination of three distinct initial geometries and two flow patterns provides unprecedented model discrimination. Hydrodynamical models, which include the formation of a short-lived QGP droplet, provide the best simultaneous description of these measurements.

Production of $$pi^0$$ and $$eta$$ mesons has been measured at midrapidity in Cu$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$$=200 GeV. Measurements were performed in $$pi^0(eta)rightarrowgammagamma$$ decay channel in the 1(2)-20 GeV/$$c$$ transverse momentum range. A strong suppression is observed for $$pi^0$$ and $$eta$$ meson production at high transverse momentum in central Cu$$+$$Au collisions relative to the $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ results scaled by the number of nucleon-nucleon collisions. In central collisions the suppression is similar to Au$$+$$Au with comparable nuclear overlap. The $$eta/pi^0$$ ratio measured as a function of transverse momentum is consistent with $$m_T$$-scaling parameterization down to $$p_T=$$2 GeV/$$c$$, its asymptotic value is constant and consistent with Au$$+$$Au and $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ and does not show any significant dependence on collision centrality. Similar results were obtained in hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus, and nucleus-nucleus collisions as well as in $$e^+e^-$$ collisions in a range of collision energies $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=$$ 3-1800 GeV. This suggests that the quark-gluon-plasma medium produced in Cu$$+$$Cu collisions either does not affect the jet fragmentation into light mesons or it affects the $$pi^0$$ and $$eta$$ the same way.

Nonperturbative transverse-momentum-dependent effects in dihadron and direct photon-hadron angular correlations in $$p+p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}=200$$ GeV

Dihadron and isolated direct photon-hadron angular correlations are measured in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}=200$$ GeV. The correlations are sensitive to nonperturbative initial-state and final-state transverse momentum $$k_T$$ and $$j_T$$ in the azimuthal nearly back-to-back region $$Deltaphisimpi$$. In this region, transverse-momentum-dependent evolution can be studied when several different hard scales are measured. To have sensitivity to small transverse momentum scales, nonperturbative momentum widths of $$p_{rm out}$$, the out-of-plane transverse momentum component perpendicular to the trigger particle, are measured. These widths are used to investigate possible effects from transverse-momentum-dependent factorization breaking. When accounting for the longitudinal momentum fraction of the away-side hadron with respect to the near-side trigger particle, the widths are found to increase with the hard scale; this is qualitatively similar to the observed behavior in Drell-Yan and semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering interactions. The momentum widths are also studied as a function of center-of-mass energy by comparing to previous measurements at $$sqrt{s}=510$$ GeV. The nonperturbative jet widths also appear to increase with $$sqrt{s}$$ at a similar $$x_T$$, which is qualitatively consistent to similar measurements in Drell-Yan interactions.

Single-spin asymmetry of $$J/psi$$ production in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$, $$p$$$$+$$Al, and $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions with transversely polarized proton beams at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$$ GeV

We report the transverse single-spin asymmetries of $$J/psi$$ production at forward and backward rapidity, $$1.2<|y|<2.2$$, as a function of $$J/psi$$ transverse momentum ($$p_T$$) and Feynman-$$x$$ ($$x_F$$). The data analyzed were recorded by the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in 2015 from $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$, $$p$$$$+$$Al, and $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions with transversely polarized proton beams at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$$ GeV. At this collision energy, single-spin asymmetries for heavy-flavor particle production of $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions provide access to the spin-dependent gluon distribution and higher-twist correlation functions inside the nucleon, such as the gluon Qiu-Sterman and trigluon correlation functions. Proton + nucleus collisions offer an excellent opportunity to study nuclear effects on the correlation functions. The data indicate negative asymmetries at the two-standard-deviation level in the $$p$$$$+$$Au data for $$p_T<2$$ GeV/$$c$$ at both forward and backward rapidity, while in $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ and $$p$$$$+$$Al collisions the asymmetries are consistent with zero within the range of experimental uncertainties.

Recently, multiparticle-correlation measurements of relativistic $$p/d/^3$$He$$+$$Au, $$p$$$$+$$Pb, and even $$p$$$$+$$$$p$$ collisions have shown surprising collective signatures. Here we present beam-energy-scan measurements of 2-, 4-, and 6-particle angular correlations in $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$$=200, 62.4, 39, and 19.6 GeV. We also present measurements of 2- and 4-particle angular correlations in $$p$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$$=200 GeV. We find the 4-particle cumulant to be real-valued for $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at all four energies. We also find that the 4-particle cumulant in $$p$$$$+$$Au has the opposite sign as that in $$d$$$$+$$Au, indicating that the correlations are geometrical and therefore collective in origin. Further we find that the 6-particle cumulant agrees with the 4-particle cumulant in $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at 200 GeV, which indicates that nonflow effects are subdominant and provides strong evidence of collectivity.

During 2015 the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) provided collisions of transversely polarized protons with Au and Al nuclei for the first time, enabling the exploration of transverse-single-spin asymmetries with heavy nuclei. Large single-spin asymmetries in very forward neutron production have been previously observed in transversely polarized $$p+p$$ collisions at RHIC, and the existing theoretical framework that was successful in describing the single-spin asymmetry in $$p+p$$ collisions predicts only a moderate atomic-mass-number ($$A$$) dependence. In contrast, the asymmetries observed at RHIC in $$p+A$$ collisions showed a surprisingly strong $$A$$ dependence in inclusive forward neutron production. The observed asymmetry in $$p$$+Al collisions is much smaller, while the asymmetry in $$p$$ + Au collisions is a factor of three larger in absolute value and of opposite sign. The interplay of different neutron production mechanisms is discussed as a possible explanation of the observed $$A$$ dependence.

The fraction of $$J/psi$$ mesons which come from B-meson decay, $$textrm{F}_{B{rightarrow}J/psi}$$, is measured for J/$$psi$$ rapidity $$1.2<|y|< 2.2$$ and $$p_T>0$$ in $$p$$+$$p$$ and Cu+Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$$=200 GeV with the PHENIX detector. The extracted fraction is $$textrm{F}_{B{rightarrow}J/psi}$$ = 0.025 $$pm$$ 0.006(stat) $$pm$$ 0.010(syst) for $$p$$+$$p$$ collisions. For Cu+Au collisions, $$textrm{F}_{B{rightarrow}J/psi}$$ is 0.094 $$pm$$ 0.028(stat) $$pm$$ 0.037(syst) in the Au-going direction ($$-2.2<y<-1.2$$) and 0.089 $$pm$$ 0.026(stat) $$pm$$ 0.040(syst) in the Cu-going direction ($$1.2<y<2.2$$). The nuclear modification factor, $$R_{rm CuAu}$$, of B mesons in Cu+Au collisions is consistent with binary scaling of measured yields in $$p$$+$$p$$ at both forward and backward rapidity.

We present measurements of the elliptic flow, $$v_2$$, as a function of transverse momentum ($$p_T$$), pseudorapidity ($$eta$$), and centrality in $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=$$200, 62.4, 39, and 19.6 GeV. The beam-energy scan of $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions provides a testing ground for the onset of flow signatures in small collision systems. We measure a nonzero $$v_2$$ signal at all four collision energies, which, at midrapidity and low $$p_T$$, is consistent with predictions from viscous hydrodynamic models. Comparisons with calculations from parton transport models (based on the ${sc ampt}$ Monte Carlo generator) show good agreement with the data at midrapidity to forward ($$d$$-going) rapidities and low $$p_T$$. At backward (Au-going) rapidities and $$p_T > 1.5$$ GeV/$$c$$, the data diverges from ${sc ampt}$ calculations of $$v_2$$ relative to the initial geometry, indicating the possible dominance of nongeometry related correlations, referred to as nonflow. We also present measurements of the charged-particle multiplicity ($$dN_{rm ch}/deta$$) as a function of $$eta$$ in central $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at the same energies. We find that in $$d$$$$+$$Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=$$200 GeV the $$v_2$$ scales with $$dN_{rm ch}/deta$$ over all $$eta$$ in the PHENIX acceptance. At $$sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=$$62.4, and 39 GeV, $$v_2$$ scales with $$dN_{rm ch}/deta$$ at midrapidity and forward rapidity, but falls off at backward rapidity. This departure from the $$dN_{rm ch}/deta$$ scaling may be a further indication of nonflow effects dominating at backward rapidity.

The cross section and transverse single-spin asymmetries of $$mu^-$$ and $$mu^+$$ from open heavy-flavor decays in polarized $$p+p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 GeV were measured by the PHENIX experiment during 2012 at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Because heavy-flavor production is dominated by gluon-gluon interactions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 GeV, these measurements offer a unique opportunity to obtain information on the trigluon correlation functions. The measurements are performed at forward and backward rapidity ($$1.4 < |y| < 2.0$$) over the transverse momentum range of $$1.25 < p_T < 7$$ GeV/$$c$$ for the cross section and $$1.25 < p_T < 5$$ GeV/$$c$$ for the asymmetry measurements. The obtained cross section is compared to a fixed-order-plus-next-to-leading-log perturbative-quantum-chromodynamics calculation. The asymmetry results are consistent with zero within uncertainties, and a model calculation based on twist-3 three-gluon correlations agrees with the data.

We report the first measurement of the fraction of $$J/psi$$ mesons coming from $$B$$-meson decay ($$F_{B to J/psi}$$) in $$p+p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}=510$$ GeV. The measurement is performed using the forward silicon vertex detector and central vertex detector at PHENIX, which provide precise tracking and distance-of-closest-approach determinations, enabling the statistical separation of $$J/psi$$ due to $$B$$-meson decays from prompt $$J/psi$$. The measured value of $$F_{B to J/psi}$$ is $$8.1% pm 2.3%{(rm stat)} pm1.9% {(rm syst)}$$ for $$J/psi$$ with transverse momenta $$0 < p_T < 5$$ GeV/$$c$$ and rapidity $$1.2<|y|<2.2$$. The measured fraction $$F_{B to J/psi}$$ at PHENIX is compared to values measured by other experiments at higher center of mass energies and to fixed-order-next-to-leading-logarithm and color-evaporation-model predictions. The $$bbar{b}$$ cross section per unit rapidity $$[dsigma/dy(pp to bbar{b})]$$ extracted from the obtained $$F_{B to J/psi}$$ and the PHENIX inclusive $$J/psi$$ cross section measured at 200 GeV scaled with color-evaporation-model calculations, at the mean $$B$$ hadron rapidity $$y=pm 1.7$$ in 510 GeV $$p+p$$ collisions, is $$3.63_{-1.70}^{+1.92}$$ $$mu$$b. It is consistent with the fixed-order-next-to-leading-logarithm calculations.

We present measurements of long-range angular correlations and the transverse momentum dependence of elliptic flow $$v_2$$ in high-multiplicity $$p$$ + Au collisions at $$sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$$ GeV. A comparison of these results to previous measurements in high-multiplicity $$d$$ + Au and $$^3$$He + Au collisions demonstrates a relation between $$v_2$$ and the initial collision eccentricity $$epsilon_2$$, suggesting that the observed momentum-space azimuthal anisotropies in these small systems have a collective origin and reflect the initial geometry. Good agreement is observed between the measured $$v_2$$ and hydrodynamic calculations for all systems, and an argument disfavoring theoretical explanations based on initial momentum-space domain correlations is presented. The set of measurements presented here allows us to leverage the distinct intrinsic geometry of each of these systems to distinguish between different theoretical descriptions of the long-range correlations observed in small collision systems.

重いフレーバーのメソンの崩壊からの電子の測定は、このメソンの収量が金金衝突では陽子陽子に比べて抑制されていることを示している。われわれはこの研究をさらに進めて二つの粒子の相関、つまり重いフレーバーメソンの崩壊からの電子と、もう一つの重いフレーバーメソンあるいはジェットの破片からの荷電ハドロン、の相関を調べた。この測定は重いクォークとクォークグルオン物質の相互作用についてのより詳しい情報を与えるものである。われわれは特に金金衝突では陽子陽子に比べて反対側のジェットの形と収量が変化していることを見いだした。

RHIC-PHENIX実験で重心エネルギー200GeVの陽子陽子衝突からの$$K^0_s$$, $$omega$$, $$eta'$$$$phi$$中間子生成の微分断面積を測定した。これらハドロンの横運動量分布のスペクトルの形はたった二つのパラメーター、$$n, T$$、のTsallis分布関数でよく記述できる。これらのパラメーターはそれぞれ高い横運動量と低い横運動量の領域のスペクトルを決めている。これらの分布をフィットして得られた積分された不変断面積はこれまで測定されたデータ及び統計モデルの予言と一致している。
