Non-Universality of Transverse Momentum Dependent Parton Distributions at Small-x

Abstract

We study the universality of the transverse momentum dependent parton distributions at small-x, by comparing the initial/final state interaction effects in dijet-correlation in pA collisions with that in deep inelastic lepton nucleus scattering. We demonstrate the non-universality by an explicit calculation in a particular model where the multiple gauge boson exchange contributions are summed up to all orders. We further comment on the implications of our results on the theoretical interpretation of di-hadron correlation in dA collisions in terms of the saturation phenomena in deep inelastic lepton nucleus scattering.
