Forward backward correlations in pp and p-Pb collisions using the TPC at ALICE


Summary, in English

This thesis reports on the use of \(\nu_{dyn}\) to investigate the ridge structure in p-p and p-Pb collisions using the ALICE detector at LHC. The conclusions drawn in this thesis is that there is nothing which indicates long range correlations, but that the multiplicity dependence of forward-backward correlations measured using \(\nu_{dyn}\) is dominated by an increase in the local contribution from jet production.
