Estimation of Non-femtoscopic Effects in p+p and p+A Collisions at RHIC Energies using PYTHIA and HIJING Generators


The spatial extents of particle emission source in high-energy collisions can be measured using two-particle femtoscopic correlations. In collisions with small multiplicities, such as proton-proton collisions, correlation functions can be distorted by non-femtoscopic effects, for example due to the correlations that caused by energy-momentum conservation laws, jets and mini-jets. To estimate these effects, a simulation of p+p collisions at √
