Dijet measurements are potentially useful in constraining the gluon density over a wide range of x and Q, which is needed in order to measure the quark-gluon plasma viscosity and to search for the color-glass condensate. Recently it has been suggested by several theoretical groups that photon induced dijets can also be used to examine the correlation between the gluons in the nucleus. This analysis focused on the latter, examining azimuthal correlations between the total transverse momentum of the dijets and the momentum difference of the dijets. Following the prescription suggested by theorists, a positive correlation was found. dc.format.extent 158 pages dc.language.iso en dc.publisher University of Kansas dc.rights Copyright held by the author. dc.subject Nuclear physics and radiation dc.subject Particle physics dc.subject Heavy Ion Nuclear Physics dc.subject High Energy Nuclear Physics dc.subject Ultra-Peripheral Collisions dc.title Measuring Dijets From Ultra-Peripheral Heavy Ion Collisions dc.type Dissertation dc.contributor.cmtemember Baringer, Philip S. dc.contributor.cmtemember Fischer, Christopher dc.contributor.cmtemember Lerner, David dc.contributor.cmtemember Tapia Takaki, Daniel dc.thesis.degreeDiscipline Physics & Astronomy dc.thesis.degreeLevel Ph.D. dc.identifier.orcid https://orcid.org/0000-0002-7020-9198 dc.rights.accessrights openAccess
