Looking for more evidence of collective effects in small systems.

Abstract content

During the last years collective effects in small systems, like p-p and p-A, have been under discussion. Evidence of flow-like patterns has been found in p-p collisions experimentally. Based on this results the proposal to use hydrodynamics to describe small systems, like in A-A collisions, looks tempting, but, some other mechanisms, among them prominently, Color Reconnection (CR), has shown collective effects without invoking hydrodynamics. In this work we present a comparison between EPOS 3 and PYTHIA 8 p-p collisions at \sqrt{s} = 7TeV, two event-generators that use hydro and CR, respectively. Computing p_{T} spectra in multiplicity bins, we are able to extract information of flow-like behaviors.
