Measurements of two- and four-particle angular correlations for charged particles emitted in pPb collisions are presented over a wide range in pseudorapidity and full azimuth. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 31 nb(-1), were collected during the 2013 LHC pPb run at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV by the CMS experiment. The results are compared to 2.76 TeV semi-peripheral PbPb collision data, collected during the 2011 PbPb run, covering a similar range of particle multiplicities. The observed correlations are characterized by the near-side (vertical bar Delta phi vertical bar approximate to 0) associated pair yields and the azimuthal anisotropy Fourier harmonics (nu(n)). The second-order (nu(2)) and third-order (v(3)) anisotropy harmonics are extracted using the two-particle azimuthal correlation technique. A four-particle correlation method is also applied to obtain the value of nu(2) and further explore the multi-particle nature ...of the correlations. Both associated pair yields and anisotropy harmonics are studied as a function of particle multiplicity and transverse momentum. The associated pair yields, the four-particle nu(2), and the nu(3) become apparent at about the same multiplicity. A remarkable similarity in the nu(3) signal as a function of multiplicity is observed between the pPb and PbPb systems. Predictions based on the color glass condensate and hydrodynamic models are compared to the experimental results. (C) 2013 CERN. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
