Abstract

Forward-backward multiplicitycorrelations are investigated by analyzing the experimental data on 6O-AgBr collisions at 14.5A, 60A and 200A GeV/c and the findings are compared with the predictions of Monte Carlo model, hIJING. the findings indicate that the observed correlations are mainly of short-range in nature which arise due to the decay of clusters and (or) resonances produced in the central rapidity region. the result reveal that the range of F-B correlations extend to rather longer range with increasing beam energy which might be due to overall multiplicity fluctuations arising because of nuclear geometry. however, there is no evidence for the presence of long-range correlations even at the highest beam energy considered.
