Abstract

We calculate production of quark-antiquark pairs in high energy proton-nucleus collisions both in the quasiclassical approximation of McLerran-Venugopalan model and including quantum small-x evolution. The resulting production cross section is explicitly expressed in terms of Glauber-Mueller multiple rescatterings in the classical case and in terms of dipole-nucleus scattering amplitude in the quantum evolution case. We generalize the result of beyond the aligned jet configurations. We expand on the earlier results of Blaizot, Gelis and Venugopalan by deriving quark production cross section including quantum evolution corrections in rapidity intervals both between the quarks and the target and between the quarks and the projectile.
