Heavy quark production by a quasi-classical color field in proton-nucleus collisionsPhysics Letters, Section B (2004)
AbstractWe calculate the inclusive heavy quark production cross section for proton-nucleus collisions at high energies. We perform calculation in a quasi-classical approximation (McLerran-Venugopalan model) neglecting all low-x evolution effects. The derived expression for the differential cross section can be applied for studying the heavy quark production in the central rapidity region at RHIC.
