Abstract:

We report the multiplicity dependence of charged particle production for the π±, K±, p, \bar{p}, and / mesons at |y|<1.0 in p+ p collisions at \sqrt{s}=200 GeV from a PYTHIA simulation. The impact of multiple parton interactions and gluon contributions is studied and found to be a possible source of the splitting of the particle yields as a function of pT with respect to the multiplicity. No obvious particle species dependence of the splitting is observed. The multiplicity dependence of the ratios K, K++, \bar{p}/π,  p/π+, and K$_s^0$ at mid-rapidity in p+p collisions is found to follow a tendency similar to that in Au þ Au collisions at \sqrt{s_{NN}} = 200 GeV at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, indicating similar underlying initial production mechanisms despite the differences in the initial colliding systems.
