We present studies of strange particle yields and correlations in pp collisions in PYTHIA8 and PYTHIA6 event generators using the method of forward- backward correlations. Several key processes that give rise to these correlative effects are identified and manipulated to probe the fundamental properties of strange particle emitting sources. The sensitivity of strange particle production and correlations to PYTHIA’s multiparton interaction, color reconnection, and explicit strangeness suppression are shown. These processes are manipulated to adjust the short and long-term components of particle production correlations in simulation. Motivation for further experimental research of forward-backward correlations with strange particles in pp collisions is given.
