Abstract

We present studies of strange particle yields and correlations in pp collisions in the PYTHIA8 event generator by studying 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.
