This paper presents a comparative study of forward-backward correlations and multiplicity fluctuations in experimental data and in HIJING Monte Carlo simulations of Pb–Pb collisions at s NN = 2 . 76 TeV. The analysis focuses on two observables: the forward-backward correlation coefficient b c o r r n - n and the strongly intensive quantity Σ . Results are discussed in the context of the dependence on centrality estimator and influence of event-by-event fluctuations of the geometry of the Pb–Pb collisions on the measured quantities.
