Abstract

We predict a strong enhancement of multijet production in proton-nucleus collisions at collider energies, as compared to a naive expectation of a cross section [Formula presented]. The study of the process would allow one to measure, for the first time, the double-parton distribution functions in a nucleon in a model-independent way and hence to study both the longitudinal and the transverse correlations of partons.
