Angular (azimuthal or polar) correlations between produced particles in high energy hadronic/nuclear collisions carry a wealth of information on the dynamics of the strong interactions in the novel regime where parton densities of the target hadron or nucleus are high. As such they probe a relatively unexplored region of QCD kinematic phase space. Here we consider azimuthal angular correlations between three jets produced in Deep Inelastic Scattering in the kinematics region corresponding to low xBjorken of the target and show that high gluon density effects in the target lead to a disappearance of the away-side peaks.
