Abstract: We analyze long range rapidity correlations observed in the STAR experimentat RHIC. Our goal is to extract properties of the two particle correlationmatrix, accounting for the analysis method of the STAR experiment. We find asurprisingly large correlation strength for central collisions of gold nucleiat highest RHIC energies. We argue that such correlations cannot be the resultof impact parameter fluctuations.
