By using the recently developed technique of correlation integrals we measured correlation functions over a wide range of invariant mass 50 GeV ≥ M ≥ 0.2809 GeV in pp reactions at collider energy. A comparison with Monte Carlo models shows that our understanding of the dynamics of multiparticle production is still insufficient. We discuss a possible improvement by including low pT clustering effects in addition to those of Lund-strings alone.
