Considering a dilute-dense situation suitable for pA collisions, we compute in the Color Glass Condensate the correlation between azimuthal asymmetries, specifically the squared second Fourier coefficient $v_2^2$, and the total multiplicity in the event. We also analyse the correlation between $v_2^2$ and the mean squared transverse momentum of particles in the event. In both cases, we find that the correlations are generally very small, consistent with the observations. We also note an interesting sharp change in the value of $v_2^2$ and its correlations as a function of the width of the transverse momentum bin, related with a change of the dominance of Bose and HBT quantum correlations.

Interesting and well-presented phenomenological results on flow harmonics in small systems from the CGC.
A couple of suggestions for Fig. 1, it would be good to include a label on the Y-axis of the left-hand plot. Additionally, it may make sense in the caption to make more clear which of the curves corresponds to which contribution, e.g
"a) the same momentum of the pair (solid line), b) the momentum of the pair is offset by the saturation momentum of the target
in order to avoid the gluon HBT effect (dashed line)" or some similar clarification.
