We have studied the effect of nonzero bulk viscosity with peak near the lattice QCD predicted crossover temperature $T_{co}\sim 175 MeV$ on charged particle transverse momentum spectra and elliptic flow. The Israel-Stewart theory of 2nd order causal dissipative relativistic fluid dynamics is used to simulate the space time evolution of the matter formed in Au-Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=200 GeV assuming longitudinal boost invariance. A systematic comparison of temperature, transverse… CONTINUE READING
