The directed flow of inclusive, transported and non-transported (including produced) protons, as well as antiprotons, has been studied in the framework of Ultra-Relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics approach (UrQMD model) for Au+Au collisions at √ sNN =7.7, 11.5, 19.6, 27, 39, 62.4 and 200 GeV. The rapidity, centrality and energy dependence of directed flow for various proton groups are presented. It is found that the integrated directed flow decreases monotonically as a function of collision…

Testing the impact of electromagnetic fields on the directed flow of constituent quarks in heavy-ion collisions
It has been proposed that strong electromagnetic fields produced in the early stages of heavy-ion collisions can lead to splitting of the rapidity-odd directed flow of positive and negative hadrons.
