Dynamical models based on relativistic fluid dynamics provide a powerful tool to extract the properties of the strongly-coupled quark-gluon plasma (QGP) produced by ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions. The largest source of uncertainty in these model-to-data extractions is the choice of theoretical initial conditions (ICs) used to model the distribution of energy or entropy at the hydrodynamic starting time. Descriptions of the ICs are generally improved through iterative cycles of testing… CONTINUE READING
