Because the properties of the QCD phase transition and the chiral magnetic effect (CME) depend on the number of quark flavors (N-f) and quark mass, relativistic heavy-ion collisions provide a natural environment to investigate the flavor features if quark deconfinement occurs. We introduce an initial two-flavor or three-flavor dipole charge separation into a multiphase transport (AMPT) model to investigate the flavor dependence of the CME. By taking advantage of the recent ALICE data of charge…

Sensitivity analysis for observables of the chiral magnetic effect using a multiphase transport model
Because the traditional observable of charge-dependent azimuthal correlator $\gamma$ contains both contributions from the chiral magnetic effect (CME) and its background, a new observable of

The production of $_{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Lambda}}}^{3}\mathrm{H}$ and $_{\overline{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Lambda}}}}^{3}\overline{\mathrm{H}}$, as well as $^{3}\mathrm{H}, ^{3}\overline{\mathrm{H}},
Recent developments in chiral and spin polarization effects in heavy-ion collisions
We give a brief overview of recent theoretical and experimental results on the chiral magnetic effect and spin polarization effect in heavy-ion collisions. We present updated experimental results for
Spin Hydrodynamic Generation in the Charged Subatomic Swirl
A novel application of a general connection between rotation and magnetic field is suggested: a magnetic field naturally arises along the fluid vorticity in the charged subatomic swirl and provides a nontrivial explanation to the puzzling observation of a difference in spin hydrodynamic generation for particles and anti-particles in heavy ion collisions.


Charge dependence of identified two-hadron correlation relative to the reaction plane in Pb-Pb collisions measured with ALICE
Recently a non-zero charge dependence of two-particle correlation relative to the reaction plane in relativistic heavy-ion collisions was observed by RHIC and LHC experiments. The interpretation of
Is there a flavor hierarchy in the deconfinement transition of QCD?
Possible indications for flavor separation during the QCD crossover transition based on continuum extrapolated lattice QCD calculations of higher order susceptibilities are presented and a possible experimental verification of this prediction is proposed, based on the measurement ofHigher order moments of identified particle multiplicities.
Observation of charge-dependent azimuthal correlations and possible local strong parity violation in heavy-ion collisions
Parity (P)-odd domains, corresponding to nontrivial topological solutions of the QCD vacuum, might be created during relativistic heavy-ion collisions. These domains are predicted to lead to charge
Novel quantum phenomena induced by strong magnetic fields in heavy-ion collisions
AbstractThe relativistic heavy-ion collisions create both hot quark–gluon matter and strong magnetic fields, and provide an arena to study the interplay between quantum chromodynamics and quantum
Effects of momentum conservation and flow on angular correlations observed in experiments at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider
Correlations of azimuthal angles observed at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider have gained great attention due to the prospect of identifying fluctuations of parity-odd regions in the field sector
Chiral magnetic effect
Topological charge changing transitions can induce chirality in the quark-gluon plasma by the axial anomaly. We study the equilibrium response of the quark-gluon plasma in such a situation to an
Equation of state in ( 2+1 )-flavor QCD
We present results for the equation of state in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD using the highly improved staggered quark action and lattices with temporal extent N τ = 6 , 8, 10, and 12. We show that these
Azimuthal charged-particle correlations and possible local strong parity violation.
A three-particle azimuthal correlator is investigated which is a P even observable, but directly sensitive to the charge separation effect, and measurements of charged hadrons near center-of-mass rapidity with this observable are reported.
