The pseudorapidity dependence of elliptic flow in Au+Au collisions at 130 A GeV is studied within a full three-dimensional hydrodynamic model in the light-cone coordinate. First, we prepare two initial conditions in the hydrodynamic model for analyzing elliptic flow. Both initial conditions lead to reasonable agreement with single particle spectra in… CONTINUE READING
