vn. We find that the common practice of using an r 2 weight in the definition of "n in general results in a poorer predictor of vn than when using r n weight, for n > 2. We similarly study the importance of additional properties of the initial state. For example, we show that in order to correctly predict v4 and v5 for non-central collisions, one must take into account nonlinear terms proportional to " 2 and "2"3, respectively. We find that it makes no difference whether one calculates the… Expand

The unreasonable effectiveness of hydrodynamics in heavy ion collisions
Abstract Event-by-event hydrodynamic simulations of AA and pA collisions involve initial energy densities with large spatial gradients. This is associated with the presence of large Knudsen numbers (Expand

In the context of event-by-event hydrodynamic description, we analyze the implications of two models characterized by distinct initial conditions. The initial energy density of the first model adoptsExpand
Continuous description of fluctuating eccentricities
Abstract We consider the initial energy density in the transverse plane of a high energy nucleus–nucleus collision as a random field ρ ( x ) , whose probability distribution P [ ρ ] , the onlyExpand

A systematic study of the sensitivity of triangular flow to the initial state fluctuations in relativistic heavy-ion collisions
Experimental data from the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider suggest that the quark gluon plasma behaves almost like an ideal fluid. Due to its short lifetime, many QGP properties can only be inferredExpand
Characterization of initial fluctuations for the hydrodynamical description of heavy ion collisions
Event-by-event fluctuations in the initial conditions for a hydrodynamical description of heavy-ion collisions are characterized. We propose a Bessel-Fourier decomposition with respect to theExpand
