The quark-gluon plasma (QGP) formed in high-energy heavy-ion collisions at RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) top energies is a strongly interacting QCD (quantum chromodynamics) color medium. Elliptic flow (v2), which is the secondorder Fourier coefficient of the azimuthal distribution of the produced particles with respect to the reaction plane, has… CONTINUE READING
