Elliptic flow at RHIC is computed event-by-event with NeXSPheRIO. We show that when symmetry of the particle distribution in relation to the reaction plane is assumed, as usually done in the experimental extraction of elliptic flow, there is a disagreement between the true and reconstructed elliptic flows (15-30% for η =0, 30% for p ⊥ =0.5 GeV). We suggest a possible way to take into account the asymmetry and get good agreement between these elliptic flows.

Measurement of the elliptic anisotropy of charged particles produced in PbPb collisions at nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy = 2.76 TeV

The anisotropy of the azimuthal distributions of charged particles produced in √ sNN = 2.76 TeV PbPb collisions is studied with the CMS experiment at the LHC. The elliptic anisotropy parameter, v2,

Non-relativistic approximate numerical ideal-magneto-hydrodynamics of (1+1D) transverse flow in Bjorken scenario

In this study, we investigate the impact of the magnetic field on the evolution of the transverse flow of QGP matter in the magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) framework. We assume that the magnetic field is

An analysis of the momentum flow in PbPb and pp collisions containing high momentum jets is performed in order to understand the energy loss of partons traveling in a hot and dense medium. The

Hydrodynamic description of particle production in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

Our recently developed 2+1 (boost-invariant) hydrodynamic model has been presented and used to i) describe the soft hadronic data collected in the central region of the relativistic heavy-ion

Origin of the mass splitting of azimuthal anisotropies in a multiphase transport model

Both hydrodynamics-based models and a multiphase transport (AMPT) model can reproduce the mass splitting of azimuthal anisotropy $({v}_{n})$ at low transverse momentum $({p}_{\ensuremath{\perp}})$ as

Transverse expansion of (1 + 2) dimensional magneto-hydrodynamics flow with longitudinal boost invariance

In the present work, we investigate the effects of magnetic field on expanding hot and dense nuclear matter as an ideal fluid. We consider QGP, on the particular case of a (1 + 2) dimensional

New theories of relativistic hydrodynamics in the LHC era

This review presents developments from the perspective of the underlying microscopic physics, using the language of quantum field theory, relativistic kinetic theory, and holography, as well as several models of hydrodynamic evolution equations, highlighting the interplay between collective long-lived and transient modes in relativist matter.
