Valuable information on the dynamics of expanding ﬂuids can be inferred from the response of such systems to perturbations in their initial geometry. We apply this technique in high-energy 96 Ru+ 96 Ru and 96 Zr+ 96 Zr collisions to scrutinize the expansion dynamics of the quark-gluon plasma, where the initial geometry perturbations are sourced by the diﬀerences in deformations and radial proﬁles between 96 Ru and 96 Zr, and the collective response is captured by the change in anisotropic ﬂow V…
