Eccentricity and elliptic flow at fixed centrality in Au+Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV in AMPT model

  • In this paper, elliptic flow is studied at fixed centrality in Au+Au collision at √sNN=200 GeV in the AMPT model. It is observed that with the participant increasing, elliptic flow has an increase or a decrease at different fixed impact parameter, but it does not have a trivial fluctuation. It is analyzed that the initial space anisotropy dominates the participant dependence of elliptic flow in near-central collisions(b=5 fm) and mid-central collisions(b=8 fm), while the interaction between particles can mainly answer for the behavior of elliptic flow with participant in peripheral collisions (b=12 fm). To distinguish the pure geometrical effect, elliptic flow scaled by initial eccentricity is studied. It is found that the ratio v2/ε increases with participant and reaches a saturation when the participant is large enough, indicating that the collision system may reach the local equilibrium.

Eccentricity and elliptic flow at fixed centrality in Au+Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV in AMPT model

    Corresponding author: WANG Mei-Juan,

Abstract: In this paper, elliptic flow is studied at fixed centrality in Au+Au collision at √sNN=200 GeV in the AMPT model. It is observed that with the participant increasing, elliptic flow has an increase or a decrease at different fixed impact parameter, but it does not have a trivial fluctuation. It is analyzed that the initial space anisotropy dominates the participant dependence of elliptic flow in near-central collisions(b=5 fm) and mid-central collisions(b=8 fm), while the interaction between particles can mainly answer for the behavior of elliptic flow with participant in peripheral collisions (b=12 fm). To distinguish the pure geometrical effect, elliptic flow scaled by initial eccentricity is studied. It is found that the ratio v2/ε increases with participant and reaches a saturation when the participant is large enough, indicating that the collision system may reach the local equilibrium.
