Isolation of Flow and Nonflow by Two- and Multi-Particle Cumulant Measurements of vn in sNN=200 GeV Au + Au Collisions by STAR
Review articleOpen access

AbstractWe apply a data-driven method to STAR Au + Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV to isolate Δη-dependent and Δη-independent correlations by using two- and four-particle Q-cumulant vn measurements. The Δη-independent part, dominated by flow, is found to be η-independent within the STAR TPC of ±1 unit of pseudo-rapidity. The Δη-dependent part may be associated to nonflow, and is responsible for the Δη drop in the measured two-particle v2 cumulant. We combine our result to four- and six-particle cumulants to gain further insights on the nature of flow fluctuations.
