STAR: Phys. Rev. C 77 (2008) 54901 How about the higher order anisotropic flow such as v4? Baryon and meson elliptic flow follow the number of quark ( Nq ) scaling. Indicates that partonic flow builds up at RHIC. Na Li th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics

Ollitrault v4 : 4th harmonic If system reaches local thermal equilibrium, according to ideal hydro dynamic calculation, v4/v22 approaches 0.5 at high pT region. Directly related to the degree of thermalization of the medium. Na Li th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics

**TPC Event Plane 2nd harmonic event plane (a) (c) (b)**

STAR preliminary (a) 2nd harmonic event plane Event plane angle (Rad) (c) STAR preliminary (b) Detector bias is removed by applying phi weights to the tracks. Phi weights are generated by inverting the normalized phi distributions of detected tracks for a large event sample. Na Li th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics

C56 (1997)3254 Phi weight + Shift Phi weight Event plane angle (Rad) STAR preliminary The event plane distribution is not flat after phi weight correction due to several acceptance effect of FTPC. Add additional shift correction. Large η gap is used to reduce the non-flow effect. Na Li th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics

non-flow effect. Run 7 high statistics data used in this analysis. Proton and anti-proton seems to deviate from the number of quark scaling at (mT - m)/nq ~ 1 GeV/c2 . The number of quark scaling has been observed for v4 at (mT - m)/nq < 1 GeV/c2. Mesons and baryons (, KS0 and ) have similar v4/(v2)2 ratios. It is close to unity at pT > 1 GeV/c, higher than ideal hydrodynamic model predictions. Na Li th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics
