1 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen1 The story of v 3 John Chin-Hao Chen ( 陳勁豪 ) for PHENIX Collaboration Stony Brook University Moriond QCD 2011/03/23

2 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen2 outline What is v 3 ? How to measure v 3 ? How do theorist think of v 3 ? Does v 3 explains the jet shape modification (ridge and shoulder)?

3 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen3 v n : particle anisotropy Spatial distribution of colliding area is “almond” like due to overlap of two colliding nuclei. dN/d(  -  ) =N 0 (  (1+2v n cosn(  -  ))) v 2 = elliptic flow If nuclei is perfect spherical-> no v odd With some initial state fluctuation -> finite v odd ?

4 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen4 Glauber initial state The nuclear is not perfect in shape Nucleon distribution is not smooth Azimuthal symmetry no longer holds v odd is possible

5 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen5 2-D  correlations shoulder ridge   rad  Peripheral Au+Au/pp Central Au+Au Both near and away side are modified!

6 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen6 v 3, reason for ridge and shoulder? Ridge sits at  ~ 0, shoulder sits at  ~2  /3, 4  /3 –A 3-peak structure! v 3 (Fourier Coefficient of the cos3  term) gives a natural 3-peak structure Is v 3 the explanation? Need to measure v3 to answer this question!

7 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen7 How do we measure v 3 ? Reaction plane method –Use forward detector to determine the n-th reaction plane Two particle correlation method –No need to determine the reaction plane –central-central two particle correlations

9 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen9 Measuring v n with  n Use the forward detector to determine the nth event plane,  n Measure v n respect to  n and correct with reaction plane resolution  n

11 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen11 v n from two particle correlations Standard v 2 (v 4 ): single particle vs. reaction plane dN/d(  Can also measure v n via two particle correlation –Central-central correlation (0.3<|  |<0.7) –PHENIX: Phys. Rev. Lett. 89, (2002) –dN AB /d  = N(1+  (2C n cos(n  ))), C n = v n A v n B the two particles are in the same event, therefore share the same reaction plane When p T A = p T B, v n = sqrt(C n ) With low partner p T (below 1 GeV), the jet contribution can be ignored, but not at high p T

12 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen12 v 2 {2p}, v 3 {2p} from two particle correlations v 2 {2p} agrees with previous PHENIX measurements at low p T v 3 {2p} –Nonzero –Increases with p T (NB: may have non-flow effects in this method) –Increases with centrality v 2 {2p}, v 3 {2p}, Dash line is PHENIX v 2 measured by event plane Phys. Rev. Lett. 105, (2010)

13 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen13 2-particle (small  ) v 3 higher than reaction plane (large  v 3 should expect non-flow contribution i.e. jets Compare with v 3 measured by  3 RP 2P v3v3

14 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen14 Compare with Hydro calculation Large  gap measurement (bulk only) agrees well with hydro prediction!

15 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen15 What about non-flow in v 3 ? Use jets in p+p to calibrate! Do a Fourier analysis of the per trigger yield jet function –JF =  C n cos(n  ) –For Au+Au: combinatorial background “b 0 (1+2v 2 trig v 2 part cos2  )” removed via ZYAM –ZYAM will not change any Fourier coefficients, except C 0 and C 2 Various centrality and partner p T bins for initial insights into bulk vs. jet contributions

16 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen16 Baseline comparison Dijet (pp) and away-side suppressed dijet –pp tells us the pure jet contribution –pp nearside only: the awayside jet is fully suppressed The jets in AuAu (nearside jet + “head”) should fall in between. Fourier strength beyond this is not from the jets. –Jet-bulk contribution! v 2 of bulk (background) flow subtracted when making the jet function

17 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen17 Fourier Spectra of Jet Function v 3 from jet v 3 from jet+bulk+ jet-medium int.? No significant contribution above c4 Removing the awayside pp enhances the c odd terms The c 3 in AuAu has contributions from both jet and bulk!

18 2011/03/23 Moriond QCD 2011John Chin-Hao Chen18 summary v 2, v 3 and v 4 are measured with  n and two particle correlations. v 3 measured by two particle correlations (small  gap) are consistent with but larger than reaction plane method (large  gap) v 3 from reaction plane method agrees with hydro prediction The third Fourier coefficient in jet function is significantly enhanced in central AuAu collisions due to the v 3 from bulk, but also have some contributions from the jet
