Universal scaling of the rapidity dependent elliptic flow and the perfect fluid at RHIC
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: QUARK MATTER 2005 - Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Ultra-Relativistic Nucleus--Nucleus Collisions (Nuclear Physics A)
The pseudo-rapidity dependence of the elliptic flow at various excitation energies measured by the PHOBOS Collaboration in Au+Au collisions at RHIC is one of the surprising results that has not been explained before in terms of hydrodynamical models. Here we show that these data are in agreement with theoretical predictions based on perfect fluid hydrodynamics. We also show that these PHOBOS data satisfy the universal scaling relation predicted by the Buda-Lund hydrodynamical model, based on exact solutions of perfect fluid hydrodynamics.
