Hydrodynamic predictions for Pb+Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV
AbstractPredictions and comparisons of hadronic flow observables for Pb+Pb collisions at 2.76 and 5.02 TeV are presented using a hydrodynamics + hadronic cascade hybrid approach. Initial conditions are generated via a new formulation of the IP-Glasma model and then evolved using relativistic viscous hydrodynamics and finally fed into transport cascade in the hadronic phase. The results of this work show excellent agreement with the recent charged hadron anisotropic flow measurements from the ALICE Collaboration of Pb+Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV. Event-by-event distributions of charged hadron vn, flow event-plane correlations, and flow factorization breaking ratios are compared with existing measurements at 2.76 TeV, and are predicted at 5.02 TeV. Further predictions of identified hadron observables (for both light and multistrange hadrons), such as pT-spectra and anisotropic flow coefficients, are presented.
