Bulk observables at 5.02 TeV using quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics

17 Aug 2020  ·  Mubarak Alqahtani, Michael Strickland ·

We present comparisons between 3+1D quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics (aHydroQP) predictions for a large set of bulk observables and experimental data collected in 5.02 TeV Pb-Pb collisions. We make aHydroQP predictions for identified hadron spectra, identified hadron average transverse momentum, charged particle multiplicity as a function of pseudorapidity, the kaon-to-pion ($K/\pi$) and proton-to-pion ($p/\pi$) ratios, and integrated elliptic flow... We compare to data collected by the ALICE collaboration in 5.02 TeV Pb-Pb collisions. We find that these bulk observables are quite well described by aHydroQP with an assumed initial central temperature of $T_0=630$ MeV at $\tau_0 = 0.25$ fm/c and a constant specific shear viscosity of $\eta/s=0.159$ and a peak specific bulk viscosity of $\zeta/s = 0.048$. In particular, we find that the momentum dependence of the kaon-to-pion ($K/\pi$) and proton-to-pion ($p/\pi$) ratios reported recently by the ALICE collaboration are extremely well described by aHydroQP in the most central collisions. read more
