Long-range collectivity in small collision-systems with two- and four-particle correlations @ STAR

27 May 2020  ·  Lacey Roy A. for the STAR Collaboration ·

New STAR differential and integral v{2,3} measurements that explicitly account for non-flow contributions are reported for p/d/3He+Au, collisions at Roots=200 GeV. The measurements, which leverage the two-particle correlators for p/d/3He+Au and minimum-bias p+p collisions in tandem with three well-established methods of non-flow subtraction, are observed to be method-independent... For comparable multiplicities, they further indicate system-independent v2{2} and v3{2} values that are consistent with the critical role of both size (N{ch}) and the subnucleonic-fluctuations-driven eccentricities e{2,3} but are inconsistent with the notion of shape engineering in p/d/3He+Au collisions. The scaling function derived from the measurements, confirm the important role of final-state effects across a broad spectrum of collision-system sizes and energies and suggests an increase in eta/s(T,muB) for small collision-systems. read more
