Momentum Anisotropy of Leptons from Two Photon Processes in Heavy Ion Collisions

13 Nov 2020 Xiao Bo-Wen Yuan Feng Zhou Jian

We investigate the azimuthal angular correlation between the lepton transverse momentum $P_\perp$ and the impact parameter $b_\perp$ in non-central heavy-ion collisions, where the leptons are produced through two-photon scattering. Among the Fourier harmonic coefficients, a significant $v_4$ asymmetry is found for the typical kinematics at RHIC and LHC with a mild dependence on the $P_\perp$, whereas $v_2$ is power suppressed by the lepton mass over $P_\perp$...
