Effect of Event-by-Event Fluctuations on Hydrodynamical Evaluation of Elliptical Flow

Andrade, Rone Peterson Galvão de; Grassi, Frédérico; Hama, Yogiro; Kodama, Takeshi; Socolowski Junior, Otavio


Elliptic flow at RHIC is computed event-by-event with NeXSPheRIO. We show that when symmetry of the particle distribution in relation to the reaction plane is assumed, there is a disagreement between the true and reconstructed elliptic flows. We suggest a possible way to take into account the asymmetry and get good agreement between these elliptic flows.
