"Anatomy of Azimuthal Angle Correlations in Large and Small Systems - Why the fuss?"

Presented by Roy Lacey, Stony Brook University

Tuesday, June 6, 2017, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Azimuthal momentum anisotropy measurements are ubiquitous at both RHIC and the LHC. However, there are pervasive misconceptions as to the mechanistic origin of this anisotropy in both small and large systems. In this talk, I will demonstrate how recent momentum anisotropy measurements, for a broad range of systems, have been leveraged to gain new mechanistic insights and to constrain the properties of the medium produced in these collisions. In particular, the role of final state effects versus initial state momentum domain effects in explanations of the measurements will be addressed.
