  5. Why measure flow? • Flow is thought to be generated by compression in the early stages of the collision • Flow probes the thermalization of the system • Elliptic and directed flow probe the evolution of the system M.B.Tonjes, PHOBOS

  6. Flow z Reaction plane M. Kaneta y x v1 v2 Flow measured by decomposing the azimuthal angle particle distributions into Fourier components: directed flow elliptic flow M.B.Tonjes, PHOBOS

  7. Measuring flow in PHOBOS Hit-based method Track-based method h f h • Large h coverage • Event-by-event • Uniform acceptance in  • Separated subevents • Does not require large event sample • Measures pt dependence of v2 • Use of tracks reduces background effects and reduces MC dependence • Subevents and tracks widely separated in h M.B.Tonjes, PHOBOS

  23. Conclusions • v2 vs pt demonstrates that we do not measure significant non-flow effects • v2 has been measured as a function of h and centrality over a large range in pseudorapidity • v1 has been measured over a range of energies from 19.6 to 200 GeV over a large region of h in PHOBOS • v1 clearly changes behavior from low (19.6 GeV) to high (200 GeV) energy • v1 in the mid-h’ region is reminiscent of limiting fragmentation M.B.Tonjes, PHOBOS
