ANDRADE, R. P. G. et al. A study of áv2ñ with NeXSPheRIO. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1a, pp.99-101. ISSN 0103-9733. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332007000100029.
Elliptic flow at RHIC is computed event by event with NeXSPheRIO. Reasonable agreement with experimental data on v2(h) and v2(pt) is obtained. Various effects are studied as well: equation of state (with or without critical point), emission mechanism (Cooper-Frye prescription or continuous emission), type of the initial conditions (average or fluctuating initial conditions).
