A numerical approach is to • numerically determine C(K,q) from S(K,q) • C(K,q) ~ 1 + exp[ -qs2Rs2(K) – q02Ro2(K) – ql2Rl2(K)-2qlqoRlo2(K)] • there is an “exact” calculation of these radii (full integrations) • there are lower-order and higher-order approximations (from series expansion of Bessel functions). • The lowest-order form for Rs was used in Phenix PRL. (A similar expression is used by NA49). • The higher-order approximation is very good when compared to the exact calculation for Rs and RL. What I’m doing QM2002: Particle Yields I**Important Assumptions Used. . .**As is also assumed in calculating particle spectra Integration over is done exactly. • Boost invariance (vL = z/t). Space-time rapidity equals flow rapidity • Infinitely long in y. • In LCMS, y and L = 0. • Integrals expressed in terms of the modified Bessel functions: For HBT radii, approximations are used in integration over x and y. • Saddle point integration using “approximate” saddle point • Series expansion of Bessel functions • Assume mT/T>1 QM2002: Particle Yields I**Calculating the HBT Radii**Linear flow rapidity profile Defined weight function Fn f = 0 Rs f = 0.3 f = 0.6 f = 0.9 T = 150 MeV, R = 3 fm, 0 = 3 fm/c parameters geometric radius R freeze-out temperature T flow rapidity at surface f freeze-out proper time 0 Constants are determined up to order 3 from Bessel function expansion QM2002: Particle Yields I**The Analytical Evaluation of the HBT Radii**Linear flow rapidity profile Up to order 3 in Bessel function expansion QM2002: Particle Yields I
