Superhorizon fluctuations and acoustic oscillations in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions

Saumia Pandiat Sankar, Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar, India and GPP, UdeM, Montréal

We show that there are crucial similarities in the physics of cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR) anisotropies and the flow anisotropies in relativistic heavy-ion collision experiments (RHICE). We also argue that, following CMBR anisotropy analysis, a plot of root-mean square values of the flow coefficients, calculated in a lab fixed frame for RHICE, can yield important information about the nature of initial state anisotropies and their evolution.
