Performance of the MPD Experiment for the Anisotropic Flow Measurements


The main goal of the future MPD experiment at collider NICA( JINR,Dubna) is to explore the QCD phase diagram in the region corresponding to the highest baryon chemical potential. Properties of such dense matter can be studied using the azimuthal anisotropy of the produced particles. Performance of the detector response based on simulations with realistic reconstruction procedure is presented for centrality determination, reaction plane estimation, directed and elliptic flow coefficients.
