Abstract

We present STAR results on the elliptic flow v2 of charged hadrons, strange and multistrange particles from sNN=200 GeV Au+Au collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The detailed study of the centrality dependence of v2 over a broad transverse momentum range is presented. Comparisons of different analysis methods are made in order to estimate systematic uncertainties. To discuss the nonflow effect, we have performed the first analysis of v2 with the Lee-Yang zero method for KS0 and Λ. In the relatively low pT region, pT≤2GeV/c, a scaling with mT-m is observed for identified hadrons in each centrality bin studied. However, we do not observe v2(pT) scaled by the participant eccentricity to be independent of centrality. At higher pT,2≤pT≤6GeV/c,v2 scales with quark number for all hadrons studied. For the multistrange hadron Ω, which does not suffer appreciable hadronic interactions, the values of v2 are consistent with both mT-m scaling at low pT and number-of-quark scaling at intermediate pT. As a function of collision centrality, an increase of pT-integrated v2 scaled by the participant eccentricity has been observed, indicating a stronger collective flow in more central Au+Au collisions.
