Description

In this talk, we will present our novel approach, implemented in PYTHIA8, of including string shoving and forming ropes with strings in a special Lorentz frame, called parallel frame, where we have a pair of strings in symmetric geometry. We will discuss results to check if this formulation can achieve the particle production yields, namely strangeness enhancement, and their v_2 as seen in data from p-p and heavy-ion collisions at the LHC and also present the challenges involved in the new implementation.
