While no P- or CP-violation has ever been observed in the strong
sector of the Standard Model, there is no first principles reason
for it not to be present. Theoretical calculations have shown the
possibility of P-violating bubbles in the QCD vacuum, which in
combination with the strong magnetic field created in off-central
heavy-ion collisions leads to the Chiral Magnetic Effect...

The hot QCD matter produced in any heavy ion collision with a nonzero impact
parameter is produced within a strong magnetic field.
We study the imprint that these fields leave on the azimuthal distributions and
correlations of the produced charged hadrons.
The magnetic field is time-dependent and the medium is expanding, which leads to the induction of
charged currents due to the...

Recently, the STAR Collaboration has reported a strong dependence of
the elliptic flow of positive and negative pions on the net charge
density [1]. This measurement attracted a lot of community attention,
as the signal appeared to be of the magnitude and the sign of that
predicted by the theory of the Chiral Magnetic Wave [2]. At the same
time the interpretation of the results and...

Motivated by two- and four-particle azimuthal correlation measurements that suggest possible collective flow for charged particles emitted in pPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ =5.02 TeV, we extend the correlation results for these collisions using the six- and eight-particle cumulant methods, and the Lee-Yang Zeros method. CMS has an extensive program studying azimuthal harmonic coefficients...

We report on measurements of the anisotropy of charged particles in lead-lead collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV, using multi-particle cumulants calculated with the generating function method. The results on the transverse momentum, pseudorapidity and centrality dependence of the elliptic flow (v2) obtained from two-, four-, six- and eight-particle cumulants are presented....

We propose a new, universal parametrization of the probability distribution of initial anisotropies in proton-proton, proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions. The distribution of fluctuation-driven anisotropies, such as the initial triangularity $\varepsilon_3$, is described by a one-parameter power distribution. When a mean anisotropy in the reaction plane is also present, as in the...

Two-particle long-range pseudorapidity ($\Delta$$\eta$) correlations are observed in pPb collisions at the LHC. Previous correlation measurements have been averaged over both the trigger and associated particle $\eta$. In order to explore the possible pseudorapidity dependence of the long-range correlations in asymmetric pPb collisions, a new analysis of two-particle correlations with trigger...

The observation of long-range correlations on the near- and away-side (also known as the double-ridge) in high-multiplicity p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV and its similarity to Pb-Pb collisions remains one of the open questions from the p-Pb run at the Large Hadron Collider. It has been attributed to mechanisms that involve initial-state effects, such as gluon saturation and...

Detailed measurement of the Fourier harmonics ($v_n$) associated with the
azimuthal modulation of two-particle correlation structures over
$-5 < \delta\eta < 5$ in 31 nb$^{-1}$ p + Pb collisions are presented. The $v_n$
results are presented as a function of $p_T$, \eta, and event activity

Traditionally $p(d)$$+$A collisions at RHIC and the LHC were considered as
a tool to study cold nuclear matter effects. Production of the hot and
dense medium in such collisions was not expected. However recent
measurements has challenged this assumption with the observation of
long-range correlations in angular distributions of hadron pairs
with low transverse momentum. The observed...

Observation of a long-range near-side two-particle correlation (known as the "Ridge") in high-multiplicity pp and pPb collisions opened up new opportunities of exploring novel QCD dynamics in small collision systems. To further investigate the origin of this phenomenon, new measurements of two-particle correlations with identified $\pi^0$, $K^0_s$ and Lambda trigger particles in 5.02 TeV pPb...

The IP-Glasma initial state model [1,2] coupled to relativistic viscous fluid dynamics successfully describes particle spectra, anisotropic flow, and its fluctuations in central to mid-central heavy-ion collisions [3]. Here we extend the study to more peripheral events and determine if the description remains robust. We then perform a direct comparison of peripheral A+A events with p+A and p+p...

We perform 3+1D viscous hydrodynamic calculations of proton-nucleus
and nucleus-nucleus collisions. The goal is to ascertain the nature
of the striking correlations seen in recent proton-nucleus collisions.
In particular, one would like to know: is the observed ridge a
signature of collective behavior? Can the highest multiplicity
collision systems be accurately described as a...

We construct a model of baryon diffusion which has the desired properties of causality and analyticity. The model also has the desired property of colored noise, meaning that the noise correlation function is not a Dirac delta function in space and time; rather, it depends on multiple time and length constants. The model can readily be incorporated in 3+1 dimensional 2nd order viscous...

The midrapidity slope d$v_1$/d$y$ of the directed flow $v_1$ has been predicted to be sensitive to the possible first-order phase transition between the hadron gas and the quark-gluon
plasma. The recent STAR data from the RHIC beam energy scan (BES) show that the net-proton d$v_1$/d$y$ changes sign twice within the collision energy range 7.7 - 39 GeV. To further investigate this phenomenon,...

With increasing beam energies the angular momentum of the fireball in peripheral heavy ion collisions is increasing. The earlier predicted rotation effect and Kelvin Helmholtz Instability, leads to space-time momentum correlations among the emitted particles. For these reactions two particle correlations are studied. A specific combination of two particle correlation measurements is proposed,...

Multidimensional and one-dimensional quantum-statistical (Bose-Einstein) correlations are measured in proton-proton collisions at 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV, and in proton-lead collisions at 5.02 TeV/nucleon pair center-of-mass energy with the CMS detector at the LHC. The correlation functions are extracted in terms of different components of the relative momentum of the pair, in order to investigate...

Two-pion Bose-Einstein correlations are often used to extract the radius of the particle emitting source at freeze-out. The extraction of the radii in low multiplicity systems is complicated by the presence of background correlations such as mini-jets. Such backgrounds can be suppressed through the use of three-pion cumulant correlations. We present two- and three-pion Bose-Einstein...

The initial density distribution in a heavy ion collision fluctuates
due to the finite number of participating nucleons, which leads to
higher harmonic flow as recently measured at RHIC and the LHC. Such
spatial fluctuations may be preserved until kinetic freeze-out,
depending on the strength of the initial fluctuations, the flow
profile, the expansion time, and viscosity of the created...

Recent results obtained at RHIC and the LHC have revealed the presence
of unexpected collective effects in central $p(d)$$+$A collisions.
Different techniques and physical observables have been utilized to
understand whether these collective effects have a similar origin to
heavy ion collisions or can be explained solely by cold nuclear matter
effects. Two-pion Bose-Einstein correlation...

Femtoscopy of non-central heavy-ion collisions provides access to information on the geometry of the effective pion-emitting source. In particular, its shape can be studied by measuring femtoscopic radii as a function of the emission angle relative to the collision plane of symmetry.
We present the first measurements of azimuthally differential femtoscopy in Pb-Pb collisions $\sqrt{s_{\rm...
