Sensitivity of the transverse flow towards symmetry energy

By Sakshi Gautam, Aman D Sood, Rajeev K Puri and J. Aichelin

Abstract

We study the sensitivity of transverse flow towards symmetry energy in the Fermi energy region as well as at high energies. We find that transverse flow is sensitive to symmetry energy as well as its density dependence in the Fermi energy region. We also show that the transverse flow can address the symmetry energy at densities about twice the saturation density, however it shows the insensitivity towards the symmetry energy at densities $\rho/\rho_{0}$ $>$ 2. The mechanism for the sensitivity of transverse flow towards symmetry energy as well as its density dependence is also discussed.Comment: Phys. Rev. C (in press)2011 14 pages, 6 figure
