Title: Preliminary flow analysis in experiment E917 at the AGS.

Abstract

The study of directed flow in heavy ion collisions as a probe of collision dynamics has been of heightened interest to the physics community in recent years. The E917 collaboration is addressing this interest by investigating signatures of flow as a function of rapidity and centrality for fixed target gold on gold collisions at 11.7A GeV/c. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate E917's capability to establish the reaction plane on an event-by-event basis and present preliminary results of the proton data collected at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Alternating Gradient Synchrotrons (AGS) facility.
