Title: Hanbury-Brown–Twiss correlation functions and radii from event-by-event hydrodynamics

Abstract

Hanbury-Brown–Twiss correlation functions and radii from event-by-event hydrodynamics (HoTCoffeeh) is a novel computational tool which determines Hanbury-Brown–Twiss (HBT) charged-pion ( π + ) correlation functions and radii for event-by-event hydrodynamics with fluctuating initial conditions in terms of Cooper–Frye integrals, including resonance-decay contributions. Here, we review the basic formalism for computing the HBT correlation functions and radii with resonance-decay contributions included and discuss our implementation of this formalism in the form of HoTCoffeeh. This tool may easily be integrated with other numerical packages [see, e.g., [Comput. Phys. Commun. 199, 61 (2016)]] for the purpose of simulating the evolution of heavy-ion collisions and thereby extracting predictions for heavy-ion observables.
