Key findings on rare particle flow in heavy ion collisions

This paper develops mathematical tools to analyze the azimuthal flow of rare particles like heavy flavor mesons in heavy ion collisions. It introduces multi-particle correlations between reference particles and particles of interest to constrain the event-by-event distribution of flow coefficients. New statistical quantities are proposed to understand correlations between reference flow and rare particle flow.
