Abstract

We present the present status of the E877 studies of anisotropic transverse flow at the AGS energy. Flow is quantified by Fourier analysis of the azimuthal distributions of transverse energy and charged particle multiplicity. Additionally, the mean transverse momentum of identified particle spectra with respect to the reaction plane are measured near the beam rapidity. Analysis shows the presence of nucleon flow at AGS energies and a small pion flow in the direction opposite to that of the nucleon.
