Fluctuations of charge separation perpendicular to the event plane and local parity violation in √S[subscript NN] = 200 GeV Au + Au collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

Previous experimental results based on data (∼15 × 10[superscript 6] events) collected by the STAR detector at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider suggest event-by-event charge-separation fluctuations perpendicular to the event plane in noncentral heavy-ion collisions. Here we present the correl...
