    • Abstract


      We present the results of elliptic flow for the collision of nearly symmetric nuclei (10Ne20+13Al27, 18Ar40+21Sc45, 30Zn64+28Ni58, 36Kr86+41Nb93) using the quantum molecular dynamics (QMD) model. General features of elliptic flow are investigated with the help of theoretical simulations. The simulations are performed at beam energies between 45 and 105 MeV/nucleon. A significant change can be seen from in-plane to out-of-plane elliptic flow of different fragments with incident energy. A comparison with experimental data is also made. Further, we show that elliptic flow for different fragments follows power-law dependence as given by the function $C(A_{\text{tot}})^{\tau}$.
