Abstract The iEBE-VISHNU code package performs event-by-event simulations for relativistic heavy-ion collisions using a hybrid approach based on ( 2 + 1 )-dimensional viscous hydrodynamics coupled to a hadronic cascade model. We present the detailed model implementation, accompanied by some numerical code tests for the package. iEBE-VISHNU forms the core of a general theoretical framework for model-data comparisons through large scale Monte-Carlo simulations. A numerical interface between the hydrodyn... Title of program: iEBE-VISHNU Catalogue Id: AEYA_v1_0 Nature of problem Relativistic heavy-ion collisions are tiny in size (V ~ 10 -42 m 3 ) and live in a flash (~ 5 x 10 -23 s). It is impossible to use external probes to study the properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a novel state of matter created during the collisions. Experiments can only measure the momentum information of stable hadrons, who are the remnants of the collisions. In order to extract the thermal and transport properties of the QGP, one needs to rely on Monte-Carlo event-by-event model simul ...
