PACIAE 2.2.1: An updated issue of the parton and hadron cascade model PACIAE 2.2
The parton and hadron cascade model PACIAE 2.2 (cf. Yan et al. (2018) ) has been upgraded to the new issue of PACIAE 2.2.1 with the chiral magnetic effect (CME). The charge correlation parameter, γ^ss and γ^os, which is typically used to “detect” the CME, is calculated by PACIAE 2.2.1 in Au+Au and Pb+Pb collisions, and the result is consistent with the STAR and ALICE data. As an example, PACIAE 2.2.1 model is employed to mimic the pseudorapidity distribution (dN_ch/dη) and transverse momentum spectra (p_T) of charged particles in non-central Au+Au collisions at RHIC energy and Pb+Pb collisions at LHC energy. The chiral magnetic effect is found to partly affect the final-state basic observables in relativistic nuclear collisions. By this new issue a more realistic dynamical evolution of relativistic nuclear collisions can be depicted.
