Abstract

In this paper heavy quark energy loss models are embedded in full event-by-event viscous hydrodynamic simulations to investigate the nuclear suppression factor and the azimuthal anisotropy of D0 mesons in PbPb collisions at sNN=5.02TeV in the pT range 8-40GeV. In our model calculations, the RAA of D0 mesons is consistent with experimental data from the CMS experiment. We present the first calculations of heavy flavor cumulants v2{2} and v3{2} (and also discuss v2{4}), which is also consistent with experimental data. Event-shape engineering techniques are used to compute the event-by-event correlation between the soft hadron vn and the heavy meson vn. We predict a linear correlation between these observables on an event-by-event basis.
