The centrality dependence of the three-particle correlator defined in Eq.2. The circles indicate the ALICE results obtained from the cumulant analysis. The stars show the STAR data from [8]. The triangles represent the genuine three-particle correlations ($\langle \cos(\varphi_{\alpha} + \varphi_{\beta} -2\varphi_c) \rangle$) from HIJING corrected for the experimentally measured v$_2\{2\}$. Points are displaced horizontally for visibility. A model prediction for the same sign correlations incorporating the Chiral Magnetic Effect for LHC energies is shown by the solid line. The shaded band represents the centrality dependence of the charge independent correlations. |
