Average relative D-meson yield as a function of the relative V0A multiplicity at backward rapidity in different $\pt$ intervals. The systematic uncertainties on the data normalisation ($\pm3.1\%$), on the $\Nvzero \big/ \langle \Nvzero \rangle$ values ($\pm5.0\%$), and on the feed-down contribution are not shown in this figure The calculations of EPOS 3.116 with and without hydro are also shown. The coloured lines represent the calculation curves, whereas the shaded bands represent their statistical uncertainties at given values of $N_\mathrm{V0A} \Big/ \langle N_\mathrm{V0A} \rangle$ A diagonal (dashed) line is also shown to guide the eye | |
