**Figure 1.**Pion, kaon, and proton spectra predicted by aHydroQP compared to experimental observations by the PHENIX collaboration [19]. The panels show the centrality classes (

**a**) 0–5% and (

**b**) 30–40%.

**Figure 2.**In panel (

**a**), a comparison of the charged particle multiplicity in different centrality classes (0–25%) is shown between aHydroQP and experimental data which is taken from the PHOBOS collaboration [20]. In panel (

**b**), the elliptic flow for charged particles in 20–30% centrality class is shown where 3+1d aHydroQP predictions is compared to data taken from the PHENIX collaboration [21]. Figure is taken from [14].
