Abstract: At LHC extreme values of energy density will be reached even forproton-proton collisions. Such values of energy density may be large enough togenerate a collective motion in the products of the collision, thereforegenerating effects such as elliptic flow. Using ideal 3+1D hydrodynamicalsimulations, we show that elliptic flow can occur at least for topmultiplicities p-p events at LHC and that the intensity of such effect isstrongly related to quantum fluctuations in the initial proton energydistribution.
