Abstract: We compute v4-v2^2 in ideal and viscous hydrodynamics. We investigate itssensitivity to details of the hydrodynamic model and compare the results toexperimental data from RHIC. Whereas v2 has a significant sensitivity only toinitial eccentricity and viscosity while being insensitive to freeze outtemperature, we find that v4-v2^2 is quite insensitive to initialeccentricity. On the other hand, it can still be sensitive to shear viscosityin addition to freeze out temperature, although viscous effects do notuniversally increase v4-v2^2 as originally predicted. Consistent with data,we find no dependence on particle species. We also make a prediction forv4-v2^2 in heavy ion collisions at the LHC.
