dc.description.abstract Differential measurements of the elliptic and triangular flow Fourier coefficients are reported for charged hadrons as a function of transverse momentum and collision centrality for Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_NN}$ = 200 GeV measured with the PHENIX detector located at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The flow coefficients, an important probe in the investigation of the quark-gluon plasma, are measured using a long-ranged two-particle correlation method where the azimuthal angles of particles about midrapidity in the central arm detectors are correlated with hits in detectors located at forward rapidity, ensuring a large pseudorapidity gap to prevent biasing due to non-flow effects. Results are also investigated in terms of the number of participants, and the geometry of the initial state nucleon configuration of the collision system such as eccentricty and transverse system size estimated using the Glauber model. Removing some of the geometric effects between the two collision systems, these results provide additional constraints for theoretical models. en_US
