Initial fluctuations in hydrodynamic fields such as energy density, flow
velocity or shear stress provide an interesting chance to better understand
initial state and equilibration physics as well as thermodynamic and transport
properties. We use a mode resolved description with a background-fluctuation
splitting and a Bessel-Fourier expansion for the fluctuating fields for a
complete characterization of initial conditions, the fluid dynamical propagation
of single modes, the study of interaction effects between modes, the
determination of the associated particle spectra and the generalization of the
whole program to event-by-event correlations and probability distributions.
