dc.description.abstractWe report the first measurements of the kurtosis (κ [kappa]), skewness (S), and variance (σ [sigma] [superscript 2]) of net-proton multiplicity (N [subscript p]-N [subscript p̅] ) distributions at midrapidity for Au+Au collisions at √sNN=19.6, 62.4, and 200 GeV corresponding to baryon chemical potentials (μ [mu] B) between 200 and 20 MeV. Our measurements of the products κ [kappa]σ [sigma][superscript 2] and Sσ [sigma], which can be related to theoretical calculations sensitive to baryon number susceptibilities and long-range correlations, are constant as functions of collision centrality. We compare these products with results from lattice QCD and various models without a critical point and study the √sNN dependence of κ [kappa] σ [sigma] [superscript 2]. From the measurements at the three beam energies, we find no evidence for a critical point in the QCD phase diagram for μ [mu] [subscript B] below 200 MeV.en_US
