We calculate the Λ polarization in an exact analytical, rotating model based on parameters extracted from a high resolution (3+1)D particle-in-cell relativistic hydrodynamics calculation. The polarization is attributed to effects from thermal vorticity and for the first time the effects of the radial and axial acceleration are also studied separately.
