### Abstract

We present a class of analytic solutions of nonrelativistic fireball hydrodynamics for a fairly general class of equation of state. The presented solution describes the expansion of a triaxial ellipsoid that rotates around one of its principal axes. We calculate the hadronic final state observables such as single-particle spectra, directed, elliptic, and third flows, as well as two-particle Bose-Einstein (also named HBT) correlations and corresponding radius parameters, utilizing simple analytic formulas. The final tilt angle of the fireball, an important observable quantity, is shown to be not independent of its exact definition: one gets different tilt angles from the geometrical anisotropies, from the single-particle spectra, and from HBT measurements. Taken together, the tilt angle in the momentum space and in the relative momentum or HBT variable may be sufficient for the determination of the magnitude of the rotation of the fireball. We argue that observing this rotation and its dependence on collision energy could characterize the softest point of the equation of state. Thus determining the rotation may be a powerful tool for the experimental search for the critical point in the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter.
