RIKEN/BNL Lunch Time Talk

"Bose-Einstein Condensation, Isotropization, and Thermalization in Overpopulated Systems"

Presented by Jinfeng Liao, Indiana University / RBRC

Thursday, February 12, 2015, 12:30 pm — Building 510 Room 2-160

We discuss recent progress, using the kinetic theory framework, in understanding the non-equilibrium evolution of overpopulated systems that resemble the glasma during the early stage of heavy ion collisions. We analyze a number of important factors that influence the course of thermalization in such systems, and in particular their consequences for the nontrivial dynamics driving Bose-Einstein Condensation as well as the isotropization.
