"Vorticular fluid and Lambda Polarization in High-energy Heavy-ion Collisions"

Presented by Xin-Nian Wang, LBNL/CCNU

Friday, April 15, 2016, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions has rich vortical structures that are caused by global total orbital angular momentum and transverse evolution of longitudinal flow. Fermions (quarks in sQGP phase and baryons in the hadronic phase) in such a vorticular fluid are naturally polarized due to spin-orbital. I will discuss both local and global quark polarization and how one can use the lambda polarization in the final state to study the vortical structure and constrain the transport properties of sQGP.
