Physics Colloquium

"Transport in QCD: A Theorist's View"

Presented by Guy Moore, University of Darmstadt

Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

After summarizing the role of hydrodynamics in QCD and heavy ion physics, I will focus on what we know, theoretically, about the transport coefficients which enter hydrodynamics. I will focus on shear viscosity and heavy quark diffusion. I will explain the problems and limitations of the theoretical tools we have, and how we hope to push them a little farther — and better characterize their weaknesses.
