Physics Colloquium

"Thermalization and hydrodynamization in heavy-ion collisions at high energies"

Presented by Aleksi Kurkela, CERN and Univ. of Stavenger

Tuesday, February 14, 2017, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Describing heavy-ion collisions as hydrodynamical explosions of liquid of quarks and
gluons has been a tremendous phenomenological success.
A major uncertainty in such modeling arises from what happens during the first 1fm/c of the evolution
during which the system is far from local thermal equilibrium.
I will describe how the postcollision debris start behaving hydrodynamically, and how the
phenomenological modeling of the prehydrodynamical evolution can be improved.
