Nuclear Theory/RIKEN Seminar

"What can we learn from flow observables in heavy-ion collisions?"

Presented by Jacquelyn Noronha-Hostler, Rutgers University

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 12:30 pm — Building 510, Room 2-160

The Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP), nature's first and most perfect liquid, has been successfully reproduced in heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and the LHC. The dynamics of the QGP can be well described by relativistic viscous hydrodynamics, allowing for precise comparisons to experimental data in order to extract the properties of the QGP. While a small shear viscosity is well-established, questions still remain regarding the precise initial state, the temperature dependence of viscosity, the smallest system that displays QGP-like properties, and the equation of state at large densities. In this talk, the various flow harmonic observables are analyzed to help answer these remaining questions.
