Nuclear Theory/RIKEN Seminar

"Studying out-of-equilibrium Quark-Gluon Plasma with QCD kinetic"

Presented by Aleksas Mazeliauskas, University of Heidelberg

Friday, October 19, 2018, 2:00 pm — Building 510, CFNS Seminar Room 2-38

In relativistic heavy nucleus collisions an ultra-dense, high-temperature state of nuclear matter is created with de-confined quarks and gluons. Understanding how the non-equilibrium Quark-Gluon Plasma thermalizes is important in connecting the initial state physics with the emergent hydrodynamic behavior of the QGP at later times. In this talk, I will use weakly coupled QCD kinetic theory with quark and gluon degrees of freedom to study the QGP evolution in the far-from-equilibrium regime, where it exhibits universal scaling, and its approach to thermal and chemical equilibrium.
