Nuclear Physics Seminar

"Collective Expansion in High-Energy Nuclear Collisions at RHIC"

Presented by Hiroshi Masui, Lawrence Berkeley Lab

Tuesday, May 18, 2010, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Event anisotropy is one of the key observables for understand the hot and dense matter created at the early stage of relativistic heavy ion collisions at RHIC. In this talk, I will first present an overview of the recent results of elliptic flow in Au+Au collisions at RHIC. Properties of the medium will be discussed based on the experimental results and comparison with model calculations.
Finally I will discuss the advantages in using the collisions of deformed nuclei like U+U at RHIC.
