"Spectral Densities for Hot QCD Plasmas in a Leading-Log Approximation"

Presented by Juhee Hong, SUNY Stony Brook

Friday, June 4, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The leading-log Boltzmann equation is solved numerically with non-trivial boundary conditions. We present the spectral densities of J^\mu and T^\mu\nu at small frequencies : current, shear, sound, bulk, and transverse tensor channel. They exhibit a smooth transition from free streaming quasi-particles to ideal hydrodynamics. This transition is analyzed with second order hydrodynamics and compared with AdS/CFT.
