Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Monte-Carlo simulation of heavy-ion collisions"

Presented by Bjoern Schenke, McGill University

Friday, August 27, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

I present the Modular Algorithm for Relativistic Treatment of heavy IoN Interactions (MARTINI), a Monte-Carlo simulation of high energy heavy-ion collisions. Its main components are PYTHIA 8.1, a time evolution model for the soft background, and a parton evolution scheme, currently the McGill-AMY formalism including radiative as well as elastic processes.
MARTINI generates full event configurations in the high p_T region that take into account thermal QCD and QED effects as well as effects of the evolving medium. I will show latest results for hard observables in Au+Au and Cu+Cu collisions at RHIC energies, using different fluid-dynamic calculations for the soft background evolution.
I further present first correlation studies and discuss MARTINI's potential to provide input for full jet reconstruction algorithms.
