Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Aspects of the non-equilibrium dynamics of relativistic heavy ion collisions"

Presented by Soeren Schlichting, University of Heidelberg

Friday, May 25, 2012, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The non-equilbrium dynamics of relativistic heavy ion collisions provides one of the key challenges in our current understanding of the experiments carried out at RHIC and the LHC. In this talk I will discuss the evolution of the 'Glasma' created immediately after the collision of heavy nuclei. I will discuss the different dynamical stages which arise in this context and are characterized by the rapid growth of quantum fluctuations due to non-equilbirum instabilities, the onset of non-linear effects and ultimately the approach to thermal equilibrium. Both numerical and analytical considerations will be presented.
