Event-by-event pre-equilibrium dynamics in high-energy heavy-ion collisions
Tuesday, April 24, 3:30pm
Riddick Hall, 400P

We develop a macroscopic description of the space-time evolution of the Quark-Gluon plasma (QGP)
during the pre-equilibrium stage of a high-energy heavy-ion collision. Based on an effective kinetic
kinetic description of the microscopic equilibration process, we calculate the non-equilibrium evolution
of the local background energy-momentum tensor as well as the non-equilibrium linear response to... [More - PDF]
